Hello! I’m back with the usual lineup: a run, then food! One is cold and the other is hot. And by cold I mean 22 degrees! Ack. That’s 65 degrees colder than my run three days ago…Despite the frigid temps, it was still nice to be back outside in Nashville. I headed down to the park for an easy out-and-back route. But I had to stop a couple of times to adjust my gloves to keep my fingers from turning into popsicles (even though I was wearing two layers of gloves). Finally I ended up pulling my sleeves extra long and balling up my fist inside of them like a weirdo which seemed to help.
On the plus side, only half of my left thumb was cold because I cut the other half off last night while mincing garlic…But back to the problem at hand (pun intended): Any hardcore running mitten/glove recommendations? I have these and these but neither pair is warm enough (even when paired together into two layers!). Every winter I suffer from cold hands and this year I’m ready to splurge on a nice pair of SUPER warm running mittens. Or gloves, though I’ve found that mittens are usually warmer than gloves.
Also ready to splurge on a new TV so that I can watch the new Bachelor season in super size! Good thing I found this free one on the side of the road this morning. (Did anyone watch the premier last night btw?)Solid run! Moving right along to hot food — here’s our spicy dinner from last night! After two weeks off, we’re back on the Cook Smarts bandwagon. It was so nice to come home from vacation with a healthy meal plan and grocery list ready to go. First on the menu: Cajun salmon with rice, greens, and beans!Ever since we stepped off the plane on Sunday afternoon, Anthony and I have been so thirsty! Double waters last night. Not sure if it’s the airplane air or our addiction to hot sauce. This meal was a keeper! I marked it as a favorite so I’m sure you’ll see it again soon.Off to work! Taking a hot cup of tea for the road and turning up my heated seat.
- Running glove/mitten recommendations? I need something hardcore because I am a real wimp about cold hands.
- Bachelor nation: How was the premier?! We are going to catch it on Hulu tonight!
- Favorite brand of hot sauce? Anthony is hooked on the Tabasco habanero.
