Hi everybody! Hope your weekend is going well! I’ve got 3 days of eats to cover so I think I’ll just get to it….
I had a dentist appointment first thing (ugh) so I had a quick bowl of cereal before giving my teeth some extra attention. This is the Kirkland cinnamon pecan cereal: Very good indeed! I snacked on the last Kardea bar before going to the gym: Thursday was 30 Day Shred day at the gym and 4 of us sweat and grunted through it. :) Later on in the day I ordered the Jillian Michaels “No Trouble Zones” DVD. I’ve seen it around blog land and heard good reviews so I’m eager to try it out!
Thursday and Friday were still clean-out-the fridge-and-pantry days so my lunch morphed into a salad of sorts. Corn, edamame, cucumber, feta and white balsamic vinegar. Turned out pretty decent! I really didn’t get hungry for an afternoon snack, but whipped up an amazing little dinner for myself. WW pita, lettuce, mayo, dijon and falafels. Yummy! I munched on blueberries, too; Thursday night was soccer night and SYTYCD night. I was pretty tuckered out so a night in front of the tube was needed. This asthma business of mine seems to be taking a lot out of me and I don’t like it. *sigh*
It was a rainy morning and I just wanted some comfort food. Enter my dark chocolate cherry mocha oats: Doesn’t that just look divine? This is probably my favourite bowl of oats ever. Thank you Starbucks for the inspiration!! :)
Morning snack looked like this: I’m still not over the moon about these bars. Have any of you tried them??
I hoped on the treadmill for a sweaty incline walk on the treadmill. I set the incline to 7.5% and the speed to 4.2. Thirty five minutes later saw me pretty red in the face! LOL
I was getting pretty desperate when it came time to pack my lunch and ended up with goat’s milk yogurt, blueberries and Bear Naked granola. There was also pear ginger jam mixed into the yogurt: Aside from eggs, yogurt and granola is a go-to meal for me. Tell me your favourite go-to meal, K? A co worker brought in some carrot cake after lunch and I took a small piece. Mmmm…not so good. For some reason it tasted like there were grains of sand in it. I ate it to be polite….I’m not feelings hurter! How’s that for improper grammar?? LOL
My hubby finally broke and bought oven ready pizza for supper. The one he picked for me was a thin crust with spinach, feta, mozzarella and edam:
I enjoyed this so much I had a third piece! The crust was light and crispy and reminded me of a croissant. After dinner I finally went to do groceries. I was a little scared that I would have to spend a fortune, but the bill wasn’t much more than what I usually spend. Once again I was exhausted by 9pm and just got comfy on the couch with a book. T’was nice!
After a glorious 10hr sleep I awoke fresh and ready to tackle the day. I was quite hungry so another bowl of cereal was definitely the way to go This is a fave of mine; Wildroots. YUM! We spent a good chunk of the day pulling weeds. They’re much easier to get out when the ground is wet. We’re planning on extending our walkout deck so my hubby took all the measurements needed for the job. After showers and a quick lunch of salad and the last piece of pizza… We went to Home Depot to price out the wood and somehow ended up at Walmart. Backing up to my salad a minute….I used the last 3 falafels and dressed it with some Renee’s pear & blue cheese dressing;
At Walmart I came across a very appealing sounding Hershey’s chocolate bar that HAD to come home with me!
BOOYA!!! For dinner we did a beer butt chicken, quinoa and corn: Dessert was some homemade pineapple coconut froyo. Oh, yes I did!!! More on that to come very soon.
So I’m very excited because we start 2 weeks of vacay on Monday! YIPEE!! I plan on kicking back and having a great time while off… And maybe getting a bit goofy, too.
Should be a riot!!
Bye for now!!
