Nothing New Here

Woot woot!! It’s Wednesday! Only 2 more days until the weekend is upon us. Anybody planning on going to see New Moon on Friday?? We’re going to a hockey game so I won’t be in any crowded theatre. I plan to take DD next weekend when it’s (hopefully) quieter. 100_7207
-2/3 cup coffee
-1/3 cup Quaker oats
-cashew baby
-cranberry sauce
-chopped peanuts
-USVAB 100_7206
I still have a few of the cashew babies left so I melted one into the pot today. Yum-o!

I tried a new (to me) bar before the gym today. It was a choco-walla bar; 100_7209
This was great! It had a rich chocolate flavour, dense consistency and chunks of chocolate through out. I’m gonna have to give the other Odwalla flavours a go!

The gym today was rotten. Somebody fiddled with the thermostat and it made for an exhausting run. My legs felt like lead and it felt like I couldn’t get enough air into my lungs. It was extremely tough and by the end I felt like passing out, but I finished. By the skin of my chinny-chin-chin!

I seriously don’t know how you girls who live in hot weather places do it. Kudos to ya!

At least I packed a refreshing lunch! I brought some Fage; 100_7214

And topped it with TJ’s blueberry muesli and fresh raspberries; 100_7216

Dinner was our planned roast in the crock pot. I almost forgot to take the meat out of the freezer again. DOH! I just seasoned it with some Montreal steak spice and let it go for 9 hours. I served it up with some baked potatoes and steamed broccoli; 100_7218

I also had some of this pomegranate chutney on the side for dipping;


We just got back from the pool and I’m thinking about watching Twilight again. My hubby is leaving soon for hockey and there’s not much on TV. What a life! Before I sign off I wanted to tell you all to head over to Coco's blog for a chance to win some Pop Chips!!!

Bye for now!!
