Holy smokes I had a BUSY weekend! This will be a picture heavy post because I spent the majority of the weekend at various arenas so there’s not too much to say. We did get a crap load of snow which made the kids pretty happy! Between games Saturday they bundled up for some tobogganing and snowman making:
I stayed warm inside with a mug of this: Let’s just say that I don’t share the kids enthusiasm for the snow. ;)
One of the Dad’s from the hockey team has a fabulous Canon and takes amazing photos at the games. I asked if I could use some and was told to “knock myself out” so THANKS to Ken for the following photos! (some are from the tournament, some from random games in October & November)
The second (close up) photo has to be one of my all time favourite taken of him at hockey. YAY!
The games Friday and Saturday were at 8 which meant getting to the rink by 7am. I filled my belly with a bowl of Nature’s Path Flax porridge on morning and a farm fresh egg over whole grain toast another: This morning’s bowl of oats was eaten a little later in much brighter natural light:
Lunches had been a mixed bag. Spinach salad at the rink, leftover chilli and the last bit of Greek yogurt with granola: Friday night we went to Boston Pizza after hockey. I ordered an individual Szechuan chicken pizza which was really yummy! Saturday night the fam had lasagne so I made myself a panini with roasted turkey breast, cassata cheese and some Dijon mustard on the side for dipping; Tonight was burger night which made me feel like it should be warm outside. Ha-ha! Mine was a veggie burger with smoky salsa, mustard, mayo pickle, cassata cheese and lettuce: The only snack I had was Friday morning at work.
I tend to always have a morning snack through the week, but very rarely snack on the weekends. I’m too distracted to think about being hungry so don’t actually eat until I AM hungry. At my desk at work it’s easy to mistake boredom for hunger. That and I do need extra fuel for the gym on weekdays.
On to what I feel thankful for this week. I am thankful for the great parents on DS’s hockey team this year. We spend so much time at the rink and there’s always company to pass the time with. We have to be at the rink an hour before the game starts so there’s a lot of downtime waiting around and I’d have pulled my hair out by now without all these great people! so, THANKS! And for food item #8? Check it out… CRACKERS! My food bank box is getting quite full. How about yours??
Bye for now!!
