Hey friends! Have you had a good day??? I slept fantastic last night. That makes such a big difference throughout the day. I had an 8am dentist appointment (ugh!) so we left the house a wee bit earlier than normal. To save myself a few minutes I soaked some steel cut oats overnight.
- 1 cup water
- 1/4 cup steel cut oats
Satisfaction in a bowl!
I made it to work by 9 with a headache courtesy of the
devil dentist. I really do dislike going there. Always have. Anyways, enough complaining! Before going to the gym at noon I ate a pineapple carrot bran muffin from the batch I made last week. I had frozen a few when I saw that they weren’t getting eaten fast enough. I now know that they thaw out beautifully!I did cardio and strength again today. I know I shouldn’t be doing the weights 2 days in a row, but I have to take a 1/2hr lunch tomorrow and would rather get my cardio in then.

Yes, that is a mango. I kid you not! It was as hard as an under ripe pear. Weird…
Dinner was early because both the kids were on the ice at 5:30. The fam had pork sausages & mac n’ cheese. No thanks. Mind you, there was NO sign of vegetables on my plate, but I think my dinner was still better than theirs. ;)
A toasted WW Arnold Thin with Greek Sabra hummus and a 1/4 cup of Egg Beaters with some turkey pepperoni and goat brie tucked inside. This was good but not quite enough so I ate one of those blueberry cottage cheese cups that I mistakenly bought:
WAY too sweet for me. I either have to convince DS to try this (he loves blueberry yogurt) or I’m gonna have to put my baking hat on to get rid of the last 2. I simply can not eat them as is. Brrrrr…
This was DD’s last skating lesson. Now my Thursday’s are FREE!!! WOOT! She just wanted to take lessons long enough to feel confident on skates and she feels like she’s at that point. I had to make a pit stop at the grocery store while she skated cuz seriously, when don’t I have to go there??? HA! I picked up a few things that you will see over the next few days. One item I can show you right now is this Bounty bar because I already ate it! ;)
I’d say I’ve been eyeing up this particular bar the last 5 or so times that I’ve seen it, so I finally caved and bought it. It was yum, but dare I say that I would have enjoyed it that much more had it been dark chocolate??? Me thinks my taste buds have grown up!
I’m sitting here patiently waiting to see if Vampire Diaries is another repeat. I really hope not. To keep my mouth occupied, I’m sipping on a cup of this: The kids start March Break tomorrow so they’re pretty excited about that. And I’m pretty excited that tomorrow’s Friday because it’s my last day before my week off! YAY! We’re going to a hockey game tomorrow night so posting might be later than normal. If you care. ;) HA!
Bye for now!!
