Hey guys! Happy Saturday! How are ya?
Things are going well here – Brian and I went straight to his parents’ house to dogsit after work yesterday and have started a staycation of sorts. Its really nice here and there’s a ton of fresh vegetables and fruits (thanks Bette!), plus, there are about 5 bird feeders outside the kitchen window and its hilarious watching all of the creatures (especially the acrobatic squirrels).
Yesterday my eats were quite yummy, but mostly the usual – yogurt and pb and banana wrap for breakie, leftover chili, sauteed veggies and guac for lunch, crackers with laughing cow and apple for a snack and some pasta primavera for dinner. Dessert was a chocolate sugar free pudding cup with some chocolate chip cookie and a squirt of whipped cream on top. Yum. Oh yeah! I also had a mocktail like Kath. Club soda with cranberry juice, lime and a cherry.
This morning we woke slowly and got started on breakfast. I made banana and soy milk oats with blueberries and pb on top. So good.
I got to meet up with some running friends after breakfast for coffee which was really great. I don’t see them enough, that’s for sure.
Lunch was a bowl of V8 broccoli soup with some added broccoli and beans. I also had some crackers on the side. Quite yummy.
We had a ton of bananas on our hands so I decided to make my first ever banana bread. I tweaked the recipe a bit by adding some oats and chocolate chips and reducing the sugar. I’m excited to see how it comes out. It smells delicious.
I think this evening we are going to meet up with friends for dinner but other than that, I’m about to hit the treadmill and will probably do some reading this afternoon. I’m loving this staycation! :)
Have a great afternoon guys!
