Ed

and I took a short walk this morning – it was chilly and I was not prepared!  I hadn’t made my lunch, or breakfast yet!

look at how cute he looks!  He hears squirrels - they drive him crazy!

The biscotti worked last night!  Baking powder is my friend!  I am happy I have redeemed myself!

Breakfast:

  • 1/3 cup oats
  • 2/3 water
  • 2.5 ounce diced apple
  • pinch salt
  • 1 tablespoon sf syrup
  • 1 tablespoon trail mix
  • pinch of cinnamon

When I put this into www.calorieking.com to see how much insulin to take, this whole bowl came in at 192 calories, 5.4 fat, 5.3 fiber, 31.6 carbs, 6.5 protein.  Does that sound right?  It seems too low in calories to me!

Hope to work out at lunch, since I missed yesterday.  See you at lunch!

Coldest yet!

By the time I got to the trail this morning with Ed, it was 28 degrees!  Winter coat? Check.  Hat? Check.  Gloves? Check!

It was beautiful though – we went on a new path and he could not have been happier.  We walked for 40 minutes!

I didn't see this at the other trail!  Free Mutt Mitts!

there was frost on the ground around this bend!

I was hungry by the time we got back.  I made my mock McDonald’s sausage McMuffin – with Tabasco!

So last night I made two batches of biscotti – both were a disaster.  They are heavy, dense and not good at all.  I kept going through my head, what did I do wrong?  Did I miss an ingredient?  I FORGOT THE BAKING POWDER!

I will try again though.  The second biscotti I made was actually a tofu trail mix that looked pretty good going in the oven:

Planning on doing the treadmill walk/run/sprint today.  See you at lunch!
