Monday. A new week begins. Nothing overly noteworthy happened today at all. But it was still a pretty decent day. Nice and WARM. So far we’ve had a lovely fall beginning. Some years fall gets freezing SO early. This year the temperatures have been more or less great. I love it.
And I got my midterm marks back. And they were actually a lot better than I thought they would be. I really didn’t expect to do well on any of them. At all. So that was a nice way to start off the week.
Anyway, breakfast was inspired by Sharon. The other day she had a bowl of yogurt with granola and raspberries for breakfast. It looked delish and since I had just got some fresh raspberries and Peanut Butter Granola while grocery shopping yesterday, it seemed like the perfect breakfast to have today.
And it was. Raspberries are so photogenic.
I went to class. Came home. Snacked on some cottage cheese. Updated my Ipod. Ran on the treadmill. Showered. Had lunch.
Then more class.
Then dinner. But before dinner I had a small piece of rye toasted and topped with light ricotta and Ragu. I thought I was disenchanted with ricotta since the last (and first actually) time I tried it I wasn’t a fan, but I decided to give it another go and THIS time around I pretty much love it. Maybe it’s just this brand that is great, or the other brand that was crap. Either way, I’m a fan.
Then for actual dinner I had a wrap stuffed with mashed chickpeas and some premade mexican fiesta dip we bought (which is just layers of sour cream, refried beans, salsa and guac… yuuuum), lettuce and tomatoes. I ate half of this in its wrapped form but for the second half I just dumped it onto the plate. It was falling out anyway and the wrap wasn’t incredibly fresh.
Then for some sweetness, I finished off the last of a banana protein powder smoothie I made the other day that I couldn’t finish so I froze the remainders. I also had a small piece of the banana bread I made from the last post.
But I still wanted more sweet. So I had a small date stuffed with peanut butter chips then heated in the microwave, along with a cup of vanilla flavour instant coffee. The stuffed date was completely sweetly deelish.
And now I’m trying to get some work done. Trying.
