Whoosh, where to begin?
I started off the morning with a trip to the gym. I always like to start off am indulgent weekend with a good workout. I did four miles of interval sprints on the t-mill, arms, core and some PT strength moves.
Before I left I had my last fig bar, but my camera at my picture.
When I returned I had an egg in a bagel hole with a caracara orange.
Then it was time for wedding number one! We were only able to attend the ceremony.
I was still hungry after this, I think because of my early morning workout! I had the other 1/2 of my bagel with pb, jam and banana.
I was sooooo windy by the water the guests were blowing away! At least the ceremony was short and we were inside shortly, but I was still cold for a long time after that.
The wedding cake was nothing special, which was seriously disappointing.
More pictures from throughout the night.
It was a great night and we danced the night away!
This morning I just wanted some runny eggs and toast.
That is exactly what we got at a very local dinnerish place in Grasonville Maryland.
This afternoon is going to be spent getting ready for the week and I am headed out to Giant in just a few. 3 weeks until the Farmers Markets open…I. cannot. wait!
I hope you had a great weekend!
Well it is still raining and very windy today. I cannot wait for 80 on Friday!
Biggest Loser tonight! I think I finally actually like someone but I will know for sure after tonight. So far Jillian is the best even if she is a pill pusher.
I really hope to get outside this afternoon, but this rain needs to get out of dodge.
I switched up my breakfast this morning to get in my other 1/2 of my multigrain with flax Wegman’s bagel.
1/2 bagel with Sanibel pb and banana, green monster and coffee.
In my monster:
- 3/4 banana
- 2 cups spinach
- 1/2 cup plian Stonyfield
- 1 tbs flax
- 1/2 cup frozen strawberries
- 1 tsp chia seeds
- dash of cinnamon
My computer is about to die and I still have some more green to slurp down.
Well hello there from the great white Baltimore!
We have made a few new friends today due to the lack of food.
Mr. and Mrs. C were among the many! Sissy is in heaven and even thought she could somehow make it through the glass window and get one. Yes, she may not be the brightest, but we love her.
So backing up to yesterday…
Salad of spinach, carrots, celery, tomatoes, avocado and balsamic with a big hunk of herb beer bread.
I didn’t have my snack until I got home, but a glass of wine joined it
Last night Nick and I couldn’t figure out what to do. I had to be at BARCS at 8:30 this morning for training, playing with kitties and escorting, so I didn’t want to make it a late night. We settled on Disc One of Mad Men and Wegman’s PYO (pick your own) dinners.
My dinner included:
Multigrain bagel with flax (Wegman’s has amazing bagels) toasted with almond butter and jelly. I also had a salad of mixed green, steamed broccoli, red peppers, tomatoes and a white bean pesto mix. I also had a store made chocolate dipped chocolate chip cookie.
I had to celebrate cookie Friday!
Mad Men was interesting. I mostly spent my time thinking about how my Dad grew up in the time this was going on and my grandfather worked! I think I am more interested in the history rather than the actual plot lines.
I was up early this morning to get into the city of training, and I was really close to just going with a bowl of cereal. I saved myself and had a lovely batch of french toast!
I dipped two pieces of Quinoa bread in 1 egg, skim, flax, cinnamon and almond extra (best part). I topped my toast with a heated mash of black berries and maple syrup. I also had some kefir with chia seeds, banana and almond butter.
This was delicious!
At BARCS today I adopted out my first cat! It was great, but no one else wanted to look at cats so I called 4 hours my time for the day. I finally got home around 1:00pm after deal with snow traffic, threw my clothes in the washer (Sissy cannot get sick from the other cats) and me in the shower.
I was more than ready for lunch!
Part 1: I made a little savory bread pudding with my leftover beer herb bread! I mixed together about 2 slices of bread with 1 egg, skim, hot sauce and poured 1/2 into my cute ramekin. Then I had a layer of spinach and tomato sauce. I finished it off the the rest of the bread and 2 pieces of Cabot cheddar. I cooked it in the mirco for one min to make sure the egg cooked then transferred it to a 425 toaster oven and cooked it for 10min.
For my dessert/lunch part two I had a delicious pear. I heated a pear with cinnamon for 1:30 then topped it with vanilla almond crunch granola. Wow this tasted just like a pear crisp! Next time; bowl and smaller pieces of pear.
Delicious DIFFERENT lunch. I always feel like I have to make my lunches at home different from anything I could bring to work.
Alright, I need to get to the cleaning I have been putting off all day and check out what the weather is going to do tonight.
Stay safe in the snow!
If you were thinking about buying a house and getting the $8k rebate, but didn’t get your act together on time, good news! They have extended the buying time until April! Nick was thinking about buying a house earlier this year so I wonder if this is going to change his mind? At any rate it should be interesting to see how this will effect the housing market if at all.
Back to breakie…
I have had mini WW bagels in my fridge, well for a long time. I needed to use at least one today, but a mini bagel is not enough for my breakfast! I have seen a bunch of eggs in a hole in blogland, so I thought I would take that and roll with it. I made my egg scrambled with dill, S&P and poured it into the wholes on the bagel.
A lot of egg got out the bottom, but I piled it back in. I liked how the bottom got crispy, while the bagel stayed chewy! Again one egg and one mini bagel is not enough (~160kcal) so I opted to use the other 1/2 of my leftover waffle. I split a tbs of Cinnamon Raisin Swirl and banana on both quarters.
I think a large fruit salad with yogurt might be its best partner? I do have one bagel left, but I need more fruit to make an actual salad. He can chill in the fridge a little while long
Have you seen all the snow in Denver?!?!? I really hope this rain they are calling for on Halloween stays away!
Have a great Thursday everyone!!!!
Welcome to Maryland, where it feels like New Hampshire! It is so cold outside! I am so happy I ran outside yesterday so I could be warm inside today!
Back it up a bit…
My second breakfast/snack as I mentioned was a mini WW bagel with chunky almond butter.
It looks so big in this picture! I feel like to best determine if it is better for me to eat one large breakfast or two small would be to make one large breakfast and eat 1/2 at home and pack the second 1/2. Maybe next week There is always time to experiment!
I had quiet the enjoyable lunch of leftover latkes!!!
The afternoon moved on and into snack time!
Harry and David Pear my mom brought (dripping good) and some almonds.
I also dove into some pumpkin bread pudding when I got home…dessert before dinner, oh well.
After multi snack time I did 47min of yoga on demand. Wow burning quads!!! Some of those classes are so hard, but I felt so good afterwards.
Once yoga was complete I starting makin some dinner. I gave Nick the option for Italian or Asian and he picked Italian. This is what I went with.
Sissy does not like being force fed drugs. In fact she gets the strength of a strong man when you try to get something down her throat. We struggled with it last night and once we got the meds in her it caused her to foam at the mouth like she was rabid! This morning went a little bit better, but I am thinking I didn’t get enough down her throat because she wasn’t really foaming again. Yuck.
OK on a happier note I was craving an egg for breakfast like no other!
I mirco’ed an egg to make a simple egg sami on a mini whole wheat bagel.
Biggest Loser Tonight!
Save the animals! Looks like it is going to rain for the marathon…I am not excited for that. I hope it changes!
Well I hate to be one to commit a blogging drive by but I am running late and I have to drop off the recycling at another community. Yep that is right, we don’t recycle at our apt so I will be taking it to Nick’s Dad’s neighborhood every Thursday. It is just a moral dilemma for me to throw a recyclable away in the trash.
Onto to food that I am currently shoveling down
Alright I am off to do some illegal dumping! Later!
Happy Tomorrow is Friday!
It is Biggest Loser night! Who is excited? This girl! Two hours seems to be a little long but when the second hours starts I feel like it just started?!?! It will be interesting to see if they have the “week two slump” in week three because they were pushed so hard last week. OK enough Biggest Loser, wait, hold on, I love the trainer tips during the commercials. Anyone else?
8 hours earlier…I was at work gettin things done loving senior stimulus.
At least I had a stellar lunch planned!
I had some lovely carrot sticks with hummus quartet, sliced small gala apple, and some leftover plantains. AND last but not least…da da da da! I had a WW mini bagel with cranberry apple chutney, almond butter and a 1/4 piece of tempeh. Very nice if I do say so myself!
Today was yoga day with Sicily! She seems to like to crawl all around me and lay on my stomach while I do the moves. I wish I could get a picture but that would be really hard to set up the camera and not move her. I did 47min fitness.core.yoga on demand and then yoga.core.strength. That core track is so hard! It is only 8min of hell, but amazing!
Note: I love Jillian! “Not the brightest bulb!”
Tonight’s menu was spaghetti squash! I love this squash! So unique and interesting the way it comes out looking like pasta. I cooked in the mirco for 8 min on high covered with plastic wrap then thrown in the oven for 30min at 300. If you just put it in the oven it can take up to an hour!
When I used to make this I just used regular tomato sauce and a few turkey meatballs. Now this is what it looks like…
And in the mix. A little less than 1/2 a spaghetti squash, 1 mini meat/lentil loaf defrosted, lentils and brussel sprouts from Sunday, stemmed broccoli, a little bit of organic sugar free tomato sauce, fresh parsley from the garden and some parm crumbled on top. A bit different eh? I also had the rest of my 1/2 of squash after I finished this plate!
I also had a glass of regular unsweetened from my medieval times cup. I went there for my birthday last year with Nick. It was actually really fun when you got into it!
I will have to debate this cupcake…or a chocolate raspberry tofu pudding cup!
Biggest Loser is calling…did I mention Tracy is crazy? Anyone else think so?
