The Best For Last

I must have been more of a scatter brain than usual this morning because I totally forgot to take picture’s of my breakfast. I know. DUH! And it was a good one, too. *sigh* Here’s what went in it, anyways!

  • 1 cup USAB
  • 1/3 cup PC 5 grain cereal
  • cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup cranberry sauce
  • almond butter
  • chopped peanuts

Work was smoking busy today so most of my eats were on the fly. I downed a chocolate chip Clif Bar before the gym; 100_6829

I got a good sweat going on the elliptical today;

  • Time: 45 minutes
  • Avg Hr: 157
  • Max Hr: 182
  • Calories Burned: 435
  • Distance: 5 miles

Work was pretty busy when I got back to my desk so lunch didn’t happen until almost 2. I had a Stonemill bagel with an Yves veggies burger, dijonnaise, ketchup and cucumber slices; 100_6831

T’was delightful! I also indulged in a little treat from the office candy bowl; 100_6832

Before I knew it, it was clock out time! My favourite time of (the work) day. DS had practice at 4:45 so I thought ahead this morning (maybe that’s why I neglected by breakfast photo!) and packed up some pasta to re heat at work for his Thermos. On the way to the rink I stopped at the dollar store to pick up some Halloween napkins for DD’s class party on Friday. I guess they chose what to bring on Monday while she was off sick and napkins was the only thing left. :/ Then I ate a honey crisp apple; 100_6833

I stayed for half of the practice before collecting DD and heading home for some dinner. I combined a 1/2 cup of red kidney beans and jade grain blend with a few scoops of PC Roma sauce and a bit of goat’s milk mozz; 100_6838

Oh, la, la! This was freaking fantastic. Hands down! Of course, once I took the picture I mixed everything up into a gooey mess! :D This is the sauce that I used; 100_6837

Dessert was 2 of Allie’s aprican bites and 3 strawberry pumpkin coconut bites with some almond butter on top; 100_6839

Eeeek…bright flash! Tasty plate of treats.

And the best part of this post? I received a great little treat box all the way from New York today! Sarah from Mastering Public Health offered to send me some TJ’s almond butter when she read that I had run out. Bless her heart! 100_6834

And their were more treats in the box! Check it out… 100_6836 100_6835

Well, my hubby is about to leave for hockey and I plan on making a tea and settling in to watch Law & Order: SVU. Hope you’ve all had a great hump day!!

Bye for now!!


  1. That bagel you had at lunch looks amazing! I haven't had a bagel in too long. Maybe I'll pick a few up this weekend. What a wonderful TJs package! I am yet to try their nut butter. I plan to pick some up over thanksgiving when we're visiting Josh's parents. Enjoy your night!

  4. Yay, so glad you got/liked the package! :) Hope your hubby's team won the game; my brother is a big hockey fan, too (Buffalo Sabres), and actually just went to see them play (@ Islanders) tonight.
    Enjoy the goods! & do tell if I can ever be of service again, haha.. That reminds me, I actually once saw on eBay people advertising a TJ's "shopper" service for those not near one! lol. Gotta give them points for creativity.
