It’s OCTOBER! The best month ever. Fall is my favorite time of year. Leaves change hues, pumpkins are everywhere, and mild weather make for a beautiful month. I still need to buy a pumpkin. And make/buy fall decorations. It’s happening.
So I’m not sure where the time went yesterday but 11PM came all too soon and I didn’t get a chance to blog. It may have been due to the 4 episodes of Breaking Bad that Daniel and I watched yesterday. We’re trying to catch up to the series finale! Don’t spoil it! We have 3 episodes left and will more than likely watch them tonight.
Ok so Sunday’s meals:

|Dinner||Raspberry Chipotle Salmon and stir fry||270|

|Lunch||Pulled pork, sauce, bun, coleslaw||350|
|Left over stir fry||40|
Not bad on calories considering I ate a few Pumpkin Scones…. that’s right, I made PUMPKIN SCONES! While watching the Chiefs game on Sunday I had a burning desire to bake something. Maybe it was the sweet smell of my new butternut pumpkin candle (if it was edible, I would eat it). So I hopped on Pinterest to check out my options from sweets I had previously pinned. I must say, it was a good choice, because they turned out amazing!
They’re not super big so I didn’t feel as guilty about eating them. Here’ s the original recipe from Sweet Pea’s Kitchen.
Yeah, I took a lot of photos. They’re just so photogenic! I love scones. After eating several the past couple days, I’ve noticed that they fill me up more than other sweets. Yes, I was craving them. But they did also offset my hunger compared to empty calories like chips or a cookie.
This batch made 12 and there’s one left!!! They were popular on Sunday with our guests and of course Daniel and I have been snacking on them since. I wish there was more…
Sunday was my rest day. Ha. Aren’t most? But I did run yesterday! It was getting late so Daniel and I made a quick 3 mile trip around the park. Nothing too exciting though we did do a little speed work. For some reason it was a lot harder last night for me to sprint than before. Maybe it was all of those scones weighing me down.
I really want to try CrossFit but it’s expensive so I think we’re going to possibly do P90x if we can find a way to get the DVDs. However, K-State has a free CrossFit intro class that we plan to try out Saturday. I at least want to see what it’s like but I’m pretty much ready for anything that builds strength. I need something to hold me accountable like a class or schedule of some sort. Trying to get motivated at home is hard. If we do P90x we plan to set aside a certain time every day for it.
What do you do for strength training?
Now, go make pumpkin scones!
I’m going to attempt to motivate myself to do pushups.
