Another packed day over here! I just got home from work and the gym and I’m feelin’ pretty pooped and ready for a glass of wine!! 🙂 It was a great day though and everyday I’m there, I really do feel like I learn more and more.
To start though—this morning I had a filling breakfast of a Thomas 100% Whole Wheat bagel with almond butter and preserves with a banana and a yogurt on the side.
Today for lunch I packed a turkey sandwich on whole wheat with pepperjack cheese and honey mustard. I also packed a bunch of snackies:
Midmorning I had half of the Balance Pure bar (plus a small roll that just came out of the oven). For lunch, I had the sammie, yogurt and apple. I didn’t end up eating the pure protein bar. Instead, I chose the larabar for my after-work/pre-gym snack.
First thing this morning I baked more pumpernickel rolls. Six full sheet trays full! I snagged one right when it came out of the oven, after I had sprinkled it with caraway seeds, salt and melted butter. Perfection. Then, I baked four more loaves of cranberry walnut orange quick bread for lunch service.
NOTHING compares to how amazing these smell while baking!!!
I also whipped up some “reverse chocolate cookies” and baked more chocolate chip and peanut butter.
Now this is some extremely chocolatey cookie dough!
I also baked a ton (the recipe yielded 775 crackers actually) cheddar crackers, which are a signature of the club. These include 5 lbs of cheddar cheese, cayenne pepper and white pepper. Very spicy, cheesy and delicious!
I also made two lemon olive oil cakes and flatbread and pumpernickel dough for tomorrow’s production! A very FULL 8 hours! I couldn’t get a picture of the cakes because I left while they were in the oven but I had to juice 20 lemons by hand to get the amount of juice I needed. They better have been worth it!
After work I had half of my larabar and went to the gym to swim laps. Okay. Ryan can attest to this: I’m a sucky swimmer. I sort of just swim a couple laps full force, do the doggy paddle for a bit and then get some sun….wearing a bikini the whole time. When I walked down to the pool today I prayed no one else would be there. But lo and behold, MY PERSONAL TRAINER FROM YESTERDAY was standing there coaching a girl. It was sort of mortifying because then I felt like I had to swim like michael phelps and he tried to coach me through some laps of freestyle, my worst stroke. After about half an hour I staggered out, called it a day and hit the locker room. It was kinda embarrassing but oh well.
After swimming, I ate the other half of my bar on my way home. I’m about to hit the shower and help Betty with dinner! I’ll be back to update before bed tonight. Yay for the debates being on!!! I’m SO excited! Hopefully I can keep myself awake for them!!!
