An Uninteresting Day

I started out the week with an 8am dental appointment. Not my idea of fun, but it has to be done, I suppose and I have no cavities. Phew…I’m bad for cavities!

I pulled out the bag of Bob’s Red Mill 7 Grain cereal to try out this morning before I left. To me it was just as delicious as the 10 grain! Once I finish this bag, I’ll go back to the 10 grain simply because it’s got 3 grains more than 7! :)

-3/4 cup water
-1/4 cup 7 grain cereal
-handful of blueberries
-1 Tbsp French Vanilla International Delight coffee creamer

The blueberries and vanilla went very well together in this bowl! YUM!

I got into work at 9 and I’m on early lunch this week so 11:30 came along quickly. Instead of going home to run, I went to our office gym to help clean it up. There was quite a bit of dry wall dust covering everything and some of the equipment needed to be placed. If luck holds, we’ll be back in there this Wednesday. I will do anything needed to make that happen because I’m tired of going home at lunch in this cold weather. Poor me, eh?!

As I mentioned in yesterday’s post, I packed the remaining pizza for my lunch today;

I’m one of those people who like their leftover pizza cold. I don’t like the crust once it’s been reheated. Picky, picky, I know! :~) I also packed lots of grapes and an apple for snacking throughout the day. I figure if I’m gonna nibble, it might as well be on fruit!

There’s some random yellow pepper slices there, too!

As soon as I got home from work I changed into my Pilate’s gear and snacked on an energy bar.

These are freakin awesome! I’m so glad I took the time to make them yesterday! There’s a granola recipe in the same cookbook that I want to try, too, but it sounds dangerously delicious. I have trouble leaving goodies like that alone, so I don’t usually make them. I may have to bite the bullet on this one, though!

Pilate's was really awesome again tonight. We seemed to focus more on the arms whereas last week attention was paid to our legs. I think I may be a little on the stiff side in the morning! We started the class off by lying on a firm cylinder so that our spine was touching it from neck to tail bone. The pressure points felt really nice on my back. I picked DD up from dance after class was done and then flew home(obeying the speed limit, of course...haha!!)to warm up and eat dinner. I figured it would be a good idea to heat up some leftover chili seeing as I was chilled to the bone. I served it with a nice glop of yogurt on top.

Boy, will I ever be happy when I get my camera back!! I hope that picture didn't blind anybody!! I'm too full for a sweet end right now, but I may eat a raspberry oatmeal muffin a little later on.

Well, it seems to me that this post wasn't very interesting today! Thanks for reading to the end! I'm going to snuggle under a blanket on the couch and watch some tube for the rest of the evening. I hope everyone else had the pleasure of being just as lazy!! :)

Bye for now!!


  1. Loving that energy bar!!

    Enjoy your t.v.-watching night!!

  2. Leftover cold pizza is awesome! No need to heat it up. I also like leftover chinese food that weird?

    Glad you are enjoying your pilates class :)

  3. Glad to hear the dentist wasn't too bad! Cold pizza is pretty darn good!!

    Enjoy your night of rest :)

  4. The energy bar is interesting enough!!! :D
    and leftover pizzas always taste great!
    Enjoy your night!

  5. OOOH chili! That reminds me i have a metric ton of it leftover!

  6. i liked the post!

    and if you don't like the pizza crust reheated because it gets too chewy, I always throw mine on a pan on the stove and toast it that way! soooo good!

  7. Glad you have no cavities! That is always exciting ;) Lunch looks yummy! I need to run out and get some more grapes- they are so amazing!

  8. I have never had yogurt on top of chili! Very intriguing.

  9. For reheated pizza - i throw on the oven rack nothing under it for a few minutes.... loves it :) Your food looks amazing. I am hungry now :)

  10. I love the addition of the flavoured creamer to your oats. We always have that stuff kicking around since my mom just HAS to have it in her coffee, so I might just have to try it in my oats one of these days. I used to mix the Vanilla flavoured stuff into canned pumpkin. DELICIOUS.

    I try to avoid making too many goodies as well because I pick at them constantly until they are gone. Tsk tsk. Which is why I end up freezing a lot of stuff too. Out of sight, out of mind!

    Thank you for suggesting Old Navy, that sounds like a perfect fix. Maybe I'll go sometime this week and pick out a new workout top or something in their new line of workout clothes. I really like them!


I'd love to hear from you!! Please leave a comment!
