I was a tad short on time yesterday morning so cereal came to the rescue in the form of Kirkland cinnamon pecan and PC organic flakes:
I had my very last Luna bar before going to the gym. **Sniff sniff**
At least the last one was a good one! I hammered out 3 miles on the treadmill at the gym at a speed of 4.2 mph and the incline set at 7.5. I’m glad I did it, but it was a struggle to get there, I tell ya! Friday workouts just seem tough, ya know?
I mentioned that I was short on time in the morning so lunch was a Smart Ones microwave meal.
I use to eat meals like this all the time but got out of the habit. Although this was good, it made me feel really full. More than I should have felt for the amount of food: Guess that what all the added salt and preservatives do to you, right? I think I’ll be staying away from these from now on!
There was a meeting at work and at the end of the day they put all the leftover treats out for us to eat. I chose a pecan tart (which wasn’t very tasty) and a chocolate chip cookie.
A little Friday treat is always in order. Especially when there’s also coffee to dip said cookie in!
I kept dinner simple by trying a sweet potato topped with almond butter. This was a first for me!
Yumalicious! I’m glad I finally decided to climb out from under the rock I’ve been living beneath! I also had a zucchini jam oat bar with a small scoop of vanilla ice cream.
I spent the evening sprawled on the couch magazine reading. T’was wonderful! The perfect ending to the week.
DS had hockey practice this morning but I stayed back with DD to get the housework done. My kitchen had been neglected for far too long and was treated to a deep clean today. Counters, appliances, floors, the inside of the fridge…..all got a good scrub-a-dub-dub. DD vacuumed for me which, although was not done perfectly, was hugely appreciated. I owe that kid an allowance! ;)
Before all that took place I made myself some steel cut oats. I really need to make a pot one night and portion it out for morning because I really do adore the texture.
- 1 cup water
- 1/4 cup steel cut oats
- cinnamon, vanilla extract, pinch of salt
- pumpkin butter, chopped almonds & coconut flakes
A bowl of fall! I enjoyed this while blog reading. Just before lunch DD and I had to go buy her hip hop shoes for dance on Monday and we stopped at Winner’s to get a gift cert for my sister’s b-day which is tomorrow. I can never leave that place (similar to Marshall’s) without doing extra damage.
Can’t wait to try out that maple agave! And the gin gins are awesome. I also bought these unique sounding chips:
DD and I tested them out and they’re decent enough. More like a rice cracker consistency wise, but they had good flavour to them…
Lunch was a warm kale, tomato and maple tempeh bacon salad served in my spanking new purple leaf bowl, courtesy of Winner’s:
I snacked on a rice cake with Maranantha chocolate PB spread, but it escaped the photo shoot! We had to hit the road by 5pm for an out of town hockey game. Seeing as it was over the dinner hour and we knew we’d be home a little late, Subway ended up being our choice for dinner. I rolled with a turkey and Swiss on WW with all the fixings:
The boys lost BUT played pretty great considering it’s their first game together as a team. Besides, it was an exhibition game so didn’t count point wise.
We haven’t been home long, but long enough for me to brew a David’s Tea to sip on while blogging>
We have to be on the soccer field for 8am so it’ll be early to bed for all of us. Then there’s another hockey practice at 12:30, then my sister’s b-day dinner. I’m tired already. :)
Bye for now!!
