Happy Monday! You might think I’m nuts, but Monday is my favourite work day of the week. I find I’m most productive and it tends to go by quickly. Although my oats tasted great today, they did not look it! Check it out.
-2/3 cup water
-1/3 cup Old Wessex 5 Grain oats
-honey pecan spread & almond butter
Ugly, yes, but satisfying, too!
One of the girls at the office hosted an Italian bridal shower for her sister over the weekend and brought loads of the leftover cookies in to share. DOH! I had these 2 plus one more that missed the photo shoot.
It was pretty hard to resist them all day because they were all the types of cookies that I grew up with and haven’t had in some time. I managed to stay away, though!
Seeing as I munched those treats I decided to eat my fruit salad before hitting up the gym:
This is the end of it, but it was so good that I made another batch when I got home from work! It was yoga day in the gym today so I decided on a ½ hour jog (6mph) and a 10 minute incline walk (4mph, 7% incline). This way I was out of their way in good time.

Dinner was inspired by what Andrea had for dinner last night. She roasted asparagus wrapped in bacon and served it over a bed cheesy polenta. I had no bacon but I did have asparagus and polenta! I used 2 wedges of LC cheese in my polenta and also grilled a chicken breast. Kale chips brought up the side:
Yumma! Dessert was an “Erica” granola bar:
I went to a make up Pilate’s class tonight. It was brutal! I’ve never had this instructor before and she was like a drill sergeant. Not only did I work hard, but there was this young little thing beside me wearing white tights. During one set of moves (which took 15mins) I had the misfortune of discovering that she had no underwear on. Really? Really?! Some of the positions we contort ourselves into require underwear!! Good Lord.
I’m off to watch Dirty Jobs, then bedtime! Catch ya all tomorrow!
Bye for now!
