Hi Everyone –
Did you all survive your Monday? Hope so. I had a pretty good day at work, and so far I’ve achieved quite a few things off of my post-work to do list – always a good feeling on a Monday. 🙂
I was running a little bit behind this morning, and was helped a lot by Ben bringing me a cup of coffee while I was still in bed. If it was not for that coffee, I might not have gotten up this morning 😉
For breakfast I had a Luna Bar. It was a new flavor to me – and I liked it a lot. I really love the Luna Bars that do not have Chocolate in them – especially when I am eating one for breakfast. This bar was from my Christmas stocking and it was Toasted Nuts N Cranberry. Give it a try if you see it out there one day! It was a pretty good breakfast, with 180 calories 4 grams of fat, 3 grams of fiber, and ten great grams of protein. I had the bar at 8:30 this morning (I still cannot seem to get breakfast in before I leave for work!) and was going strong until lunch time today.
So, about at the time I was consuming the Luna Bar I realized that I did not have my camera with me today. Hmmm. 😦 My phone took a two pictures for me, and they were pretty bad. But here they are!
For lunch I had a cup of turkey gumbo soup and an awesome sandwich. Yesterday I was finally able to get Arnold’s protein bread!! This morning I made a sandwich with Barney Butter and raspberry jam. It was a great sandwich!
Here is a picture of the soup. The freshly ground pepper really helped it out quite a bit!
I left work a few minutes after five. Once home I had a few minutes of Chris Matthews and Hardball with Ben… and then got down to business. I did yoga for an hour – in an effort to avoid the gym on the busiest day of the week. The yoga was a great workout – I was surprised and pleased.
After yoga, I decided to make dinner. I came up with baked chicken (with lots of spices – my favorites!) cous-cous with broccoli and cauliflower mixed in, and a salad of mixed greens and a self – made salad dressing. The dressing consisted of a drizzle or two of olive oil, a splash of balsamic vinegar, ground pepper, a small pinch of salt and a pinch of garlic powder, oh and a little dab of mustard. I think it came out pretty well! Here is the final picture:
Ohhh…. that’s a photo of the mixed greens before the dressing. Oh well. 😦
Wow. The cookie looks gigantic in this picture! It was not this large. 🙂
Anyhow. I am getting ready to head for bed. I think my new tradition of a warm bath before bed will have to start tomorrow night. But I’m definitely looking forward to it tomorrow!
Good night guys. I hope you all have a nice and relaxing rest of the evening!
