Good evening! How is your week starting out?
Today was a bit hectic. I was supposed to be off and had planned to get my blood work done, tackle some much needed housework, laundry and meal prep, but work called me and was in a pinch. I said no at first, as I was asked to be there in 30min and it takes me almost 15 to get there! I wasn't dressed, didn't have breakfast (I had fasted) or fed the zoo or anything yet. Then they called back because they couldn't get anybody else, so I agreed if given an hour. I rescheduled my blood work (again), and raced around getting the essentials done, dressed and getting out the door. Phew! I'm not used to getting ready that fast-and I'm not a fan of rushing :(
Once done I met hubby for a quick lunch. He was supposed to come home, I had planned to make us something but he had a meeting to be at so were rushed for time. We met at our favorite Korean place. He ordered a couple rolls of sushi and I had salmon. He ended up having to leave me to finish up on my own, but I didn't mind.
By the time I got home, returned some calls, did a few chores, it was already supper time! The day just flew. Tomorrow I work at the Rec Center again and then I must get some more done around here- including a planned workout :)
We did get out and take the girls for a brisk 30min walk on Sunday. I dressed them up in their warm coats and booties as it was a cold one!
Eating has been pretty good, but not completely according to the meal plan. I either haven't had time to make the planned meal or we felt like something else. I usually do this every time I plan. We pick from it and use most of it, but there are always a few exceptions.
#1-Maple cinnamon waffles w/ P.B and raspberries and a smoothie; blueberries, mango, Sun Warrior (I bought the wrong one! Booo!) bee pollen, soy milk, flax, spirulina.
#2- Whole wheat shrimp taco with rice, black beans, pico de gallo, guacamole.
#3- Spinach salad with bell peppers, carrots, red onion, avocado, pumpkin seeds and nutritional yeast with Goddess dressing.
#4-Rockin' Moroccan soup, from Looney Spoons cookbook with cheddar garlic biscuits.
#1-Apple Cinnamon oatmeal & whole wheat English muffin with P.B, .5 banana and cinnamon.
#3-Caesar salad with avocado, veggie patch chicken nuggets cooked in Franks Red Hot buffalo sauce, and a sprinkle of Parmesan. So good!
#4-Tortilla crusted quiche. In the mix; mushrooms, green onion, bell pepper, spinach and a little cheese. Served with a slice of whole wheat toast. I got the idea for the tortilla crust from Amy. Such a great idea!!
I also had a bowl of popcorn last night with nutritional yeast :)
#1- A sprouted grain bagel-that I forgot to take a shot of, while racing to go to work ;)
#2-Teriyaki salmon, sprouts and rice.
#3-Veggie loaded spaghetti and a cheddar biscuit.
#4-My new obsession...Popcorn doused in nutritional yeast. Cheesy perfection!!
Over all pretty good. I do however see that no fruit was eaten today...Oops! See, pictures do help! I shall correct this tomorrow! I actually did bring a banana to work as a snack today but gave it to my coworker who didn't have breakfast and forgot her snack!
There's a new App for the iPhone that has gained popularity with Instagram users called Waterlogged. It helps to keep a tally on your water goals and consumption. Something that I do, and always have struggled with. I did great yesterday but fell very short for today.
Tomorrow I shall make goal!
I'm a fan of app's and reminders for everything! I have my alarm set on my cell for Lilly's med's AM and PM, my vitamins, my food tracker and I set my alarm for reminders a half hour before I have a customers picking up their orders, so I don't forget to box it up. It helps my brain! LOL :)
Well I must get to bed! Have a great day tomorrow!
