This morning I did something that I NEVER do… I got up to exercise!!!  😀  I met my friend jFo from work at 6 a.m. for a hilly 3 mile run, and we rocked it.  It was so nice to be out in the morning air knowing that the weekend is only hours away.  We decided to start meeting Monday, Wednesday & Fridays at 6 to do the same course for a while.  We will see if I can keep it up.  🙂   I do enjoy being up early, it is just the “getting up” that’s the hard part.  That’s why I usually exercise in the evenings.

Since I got up so early I actually had time to cook something for breakfast (plus I was out of milk).  So I decided to whip up some polenta w/ goat cheese & a sprinkle of Bacos.  OhhhhEmmmmmGeeeee… FABULOUS!!!  So rich, creamy & filling while only costing me about 300 calories.  I sliced four pieces of organic (tube) polenta & cooked it up on a stove top for about 7 minutes with some non-fat cooking spray. The only thing I regret doing was adding salt, it really didn’t need it with the goat cheese & Bacos.  Polenta is an ingredient found in several of The Carb Lovers Diet recipes, but I just haven’t gotten around to trying it out yet.  If people who read my blog decide to buy the book when in comes out in August, you will wonder why I didn’t try a lot of things!!  I guess I just like to stick with a few tried & true items b/c it makes my life less complicated. 

Cheers to polenta!!!!  😀  A new staple in my diet.

Polenta! Mmmmmm
