More of the same routine today. I’m not complaining – I like to have a regimented schedule. After my workout, I had a small breakfast.

Well, it looked small, but there were a lot of calories packed into this ½ cup of mush.

1 banana, 1 tbs. peanut butter, 1 date and this on top…


It held me over about the same amount of time as all of my breakfasts. 3 hours. That means that I’ve been starving for an hour by the time lunch rolls around.

Sweet potato with chili – this tasted so good today! I wanted 10 times this amount. I also had a teensy tiny side salad.

Broccoli slaw with hummus + water – I should have packed more, ’twas delish.

When I came home, I snacked on some carrots/hummus while I whipped up a chicken stir fry for dinner.

Red cabbage, mushrooms, chicken, ginger, garlic, salt, and lime juice squeezed on top

And now I’m off to enjoy some of these babies:

I saw Katie post about her new raw snickerdoodle cookies this afternoon, and I thought about them all day long!

* 30 grams unsalted, raw almonds

* 80 grams dates

* pinch of salt

* very scant 1/4 tsp vanilla extract

* 1 tsp. cinnamon

* pinch cream of tarter

Blend in your food processor. Smush into balls and enjoy!

In the 3rd grade world…

I had a little girl pee her pants while sitting in her chair today. The awful part is that she sat in it for almost an hour (!!) before she stood up and I noticed the wet pants. When I asked her about it, and suggested we call her mom to bring her some fresh clothes she just shrugged and said:

Nah, that’s okay.

I then rephrased my suggestion and told her she had to go call her mom for new clothes. My only guess is that she was so riddled with embarrassment that she didn’t want anyone else to know. Poor girl.

Pin It!
