I made a quick dinner because I have to get to work. Nothing fancy—just some jazzed up Annie’s mac & cheese. I had some roasted butternut squash left over from the other night so I used that, along with about a cup of broccoli/cauliflower mix to go into my pasta. I’ve actually made this recipe before and put it up in the recipes section a while back, so find it there! Tonight I used 1.5 cups mac & cheese as to fill myself up before work, but found myself not being able to finish my entire dinner(probably left about 10% of it on my plate). I just haven’t been very hungry today…I’m sure it is partly because I stuffed myself like a chicken last night at dinner but today has also been incredibly stressful for matters of it’s own. Hopefully tomorrow will be better.
I did go to the gym, which helped, this afternoon. I did the elliptical machine for 25 minutes then stretched for awhile. I don’t see the need to kill myself doing cardio–especially on days when I know I have to be running on my feet for five hours at night at work! ugh! After I worked out I had a carnation instant breakfast packet (vanilla, no sugar added) with a glass of milk. Usually I wouldn’t drink these because they do have some artificial ingredients in it but I have a few in my pantry that I bought months ago and I’m trying to eat everything before I spend MORE money on groceries! Plus, I was just craving it for some odd reason. I wanted something creamy and cold. It was good.
I’m going to take some graham crackers to work with me tonight. I wish I had my chocolate trail mix but I’m all out!
Sorry if I’m not my “bubbly” self right now! It’s been sort of a rough afternoon and I’m ready for a vacation! haha! Aren’t we all?!
This was about 509 calories but I didn’t finish it all…(left some broccoli!)
about 150 calories. This glass is from anthroplogie! ( i knew the question was coming!) I have an entire set of them—they come in a range of desserts with recipes on the back. They make me happy 🙂
