Here Come the Sun

The sun has returned!  After over a week of rainy weather we have a beautiful cloudless sunny day!  It’s supposed to rain later on but I’m so happy to have at least a few hours of sun.  Unfortunately I have some things I need to do around the house and a few errands to run, and you all know I love using Fridays to get everything out of the way before the weekend! 

I didn’t post last night because we didn’t get home until late.   My friend, Michelle, finished her last class of college on Wednesday and will be graduating in a couple weeks so we went out to celebrate.  We had a really good night and once again I stuck to drinking water all night,  I was planning on have some drinks tonight so I didn’t want to over do it this weekend.   But let’s rewind to yesterday morning.

I didn’t know what I wanted for breakfast yesterday we don’t have any milk and I just didn’t want any yogurt for some reason.  So I decided to keep it simple and have a clif bar.  Are these meal replacement bars?  The calories are pretty high but I know most people eat them as a snack.  I’m not sure I should be eating so little in the morning but it does hold me over.

For lunch I had some left over’s from Wednesday night.  Unfortunately I didn’t have any of that delicious rice left so I just had green beans and chicken.

And on the side I had some Food Should Taste Good tortilla chips I picked up on sale at Whole Foods last week.

This lunch was so delicious, the lean protien, whole grains, and fiber from the green beans did a great job of satisfying me.

I don’t think I give green beans enough credit, just look at the nutritionals.

Once I got home I was in pizza mode.  I think because Thursdays are my Fridays I crave pizza on that day.  Growing up we had pizza on Fridays all the time so I guess it has stuck with me.  I didn’t have any pizza crust so I used a piece of whole wheat Naan,  With a little bit of sauce, 2.5 meatless meatballs crumbled, lots of pineapple chunks, and some 2% mozzarella cheese.

I love pizza on Naan bread!  It’s so delicious!  And pineapple chunks and meatless meatballs is probably my favorite flavor combination right now. 

Well I’m off to get ready for my Friday errands today’s include getting my oil changed, and getting Cocoa (my car) washed.   She definitely needs one!  Plus the usual cleaning up around the apartment and doing some gardening.  Hope you are all having a great Friday so far!

Half Way There

One good thing about these short weeks is that I’m already half way through the week.  The past 2 Fridays Andrew has been on spring break, and so was my sister, and my dad was off as well.  It didn’t feel like I had weird days off because so did everyone else, this will be my first Friday watching Andrew wake up and go to school while I get to stay home.  That’s definitely going to be weird!  Luckily I have plans with a friend to go walking on the trail on Friday as well as some chores I would like to get done.  Until June, I’m booked solid for Saturday’s and Sunday’s so that extra day off is going to be like a God send for me.  It’s so nice to have these positive thoughts instead of worrying about money and getting stressed out over my shorter work weeks.

I was running low on things to bring to work for breakfast and lunch today so I had to improvise a little.  I brought an Arnold Sandwich Thin and smeared some pb on it when I got to work.  Such a simple breakfast that does wonders at keeping me satisfied.

At lunch time I ran out to get a salad, once again I went to Green Leaf’s a create your own salad place in the outlet mall across the street.  I walked around the mall for my 15 minutes of Movement, and then ordered my salad.

It contained, grilled chicken, romaine lettuce, cucs, cheddar cheese, and red onions.  With some Balsamic dressing on the side.

I also grabbed one of their multi grain rolls for on the side.

I didn’t even come close to finishing that salad and plan on having the rest tomorrow for lunch,

After lunch I was panicking because I thought I had lost something super important.  I looked everywhere for it, and questions multiple people who might have it to sign off.  No one seemed to know where it could be.  I emailed a friend about how upset and nervous I was that I had lost it, she told me to say a prayer to St. Anthony so I did.  Within minutes of saying the prayer one of my co-workers IMed me to tell me he did in fact have it on his desk and returned it to me.  What a relief!  I was so happy and really think St. Anthony brought it back to me. 

When I bought my lunch today I splurged on a bag of my favorite SunChips.

Have any of you tried these?  Believe me when I tell you that they are better then the Harvest Cheddar.  They are a little bit spicy and so flavorful, do yourself a favor next time your out and pick up a bag of these.

After work I had to go to the store and pick up some essentials for the rest of the week.  Chobani has come back into my life and I’m already excited for my breakfast tomorrow.

When I got home I decided I wanted something super quick.  I cut up 4 mini sweet peppers and some onion and sautéed them until soft.  I put them on a tortilla with some cheese, added some spices and topped it with another tortilla.  After about 10 minutes I had a delicious quesadilla.

The 2 tortillas proved to be too filling and I ate a little less then 3/4’s of it. 

Well I’m waiting for my sweetie to get home with some aloe vera.  I have some sun burn on my back and it’s getting really itchy!

I hope you all have a fabulous night and a great Wednesday!
