Busy, Busy, Busy

Sorry for the delayed, combined post but hey, I’m a very busy lady!! 🙂

I can’t say enough good things about my breakfast yesterday.  It held me over wonderfull!  I think it was in part because of the latte but whatever.  Something else that helped was I went home to take care of Baylee right before lunch, so it kept me busy and my mind off of food!  I can’t tell you enough of what a goofball she is though.  I saw my life flash before my eyes at one point:  we were outside again practicing her commands outside and trying to stay in the yard, when all of a sudden a huge bird flew overhead.  Baylee of course thought it was her lunch, so she ran after it and jumped in the air to catch it.  Unsuccessful.  To my surprise, the bird swooped down and almost dive bombed ME!  Of course Baylee was still “on the prowl” so she came running and jumping at me to catch the bird!  She’s a big dog with a big mouth so I probably looked quite silly doing the duck and cover in my dress clothes!  Thankfully, I made it out of the situation unharmed, so could go back to work (yay….)!

When I got back, I made myself a lunch of leftover Hot Beef from our get together last Friday.  It didn’t disappoint.

I had it on a Light Whold Wheat bun with a little BBQ sauce (yum!), some pickles (again, YUM!), a few cheese curds, and some veggies.  It’s hard for me to sit and just eat veggies because it’s pretty boring, but I figured it needed to be done since I’ve been pretty lacking in the vegetable department lately.

After work, my sister was having an Uppercase Living  party.  This stuff is A.mazing!!  Seriously!  I cannot wait to order and get my stuff.  My mind was racing with crafty ideas that I could use to decorate my house with!  Plus it was fun because I got to see my sister, Mom, and sister-in-law.  I don’t get to see them as often as I like, so it was nice to be able to chat with them afterwards.  Since the party was at 6, I wasn’t hungry beforehand but knew I couldn’t make it until I got home at 10, so I just grabbed a little baggie of frozen leftover Veggie Lasagna, and heated it up once I got to my sister’s house.  Sorry, no pics 😦  I also had 2 small plates of chips and dip, with a handful of sweet and salty chex mix.

Although I don’t have pics of my food, I did take a pic of the item we made last night at the party!  It’s a little votive holder!  How cute?  Plus our decor in our home is primitive, so I think it’ll go really well.

(It says Simplify if you can’t tell by the picture)

The only bad part about last night was I didn’t get home until about 10.  I then still had to prep for today (pack my gym bag, pack my breakfast and lunch, get my clothes ready) and get ready for bed.  I ended up getting to bed around 11 – not ideal when I had to get up at 5:30, but that happens.  I was tired  this morning, but the weekend is right around the corner (!!!) so I think I’ll make it.

For breakfast this morning, we are out of bananas again 😦 so I had to improvise. 

I made my usual oatmeal with Vanilla Soy Milk, but this time added almonds and 2 oz. of Unsweetened applesauce while microwaving!  Then once done, I added 2 oz. more of Applesauce and a Tbsp of PB on top so I could get some of each with each bite!  It was SOOOO good! Really!  I’ll definitely be doing this again!

I have my WW meeting this morning…..I’m kind of nervous because it’s my first weigh in since I haven’t been tracking.  I am sure I’ll be up, but that’s also because of hormones 🙂 and I did have a full breakfast this morning.  Usually I just have a latte before weigh in and then breakfast afterwards, but I didn’t want to stop 2 days in a row!  We shall see….as long as I don’t have to pay, I’ll be happy!
