New focus

Good morning!

I woke up with an amazing sense of pride today…our hometown girls, the University of Louisville Lady Cards are going to the National Championship game! I will be sure to tune in tomorrow night. I love living in Kentucky sometimes, but only for stuff like that. There’s plenty that I dislike. Such as when I was out walking the dog at 6 a.m., I was in awe of the weather here in Kentucky. Yesterday it was 75, today it’s going to be 40 and drop to the 30’s before 5 p.m. We might even get snow! Ugh.

Breakfast this morning was an old standby, pumpkin-raisin+pb oats, only this time I used almonds instead of walnuts and it was White Chocolate PB. I have to say, this bowl didn’t do it for me. I’m full and definitely got some nutrients (this bowl also contained flax) but I’m usually more impressed with this. I think it might’ve been the skim milk, when I’ve made this with 1%, it’s been unbelieveable. I also think it’s time to try some new recipes! I will be checking blogs today to get some ideas, especially from Kath the oatmeal queen haha 😉


For lunch today, I packed a Boca veggie burger with 2% cheddar cheese and two pita pocket halves with some sprouts and habanero ketchup. On the side, I have a nice apple and some carrots and hummus!


Speaking of hummus, Diane from Sabra Dipping Company, sent me a coupon to try one of their containers of hummus for free! I chose the Greek olive hummus because it was a flavor I’d never had and I love me some Greek food. I’ll let you know how it is after lunch today, for those of you who haven’t tried it. I think I’ve seen this one on Jenna‘s blog before.


I’m planning an after lunch workout that will probably be a quick run and some weights + ab work. I will update on that later.

Afternoon snacks are Oikos plain (with oatmeal squares-in the yellow container) and a mini Larabar for during class tonight. I may or may not need the Larabar since I’ve got some high protein yogurt and I’m bulking it up with some fibrous cereal. We shall see!


Happy Monday!

  1. Your weather sounds like Michigan’s weather!! Hope you like the Sabra! Have a great Monday!

  2. I can’t seem to find Sabra anymore!! 😦
