So….when I was editing pages/posts today, I somehow accidentally deleted my “How I View Food” page (and all comments that went with it), and had to re-write it all. Yippee! Nooottttt.
On Saturday I whipped up some pancakes using Hodgson Mill buckwheat pancake mix. I’ve been in love with this pancake mix for a while now – tasty! These weren’t just ordinary pancakes (oh no way jose!). These were blueberry banana peanut butter cinnamon pancakes. Holla!
Yup, carmelized banana slices. And for some I stuck a glob of PB in the middle of the batter as the pancake was cooking.
Then I went grocery shopping for our trip to the cabin. Stopped by Costco, Traders & Whole Fo0ds (I made the rounds!). Since I hadn’t had lunch, I picked up a Berry Sundae at Costco:
But I really only had a few bites (probably about 1/4 of this – but you all know how massive Costco yogurts are!). It took me forever to load up the car with our groceries, and by the time I was done, my yogurt was all melted. And I hate melted, runny yogurt. Blech. Oh well. I got my yogurt fix later that night when the fam took a trip to Yogurtland!! No pic (I forgot my camera in the rush out the door – bad blogger!), but I combined Tiramasu & Cookies n’ Cream with oreo pieces, chocolate sauce & reese’s crumbles. Yummmm 😀
Today I had some leftover Blueberry Banana Cinnamon Peanut Butter Buckwheat panckes (phew!! quite the mouthful) and then hit up the gym for a treadmill run.
Today was my “long” run. I’m taking it slow and increasing 1 run per week by a slight amount. I’m also increasing my running segments by a teeny bit each week. Last week my longest run was 4 miles total with 1.7 mile running intervals (walking segments breaking it up). Today I went for 2 mile intervals, with a 1 mile interval at the end to give me a total of 5 miles running!! Including warm-up, walking intervals & cool-down, it totaled 6.2 miles. My knee felt really stiff, and my left knee actually hurt a bit, but I’m icing it now. I finished up with about 13 minutes chest & back, and about 5 minutes ab work.
My sister came home from her gymnastics party with a couple of these frog cookies:
(Their mascot is a frog). I had a teeny piece of his leg since I’m not a fan of “fake” sugar cookies.
When my sister saw I amputated a piece of him, she comforted the frog and stroked his head, saying “You’ll get, through the surgery. Don’t worry…”
She’s funny 😀
We ended up leaving for the cabin around 6:30 tonight. Originally we were planning on leaving tomorrow morning, but last minute left tonight. Dinner stop along the way…the sisters got Panda Express:
And I picked up Chipotle! Chicken, black beans (yes there are black beans somewhere in there), pico de gallo, corn salsa & massive guac!
I fork fought with my sister over stealing a piece of her orange chicken. I succeeded, but flung my fork back a little too fast and my piece ended up on the floor. The orange chicken that never was 😦
Wow that actually looks freakin’ nasty. I swear the orange chicken was more appetizing in real life. And on the table.
I’m sure tomorrow we’ll be heading to the lake! May or may not get some hiking in (my family members who would actually hike with me stayed home this trip). I’m not sure how much blogging I’ll get done for the next couple days, as internet up here is rrrreeeaalllyyy slow. But I’ll try!
