After yesterday, I decided that I would have a new attitude today and make it super productive. I know I mentioned that I had a moment of feeling sorry for myself, but after the fabulous morning most of my day was like that. A lot of it was just having to study and feeling like I was missing out on soo much at home. It was Karen's (Ben's mom, my future mother-in-law) birthday yesterday and I thought I was gonna get to be home for it. I absolutely love birthdays and making them soo special for people and I was so sad I couldn't be there. I got to be at her surprise party last year and was so bummed I couldn't be there for this one. HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY KAREN! I missed you on your birthday! Hopefully I'll be able to celebrate a little next weekend. Plus, today was Tony's (Ben's dad, my future father-in-law) first half marathon. I am soo happy for him and his big accomplishment! I wanted to be there soo bad at the finish line for him. I know how much it means to have people at the end for you and I wish I could have been there. Anyway, enough complaining, but just wanted to set y'all up for how I viewed today.
Go Tony!! Congrats to Karen and Katie who participated in the 5K!
I was so excited to find the Weight Watchers cooking magazine I purchased a while back in my car while I was cleaning on Friday. I started looking at all the delicious recipes yesterday and the breakfasts inspired mine this morning.
You can't tell because of the bowl but I made a parfait.
In the bowl:
-vanilla light & fit yogurt
I alternated kashi, strawberries, yogurt, kashi, blueberries, yogurt. It was perfect! I immediately wanted to go to Target and look for parfait glasses. On the way to church I snacked on this...
This was my fabulous find the other day at H-E-B. It is freeze-dried fruit and is soo soo good! The pineapple is my favorite. Church was great this morning and put me in a much better mood. My tummy was rumbling after church, but I wanted to go ahead and knock out some errands so I put off lunch for about an hour and a half. I had a very successful (minus finding parfait glasses) trip to Target and H-E-B. If you know where there are some cute parfait glasses let me know....I'm in the market. Target did have some super cute summery plates and cups that were definitely in my basket until I remembered that I have showers coming up and I should wait. Cannot wait to stock the kitchen!!
I think my favorite find on my errands were these Archer Farms blue corn chips with flax seed. Holy Yum!!!
My lunch was more snacky since I was working on lots of papers, so these were featured with some El Fenix salsa followed by a pink lady apple. After a lot of working I decided I needed a sweat session so I headed to the SLC. Of course I grabbed a protein bar first...
These were a new find and a new favorite. I seriously felt like I was just eating a Butterfinger. MMMM!! They also only have 2g of sugar but still 15g of protein. Success!
The rest of the night was pretty uneventful with some cereal, group project meeting and more school work. Booo!! I'm looking forward to my date with the treadmill tomorrow morning in aerobic running class. I've been looking for new treadmill routines to keep things interesting. I'm also thinking of trying something else new. I always eat something before I workout, but have thought about just having a piece of fruit and then refueling with a good breakfast after the workout. How do you handle morning workout sessions? Do you eat pre or post? I might have to delay the experiment for Wednesday because I'm thinking of not coming home in between classes, but I'll let you know if I do it on Wednesday.
Hope you have a great Monday!!
