Go Team, Go!

Hump day! YAY…we’re half way to the weekend. I guess I shouldn’t be wishing my time away, eh? :) Now that fall is here I dug my seasonal tea flavours out. This morning I enjoyed a Holiday Chai in my travel mug; 100_6330

Here’s breakfast! 100_6332

-1 cup water
-1/4 cup Quaker oats
-2.5 tbsp Ruth Chia Goodness Cranberry Ginger flavour
-cinnamon 100_6331

This was just okay. I’m not too sure about the chia mixed in there. It made everything kinda…..”slimy”….for lack of a better word. The flavour was awesome; the consistency was just off for me. Ah, live and learn, right???

Things at work picked up today which was welcome. The day always moves along better the more work you have to do. At 11am I pulled out a toasted coconut banana macadamia nut bar to nosh on; 100_6333

Then I ate the walnuts out of this pack; 100_6316

I snacked on the almonds yesterday and forgot to post about it!

I remembered my gym clothes today and rocked it out on the elliptical today.

Lunch today consisted of spicy bean chilli with a scoop of whipped cottage cheese (to cool it off a wee bit!) 100_6334

There were also 6 unpictured WW crackers that I used as scoops here and there.

Just before going home I ate a sweet gala apple; 100_6336

And a few spearmint flavoured jelly leaves… 100_6335

For some reason, I have always had a soft spot for these sugary morsels.

As soon as 4pm hit I was out the door, picked up the kids, went home and assembled 3 meatball subs for the fam, grabbed a few granola bars and put my wrap together. We were on the road by 4:30. Speedy!

The game was so fun to watch. It was an exhibition game and the first the boys have played together as a team. I managed to snap a photo of DS before they went on the ice. 100_6345

He was a little annoyed with me, but that’s OK. Doesn’t hurt my feelings any! They ended up winning 4-1 and were all pretty psyched about it! GO STORM!!

I finally remembered about my wrap when we got in the Jeep to come home. In a WW wrap I put sunflower seed butter, lettuce, shredded carrots and cranberries, 100_6349

This is quickly becoming one of my go-to, on the move meals. I just love the combination of flavours and it fills me up. I also ate one of the granola bars I had packed; 100_6351

I took the wrapper home and make sure to photograph it like a good little blogger! DS ate 1/2 his sub before the game and the other half on the way home, plus a granola bar, plus a donut. When we got home he ate a PB & nutella sandwich. Holy smokes! Hungry boy!

The kids are both showered and in bed and I even had 20 minutes to take KC for a walk around the block. Lunches still need to be made, but other than that my night is finally free. I think I’m gonna watch a little TV before hitting the sack with my book. See you all tomorrow!

Bye for now!!
