Hi bloggies! I hope you’ve all had a good day. I’ve been so busy lately, I have no idea what’s going on with most of you. I try to sneak in a read here and there but usually don’t get to read more than one post at a time. My bloglines account is exploding with unread messages!!
I had an absolutely awful day, so I’m drinking as we “speak.” I hardly ever drink these days (I’d rather spend the calories on food) but today a glass of wine (or 2) was much needed. Work is just so busy and stressful. I can’t wait for the weekend – it should be action packed with much more fun things! I feel a little better after my little medicine, I must say 😉
Due to a stressful day, I was a bottomless pit. I was trying to be aware of what I was doing (i.e. stress eating) so I did pretty well most of the day, but after getting home I finally snapped. That tray of brownies was calling my name. Good thing they’re healthy brownies, right? All right, all right, let’s get to it!
I got a free bottle of soy milk at the gym last night, so I decided to have a cereal medley for breakfast today. I used to hate regular milk and had soy milk with breakfast cereal every day during college, but somehow along the way I was able to appreciate milk and switched to it. Soy milk is just so much more caloric and fatty than skim milk! It was a nice treat today, though Here is my first bowl (it is a relatively small mug that wouldn’t fit everything in it, so I kept on refilling it with more milk and cereal I brought from work):
In the mix: kashi golean, kashi golean crunch, corn chex cereal, Erin Baker’s peanut butter granola + 1/2 banana. Very delicious!!
Does the bowl look familiar? 😀
Lunch was also supposed to include a salad, but I ended up having it way later. I was basically eating all day long! Seriously every time my boss stopped by my cube I was eating. How embarrassing! I hate to make a joke about it every time.
Dinner was fun! I steamed some mussels in white wine and garlic. It takes literally 5 minutes and tastes just like in a restaurant for a fraction of the cost. In fact, this whole 2 lb bag of mussels cost $5 at Whole Foods. Not bad, heh?
I had it with some sourdough bread to soak up all the nice juices. Yum!
+ a glass of white wine (some kind of Pinot Grigio)…
followed by another 2-serving brownie with dried cherries (best combo ever!):
And more vino 😀
Yeah, ok, I obviously stopped counting calories after a while. Not my best night but at least there was no eating nuts directly out of a bag.
No gym today – too busy! Sorry if I’m being lame. Seriously this was a very rough day. Did I mentioned how excited I am for the weekend?!!
Btw, have you guys seen this week’s Biggest Loser episode? I was so mad!!! (Without revealing what actually happened for those of you who still haven’t seen it) I don’t know why people start playing games so early in the game. I mean it’s so obvious what they were doing. Ok, I’m really signing off now! :lol
