Look who went MIA again yesterday! I really started feeling like shiz as the day wore on plus the kids were at the pool until 8pm so by the time I got home I was done. I should have known I was in for a rough day when my oats started to look unappealing!
- 2/3 cup water
- 1/3 cup Quaker oats
- PB&Co cinnamon raisins
I hopped on the elliptical at the gym. I was sad to see that Rach is no longer on over the noon hour. Boo!!! About halfway through I started to feel really weak and slowed down for a few minutes to assess the situation. It passed so I continued on.

This was actually pretty tasty, but not meant to be inhaled, I’m sure. It wasn’t long after this that I started to feel horrible. The last hour of work dribbled by, but I was finally able to hit the road for home….for a minute. I threw back some Tums, packed the kids swim stuff and took off for the rink as DS had a 5:15 game. *sigh* There are 3 levels of rep hockey in our city….triple A, double A and single A. The triple A team was finally chosen and to top a bad day off, DS was cut. Initially it was like a kick in the pants, but the coach was very positive and he will being playing only one step down at double A. This means more ice time which is a very good thing. Also, the triple A coach made him an “AP” (or alternate player). This means that he will have the opportunity to practice at the higher level and fill in if a player is ill for a game. It’s a win-win situation at this point. It does mean 3 more days of hockey, though. :/
This is actually the other muffin, but I couldn’t snap a pick while driving! HA! I loved this muffin even with an upset stomach. The orange and molasses went perfectly together along with sweet raisins and crunchy nuts. I must see if she’ll share the recipe with
me us. Insert 1 + hours at the pool and I finally rolled into the driveway, exhausted at 8:30. I didn’t even feel like eating anything but knew I’d be in worse shape if I didn’t so I grabbed an easy, fast bowl of Wildroots cereal.
Bad lighting = bad picture!
- 2/3 cup water
- 1/3 cup Old Wessex 5 grain cereal
- sprinkle of granola
I didn’t want to push my luck by going to the gym today so I bailed. Before I actually made the decision I ate a Luna protein bar:
I was just so so over this bar. It had a grainy after taste that I wasn’t really digging. I liked the cookie dough one much better.
Once home I prepared some egg whites in the microwave which got sandwiched between a toasted Ezekiel English muffin that was coated with a LC cheese wedge and pinenut hummus. On the side was more hummus with some Dr. Kracker Hummus Mummus crisps: I enjoyed this out on the deck with a Prevention magazine. And my cats. Nice.
On the way home I stopped by the seamstress to pick up my perfectly altered skirt. Now that it doesn’t hug my ass in all the wrong spots, I can actually wear it! LOL!
Dinner was some fast fry pork chops and for me, a big bowl of fruit salad:
I really liked the consistency of this treat. It was dense like a fudgy brownie, but it smelled more gingery than it tasted. I think I’ll spread some nut butter on the second piece when I eat it. ;)
This brings me to the present, sitting on the couch enjoying the last night of no plans for the next 7 days. I really hope Vampire Diaries isn’t a repeat!!
Bye for now!!
