Today marks Day #3, week #3 of my interval training plan! I am just flying right along….. Which does make me a little nervous. I keep waiting for another knee injury to surface… Hopefully with good stretching and elevation while at work I can continue to work my way back up to running the entire time.
I’m really hoping to be able to participate in the Healthy Living Summit group run in August too… We shall see 🙂
Breakfast #1: Just-sayin-no to muffin(tops)
I had a breakfast meeting at Panera this morning for the Knowledgeable Network of Women in Akron. In a previous life, I would have been PUMPED for a muffie and/or bagel from Panera… Coffee cake? Bring-it-on. Nowadays I just stare longingly at these delicious treats through the glass case and drool….
Breakfast #2: Giving low-carb waffles a second go
I made low-carb waffles for the first time last week, and I was really excited to try them again. There’s lots of things I’d like to play around with, but for the sake of determining what works and what doesn’t I only changed a few minor things this time around.
Last night I cooked up the waffle batter below for 10 minutes on the waffle iron:
- 1/4 cup Bob’s Red Mill Low-Carb baking mix
- 1/4 cup + 1 tsp Almond Breeze unsweetened almond milk
- 1 egg white
- Sprinkling of cinnamon
- 1/2 packet Truvia
- 1/8 tsp baking powder
This morning, I popped the waffles into the toaster, then topped ’em off with some fresh/frozen strawberries/bananas/blackberries that I heated up in the microwave along with some PB2 (added extra H20 fo’ the drizzle).
YUMMMMMM….. So tasty, even though the texture is not quite what I want. Guess I’ll just have to keep on experimenting. No complaints here!

Lately, I’m pretty much obsessed with hummus and spinach sandwiches of any variety. It’s not just me either. I made a wrap with hummus on it for the BF over the weekend, and he seconded my desire to rub it all over my face and marinate in its deliciousness. Hahahah… 😉
Today’s wrap consisted of:
- 1 mama lupe’s low-carb tortilla <3 <3 <3
- 2 tbsp Trader Joe’s Spicy hummus
- 3 ounces grilled chicken breast
- big ole handful of spinach
- 1/2 a roma tomato
- honkin slice of red onion
