Happy Monday everyone! I hope ya’ll got your workweek off to a great start.
I got my workweek off to a great start with a little exercise action this morning: Jackie Warner’s Total Body Power Circuit from Exercise on Demand. I was really pleased with how much my muscles felt worked from when I did it on Friday, so I decided to give it another go. It’s a great way to spend 40 minutes!
Was kinda boring, since I ended up running late for work, but I promise it was delish!
A spotty banana…love ‘em this way!
A slice of my Cranberry Apple Bread (recipe to come soon, I promise)
Along with some Caramel Macchiato coffee, to-go. This breakfast was obviously pretty small, especially for just having completed an early morning workout. I ended up snacking on a granola bar and an apple mid-morning too…I was starving!
Craziness at the teacher’s desk!
Some carrots, celery, & grape tomatoes with hommus, 3/4 cup 1% cottage cheese mixed with a heaping tbsp. pumpkin butter, a not-quite-ripe-yet pear (grrr), and a milk chocolate adora disk.
Also kinda boring. But hey, it’s Monday. I also snacked on some Kashi crackers later in the afternoon while sitting and waiting (for over an hour) to get my oil changed in my car. I’ll tell ya, it was a good thing I had those babies in my bag!
Immediately after getting home, I set to work in the kitchen to do a little baking. I must say, I am beyond ecstatic with my new creation…
I still need to work up a final recipe, but I’ll give you guys a hint for now…leftover Halloween candy anyone???
While “doin’ my Betty Crocker thang,” I ended up squeezing in some dinner.
I quickly cooked up some egg whites mixed with a little dried basil, then topped ‘em off with some provolone cheese and tomato slices. Simple but delicious!
Along with my eggs I had 2 slices of my Trader Joe’s Cinnamon Raisin Swirl Bread, which I topped with a little light butter + pumpkin butter. Note to Self: Don’t try to toast things while tending to the oven…burnt toast is no good.
To be honest, today’s eats were pretty boring and I actually debated on not even sharing them with you all today. However, I decided it could serve as a good reminder for the fact that we can’t all have perfect and exciting meals everyday. Yes, some meals are going to be boring. Some may even turn out disgusting. It happens. But hey, it’s part of life, we deal with it, and we hope for something better the next day.
At least for, I have some delicious cookies out in my kitchen to make up for it.
Question for the Evening:
How much Halloween Candy did you consume yesterday (or today)? What’s your favorite Halloween candy??
For me, it’s gotta be 100 Grand! Soooo good!
