Hi there folks! Was anyone else feeling lazy in the heat today? I just couldn’t seem to get going, ever! In my defense, originally, my alarm clock didn’t go off so I got a late start. I pushed myself out the door and headed to Starbucks for a study session.
I did breakfast there since I felt bad bringing in my own food, a low fat spinach feta wrap,
and a small Naked Green Machine juice.
Way to go Starbucks, I couldn’t believe how good this was! I will certainly be going back to order this wrap again, it had great flavor and chew. Plus I hit every food group and got a tasty meal for just 410 calories.
My study efforts were not as successful. The table next to me (after intense eavesdropping I think it was a girl and her landlord who was also her boss) had the longest, loudest conversation! But even after they left I couldn’t focus. I ended up working from 10:30 – 12:00, staring into space for another half an hour, and then calling it quits. I came how to veg out and was very happy about it 🙂
Plus I had a great lunch.
I’ll be honest though, I started with dessert.
After my row of Riter Sport I had roasted yellow squash,
roasted cauliflower, and
carrot salad (the recipe is posted here).
Also a serving of Asiago cheese.
I spent some serious time enjoying Bones, and I enjoyed a few too many of these salt water taffies my parents brought us from Hilton Head (they went to a wedding before visiting us) too.
I’d like to say it stopped there, but I ended up eating a bunch of other random crap throughout the afternoon. First I stole some of A’s chicken nuggets,
yes they are dino shaped, and yes he is 23. And then I ate 1/4C of peanuts.
Finally I realized I wasn’t getting full so I made myself stop and just wait for dinner. I think part of the problem was boredom and part was being tired.
Dinner was easy peasy: quinoa, topped with canned seasoned mustard greens, and baked tofu. Plus a sprinkle of goat cheese.
The tofu I drained, pressed, thinly sliced, rubbed with rice vinegar, rubbed with maple syrup, sprinkled with jerk seasoning, and cooked at 475 for 20minutes.
I made another cup of unsweetened vanilla almond milk and no sugar added CIB (this time in vanilla) to drink with dinner.
I got a very very exciting package in the mail the other day (can you guess what it is?) and I refuse to open it until my CIB is gone.
Husband and I are planning on going out for dessert later but I’ll post about that in the morning. This summer is not going to be successful until I start following a bedtime! Peace.
