Happy Friday! I hope you are ready to enjoy the weekend. I am really looking forward to some warmer weather. Today I cleaned then we did end up stopping at Stop & Shop for a few things that I needed to make a birthday cake for Charlie. He turns 39 on Sunday.
Let me go back to this morning. I ran 6 miles at the gym followed by a 15 minute walk to cool down. I came home, showered and then did a little experimenting for breakfast. I made a tea latte with 1% milk which I frothed with a little wire gadget that I bought for my hubs a while ago. It tasted delicious.
Then came the bowl of oat bran. I cooked the oat bran with a cup of decaf coffee then added some homemade chocolate sauce (2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder, 1 tsp agave and a little warm water) and some peanut butter. This was rather decadent but totally hit the spot.
After cleaning for 2 1/2 hours I ate a Kashi ROLL! bar – I was in desperate need of a refuel.
I got back from the store much later than planned thankfully the bar held me over pretty well. For lunch I started with a pita, hummus, tomato and spices. On the side some TJ’s tortilla chips.
Then I had Greek yogurt, Herat 2 Heart and strawberry preserves.
I still felt like I needed some more carby goodness so I opted for a Z Bar.
D and I baked Daddy his birthday cake (more on that tomorrow). That ended up taking up the rest of the afternoon. I didn’t stop to snack until it was almost dinner time so I just ate an apple with a little almond butter.
Dinner was a tortilla wrap topped with salad – lettuce, red pepper, yellow squash, zucchini, roasted unsalted peanuts, lemon juice and spices.
I also had Greek yogurt, Heart 2 Heart and cranberry apple butter.
A few hours later I needed a snack – I went for the yogurt combo for the 3rd time today.
I am probably going to head up to bed shortly. I really miss reading all your blogs – hopefully I can catch up over the weekend. I miss seeing what you all are up to. The new computer can’t come fast enough.
Anyone have anything exciting going on this weekend? Tomorrow D has karate, Sunday is Charlie’s b-day and Monday he is taking the day off. Not sure what the plan is yet to celebrate – he keeps talking about wanting to get BBQ.
Alrighty friends – enjoy your night. See you tomorrow.
