One More Day

February 26, 2009 at 9:26 pm 11 comments

I’m so happy tomorrow is Friday!  I’m sure most of you agree.  I can’t believe there’s only 2 more days of February left, where did this month go?  A week from Saturday we set the clocks ahead which means an extra hour of daylight in the evening, which I am so ready for!  Spring is just around the corner and the idea of that has me smiling from ear to ear. 

I’ve had a hard time getting to sleep lately, I don’t know if I have more energy then I used to from the routine exercising but I used to be able to lay down and within a few minutes be fast asleep.  I’ve had more trouble lately so I want to try to get into bed a little earlier for the next few weeks in the hope I’ll be able to fall asleep earlier too.  We’ll see how that goes, but in order to do that I need to blog quickly tonight and get right into bed.

This morning I had overnight oats with 1/2 a cup oats, 1/2 a cup skim milk, cinnamon, and vanilla.  This morning I added dried cranberries and pb of course.

I still can’t believe how long oats will keep me satisfied.  I used to snack between breakfast and lunch now I can easily hold out for lunch time.

For lunch today I had leftover cavatelli that Andrew had made for his dinner last night.

I ate this cold, I’m a big fan of cold pasta.

On the side I also had 3 mini sweet peppers.

Even though the package says “sweet” the red were kinda spicey, but they were still really really tasty.  I got a huge bag of these from Costco so except to see these a lot in the next week.

Around 3 I got hungry and had a banana with pb sandwiched in the middle.  The department vp came over to talk to me while I was snacking on this so I didn’t get a picture, here’s an old one I took the last time I had this snack though.

For dinner tonight I didn’t know what I wanted.  So I just had a few different things that sounded good.  I had a toasted ww bagel with light butter, a string cheese, and a romaine lettuce salad with light caesar dressing.

This was a weird but good dinner, it satisfied a few different cravings I was having so it hit the spot for me.

Well as I said I’m going to get into bed early tonight so I’m going to end the post here.  Hope you all have a great night, and that tomorrow goes by quickly.  Anyone have any fun plans for the weekend?

    I have nights like that a lot where nothing seems to sound like it will hit the spot. I think you found some good eats, Bagels are a total comfort food for me!

    Thanks for the reminder on the clocks!

    I cannot wait until Spring!

    I love your oats as always!

    mmm!! Good choice w/ the dried cranberries-I am always amazed at how nothing fills me like oats! Like I could eat bowl upon bowl of cereal…no really. And yet when I have oats I’m satisfied w/ just one for hours!

    Oh wow, love the eats. I’m not a fan of cold pasta either though.

    If I didn’t need to gain weight, I could totally skip my morning snack too, Oatmeal just keeps me so full!

    I don’t know why but that plain bagel looks AMAZING right now!

    I am a huge cold pasta fan- don’t leftovers taste so much better than first time around? (or is that just me? 😛 )

    I move into my new apartment Monday so my weekend is all about hitting up IKEA for throws and pillows, and packing!
