Happy Belated St. Patty’s! Sorry for the late post but I wasn’t exactly up for blogging last night, as you will soon see :)
Wednesday morning, I had the usual yogurt mess for breakfast. Sadly, I was still out of Kashi and had finished up the biscuits, so I was stuck with Fiber One for crunch. Not the same!! Now that I am used to my Honey Almond Flax, nothing else compares…
For lunch, I heated up a Lean Cuisine pepperoni pizza, with added mushrooms and red onion. Pretty tasty!
I also had some bright green grapes. AH grapes!
After lunch, I was craving chocolate. Luckily I keep the office well stocked! I had a piece of Dove dark chocolate and some diet hot cocoa.
Dove told me to laugh :)
I STILL had the munchies, so I had my afternoon snack extra early.
By the end of the afternoon, I wanted to snack some more but knew I probably shouldn’t eat again so I just held out until after the gym. I did 40 minutes on the elliptical before heading home to get ready for a fun night out!! For dinner, I had some broccoli with S+P and a bowl of mango.
ANNNNND CEREAL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I didn’t think I could face another day without Kashi in my yogurt, so I stocked up on some more, plus some Fresh & Easy organic O’s…and then Julia brought me some PB Puffins! This bowl was heaven :)
So good in fact, that I had to have a little more.
After eating, Julia and I got decked out in green and went out to celebrate the holiday! It was sort of last minute, but we couldn’t justify NOT going out I guess. We started with a shot of JD at the apt and then walked to Barney’s Beanery.
The place was packed, as was expected, but with lame guys, which was not what we wanted! We stayed for one green-colored drink and then walked up to the Sunset Strip. We passed bar after bar but none seemed quite right…we were about to head back home when we spotted Bar Marmont! Score! This bar is next to Chateau Marmont, the swanky celeb hotel, and is very pretty. The ceiling is covered in little butterflies :) Here is a picture I found online to give you an idea!
So we upgraded from Barney’s and were treated to many green drinks the rest of the night. Perhaps one too many rounds was bought for us? Because when we got home, I crawled into bed with this guy —
Yes, I got this box last night and it is halfway gone!! In fact, I had been planning on including some Puffins in my yogurt mess but ate soooo many that the thought of more just wasn’t appealing. I know, can you believe it?! Puffin-overload aside, this was a good breakfast! Mango and kashi are two of my faves.
We had a loooong client meeting and I was super hungry by the time we got to eat. Lunch today was a can of Progresso Minestrone soup and 1 serving Kashi cheddar crackers.
Plus a Granny Smith apple w/cinnamon and a piece of watermelon & pineapple.
I was hungry again early today and had my afternoon snack not long after lunch. Since we had fruit and breakfast items at our meeting but I had already eaten, I held back but snagged two of these yummy PB rollups. Made with whole wheat tortilla, natural PB, dried cranberries, and golden raisins, these are office favorites and always the first to go!
We got out of work an hour early today (whoohoo!!!) because President Obama is in LA and speaking at the hotel right near my office. Since they closed down the road leading into our office complex, we had to peace out early to avoid being blocked in. Sadly, the roads are also supposed to be closed 8-10 tomorrow, meaning I have to get into work by 7:30. AND I have a work event tomorrow too, of which I am partly in charge, so tomorrow is looking like a 7:30 AM – 10 PM kind of day. Ick!!! Anyway, we all raced out as soon as our boss gave the all clear and I rolled down the windows and took in some sun! Doesn’t CA just make you happy??
I went to the gym for 60 minutes on the elliptical, then headed home for The Biggest Loser and this yummy salad.
I also munched on some frozen edamame while watching (haha you can see it in the background!).
For dinner, I was dying to try Wholly Guacamole 100-calorie packs that I picked up at the grocery store a few days ago. I am not always the biggest fan of 100-cal packs simply because I’d rather just portion out a serving myself than pay top dollar for pre-made baggies, but guac is one thing that is VERY hard for me to eat the “right” amount.
I ended up going simple: Two 50-cal La Tortilla Factory tortillas, 1/2 cup black beans, 1/3 cup shredded cheddar cheese & one 100-cal serving guac. Here’s half!
The guacamole was sooooooo good! I definitely think I will be buying these again. I ate the other serving after running a few errands, sort of a dinner part 2 since I knew I would be hungry again. Now I am finishing up a mug of rooibos tea and some stray mango cubes from the ones I just cut for breakfast…
It’s gonna be a long one tomorrow!! The event will hopefully be fun though; it’s my first one with this current job, so I’m a little nervous and excited. Maybe I can even take some good pictures under the guise of taking them for the client :)
Have a great Thursday!! SO CLOSE to the WEEKEND!!!!
