Today was a long day. It started out with my alarm being my enemy this morning. It was followed by 11 hours of nothing but Health and Safety work at the office (note: I work 7 hour days but I worked through my lunch and kept working from home tonight).
Today started out with coffee. It was much needed. I’m new to the coffee world. I’m a pathetic coffee drinker actually. I buy the PC hazelnut coffee and the vanilla… then combine them and brew them up in my fancy empire red Kitchen Aid coffee maker. I add a splash of skim milk and 2 heaping spoons of Splenda. I’m sure that’s enough to make most coffee lovers puke… but it’s how I can manage it and it wakes me up nicely!
When I got to the office I enjoyed a smoothie with: frozen fruit, 1/2 frozen banana, yogurt, skim milk, chocolate Amazing Grass, chia seeds & 1/2 scoop protein powder. This thing kept me full from 8:30 until 1:30!
Lunch was one of my classic salads. Romaine, baby spinach, shredded carrots & broccoli (bought in a pre-made bag), 1/4c black beans & corn, cucumber, 30g light old cheddar & 3oz boneless, skinless chicken breast. The dressing was my old favourite… 2 tsp EVOO, 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar, frank’s hot sauce & garlic.
It was followed by some awesome PC Greek yogurt
Dinner was not photographed… but it was a Blue Menu chicken burger on a whole wheat bun, low fat superfries and peas with frank’s hot sauce.
I have a new favourite snack (but didn’t have time to eat it today). Baby carrots with Kraft Calorie Wise Poppyseed dressing.
The plan was to go to the gym today… but work was too exhausting. Tomorrow is shaping up to be the same. These are the days of our lives. I’m off to enjoy some Teen Mom 2!
