It hasn't been too cold running outside lately. I feel prepared for the race and am not expecting a PR, but am aiming for a 9 min mile pace. The race day is supposed to be 5 degrees Fahrenheit, so I may break out the face mask.
I wear lipstick when I go running because it makes me feel a little more sane and of course, faster.
I love earmuffs!!
Whole wheat english muffin with a slice of cheese, topped with mushrooms and tomatoes with a sprinkling of Dill! I had a hard boiled egg on the side.

Takes up little counter space!
They ALSO have an opening at the bottom that will automatically measure out 1/4 Teaspoon for you with just one turn of the base. I LOVE this feature!!
I had a bit of a late start this morning so lunch is easy, I threw together mini pizza's on whole wheat english muffins-I thought I had pitas-Doh! I sprayed the muffin with olive oil and topped it with yellow squash and green peppers, with a dash of cardamom-ZING! They were almost over done! I had a half grape fruit on the side.
And a bunch of Hershey kisses wrappers appeared on the kitchen counter, was it the cats? Hmm...doubt it, I munched on them a bit too mindlessly while working this afternoon.
At least they are small and will ALL go with me to the NYE party tomorrow. I swear, if it's a sweet and it's in my house, I have little control!
I treated myself to a Starbucks coffee and Kind bar, the Cranberry & Almond--SO good.
Dinner tonight will be a roasted chicken with mushrooms and sweet potatoes! I like to make big meals sometimes so I can have left overs and eat it through the week. I have some grand plans for my left over chick! My day has been a bit off schedule so it will be a late dinner. I will post juicy pics late tonight! Yay for Day 3 of food blogging! I am learning a lot about how I eat!
What is YOUR fave spice to use??
