We didn’t end up getting home last night from our volleyball game till around 11:30pm…and I didn’t get home till after midnight. I’m extremely tired today and just want to go back home and go to sleep. I’m kinda thinking about leaving work a little early but we will see. After work I just plan on going home, taking a nap, cleaning the house, maybe exercise a little and then relax. Mike has a football game tonight so I will be on my own for dinner.

For breakfast I had instant oatmeal with a big banana and some cranberry granola on top. I didn’t have time to make my lunch so I’m probably going to get something, I was thinking a sandwich. 🙂


Good mornin’ September 11, 2008

Today I’m leaving work at 1:00pm for a volleyball game in Tehachapi and probably won’t be home until 10pm. Since it’s such a far game we will be having a meal stop…meaning fast food. 😦

For breakfast I had instant oatmeal with:

  • tbs or 2 of flax
  • 1 large banana
  • tbs of almond butter
  • lil bit of cranberry granola

Check out the huge zucchini. It was left on my desk for me this morning…thanks Cristina! 🙂

A different kind of oats September 9, 2008

This morning I used the oats that I got from Trader Joe’s the other day. They were good but a little more grainy. Today is our first volleyball game and I think the girls are pretty nervous. It’s only a scrimmage though. Our first game is at 4:00pm and our second game will be at 6:00pm. This means that I will be home late tonight, so I will probably be making something quick for dinner tonight unless Mike decides to cook.

I was up late last night watching the stupid VMAs. Ughhh…they were horrible. I couldn’t stand the host, he was awful. But I kept watching and hoping that Britney was going to perform. Oh well, at least she won three awards. Anyways, my weekend was horrible…food wise. I don’t know what it is but during the week I do so good but soon as Friday hits I go into a fat ass mode and just want to eat and consume a lot of alcohol. This is my biggest problem! So for this weekend I want to see if I can go without the alcohol and fast food.

Oh yeah, I forgot to mention that I was doing a weight loss challenge…you can find it here: http://onebodylifechance.wordpress.com/2008/09/03/challenge/

So on to my Monday morning…I didn’t really feel like eating this morning, probably due to the over consumption of food over the weekend. But I had a pear and Larabar. Now I know what all the rage is about with these bars. They are so freakin good!!!!! A little high in calories, but good.

For lunch I made a salad with sprouts, bell pepper, cucumber, carrots, zucchini with the best miso caeser dressing ever. On the side I had some soybeans.



mmmm…chocolate in my oats September 3, 2008

I can’t believe it but I forgot my cell phone at home 😦 So during lunch I think I’m going to drive home to get it. Today for breakfast I had oatmeal. The combo was:

  • 1/2 oats
  • tbs flax
  • tbs almond butter
  • few sprinkles of dark chocolate chips

I also had an iced coffee with skim milk and a tad of splenda. Hopefully I can watch one of the movies today if I’m not too busy.

  • tbs of dark chocolate chips
