Monday, Again

I woke up late yesterday, it made the entire mornng hectic. I hadn’t taken the time the night before to get anything ready and I was really rushing around because of it. But, hey, that is how Monday’s are, right? For breakfast, I settled into a bowl of mixed grain hot cereal (oats, wheatberries and bulgur). I topped it with a saucer peach. some ground flax seed and some almond butter. I also had a glass of milk on the side. I didn’t really like the saucer peach, something about the texture. This is bad news because I still have 2 left.

After breakfast, I zoomed out the door and headed to work. Traffic sucked, I ended up being late but I guess that was coming. I knew the day would be busy but as soon as I got there, The Pro gave me another project that he needed by early afternoon. On top of that, the club was open because we had a tournament so it wasn’t quiet like a normal Monday. By mid morning I was hungry for a snack and had some english cukes and hummus. I really like the english cukes better than the regular one, I guess because of the seeds. They also taste a bit crisper to me.

Around noon, I was ready for lunch. I brought the leftever oven omelet, some okios greek yogurt with fresh raspberries and I ordered a slice of multi-grain toast from the kitchen. The multi-grain here is THE BEST healthy bread I have ever had. It is made from 100% whole grains, no trans fat or HFCS. It cost the club almost $7 for a 16 slice loaf and if I could figure out how to score some of my own, I would. It has a nice nutty, grainy and mildly sweet flavor that really comes out when toasted. It is fabulous. It went along nicely with the rest of my lunch. I actually enjoyed the oven omelet more than I did the first time.

With all of the work I had going on, the afternoon wizzed by. Before I knew it, it was time to head out. By the time I got home, I had an outragious headache. I prepared dinner but was having a hard time focusing. Thankfully, it was an easy peasy kind of dinner. I made 100% whole wheat cheese tortellini with pesto and a salad with mixed green, hanover tomatoes and some garlic seasoned rice vinegar. And since I have been trying to have well rounded meals that incorporate something sweet, I decided to try a pluot as well. And for the second time in one day, I did not like the new fruit. What is up with that?

After dinner, the headache kind of became a dull ache so we decided to go ahead and go to yoga class. It was vinyasa with Cheryl, my favorite class. After a few rounds of sun salutations and some intense flows my head felt like a balloon. Every forward fold was torture. I finally decided to just stand while the class finished. My head was pounding, my eyes hurt, my jaws hurt and the dull ache had turned into full blown pain over my entire head. By the time the class was over all I could think about was getting to bed. And as soon as I got home, that is exactly what I did.

  1. Ahh, Mondays – they always seem to be hectic, don’t they?? Let’s hope it’s Friday sooner rather than later ;0)

    Hope your headache is gone!!

  2. Thanks, VeggieGirl! The headache isn’t gone, sadly 😦 I may resort to taking something which I generally try to avoid but I may have to.

  3. Hope you’re feeling better today, C!

  4. Hope you feel better today!

    And my, that is some expensive bread!

  5. Your hot cereal looks great. Did it take a long time to make?

  6. Thanks everyone!

    Blueberry, I make really large batches (about a months worth) and then vaccuum seal and freeze in individual servings. The large batch takes about 1.5 hours to make. First I cook the wheatberries in my rice cooker, that takes about an hour. Then I combine the cooked wheatberries with rolled oats and bulgur and cook for about 20 to 30 more mins. I use water to cook all of it. I have tried milk but milk doesn’t stand up to long cooking times like that.

    Then, I thaw it overnight and pop in the micro with a little milk for 2.5 mins. And there we have a fast long cooked breakfast 🙂

  7. Mmmmmmmmm….that bread looks fabulous! Of course, I am a bit hungry right now. 🙂

  8. That pesto looks so good!

  9. that bread sounds delicious, i’m sure you cook make some yourself that tastes just as good, if not better ?! the tortellini looks divine 🙂
