Still working :(

It's past 10pm and I'm still working :( I'm going to make this post quick. There was no workout today (obviously!) and my night ended with a little too many chocolate covered edamames (damn stress!). Hopefully I can get my work wrapped up quickly though and get to bed. Tomorrow is Friday so that's always good! :D


I purchased some peanut butter puffins yesterday and could not wait to incorporate them into my breakfast! This breakfast looks very bland (and orange!) but it was actually very delicious. I think I've become a little nut butter addict :D In the container you see 3/4 c yogurt, 1/4 c pumpkin, 1 T pumpkin butter, 1 T crunchy peanut butter + about 1/2 c pb puffins.


I kept lunch simple today - there is very little cooking this week in my kitchen, if you haven't noticed already. I made a quick sandwich with 1/4 avocado, 1 slice of turkey (last one), 1 thin slice of Land O' Lakes white American cheese and enjoyed it with 1/2 cup of Pacific Natural Foods cashew carrot ginger soup (I think that's the name!). The soup was quite intense. The 1/2 cup was plenty! It was a very nice combo with the sandwich though.

Oh, this is the turkey we buy:


Another chocolate craving satisfied with my new love (picture reused):

And later on... the best baked good I've ever made! :D It is so.freaking.good!

And this guys jumped into my mouth at some point...


I got home pretty late and knew there was a big chance I would have to do some work again. So to give myself a little time to relax, I grabbed dinner at UFood. I just love having this place across the street! I got one of my favorites: chicken chop cobb salad which consists of mixed greens, cucumbers, tomatoes, turkey bacon, low fat cheddar cheese, lite sour cream and "fried" (baked) chicken. I dressed it with 1 tablespoon of Newman's Own reduced fat honey mustard dressing. Yum!


And then my boss called and I had to get back to work and I grabbed some "work buddies". A serving of my favorite trail mix (I missed it!):

Some more puffins:

And as mentioned before, a bunch of chocolate covered edamames that are not pictured here.

Total calories: 2520 :( Can the weekend begin yet?

Hope your week is less stressful! It's almost Friday... and then the weekend!!! Yay!

Wow it's amazing how those calories sneak in there! That didn't seem like 2520 calories when I was reading through it--at least they are all healthy calories ;) Love turkey and avo combo!

Yummy breakfast! I love PB puffins! What kind of trail mix is that? It looks delicious!

Elina said...

Yeah, it was the after dinner snacks - chocolate covered edamames = 700 calories + trail mix = 150 calories, that will do it! Definitely feeling the effects today.
The trailmix is TJ's nutty american trek mix - it's the best!
