Ah, the last work day of the week. I decided to take a rest day and make it a no-added sugar day.
They were all singing here. We were in the very last row way in the back, so I am surprised I could get a shot at all. 2 really good pieces of advice were given to them before heading to the big middle school next year:
– Choose your friends wisely
– Wear a helmet (Safety first, as I love to say)
Sound advice, no?
We had pizza and a cake that Logan made and decorated all by herself:
Also, some pretzel M&Ms were had by me, since my sister bought them! Twice in one week – eek!
That kind of inspired the no-added sugar day today. I started off with oats cooked with egg whites and made parfait style with my blueberry sauce:
Then got to work. It has been a frustrating week. Poor John is probably really tired of hearing me complain about my current employer. I decided to accept a position with another company, but I am going to start part time and see how the fit is before I give up my current job. It pays less and I won’t have my benefits, but the plus side is that I can work whatever hours I want, so I can mesh my work schedule with John’s (and no more weekends unless I feel like it). They also seem very relaxed and laid back, which is a big change from my current whip-cracking company. They also were understanding about me starting part time to test the waters with them (I was up front about that). So, not sure when that all starts, probably some time next week – which means I will be busy!
Lunch break for some tuna salad and crackers:
Tuna is starting to wobble back off the ‘like’ list LOL!
When I do the no sugar days, I eat dates to satisfy my sweet tooth:
These are so soft and sugary, too. Maybe it defeats the purpose, but at least I get fiber and potassium with the sweetness.
Very good paired with a latte.
Dinner involved an experiment:
Roasted radishes! I actually like radishes on salads, but I thought I would try roasting them to see what happened. I have to say that I prefer them raw. They got soft and lost that bite that radishes have. Maybe if I roasted them longer (20 minutes), they would have gotten crispy.
I have lots of paperwork to fill out tonight for the new position, and a nice walk in store.
Tonight’s snack will be some clementines!
John got these at the store, surprised to see them at this time of year. They are very juicy and oddly pale.
See you tomorrow for more what’s blooming in my garden (there is a lot!).
