I love trick or treaters! I remember what it was like to be young and trick or treating with my mom, so I just love being able to be on the "other side" of the door. I even turned down TWO grown-up Halloween party invitations to stay home…. I’ve got my bowl of candy just waiting for eager hands:
The key with trick or treaters is that you can’t put all your candy in 1 bowl and let them have a go at it…. otherwise the kids always take 10 pieces each. So I use a tiny bowl and refill throughout the night. 🙂
So far, I’ve seen Hannah Montana, a Brat Doll, and a penguin. I need some SCURRY costumes!
I had the most glorious fun run with Meghann this afternoon. Whenever we go running together, we end up gossiping the entire time, so we run very slowly…. but that’s OK with me because she’s so great to hang with. 🙂
Before I left, I had a mini Luna bar (and my supplements).
And I had a WW pita with PB.
Meghann and I met up around 4 PM at the Cady Way Trail. It’s a pretty decent path. My only compliant about running trails in Orlando is that they are ALL concrete paths. It would be nice to see a few decomposed granite or packed dirt paths (that’s the urban planner in me coming out!).
We did 7.0 miles and walked an additional 0.25 mile as a cool down. I don’t know if it was the talking-while-running or what, but my heart rate was through the roof and I blasted WAY more calories than usual.
Here are my statistics:
- Duration: 1 hour, 16 minutes (7.0 miles)
- Average Heart Rate: 175 bpm
- Maximum Heart Rate: 192 bpm
- Calories Burned: 745
After our run, we stopped at the mall to pick up new pants for Meghann. None of her clothes really fit her anymore since she lost weight! She looks FAB and deserves to dress up in things that show off all her hard work, in my opinion! I was too sweaty to try clothes on, which was good because I am too broke to be purchasing anything!
By the time I got home, I was staaaaarving and wanted to make something quick and easy. All the way home I kept thinking, "I want something that sticks to my ribs!"
I made 1/2 a box of Annie’s Shells & Real Aged Cheddar Macaroni and Cheese (love that stuff…. and the ingredient list is SO short and natural!). Last time, I used 1/4 cup plain yogurt and 1/4 cup milk for the whole box, but this time I just used milk.
The cheese ended up being really runny and it seeped onto my broc… which worked out PERFECTLY as I suddenly had cheesy broc! 🙂
I also had about 2/3 a breast of rotisserie chicken, which was juuuust about too much meat for me. I gave a few big chunks to the puppies.
THE Beer Has ARRIVED!!!
When I was at the grocery store, I found THIS:
Yes! Sam Adam’s Winter Lager is now available. Now, I love me some pumpkin beer, but I think this may be my #1. Well, Budweiser’s micro-brew winter beer might also be one of my favorites (even though I can’t remember the name right now!).
So, my plans for this Halloween include handing out candy and drinking 1 or 2 beers. :) I will probably have to eat something else again soon…. maybe cereal…. due to the INSANE calorie deficit I create on my run!
HAVE A SAFE AND HAPPY HALLOWEEN!
