Taught a spin class midday
Taught a HIIT and step class at the Y (yeah, we still do step aerobics and we love it)
Ran 4 slow miles on the treadmill
Ran through Costco pushing a heavy cart at closing time.
So…. yeah, I had the chance to go to Costco by myself last night so I took it. A little too close to closing time though. I thought I could do it quickly. I couldn’t. If anyone can do a Costco trip quickly (and for less than $150) I really want to know the secret.
After what felt like just a few minutes a nice lady hunted me down while I was in the refrigerated section and said, “Excuse me, you know we’re closed, right?”
My reply, “You are?”
They escorted me to the front while talking to each other on the walkie talkies. “We’ve got one more customer back here.”
Even while being shooed to the front I tried to grab some Fuji apples, only to have to make then reimburse me at the door because they were moldy. I’m sure they love me there.
And Beavis, I forgot STUFT Daddy’s beer.
At least I got the things we really needed.
Last night, as a result of my friend Carlyn’s twitter question, I made the grain free microwave pizza crust without the almond flour and subbed in extra coconut flour instead. I went back and added the edit to the recipe. It still came out marvelously.
It didn’t even fall apart this time when transferring it to the cookie sheet.
I ate it with loads of roasted kale salad since we have just a few bags of that in the house now.
I didn’t get to watch the whole episode of The Biggest Loser. I watched about the first 15 minutes or so. My boyfriend Bob hasn’t sported the Pro Compression socks I gave him during this visit yet. He must be saving them for a special occasion or something. Understandable, they’re pretty darn amazing.
And….. there’s a special deal right now on all black socks and sleeves.
I just happen to wear my black compression socks for over 24 hours over the weekend. See them peaking out behind my huge bowl of creamy dreamy ice cream? Ha ha.
Here’s the special.

Now, I have a little something else for you today.
I was so excited yesterday because we had some Hot Oats in the house.
Unfortunately, my first experience looked a little like this.
Hot messes in the microwave happen a lot around here.
I was not going to let a little spill get in the way of enjoying these amazing oats though. I salvaged what I could.
Um, yeah. These were awesome.
This morning I’m going for the Blueberry Banana Walnut.
I’m heating the water first though just to be safe.
I really think you need to get your hands on these new Hot Oats from the fabulous Love Grown Foods. There are many reasons why you need these, but here’s just a few reasons to love oatmeal.
1. Provides high levels of fiber, low levels of fat, and high levels of protein.*
2. Stabilizes blood sugar and reduces risk of Type 2 diabetes*
3. Removes your bad cholesterol (without affecting your good cholesterol).*
4. Contains lignans which protect against heart disease and cancer.*
5. It’s Certified Gluten Free

Oh look, while I was writing this I was multitasking. I did much better this time by adding the hot water and letting it sit.
And, well, just because I’m feeling really nice today, here’s a special good morning picture from Kitty.
Have a great day!
