Tuesday

Another good nights sleep. Woke just after 7am. Still a bit tired and groggy but almost back to normal.  I couldn’t decide what I wanted for breakfast and in fact, didn’t have it until 9am after I’d driven the girls to school (in my PJs since it started raining at the last minute). In the end I decided on a repeat of yesterdays lunch – pita bread with cheese, tomato and sprouts.

Since I’d had a late breakfast I didn’t both with a morning snack. I unpacked the rest of the suitcases and now just have to sort out my souveniers. Before lunch I took the dogs on a walk. Felt good to be out moving again after two days indoors. We left in sunshine and while out saw a rainbow over the lake. Made it back before the rain came which was good. I then made a much longed for salad for lunch – starring the leftover roast veggies heated up. Yum!

I had to smile when I looked out the loungeroom window as I was eating lunch.

Afternoon snack was a banana while Amy was at singing lessons. I took a photo with my phone but the computer is FULL and won’t let me download any more photos (I’m using my laptop to get ones off my camera)

I was starving when we got home so had a couple of cruskits with spreadable cheese while we waited for Kevin to come from work.

Dinner was an easy one tonight – falafel wraps. Sorry about the photo – I’d already eaten half before I remembered to take a photo :-).

And tonights treat bought back from the UK. LOVE these – good thing I can’t buy them here 🙂

Tomorrow I plan to make some oatmeal cookies and hummus!

Cold weather equals soup

Another slow morning. Drank tea while playing on the computer. Didn’t know what to have for breakfast. Eventually made myself a sandwich which  I ate in the car driving the girls to school.

After the school run I visited the pet shop to buy Bailey a coat for night-time. He’s been getting cold and sleeping on our bed too keep warm. Rosie used to do the same thing until we bought her a coat. The dogs and I then set out of a walk/photography session.

Boy was it cold out today. I had planned to have a smoothie when I got back but it was too cold. Instead I had a cup of tea, a banana and an oatmeal cookie.

 

I uploaded all my photos and sorted through the best ones. Lunch was an easy one today. Leftover red quinoa, frozen vegetables and tofu. All heated up and topped with some katsup manis (sweet soy sauce). Nice and warm and delicious.

Spent time working on our travels plans (again). I made a wrap with cheese, hummus, carrot, and spinach for my afternoon snack.

I must have been hungry because later I had a half a red onion and chili scroll from Bakers Delight and cup of tea while the girls were at singing lessons. I totally forgot I’d already had an afternoon snack!

Amy was a Nan’s for dinner and Kevin wasn’t expecting to be home till late so I decided on making soup for dinner. Definitely the right weather for soup. I made everyones favourite – cheesy potato chowder.

Supper was a cup of tea and a couple of chocolate :-). Can you tell I’ve already slipped into holiday mode?

 

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 :-).

IMG_0374

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.

IMG_0375

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

Dinner was roast vegetable pasta.

IMG_0377

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.

 

Blissful Friday

Suffered a disturbed sleep after waking up at 1.3am so woke up feeling rather groggy at 6.30am. Not enough time to do the red carpet ready workout I had planned but still time to do one of the SAS-E workouts that take around 20mins. When I was finished the girls decided they were ready for breakfast so I had my green smoothie with them.

Then it was time to shower, referee the girls arguements, and get ready to head out the door. Since breakfast had been so early and I wouldn’t be home until after 12pm I packed a snack to have later.

We arrived at school just after the bell had gone. I helped with reading for half an hour then had my wrap (mountain bread with hummus, cheese, cucumber and spouts) in the car on the way to the beauticians, where I had a very relaxing manicure and pedicure. Bliss!!

Then on the way home I ate the tropical muffin. Which, of course, meant I wasn’t hungry for lunch right away. When I did eventually get around to lunch I whipped up some stir fried veggies with tofu and pineapple, served on some brown rice. Boy was this good. And totally appropriate for this chilly day.

IMG_0301

This must have been spot on because I didn’t even think about eating again until 4.30pm (lunch had been around 1.30pm). It still amazes me that after all these years I am finally learning it’s possible to go hours without food!! I still wasn’t real hungry but knew I’d need something before dinner so I had a bowl of soup.

IMG_0302

Dinner was a veggie snitzel with homemade “fries” and veg. I ate it all but was rather full at the end. Think it will be end of my days eats.
