Friday – the lead in

by Joanne on February 6, 2009

Another week absolutely flew by. Now it’s Friday, the prelude to the weekend.  No plans… not yet anyway. 

Both of us got up early yesterday and today in order to work off some of that Key West fat we accumulated earlier in the week.  It was worth it….the fat accumulation of course.     

This morning was a long walk with my main “dog”, Shane.  We went 4.23 miles under an hour.  It was wonderful walking weather, no wind, the roads were clear. We actually saw two other dog walkers and had our usual encounter with walker “Dude”. 

The nutrition to get me walking and to fuel my day went a little like this:

1/2 scoop Smooth Banana Whey Protein – pre – walk

Breakfast:  1/4 cup Bob’s Red Mill Steel Cut Oats with 1 TBS Pumpkin and 1/2 tsp Pumpkin spice. I added 1 tsp honey and 1 chopped fig.

My breakfast protein shake was 1 scoop Smooth Banana Whey Pro with 1/2 cup blueberries.  Oh So BLLLUUUEEEEGotta check your teeth after drinking a shake with berries.. you know…. the seeds?!!!!

I was still having sweet cravings so I scooped, just under a TBS , Naturally More Peanut Butter to “chew” on.

The morning snack was 1/2 cup Stonyfield Farms Fat Free Plain Yogurt with chopped apple.

Lunch was a HUGE salad of baby spinach, a radish, 3 cherry tomatoes, some broccoli slaw, chopped red bell pepper, 3 oz Tuna, 1/4 wild rice, 3 TBS F/F Raspberry Vinaigrette.  I added some baby carrots with Red Pepper Hummus on the side.

I’m STILL having issues with my ear. It keeps popping. Flying into Charlotte, NC, I had the worst pain in my ear. Then it took a good day to “unplug”.  Now, after the flight home, it STILL feels plugged and keeps popping when I swallow. Most annoying!      I feel like doing a hand stand, then having Ted grab my legs to give me a good shake.  Maybe that would unplug the PLUG!

Tonight both Ted and I decided we have had enough of dining out for the week so we may wander around Utica and grab a snack if we feel like it. May meet up with friends… but we won’t embark on this exciting adventure until a little later… maybe 7PM.  I’m not even sure I feel like happy hour tonight.  We’ll have to wait and see what 5 PM brings.

So until to-mally… have a great night!
