Good morning! Happy Wednesday! We all know what today is…
I DID, however, do fairly decent with the fruits, so that’s got to count for something, right?
8:30am – Breakfast
Heyyyy, looks a little familiar, right?
Nothin’ like a warm bowl of oats with killer toppings and a delicious mug ‘o joe to kick start your morning.
11:30am – Mid-Morning Snack / Mini Lunch #1
An egg white “poof” (made with my microwave egg cooker) with spinach, peppers, onions, and topped with pineapple salsa.
I ended up doing my workout mid-morning yesterday (in the form of this workout by Julie) and by the time I was finished and showered, I was definitely hungry…but not in the mood for a full lunch. Ya know what I mean?
The egg poof did the trick.
1:00pm – Mini Lunch #2
I really wanted a smoothie, but realized we had no frozen bananas. Smoothies are just not the same without a frozen banana, IMO. So I went for the next best thing.
I also enjoyed another piece of Zucchini Banana Chocolate Chip Bread topped with a little smear of PB.
FYI: I’m doing pretty good at tackling this loaf all on my own. I’m about two-thirds through.
2:30pm – Mid-Afternoon Coffee Break
Before heading in to work for the day, I had to make a stop at the post office, which just so happened to be down the road from an old favorite coffee shop of mine. I was feelin’ spunky so I ordered a Raspberry Mocha Iced Coffee.
I wasn’t a huge fan of the raspberry syrup turning my coffee pink, but it was still pretty tasty. The coffee stop was The Daily Grind, which is located in downtown Troy, and I honestly love how it’s located in such a historic part of town. So much history and so many old-school buildings.
I actually hadn’t been here in quite some time, mostly due to the fact that I fell in love with another local favorite. But unfortunately, since that place is still recovering from the fire, I had to branch out. I’ll definitely be back.
5:45pm – The Lamest “Dinner” EVER
I had every intention of putting together something for dinner before leaving for work yesterday afternoon. But then, before I realized it, it was already 10 minutes past the time I was planning to leave. Story of my life…
Basically, as I was walking through the kitchen and out the door, I attempted to grab anything that I could. That resulted in a Blueberry Bliss Luna Bar, an orange, and leftovers from the fridge. Curious what they are? Brace yourself, it’s exciting…
Yep, that is 3/4 of a piece of leftover chicken from Sunday’s Italian Pizza Bake. Nothing on it except a little salt and pepper, and I actually wound up eating this at work right out of the container…with my hands. Definitely at the top of the list for the lamest dinner ever. Thankfully, it did a fairly decent job of keeping me full for the rest of my shift at work, so at least I had that goin’ for me.
8:30pm – Evening Snack
Once I got home from work, I definitely wanted something else to eat…and then I spotted the kettle corn on the counter.
I snacked on a small handful of that, and then followed it up with another (my third for the day) slice of bread.
I made sure to heat it up for about 15 seconds in the microwave to get the chocolate nice and melty. Mmmm Mmmmm.
I don’t know…anyone else seeing a pattern with my atrocious looking “meals” after 5pm on Tuesdays? I think it’s about time I start doing a little better planning!
Question for the Morning:
What’s the lamest dinner you’ve had lately?
