The End of the WeekendPosted: January 24, 2010
Hello! Sorry I have been really lazy this weekend. I’m not sure if it is the gloomy weather out today or the fact that I think not being able to “move” is seriously effecting my drive to do anything.
Backing up to yesterday afternoon…
BARCS training went well. I was really sad to see all of the animals that need homes and we also saw some questionable people trying to adopt. I stayed for an extra class and I have a tetanus shot scheduled for Wednesday and cat socialization class on Saturday morning. I made the decision to not work with the dogs because most of them are pit mixes and I just do not feel comfortable with them and they would know it.
After training I actually wasn’t very hunger for it being 2:00pm so I headed to Trader Joe’s for some goodies. I was out of coffee and that along with nut butter is my cue to head on over. I stopped into Starbuck for a soy misto to sip while shopping and by the time I left I was starving! I guess it was all that food in my vision. I dominated this Z-bar in the car.
Why was this my first Z-Bar? not too much sugar and whole grains, protein and fiber. I really enjoyed this little guy.
By the time I got home it was about 3:30pm so I didn’t want to eat anything too big and spoil my dinner so I went with plain yogurt, TJs fiber cereal (which is the same thing as the fruit and nut, but without the f&n), and some blackberries.
Now as for dinner, I really wish I would have remembered my camera because the food was real good at a local martini bar – I was really more like a normal bar. I had the hearts of palm salad and a Scallop BLT that comes with pepper bacon and a grilled tomato, no bun! Nick and I also split the Irish car bomb bread pudding (how unique we had to try!). Unfortunately the flavor was there, but the texture was off. More like a gelatin that a bread pudding. I also enjoyed a dirty martini throughout the meal.
This morning when I woke up I really wanted something different for breakfast. I opted for a “scone cookie” – they were a scone recipe, but I missed the thickness shape.
Blueberry scone with almond butter, plain Stonyfield yogurt with granola, banana and TJs fiber cereal.
My scones included: WW flour, applesauce, unsweetened dried blueberries, sugar, hemp protein (testing this stuff out), oat bran, and skim.
These were good and I think I could reduce the sugar even more next time.
In between two pieces of quinoa bread I had mustard, spinach, b-nut squash and goats milk cheddar. I really liked this cheese because it has that sour-ish goat cheese flavor.
Even Sissy wanted to be under the covers all day.
I wanted something light and easy for dinner so I went to town on Mexican salad.
I my bean mix I heated mushrooms and onions until cooked then added no salt added black beans, garlic, tomato paste, chili powder and jalapeno.
Time to get back to some football!
I hope you had a great weekend!
