Today started with SPIN. We had a sub today, which was a great change. More my style of music, so I got to jam out to my favourite tunes. I also got to test out my new heart monitor ,which I got for my birthday! I was a little too pumped about using this for class this morning.
I love playing around with new toys like this, and getting everything set up. I’m like a 6 year old. It kind of reminded me of playing with those tamagotchi things. Did anyone else love those? I had about 6 of them.
Just a random tangent for you all…
(I blurred out the calories, because I don’t want any comparisons or anything happening.)
Last week I also had my heart rate zone tested last week, to make sure I know when I’m in my strength or endurance zone. Which I highly recommend doing by the way.
I came home and all of a sudden felt the urge to clean out my closet. Does that ever happen to anyone else? I ended up spending about 30 minutes cleaning out some things before I thought I should probably get some breakfast in.
Breakfast – 8:
I made a batch of granola pancakes for breakfast, that I topped with sun butter. Winner, even though they were slightly burnt.
I probably should have made 2 smaller ones, instead of a giant one.
Later, I got ready and got my coffee on. Awesome, as always.
I had a serious hankering for some socca when I returned home. I decided to roll with it and made a simple socca for lunch.
Lunch – 12:
Socca cooked in coconut oil with a side of kale chips and cauliflower that was roasted in coconut oil, nutritional yeast and a little almond flour. Side of mashed avocado.
One of my favourite simple lunches to have.
Today was the first real day that its felt like Fall with the cooler weather and a slight breeze in the air, so my sister and I decided to go on a little Halloween spree.
We went to Michael’s and picked out a few fun things to decorate the house with.
Including some scented candles. I had a hard time choosing which ones I wanted, but decided with “pumpkin pie” and “fall foliage”.
Snack – 3:
Once home, I snacked on an apple with a few cookie dough balls.
To be honest, these past few days have been really hard for me emotionally, and I really didn’t feel like eating at this time. However, I sucked it up and prepared something anyways. I didn’t picture Dinner, since I wasn’t really in the photographing mood.
Right now I just want to curl up with a good book and a cup of tea, and of course will have a little something more substantial before bed tonight.
What’s the best thing you ate today?
Do you prefer savoury or sweet style snacks?
