Hey guys, sorry I went MIA! I haven’t felt like blogging until now because I have had a toothache since yesterday afternoon 😦
It’s been off and on so I can’t really figure out what’s caused it but pain killers and orajel are working for now so I’m going to monitor it and see if I need to go to the dentist. This particular tooth has a long history so I’m sure I will.
Breakfast the last two days has been pretty similar. More Whole Foods bagels!
This one from Sunday was an “Everything” bagel, which I think was my favorite of the group. I spread one side with peanut butter and the other with this locally made apple butter.
Sadly, I am not enjoying this nearly as much as the pumpkin butter by the same brand. But it’s still decent and I will use it up.
The rest of the day is kind of a blur, especially from this 2 hour nap I took! But I had a good lunch (you’ll see leftovers later) and dinner at my in-laws who made me some delicious veggie soup 🙂
Today, I had a cinnamon raisin bagel (and more clementines, which are so awesome right now):
I liked this bagel but after three days it had started to get a little hard (that’s what she said?) so I think next time I will just buy one at a time and eat it ASAP!
Mid morning, I used my intuition as I navigated two retirement celebrations. At the first one, I just had coffee because I wasn’t hungry yet. Then an hour later, I had some hummus, veggies and pita chips (no pics).
I ate lunch a lot later since I snacked, which was a black bean burger in a pita pocket with mixed veggies (and more un-pictured pita chips, oops).
With organic ketchup, of course.
Today, we had a high of 62 degrees (random) and I had the most glorious outdoor run in a LONG time. We did our usual 3.2 mile loop but doing it in 60 degree weather was just 1,000 times better and we did it about 30 seconds faster than our normal time!
Afterwards, I went back to work for a bit and snacked on what I believe might be my new favorite Larabar:
I had always wondered how to pronounce Larabar (and whether that umlaut actually did anything). From Larabar themselves, it’s Lah-ra-bar. Or like the name Laura-bar. Now I can sleep, ha ha.
All day long, I had “meat” loaf on the brain but in the car on the way home, my tooth started hurting again and all I could think about was oatmeal. So oatmeal it was.
This really hit the spot! I used 1/2 cup oats, with 1/2 cup water and almond breeze and cooked it on the stove top 🙂 Then added 1/2 cup pumpkin, a sprinkle of pumpkin pie seasoning and brown sugar, topped off with peanut butter and apple butter.
YUM! I’m so glad I ate this for dinner.
After “dinner” I made a run to the store to get the aforementioned orajel, which was 7 freakin’ dollars, but once I used it, oh so totally worth it.
Eventually I wanted a snack and fell back on an old favorite.
Peanut butter and chocolate make everything better 🙂
My tooth is still feeling pretty good so I’m hoping this is just a minor irritation. I guess we will see!
Just incase, I’m going to have a green monster in the morning. No chewing required 🙂
Good night all, hope you had a good Monday.
