Breakfast, Brunch, and Brinner

Every meal I ate today I would, or have already had, at some point for breakfast.  Breakfast is my favorite meal so it’s not weird that a whole day’s eats could be considered a breakfast food.  It’s a rainy gloomy day so I just stuck with my favorite foods for today.

For breakfast I had a delicious bowl of overnight oats. It contained 1/2 a cup oats, 1/2 a cup skim milk, cinnamon, and vanilla, with a scoop of pb on it of course.

As much as I love my yogurt and granola breakfasts, there’s nothing like oats to make you feel satisfied for hours.

Lunch I had a yogurt mess.  It contained 1/2 a cup pb puffins, 1/2 a cup organic apple cinnamon morning o’s (whole foods brand), 1/2 a mango, green grapes, a banana, and of course a Vanilla Chobani.

It doesn’t look good at all does it?  But it was delicious, it took me forever to eat.  It was a really great lunch and something I will probably have again very soon.

For a snack around 3 I had an McIntosh apple.

I was craving eggs for dinner so I decided to just have that and make it a day of breakfast food.  I had 2 eggs scrambled with lots of spinach, and a less then an ounce of Mexican blend cheese.

On the side I had Dr. Prager’s Potato Littles, they are obviously supposed to be for kids, but I like my food in fun shapes sometimes too!

And a veggie breakfast “sausage”

After dinner we caught up on some things on our DVR, including last night’s Biggest Loser and Lost.  No Lost spoiler or anything but seriously, WTF is going on?  So confusing!

While watching TV I decided to enjoy a serving of fro yo with some chocolate chips.

I’ve had a ton of sweets this week, a piece of chocolate birthday cake, and Ice cream cake Monday, Tagalongs yesterday, and Fro yo today.  I know most of you allow yourself to have something for dessert each night, but it’s so weird to me that I’ve been craving sweets.  As I’ve said many times I don’t have sweet tooth at all so to have this many sweets in a week is pretty unheard of for me.  At least I’m keeping my portions small.

Well tomorrow is Friday!  I’m so happy that this week is almost over, just one more day.  I have no definite plans but some of my friends were in Savannah last week so I’ll probably be seeing them this weekend.  What are you doing this weekend? Anything exciting?

Drained

Thanks for being so understanding about last night’s crappy post.  I don’t know what’s wrong with me lately, I just feel physically drained, I’d love to blame it on Daylight Savings Time but I’m getting the same amount of sleep most nights, the other night I had a restless night but surely I must have made that up by now.  I just feel like from the moment I get up to the moment I lay down I’m constantly going.  This Saturday I will make the time to go to the gym at some point but other then that I am having a me day, I have some of ideas of what it will include, but suggestions are welcome.  When you want to treat yourself what’s your favorite thing to do?

I’m going to make this post quick as well so I can get into bed and get another full nights sleep.

For breakfast today I had a 2% Plain Fage yogurt with peak protein granola.

I’ve loved all the Fage yogurt I’ve received but for plain I definitely prefer the 0%. Flavored 2%’s are fine but I really like the 0% better.

A little before lunch I got hungry so I snacked on what was supposed to be a part of lunch.  Some grapes that were on their way out, I had toss quite a few of them.

For lunch I had a pb and raspberry preserve sandwich on an Arnold Thin.

Looks like my sandwich is sticking his tongue out at me.

Around 3:30 I got hungry again, and I wanted popcorn, so I took a single serving size 100 calorie bag to one of the microwaves, within in a minute it smelled like burning so I took it out, more then half of those little kernels didn’t pop, and about 1/2 of the ones that did pop were burnt, disappointing to say the least.

Such was my day.

For dinner I made tacos with the MorningStar Veggie crumbles, the texture took some getting used to but it was really good, I put the taco “meat” over a bed of romaine, 4 mini sweet peppers, taco cheese, and some onion, for dressing I used taco sauce.

A little while after dinner we got ready to go to the gym but stopped by my parents house to see their new couch, very nice and comfortable, I see many naps on that couch in my future.  As we were leaving Andrew found some soft pretzel he had left from school, I gladly took a piece from him.

The gym sucked, I just don’t have the energy, I did as much as I could on the treadmill, and then accidentally punched it, I pushed the emergency stop button, and waited for the pain to go away, then restarted it, then I realized how crappy I felt and how I did not want to be there, and instead of pushing through I freaking gave up.  I feel like I’m getting upset ofverstupid stuff lately and I need to calm the heck down.  I should have stuck it out, but I got too upset over something stupid and decided to leave.  Tomorrow WILL be a better day at the gym.

So after we came home I decided to crack open a container of fro yo that’s been in my freezer for over a month, just haven’t been in the mood for it lately.  But tonight the craving was there and I gave into it.  I had a serving of the frozen yogurt and some chocolate chips on top.  Heavenly.

Well I’m off to read and go to bed, I’m reading A Thousand Years Of Solitude and so far it’s pretty good.  Hope you all have a really good night!!!  See you tomorrow, and by then it will be Thursday!  We’re almost there!!!!
