I promise that my post title (click the link!) will make sense eventually.
Thanks to everyone for the well wishes on the Emmy submission. If we end up getting a nomination, I will find a way to post the video for everyone to view! Also, I’d like to welcome all the new readers and commenters I’ve had stop by these past couple of days. It’s nice to “meet” you, I’m glad you like the blog and I hope that you come back again soon!
I slept in until 8:30 this morning, which felt nice. I think I’ve been extra tired this week for some reason because I can never seem to wake up at the time I originally set my alarm for. Perhaps it’s because I’m reading late into the night…must stop obsessing over Breaking Dawn. Anyway, once I woke up I made myself a breakfast that ended up being bigger and more filling than I initially anticipated. It held me all the way until 1:30! I began with a bowl filled with 3/4 cup Kashi Heart to Heart, 3/4 cup Peanut Butter Puffins and 1/2 large sliced banana with unsweetened chocolate almond milk.
On the side, I had a container of Fage filled with a handful of more Kashi Heart to Heart and 1 tbsp. of Barney Butter.
By the way, glad to know that you all approve of and/or didn’t even notice my carpet pictures I started out the morning with a new placemat I got for Christmas, but slowly worked some carpet back in for your viewing pleasure. LOL. That just sounds ridiculous!
I puttered around for a bit, checking email and blogs, and eventually got around to making a mug of Coffee Cocoa. After I drank this, I was too full.
I spent the entire morning in class learning about the differences between men and women in the workforce and the psychological concepts of race. I like my classes so far! Toward the end of my last class, I finally was hungry enough to break out a snack. I tried my Jocalat Chocolate Hazelnut bar, which I’ve had forever, but was inspired to eat after reading Kristie’s post.
It was alright. Definitely not my favorite flavor, but not bad. It’s so funny how Larabars are so varied to me in terms of whether I like them or not. There are basically two extremes.
When I got home for class, I made a “second lunch” to complement the bar.
I used 1 cup spinach, 2 oz. turkey and 2 tbsp. roasted garlic hummus. It was all topped with 1 tbsp. of Asian vinaigrette. It was v. salty, but also v. delicious! I gulped down a lot of water afterward.
Plus my daily dose of antioxidants 😉 Hey, anything to make me healthier!
After lunch, Bobby and I watched an episode of Lost on DVD. Then it was time for the gym! Today I did a step machine and stationary bike workout, both of which have no been added to the Workouts tab:
I was going to do abs at the gym, but it was packed! So I came home and made myself dinner instead Good compromise! The star of the show tonight was a gigantic sweet potato. I microwaved it on high for 5 minutes and then topped it with 1 tbsp. Promise and 1 tsp. brown sugar.
I also tried a new tomato soup tonight. It had reduced sodium:
I heated up a little over a cup. It was meh. Definitely not as good as Amy’s. But then again, nothing is as good as Amy’s. It was basically just a broth with no texture at all.
To spruce it up, I ended up adding these Kashi crackers for some crunch.
The sweet potato was surprisingly filling for a “main dish.” I’d never thought of it in that way before. I was going to call it a night, but a certain dessert was calling my name again…
No chocolate this time, but it was still just as good! I enjoyed this while watching Grey’s Anatomy. What do you think of McSteamy and Little Grey?
Who’s your favorite Winnie the Pooh character?
Shannon, I’m looking at you on this one TTFN! Tigger is my mom’s favorite, too. But my favorite is undoubtedly Pooh Bear. My first AOL screen name (back in the day when AOL was the coolest thing on the planet) was EPPOOHBEAR (EP = Eden Prairie, my hometown).
