I felt like Meghann today with my breakfast! Not your typical Biz breakfast at all – still haven’t gone to the grocery store yet, but I love how I have to think outside the box 😀
I made oatmeal! With fresh strawberries and a tablespoon of no sugar added peanut butter. This actually kept me full for a long time – the only thing is that right before I went to work out, my blood sugar was 235 – I must not have taken enough insulin 🙁
Errign is going to laugh at this. I’ve been doing the high tech exercise bike at the gym. I love doing this bike because its challenging – but I was getting a bit bored because the longest ride was 4.4 miles and there were only 5 or 6 trails to chose from. Um, turns out you have to scroll to the right to get to the more challenging rides! There are 30+ trails!
In order to kick myself into gear, I chose a ride called “Oh Mama” but I might have just called it “Oh Shit!” I didn’t realize the hill climb on this ride – 2 giant ones over the course of an 8 mile ride – both of them with an incline of 37%! It took me 46:00 minutes and I was a sweaty mess after that ride! It felt good 😀
Lunch was another “what is in the fridge?” Tony made cheese tortellini while I was gone, so 1 cup of that became the base. Then I diced up 2 ounces of leftover chicken, 1/4 of a red pepper, 2 cups of baby spinach and 1/2 cup of our homemade marinara. It turned out delicious!
One of my co-workers was having a smoked meat party for his wife’s birthday. I gave him my North Carolina BBQ sauce – the only thing he did was add mustard powder and a touch of cayenne pepper to kick up the heat – but it got rave reviews! 😀
He brought me some to taste – loves me some pulled pork!
We needed a few things from Sam’s Club and Tony picked up this for dinner. We’ve never been disappointed in their marinated pork loins! My favorite though is an Asiago cheese/pear marinate – we don’t see it too often though!

I had a great day yesterday – drank all my water which helped a lot – I still need to remind myself to drink water!
Tony and I are having a weeknight date night! We are going to see Toy Story 3 at Joe’s high end movie theater. Is it sad that we want to see a kids movie and hope there aren’t any kids at this theater?! 😀
Off to do 30-day shred – I am liking this getting up early stuff!
