Life in a Small Town

Posted Nov 13 2008 1:58pm

Hey guys!

I hope everyone is having a great Thursday!

I’m so frustrated right now because after work I went out searching for biker shorts for spin class…since all I have are running shorts! This is what frustrates me about small town life—there’s NO sports authority! I went to Target…which is tiny here and they didn’t have anything! And then I tried tj maxx and……nope, nothing!!!!  So….I went home empty handed. Target didn’t even have any cliff bars (except chocolate chip…) and I’m dying to try the gingerbread and pear strudel ones…every time I see them on a blog I salivate. But none here!! :(

Anyways! I’m trying not to be miss negative over here…I guess I’ll just wear my nike running shorts again to spin and next time I go home to Tampa hit up sports authority. This morning I started my busy day with another batch of pumpkin oats (same mix all week–1/2 cup oats, 1 cup silk, 1/3 cup pumpkin, 1 banana, 1 spoonful ab and pom. seeds):


When I got to work at 6:45 I had an iced coffee with skim milk:


And around 9:45, I ate the blueberry z-bar I had packed (I had the apple with my sandwich at lunch)


I LOVE blueberry z-bars!!!!! So happy I bought some in Chicago to take home with me!

Today for lunch I had my new favorite sandwich combo: 3 slices boar’s head turkey, 1 light laughing cow, 2 tbsp spicy hummus and bread and butter pickles on Arnold’s double protein bread:


Unfortunately, I had to eat it while running around at work. I didn’t have even 10 seconds to take a break today and don’t think I sat down for 8 1/2 hours! bah!

When I got home from my failed sports apparel trip, I was STARVING and toasted the other half of my homemade bagel from the other day and smeared 1 tbsp peanut butter and preserves on:


Yikes! Like I said, I didn’t get to sit down, take a break or do ANYTHING all day. I literally was sweating from running so much!!! But….it’s in the job description and is getting me ready for the next two days where I’ll be working a total of 20 hours. Both Friday and Saturday I work from noon until 10 pm, or whenever the last dessert orders come through.

Today I baked 375 rolls:


Plated 50 fruit tart slices:


And baked well over 100 brownies:


I also did a million other random things, getting everything ready for the weekend. I did find time to strain more yogurt though…but was a little disappointed! I brought in a huge 32 oz stoneyfield farm non-fat yogurt tub to strain and I only got about 1 cup of greek yogurt out of it….


It works, but honestly I don’t think its worth it if you want to have a ton of greek yogurt. I’ll probably go back to buying tubs of Oikos next week at the store. :(

Tonight I am going to another 6 pm spin class!!! Better get my gym clothes on NOW so I don’t back out!!
