We will see them again in 5 weeks, when we go for Christmas.. I can't wait!
Today was a 30 minute run with the group. What a gorgeous day...it was perfect! Sunny and cool, so it felt great to be outside. But, when we headed out, I felt sluggish. I realized that this was probably due to the fact that I hadn't eaten before running. A car can't go on no fuel, and neither can our bodies. So, next Saturday, I will have something small (a banana, perhaps) when I get up. Tuesday is 35 minutes. Just two more weeks until the Mock 5k.
I have had a can of pumpkin in the pantry for quite some time, and have been wanting to try a recipe that I got from one of the Paleo sites, for Pumpkin Pie Smoothies. It was a very easy recipe...just throw it all in the blender.
They tasted OK, but not great. Maybe it's just because I like pumpkin, but I'm not a huge fan of it. I'm not sure if I would make them again. So, now I have a bunch of pumpkin left, but found recipes for grain-free pumpkin bread and pancakes.
After supper, we had a bit of ice cream. It's definitely not Paleo, but I didn't consider it a "cheat". I've been eating really well lately, and it was a small amount. I even took more than half of the amount Jim had scooped out and put it back. I just wanted a small taste, so about 1/4 cup, with fresh berries on top.
It's funny, though. Just that little bit of sugar got my cravings going and now I am feeling kind of "snacky", made worse, I think, since I am the only one up. Jim went to bed about a half hour ago. I think I will put in the movie "Elf" and work on knitting William's slippers. If I get really hungry, I will have my go-to snack...carrot sticks and almond butter.
That's it for now. Goodnight!
