That’s right! The weekend is just around the corner. This week feels like it has gone by very fast. I’m sure not complaining! Even though it wasn’t the case, I was feeling rushed for time this morning so I decided a bowl of cereal was the way to go; 100_5986

This here is a cup of Kashi U, fresh blueberries and USAB. I’m almost done the box which makes me sad because this is one terrific cereal. 100_5985

I managed to get a few odd jobs off my desk today. Glad to see the back of them! My morning snack was a Clif Dipped Mojo Bar; 100_5989

This bar had me at first glance; 100_5991

Anything coated in luxurious chocolate has to be good, right? Right. One taste blew my mind! It was like a big mouthful of crunchy peanut butter and nutella. Heaven. The only thing that gave me pause was the 210 calorie count. I normally would want a bar that high to be bigger than this was, but it’s nothing that would stop me from purchasing more on my next road trip to the US. I have a PB & Jelly dipped one still to try and I’m hoping it’s as good. Here’s a final thought on Mr. Dipped! 100_5995

Then I was off to the gym. I really had to talk myself into going today. I just was not feeling it. Those are usually the days that end up rocking and today was no exception!

  • Time: 50 minutes
  • Avg Hr: 162
  • Max Hr: 186
  • Calories Burned: 470
  • Distance: 4.5 miles

Five minutes of this was spend giving my legs a really good stretch. Feels great after a run, for sure!

Lunch was a bit of a cop out, but really tasty! I was so unmotivated last night while trying to figure out what I wanted that I just threw 3 ingredients in a container…..leftover zucchini, feta and chopped walnuts; 100_5997

This turned out to be a fabulous blend of flavours! I also ate some fruit that I collected from the staff kitchen that was left over from a meeting… 100_5987

Love fresh fruit. Especially when it’s already cut up for me! :D

DS was on the ice again this aft at 5 so I drove over to the rink to watch for a bit. On the way I snacked on some peach yoga chips; 100_5999

I’ve only got 2 packs left which is a sad thing.

DD and I made our way home at 5:30 so I could get dinner going. I grilled up some bone in chicken breasts and red onions, nuked a sweet potato pour moi and dished out some baby carrots and Sabra jalapeno hummus; 100_6000

FYI….that extra crispy skin came off as soon as the picture was taken. I have never, ever been a fan of the skin….crispy or otherwise. Ewww. My sweet end was a Skinny Cow fudge pop. 100_6001

I spent some time on the deck with my book before collecting DD to go purchase a gift for a party she’s invited to tomorrow. Parties sure have come a long way since I was a kid. This sleepover starts at 6:30pm tomorrow and is being held at a HOTEL. Yes, you read that right, a hotel. According to the invite, there will be movies, swimming, and a waffle b-fast bar in the morning. I think I want to go to this party, too. ;)

I’ll sign off now as I go reminisce about b-day parties of the past where we played pin the tail on the donkey and ate a good ole Betty Crocker cake with Smarties as decorations….

Bye for now!


  1. what? kid party in a hotel? wooooooo!!! things have changed!!! :D

  2. Great job on the workout! way to burn those calories girl! Love mojos! They are awesome. Anything involving feta=a delicious meal ;) party at a hotel??? Gosh...fancy pancy !

  3. Oh gosh a hotel sleepover? That is crazy, but sounds like so much fun! lol

    That is an amazing job at the gym Krista! I haven't gone in about a week =[ Major lack of motivation for some reason. Major props to you! Your breakfast looks gorgeous as usual. :)

  4. Whaaat!? I'm not thaaat much older than DD and I never got to go to a party at a hotel! Waffle breakfast bar? They don't know how good they have it :)

    Your 3 ingredient lunch looks good! What a great combo!

  5. I love your "thrown together" lunch! Sometimes the simplest flavor combinations are the best!

    The birthday party sounds like fun! None of my friends have parties at a hotel... I want to go too! :)

  6. Loving the blueberries! A kid's birthday party in a hotel...WOW! Would love to see the waffle bar!

  7. I haven't tried that Clif bar yet but based on your review I'm thinking that needs to change!

    When I was a kid, a few of my friends had birthday parties at a hotel but not with a waffle bar! That sounds fun!!

  8. You really burn some brutal calories when you work out.. WOW!! You rock!!

    That bar looks soooo good!! It would have had me a "hello" too! ;) LOL!

    Sleepover sounds awesome... hotel is a good idea actually... out of the house and 'different'! I bet she'll have a blast!

  9. Wow, that birthday party sounds like a lot of fun! (I'm with you, I remember things like pin the tail on the donkey and hide and!) That lunch combo looks amazing!

  10. A sleepover birthday party at a hotel?! Crazy! We never had anything that extravagant, that's for sure.

    I so want to try that dipped Mojo - yum!


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