Put your hands together for Bagel Wednesday! 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.
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!
