It was a very busy week! All last weekend and the first part were all about wheeling and dealing for a new car (well, used but new to us). We finally found one in our price range in Camden, NJ. We also sold our Saab to a young couple.

Somewhere in there I decided I needed a schedule for my treadmill training. I have been doing a great job staying in my calorie range but needed to get my butt in gear for my upcoming HM in May. I put my name in the lottery for the Philadelphia Broad Street 10 miler and got in! It is one week before the HM. It is supposed to be a real flat race and a lot of fun and fit in nicely before the Delaware HM. So, I changed my work schedule. I now run while I watch Kelly and Michael at 9 and get in to work around 10:30. It is nice outside, so I am enjoying walks this weekend with Roxy and my husband, but I am staying on the treadmill with my trainings. Last time I ran outside I had a hard time mentally heading back in when the weather got bad, so I will keep my habit of running inside going. This is Roxy after her walks yesterday - we wore her out!

I perfected my Pumpkin Oatmeal this week. For those of you who are interested, here it is...

Pumpkin Oatmeal

1/3 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup skim milk
1 1/2 tablespoon Pumpkin Puree
2 sprinkles Pumpkin Pie Spice
2 sprinkles cinnamon
Brown Sugar (optional) - I use 1/4 teaspoon

Stir all ingredient in microwave-safe bowl
Cover and cook in microwave at 50% for 3 minutes

Let sit for one minute then stir and enjoy!

One more thing! Last night I had the best dinner ever at a restaurant on the canal...

Portobello melt
large portobello mushroom, marinated and baked with spinach, red peppers and jumbo lump crabmeat ... topped with melted mozzarella cheese and a balsamic drizzle garnish

It was delicious!!

Have a great day!
