Hi, all! How’ve you been on this fine hump day? I can’t believe it’s here already! Guess that’s what having Mondays off does. I’ll take it! I finally made a great bowl of overnight oats yesterday! I think the trick for me is to keep it simple….not too many flavours.
1/2 cup oats
1 cup USAB
vanilla chai powder
1 tbsp chia seeds
mocha hazelnut sprinkles
Work was pretty busy, but didn’t keep me from getting my morning snack in!
This was AWESOME! Totally worth the $3 I paid for it. The scent was a deep coffee one and it reminded me of chocolate covered espresso beans. I love those! I’d buy this again in a heartbeat!
I brought my laptop to work again yesterday to do the Shred DVD. Two of my co workers joined in on the fun again! This is turning into a bi-weekly event that I look forward to. I think they do, too!
Lunch was a huge salad. You can see the purple carrots much better this time. I dressed it with a little Renee’s Caesar parm dressing:
This lunch stretched out so long that I didn’t eat my afternoon fruit! I did, however, make myself an iced coffee:
While at Starbucks last Friday night I taste tested their new line of Via Iced coffee and fell in love. They were selling the packages for a dollar off so I snapped one up!
The single serve packets are to be mixed with 2 cups of water and are lightly sweetened. I would normally take a little “milk” in my iced coffee but find that I don’t need it with this. The only downside to drinking this was that it was a little too close to dinner and ruined my appetite. DD and I had hair appointments so I knew I needed to eat something. I’m one of those lucky people who gets heartburn if I let myself get too hungry. I toasted an English muffin, spread some LC cheese, egg whites and hot sauce on top and called it dinner.
Sad looking, but my go-to meal none the less. You might even see it again today! ;) It was past 8pm when we got home and DS somehow roped me into playing some Wii with him. Playing with my little man is humorous because as soon as he starts to lose we have to switch games. He thinks he’s being pretty suave, too by telling me that he thinks I was having “trouble” with that one. HA!
I woke to a bright, sunny morning and spend a little too much time relishing that in bed. Needless to say, a quick breakfast was needed so I could get out the door!
All Bran Buds and Nature’s Path optimum cranberry ginger. This box is done now. I might have shed a tear or 2.
I was talked into making a doctors appointment by my boss today because I’ve had a bothersome cough for the past couple of weeks. Guess she got tired of listening to me! On the way to the office I ate a Kardea bar:
Yum! One more to go before review time. In the meantime, what is your favourite Kardea bar??
So, it turns out I have the same type of asthma as DS. I can’t say I’m really surprised because I kinda had a feeling she would say that. Basically, for the both of us, it’s allergy induced. DS has a lot of trouble with his breathing (and coughing) in the spring when all the pollen is out and in the fall when the leaves fall and the mould it out and about. Now, I’ve know for a good 10yrs that I’ve got allergies to grass, ragweed, birch tree pollen, cats and dust. Just like lots of other people out there. In all those years I can honestly say that these allergies have never bothered me. To the point where I didn’t even like to admit to having them after seeing my Dad and brother suffer with horrible symptoms over the years. Well, I guess ragweed is in full swing and this is the year that I’ve started to react to it. I walked out of there with a prescription for the exact same 2 inhalers as DS has. Bummer. Even more humbling is that now I know what my poor child has been going through his whole life. Sheesh!
No gym as my appointment was over the noon hour. When I got back to my desk I pulled out the tuna salad I had packed.
I’ve had these before and they’re pretty decent in a pinch. This was part of my efforts to clean the pantry out.
It was a tad spicy, but nothing I can’t handle. :) We got SUPER busy at work to the point where I left an hour late. That doesn’t happen often, but we had some balancing issues that needed to be taken care of before we could do our transfer. Then I spent a 1/2 hour waiting for my prescription to be filled. I was HUNGRY by the time I got home and just wanted to stuff my face. Enter eggs again.
Two slices of WW bread, toasted, hummus and farm fresh easy over eggs. Then I had a scoop (or 2) of ice cream:
This is a surprise flavour that I will be sharing at the beginning of next week.
Weeellll….I’ve got a few things to take care of before I tune into SYTYCD at 8. Hope nobody gets hurt this week!!
