For breakfast I didn't have time or patience to have Corn Flakes or eggs, so I just was lazy and went to my comfort breakfast food,
1/3 cup of Oatmeal w/ 1 tsp cinnamon 1/2 tsp of nutmeg, a 1/2 a banana sliced and halved, w/ a splash of skim milk. 6 oz of O.J.
At the office things were pretty quiet Wednesday. It's Thursday that I am in and out of the office a lot. This is what I packed,
My homemade coffee (1 cup of coffee 1/4 cup of skim milk and 1 tsp of white sugar). My finger is showing you how much coffee I actually have in my travel mug. I also had 1/2 cup of Astro plain yogurt, 1/3 cup of Kellogs all bran buds and 4 strawberries.
Seriously this is going to be a boring blog, I really have nothing to chat about between my food. I made my Wednesday lunch Monday night after I got home from Step & Pump class. This is just because otherwise I would never have the time do make my lunch and dinners for Tuesday Wednesday (as I am out of the house at 5:40am - 8:30pm). On the left is my wrap when I made it Monday night, all laid out and looking nice and delicious. On the right is my wrap wrapped up, and for obvious reasons you can't see whats in it . . . . cuz it's wrapped up, lol.
The wrap was 1 tbsp of Summer Fresh garlic hummus, 3 slices of shaved deli chicken, 1/2 cup of baby spinach, 1/2 cup of spring mix, and 1/4 of a red pepper wrapped in an Old ElPaso tortilla. Sided with 1/2 cup of red grapes and 1/2 of a royal gala apple.
I packed myself one snack, but I clearly haven't learned yet when packing my lunches that I need more calories to get me through the day with the deficit after burning calories while at the gym in the morning. I had to resort back to my I.C.E (In Case of Emergency) snack in my desk.
I packed 1/4 red pepper and 8 baby carrots. I had to dig out my Kashi Chewy Granola Bar - Peanut Peanut Butter flavour (I've learned I love the 7 grain almond ones, glad I don't keep them in my desk)
I was very excited for dinner. Mainly because I did not make it. The rice, well yeah I did make that, that is left overs from Monday night, but the rest, the rest was made by Kevin. I asked him ever so nicely that seeing as he was going to be home as of 4/4:30ish, if he could be ever so kind as to broil me and steam me some dinner. He obliged me. Thank you dear!
