Happy Valentine’s Day! I hope that your day is filled with all kinds of lovey doviness. There seems to be some love missing here at my homestead – I haven’t even gotten a card yet. The gift I bought my hubs was a pair of Ugg boots. I thought that they would be good for his chilblains. He hasn’t tried them on yet but he did say that he likes them. I have gotten a little love from D – he said that he would be my Valentine and apologized for not having a card to give me – he is soooo sweet.
I woke up before my guys and headed out for a nice 8 mile run. It took me a little over an hour – not bad considering I haven’t run outside that much the last few months. I toasted a Kashi waffle and topped it with a tbsp of strawberry preserves for a pre-run snack.
I threw together a super fast bowl of Whole Grain Cream of Wheat for breakfast – I had like 15 minutes to shove this in my mouth before leaving to take D to karate. I topped it with a banana, pumpkin and a Nature’s Promise granola bar.
I was on my own at karate today. Charlie had to take his car in for some service and my sissy is on her way to Maine. D did a good job today – he tends to be a bit of a goof off. On the way home I stopped at Honey Dew and let my Valentine have a special treat – a donut covered in chocolate icing and V-Day jimmies. I had a decaf black coffee and a Luna bar. I brought this from home – they do not sell these at the donut shop.
When we got home I did a bunch of things around the house – laundry & tidying up. My hubs is still not back from the dealer. I really was trying to wait to have lunch but my tummy was talking.
I made a turkey, swiss cheese and lettuce wrap. On the side I had some of my red pepper spread, zucchini and red pepper sticks.
As I am typing away I am snacking on a Z Bar with a 1/2 tbsp smear of almond butter and a cup of decaf Chocolate Hazelnut tea (STASH brand – it is the best).
I have no idea what the plan is for the rest of the day. We talked about going out but my mother-in-law called and said she was not feeling well so there goes the babysitter. It will just have to be a family Valentine date if we do end up going out.
Enjoy your afternoon.
