I sense danger

Today was just MEH.

It started off like any other day. I was full of smiles and ready to tackle my Wednesday. Though I'll admit that I could sense the danger in the air. It had a stale, potent and rancid like aroma. With these weary thoughts rampant, I made my way to work and hoped for the best.

BREAKFAST (meal #1) at 9:00am.
  • 1/2 cup old fashioned oats
  • 1/4 wheat bran
  • 1 1/2 cup water
  • cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice, splenda, dash salt
  • 1 tbs flax
  • 2 tbs PB2
  • 1 tbs sugar free cherry preserves

I'm diggin on this cherry-PB2 combo. It truly reminds me of a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. So delicious! I also sprinkled the flax on at the end this time. I like it MUCH better this way. It had a great texture with the creamy oats.

Work was sort of stressful today. I KNEW I sensed danger this morning! I'm convinced that my clients are conspiring against me. HA! I bet they meet weekly to discuss strategies on how they can push and test my limits. Like an Ildie fan club where their motto is "HOW FAR WILL SHE GO BEFORE SHE CRACKS?" It got close today but I maintained my cool... for the most part... TAKE THAT CLIENT FAN BASE! HA-HAAAA! :-)

LUNCH (meal #2) at 12:15pm.

Consisted of leftover veggies from last night, a toasted English muffin sprayed with spray butter and a tanjelo. My entire office smelled like broccoli and brussel sprouts for the rest of the afternoon. It was POTENT but tasty so I didn't care. YUMMY!

SNACK (meal #3) at 4:15pm.

Oh Oikos, I almost hesitate eating your deliciousness. Once I indulge, that will be the last of you and this breaks my fragile little heart. I can't resist you though.
  • 4oz plain, 0% Oikos
  • cinnamon
  • 1 packet Splenda
  • 1 pink lady apple
  • sprinkle back to nature chocolate granola

I forecast and emergency trip to the Super Walmart across town in my near future. I MUST immediately stock up this creamy goodness again!!

After work it was off to the gym for my favorite workout. Upper Body! YAY!

SNACK (meal #4) at 7:15pm.

I made a smoothie as soon as I got home. It turned out super thick and delicious. So much BETTER than yesterdays gritty mess.
  • 1 cup unsweetened vanilla Almond Breeze
  • 1 scoop vanilla whey protein powder
  • 1 small banana
  • 1/2 cup frozen strawberries
  • 1/2 cup frozen pineapple
  • 1 packet Splenda

DINNER (meal #5) at 9:00pm.

I had no idea what to make for dinner tonight so I found myself tossing random things into a large pan. I do this sometimes. Most of the time, it actually turns out tasty. Today I decided to experiment with the following ingredients.
  • 1 bag of tri color coleslaw mix
  • 1 yellow onion, sliced into rings
  • 1/2 orange cauliflower
  • 2 tbs teriyaki sauce
  • 2 tbs soy sauce
  • 2 tbs fish sauce
  • 1 tbs Sriracha
  • dash black pepper
  • dash cayenne
  • dash garlic powder
I cooked this (covered) for about 20 minutes on low heat until tender. I piled a nice portion into my bowl and topped it with the leftover chicken breast from the other day and drizzled a bit of sweet and spicy teriyaki marinade on top.

On the side I enjoyed an Ezekiel wheat bun sprayed with spray butter.

I also heated up the last of my Edamame but ended up leaving the entire bowl untouched. I got way TOO full from the slaw/chicken bowl.

It turned out really good. Another successful experiment under my belt. Thank you... Thank you very much.

Time to feed my NetFlix/Dexter addiction. I've been waiting ALL day to shut my brain off and get lost in his dreamy, clinically insane yet sexy, rugged eyes.

Have a great night!
