I don’t hate Monday…

…this week! haha.

Today has not been bad, I haven’t been as tired as I usually am and I’ve eaten really well today. I’m also hoping to go to the gym after work here soon. The weather is cold, but sunny. The rest of the week ain’t lookin’ too good though 😦

Ah well, here’s to food! πŸ™‚

This morning, I started things off with some steel cut oats (made with water in the crockpot overnight!) topped with a medium banana sliced and a tbsp of peanut butter. That’s my multivitamin to the left side πŸ˜‰ I made a big batch of oatmeal to last me a few days this week!

I was very interested to learn, thanks to Kath and Jenna, that steel cut oats and regular (old fashioned) oats are pretty much the same, nutritionally. I was under the assumption that steel cut were better, so I bought them a long time ago (and have yet to use them all up) but now that I know the deal, I can go back to eating my regular oats in peace πŸ™‚ That is, after I finish up these steel cut bad boys!

When I got to work, I had my usual…2 cups of coffee with Equal and 1% milk (1/4 cup in total today)…

And now for the big REVEAL! I finally found something I have wanted for a while. I only got one, thinking if it was good, I would go back to this EXACT spot and grab a few more before they were gone. Drumroll please…

Here it is…my very own….SPOOKY S’MORES Z-BAR!

I found it at a different Kroger than I usually shop at, I wasn’t even looking for it as I had given up on finding it weeks ago. I got so excited in the grocery store, I took a pic right then and there, I didn’t care how crazy I looked!

I ate it today for my mid-morning snack. It did not disappoint. I am in love

After being in Spooky S’mores Z-bar bliss for a couple hours, I met a friend at McDonald’s for lunch. I ordered the Bacon Ranch salad with grilled chicken and only used about half the packet of dressing. I love McDonald’s salads because they contain a lot of protein and fill me up really well (mucho satisfaction). The only downside is the sodium, so it’s important not to eat this every day.

Hope everyone is having a great Monday! Be back later with the rest…
