Cool as ice!

Well, I'm tired!!!! That's what I get for hanging out with the VERY SCARY GingerDEAD Man last night. I'm a fan of movies that are SO BAD they somehow magically become GOOD! This one is up there on the BAD/GOOD scale for sure! Imagine a pudgy, Barbie sized, evil, murdering and possessed gingerbread man with a knife and a BAD attitude. Brilliant right? HA! The original plan was to watch parts 1 & 2 but NO WAY was I capable of staying for the second one. The first one didn't end until midnight. EEK! I was so tired I passed out during the ride home. Good thing I didn't drive! I may just have to rent part 2 so I can finish the movie in ALL it's horrendous splendor!


I woke up late (shocker) and ran around the house like a maniac all morning. Of course, I ran a bit late for work. Nothing major. I quickly drank (if only I could inject directly into the vein) a huge cup of coffee and enjoyed a delicious bowl of PB2 oats.

BREAKFAST! (meal #1) at 9:00am.
  • 1/2 cup old fashioned oats
  • 1/4 cup wheat bran
  • 1 tbs ground flax
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • tons of cinnamon
  • Splenda to taste
  • 2 tbs PB2 (love)


Oh my precious PB2. You give me all the joys of peanut butter with none of the caloric guilt. I wuv you!

Work was quiet today but it felt like something was a brewin. A storm of paperwork perhaps? An attack of emails? Endless phone calls? Whatever it was, I felt like I was in an old Western movie. Waiting, patiently for the posse to ride into town so I can take em down!


POW-POW!

LUNCH! (meal #2) at 12:00pm

Another salad concoction, minus the cottage cheese this time. I opted for my favorite (highly addictive) veggie burger instead.
  • Sweet butter lettuce
  • Baby spinach leaves
  • Cannellini beans
  • Cherry tomatoes
  • Bread & butter pickles
  • Spicy Black Bean Burger (Morning Star Farms brand)
  • Spray butter drizzle


It took me a solid 30 minutes to finish this plate. I kept pausing to respond to emails and get some work done. POW-POW! TAKE THAT!

For our break today we raided Aldi and I loaded up on some fresh veggies. I love that place! I picked up like 6 pounds of broccoli, a head of cauliflower, 2 green peppers, cherry tomatoes, oats, 2 avocado, mushrooms, a bag of tangelos, a bag of red onions, a huge bag of spinach and some gum for $16. IN-SANE!

SNACK (meal #4) at 4:00pm.
  • 4oz cup of 0% plain Oikos
  • TON of cinnamon
  • 1 packet Splenda
  • red Bartlett pear, diced
  • handful of red grapes
  • sprinkle of Kaia Foods cacao bliss granola


Combine thoroughly to make magic in a bowl! YUM!

After work we hustled to the gym for biceps, triceps, shoulder and cardio day. WHEW! Sounds like a lot right? IT WAS A LOT!

After the gym I FLEW home. I was in a hurry. We never watched Lost last night since we spent the evening with a psychologically disturbed cookie man. I can't WAIT to see it. But first, it was smoothie time!

SNACK (meal #4) at 7:15pm.
  • 1 cup unsweetened vanilla Almond Breeze
  • 1 scoop vanilla whey protein powder
  • 1 cup frozen strawberries
  • a dash of xanthan and guar gum
  • 2 cups spinach
  • drizzle of coconut flavored, sugar free Torani syrup


SO G-O-O-D! After my brain freeze inducing cocktail I took a quick bath, put my fuzzy pajama pants and rockin slipper socks on. I was still cold as ice. Or is it cool as ice? Perhaps both?! YES, BOTH! HAHAHAHAHAHA!


DINNER (meal #5) at 9:00pm

I was craving veggies! Again! Especially since I picked up so many at Aldi today! Into my largest covered pan went the following.
  • Broccoli
  • Brussel sprouts
  • Red onion
  • Cauliflower
  • Teriyaki
  • Sweet chili sauce
  • S + P


While the veggies were sauteing away, I also popped some tofu in the oven (at 425 degrees) for maybe 20 minutes or so. I seasoned them with a bit of teriyaki, sweet chili sauce, cayenne and S + P.

Nutritious protein packed perfection on a plate! It was tasty as heck! Enjoyed with an Ezekiel whole wheat bun on the side, which I sprayed with a bit of butter. MMM!


Okay, time to watch LOST! I can't STAND it anymore. I have my blanket cocoon, DVR and cup of berry tea waiting for me. Have a great night!

XO
