TGFH = Thank God For Humpday!
Last night in school we didn’t have time to bake off our pies so no photos 🙁 There WILL be a ton of photos from tonight, however, because not only are we baking off our pecan and apple custard pies, but we are also making a chocolate peanut butter pie as well! Last night we just parbaked and blindbaked our pie shells, made pastry creme, had lecture and made all the pie fillings. It’s amazing how fast the five hours really goes (or how slow, if you are really tired). We got out early last night, around 10:45, so I was able to get in bed at around 11:30.Not that I fell asleep at 11:30–probably more like 12:15…but still it’s better than later I guess!
Get this: I have NEVER waited for my alarm in the morning to go off. I naturally wake up about 5-10 minutes before it every single morning, every day of my life. Call me crazy. So, I woke up at approximately 7:08 this morning, had half a banana with almond butter and hit the gym for some cardio. I did 10 minutes on the elliptical (watching the today show of course!) then did 15 minutes on the treadmill (10 minutes running, 5 minutes walking on a steep incline) followed by some jumping jacks. When I got back inside I had a bowl of my new Ezekiel cereal: Cinnamon Raisin, and I have to say its the best yet! The raisins give the cereal a little sweetness and a nice chew. I liked it better than the almond kind!
Here’s what’s going in my lunchbox on this lovely humpday:
a tofurky/avocado/spinach whole wheat pita. I really really loved the avocado/tofurky combo when I made it the other day (pretty much the best tofurky sammie EVER) so I re-created it today! I used some honey mustard as well and 1/4th of an avocado.
A small container of those really addicting veggie chips that I bought at the health food store where I get my delicious kale salad wraps in Tampa. These things are dangerous…that’s why I only packed a really small amount!
A navel orange
And…for a snack, I packed 2 brown rice cakes and a container of grapes.
That should keep me going!
Ryan is traveling to Augusta today to go to the Masters! I wish I could go too 🙁
