If I didn’t work I could lounge around in bed each morning for as long as my little heart desired. It would be so luxurious. Instead, I wake up to what feels like the middle of the night because it’s still dark outside and d-r-a-g my bootie to the shower so I can at least be coherent. Hmmmm…..maybe getting up early 5 days a week is what makes the weekend “sleep ins” so appealing!
-1 cup water
-1/2 cup kamut flakes
-raspberries & hemp seeds
Time for snacks of the day!
This was the last raspberry oatmeal muffin. Looks like I’ll be doing some more baking this weekend. Actually, I received a special tool in the mail yesterday that will help me out with my baking! And in my world, not much beats fresh, sweet, juicy pineapple.
My goal at the gym today was just to move. I was feeling pretty stiff when I woke up this morning and just needed to work the kinks out of my body. Time on the elliptical = mission accomplished.

By the time I left the gym I was famished. I’m sure the fact that I was pretty psyched about what I brought didn’t help matters.
This is Ryvita pumpkin & oat crackers topped with avocado/LC mash, sliced, grilled chicken breast and sweet potato rounds.
How fabulous does that look? These were OUTSTANDING! And because it was basically finger food, it took awhile to eat so the goodness was stretched out. LOL! BTW, the avocado mash was basically a half an avocado and LC cheese wedge smooshed together to make a “spread”.
The kids were both on the ice today (or so I thought) from 5:30-6:20, but at opposite ends of town, of course. HA! I needed something fairly quick for an early dinner and decided to make homemade burgers on the George Foreman (GF). I used a pound of extra lean ground beef, 2 egg whites, parsley, salt & pepper. I realized too late that I was out of bread crumbs so I crushed about 1 cup of these “chips”.
These worked really well and gave the burgers great flavour without having to add too much else. I topped my burger with Dijonnaise, ketchup, pickles, hot pepper rings and lettuce. The bread was an Arnold Thin:
When DD and I arrived at the rink I knew something was up because the lot was pretty empty and usually it’s hard to find a spot. Turns out lessons were cancelled this week! At least wasn’t the only parent to not realize it….there were quite a few of us there. I decided to head to the other rink to catch DS’s practice.
Once I’m done here I’ll be making a tea and settling in to watch my eye candy for the week in the form of The Vampire Diaries. I’ll be checking up on our awesome Canadian hockey team, too! And I just heard that Canada got another gold! WOOT!! :D The only thing better than that right now is the fact that tomorrow is Friday. Bring it on….
Bye for now!!
