monotonous.

Welcome to hump day everyone! I hope yours went well. 🙂 Mine was..like every other day i’ve been having lately. Hence the title. School is the sameee thing every day…bleh! I need variety, but I’m such a homebody/fittomyschedule it’s hard for me to make spontaneous plans and such. I also seem to let food cloud my decisions about going places, which needs to stop now. I will do this (already have been, actually). ANYWAY, on to the food~

breakfast was another toasted Ezekiel english muffin with some new ALMOND BUTTER i finally bought and more Crofter’s superfruit spread. Paired with some mango slices. Mmmmm.

That kept me reaally satisfied all morning (or maybe my appetite is just off today) so when I sort of got hungry right before lunch I gave most of my Kashi bar to Leah.

Lunch was consumed far too quickly to be photographed, but it was just 1 piece of leftover pizza from last night (YAY portion control) with a smallish salad and 1/2 an apple. That filled me up nicely so when I came home I only had a big cup of green tea, 1/2 a pear (had to toss it, it tasted chalky in my mouth :\ ) and some carrots with hummus. and a darvida cracker 😉

Supper was awesome. “broiled” “healthier” grilled cheese sandwiches with homemade sweet potato fries.

sorry about the photo! By the time I remembered to take a picture my meal was basically gone. This is what was left on Mom’s plate before she finished. To make MY grilled cheese healthier, I

  • sprayed some Pam on a baking sheet instead of buttering the bread
  • used whole grain whole wheat bread
  • used kraft 2% cheese
  • added tomato and TONS of spinach
  • put that all in the oven set to low broil and wait til one side toasts, flip, repeat!

It was super tasty and just as good as a normal sandwich. My appetite was crazy though but since i had YOGA tonight dessert wasn’t much. Some grapes..then some applesauce.

Tea in one of my favourite mugs. It says “2000” on the handle and a picture of Pooh bear & Piglet with text that reads “Cold days are meant for warm friends”. Awwww. It was given to me by a good friend of mine. 🙂

Yoga was AMAZING. We did a lot of back stretching which felt really nice~ I came home and snacked on a few handfuls of Old Dutch multigrain nacho chips though. 😐 Not the best choice but they’re so darn good ! I managed to stop myself and NOT go anywhere near overeating. Small steps at a time. 🙂

Night everyone!

yum.

Happy…Tuesday everyone!! (Not much of a reason to be happy, buuut whatever!) WAIT, what am I saying? There’s always a reason to be happy. Remember that.

As mentioned yesterday, today’s breakfast was a yogurt parfait…I actually spent a bit of time last night dreaming this little baby up (am I a complete dork or what? ….don’t comment on that ;)). Post workout I had another enriching blueberry green’s smoothie, but that didn’t hold a candle too…

My parfait!!

is she cute or WHAT? (And may I add, very tasty ;)) the mix was;

  • 1/2 c. + 2 T Liberte non-fat organic strawberry yogurt
  • 1/2 c. Kashi GOLEAN crunch cereal (Almost exactly like granola IMO)
  • Cantaloupe

My morning went pretty well. At the beginning of 3rd period I snacked on a Kashi TLC bar in the “dark chocolate cherry” flavour. (Had to have this flavour after reading about Starbuck’s latest spring drink…CHOCOLATE CHERRY MOCHA. HOLY YUM.) I love every single Kashi product i’ve tried so far, it’s awesome knowing i’m eating something good for me, too.

I forgot to photograph lunch (hahaha so not used to food blogging yet!) but it was simply leftover Pork and Pepper pasta from last night and a honey crisp apple. Also about 3 tortilla chips from a plate Leah was eating. 😛

After school I had 3 Darvida crackers (YUM!!) with about 2 tsp almond butter. After that Mom and I headed to Walmart since I have to renew my passport & needed a new photo. I’m heading to NEW YORK CITY at the end of April..ohmygosh, I CANNOT WAIT. SDFNDFKNDGGHFG. I’m sorry to say it’s probably the WORST picture of me ever, LOL!! The photographer did warn that passport photos are NEVER flattering. At least it beats my old picture! (12 years old..rocking a turtleneck sweater..oo baby).

Stopped by the grocery store and I picked up some more Ezekiel english muffins, some more Optimum Slim cereal and my very first jar of ALMOND BUTTER! (The stuff I had before was from a sampler from a bucket at the bulk food store…not real almond butter). Going to try it out tomorrow, I’m quite excited 😀 (love me?)

For supper Mom and I made homemade pizzas. (Well, MOSTLY homemade..the crust is a whole wheat thin crust that is store bought..)

On it was:

  • Tomato Sauce
  • Spinach
  • roasted red peppers, onion, mushroom & zucchini
  • low fat mozza cheese
  • crumbled feta cheese

OMMGGG I love homemade pizza. The above picture is from Mom’s pizza but mine looked the same. We each eat 2 pieces (half the pizza…LOL. I don’t care. 🙂 )

Dessert was identical to yesterdays. A huge mug of tea and some fruit w/ chocolate sauce:

Well that’s all ! Night everyone 🙂
