Well, I tried something new for breakfast this morning: Whole Grain Cream of Wheat. I added a little cinnamon and frozen blueberries to it just like I do my oatmeal… it did NOT look appetizing…
It wasn’t my favorite but it wasn’t bad, but I DEFINITELY prefer oatmeal. I also had a Morning Star Breakfast Sausage Link and some sliced strawberries in the car!
There’s not much to see from what I packed for school because it’s all packaged up!
Morning Snack = Cheerios
Lunch= Assembled at work: WW Tortilla with chopped tomatoes, garlic, onions, salt, pepper… a few slices of chicken… a slice of american cheese… and some spinach all zapped to melty goodness in the microwave. Side of leftover grilled veggies and Jello!
Afternoon Snack: Cucumbers with Tzatziki
After school I ran a few errands: stopped at the library and Walgreens. When I got home, it was snacktime! After my less than stellar experience with Cream of Wheat this morning, I returned to an old friend for pre-run fuel:
Oats with 1/2 TBS Unsweetened Cocoa powder, a little sweetener, and chopped frozen strawberries. Mmmm… dessert-y oatmeal is the best!
As soon as my tummy was done digesting the oats I hopped on the treadmill and did my 5 mile run. I could’ve probably run outside, but I was in the mood to mindlessly watch TV. Before I knew it, it was 7:00 and time for dinner so I made a quick dinner of a Birds-eye Steamfresh Complete Meal for Two (Grilled Chicken Marinara Flavor). All you have to do is throw it in the microwave to for 10 minutes… it’s perfect when I need dinner- FAST! I bulked it up with some extra pasta (and some extra onions in mine!). Of course I also had my garlic toast and spinach salad.
After dinner I worked for a little while on entering grades online and munched on a snack plate while I did…
Sliced apple with some cinnamon and AB. I also found some cute little 4 packs of creme cookies at Walgreens. They’re only 40 calories for a 4 pack of cookies (YAY for portion control!). The cookies ARE on the small side and they’re not the greatest things I’ve ever tasted, but for 40 calories they can scratch a minor cookie itch! I know what you’re thinking… there are only 3 cookies on the plate! Would you believe one of the cookies jumped into my mouth before I could snap it’s picture? 😉
Now I’m digging into a nice pre-shower/pre-bedtime treat: an ice cream cone!
It’s just not bedtime without some ice cream! 🙂 Good night!
