Hey dudes! Hope everyone had a good Monday – fortunately, mine flew by fast and was full of good eats. Unfortunately, like I predicted, I was DRAGGING this morning from my lack of sleep Saturday night (but again, all for a good cause). First on the agenda this morning? A cup of coffee with skim milk and then a coconut banana breakfast cookie (recipe here)!
Then I got to work and had ANOTHER mug of coffee. Not going to lie, it was a definitely 3-4 cup morning!
For lunch, I really wanted to use up the rest of the vegetarian refried beans I still had in the fridge. So I took about 1/2 cup beans, mixed in 1/4 cup salsa and dipped in with my new TJ’s Rice & Bean Chips with Adzuki Beans. It was good! The chips were light and airy while at the same time hearty and yummy. They were quite pretty too! Along with a Pecan Pie Larabar – it was a quick and easy lunch!
I took a good, leisurely 30 minute walk at lunch (great for the mental sanity!). Work was really slow, then all of a sudden, I had a million things to do! Before I knew it, it was 3pm: SNACKTIME. I busted out my new Stonyfield Farms (one of my Favorites!) Organic YoCalcium yogurt in Wild Berry. OMG…the Wild Berry was delish! Especially with blackberries, strawberries and the Cascadian Farms granola!
The rest of the day flew by fast, which is so odd because Mondays usually drag on forever! Woowoo! It was a gorgeous day out today, so I am posting this early so I can go get a walk/run/something outside. I just ate some leftovers of the Italian Roasted Eggplant Tomato Penne from last night, along with a yam (poked & nuked in the microwave for 5 minutes) with a bit of butter and a hefty sprinkle of cinnamon.
Most likely, the night will go like this: workout, post-workout snack, cup of tea, shower, a bit of organizing and then off to bed as EARLY as I can. This gal has got some sleep to catch up on!
