Woohoo for one more day! Open-mouthed smile

We were out quite late last night at our friends apartment, but I still got up this morning for an earlier spin class. It was supposed to be around 100 degrees this afternoon and I knew I wasn’t going to feel up to spinning in the dead heat!  I tend to get more heat exhaustion than actual workout…

I had a banana and half a Honey Graham Clif Z bar on the way to class.

On my way out of the gym I grabbed a small nonfat latte (protein!… + caffeine Winking smile). After I got to work I toasted a whole wheat bagel thin and spread a packet of Justin’s Classic Peanut Butter on it. I still ❤ Melty Peanut Butter. *swoon*

My mid morning snack was a bar that I got from the break room – someone left about 15 of these on the table this morning.

brownie bar

A Fiber One Chocolate Fudge Brownie bar. Tasty, but definitely a “dessert” as far as considering it to be food. Fail having no time to properly eat because of working in an office!

Up on the menu today was an FBS – Amy’s Light in Sodium Vegetable Lasagna, a nectarine, sugar snaps, water, and some stone ground crackers (as well as some crackers and snow peas I downed while waiting for the thing to microwave!).  An FBS is what my co-workers have deemed the dreaded frozen dinner… aka the “Frozen Block of Sh*&” Smile

lunch

Not too much later I dug into a Brown Cow Vanilla Greek Yogurt, Love Grown Granola, and the other half of this morning’s Clif bar

yogurt

After two meetings I had a mini  EVOL Bean and Cheddar Burrito and.. another one of the Fiber One Chocolate Bars Sad smile.  Those two bars alone were 40% of my daily Fiber value… (aka… my stomach is going to kill me later!)  My snacking PEAKED today and I completely ran out of munchies.  I definitely need to restock the emergency desk stash for next week!

I had to leave a smidge early today – we’ve got a window blind company coming to give us an estimate on some shutters.  I’ll be dealing with that tonight for a few hours.  But, we’re hoping to prep another room in the house so we can paint it this weekend Smile.  Things are slowly coming together, but we still have another 3 weeks before we get our new back door installed Sad smile.  More waiting!

 

Have a great night!

Scott said earlier this week that he WANTS to like oatmeal.. he just doesn’t Sad smile.  BUT, I’m going to be hammering this stuff down him in different ways over the next few weeks to come up with something he likes.  Today was probably a 5/10 on the sole reason he just doesn’t. like. oats. Surprised smile

oatmeal

Oatmeal for TWO!

1 cup rolled oats, 1 cup water, 1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk, 1/2 tsp vanilla, 1 tsp cinnamon, 1 diced apple, 2T raisins, 2 eggs (beaten in a separate bowl)

Boil water and then add in oats.  Let cook for ~3-5 minutes, then add in almond milk, apple chunks, raisins, vanilla, and cinnamon.  Continue to cook on medium to low heat stirring frequently to prevent burning.  In the last 2-3 minutes, stir in the beaten eggs.  This should be pretty darn thick and creamy by the time it’s done Open-mouthed smile.

Serve and top with whatever you want!  I used ~1-2T Love Grown Foods Granola, ~1T Peanut Butter, ~1 tsp Agave Nectar, sprinkle of cinnamon

I’ve got high hopes he’ll like this stuff one day.  It beats him eating Honey Nut Cheerios or a bagel and cream cheese every morning. 

As for work… STUPID busy today so I’ve got a short post for ya Smile…. in picture form!
