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.
Woke up at 6am with a rather sore back this morning. It tends to get sore when I sit around for long periods of time like I did over the weekend :-(. Oh, well, guess it stops me from being too lazy as I know I’ll suffer later. Anyway, I was out the door with dogs while it still dark but light enough to see safely. I love walking at this time of day – mind you we were too early for the best part of the sunrise :-(. It was cool out this morning and I had to wear long sleeves AND a jacket.
Back home and getting ready for the day. We saw Amy off – she’s going to camp for the rest of the week and Kevin was dropping her at the train station. Christy and I enjoyed a very quiet breakfast together – she had french toast and I had two of the leftover oat pancakes with some raspberry jam.
Once Christy headed off the school I got stuck into the housework. Once I was done I had a green smoothie before heading off to get my groceries. I spotted this yummy looking salad and have printed up the recipe to make another day.
Back home with the groceries. I got everything unpacked and put away. Then it was time for lunch. I had hoped to make the above mention salad but I was too tired at this point so just made the usual. Todays featured topping – leftover Mexican Rice from last night. Tasted good.
This afternoon I managed to do a bit of scrapbooking while enjoying a cup of tea. I wanted a little “something” so had an ANZAC cookie and small dark orange chocolate bar.
Later, around 4pm, I had a piece of cape-seed bread with hummus and cheese. I put the grapes from Christy’s lunch in a bowl and munched on them a bit later.
It was a quiet dinner with Amy being away. I planned an easy dinner of microwave potato topped with mexican beans, cheese and bit of sour cream.
Later I enjoyed a cup of tea with a banana goji berry muffin (defrosted from the freezer) and some dark chocolate.
And just before going to bed I had a handful of rice crackers – left over from Christy’s lunch!
