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!
