Another Monday Down

The sun was shining brilliantly again today! Being Canadian, I am not naïve enough to think that winter is over, but I’ll take this while we have it complaint free! :) IMG_0701

We got great news from DS’s hockey coach today. The team that was tied with us for second place lost last night so the boys are guaranteed a spot in the finals! If they win tomorrow, they’ll get home ice advantage so keep your fingers crossed!

Snacks of the day! IMG_0705 IMG_0702
Mmmm…the WCMN Luna was superb! Love it. I still think the chocolate peppermint stick one comes in first. Just by a hair, though.

Even though it was yoga day in the gym I did my 30 minutes of cardio and 20 of strength. They like us to be out of the gym by 12:40 on Monday’s, but I decided that I would be quiet enough with the weights that I could stay. And so I did. I’m such a rebel! ;)

Lunch was a simple sandwich today. I used the last half of a WW baguette (review to come!) and stacked it with turkey pepperoni, roasted red peppers, LC cheese wedge and romaine: IMG_0703
Mmmmm….. IMG_0704

It was just DD and me for dinner because the boys were at hockey practice. I made some all white meat chicken burgers on the GF grill for us. I mixed the meat with some bread crumbs, egg whites, onions and spices like cumin, chilli powder, oregano, basil, salt and pepper. I served them up with Sabra hummus, goat brie, lettuce and hot pepper rings (for me): IMG_0707

Look how melty and juicy this burger looks! IMG_0709

Dessert was even better! DD and I each had a serving of Averie’s chocolate mousse with strawberries and some fruity cream cheese dip. IMG_0710

You know you want some! Speaking of Averie, she’s hosting a great Celestial Tea giveaway! Go check it out. Also, go on over to Mastering Public Health for a 10% coupon code for Love Street products!

Bye for now!!
