So this morning when I was at the gym I got to see a friend of mine who has not been there for a while. We try to get our boys together to play but since her son has started going to school 3 days a week we have not been able to get together as much. The last time we got together for a girls night was back is February – we are such busy mommies. She hit me with some pretty heavy news – she has cancer. It is thyroid cancer which I guess has a really good success rate. She will be having surgery in 3 weeks and hoping to be back to normal in a few months. Her attitude is so positive. I guess when you have kids it is important to stay calm and collected when something like this happens in order to help your loves ones cope better. I could not stress to her enough how willing I am to help her out with anything she needs. She is such a great friend – please keep her in your prayers.
Ok here are the eats for the rest of my day. More yumminess I have to say.
D and I hit up the park again – the place really is the bomb and we always have a blast.
When we got home I had some plain Greek yogurt with cinnamon and Chocolate PB2. I actually prefer the original PB2 but I only have a teeny bit of the Chocolate left from the samples that I was sent. I might just have to break down and purchase a container. I also had a KeeRunch! bar. It was good but after having so many other stellar bars lately it just did not stand up to their greatness.
I bet you could have guessed what dinner was – a salad. The fixings – lettuce, red pepper, salsa, sweet potato, hummus and cottage cheese. I thought that I had a can of black beans in my cabinet but sadly I did not. I was hoping to have them for the protein in this salad so instead I opted for cottage cheese. It is, of course, one of my favorite foods but I was trying to add some variety. The salad was still delicious and I did manage to get my protein.
I had 2 Corn Thins with SunButter one is pictured because I actually went back and made another because I still needed a little something something when I was finished. I also had a brown rice cake with a little home made raw sunflower seed butter. I have to admit the Sunbutter blows my stuff away. Mine is only so-so but the Sunbutter brand is AWESOME. My hubs eats it every day for lunch and he has for like 4 years straight. This time he went for the crunchy variety which is as you can see full of chunky goodies.
For dessert I had a teeny bit of Greek yogurt and the last of my Cupola Cookies. I added a little swirl of Raw Almond butter – as if I hadn’t already had enough buttery goodness. I love nut/seed butters so the more the merrier.
I am off to call my Mom. I miss her and I just really need to hear her voice.
Have a great night. See you tomorrow.
