Hey guys, how is your weekend going? Well sadly my mom was unable to make it to MA this weekend. They were 2 hours into the drive when their car started making some noise near the wheel. They turned around and were about 30 minutes from home when the wheel actually fell of the car. Thankfully they did not get hurt and were able to get transportation back to their house. So I will not be spending time with my mom this weekend – BOO!!! On a happier note, I had a fabulous time catching up on the last 12 years with my friend last night. We hung out at the tattoo studio until closing and then just headed to her house to chat for another 3 1/2 hours. I got home VERY late but was still wide awake at my usual time – I seriously have sleeping issues. I strapped on the running sneaks and hit the pavement. I did a nice long run today – 8 miles – it felt great.
Once I cleaned off the sweat and grime I made a bowl of pumpkin protein oats fast & furious so that we could get out the door in time for D’s karate class.
After Karate we stopped to see my Nana. I had a birthday card for her – she just turned 70. When we got home I made lunch. I had a gluten free bun with Swiss cheese and a bowl of veggies (zucchini & orange pepper), which I seasoned with curry powder and chili powder. I also included a small scoop of cottage cheese for extra protein.
There was also an apple and an Enjoy Life bar consumed.
After lunch me and my guys (Otto included) headed to Noanet Woodlands in Dover for a hike. I found out about this place in a magazine that my gym offers to it’s members – Competitor. There was an article on hiking places for you and your dog.
D chucked rocks into the big puddles in the parking lot – the highlight of his afternoon.
Into the woods we go.
The hike took a turn for the worst. He tends to be a crankster when we drag him for a trek in the great outdoors. I have no idea why – we used to take him when he was a baby and he loved it. Now that we expect him to walk on his own 2 feet he throws a fit when his legs get tired – which always seems to happen much quicker than normal. He seriously started this not even 15 minutes into the hike. He then took a digger and cut his finger. It is a teeny scrape but of course he made a huge deal out of it.
We finally made it to our destination and the view was amazing. That is the Boston skyline.
The summit was all rocks and trees. It was beautiful.
We headed back down the hill which thankfully remained complaint free until the very end.
When we got home the house smelled amazing. I made a loaf of bread in the bread machine for Charlie today and it was ready and waiting to be sampled when we got home.
I made him an omelet and toast for dinner so he could indeed enjoy his fresh loaf.
The assembly line.
He quite enjoyed his bread. He now has a homemade loaf of bread to make his sandwiches on for the week.
I also had breakfast for dinner. I topped 2 gluten free waffles with PB2, jelly (I heated it in the micro for a few seconds so that it would pour) and a few peanuts for crunch. I also had a scoop of cottage cheese – for protein again.
So that is how my day has gone down so far. I am not sure what we are doing this evening. At the moment my 2 favorite guys are watching SpongeBob.
I hope you are having a great weekend.
