Happy Friday, everyone!! I’m excited to be staring down barrel of the first hockey free weekend since September 26! WOW! Not saying that I don’t love going to DS’s hockey, but being rink free on what is suppose to be a sunny, WARM weekend feels nice. What are you most excited about heading into the weekend???
While watching CSI last night I snacked on a mini PB cookie Lara bar:
Have I mentioned that I love these mini guys? I think so. I mean, I could just as easily cut a full size one in half, but there’s just something about an open wrapper that beckons it to be eaten ASAP.
I enjoyed a lovely bowl of oats once lunches were made and bags were packed:
-2/3 cup water
-1/3 cup Quaker oats
-thawed strawberries drizzled with cappuccino flavoured agave
Mmmm…I put the agave on the berries before heating them in the microwave so they were nice and syrupy once warm. Stay tuned tomorrow for an oat-free breakfast!
I had a great workout at the gym today. Even with a cold I managed to finish week 1 of Prevention magazine’s “fastest way to sculpt” program. Just to recap, Monday, Wednesday & today I did 30 minutes of cardio with the PM sculpt moves. Tuesday and Thursday I did 45 minutes of cardio only. I’ve already been able to increase the amount of weight in some of the exercises which is awesome, but more importantly, I feel so accomplished. I’m a visual person and call it whatever you want, but I take great satisfaction when I have a high calorie burn after a workout. To me that has always meant cardio, cardio, cardio so it was a lesson for me to realize this week that my higher calorie burn days were the ones with the strength training. What motivates you at the gym?

Are you all ready for the world’s lamest lunch???
LOL! I wasn’t feeling anything last night when I went to make lunch so I left it until this morning figuring inspiration would come, but it did not. So I ended up throwing about 1 cup of soba noodles into a container with a scoop of Sabra hummus and cauliflower from last night. It was actually pretty good, but didn’t do much to satisfy my hunger after my workout! I ended up inhaling 2 ginger cookies from the staff kitchen. *blush* But, damn, they were g-o-o-d!!
I found the Dorset cereal on sale for $4.99. Usually it’s upwards of $6.99! And I finally caved and bought some brown rice syrup and sucanat. I’ve come across a few tasty looking recipes in the Clean Eating magazine that call for these 2 ingredients that I’d like to try. Now just have to be a big girl and buy some coconut butter/oil. *sigh*
Holy cow, I loved this! This meal reminded me of before my hubby and I were married and we used to use pitas for personal pizzas all the time. Seems like ages ago….wait, it was! LOL! My hubby also brought home a real tasty chocolate bar from work that he bought through a fund raiser. My piece is on the right, DS’s on the left,
He had already started eating his, but wanted it in the photo with mine. Hehe…
Well, friends, this was a fun post to write. Why don’t you stop by and ask me a question? And when you’re done doing that, head on over to visit Katie for the most adorable fur baby post! Pepper made the cut! LOL!
Bye for now!!
