- Protein eggnog: Just 1/2 vanilla creme Oh Yeah! protein drink and a healthy glug of DaVinci sugar-free Eggnog syrup over ice. Deeeelicious! Would have been even better with some Free Cool Whip and a sprinkle of cinnamon and nutmeg over the top, but it was delicious this way too. Maybe I'll have something eggnog-flavored every day until the new year! That's the only way I'm gonna get through this syrup while the flavor's still in season.

- 1/2 of a triple chocolate Powercrunch bar - free sample from Bariatric Eating. I don't get into the protein bar thing too much, at least not yet, because they tend to have so many calories and fat/carbs. This was quite tasty, but with that fat content I consider this a "fat bar," not a "protein bar"! (105 kcals, 6.5g protein, 4.5g net carbs, 6.5g fat).

Total:I dragged myself out of bed this morning - an hour later than intended - but still with enough time to exercise. I went an hour on the elliptical for an alleged distance of 4.4 miles and an alleged calorie-burn of a little over 600 calories. It was a tough workout for me; my body had a hard time waking up. But I'm glad I did it. :-)
