Hi guys! Hope you’re all doing well. I woke up with a nasty headache this morning. Ugh. I think I let myself get dehydrated last night which is never a good thing. No post for me yesterday because I was busy hosting a gold exchange at my place last night! What a BLAST that turned out to be. If you’ve never heard of such a thing, basically you get all your buds to come to your place with all their unused, unwanted gold. I had a jeweller at my place all set to trade said gold for cash. Depending on what you have to trade, this can be very lucrative. One lady walked out with $1100.00!!! The perk of having this at my place was that I received 10% of the total sales. Let’s just say I cashed in big time! WOOT!
How ‘bout we get to some eats here? Prepared to be shocked because I did not eat oats for breakfast yesterday. GASP! Instead, I ate this Hungry Girl inspired egg “dish”:
I scrambled a ½ cup of Egg Beaters then dropped pieces of a LC cheese wedge in near the end. Bringing up the side was 2 pieces of toasted 12 grain bread from the bakery. This was delicious and kept me full as long as my oats do. You know, although I love oats I think the main reason they make an appearance everyday is that I know that the meal will stick to my ribs like no other. Slowly, I am finding other food to be just as satiating so I’ll be shaking up the normal morning routine here and there.
I skipped the gym to go home and prep the house for the party. Cleaning everything while the kids are there is usually counter productive. HA! Before going home I late a light snack to get me through to lunch…a Special K pretzel granola bar:
DS loves these and I have to agree that although small, they are good!
Lunch was eaten at my desk when I got back to work. I made a big, yet sparse, salad….1 head of romaine lettuce, cucumber and tuna with Japanese Ginger dressing:
Then I ate some fruit leftover from a meeting at the office.
Once home I recruited the kids to do some last minutes chore while I got dinner going. The fam had pasta and hard boiled eggs. I was too excited to feel hungry so I had a bowl of Fage with crushed pineapple and granola:
Some dinner, eh??? There was some chocolate, too! Shortly after the girls started to arrive and we gossiped the whole 3hrs the jeweller was doing his thang. As I mentioned, nobody went home empty handed and the exchange was a huge success. My hubby and I finally sat down at 10pm and I was starving so I ate an unpictured bowl of Kashi U with USVAB. Yum!
This morning it was raining hard. I just keep telling myself that the last remnants of winter are being washed away! I had no time to make the kids lunches last night so I busted that out before getting a very quick bowl of oats in the microwave.
-2/3 cup water
-1/3 cup Old Wessex 5 Grain oats
-crushed pineapple (about a ½ cup with juice)
Work was a little hectic today. Lots of data entry to do. Mid morning I avoided the free Mr. Munchy rabbit:
And opted for a brownie zbar instead!
Love. I washed that back with a Stash tea…
No gym again today because I had to meet DS’s hockey team’s manager at the bank to close out the account. We both needed to sign for it and it needed to be done by the end of the month so that’s that. I went home afterwards and ate a Dr. Kracker with some hummus spread on:
A double chocolate biscotti with a side of cat was enjoyed after my meal…
DD and I went for hair cuts (well, more like trims) after dinner and then we stopped at the grocery store for drinking boxes. I can’t ever leave only with whatever I went in for and found a few extra goodies. This is the one I was most excited about!
This is by no means a good for you type of spread and I do not care. It was out of this world good and it’s not like I’m gonna eat the tub in a day…or week, even! Gotta live a little, right???
Off to watch Vampire Diaries!!
Bye for now!!
