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!

At 3:30 I had my afternoon snack of Chobani and half a Blueberry Cliff Zbar that I mixed into the yogurt. Yum.

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. 😦

After dinner I enjoyed one of the last oatmeal cookies that Ben’s mom made for us. They were amazing. We enjoyed every single one of them!

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!
