I am SO glad to see the back end of this week. I need this weekend to re-charge my batteries. I enjoyed a delicious breakfast today which was a great start to my Friday;
- 1/3 cup water & USAB
- 1/3 cup sunrise blend w/ quinoa
- cinnamon, vanilla
- the last of my Sahale mix
I so love this blend! I’m running low so I’ll have to get up to the Bulk Barn to stock back up. I still need to try it jazzed up savoury style!
I know I said I was going to stay away from dried fruit for a bit but I came across this packet of dried cranberries hiding in my desk this morning and the were screaming, “eat me, eat me”! You understand why I had to oblige, right?
These actually made a pretty decent snack. They weren’t sweet…more tart than anything. I likely wouldn’t buy them, though. They be a little to dangerous in my cupboard!
Today was the first day that I felt like I had some energy back and was looking forward to my me time at the gym. Boy, did it feel good to run for 40 minutes! I also did some of the SGBC exercises. What didn’t get done today will be done later on tonight.

I made myself a humongous salad for lunch today…
This guy had romaine lettuce, a red bell pepper, cucumber, hemp seeds and a chopped up St. Yves Chick’n patty. This all got topped off with the last of my Cranberry Walnut Gorgonzola dressing from TJ’s.
There was also a handful of mini Breton crackers consumed;
I was pretty busy all afternoon so I took my time munching on a Cherry Pistachio Cookie.
I stretched this treat out for over an hour!
I ran a few errands after work then sat down with a baggie of cherries that I didn’t end up eating at work and watching a little Food TV.
These cherries were picked fresh by my parents last night. One of their friends has a huge cherry tree and they go there every year and pick baskets full. These were super sweet. I could’ve eaten more for sure!
Dinner was baked salmon, steamed vegetable and a red and yellow tomato sprinkled with feta, salt and pepper…
Dessert was a piece of apple Danish that I bought at the market last Saturday.
This was the last of the pastries. My hubby really enjoyed the 5 and a half that he ate! :)
Phew, I after getting this post ready I feel like I’ve eaten a lot today! I’m certainly not wanting anything else right now! Sadly, it’s pretty chilly outside so I don’t see myself venturing too far this evening. I may go shoot some hoops in the driveway with the kids in a few. What are you all up this weekend??
Bye for now
