Today is a GREAT day!!
Booya!! My term ended at the end of January and I had to go back to my home position. Not cool.
But I’m baaack now!
And I get to stay with my platoon, which is uber duber exciting!!
I love all the girls I work with.
And I have a SPECTACULAR supervisor 🙂
Life is goood!!!
I’ve also had some awwwesome eats too in the last 2 days.
Breakfast on Tuesday was eaten on the prison plate.
I couldn’t decide on what I wanted so I had everything I wanted 🙂
walnuts, salt n pepper pistachios, half a nan with almond butter, frozen grapes, frozen raspberries and blueberries and half a grapefruit. Perfect.
Lunch was yummy yummy.
Squirrley bread, egg + egg white, swiss chard, veggie burger, salsa and goat chedda.
I made a few snackies for work
popcorn with earth balance and nutritional yeast
steamed carrots (my favorite as of late)
and a mango
Supper was just a simple pasta with edamame beans, leeks, garlic and organic pasta sauce. Swiss chard on the side.
I ate everything pictured 🙂
I woke up at around 3pm on Wednesday and even though I had to work my last night shift, I still celebrated CINCO DE MAYO!!
I topped it with salsa and hot sauce
which I apparently didn’t take a picture of ?
when I got to work I mixed in some corn coleslaw.
Before that beaut I made protein pancakes!
This time I added 1 tbsp of almond butter, an extra 1 tbsp of almond milk and 1 1/2 tsp chia seeds.
I topped it with vanilla frozen yogurt and blueberries!!
Don’t judge me 😉
I could only eat about half of these but they were soo good! It was like having dessert for breakfast!!
I snacked tons last night.
We went to Booster Juice and I got the snacksize Terminator. I wanted 10 of them.
I left at 2am because I had a nail appointment and I didn’t want to be a zombie all day on no sleep.
I looooove this color. She mixed two colors together to get this one and it just feels so summery.
I stopped at Indigo on my way home and bought a bunch of cards, two magazines and a new cookbook!
So excited to read this. I flipped through and saw that it is split up into sections of spring, summer, fall and winter. I love eating food that is in season so I’m sure this book is going to be great.
We had Wok Box for supper tonight because when I got home from shopping I was STARVING!! I hadn’t eaten anything yet today and did not feel like cooking. I ordered the Jungle Curry with no meat, rice or noodles. I made a side salad with grape tomoatoes, romaine and feta with a crunched up triscuit and balsamic dressing.
After supper we went to Jerry’s for ice cream. They have way too many choices so I got two. Peanut butter chocolate and key lime pie.
I also got to have a sweet phone date with my best friend Paige. I MISS HER!! 😦
I am off all weekend from work! YAY!! Andrew and I have plans to go for an early morning walk/run with Bizzle and then who knows.
I’m off to bed!
Hey guys! Happy hump day! I was home from work sick today 😦 and am just starting to feel better. I started to feel icky last night after supper and when I got to work this morning it just seemed to be getting worse. I didn’t feel like I had the flu, I just felt off. Not me. So I came home, took some Super Orange Emergen-C and had a loooong sleep. I woke up, had a little bite of lunch and fell back asleep. Obviously my body needed it. I’ve been drinking lots of tea today and Andrew made supper with lots of ginger to help with my nausea. Feeling A LOT better now 🙂
I promised a different breakfast today and I didn’t lie…
Gobbled this mess up. Was 2 egg whites and 1 egg. Goat cheese and raspberry jam. So great. I had packed this for lunch
Lunch was supposed to be a sundried tomato with more goat cheese, roasted veggies and radish sprouts, oranges, leftover salad, granola bar, protein muffin with cashew butter and cottage cheese. Lunch ended up being just the wrap, honey lemon tea and another nap.
We had an early dinner tonight and it was excellent. Brown rice and veggie stirfry.
