Last night was my husbands night out. After reading some bedtime stories D asked if I would rock him again – of course I said yes. He told me that his belly was growling so we came downstairs and I made him a mini “mess” – vanilla yogurt, Graham Bumpers and a drizzle of honey. Then it was back up to his room. I rocked him to sleep and myself for that matter – mommy was tired too. When I finally woke up I decided to just get ready for bed and call it a day. I could use the rest because today is a cleaning day.
Here is the rundown of my eats.
Afternoon snack – 1/2 cup plain yogurt, 1/3 cup TJ’s High Fiber Twigs, a banana muffin, 1/2 tbsp almond butter and a drizzle of agave.
Dinner was an egg and cheese pita along with fresh salsa and veggies. I cooked broccoli, red pepper, summer squash and brussels sprouts in a pan that I sprayed with nonstick pray.
For dessert I had a banana muffin, 1/4 cup cottage cheese and an apple with lots of cinnamon.
I was out the door at 4:45, totally ready for a good workout. At the gym I did a 3 mile run, 5.5 mile bike ride on the Stationary Bike, then back on the Treadmill for another 3 mile run. It went by so fast and felt so great. I am really looking forward to being able to do a workout like that outside.
For breakfast today, which I am eating while typing away, is a hearty bowl of pumpkin oat bran. I started with the usual 1/2 cup oat bran cooked with water. Then I added 1/2 a cup pumpkin, 1/4 cup cottage cheese and a banana. Today I topped it with 1 tbsp almond butter and a tsp drizzle of agave. It is super!!
Time to finish my bowl of deliciousness and then I am out the door with my side-kick in tow. We are heading to my sister-in-law’s house to tackle some dust bunnies – they don’t stand a chance.
Have a great Friday.
