* Oatmeal bar giveaway – don’t forget!*
Another rainy, drizzly day today. Hit the gym for a nice 4-mile run on the treadmill. It felt quite good today. Must be because I haven’t done a run in a week. Biking does the legs some good! 🙂
John met me part way and we decided to partake in the Starbucks free pastry day for breakfast. I had a skim latte (drizzled with honey):
And the reduced fat berry coffee cake.
It was fresh and pretty good, although still a little institutional tasting. But thank you Starbucks! Mucho appreciated!
Standard work day today. Pixie kept me company for a while.
This girl really knows how to sleep.
Lunch was good today. I made up an egg/egg white omelet (hot sauce? Yes please) and roasted up some cauliflower in the toaster oven with some Chinese 5-spice powder.
I think I would like the cauliflower to be a little more roasty than this. The spices made it looks more toasty that it really was.
Glad you liked my post earlier on how I build my meals. It is such a habit now that I don’t think too much about it. I used to always want some kind of carb thing with dinner, but then I realized that could be fruit and not bread!
John made up lattes today, and I left out the protein powder, but there was a square of this (x2)!
A package arrive for me today containing this I ordered:
Of course, I had to open it up and stick my finger in there:
Then I did this:
Think I liked it? So good. Little crunchy toffee bits and peanuty goodness. Hellooooo oatmeal!! I need to try to make some more different kinds of nut butter like this. I’d start a business if there wasn’t already a local nut butter seller!
I think I might be safe in telling you all that I have an offer on the rental property! That was my one goal in March – to sell it, and I got a good offer a couple weeks ago. Last week were the 2 biggies from my end, which were the inspection and the appraisal. Both went well, so that is all I can do from my end. Now we just need their concrete mortgage finalized and closing will be in late April. I was leaping around on Friday after the inspection came back in the clear! This will be a *huge* stress off my back once the sale is done. Now I probably jinxed it by saying something about it
This looks small, but there was a cup of broccoli in there 3 oz of shrimp, plus a little bit of the rice John cooked yesterday.
I even have a more appetizing snack for tonight:
My first time trying the mini babybels. Have you had them? If it is cheese anything, I will like it….
Tally of fruits and veggies today:
F: 2 clementines, strawberries, 1 pear
V: 1 cup cauliflower, 1 cup broccoli
Question: How is your veggie challenge going this week? Getting in any extra?
