The countdown is on

I decided to skip doing my food blog until after our trip as things seem to be getting busy around here as the countdown continues. Plus food might be a bit boring as we try and use up what’s already in the house. But I’ve changed my mind…for now…

It’s so cold in the mornings now that I keep putting off my workouts. Instead I’ve decided to move them till later in the day. So this morning I got up and started the day reading blogs while enjoying a cup of tea.

Breakfast was spaghetti on toast. Perfect on this cold morning.

Once the girls headed off to school I got started on todays chores – which included cleaning upstairs with a thorough clean of both bathroom and our bedroom. It took me till nearly 1pm with a break around 10.3oam for a green smoothie.

Boy was I glad to sit and enjoy my lunch – salad with a lentil pattie and roast garlic dressing.

Tired as I was I still managed to find some energy to take the dogs on a walk. This afternoon I got a few more jobs done, made some fresh bread for the girls and more of those healthy cookies.

My afternoon snack was some slightly stale protein crisps.

Dinner tonight was chili con carne (made with TVP) served with some tortilla chips. Topped with a bit of cheese and some low-fat sour cream. Yum!

Lastly I enjoyed a cup of tea and two of the cookies.

A saucy dinner

Up early today and headed out on a walk. It was cold and drizzly so a cup of tea was in order upon our return.

Later I made pancakes for Christy since we had no bread. I decided to have one too – topped with banana and maple syrup.

After I dropped the girls at school I headed to gym for a cardio workout. 20mins on the eliptical and 10min on the bike and I was a sweaty mess. Home for a shower and a chocolate protein shake.

Then I was off to get the groceries. Had to visit both Coles and Aldi today. Lunch was a black bean burger on country grain bread with tomato, cucumber and some cheese.

Afterwards I finished the chocolate bar I nibbled on while shopping :-).

I was in a real funny mood this afternoon so found myself wanting to nibble and snack. I tried not to. I had some crackers and cheese for my planned snack.

There was also a few handfuls of tiny teddies :-(.

Dinner was roast vegetable pasta.

I wanted to improve on the tomato sauce so I cooked up some grated carrot, zucchini and sweet potato, with some baby spinach added at the last minute.

Then topped with the jar of sauce.

Served over the pasta with a sprinkling of cheese. Delicious.

I wanted some ice cream but opted for a low fat Billabong instead. Hoping to be in a better mood tomorrow.
