Hello, weekend! =)
I swapped and got Monday off this week instead of Wednesday so I actually HAVE a weekend! From now on, my days off should always be Sunday and Monday. I’m very happy about that!
The bubbles certainly worked last night—-I fell asleep at 7:15 and slept very soundly through the night. When I woke up at 3:15, I felt great and incredibly energized! I snacked on this bar in the early hours—
I LOVE the lemon bar flavor! I got the double whammy this morning because I was sipping on hot water with lemon at the same time!
As I was driving to work it was crazy to see people just leaving the bars….what a complete different life I live. Pita Pit was still open and Starbucks was jamming. I had a great morning at work though mainly because of a surprise visit from my daddy! He got to see me in action, pulling just baked bread out of the 450 degree oven. He bought an all natural carrot muffin top that I had baked this morning, got a cup of coffee, and sat down for awhile in the store.
It was cool showing an “outsider” what I do every day. I call the little metal table next to the oven my “office” because that’s where I stand all day. Pulling bread out of the proof box, slashing them and throwing them in the oven. Today was neat because I got to deal with customers a little bit—explaining some of the different breads and what’s best served with them. Have I mentioned that I love my job?!! 😉
I broke for breakfast around 7:45 and because its Saturday, I got a grande decaf nonfat vanilla latte before going upstairs and having breakfast. However, the drink was incredibly sweet (I just don’t think I’m used to drinking flavored drinks anymore!) and I didn’t drink most of it. Next time I’ll know! For breakfast I packed 3/4 cup oats, pumpkin seed butter and cinnamon/brown sugar. This morning I made my oats with water instead of milk:
Thank you all SO much for all your great breakfast ideas! I’m going to try to make my oats the night before next time. I had another mini explosion in the microwave today and said that’s it. No more!
And then I had ANOTHER visitor at work today! Ryan came and we had lunch together after my shift. I had been tasting bread all day and wasn’t starving so I just had a bowl of homemade lobster bisque and a whole wheat sunflower flax roll that I had pulled out of the oven only a few hours before (haha more bread).
I polished off the soup but only ate half the roll since they are huge! We scale them out raw dough weight at 4 oz, which makes for quite a hefty roll. I also had another Komucha Synergy drink. Uh oh….I think I’m addicted! This is even worse than coffee because they are sooo expensive!
This afternoon I’m going to try to take a nap so I won’t fall asleep at 7 tonight. Ryan and I are going out to dinner and to see Gran Torino later!
I hope everyone is enjoying their Saturday!
