Happy Wednesday, everybody! I’m having an especially good day because I became involved in a huge movement that will help feed less fortunate families over the holidays. The campaign is called “Project Feed Me” and is aimed solely at keeping people less fortunate than us fed. The premise is very simple. Each Monday starting this week (October 12), Natalie will post a “food item of the week” per se. The items are picked from a Food Bank approved list and are very inexpensive. Everyone who registers is promising to purchase 2 of each item for the next 9 weeks. At the end of the 9 weeks, simply bring all your collected food to your local Food Bank. Easy peasy, right? So PLEASE make your way over to the website to register (and read much more information about this GREAT initiative)! Just a head’s up…this weeks item is canned chilli! I am so excited to see the final results!
On to breakfast, shall we?
-1 cup coffee
-1/2 cup rye flakes
-macadamia nut butter
-cinnamon plum tea jam
Nom, nom, nom….
Work was busy again today, but I did manage to squeeze a pre workout snack-a-roo in!
I dipped these crunchy guys into my tea. Mmmm… I got a cute pen today for donating to a co-workers Walk for the Cure fund raiser. Check it out!
I rode the elliptical at the gym today which was rather delightful. Or, as delightful as sweating can be, anyways!!!

I made myself a very tasty sandwich for lunch today.
Soft flax bread, sunflower seed butter, dried cherries, carrots and lettuce. I’m not a big sandwich girl, but this was da bomb! I also enjoyed a mocha cappuccino in my Hallowe’en mug!
I started feeling snacky a few hours later so I broke into my (huge) grapes;
The kids had swimming lessons tonight, but I was done work at 4 so I had time to put a decent meal together. I roasted up a squash into fries as well as a pork tenderloin. Steamed green beans added some colour to the plate.
Dessert was a piece of pumpkin coconut chocolate chip bar;
Swimming went well. I enjoy going to the pool because I can spend the hour reading while the kids do their thing. I’ve got a few more things to get done tonight and plan on getting to bed early because DS is on the ice at 6am to 7:20 and I have to be there to pick him up. Fun times. Have a great night!
Bye for now!!
