Wow, I was completely floored by all of your comments on my last post. When I asked what you liked best about my blog, I really was hoping to just get some feedback as to what you come here to read and see so that I wouldn’t continue to bore the pants off you for the next year, but truly , I did not expect all of the wonderful things that you said!! *blush* THANK YOU. Really. For taking the time to comment, for coming here to read my babbling and for sharing “my table” with me :)
Breakfast was the first thing on my mind this morning! I took out a Ginger Apple Oat Breakfast Cookie from the freezer, nuked it for 20 seconds and decided it needed a topping. I waffled back on forth about trying the Barney Butter on it and finally just went for it! I added one tbsp. as my “icing”…
Awesome! I liked the ginger/almond butter combo! Now, I have a way to use up that $9.50 jar!
I had to trade the gym this morning for a workout at my parents’ house! Well, I wasn’t planning it to be a workout. I was going over to help with more home improvement projects and cleanout (they are preparing to sell their house). But, heavy box lifting, squats, cleaning mirrors, sweeping and running up and down steps 400,000 times can definitely count for some kind of workout! My gluteus maximus was a little sore by the end of the day!
and an open faced turkey and cheese with spicy brown mustard…
I helped with a few more things, then left with a carful of items to drop off at Goodwill (Dad, you don’t miss that 70’s disco picture still, do you???) :)
I was home for all of about 20 minutes before having to head back out with little daughter for religion class. I had to volunteer in the office during that time and made sure to bring my snack with me. But didn’t get to eat it. There was a whirlwind of stuff for me to accomplish, so I didn’t have time to get to it, but my stomach was letting me know it was NOT happy.
When we got home, I got right to making dinner. I found myself looking for snacks. I got that panicky feeling of “ I have to eat something”. I noshed on a couple pretzels while prepping dinner and knew I was should stop because I felt close to the edge of binging on a bunch of stuff; I was getting in that zone. I stopped for a second, came into the moment and said to myself, “I am not going to starve to death. I can wait a few more minutes until dinner is ready.” And a sense of relief came over me. I realized, yes, I am hungry, but no, I will not die of starvation if I have to wait another 10 minutes for dinner. Whew, disaster avoided :)
And I got to enjoy a dinner of Mexican “Baked” (micro) Potato topped with black beans, salsa and Cabot’s 75% reduced fat cheddar cheese and a side salad with Kraft Light Three Cheese Ranch dressing…
So Good! And definitely tastes better when you’re hungry ;P

ONE GOOD THING: Not giving in to my overwhelming desire to eat the house down while cooking dinner!
Have a great day!
