Bill and I slept in a bit today which was oh – so – nice! We figured it would be a good day to do so, since we unfortunately have to return to work tomorrow… Bill had to work a few days last week, but I haven’t been at work since December 22nd ~ I know tomorrow morning’s going to be a toughie! It’s definitely THE END of a great, relaxing holiday vacation!
I started off with coffee & breakfast at around 8:45am… This oatmeal combo contained:
- 1/2 c oats
- 1 c water
- generous sprinkling of cinnamon
- 2 tsp pom seeds
- 2 tbsp sliced almonds
- 1 tsp flax
- 1/2 pb cookie larabar
It was a flavorful and fabulous bowl of oats that kept me satisfied until around 12:30pm! It’s amazing that this bowl would definitely not keep my hunger at bay Mon thru Fri, but for some reason it did today! Maybe I was still full from yesterday
When it was lunchtime, I smeared some homemade hummus on two slices of Arnold’s fiber bread. I noticed it was on sale today when I ran to the grocery store, so I decided to give it a try. It was amazing! It was really chewy & had a great texture to it, now I know what the fuss is about. On the side I had some baby carrots, leftover shrimp, and a sliced apple (thanks Dad!).
Here’s a close-up…
We spent the afternoon prepping both mentally and physically for the week. I got in a workout using one of my DVDs and did some ab work.
Dinner tonight was super easy & quick since we didn’t want to take too much time away from watching the Eagles game: leftovers!
Bill had his leftover chicken parm, while I enjoyed my leftover flounder On the side, we each had leftover baked ziti & a meatball that Bill’s Aunt Grace had given us to take home yesterday.
Now, true to my “goals”, I am shutting the laptop and relaxing for the rest of the evening to prepare for the week ahead!
Also, I should explain that my commenting on all of your blogs is probably going to cease yet again Mon-Fri due to the busy work week, but know that I am reading, it’s just too time consuming for me to comment
Have a great one guys
PS. Before I head off to relaxation w/ hubby land, I just wanted to remind you all to log your HBBC points. The contest ends today A big thanks to RunToTheFinish for keeping us all motivated to kick butt this holiday season I racked up 100 points, which sadly could have been more since I didn’t get to work out the entire first week due to being sick, oh well!
