Hey All –
Happy hump day. Today was a bit of a struggle for me – I think around 2 o’clock this afternoon, my body realized the switch I was trying to pull – ie becoming a morning person! I was sooo tired this afternoon, and tonight I fell asleep on the couch. But back to a re-cap of the day…
This morning I enjoyed a glass of iced coffee with a twist! I added a scoop of Aria protein powder to my skim milk, coffee and ice. It was great – my Aria is vanilla flavored, and I could taste the flavor in my drink, and it was a pretty good addition.
Ben and I discussed coffee today. He prefers hot coffee, and I sometimes prefer iced coffee – not only in the summer. Here is weird reason for why I love iced coffee – I can drink it faster!
The bagel did the trick though – and kept me going until a little bit after noon for lunch. I think the extra protein from my Aria might have helped, too.
Not pictured, but consumed at lunch were carrot sticks. After lunch I snacked on 1/3 of a cup of Honey Nut Cheerios.
At 4:45 I had my afternoon snack on my way to getting my hair cut. I was so excited to try my first PURE Bar… I loved it!
This bar did remind me a lot of the Larabar – but the consistency was different, and the bar was thinner… When I eat Larabars it takes me forever to eat them, they are so dense and filling – I love taking my time eating them (sometimes I take an hour just munching on them). I was able to eat the Pure bar on the run – and it kept me full for three hours!! I love anything that will keep me going for that long. Click here to see the ingredients and nutritional information on my ChocChip Trail Mix bar. I highly recommend it!
I started dinner tonight around 7:30… I was tired by this point after a long day at work and running errands – and relaxing while getting my hair cut in Coolidge Corner at Michael Salon. I fell back on an old stand by – broccoli, brown rice and steamed chicken wantons. I had a bit of an accident with my dipping sauce – more of it ended up on my plate than I intended. Oh well!
DUring dinner Ben and I watched Out of Africa – what a great movie. If you have not seen it, I highly recommend watching it. Not only are Robert Redford and Meryl Streep amazing actors in the movie – but the film is beautiful. You will feel like you are in Africa while you are watching the movie. I loved it.
After dinner I was hungry in a little while 😦 and Ben and I both ate a peanut butter cookie from a bakery near my mom’s house. We took three cookies back with us from our weekend in Providence. The cookies were good!
OK, I am going to try and get a good night’ sleep so that I can wake up early and have another morning – with some oatmeal. 🙂
See ya’ll tomorrow!
