House Hunters

All day I kept thinking that it was Thursday, when it was actually only Wednesday. This has been quite a busy and long week…I need some R & R! Besides being a little stressed, I had quite the productive day. Breakfast was coffee, dark, sweet cherries (love these!), 1 cup low fat plain yogurt, and 1/2 cup Kashi Go Lean Crunch.

Breakfast

I love finishing off a container of yogurt – so fun to use the big tub as a bowl :-)

I managed to fit in a quickie gym visit at lunch – 30 minutes of intervals on the elliptical (I alternated 1 minute fast with a few minutes recovery), foam rolling,Β and 3 x 10 lunges. Short and sweet!

Lunch was the usual salad – eaten at my desk because of back-to-back conference calls.

  • romaine, carrots, mushrooms, onions
  • spoonfuls of baked beans and pinto bean salad
  • spoonful of artichoke and olive salad
  • spoonful of sun dried tomato-pasta salad
  • piece of pesto cauliflower
  • feta cheese
  • whole grain croutons
  • Tbs balsamic vinaigrette

Yum! There were lots of varied flavors, textures, and colors in this lunch. It kept my taste buds guessing :-)

I had a wicked headache all afternoon, so I took to advils along with a skim cappuccino and some trail mix. It helped a little bit.

After work, Alma and I had an appointment with a broker. Why are brokers always so sketchy?? Anyway, I knew it was going to be a long night so I grabbed another handful of trail mix from a 25 cent machine. This was actually really great trail mix! I might try to re-create the combo of peanuts, cashews, m&ms, and raisins at home.

We braved the rain to look at an apartment uptown- it was decent, but we’re still searching for the right place.

When I got home I made myself a little pomegranate juice cocktail – 1/2 cup POM Wonderful juice + 1 cup lime seltzer. Mmm, antioxidants!

Dinner was another pita pizza – whole wheat flatbread topped with fresh mozzarella, feta cheese, zucchini, green pepper, and basil. Next time I might put marinara sauce on this. It was tasty, but it needed a little somethin’ extra.Β  It was super filling though – I love cheese and veggies!

Zucchini!

For dessert Nate and I finished off the last of the peach cardamom pie, served with vanilla ice cream, of course!
