…Come again another day

January 12, 2011

Ok so I still don’t love snow or the cold or the anxiety I get about shoveling my car out without it hitting something or getting stuck in the middle of the road. My the storm last night that caused a delayed start at work let me have a gloriously productive morning!

I woke up around 6:20 am anxious about how much snow I was going to have to deal with and if/ when I had to get myself to work. When I found out we didn’t have to go in until 10 am I laid in bed until 7. I wish I had slept but I couldn’t really fall back asleep because I was still unsure how the Manayunk roads would be (notoriously awful). Anyway I got up and(fitness) did Jillian Michaels 6 week 6 pack on demand. Then I went out and shoveled my stoop and the sidewalk in front of my house and my car out. I am counting this as fitness. I had to bend to use the tiny shovel I have and jump to reach my SUV to get the snow off.

Afterward I showered and did and load of laundry while getting ready for work. I felt very productive.

I had some extra time so I made breakfast at home.


French Toast

-1 c egg beaters
-sprinkle cinnamon
-2 pieces of wonder while grain white
-butter spray
-salt

I like my French Toast really eggy and more on the savory side then sweet. I added the cinnamon to the egg beaters for that touch of sweet. I dipped the bread in and made sure it was super saturated. Then I fried it up with some Pam cooking spray. When it’s done I spritz with butter spray and salt.

Steamy!


This was deliciously eggy and salty and cinnamony. Perfect. I actually don’t even like French toast unless it’s prepared like this. Filling yet only about 300 calories. I wish I had time to make breakfast at home more often. I also I highly suggest making this with whole wheat raisin bread as well or any fruit filled bread (high diet whole wheat o’ course).

On the see I had some of my remaining silk nog from the holidays that I diluted with milk.


Since I ate breakfast at 9 I wasn’t hungry for a snack but when lunch came around I was ready. I had the sesame chicken lean cuisine which I know I’ve blogged about before. I love this one. Awesome breaded chicken, sweet sauce, chewy noodles. Addition of goya…Mmm.


Right out of the box:


Mixed up:


By the way there was a Philly Dealyo today for Diet-to-Go. Which is unhealthy meal service. It was $45 for 5 days worth of meals. I signed up because I thought it would be cool to try and write about it on here. You have to pick up your food on a Tues or Fri and you get 3 meals totally 1200 calories. I will probably try it out next month.

My snacks throughout the afternoon were 2 oranges and 10 cocoa roasted almonds. I didn’t take a picture since these have been my snacks all week and thus so uncreative. Although, my snacks are never really creative.

I had to get dinner at the Wells Fargo Center since I basically went right from work. We went McFaddens at the ball park and I tired to be good but it didn’t work out too well. I ordered the roast beef sandwich without cheese and a side salad instead of fries. When it came out it had fries though and I couldn’t help but eat them.


I also meant to stop at half the sandwich but that went down too (I was rather hungry by the time we got there… Healthiness no no. I was ravenous). I also had a bunch of Chris’ french onion soup.


Oh and a blue moon. Delicious but bad night.


Anyway nova beat Louisville and thus it made for a good night.


Only would be better if tomorrow was Friday and I didn’t have 2 more days until the weekend. :( goodnight.


Busy= missing posts

December 10, 2010

Back tracking to Thursday… It was super busy. Another all day meeting.

Started the day with oats.

Cheesy pear oats

-1/2 c multi grain
-1/8 c steel cut
-1/4 c ricotta (end of the cheeeeeeese so I ate it in the container)
-pinch salt
-pumpkin pie spice
-sweet n low packet
-half pear
-water

Lunch was a horrible experience. I took one sandwich that ended up being covered in dressing.. Nightmare. I switched it out for this ham and cheese on rye with mustard.

Pear side:

I ended up removing some of the bread when I realize it might be honey mustard dressing on it. I also got rid of some of the cheese, you couldn’t taste it on the sandwich anyway.

The leftovers:

Some chips… So hard to resist.

Banana for a snack before the holiday party.

At the holiday party I had 3 hor devours that I didn’t get pics of. I would have eaten more but I was busy being the company photographer. A bacon wrapped scallop… Awesome. A cheesesteak spring roll…awesome. salmon and cream cheese lollipop… Awful. Waaaay to much cream cheese… it was all you could taste.

Dinner plate:

-tilapia
-green beans
-eggplant and roasted tomato
-mashed po-tots

The dinner food was excellent. It was the best of our company holiday party that I have attended. For dessert o had a small pumpkin bread thing.. I was not too happy about this, i am pumpkined put this season and an awesome peanut torte bite thing. It was creamy and had peanut pieces in a delicious crusty shell.

Throughout the night I had 2 glasses of merlot. Managed to sneak a pic of one:

At the after party at Iron Hill Brewery I had a raspberry wheat beer that was great. Need to go back there for a tasting.
