A new beginning
I’m one of those rare people who actually welcomes Mondays because it is the start of a new week, a time to begin fresh and set the tone. Although my day wasn’t all fun and games, I certainly feel like I did some things for me today and I certainly made it a healthy day.
This morning, I had oats in a jar again! I’m starting to go through PB too quickly around here 😉
Oats with skim milk, blueberries and the rest of my PB&Co Crunch Time. It was good but I don’t know that I’d get it again for a while, I still want to try Smooth Operator.
I had some coffee when I got to work and then mid morning I enjoyed this snack.
Land O’Lakes colby jack cheese snack! I found a bag of these at Walmart over the weekend. I loved it!
For lunch, I tried another Kashi meal:
I’ve got one more coupon left so expect to see at least one more of these in the next couple of weeks, haha.
This dish was pretty good, I have to say. The last time I got one like this, I didn’t think it had enough chicken but this one was much better. I am a big fan of the southwest style (with black beans, corn, etc.) so this really hit the spot.
Mid afternoon I snacked on some mixed nuts before leaving a little early for some much needed exercise!
I met my friend Farrah outside for a run. It was the first time we’d gotten to work out together in almost two weeks. Between the flood and her vacation, I’d missed her!
It was hot as heck but for some reason it didn’t bother me much today. We ran/walked 3 miles in about 37 minutes. I felt so good afterwards and I’m still sort of carrying it right now. I must’ve really needed that…short and sweet.
For dinner, I met an old friend Kristin at Mimi’s Cafe, one of my favorite places in the city. I decided to try a salad this time, so I got Mimi’s Chopped Cobb with no bleu cheese (ick).
Unfortunately, they used mostly iceberg lettuce! But the turkey, bacon, tomatoes, egg and avocado were really good. I didn’t like the dressing they brought me either so I ended up just eating it dry which was fine actually.
I also had half of a honey oat bran muffin that came with my dinner.
It wasn’t the best meal I’ve ever had there but I was full and catching up with an old friend is always a good time 🙂
I’m back at home now, watching some bad TV waiting for Josh to get home from a concert. I had two of these for good measure.
Hope you all had a good Monday and an even better tomorrow!
