Monday, we meet again

Because I work soooo far away from where I live, breakfast is usually eaten in the car, meanwhile lunch and snack look like a Tupperware party.  I didn’t wake up quite as early as usual.  I like to run about 3 miles in the morning and then leave the evening to see if I feel like doing anything else.  But I knew that I should really go to Group Power tonight at the gym so I let myself sleep 40 more minutes.

Breakfast was a peach nanner smoothie.  Prior to the smoothie was a cup of coffee and again when I got to work.   The smoothie consisted of:

  • 1/2 large peach
  • 1/2 of yesterday’s small banana
  • 1/2 cup organic TJ’s french vanilla yogurt
  • 1/2 cup organic skim milk
  • 1 scoop of vanilla whey protein

and last but not least….spinach!

See how it changes the color to green?  BUT it does not change the flavor at all!  I get a big kick out of the fact that you can eat a bunch of vitamin rich spinach without even tasting it…not that spinach isn’t good.  I just don’t want to taste it in my smoothie.

On to lunch and snacks of the day.  This is what they looked like the night before.

Lunch and snacks

From left to right:

  • Mid-morning snack – cherry tomatoes, carrot, and part of a cuke with humus that somehow didn’t make it into the photo
  • Lunch – Amy’s Thai curry soup and the return of the whole wheat pita stuffed with humus, goat cheese, roasted red peppers, and more spinach
  • Afternoon Snack – Pink Lady apple from the farmer’s market and light string cheese

I was spooked at work today, which means that someone left a basket of candy on my desk for Halloween.  Now I have two days to spook someone else.  So of course I had to have just a bit of the candy.  I chose two mini candy bars  (Milky Way Dark and Twix).  Not the snack size,  the minis, which are smaller.  🙂  I co-led a meeting today so I just brought the basket a long and passed it around.  The group took about half of it.

Rushing home, as usual, to make it to the gym, I dropped off Rascal and grabbed a cashew cookie Larabar.  I took a picture of it with the iPhone, which I think I have left in the car.

Returning from the gym I wanted something quick because I was sooo hungry and not too far from bedtime.  I chose leftover black beans in two small corn tortillas with a little avocado, salsa, and a dollop of FF sour cream.

Black bean soft tacosI also roasted some Kale topped with sea salt.  I gotta admit, I didn’t really care for it.  It wasn’t gross or even bad.  It just wasn’t something I would choose to eat it again.  Dinner was on a small salad plate to give you an idea of the size.  I definitely needed a bigger plate.

Lastly for dessert, even though I probably didn’t need it, a somewhat strange combination of 1/3 of a piece of gingerbread nuked with raspberries and topped with two generous spoonfuls of Greek yogurt.

Yogurt messI tried to swirl it around to show what was in the entire ramekin, but it just kind of turned into a mess.  I’m off to make oats to eat on the ride tomorrow, pack my lunch, walk Rascal, and find my phone.  Goodnight!
