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?

 

Tropical Muffins

Kevin and Amy were off for a day painting his office but they were kind enough to wait till I got back from the gym. Before I left I had a snack of corn thins with cottage cheese. I wasn’t really in the mood to eat just yet but knew it would be best before such an intense workout.

It’s been a long time since I’ve been on a Saturday morning and I surprised to have the cardio room to myself. It was just after opening at 7am but I was still suprised. I did 20min on the elliptical and 20mins on the bike. Back home I cooled down and had a shower. Around 9am Christy woke up so I made her some french toast for breakfast and I had an egg on toast with a cup of tea.

Since breakfast had been so late I didn’t bother with a morning snack, instead I had a very punctual lunch of leftover salad, a heaping of hummus, a boiled egg and slice of turkish bread.

I really thought I’d be wanting to eat today but I wasn’t bothered. I had some grapes around 3pm.

Then around 4pm a tropical muffin as seen on Oh She Glows. Yummy and healthy! Kevin and Amy enjoyed them too.

Around 5.30pm I was hungry but with dinner time fast approaching I decided on a green smoothie as I was a bit low of fruit & veg today.

Of course, then I didn’t get hungry again. Amy had eaten around 6pm and Kevin wasn’t feeling too well so eventually around 7pm I decided to have my dinner. It was Mexican Rice – brown rice, TVP, corn, black beans and seasoning- topped with tomato and some sour cream. It was a little bland though and I didn’t really enjoy it much. I ate about 2/3.

Out and about

I was woken up early this morning by Bailey being sick. Eventually at 5.30am I gave up on going back to sleep and got out of bed. Of course with him not feeling well a walk was out of the question. This plan to walk every day is NOT working out very well. Started the day with a cup of tea and chocolate muffin.

After dropping Amy at AG I headed off into town for some shopping. Before heading home at 11.30am I got an iced chocolate from Gloria Jeans as I was rather hungry (not suprising when I didn’t have a proper breakfast).

I also picked up this parcel which I was very excited to recieve. So fun to have leftovers in….

I even used it for afternoon tea as well…

While Christy was having her singing lesson Amy and I went to a coffee shop. I had a tea and a mouthful of Amy’s lemon tart – but it was too sweet for me.

Dinner was an easy one tonight – potato gnocchi with cheese sauce.
