Made it through Monday!!

It’s only a four day week this week.  It’s only a four day week this week. 

That’s the mantra I used to get my tired butt out of bed this morning.  I stayed up WAY too late last night.  I’m just SO much more a night person, so it’s hard to make myself go to sleep because night time is when I’m most energized.  Oh well.  I made it through the day and only 3 more to go before a GLORIOUS 4 day weekend!  YAY!

Here’s what I grabbed for breakfast:

A couple pieces of WW toast one topped with Smucker’s Sugar Free Strawberry Jelly the other topped with Smucker’s Sugar Free Orange Marmalade.  I also had a Morning Star Breakfast Sausage Link for a little protein and a bag of strawberries and blackberries while I was in the car. 

The morning snack and lunch look REALLY small because I hadn’t planned to stay after today so there was no afternoon snack crowding the lunch bag (I, of course, ended up staying after in the end because I’m an overachiever… unfortunately).

I had cheerios to munch on in the morning.  Lunch was string cheese, a bag of veggies (cucumbers, celery, and bell peppers) and some garlic hummus and a new wrap.  I know it doesn’t look like much, but looks can be deceiving!  Inside that wrap is a flavor combination that rocked my face off at lunch.  I spread some homemade Almond Butter all over the wrap and topped it with some grape jelly (thinking PB&J sandwich wrap-style… right?).  Well, at work today they had the AC on (even though it SNOWED outside this morning) so I was freezing when I got ready to eat lunch and the idea of cold veggies and a cold wrap were not very appealing.  So I zapped the wrap in the microwave for a few seconds.  The AB and the jelly melded together into a sweet/salty/melty/gooey taste adventure that I MUST go on again soon!!  SO YUM!  Totally kicks PB&J sandwich butt!!

So after working all afternoon I came home and scarfed down some oats because I had a 5 mile run waiting for me.  Since I didn’t have any other afternoon snack, today’s oats had the addition of more AB along with what’s been the fave flavor lately (frozen wild blueberries, cinnamon, 1/2 smashed banana).

I took a quick half hour power nap while I let the oats settle and then hopped on the treadmill for 5 miles with Grey’s Anatomy.  Monday runs tend to go well because I take Sundays pretty much completely off from exercise so my body is always well rested and today was no exception.  After the run, I had to make dinner.

We had Shake ‘n’ Bake chicken and random leftovers including a frozen italian vegetables and fettuccine mix and the steamed veggie mix from last week (onions, asparagus, yellow squash, zucchini).  I also had a sweet potato, salad, and piece of garlic toast.  I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again… sweet potatoes are AWESOME!  I topped mine tonight with a few sprays of butter, salt, pepper, and cinnamon.  So good!

The plan is to spend the remainder of the night munching on these:

oranges

microwave cake ice cream

 

 

 

 

 

while I catch up on blogs and emails.  Then I plan to spend some quality time with a book before going to bed.  I figure the work and laundry will still be there tomorrow, and I want a break tonight!
