Good afternoon! I hope your Wednesday is trucking along without a hitch.
Like yesterday, the weather in Ocala today is dreary. Sadie is depressed but I am thriving.
Rainy weather does wonders for my productivity. I drinks lots of coffee and get in the zone.
Today’s workout started nice and early as usual. Ryan and I drove to the gym a little after 5 a.m. and I tackled another total body workout from Tina’s Best Body Boot Camp.
Like Monday’s workout, Tina broke up the strength training exercises with 90 seconds of “active recovery” that included core exercises and killer heart rate-rising moves like mountain climbers. (I scaled the mountain climbers back to 60 seconds. They kill me!)
When we arrived home it was time for breakfast.
I ate a filling bowl of scrambled eggs while working on my morning blog post.
In the bowl:
- 3 eggs
- Shredded mozzarella cheese
Avocado, I adore you.
Lunchtime snuck up on me today.
All of the sudden it was noon and I was hungry and impatient. Those two feelings seem to coincide rather frequently, don’t you think?
I fixed myself a quick lunch plate that included salmon salad and leftover roasted Brussels sprouts.
To make the salmon salad, I combined:
- 3 – 4 ounces salmon
- 1/2 orange pepper, sliced
- Raw sweet corn cut off the cob
- 1/2 cucumber, sliced
- 2 tablespoons light mayo
- 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
- 2 tablespoons sweet relish
- Sprinkle of dill
When the folks at Laughing Cow went me some of their cream cheese spreads to sample last week, they came with a few packages of Thomas’ Bagel Thins and I rounded out today’s lunch with a toasted whole wheat Bagel Thin topped with honey and Laughing Cow cream cheese.
And that catches us up!
While I love the cozy feeling of a rainy day, I’m hoping the thunderstorms disperse within a few hours so we can take Sadie on an evening walk, otherwise she’ll surely morph into the most annoying creature on the planet by 7 p.m.
It’s already happening…
