I tried posting this entry last night but for some reason it wasn’t working so I’m posting it this morning instead.
I’ll be honest and say that this weekend was pretty much crap. I mentioned how I was supposed to visit a friend out of town on Saturday night? Yeah, that didn’t happen so a great big round of applause to the terrible winter weather conditions for that one.
I don’t know exactly why but from Saturday night on I was just in a funk. I’m not going to bother blabbing on about it because that’s no fun to read, so instead I’ll keep it simple and let my weekend eats up the brightness factor instead.
I mentioned how on Friday night I had a sweet potato with cottage cheese for dinner but I was too lazy to upload the photo. I did that now:
Topped with a mix of soy nut butter, SF maple syrup and a splash of almond milk. Plus half a kiwi to the side if you didn’t notice that big round green thing there.
I forgot my camera for my packed lunch at work but it wasn’t that exciting: a salad topped with cottage cheese, an apple, a homemade trail mix of nuts, raisins, dried pineapple and Guardian cereal and 1/3 of a leftover Peanut Toffee Buzz Clif bar.
For dinner there was lots of carb-y goodness going on:
Ravioli, garlic bread hot dog buns (they were on their way to stale so my mom garlic breaded em up!) and mashed cauliflower.
I ate quite a bite more of the garlic bread than that… shh.
And what better way to follow a hot carb-y meal on a cold and depressing winter night that ended up not going as planned at all and resulting in me staying in and doing absolutely nothing than having a bowl of ice cream.
Light Vanilla Ice Cream topped with “melted” frozen strawberries mixed with peanut butter and peanut butter granola.
I was so proud of myself for serving up a nice little bowl, putting the container away and enjoying it…
…then I went back and ate from the container. Okay, lies. I ate not only from the ice cream container but also from the peanut butter jar. I was bummed, okay?
But let’s forget about that moment (or entire night) of weakness and move on to
Today was a grocery shop day. Woohoo.
But before that was a much needed stomach grumbling settler. So I settled on this:
A blueberry waffle topped with peanut butter and banana slices. But where’s the other half?
But my entirely terrible short-term memory completely forgets which blog I saw this idea on last night. I apologize! I thought it was pretty genius though and knew that I needed to have it for breakfast this morning. So the other half of the waffle got submerged in half a cup of fat free plain yogurt. Mmms.
Then we grocery shopped. I bought a few “extras” for myself (that my mom deemed unnecessary and wasn’t willing to buy for me this time around… darn haha) Check em out:
Peanut Butter & Co White Chocolate Wonderful – pretty sure this one speaks for itself.
Amy’s Spinach Feta in a Pocket Sandwich – have never tried it, have heard nothing but good things about it, can’t wait to EAT it.
We got plenty of other groceries too but these ones were the beauties that came out of my well-worn wallet.
Summer Fresh Edamame Hummus!
I was beyond excited that I found this. And it was the last one! I love you edamame. I also love you greatly in hummus form. Geeeeenius.
OH. I forgot that I also found this bar that looked like it was worth trying. Eat Natural with macadamias, brazils and apricots. I had never seen these bars before but I saw several different kinds when we swung by Bulk Barn so I wanted to give it a go.
I’d say it is. Curious about the nutrition label?
The cals are 220. This will probably be eaten between classes tomorrow. We’ll see how it goes!
and a mini turkey and garden vegetable havarti sandwich on fresh multigrain loaf.
I munched on several squash fries once they were done.
Between lunch and supper I kind of studied. I didn’t seem to accomplish much though. My motivation is just completely shot in every way this weekend.
I had dinner. It was random. And very orange-y red… quite the angry-tempered dinner tonight.
Leftover pasta, the rest of the squash fries, leftover cauliflower and bread with edamame hummus.
I wasn’t hungry in the least but, as you know, I bought coconut yogurt and white chocolate wonderful today. There was no way those were going unopened.
I also munched on many a fresh juicy grape. Then I was even less hungry. No. Then I was stuffed.
Then I sort of studied. Then I shovelled. Then I studied some more.
I had every intention of working out tonight. Most especially because I didn’t last night. I hadn’t planned on it last night because I was supposed to be rushing out right after getting home from work to drive to visit my friend. But since that didn’t happen I was all thrown off. And then I was all blah and exercise was the last thing on my mind. So I needed to tonight. But I just could not do it. I had the biggest back and forth fight with myself, trying to somehow make myself do it. But I couldn’t.
Where are you energy? Where are you motivation?
Stupid weekend. I’m ready for a fresh week. Full of lots of… textbook reading.
Okay okay, I’m done grumbling. Time to sleep. Hope you all had a wonderful (and warm?) weekend!
