Take What The Defense Gives You, Continued

Hi, everyone!  How’s your Monday going so far?  Remember last week when I took what the defense gave me, which resulted in some delicious Wegmans sushi?  Well, I did it again this afternoon.

My mom had this coupon for Lord & Taylor, and I couldn’t stand by and watch it expire.  And since I’ve been in the market for a new iPhone case, and I figured this discount could be put to good use; sure enough, I found a winner.

As soon as I spotted this Michael Kors case, it was a done deal.  And speaking of deals, this was a total steal. (Wow, I need to stop rhyming.) With the $30 coupon plus an additional discount from using an L&T credit card, the case cost only four bucks.  Nice!  To celebrate, I wandered over to Starbucks and ordered a tall iced coffee with soy milk.

(The barista was also wicked cute.  He said he liked my Starbucks card!)

Time to rewind to this morning.

Workouts – Swimming and Biking

Unlike last week, I followed today’s WIDDIU workout plan.  First up was a 35-minute open-water swim. (Thanks for spotting me, Mom!) After a quick break to dry off, I hopped on my bike and rode the Cazenovia Triathlon sprint course.  I’m not sure if it’s in my head, but the climb up Hoffman Road—the incline that contained a time trial during the actual triathlon—seemed easier today, and so did the ride overall; maybe it’s because I’ve ridden the route more as of recently.  Either way, today’s swim-bike semi-brick was pretty efficient.


I couldn’t decide what I wanted for my morning meal, so I made a mill pack.

Two scrambled eggs with Tabasco and S&P, some cantaloupe with plain Greek yogurt (don’t worry, Katie—it’s local, not from Indiana!), and a slice of whole-wheat toast with PB.


After getting home from the mall, I threw together a salad that included greens, carrots, celery, strawberries, turkey, and red peppers.

I also ate an unpictured peach for dessert.

PS – Check out this article about the Cazenovia Triathlon—a certain someone was interviewed!

  1. Hahaha! Glad you let me know, or else I’d have to be the cantaloupe police again! Love the iPhone case– such a steal!!

  2. You worked hard enough…good job getting your interview comments published! That breakfast looks much better than mine! I had planned on having 1 whole egg and 2 egg whites, scrambled….and 1 cup of grapes…prior to my workout. I cooked the eggs, then forgot them on the counter. DOH ! So I slugged a protein shake and ate the grapes. Then after my strength training I had another protein shake and ate a banana. Too close together though! Must do better tomorrow. Planning on cooking up some slow cook oats tonight and pre-storing. I should make some eggs too. 😉

  3. Just stumbled on your blog and I’m already hooked 🙂 I LOVE that iPhone case!!
