Breakfast of champions right here, folks:
I had to take Niko to the groomer’s this morning, which happens to be right by the only Dunkin Donuts in town. Obviously, I had to take advantage of an iced coffee. I also picked one up for Shane, along with some munchkins for his breakfast since he’s working from home today. There might be 3 missing from the bag, but that’s neither here nor there.
Don’t worry, I had a substantial breakfast after I got back and showered:
Protein pancake – recycled picture, but you get the gist – made this way, but with a little protein powder and a banana mixed in (so good!) Eaten while watching the Today Show.
Speaking of the Today Show – yesterday while I was listening from the kitchen, my interest was piqued when I heard Jillian Michaels on screen being interviewed.
I was pretty surprised to hear her announce that not only was she coming back to the Biggest Loser, but she’s coming back specifically to help the show take on childhood obesity. The show will feature teens between 13-17 to be included in the competition, somehow giving them a pass from the weekly weigh-in eliminations.
Never a show to shy away from controversy, this decision will undoubtedly unleash some criticism and opinions. Here’s my thoughts:
Previous Thoughts on That Thursday:
On another note, I hope I’m not getting sick. For the past few days I’ve had what I thought was a bad ear ache, but then last night I started to feel it in my neck. I haven’t been sick since November 2009 (oh dear…some rookie blogging times around that post!) – ‘freals - so I sure hope my body kicks its butt before it takes over to full blown sickness.
So, instead of going on my planned 5 miler, I’m going to be trying something in the kitchen that I’ve actually never even attempted before (don’t worry, I won’t share if I am, in fact, sick ) Should be a fun time. Wish me luck!
See you all tomorrow!
