Two days worth
Hey party people! I’ve got two days worth of food and drink to show ya, so let’s get to it.
Tuesday morning, I had what I thought to be my favorite oatmeal combination (but honestly the banana and almond butter is winning out this week).
When I got to work, tragedy struck and we were out of coffee! How does that even happen?
Fortunately, we have a cafe upstairs where I got to not only satisfy my coffee needs but also support local business :)
Medium coffee with a splash of 2% milk.
Mid-morning, I snacked on some mixed nuts.
Lunch was a mixed grains salad with cucumbers, grape tomatoes, a Morningstar Farms Chik’n patty and some plain hummus.
I must also declare my undying love for La Croix. It’s like soda, only water, and without sodium, artificial sweeteners or anything nasty. I am in love you guys!
After lunch, I went over to the gym and did some strength training with Farrah. I’m not too sore today so I’m wondering if it’s not time to up the weights again?
Later in the afternoon, I snacked on some Fage 2% with peanut butter.
I love the 2%! It’s not that much different than the 0% but it’s just a tad bit creamier and slightly less bitter than it’s counterpart. Don’t be afraid of a little fat.
For dinner, I whipped up a quick turkey burger with avocado and organic ketchup and corn on the cob.
This was not as good as previous times I’ve had it…the burger was a bit dry (I think I cooked it too long) and the avocado wasn’t quite ripe yet. So it could’ve been better but it got the job done.
After dinner, I took Suzie to the park and met my friend Candy for a 2 mile walk. It was so nice and breezy out, I still can’t believe it’s August. It’s like Fall came early!
Dessert was a small cup of ice cream with two mini dark chocolate PB cups. I promise this is the last time you will see ice cream on here…at least for a while ;-)
Today, I started out with the current favorite (it is constantly changing):
Luckily someone brought in their emergency stash of coffee today…tragedy avoided.
We had a party at work this morning, so I snacked on some veggies with salsa and 2 tbsp of mixed nuts.
After the party, I went on a 30 minute walk around campus. It was a bit warmer today but after tomorrow, we should be cooling off again, craziness.
Lunch was a can of vegetarian chili. I think I am going to have to lay off this for a while…ahem, too much fiber. Sorry if that is TMI ;-)
About an hour after lunch, I went to my Exercise Science class which was totally interesting but I felt weak and sleepy. Sometimes when that happens, I know I need food (as opposed to caffeine) so I dug into my snack not long after I got back.
Not the best choice but I’m trying to use them up. It was good though and made me feel better almost instantly.
I snacked on some leftover tortilla chips before leaving work and also took another 15 minute walk outside :)
At Courtney’s, we started the night off with some vino!
Red or white? I’ll have a little bit of each, please.
Dinner was tomato pizza burgers on Arnold’s sandwich thins, with grilled zucchini and summer squash (which I made) and sweet potato fries. It was glorious :)
For dessert, we had carrot cupcakes. Now I know my previous post boasted on how I don’t eat desserts like this and stay low sugar and blah blah blah. Well, I’m also human and I believe in having things like this on occasion and you will notice that I don’t tomorrow, the day after and so on.
I did have ice cream two days this week, but I’m chalking that up to temporary illness, haha ;-)
Check these babies out!
It was so good and the icing was superb! There were only three of us there tonight so I took the fourth one home to Josh since carrot cake is his favorite :)
Hope you all had a good night. See you tomorrow!
