Today has been the strangest day weather wise! It actually started raining yesterday afternoon and continued through the night and into late this morning. With that came pea soup fog and it was WARM! Then around 11am the fog broke and the sun came out for a bit. Next thing we knew, it was snowing! Geez! Make up you mind already, Mother Nature!

-1/2 cup PC 5 grain cereal
I wasn’t sure how the kefir would go down in the hot oats, but I liked what it did to the feel of them. The taste got lost, but the oats became so thick and creamy; almost pudding like. I have a gut feeling you’ll be seeing kefir in my bowl more often in the next few days!
Here are my snacks for the day:
This was my first shot at a Gnu Bar and it was pretty good. Not my favourite, but I’d buy it again if I came across it. When I first opened the pack I realized that the bar smelled very sweet and I was a bit worried, but turns out it wasn’t too bad! It had a nice soft cookie consistency and you can’t go wrong (or I can’t) with 12g of fibre. I also appreciated the natural ingredient list. BTW…aren’t those some SAD looking grapes and blueberries? LOL…
I ended up on the treadmill at the gym today and hammered out a decent enough run. My cardio felt good, but my legs, or more specifically, my knees and ankles weren’t overly impressed. This worries me because I don’t want another injury to come about. Something to keep an eye on for sure.

Lunch was serving of my 10 minute chicken & rice soup.
With the weather outside this ended up being the perfect lunch!
My dinner tonight was courtesy of work. There was a big lunch meeting and all the leftovers were put out for the rest of us. I took the opportunity to plate up some gorgeous salad. It had spinach, cranberries, goat cheese, mushrooms, hard boiled egg and cashews in it.
This is the only photo I got before I dropped my camera and busted it! :( BLAH! Looks like I’ll be camera shopping this weekend. Anyways, I sprinkled some white balsamic vinegar on before eating. My sweet end was 2 of my hubby’s PB & chocolate chip cookies. Also unphotographed.
Before I go, what camera do YOU use? I’ve been using a Kodak Easy Share but would like something a wee bit better. Please share!
Bye for now!!
