Hi lovelies! Ever have one of those days where it seems like you can’t connect with other people because they act like you are speaking a foreign language? And it makes you want to smack your head on your desk? Yeah, I had that yesterday.
Anyway! On to better things! Dinner last night was leftovers.
Leftover salad from lunch (You didn’t think I would throw it away did you? )and leftover veggie enchilada which apparently had a run-in with the ugly stick while I had my back turned. I have no idea what happened, I found it like this. And in the middle quick guacamole which is really just mashed up avocado, S&P, garlic powder, and lots of chili garlic hot sauce. YUM! With FoodShouldTasteGood (great chips, poor name!) multigrain chips that I adore. I can’t even eat regular tortilla chips anymore because these have such great flavor, everything else is bland.
After SF class, I went straight to bed with some seltzer and my book. I read for about 1/2 an hour and called lights out at 11:30pm. I had hoped to get to bed earlier but that was not to happen.
I planned on getting up at 6am and set my alarm accordingly. But my body had different plans and my alarm was going off for 20 minutes before I even heard it.
I took care of Rocks, poured some coffee.
And started work. I finished the project and sent that in along with my invoice. A great hot shower later it was time for breakfast and I was a Starvin’ A at that point.
A huge bowl of oatbran! Minus the ground flax because I’m out. Boo! Topped with some blueberry rhubarb sauce and vanilla almond butter. This was a great breakfast! Totally filling, creamy, and delicious!
After breakfast, I took Rocky out for a quick walk and then came back home and sat down for a minute. That is when I realized that I apparently am a hungry beast this morning. It was 11:30am and I was already hungry for lunch complete with tummy grumbles. I just had that gigantic bowl of oatbran at 9:30am. :o As much as I love oats and oatbran they are not long last for me unless I use a ton of mix-ins. Which is what I’ll do when I know I won’t have lunch early or at my normal time. Regular week though I have cut down the mix-ins greatly. Before when I first started eating oats and oatbran, I had a ton of mix-ins. Now not so much. It’s amazing how one changes and grows in terms of eating habits. So cool and interesting!
That long winded story to say I made lunch!

- Chopped beet
- Shredded carrot and parsnip

- Shredded carrot and parsnip

Can you believe I forgot to take a picture of my smoothie and a whole lunch shot?! My brain is on the race guys, that’s all I can say. Boo on me though!
And now I’m off to putz around while waiting for race time to start. My first experience with an evening race and it’s a little odd!
Rose asked a fabbo question about portion control in my last post and instead of creating a gigantic reply in the comments, I thought I would address it in a future post. Hopefully tomorrow’s eats. Coolio with you Rose?
