I’m happy, and relieved, to say that today went by at a much smoother pace. I also had a better sleep last night so maybe that has something to do with it. And hey! What was up with The Biggest Loser last night? I was annoyed that the first part of it was last weeks show. Then I missed the last ½ hour because I couldn’t keep my eyes open. BOO TV programming!! At least my breakfast photos look much better today…
-1 cup water
-1/3 cup Quaker oats
-1/4 cup crushed pineapple
I enjoyed one of my Pineapple Flax Muffins pre gym this morning:
I’m gonna have to pull out my bakers hat in a few days because these babies are almost gone. I also sipped on a Stash tea:
The gym was a little on the warm side today and I’ve learned that running in that type of heat sets me up for an upset belly the rest of the afternoon so I walked some at a speed of 4.1mph with a 6% incline and ran some at 6.1 with a 0.5% incline. This balanced out well.

I brought a serving of quinoa stew with a thin slice of Asiago bread for my lunch today. I’m surprised there’s still some of the bread left! My boys must’ve forgotten about it. And I’m not about to remind them. ;)
Later on in the day I crunched my way through a bag of carrot sticks (which I took the time to cut while making dinner last night) and sugar snap peas:
The peas were amazingly sweet. I could’ve eaten the whole bag if I’d had it with me.
I followed Coco’s tutorial on how to cook the bok choy and it came out great!
I just got back from the kids swimming lessons and am getting ready to watch Criminal Minds. I’m feeling a bit hungry too so I’m thinking a small bowl of cereal is in my near future. Then bed. *sigh* LOL!
Bye for now!!
