Hey All – Happy Cinco De Mayo. After a week long hiatus, the blog is back. Things have been so busy around here that the blog was put on the back burner last week… sorry for no advanced notice on that one. I have been so busy at work, etc. that by the time I would get home from work, I would turn on my computer and work through the night until going to bed around midnight for the last week. But my project is DONE now, and I’m so happy to have my life back!
I did not take pictures today, but here is what I had – with some old photos when available:
Iced coffee with 1% milk and a scoop of protein powder (still one of my favorite morning drinks!)
Egg white sandwich – one egg white, english muffin, 1 piece of TJ’s string cheese.
Morning snack (didn’t get to have lunch until 2pm!) 110 calorie Pria bar – it saved my life today!
Lunch: one cup of soup from ABP, a piece of whole wheat bread, and a salad with spinach, red pepper, cucumbers, carrots and one hard boiled egg.
PM snack (I was working late tonight) one piece of Dove dark chocolate, six almonds, and a small handful of raisins.
Dinner: veggie burger wrap. Spinach wrap with a Morningstar veggie burger, spinach, red peppers, brocoli, TJ’s light Mexican cheese and one teaspoon of fat free sour cream.
Wow – that about wraps it up!
Over the past few days here are a few things I’ve had:
One day as I was running out of the house, I grabbed this Luna Sunrise bar…. I really loved it. It had a great flavor (Vanilla Almond) and had a really great layer of yogurt on the bottom of the bar.
One of my new afternoon snacks is a few (unsalted) walnuts and semi-sweet chocolate chips. Yum!
Red grapes are so great when you’re short on time and looking for a healthy snack. They are really filling too.
On each of my stressful days, I’ve had an apple either with lunch a morning or afternoon snack. Apples are great on the go foods!
On Saturday Ben and I had my mom over for the DERBY! It was a great day, before the Derby Ben and I went out to play tennis. For our first outing of the season, Ben and I played really well and had a lot of fun. For a late lunch / early dinner Ben brought out the grill and made everyone turkey burgers – it was our first grilling of the season, and my burger was fantastic but I couldn’t finish it! I had lettuce, tomatoes, pickles, on a whole wheat roll. It was awesome.
Below is my bowl of oatmeal / oat bran from Sunday… yum! It was sooo good. Here is what I started off with:
1/4 cup dry oats
1/4 cup oat bran
1 cup skim milk
Once the oats started cooking, I added one teaspoon of ground flax and one scoop of protein powder. Obviously the oats got quite large, and was definitely enough for two servings. I think i ended up eating maybe 3/4 of a cup of oats, and then I added a sprinkle of granola and a spoonful of peanut butter and a couple of dashes of cinnamon. I saved the second serving of oats for Monday morning. 🙂
Here is a hummus, lettuce and turkey wrap that I had for lunch last week – umm yeah, it was awesome!
OK, well I am going to do my best to get back to normal blog postings starting tomorrow. 🙂 I’ve missed writing and posting, so I’m glad to report that I’m back!
See ya’ll soon.
