I woke up with BUNDLES of energy today. WHAAAAAAAA! Naturally this translated into a cleaning, organizing and laundry filled frenzy. I figured I better take advantage of my finickiness while it's still running rampant. My mood could suddenly switch to craving precious couch time instead and then it will never get done. Ahh, the smell of lemony cleanliness makes my nose tingle with excitement.
I celebrated my fresh paradise with a nice cup of fudge brownie flavored French press coffee.
And blog reading, naturally!
My stomach started yelling at me at about 9:00 so I fed it a delicious treat.
BREAKFAST (meal #1) at 9:15am.
I had a toasted whole grain english muffin with sugar free strawberry preserves (Smucker's) on one side and spray butter and cinnamon on the other.
I also made a 4 egg white scramble which I seasoned with pink salt and black pepper.
Last but not least, two Morning Star Farms breakfast sausage links drizzled with sugar free syrup.
I got a bit fidgety after breakfast. I distracted myself with an episode of Dexter. We're almost completely done with season 4. Soon there will be no Dexter love left for me to enjoy. I get sad and misty just thinking about it.
Ann called me around noon and asked me to come over to check out her new apartment. She wanted suggestions on where to place some of her knick knacks and smaller pieces of furniture. She's always said that I have "that touch" when it comes to decorating. I happen to agree with her. HA! Sometimes I fantasize about being an interior decorator. That would be such a fun and stress free job! Oh to dream!
LUNCH (meal #2) at 2:00pm.
I had lunch at Mama and Papa Babushka's house as usual. I had a veggie quesadilla. I KNOW, I've been on a quesadilla kick lately. What can I say, I LOVE EM! I mixed a serving of fat free refried beans with Morning Star Farms grounds and taco seasoning. I also sauteed a green pepper and a yellow onion with salt & pepper. I stuffed the bean mixture and veggies into a FlatOut with fat free cheddar cheese and and grilled it to perfection. I had the leftover veggies on the side along with a vine ripe tomato.
SNACK (meal #3) at 5:30pm.
After my visit I came home and decided that I NEEDED ice cream. Not just ANY ice cream. BANANA SOFT SERVE! I busted out the trusty food processor to make a nice bowlful of creamy sweet goodness. I tossed in two frozen bananas (chunks), about 2 tablespoons of unsweetened vanilla Almond Breeze and 3 drops of vanilla custard Capella Drops. I scrapped, blended, scrapped, blended for maybe 5 minutes and it was perfect. The texture was super creamy and delicious. I topped it with a bit of coconut flakes and granola. HEAVEN IN A BOWL I tell you. HEAVEN!
After my icy fuel, I decided to clean the bathroom. The smell of bleach and scrubbing bubbles was rampant in the house for at least a solid hour. I went WILD in there! It needed it though!! Sometimes I really hate my jacuzzi tub!
Nick had his brother Dan over tonight to watch some recorded episodes of the World Rally Championships. EXCITING right? NOPE! :)
I decided to spend the evening upstairs instead. I haven't blogged from bed in a while. Just me, my laptop, kitty and my remote curled up in a fluffy comforter. That sounded WAY more appealing than listening to men screaming back and forth while sipping Red Stripe and waving their hands all about like hyper children. :)
Before my hibernation into man free zone, I made a quick dinner. I didn't feel like cooking so I came up with a quick plate of goodies.
DINNER (meal #4) at 9:00pm.
I had a smoked turkey, spinach and superfruit preserve sandwich on an Ezekiel whole wheat bun. Of course I had to make sure to get my veggies in so I also had carrots, broccoli and cauliflower with hummus on the side.
And for a bit of a treat, I decided to try one of the new Nature's Path granola bars I received the other day. The Chococonut flavor.
Uhm, this little wonder bar was seriously delicious! I mean I'm partial to coconuty things but trust me, it was FABULOUS! It gets a solid 10 of 10 on my tasty-tasty scale. It was moist, chewy and sort of reminded me of an Almond Joy which I LOVE! OMG! Thanks Nature's Path! I hope I can find them in a store somewhere around here!!
I can hear the boys screaming downstairs as I finish this post. Over cars.... ?? I just don't get it! HA!
I have some serious DOMS in my legs right now. I think I'll stretch for a bit and then watch a mix of HGTV, Food Network and "E" until I pass out. Exciting I know. :)
Have a great night!
