Look who’s here after going AWOL yesterday?! We had such a busy day that by the time I sat down last night I was spent. We started the day off early…6:30am early in order to get to our out of town hockey game. I fuelled myself with a warn breakie just before we hit the road.
-1 cup water
-1/2 PC 5 Grain cereal
The boys lost miserably. They played the first period great and then it turned into a bit of a gong show. *sigh* Meh, what’s done is done! We were only a stone’s throw to Niagara Falls so we made our way there with another family for some lunch and arcade time. I munched on a Quaker Delights bar on the drive over.
Most restaurants were closed for the season so our options were limited but luckily a little Italian restaurant was open. Pasta it was! I enjoyed a piece of fresh Italian bread while waiting for my meal…
So soft and doughy! Lunch was an order of penne arribiata (a spicy tomato sauce) which was delicious.
I ate about half of what you see here. The weather was damp and foggy, but not too cold…4*C/39F….so we wandered up and down Clifton Hill and then went into the arcade so the boys could burn some energy off. Here are some random shots I took along the way…
After the arcade we hit up the candy store! Check out some of the goodies!
I bought myself a chocolate covered pretzel road for the road. But before we left for the day I made sure to get some photos for you! I couldn’t get the Horseshoe Falls (the Canadian side) because it was just too foggy, but I did get the American ones!
I’ve always thought that the falls are prettiest in the winter time. The water is such a gorgeous blue and the mounds of ice are spectacular. I’m lucky to live so close to one of the world’s 7 wonders!!
It was nearing 5:30 when we got back to the homestead and we all crashed in different areas of the house…DD on the computer, DS on the Play Station 3, me on the laptop and my hubby in front of the TV. Dinner was random to say the least as none of us were really hungry after our big lunch. Around 7 I made myself an omelette with ½ a red pepper, mushrooms, Allegro spices and herbs cheese, a 1/3 cup of Eggbeaters and a toasted WW English muffin for the side.
Then I enjoyed 2 mint chocolate chip cookies that I had made using Mama Peas recipe…with a side of cat:
So that was my Sunday! On to my Monday….
-1 cup water
-1/2 cup PC 5 grain cereal
-Enjoy Life Foods trail mix
-Rice Dreams “eggnog”
I was lazy this morning and cooked this up in the microwave. I like the consistency it gets after sitting for a few minutes. It’s not something I ever get when I do them on the stove top.
There was not a lick of excitement at work today. I guess that’s a good thing, right?? Here are my snacks:
Nothing to crazy there. I also had a few of these organic pomegranate candies that I got at the Falls…
They’re quite tasty and the ingredient list is nothing to sneeze at!
I hopped on the treadmill today and did a bit of interval work. I walked for 5 minutes at 4.4mph and ran for 5 at 6.5 mph, all at a 2% incline. Man, did I get HOT doing this!!!

While I was at the Bulk Barn Friday night I saw, to my delight, a BIG bin of cinnamon hearts!!
You can be sure that I have (and will) be eating these every day until I can’t find them anymore. My poor teeth.
This was before it was all done cooking. I was a busy cooking diva!!! :D
It’s time for me to settle in with a nice, hot tea and a bit of TV.
Bye for now!!
