Well, today was a bit shorter than yesterday. It rained off and on all day so I was able to leave work a bit early. It’s too bad that I didn’t use the extra time to do much other than clean, but it was a nice feeling to get home before I was exhausted for a change. My next goal will have to be getting back into my training – other than a social, easy “run” on Tuesday, I have not done any exercise other than walking in at least 2 weeks
Since it was so cold and rainy this morning, I decided to go for some banana oatmeal (half a banana, some oats and milk)
I actually only took the photo after I got full, so what you see here is what I put back in the fridge to eat later. I know, it looks really ugly… I swear that it was good though!
Here’s my lunch, all packed in my lunch box:
You can see an apple, water, green pepper strips (which I never did eat and will make a repeat showing tomorrow) and my wrap that’s wrapped in tinfoil. On the wrap was some rice, some roast beef and some cheese. The plan was to have veggies on the side, but I guess I just didn’t feel like it!
After work, I ate the rest of my oats and some cantaloupe…
And leftovers for supper. I did a quick veggie stir-fry with green pepper, zucchini and tomato and put that in a tortilla along with the chicken stir-fry leftovers from Tuesday night.
Just for interest, here’s what I made my mom with the same leftovers (plus some more):
Brown rice, the same veggie stir-fry that I ate on my wrap and some roast beef.
After my mom left, I started my secret Mother’s Day project: cupcakes! Of course I ate one of these yummy treats
I made chocolate – chocolate chip – banana cupcakes with chocolate ganash (is that how you spell that?) and, of course, sprinkles! Of course I then proceeded to pop one (okay, two) into my mouth
Next, I prepped tomorrow’s breakfast – blueberry muesli and put that in the fridge.
Finally, I packed my lunch for tomorrow: the same as today, photographed without foil this time
Roast beef ans cheese, since you can’t really tell from the photo. There’s also an apple, green pepper and cucumber slices, but they don’t make such an interesting photo
I’ll leave you with an observation I’ve made since moving home: I eat way more meat when I’m not paying for it myself! My diet almost seems vegetarian when I’m on my own, but I do love meat too much to pass it up when it’s right there for me. I’m not sure why I thought this was important to point out, it was just something I’ve noticed.
