Bagel day!

It’s Sunday, so you know what breakfast was!  I finally got about 8 hours of sleep, which I really needed.  I have been getting daily headaches now for the past week, and today was the first day I haven’t woken up with one.  I am just feeling fatigued, though.  John asked me if I wanted to bike to bagels and after I thought for a while I agreed, although I probably should have just scootered it and let him bike.  I did not enjoy the ride.  Sunday is usually my rest day.

Anyhoo – 8.5 miles later and I was noshing on this:


and drinking this:


After some nice chit-chat, it was time to head home so I could get started with work.  We saw a friend while biking home!


Usually I can’t get my camera out fast enough to take a picture, but she was not in any hurry to cross the canal.  She was out pretty late in the morning, kind of surprised to see her.

Busy at work today, which is good!  Have our new downstairs AC going (thanks Mom and Dad!), so it was quite comfortable.  I still wanted something cool for lunch and made a blueberry monster!


  • 1 cup of blueberries
  • 1 packet of super greens
  • ice cubes
  • 1/4 cup yogurt
  • water
  • 1 scoop vanilla protein powder.

It was quite good and cool!  For crunch, I paired it with this:


Have any of you tried these?  Excellent!  I am in love, just when I was breaking my bar addiction. 😛

Here was dinner and my new veggie – 8-ball squash!  I’ll post the whole deal in a bit.  I also made an egg salad with extra egg whites.  That’s a first for me, as I am a real yolk lover and wasn’t sure if I would like it as much – but 1 yolk seemed to be enough.  I wanted the extra protein since I am so tired.


I was so productive that I finished up work in 6.5 hours!  Yay!  I am done for the night, bummer there is no football on.

Don’t forget to check back tomorrow for a giveaway!

Jury duty starts for me tomorrow and I am on call all week.  I have never done this before, so it should be interesting.  I can walk to the court building, which is good.

Check back later for my Great Veggie Experiment post!

    Sorry about the headaches. I don’t understand them as I have had them daily also. Waking up with them is the worst. Very painful. I have had 3 headaches so far today.
    Are those the bars that you said were similar to Larabar? I have seen them around. If they are, I will have to give them a try.
    Your dinner looks delish!
    Hope you figure out the cause of your headaches and good luck with jury duty.

    Remember to bring a good book to jury duty or something to keep you entertained while you sit and wait, and wait and wait. I loved it only because I wasn’t at the office 😉 Enjoy!

    I hate those days where I just feel weary. Usually accompanied by a headache. Can’t figure if it is just your body telling you to slow down, or if it is a cumulative lack of sleep.

    Yes, I have had those pumpkin pie bars. They are very yummy! I wish there was a little less of the topping or a little more of the crunchy bar, but the flavor is great! 🙂

    SO happy to hear you got in some well-needed sleep! I’m lovin the blueberry monster, that sounds reallyreally good 🙂 You can only get the Kashi chewy bars in Canada, which sucks. I’m already sick of the flavours. Okay, off to check for the veggie experiment, you got me all curious!!
