Busy Bee

Whoa. I have been a busy little bee. After breakfast yesterday, the dear husband and I did lots of housework, laundry and food prep. For lunch, I had a grilled cheese on a sandwich thin

and a small bowl of Amy’s Low in Sodium Cream of tomato soup drizzled with olive oil.

Seriously, I think the sandwich thins are the greatest invention since sliced bread 🙂 I adore them and am so happy to have finally found them!

After lunch, we met my friend, Becky, for a Body Pump class at the gym followed by a half hour run on the treadmill. It was my first time taking the class and I really enjoyed it. I am very new to weight training so it was really helpful to have someone telling me and showing me what to do.  I am pretty sore today so I think it got in a great workout despite going light on the weights. On the way home from the gym, the dear husband and I shared a coconut larabar. It escaped the camera but I am v. sure you guys know what they look like.

Once home, I popped the bean burrito casserole that I prepped earlier into the oven. After a long hot shower, dinner was ready! I started off with a big salad because my veg intake was severly lacking for the day. On the salad was spring mix, tomatoes, red pepper and cukes. I topped it off with italian seasoning, garlic, sea salt and oil and vinegar.

After I filled my veggie quota, I had a small portion of the bean burrito casserole topped with sour cream, salsa, and cilantro. It was pretty good but it had TJ’s roasted corn in it that kinda tasted like an ash tray smells. Needless to say, I won’t be buying that again but I will make the casserole again using regular corn. Stay tuned for the recipe!

After dinner, I had a little pudding cup with a squirt of whipped cream. We spent the rest of the evening reading before bed.

Next thing I knew, it was morning! I started off with a cafe au lait and then had a whole wheat english muffin with sunflower seed butter for breakfast.

Then, while waiting for Monday lunch to arrive, I had a mini apple pie larabar. And like VeggieGirl, I sure wish they sold the minis in stores!

And that brings us to lunch, The Pro picked up Firebird’s salad. I had a mixed greens salad with grilled salmon. It was a little more bland than usual but I still enjoyed it.

Now, it is back to work for me. Catch ya later!
