Carb-o-rama!

Today has been so weird…not necessarily in a bad way, just not like my normal schedule. I think I’m preparing for and adjusting to being off for two weeks, slowly but surely.

For breakfast this morning, I had an English muffin (whole wheat) with peanut butter, 1/2 regular and 1/2 dark chocolate. This wasn’t much but it held me forever! I couldn’t believe it. 🙂

Lunch was a veggie burger with Laughing Cow cheese on some Arnold’s Double Fiber wheat bread and a side of veggies.


After lunch, I tried a small piece (put my hand next to it to prove it!) of pumpkin bread that we received from someone at church. It was amazing!

Then I proceeded to take a 3 hour nap, holy cow! I think the only thing that woke me up was my hunger, so I took the dog out for a walk and then came back to make dinner only it ended up looking more like breakfast. I just knew that no matter what I tried to make, it wouldn’t satisfy me unless I went with what I really wanted which was oatmeal & coffee!

This bowl contains 1/2 cup oats (made with 3/4 cup vanilla soymilk), 1/2 chocolate brownie Z bar, 1/2 medium banana, 1 tbsp chopped pecans and 1 tbsp peanut butter. It was good, but the Z bar clashed with the peanut butter and banana flavors. I’m not sure why, but I know not to combine these again.

I just ate a snack of mixed nuts…after all the carbs I’ve had today, I couldn’t stand the thought of eating anything carb-like, so I went with protein & good fat!

Hopefully tomorrow will not be quite as strange and even though the “high” tomorrow is only 26, I hope to get some sort of exercise! Definitely some strength training and ab work if nothing else 😉

Today I took the dog for 4 walks, each 15 minutes. And I did some light housework, nothing too intensive though. So today was more like a rest day. Tomorrow I hope to break a sweat one way or another!

Good night, see you all tomorrow!
