Has everyone been having a fabulous hump day? Mine’s been a dandy, thanks! Got the kids off to another successful day at school, had some tasty eats, spent some downtime with the new Prevention mag…..can’t ask for (much) more.
1 cup water
1/3 cup PC 5 Grain cereal
I’m pretty sure that walnuts are my favourite nut. The have such a great crunch and mild flavour. What is your favourite nut?
Payrolls were pretty hectic all morning. We had some balancing issues that really had us twisting our brains. We got it all sorted out…always do…and the day moved on. This here was the perfect brain food for our issues;
Chocolate brownie….do I really need to elaborate? Thought not! :D
My hips are achy today from all those super fab lunges and squats I did yesterday so I was thrilled to see Mr. Elliptical waiting for me today! I also worked on my arms and back. Can’t tell you the exercises I did because I have no clue what they’re called, so lets just say I was sporting some serious Jell-O arms when I was done!

I ate a tomato & bean salad for lunch today. Hence the title of this post! :) Here’s the bean mix I used today;
Like the last can I tried, these babies were marinating in a dressing. I had chopped up 5 Roma tomatoes from the garden and used a fork to scoop the beans out of the can.
There was plenty of flava left on them so that I didn’t need to add anything else.
Super tasty! I chased this with the last 1/4 of amazing Clif Bar that I saved.
The afternoon was as slow as the morning was fast. Ugh….I hit a major wall by 3:30 and had to get up and go for a walk to shake the sleepies off. When I returned to my desk I munched on some crisp grapes;
Dinner tonight was turkey burgers. YUM! Mine went on top of an Arnold Thin with mayo, honey mustard, relish, lettuce, tomato and pepper jack cheese. I chopped up one of the garden zucchini’s and cooked it up in a large skillet with some avocado oil, S & P. This was a nice change up to the grilled zuke’s we’ve been eaten for the past little while. Behold a delicious meal….
To finish off I capped 3 mini blueberry muffins with some macadamia nut butter. These were enjoyed with a side of cat. :D
Pepper is looking so innocent here, but he was really trying to lick my nut butter off! Devil cat! Well, my dears, I’m off to make lunches and plough through the gazillion pieces of paper that came home from school today. Yikes! Have a great night, all…
