Things I Like


Negative calories and rainbows

Ah Monday again.  Kind of rainy, spotty day.  I was hoping to get a ride in today.  Normally I don’t ride on Mondays, but since there was no big ride this weekend, my legs feel quite good and rested.  However, it was drizzling when I got up.

I made up some breakfast to get me going:

Yum!  I worked for a bit and then decided to at least get some walking in before more rain came.  I did about 40 minutes and I actually did a few jogging intervals in with the walking just because.  They felt fine.  A little funny feeling in my left quad, but not bad.  Of course, the intervals were never the problem with the running – it was the longer running.  I’m not going anywhere with this, but I just found it interesting that I had a small desire to do the intervals.

Lunch time.  Increasing some carbs, so I had a baked potato with ground turkey and BBQ sauce.

Love the blueberries?  I do, too.  There is an article on livestrong that states that blueberries are a negative calorie food, meaning that it takes more calories to burn than eat.  Other than the general phooey-ness of the idea of negative calorie foods, as I stated on FB, they have never seen me put away blueberries.  This is a cup of blueberries.  80 calories.  I burn about 70 calories an hour if I am just sitting there.  Now, I can eat this cup of blueberries in about 1o minutes if I take my time.  I could eat several more cups as well if I chose to (which I don’t unless I am blueberry picking).  Do that math and see how negative it ends up.

Work slowed down in the afternoon (typical Monday) and I walked down to the local Agway to get some annuals for my containers finds from the attic.  Nice thing about buying annuals at this time of year is that you can get a bargain on them.  4 plants for 6 bucks and change.

I normally don’t care for petunias very much, but I really liked the cool color on these.

Hopefully I can get them potted in the next couple days.  Got back in time for this break!

I also felt really hungry, so I got one of these.  I do like these.

Work was such a slog today.  I need to get in all of my lines and extra the next few days because I will be leaving on Friday for my Becoming an Outdoorswoman.  I am looking forward to that weekend for sure.  Friday afternoon I will be on the lake in a kayak.  Hopefully right side up.

Dinner was easy and fast tonight as I had to get back to work.  Sauteed broccoli, shrimp, cooked brown rice, and ginger orange sauce.

So tasty.

I was also nibbling on these tonight.

Banana chips.  Very addictive.

Post dinner rainbow – make a wish!

I have more work to do tonight.  Hopefully making a guitar video as well, but not sure I will have the time.  One of my goals of the month and I am falling a bit behind with them.

I also am going to have a big bowl of strawberries.  Negative calorie food, you know  :wink:
