Hello friends! My days have been filled lately with work, errands, work, Easter prep, and work! Whew! I hope everyone had a Happy Easter Sunday!

It began VERY early it seemed for us.  Like it was Christmas Big girl comes in our room at barely 7 am to ask if it was time to see if the Easter Bunny had come! Ha! I had to go wake up Baby girl just so we could see!

They had a blast! Not only did the Easter Bunny find our house, but Pepaw came armed with donuts and baskets, and my Mom too! We now have enough candy and chocolate bunnies to feed a small army!!

I did not partake in the donut massacre, but lots of coffee ensued, in an Easter mug though to keep it festive.  Some toast with strawberry preserves and an egg and sausage stuffed thingy was my breakfast.

Lunch yesterday was simple and easy because we were having my Mom and Eddie over for dinner.

I had brussels, broccoli both steamed a slice of toast with my newest fav…Almond butter!  Wow!  This stuff is good!   I LOVE almonds but the cost of almond butter has always prevented me from buying some.  I got a jar on sale this week at the store though!  So good!

Dinner was my Mom’s eggplant parmesan.  She made it with sliced eggplant, chicken breast, provolone, and alfredo sauce!  Yummy!

B and I contributed with roasted veggies (potatoes, summer sqaush, and fresh green beans) and of course deviled eggs!

We ended the evening by going on a family walk around the neighborhood and blowing bubbles in the front yard!  It was an awesome day!

Breakfast this Monday morning was multi grain hot cereal, with strawberries and almond butter:

When I got to work, I discovered my Ipod was dead!  Fail!  Sux to work out in the TV-less gym with no tunes!!  So I went on an outdoor 1 mile walk/run!  I am no hero so in my little 20 minutes I get each morning I just did the 1 mile and was happy!  Go me!

I had a cup of Fage 0% and Naturals Honeyful Wheat cereal.

Lunch was a partial repeat from yesterday except no toast, but I added carrots.

Mmmm, mustard sprouts!

My afternoon snacking was a small Red Delicious and a hard-boiled egg.

I’m sure my co-workers were thrilled with the smells of my broccoli, brussel sprouts, and egg today!

Dinner was also a repeat from yesterday!  Leftovers!

I think I will get ready for bed though and call it a night tonight!  We leave for OKC this weekend for Big Girl’s Tae Kwan Do tournament!  I am looking forward to the mini-cation that will present itself while we’re gone!  Road Trip!!!

Good evening to all who read my blog!  I am on my way to veg on the sofa for a night of mindless TV with hubby I think.  I hope I fall asleep on the couch for a little while too.  Does anyone else find that to be some of the most awesome sleep ever?  Couch nap!

It was defiantly a Monday.  Nothing exciting.  It rained.  Bah!  Now, I LOVE the rain, especially crazy thunderstorms, but I am just so ready for Spring I could scream!!  I need the sun.  I am such a positive person that all the negative energy that this gloomy cold winter has drenched people in around me is starting to wear on my core.

If I could choose one pet peeve that I can’t stand the most is pessimism.  Grumpy for no reason, furrowed browed, unapproachable, pessimistic, people.  For God’s sake people…BE HAPPY!

Can you tell I have a case of the Monday’s?

My eats:

Last night I made Tofu for the first time.  Looks good huh?  It didn’t taste bad, just a little bland.  I have to work on my technique.  Suggestions?

A side of sweet potato with cinnamon.

My dessert was a yogurt mess made up of Dannon plain greek yogurt, Kashi Heart to Heart Warm Cinnamon, and a few chocolate chips mixed together.

Oh, and B and I had a lunch date yesterday that led us to Firehouse Subs where I ordered the veggie sub.  It was made with sautéed mushrooms, grilled onion, bell pepper, lettuce and tomato.  It also came with like 3 kinds of VERY greasy cheese that I removed about half of because well, it was pretty oily.

This morning I tried something new.  Crumpets!

I had bought a pack of crumpets at the grocery store this weekend and decided to try them out this morning.  I opened this package of fat-free 60 calorie crumpets and threw one in the toaster while I cooked microwaved a 1/2 cup of egg beaters.

They were really good.  Kinda spongy but a lot like a pancake I think.  I also made them for the girls breakfast and spread jelly on their’s with sliced banana.  It was a hit!

I snacked on a fuji apple today before lunch.

My lunch break today was a little different.  I went to the gym!  The gym at my apartment community I work at.  I spent about 30 minutes there getting familiar with the equipment.  I have worked there 4 years and never used it once!  I still needed time to eat, so half an hour was all I got, but it was good to have a mid afternoon run on the treadmill.  I felt great!

Lunch was tuna salad with carrots, pickle, cucumber, tomato, and Dijon mustard.  I spread it on Wasa light crackers and rolled up in lettuce leafs.  I also ate it straight up with a plastic fork!

It was a hurried picture.  I was hungry.  This afternoon was more yogurt and Heart to Heart, also some baby carrots, and a Z bar on my way home.

Overall I feel really good about working out some today.  Even though my Monday kinda sucked it helped lift my spirits and get those endorphins going.

I hope everyone had a good Monday and like me will have an even better Tuesday!
