A Tame 2 Days

Hey everyone! Even though this is another 2 day recap, life has been pretty tame so this shouldn’t take too long. Breakfast yesterday was a bowl of Alpen cereal with USAB:IMG_1400

I warmed this in the microwave for about 45 seconds which made it even better tasting, IMO! IMG_1399

My pre gym snack was a Lara Bar: IMG_1401

My hips were acting a little cranky after my run on Wednesday so I decided that a walk on the treadmill would do the body good. I walked at 3.6 mph with a 4% incline.

  • Time: 50 minutes
  • Avg Hr: 140
  • Max Hr: 161
  • Distance: 3.4 miles

I needed to finish off the last bit of my goat’s milk yogurt before it went bad so I took that for my lunch. IMG_1402

There was about a 1/4 of that 2 cup container left. I mixed it with a scoop of Crofter’s Superfruit jam and topped it off with granola. IMG_1403

I know I’ve said it many times, but I LOVE this yogurt!! :) Later in the afternoon I ate some green grapes which were also on their last legs. (Yes, it’s grocery week!)IMG_1404

My hubby BBQ’d chicken breasts last night and while they were doing their thing I snacked on WAY too many of these babies…IMG_1405

I owe you guys a review if the Dr. Kracker products and I promise to have that up soon. Let’s just say that they’ve been disappearing at a fast pace! When dinner was finally ready to eat, this is what my plate looked like. IMG_1406

Asparagus is SO damn tasty right now!!! After dinner DD ran next door to grab KC and we took off for a nice 1/2 hour family walk. Perfect. We were home in time to watch CSI and Vampire Diaries. I made myself a little sweet end/snack to enjoy while watching. IMG_1407

A mocha and the last pumpkin muffin with some honey pecan butter melted on top. YUM!

I didn’t have to go into the office today as we had a PD Day session in the next town over which was a nice change. My co worker drove so didn’t even need to worry about directions. Before leaving a ate a hearty bowl of oats that I knew would stick to my ribs: IMG_1409

  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1/2 cup kamut flakes
  • cinnamon
  • raisins
  • PB&Co cinnamon raisin PB & a bit of honey pecan butter


I was just starting to feel a bit hungry when lunch was served at noon. They had a bit of a Greek themed spread going on. IMG_1410

The bonuses of this meal was that it was 1) cooked on site 2) relatively healthy 3) fresh. The rice had potential as it was mixed with chickpeas and red lentils, but it lacked huge in the flavour department. I didn’t eat more than one bite. The salad had lots of avocado which I thought was great. Between that and the hard boiled eggs, I didn’t need any dressing. Dessert came in 2 parts. First was some fruit salad and a brownie: IMG_1411

And once I had the taste of chocolate in my mouth I went straight back for a freshly baked, still gooey chocolate chip cookie! IMG_1412

TOTALLY worth the splurge! All in all, the day was pretty fun! And I wasn’t home any later than I normally would’ve been. Dinner tonight was a SOL burger…IMG_1413

I stacked mine with dill pickle, Dijonnaise, ketchup, lettuce and ginger wasabi sauce. On the side was green beans and asparagus that I never got around to eating. IMG_1416

DS had a ball hockey game tonight which was definitely different from the ice hockey that we got used to over the winter! HA! He had a lot of fun and it’s nice that this isn’t as competitive for a change. Afterwards, my hubby treated us to DQ. Here’s DS digging into his treat:


I got major stink eye once I took this! Hehe! I was going to get a small sundae, but once I saw that they had my favourite Blizzard flavour I quickly changed my mind! Here’s my Hawaiian; IMG_1418

Hmmm…looks like I had my fair share of goodies today!

DD and I just got back from another walk with KC. It’s a glorious night out there! I hope the weekend stays warm and wonderful. I’m off to suck back some water. Ice cream always makes me crave water.

Bye for now!!
