Bagel nosh

Put your hands together for Bagel Wednesday!  :mrgreen:   I know Helen joined me today.  Guess all my photos on the blog have some sort of effect on people…eep. 😯

I rode the trainer for 1/2 an hour this morning before we headed out for the carby goodness.

Wheat bagel.  This was big and fluffy, too.  One nice thing about later starts to a day is having a relaxing time for breakfast every day.

With coffee.

Dreary and rainy today, which hopefully will not turn over to snow.  It is warmer, too!  Although not so warm that I didn’t have some arm candy today while working.

She likes to hug my arm and it is so durn cute.

Lunchtime was a funny mishmash bowl.

This had plain greek yogurt (2%), 1/4 cup brown rice, 1 tsp honey, strawberries, and 1 tbsp of flax meal.  Kind of tasty, though.  Sort of like rice pudding.  I  got out of habit of yogurt during the winter, but it will likely make a comeback.

I got some sweet salt cravings this afternoon, so I had some peanuts.

There are some chocolate chips buried under there as well.  Just because these items  are up high (at John reaching level) doesn’t mean I won’t drag a chair over and help myself from time to time.  It just makes it occur less often than if they were in the pantry.  Oh, the games I play.

It was also latte time.

I’ve been planting some more seeds, so pretty soon there will be little seedlings popping out all over.  I may have gone a bit overboard (Mom – hope you are ready for plants this year!).  I am so getting itchy for gardening and outside biking.  I do love having the bike trainer, but I was just saying to John this morning that I want the bike outside very badly right now.  I want the tires to meet asphalt (on it’s way to a bagel!).  I looked at my blog from last year at this time and we were out riding already.

Dinner time included a buffalo chicken wrap.  I baked off a bunch of chicken today to have for a lot of the week.

I am starting to find it weird to be eating bready things other than the bagel.  I am liking my no wheat days in a lot of ways, but I need to really pay attention a little more and see if what I am noticing really occurs when/why I think it does.

Tomorrow is St. Patty’s Day.  My family is Irish and proud to be so.  I heard someone at the coffee shop is closing their office and taking the day off to go drink.  How dumb is that?  It’s one thing to go out and have fun at night, but seriously people.  We are going to cook up some shepherd’s pie with a sweet potato twist tomorrow.

I have some more work to do tonight and have a snack of some sort.  Make sure you all get your green out to wear for St. Patty’s Day! :mrgreen:

    Hi Lori,
    The bagel looks scrumptious–as does all of your food! I like how you maintain your weight in such a normal way, by including a wide variety of foods. You’ve done amazingly well and your blog is helpful to me, as a person still in the losing process. Your kitty is adorable (is it Pixie?). I am also waiting for the snow to be gone, and by golly, it is melting little by little. Temps in the 50’s today, so there is hope!

      Thank you Jane. I have a much better relationship with food than I used to. It’s not perfect, but pretty good now.

    Anxious to hear your conclusions about your no wheat days!

    And I am starting to put cinnamon on my pears! Oh, the power of your pictures. Bagels still haven’t lured me in, though.

    Crap: I’m wearing black and purple today LOL

    We have Queen’s Day here in Holland on April 30th. It’s a national holiday and almost everything is closed that day (except for some shops, restaurants and bars) and a lot of people are drunk by noon on that day. Never done that, never will.

    Help me reminding that I buy some tulip bulbs after Summer for you so you can plant real Dutch tulips in your garden. I wouldn’t be surprised if it’s cheaper to buy them here and I don’t mind mailing them to you.

    I’m kind of disappointed I gave in to the weight training so easily after reading your comment for coming over to kick my butt if I hadn’t decided 🙂 I wouldn’t mind having you over for a while as my PT.

    I was so excited about my bagel, I forgot to take a photo of it… but I had an Everything with Chive Cream Cheese. Nom, nom, nom. So good!

    I’ve been trying to figure out what I have that’s green to wear today. Most of my green stuff is summer but it’s not quite warm enough for that. I might have to resort to green eyeshadow 😀

    Happy green day to you Lori! I agree, to go drinking… not my idea of fun.. whatever. Enjoy & I have a post for Friday on a recipe I found for Shepard’s pie!

    OK, you know I love the Pixie pics & she is just the most adorable cat!!! Look at her snuggle & looking up at you too… LOVE!

    Now of course I love the pic of the bagel too!
