I’ve been tracking the progress of my new Nikon D3000 digital SLR camera through Amazon.com every day, and it wasn’t supposed to arrive until tomorrow, but *HOORAY* it arrived early. I couldn’t use it last night ( ! ) because I needed to charge the battery, but you better believe it was put to use first thing this morning!
I bet you can guess who I chose as my first victim…
I’m so happy to finally have a camera that can take indoor pictures that aren’t fuzzy and don’t require a flash that make Sadie’s eyes reflect so she looks like some possessed devil dog.
I already have plans to take Sadie to the dog park tonight to take pictures of her in action and really see what this camera is made of!
Of course I used my new little toy to snap pictures of my breakfast. While I showered, I let a small batch of steel cut oats simmer on the stove.
I wanted something chocolatey for breakfast (don’t I always?), so I added a tablespoon of cocoa powder and half of a scoop of All the Whey chocolate peanut butter cup protein powder to the oats and stirred ‘em up.
This mix was oh-so-chocolatey. If I wasn’t a brownie batter connoisseur you might be able to convince me that this mixture was some odd form of brownie batter. Okay, maybe not, but it really was delicious!
This was a great post-workout breakfast. I did the same 50 minute treadmill workout that I did on Tuesday and it got my heart thumpin’ and my body dripping sweat. One reader asked the distance logged and calories burned for this workout and so I made sure to take note today. I did about 4.45 miles in 50 minutes (including the 5 minute cool-down which I did at a 3.8 pace on a 6.0 incline) and I burned just shy of 570 calories.
When I got home from the gym Ryan commented on my red face. I definitely sweat more and burned more calories doing this workout with varying speeds/intensities than I do when I run five miles. It’s nice to incorporate some incline walking and some faster running to fight boredom and work your heart in a different way… the extra calories burned it just icing on the cake. (Oooh… cake…)
Oh, hey, did you know there’s only one more day until Friday? Something to make you smile, I hope.
