I might have lied last night when I made my list of 5 things I ate. I might have gotten hungry while signing my lease and stopped for froyo on my way home.
Cake batter again. How can I possibly say no to this little joy?
Muchos apologies for such bad car lighting & no camera flash.
This A.M. I searched high and low for my oats. Where did they go?!? Finally I found them in a random cupboard. PHEW. Heart attack averted.
Cold canteloupe on hot oats? Why, that’s new!
And let me tell you – it worked!
- 1/3 cup multigrain oats
- 1/3 cup almond milk + 1/3 cup water
- Peanut flour
- 1 egg whisked in
- Canteloupe (obviously)
- Nut butter!!!
I liked eating this in a mug. It made it more exciting.
No hospital job today, but I did nanny. Snacked on some almonds while we frolicked in the park.
I’m definitely taking advantage of nannying during meal times. Especially when they have food I like. 😉 Here we have a gardenburger on whole wheat with mustard & BBQ sauce.
And here we have a freshly baked chocolate chip cookie trying to imitate the gardenburger’s pose. Copycat.
Guess what I did after work? Well, after hitting up the bank and filling up my gas tank. ROAD TRIP!!! Yes, I’m calling a 30 minute drive to Target a road trip. It was exciting.
I picked up a few necessities (PB & jelly obvs), a few treats (new bathmat for my new bathroom!), and a few good deals ($5 plain T-shirts & some on-sale-Annie’s products!). While shopping I snacked on some popcorn, but when that didn’t cut it, I broke out the bar.
My last bar 😦 Although I’m not sad to see this particular one go – not a fan of apple cinnamon flavored things.
Oh and a Target drink. Lemonade light. Still full of artificial crap. But at least not a soda? Can I say that? I’m at least getting Vitamin C…maybe?
I barely made it through the door before I got to work on my peanut butter. I’m obsessed with flavored and sweetened PBs, but I can’t afford to constantly buy them. I’ve made my own cinnamon-raisin PB, and attempted my own honey peanut butter. This time I wanted some maple PB!
- 1 container plain peanut butter
- 2-4 Tbsp maple syrup (I used 4)
- Sweetener (optional – depending on how sweet you want it)
Mmmm I definitely ate my fair share. I feel like I’m scraping the cookie dough bowl!
Awesome. So now I have some maple peanut butter for $1.79 (Skippy was on sale at Target. Now that I think of it I should’ve bought 2 for that price) + the cost of the maple syrup (which was free since it was my old roommate’s she left in the fridge). Score.
I fully intended on running after this delicious pre-run fuel, but my ex/future roommate (what do I call her during this awkward transitional between houses period?) called inviting me to Taco Tuesday.
Um. Hello. My name is Taylor and I love food. And tacos. And a good deal ($1 each – what what!).
So much for a run. Sometimes you just have to go with the flow.
2 soft chicken tacos – partly devoured at this point in time. And fully devoured within seconds after taking this photo.
+ a few chips. And another soda. Oh dear goodness, I need to cut back on my soda consumption.
I’d say I can try and get up early to run tomorrow before my hospital orientation, but let’s face it – I’m still getting used to the fact of waking up around 7:00 a.m. to shower. Let alone waking up at 6:00 to run.
Baby steps. Baby steps.
Maybe after orientation at like 5:00. Perhaps.
And right now my left calf is non-stop twitching. Like those eyebrow/eyelash twiches….but in my leg. Interesting. Maybe my body is rejecting all the caffeine and soda today. Sorry body.
