Please forgive me for again combining my posts today. I really do love my job but sometimes I just feel like I have to cram so much into the remainder of the day (which really feels like it should be my night!) and more times than not, I find that I just cannot do everything I set my mind to! I had a good day at work today…we stayed quite busy and I was rolling pitas, flatbreads and shicaccias til’ the last second.
Before I left this morning I decided to snack on something a little different because lately I’ve been SO hungry ALL morning long…even after eating a larabar! Seriously…like aching hunger which doesn’t lead to good things (I might have been resorting to picking extra candied pecans off of sticky buns and chocolate chips off of cookies….maybe….shhhh). So, this morning I had a banana and chocolate peanut butter instead!
It was a fabulous decision because it kept me satisfied ALL morning until I took a break at 7:45. I could have even gone longer but wanted to call Ryan before his 8:30 meeting. 🙂 I am proud to say I didn’t eat ONE candied pecan or piece of baked streusel! Score! I had my usual oats this morning made with half 2% milk (the kind my mommy buys) and half water and a scoop of chocolate almond butter. I didn’t cook it long enough though and it was a little on the soupy side—still good though!
I also had an orange:
After work I raced home because I had an appointment at 1:30 and at 2:00 I had to get to. For lunch, I had exactly what I was craving—-a 2% Fage with 1/2 cup kashi “thumpers”, a sprinkle of oatmeal raisin crisp and a sliced banana:
After I got home I decided to take my daily exercise outside for a change since it is GORGEOUS today! I took Mikan for a nice 45 minute walk and did three sets of lunges down the street to work my legs a little bit. It was fabulous and Mikan liked it, too. 😉
And then for dinner, I kept it simple ’cause tomorrow I’m goin all out (you’ll have to wait to see!). Annie’s mac & cheese with a pouch of chunk light tuna and broccoli. This hits the spot every time.
Dessert was two belgium chocolate covered cinnamon biscuits and a cup of night-night tea =)
I have a very weird week this week. Tomorrow I work and then I don’t actually work again until Saturday. I have to go to a training class (the title of the class is wellness through natural foods!) on Thursday night and then I got Friday off because Thursday will be a late night and not really conducive to waking up at 3 and going to work. Thank God my boss is so understanding! I’m cooking for my family and for Ryan tomorrow night and grocery shopping after work. I am making one of our favorite meals….you will have to be patient and I will post it tomorrow. With the recipe, of course!
I’m off to take a bubble bath! See you tomorrow =)
