Knock Wood

We seem to have kicked the insomnia around here!! Both FH and I had decent, solid sleeps last night.  Yay!  You have no idea how exciting this is.

Last night I put together a second variation of a breakfast cookie.  This one was a little drier and not very sticky so I was worried it wouldn’t hold together, but it totally did!



This morning I topped it with some nice, thick, tangy plain yogurt mixed with a drizzle of local honey and 1/2 of a banana…

Hit.the.spot.  2 for 2 on the breakfast cookie adventure!

With coffee…

This mug is fun to photograph because I can adjust which bean the focus is on!


Another successful gym trip early this morning.  As much as I hate getting out of our warm, cozy bed to drive FH to work…I LOVE the routine it creates for my workouts.

  • 20 minute treadmill run, 2.5 km
  • Lower body strength training:  2 x 15:  squats and plie squats with 5lb ball, single leg squats (each side), single leg reach (each side), lunges with 10 lb bar (each leg)
  • PLUS: 2 x 30 sec wall sit and, 1 full set of Eurydice’s bum exercises.

On the way to the gym I snacked on half of this Clif bar.  New flavor to me!  Peanut Toffee Buzzzzzz.  nom nom.


After much tweeting about #waterlogged and sipping back about a litre or so myself, it was time for lunch!  Remember the Apple, Walnut, Brie Quesadilla?  Well, I did and couldn’t wait to make it again!!

Now I must get back to work so I can head off to The Running Room soon and pick up my new running shoes!  Oh please fit.  My knees will thank you!

Hope your sneakers arrived.

The new camera seems to be a fitting Boxing Day gift to yourself...maybe you can write a post or two about photography... you seem to be a natural at it.

Seriously drooling over that quesadilla - genius, I tell you. Genius. ;)

Jen said...

I agree, you and your camera go well together!!!

Holy yum! How in the world did I miss the apple, walnut and brie post?

Must. Have. Now.

Keep up the good work! =)

I heart your new camera! Part of the reason I tend not to photoblog is b/c of my crappy 6 yr old camera.

And I agree the Quesadilla is genius! lol

That peanut butter bar looks divine! I love your photos :-)

I tried my first cliff bar a week ago, and really liked it. Not as good as a glo-bar, but a close second!
