Well, it’s Monday again.
And that’s pretty much all I have to say about that (she types after spending a full minute wondering what she could possibly write).
I’m pretty worn out today, probably because I couldn’t fall asleep last night after staying up and sleeping in late all weekend. It’s to be expected. Not that that makes it any easier to keep my eyes open
I had another go at my Berry Blend Oats this morning. I can’t get enough of this new trail mix – it has everything in it that I like and is almost as good as Trader Joe’s Nutz Over Raspberries mix, and since I can find this one at my grocery store (TJ’s is an extra 20-minute drive), I think I’ll save the gas money!
I’ve been relying heavily on the instant oatmeal packets since I started work. I miss the stove top oats, but it’s just so much faster to microwave when every minute counts
Add a mug to top off the meal…
SNACK + LUNCH
Breakfast lasted me quite a while, though not as long as the old fashioned oats. I had a banana at about 10:30 this morning.
Lunch today was another catered meal because of a team meeting. We had a boxed lunch from Corner Bakery, which are all over Chicago. I had the Poblano Fresco on Poblano Cheese Bread, which wasn’t all that great, unfortunately. I also ate a few potato chips and 1/2 of an oatmeal raisin cookie.
Healthy, I know.
So what have I learned? Well, I’m not a fan of catered lunches. It’s hard because it’s free food and they are providing it for you, which is really nice. But it’s not exactly what I want, either (hint: click the link so see what I crave on a regular basis). So, if the question applies:
What do you do to get what you want out of catered lunches?
I brought a newbie (for me, anyway) to work as an afternoon snack today: a Luna Mini bar! I bought a box of three flavors when I went to Target over the weekend. Today I had the Caramel Nut Brownie.
The verdict? For 80 calories, 2.5 grams of fat, 11grams of carbs and 4 grams of protein – they’re pretty good. They definitely have nothing on the Clif ZBaRs, but since they are small and portable, I’ll keep ’em around. I still have two other flavors to try, so who knows?
Don’t expect me to become a “Luna”tic anytime soon though 😉
It was a fiesta at my place tonight Bobby made some chicken and shrimp fajitas with veggies and black beans!
I had mine on a Wrap-Itz Flatout tortilla with chicken, shrimp, spinach, red pepper, tomato, and reduced fat Mexican cheese! With black beans on the side, it made for a super filling meal!
I snagged some extra chicken, shrimp, and black beans after eating what’s pictured 😉
Off to watch Jeopardy, then hit the sack for (hopefully!) a better night’s rest!
