This is what I kept telling myself all day at work. You see, things were s-l-o-w and I was sitting at my desk agitated thinking about all the things I could/would be doing if I wasn’t sitting there “wasting” time. I had to keep giving myself a shake and reminding myself that sitting there, doing nothing, was EXACTLY what my body needed to kick this cold to the curb once and for all. Had I been home, sitting still would not have been on the agenda. Laundry, vacuuming, kitchen floors, bathrooms, groceries were all the things I would have been doing. Productive? Yes. Conducive to getting well? No. *Sigh*
I just love the way almond butter melts into the oats. Divine!
I could hardly wait to go home for lunch because I had a yummy soup “recipe” that had been brewing in my mind that I wanted to try. There was some leftover grilled tomatoes and steamed cauliflower in the fridge which I combined with a wedge of LC cheese and some chicken stock and pureed it in the Magic Bullet. Then I stirred in the last of the TJ’s harvest grain blend and heated it all up in the microwave. I paired it with a toasted WW bagel and a smidge of butter;
This was SO filling. I probably shouldn’t have finished it because it sat kinda heavy all afternoon. It was just that tasty. For an afternoon snack I munched on a Dark Chocolate Cherry Kashi bar;
The evening was a complete whirlwind. I finished work at 4pm and we had to leave the house at 4:45 in order to make DS’s 5:15-6:35pm practice. And right after that we had to haul ass downtown for 7:30 to get to the Storm hockey game as DS’s Tyke team was playing the intermission. PHEW! Needless to say, I packed a wrap to go. On a flatout wrap I put some sunflower seed butter, a grated carrot, lettuce and dried cherries;
I discovered tonight at practice that one of the other mom’s is into healthy eating and even makes her own almond milk. The time sure flew as we were chatting! The Storm game was good. Our team lost 4-3 in a shoot out. :( DS had a fun time playing at the intermission and the boys all looked really sharp in their new jersey’s. It’s pushing 11pm and as I type this out I’m eating an apple with some almond butter:
Bedtime will be very soon. DD has her first cross country meet at 11am tomorrow and I’m looking forward to that for sure. I hope you all had a great Friday!
Bye for now!!
