To make up for my lack of waffles on Waffle Wednesday, I had brought some along to work for Thursday’s breakfast! (Note: I’ve been bringing breakfast with me to work when I work at 7 am because I tend to “nap” while there so early & the girl is still sleeping. Then I’ll eat when I wake up!)
Kashi Strawberry flax waffles topped with sliced bananas (there were also ‘naners on top of the bottom waffles) and peanut butter. Drizzled with some real maple syrup I found in their fridge!
Mmmm tasty 🙂
Then it was a trip to the public library, which I love doing because then I get internet which equals blog reading! And facebook stalking browsing. 😀 All settled into my cozy cubicle:
Camera ate my picture 😦 Imagine a computer, iced Peet’s coffee & a Cooking Light magazine.
I’m sorry, but Peet’s coffee is 100x better than Starbucks. Yum iced (decaf) coffee! I also dug into a container of blueberries while there.
Lunchie was another turkey + hummus + BBQ sauce + spinach & tomato wrap on my last 7 grain flax Rudi’s wrap. You can tell it was my last (aka a bit dry) because it completely cracked open when I rolled it. Still tasty though!
And buttloads of fruit (obvi).
I also helped myself to a slice of this white sauce pineapple pizza (I picked off/ripped around the ham):
And a bunch of cherries:
I hit up the gym after work where I did the longest run in a long time. I repeated this twice:
- 1.5 miles at 6.0 mph
- Walk 3 minutes
- 1.5 miles at 6.2 mph
- Walk 3 minutes
- 1 mile at 6.4 mph
- .75 miles cool down
Total: 4 miles running, 1.2 miles walking
It felt okay, but my knee has definitely been stiff and sore since then.
For dinner I wanted to use up everything left in my fridge. I had some brie cheese left, vegetable chili, avocado, sour cream, and lettuce mix. The solution? Brie cheese nachos! Brie cheese melted over sweet potato chips with guacamole, sour cream & chili on top.
I topped the rest of my chili on my spinach salad.
Oh wow. This was amazing. I’ve been lovin’ all my brie creations this week – SOOO good!
Food for Life sprouted seed & grain English muffin. Half topped with Naturally More & banana, half topped with cream cheese/strawberry jam mixture:
I just wanted to proclaim again how chewy and dense these English muffins are!
I then took the girl I nanny bowling!! I rocked my first game – with 3 spares and 2 strikes (good for me!). The second game – ehhhh not so much. Sorry for the blurry action shot, but she’s not such a great photographer 😉
I then had to stop by the beach farm again for more apricots. I was out, and wanted to bring some home! 🙂 We also grabbed a fresh corn on the cob while there. My fave!
I scarfed mine down!
For lunch, I put together a salad mix of lettuce, craisins, tomato, Newman’s Own Sesame dressing, some guac & blueberries (I may or may not have gone through a whole 11 oz container of blueberries that morning).
And a Kashi veggie sandwich pocket (with some more guac)
For the last few bites I stuffed some BBQ sauce inside. It makes anything better 😉
I then hit the road home!! My caffeine choice for the drive:
Splenda schmlenda. Whatever…I still have fake sweeteners in moderation.
When I got home, my mommy had one of my favorite dinners ready for me – BBQ turkey meatloaf!! It is the only meatloaf I like, and it soooo simple!
- Ground turkey
- About 1 cup BBQ sauce
Mix!! Then I top it with tons of ketchup 🙂 Sorry, no picture – I downed literally half the loaf last night! haha.
Today my sis and I took BART to the Giant’s game!! It was a beautiful day – and a great game! GO GIANTS!
Our tickets were also good towards $5 of food, so we ended up buying lunch at the park. Pac Bell has awesome food – besides the normal hot dog & burgers (including veggie, turkey & chicken burgers), they had tacos, nachos, Caribbean food, a Boudini stand (with clam chowder bread bowls), lots of fish and crab dishes, sausages, mushroom burgers, etc. There was even a wine stand:
And a Safeway stand that sold sushi!
It was a tough decision (obvi!), but I decided on the Caribbean stand and got a bowl of jerk chicken, black beans, white rice, pineapple cole-slaw & smothered it in BBQ sauce.
And what game would be complete without Gilroy garlic fries? My sister got them with her burger & we shared 🙂 YUM. Giants won 4-2!! Go G’s!
Eats the rest of the day were mundane and munchy (fruit, leftover meatloaf, small salad, another 11-oz blueberry container, broccoli, few bites of french bread…blah blah). That’s one thing that’s hard about being home – my family is always munching on food (like tonight when they had a loaf out and they were just ripping pieces off), and it’s tempting for me to join in. Not to mention all the boxes of cereal in the cupboard (like Lucky Charms!) that I am constantly picking out of!
Sorry for the long (if pointless) recap post. With no scheduled workout for the past couple days, I know I definitely need to fit something in tomorrow morning. Then we’re celebrating my sister & Nana’s birthday with the family! I hope you all are having a wonderful weekend! 😀
Here’s another yogurt giveaway!!
