40 Days and 40 Nights

I feel like this whole week is just flying by!  I can’t believe tomorrow is already Thursday.  Tomorrow is a normal work day for me but there’s a meeting I need to attend plus more work on a new project so tomorrow should continue the trend and be over before I even realize it.  Then Friday I’m getting trained on a new version of our design/drafting software the whoooooole day which will also go by super quickly.  Then Saturday it’s my mom’s kinda sorta birthday.  She’s a leap year baby (she’s only 12 lol) so she doesn’t have an actual birthday, but she makes us celebrate anyway.  Any ideas on what to get a mom who never asks for anything?  Send them my way, I have no clue what to get her!

So for breakfast I continued the Chobani trend of the week and had another peach yogurt with peak protein granola.

I had to stop myself from licking the container clean, I just love this flavor.

I was so excited for my lunch I almost couldn’t wait to eat it!  But I held off until a normal hour, and had my leftovers from last night’s dinner out.  Gosh this was even better then last night!  Michelle and I talked about it at lunch and how we just want more and more of it.

I was hungry for a snack around 3 but there just wasn’t much time to eat.  It was a crazy day where I felt like I was running around the office more then I was at my desk, I am in no way complaining being at my desk for 9 hours a day really drives me nuts.  It was nice to have things to do that didn’t involve sitting there.

I had to meet with my personal trainer tonight so I had to have a quick dinner.  And it’s Ash Wednesday so that means no meat for me.  I went the easy route and had an egg wrap.  I had 2 scrambled eggs, with 2 mini sweet peppers mixed in, and some onion.  On the side I roasted 2 baby white potatoes with a small amount of olive oil, garlic powder, and onion powder.  Such an easy meal but completely satisfying!

There was too much egg to fit all in the wrap so I had some on the side as well.

Those potatoes were roasted perfectly.

So did you give anything up for Lent?  I’ve been toying with giving up meat and I still haven’t decided yet, but I think I’m going to do it.  It’s only 40 days right?   It’ll give me the chance to try new things, and I think to get out of this food rut I feel like I’ve been in, it’s just the right choice for me right now.  I was scared to put it on the blog because I’m afraid I might not be able to do it.  But if it’s on the blog it will hold me accountable.  I have great resources for vegetarian meals with all your wonderful blogs, and my best friend Michelle is a vegetarian as well so she’ll be able to help me on the way.

Since I typically eat meat I’m not going to be a very strict vegetarian, as it is I don’t eat too much red meat, it’s going to be chicken that’s going to be hard to give up.  But I’m willing to give it a shot.  Wish me Luck!
