I have to admit, it was very nice to not go deliver trays at the hospital this morning. I didn’t want to chance getting someone sick so I cancelled. And oh boy was it amazing to wake up, slip on my workout clothes, and go get in my strength training first thing on a Saturday morning!
When I got back in the door I was hungry! Trying to get through my Greek yogurt I dished out a cup and topped it with some thawed frozen strawberries, 1/4 cup raw oats, ground flax, a spoonful of sunflower seed butter, and a pinch of craisins. Honestly, yogurt bowls just aren’t doing it for me anymore! I’m soo into cereal right now. =P This just has so much more protein though!
I hustled my walk to work and damn was it nice out! 55 degrees! I can’t wait for spring. When I got to work I headed into Starbucks and nabbed my doppio espresso, one raw sugar, 3” hot water, splash of half and half, and a dash of nutmeg. (I’m so giddy! My Nespresso machine arrives Monday!)
Work went well and by noon I was hungry again. I ate half of my spinach topped with the last of the Triple Grain Waldorf salad and white beans along with a hard boiled egg. I could have eaten the whole thing but I was satisfied so why force myself to be full? I ended up eating the other half when I got home from work to stave off pre-dinner snacking.
Later at work though I ate a tangelo and a mini White Reese’s Egg. I know, I know. I was going to ignore it in the candy drawer but….the egg shaped Reese’s are the best and I’d never see a white chocolate one before! I savored every bite.
Tonight was somewhat of a celebration due to the fact we finally received the big check from our renter’s insurance company due to our Christmas Day theft. Chase and I were super excited! We had to hound the company every week since they didn’t seem to be doing anything with our claim for two months. (Ignore my crazy hair, I had just been rained on..)
To celebrate (after grocery shopping at Costco), we picked up Pen Thai takeout! I steamed yellow squash and red bell pepper and piled my favorite pad sew eew with tofu on top. I ended up eating all of the pad sew eew but I at least waited an hour in between servings to see if I was still hungry. I also had half a glass of Ménage a Trios red wine.
My hot drink for tonight: no sugar added hot cocoa.
