Let's start from the beginning.
BREAKFAST (meal #1) at 9:45am.
Yeah, that's right. I didn't get around to breakfast until almost 10:00 and I was still finishing it up at 10:30. It was that kind of a morning!
- 1/2 cup old fashioned oats
- 1/4 wheat bran
- 1 1/2 cups water
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- dash pumpkin pie spice
- pinch salt
- Splenda to taste
- 2 tbs peach preserves
- 1 tbs flax
- 1 tbs Better N' Peanut Butter
Never gonna give you up. Never gonna let you down. Never gonna run around or desert you. (I just wanted to sing a little ditty for Better N' Peanut Butter because I LOVE IT!)
Breakfast calmed me down a bit, but not much! My hair ripping, mind unraveling, stress party continued all the live long day.
LUNCH (meal #2) at 1:00pm.
It seems that all my meals were late today. SIGH! At least they were delicious!
I had an everything bagel thin sandwich with smoked turkey and romaine. On the side I had roasted garlic hummus with green peppers and carrots. SO GOOD!
SOMEHOW, by luck and a hint of black magic, I managed to sneak out of the office today. I HAD TO! Nick's Birthday is this Thursday and I had yet to buy him anything. I worked quick like a bunny and managed to find him the perfect present. He'll be so excited! :)
SNACK (meal #3) at 4:00pm.
I had a Dannon Greek yogurt with cinnamon and pomegranate granola. I have decided that I LOVE this yogurt. It's so creamy, thick and DELICIOUS! It's officially my second favorite after plain Oikos.
We hit the gym after work for biceps, triceps, shoulders and cardio day. My favorite. ;)

SNACK (meal #4) at 7:15pm.
I indulged in another delicious recovery smoothie the second I got home.
- 1 cup unsweetened vanilla Almond Breeze
- 1 scoop peanut butter chocolate protein powder
- 1 banana
- LOTS of ice
I'm loving this new protein powder flavor. Even the smell is amazing! YUM!
Nick and I were giddy with anticipation all night. We had planned on watching the last episode of Dexter Season 3 tonight. This meant Dinner would have to be QUICK! I'm not known for my patience, you see.
DINNER (meal #5) at 9:00pm.
Nick was having leftover pizza. I should add that it was several days old. He's a brave little soldier. OLD leftovers freak me out. It's why I always eat them as soon as possible or freeze them, if they can be frozen.
I took a whole wheat and flax Flat Out and stuffed it with leftover tofu from last night, fat free american cheese, green onions and roasted garlic hummus. I folded the FlatOut in half and toasted both sides in a frying pan. URGENT ANNOUNCEMENT! This was delicious! I topped it with Trader Joe's smoky peach salsa and devoured it.
I also enjoyed some green beans with spray butter and garlic and sea salt sunflower seeds.
Oh so good! I licked the plate clean.
Alright lovelies. It's Dexter time. Going to finish the season while I cuddle with the Mr. and then call it a night. Time to unwind!
