I look forward to writing these evening posts…. :-)

I hope everyone had a wonderful day. The sun was out here so that perked my mood right up! Today was a great day healthwise and as a result I feel great!

Food Re-Cap

*Breakfast was a nice big bowl of cinnamon oats and oatbran at work with a large cup of Timmy’s coffee. I’ve said it before and I will say it again: I love oatmeal. It tastes wonderful. It keeps me full. It’s the perfect breakfast!

The oats kept me so full all morning long. No morning snack was required! 🙂

*Before leaving for work this morning, I made some time to whip together a lunch! Lunch brought from home is so much better than anything you can purchase. I was glad I took the extra few minutes to throw something together. I took a Dempster’s Spinach Wrap and smacked on a layer of Fat Free Miracle Whip. I added some turkey breast, baby spinach, chopped tomatoes, chopped green peppers and onion sprouts. It was soooooooooo tasty! Yum yum! I also had some baby carrots to go with it to add some more veggies to the meal.

*My lunch held me over for a long time. Perhaps it was from all the junk food I ate yesterday. :-p I wanted an afternoon snack before I headed for the gym. I also wanted some fruit so I pulled out a nice, juicy grapefruit.  It was juicy. It was sweet. It was the perfect snack.

Work-Out Re-cap

Work was pretty quiet today so I managed to slip out at 4pm to go to the gym. Yay! I love going in the afternoon. I felt well enough to run again. I surprisely suffered no pain from the Vancouver Half-Marathon.

Run Stats: 1 Hour, 6.52 Miles, Average Pace: 9:11 Min/Mil

Not too shabby for just having run a half-marathon 2 days ago!

*Because I left my desk early in the afternoon, I had to stick around a little after my workout. I calmed my rumbling belly with a juicy, sweet pear  and the Melissa’s Bar of Love- YouBar I created. That bar is amazing. See previous post describing them. (Can someone please educate me on how I link back to posts??? Would really appreciate it!)

my creation!

*I wanted to be a little creative with dinner since I wasn’t ravenous when I walked through the door. I also wanted to use up some of the things I had the refridgerator including the Yves Veggie Cuisine Veggie Chicken Burgers I had.

The first thing I did was chop up some onions, green peppers and one of the veggie burger patties.

I then threw these chopped goodies into a pan with olive oil cooking spray. I added some frozen peas and corn. And of course some garlic and sea salt spices.

I wanted to add some other lovely things to the meal so I steamed some cauliflower and broccoli and “Added Some Personality” by smearing the veggies with Cheese Whiz. I threw together a salad with baby spinach, chopped cucumbers, tomatoes, onion sprouts topped with Kraft Raspberry Vinagrette. My hunger got the best of me so I also included a piece of whole wheat cheesy bread  and a big, beautiful carrot. I can’t get enough of the carrots lately!

look at my creation!

This meal was so very satisfying! The tastes worked so well together!

A side note: When I was in Vancouver I picked up some great new plates and bowls!  I also picked up a few more today! I love seeing other peoples’ dishware on their blogs! I am so excited to use all the new dishes I got so they can add to my blog! The picture above is one of the new plates! Unfortunately, I made so much food, you can barely see it. :-p

As I typed this I snacked on a Chocolate Fix which contained my belove coconut.  It’s basically a maccaroon in a container. I love them! I have to seriously make up my own batch of maccaroons!

mmmm so good

Now I must get ready to take the puppies out. 🙂 Have a fabulous evening!!
