Happy Pi day! (3/14). Or happy Pie day, as we like to think of it…
I seem to be doing okay with the time change and sleeping, which is a little surprising to me. I was up maybe a squidge later than normal, but not bad.
I was hungry and ready for some breakfast! Today was a 1-minute muffin with some blueberry sauce and topped with a bit of coconut butter.
I do like this combo. I could seriously eat the coconut butter just by itself. I have seen it also called coconut cream (not cream of coconut, which is sweet).
I did the little work there was and then got productive and rode the bike trainer. I did 11.5 miles in 45 minutes. I actually read blogs while on the bike, so I killed 2 birds with one stone. No replying, but still reading 😀
Then I practiced my guitar. I am trying to work towards what my new schedule will be in a couple weeks for my new job. I will be back to my Sunday through Thursday schedule, but the hours will be from 2 to 10 pm. I am not crazy about that, but I do actually start at 4pm on Sunday, so most of a weekend off. I don’t know how that will affect my blogging schedule, if at all. Not totally sure the MT industry is really where I want to stay as it is not something that really can be a career anymore due to offshoring and transition to EMR. BTW – ask your doctor if their medical records are transcribed in the US or not. You might be surprised at your personal info being shipped off to another country.
Anyway, it should be full time, but I am a bit gun shy with being told that previously and not having enough work – and I can always use the money. Girl has got to eat, right? Such as this for lunch:
What is that, you ask? I had about 1/3 of a cup of the palak chole (recipe) left from the weekend. Not enough for a complete entree, so I was trying to figure out what to do with it. I decided to make an omelet with the palak chole as a filling! It worked out really well and was quite tasty. I did scramble it a bit too much, but the flavor was very good. I put laughing cow on the top, but truthfully I could have done without it.
So the title of this post is weekend nibbling. I was looking at my food log for the weekend, and while I didn’t really overeat anything in particular, I did have a few extra snacks. Mostly in the form of peanuts and some chocolate. Even after all this time, there is a tendency to want to eat more on weekends. It’s funny, because I work at home and my schedule is really pretty much the same on weekends as it is on weekdays – only no (or little) work. So it’s not like office versus home or anything. I have the same access to foods during the week as I do on weekends.
I often times do still plan my foods out in Livestrong for the weekend to help keep me on track, but then I will grab a few extra things. I know that is probably how ‘normal’ people live their lives, but I always fear going off the deep end and really packing away the food. Because I still can quite easily. Yes I can. The urge is there at times. Not all the time, but sometimes you just want to say “whatever” and just eat out of a bag of chocolate chips or box of crackers without even knowing how much you have eaten.
On that note, the peanuts have gone up high so I cannot reach them. I was heading to Snack Town on the express train with them, so I needed to nip that in the bud.
Dinner time full of grocery goodness tonight!
Well, the chicken was from the smokehouse, but fresh berries and brussels were from grocery shopping. Hooray for natural light dinner pictures again! Thank you time change.
And in honor of pi(e) day, John made these.
Coconut tarts with chocolate and coconut cream.
Recipe here. These are freshly minted and need to cool, so will have to wait to test them!
Question: Did you pi(e) today?
