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

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!

Happy Thursday Open-mouthed smile  My week is finally over –short work weeks are ah-mazing!

I’m still running on fumes today due to severe lack of sleep.  We were heading home late last night from our friends house and hit a dead. stop in traffic.  I still have no idea what happened, but during the hour we sat with our car shut off, we saw about 3 fire trucks, 2 ambulances, and probably over 8 cop cars whizzing by.  They ended up waaay head of us so we couldn’t see anything, but I just hope everything’s okay Sad smile.  On top of getting home way later than expected, our little “attic critters” were roaming around last night again.  Scott kept on waking up, turning the lights on and off, checking to see where the noise was coming from, and ended up brining a fan from the basement to “drown out the scratching noises”…

Basically.. I didn’t sleep very well last night Sad smile.

This morning I slept in an extra half hour, didn’t go to the early morning spin class because I was planning on going over lunch.  I had a whole wheat tortilla, 2 eggs, spinach, ricotta cheese, salsa, and an orange for breakfast.

As soon as I got to work I ended up over at one of our test facilities with a coworker… aka… I didn’t get back to work until after noon.  During that time, I quickly munched on a Chocolate Chunk Luna Bar to get me through the first few hours.

But.. I missed the next spin class because we got back so late Sad smile.  I HATE days like this because sometimes you just really need the stress relief from exercise.

Around 12:30 I nuked a Kashi Black Bean Mango frozen dinner (boo), had an apple and water, and grabbed the last cracker thin crust slice of pizza leftover from a “Lunch and Learn” the electrical engineers had Winking smile

And..  I actually didn’t eat the apple – I saved that for a later snack because I knew we were heading back to our lab for the afternoon. 

During more testing, I had the apple with a packet of almond butter Winking smile

Blarg on missing spin class today Sad smile  I’ve got tomorrow off so at least I’ll have some time to get in a good workout then!  I’ve got a brand new workout planned so I’m stoked to give it a shot!

Nothing up on my plate for tonight (phew)!  The only thing I need to do before Saturday is get some Harry Potter candy for a movie marathon a friend and I are planning.  I’m a horrible HP nerd and I’m hoping to rewatch ALL the movies before the last one comes out in a few weeks Open-mouthed smile
