Hey guys! Happy Sunday. I hope that you’re having a good weekend so far. Mine has been quite solid. Last night was a lot of fun. We met up with a couple of friends for dinner in Salem (I had a delicious wasabi slaw salad with sesame broiled scallops) and then to a little cafe with music for dessert. It was lovely.
My first banana bread came out really well. I was a little nervous because I halved the flour and used oats instead and also added some apple sauce and reduced the sugar. Oh yeah, and I added chocolate chips. :)
Brian had to leave early this morning for a 10 mile race in Amherst this morning – he did awesomely, finishing in 1 hr and 4 minutes. I opted to sleep in and cheer him on from here. :) I woke up naturally around 9 and took the doggie for a walk.
Breakfast was delicious. A 1 egg 2 egg white scramble with green bell pepper, mushrooms and tomato drizzled with ketchup and served with a light whole wheat English muffin topped with some veggie cream cheese.
I was kind of lazy after breakfast. I did manage to do some dishes and clean up a bit though, so it wasn’t a wash. After enough loafing around, I did the Jillian Michaels No More Trouble Zones video from Exercise TV. It seemed kind of truncated – like parts were missing – but it was still a great workout. After that, I went downstairs and ran a quick uphill mile on the treadmill. I was definitely spent afterwards.
After a shower it was time for lunch. I used some of the leftover linguini from Friday and sauteed some orange bell pepper, steamed some broccoli and made a peanut sauce with soy sauce, some water and red pepper flake. It was delicious.
This afternoon, I’m meeting a friend at Barnes and Noble to read some magazines and sip some tea. Its a favorite past time of ours and I’m looking forward to it. If I can get my butt in gear, I may even look into doing some shopping beforehand!
Hope you guys have a great afternoon.
