Happy Hump Day!
I am so glad we are more than halfway through the work week. Anyone else super tired today or was it just me?
I had a pretty boring day of eats today. I wasn’t hungry for breakfast this morning which honestly does not happen to me, ever. I ate an energy bite which is made of dates, almonds, peanuts, cocoa powder, and Craisins (I’ll be getting you this recipe eventually) and headed out the door with my coffee. I did get an appetite a couple of hours later and had packed some dry cereal and a clementine.
Lunch was the exact same as yesterday. I told you it was boring! Whole wheat tortilla with natural peanut butter, carrots, apple, banana, and another energy bite. I actually went home for lunch and walked on the treadmill for twenty minutes to try to wake myself up/warm myself up. Unfortunately it didn’t do either but I at least got a little activity in! I generally like to do my workouts before work in the morning but just couldn’t get myself out of bed after a bad night of sleep.
I snacked on some Snyder’s Natural Potato Chips while we reheated some leftover black bean mushroom chili (recipe revised slightly from this recipe from eatingwell.com). We topped it with shredder cheddar cheese and cilantro and called it a dinner! I also had a side of broccoli with some asian sesame dressing.
Then for dessert….
Micky D’s for some vanilla soft-serve! The snow and freezing cold weather won’t stop us from our ice cream. It was the best thing I ate all day! The chili was actually really good too. I will have to get you that recipe too!
A brief introduction to my wonderful family
Left to right: Brother Scott, Mom Kathy, Me, Dad Tom, Brother Jeff, and Brother Kevin
I am the baby girl of the family with three older brothers. I love my family like crazy. They mean the world to me. You’ll be hearing about them more in the future, just wanted to give you a quick intro. =)
Hope you all had a great day. Off to get a couple of things done around the house! Good night!
