Saturdays are the best. I’ve gotten so much done today, and it’s only half over! Plus, I got in some good eats.
I intended on waking up and going straight to the gym, but the lazy side of me wanted to make oat pancakes instead. The latter won me over 😛
There’s a lot of oat pancake recipes floating around the blogosphere right now, but I got this one from Oh She Glows
They were super simple to make, and turned out wonderful. I had mine with some Mighty Maple Peanut Butter and some pure maple syrup.
Of course, I enjoyed my breakfast with a cup of joe.
MMmmm. Next time I’ll be brave enough to be a little more creative and add in some mix-ins.
After inhaling breakfast, I met up with my friend, Carmody at the Farmer’s Market. I swear it seemed even bigger this week than the last time we went. I think the cooler weather brought out double the amount of people, too.
There was TONS of cool produce that I had no clue even existed. Like Squash Blossoms?
Apparently they are edible flowers that can either make prettiful garnishes or be stuffed with cheese and fried up, as they are quite bland alone.
Another one was lilac peppers. I thought these were SO pretty in color.
In addition to food, the Farmer’s Market also has on display all kinds of art work from hand-made purses to glass blown jewelry. Today one of the vendors was actually blowing the glass here at the market.
Leaving with 3 bags full of goods, I ended up spending more than intended – as usual!
Once I got the goods home and put away, it was gym time. Today I took it pretty easy:
- 10 minute warm up walk on the treadmill at 6.5% incline
- Weights – which included the Pull Muscles: Bicep curls, modified bicep curls, lateral pull down, straight arm lateral pull down, row, and reverse crunches on a stability ball
- 10 minute cool down walk on the treadmill at 6.5% incline
I left feeling like I had a good workout, but not wore out. However, I was starving again. Lunch was BBQ! I went out to eat at my favorite BBQ place here in town, Bandana’s. As usual, I ordered the pork plate. For sides I got green beans and a baked potato. It also comes with garlic bread, of which I had a couple bites.
And had an Iced Tea to wash it all down.
Now it’s time for a little relaxing before beginning part two of Saturday. Tonight, my good friend Kim and her BF and coming over to play. I’m sure we’ll be up to no good! 😛 They’re from out of town, so they will probably end up staying over night here. If so, this will probably be my last post of the day, so I hope you have a great part two to your Saturday, too!
