They all look so good!!! How will I ever choose? I’ll be back late tonight (prob won’t get home from work and class until about 9) to announce the winner.
I bundled up like crazy this morning for the gym as usual, only to run outside and smack into a wall of temperate climate. Weather.com says it was 30 degrees, but it felt more like 40 to me! As I jogged to the gym, I had to take off my scarf, my ear flap hat, and my gloves — and I wished I could take off my fleece pants and two long-sleeved shirts, too! I only did 30 minutes StairMaster this morning because I was running late. Stats: 53 minutes, 391 calories, average heart rate 142, max heart rate 166.
Breakfast was, of course, my crockpot gingerbread spice oats that spent yesterday slow-cooking. I’d been looking forward to these all night, and they did not let me down! Along with one cup of the oats, I had 1/3 cup healthy cream cheese icing, 1/4 Greek yogurt, two crumbled graham sticks, and a sprinkling of powdered ginger:
And a chocolate caramel enchantment chai tea with Silk on the side.
See you at lunch!
