Holiday week is here! My goal is to eat lower carb and/or calorie controlled Mon through Wed. Sometimes I get that ‘holiday mentality’ and start eating all kinds of stuff the days leading up to a holiday. Do any of you do that? I don’t want to do that this week.
Breakfast this morning was the banana bread pudding, but I didn’t want to wait 20 minutes for breakfast. Yeah, that sounds lame writing that I can’t wait 20 minutes. Anyway, I don’t care as much for this pudding in the microwave, so, I put the batter in the waffle iron instead of baking it.
Gluten-free and grain-free waffle!
Topped with almond butter. It’s actually pretty good this way. Not crispy, but still soft like it is when baked.
Mondays are always a weird day at work. I can either be overwhelmed with work because facilities didn’t upload stuff from last week or it can be cricket chirping because we are all caught up. Today was cricket chirping, so I did what work there was and then helped John out with his business. That gave me a chance to visit with Bill the Cat. He’s quite the talker all the time. Here he is with his mouth open talking to me while taking his picture.
It’s like “Hi, I like you” “Do you like me?” “What are you doing?” “What’s this?” “Do you like me?” “Look what I am doing”. My goodness it is endless. 😯
He is really happy here. His face is still a bit messed up (as John put it), but he is looking better. Getting cleaner now as he stays inside and he has gotten flea meds. He is so, so friendly. He will be put up for adoption once I find out his FeLV status. The adoption center won’t list him without that test and I just need to find time to get him over to do that. He will be getting neutered a week from Friday.
I snagged a quick lunch of the corn and crab chowder (with a handful of Almond Thins) before heading out to tutoring.
I have to say, tutoring is really exhausting. For both me and my learner! It can be hard to find that balance between pushing for progress and not overwhelming him.
I got a latte to go when we finished, since we had met at the coffee shop for our lesson.
My brain food. Ahhhh….. I bet the Zombie apocalypse can be avoided by making sure there is enough caffeine for everyone every day.
Dinner break time was a quick one. My go-to quick dinner of a broccoli and cheese omelet.
Yay! These strawberries looked good, but a little watery tasting. Oh well.
I will be working tonight to catch up from the time spent at tutoring, but then I will get some football! Too bad I lost the picks already this week. My evening snack is dried pineapple with some almond milk. Keeping calories at 1500 today.
Dang, but Mondays are busy around here.
