Today has gotten off to a good start!  I woke up excited it’s FRIDAY!  Woo-Hoo!!  I have NO plans this weekend and we are going to take it easy!

This morning’s breakfast was an egg wrap made complete with salsa and spicy mustard! 

I used a 1/2 cup egg beaters and wrapped it up in a La Tortilla tortilla.  Great start to a great day! 

I worked out a little this morning.  My week has consisted of the elliptical trainer and a lot of sweat and so today I took it easy and just did 10 minutes on the treadmill to get the blood flowing and spent the rest of my time concentrating on upper body weights and toning.

For my morning snack I had a usual plain greek Fage 0% with cereal mixed in.

Yum!

Who else is excited for the weekend?  Anyone like me happy for the plan-LESS weekend ahead?  Or are you mega busy?

Ok, so right now I should not be blogging, but I have been neglecting this little page for a few days now so I am feeling a little guilty. 

I have been getting ready to leave for OKC tomorrow for Big girl’s Tae Kwan Do tournament!  Is she excited…?  Kind of.  She enjoys her classes and has fun, but gearing up for these tournaments are stressful and a lot of practice, so I think she’ll be happy when it’s over.   Baby girl is going to stay with B’s mom over the weekend while we are gone.  *snif*  I’ll miss her! 

But I have soooo much to do!  We have to go to the store for car snacks for the 3 hour drive, I need allergy meds!  OMG!  I need some Claritin Clear or something.  I already have eyesight issues and this crap in the air is making it intolerable!  Every 3 seconds it seems I am digging in my eyeballs (good visual huh?) trying to rinse the film off my contacts.  I know, don’t lecture me on why I just don’t wear my glasses.  I do…at home.

I want to say a big THANK YOU to Low…and behold!’s Kacy for hooking me up with some fantastic info on some local eats while we are in Oklahoma this weekend!  I can’t wait to try her recommendations!

I have been trying to use up the veggies in my fridge since we wont be home this weekend to eat them.  My lunches and dinners have all looked like this:

Huge salad!  Spinach, carrots, avocado, mushrooms, cucumber, tomato.

This hurried picture was my lunch yesterday.  My meal contained steamed broccoli and brussels.  Mustard to dip them in.  Carrots, and avocado.

Dinner one night this weeke was veggie pasta, and spicy turkey italian sausage otherwise known as Wacky Pasta around our house.  I topped it off with a fine load of veggies.  Should veggies and load be in the same sentence?  Let me ponder that one.

Pizza last night.  But I ENHANCED mine with a big bowl of spinach, cucumbers, tomatoes, and carrots.

My breakfasts also were very fruity seeing as how I needed to eat up the fruit that would be left to spoil over the weekend.

The theme here?  Hodgson Mill’s Multi Grain Hot Cereal with Flaxseed.  I also used cinnamon, almond butter, and of course fruit!

Let me leave you with something that makes my day just that much better every time I use it.

HELLO KITTY plastic lunch box!  Toda it faithfully held Fage 0% and some cereal for crunching.

Yay!  I makes me smile every time!

Oh!  I was one of the lucky winners in What Kate Ate’s Sunshine Burger giveaway!  Can’t wait to get this coupon and check it out!  Thanks!

Yesterday the family and I went to an Easter egg hunt put on by the city.  The weather was gorgeous and there were a TON of people!  Both girls were pumped and ready to load up their baskets with eggs strewn about. 

But with so many kids it was crazy!  When they said GO it was a mass frenzy and Big girl had her heart set on one of about 5 stuffed Easter bunnies out for grabs that she didn’t pick up any eggs!  She did not get a bunny, so when she realized all the eggs were gone in about 2.2 seconds the tears came up!  Thankfully another little girl gave her some of the eggs she collected so Big girl would have some.

We then did some grocery shopping before heading over to my Dad’s house for some more Easter fun!  I failed to take a pic, but he grilled up some of the best burgers I have had in a long time!  I love homemade burgers, they are the absolute greatest! 

For dessert we indulged in some vanilla ice cream and peanut butter chocolate chip cookies! 

The girls then got busy coloring Easter eggs and then they got to partake in a “real” Easter egg hunt!  They had a great time at their Grandpa’s house!

It felt so nice to be outside in the sun!  I think I even came home a little less translucent! 

It was a very windy day!  We had such a fun afternoon! 

I started my day yesterday with some oatmeal, sugar-free strawberry preserves, flaxseed, cinnamon, and almonds.  Breakfast fuel to keep up with the Easter egg hunting fools!

And for dinner we decided to keep it simple and made homemade pizzas!  We used flat bread and sort of dressed our own.  My pizza included spinach, mushrooms, red bell pepper, and sliced Canadian bacon on the bottom.  You can’t really see it.  B and the girls both had turkey pepperoni and Canadian bacon on theirs.

Last night’s dessert was a yogurt mess of course!  I used 1/2 cup of Fage 0% i picked up on special at Kroger yesterday!  I scored an awesome deal, the entire 2 cup container was only $3.79!  I grabbed two!  I mixed with some Carmel Delight Fiber One, raisins, and some of B’s chocolate Fro-yo.  Ben & Jerry’s I think! 

 

It was a fun-filled Saturday!  The kind of day you wished you had every weekend.  I am totally loving the warmer weather and can’t wait to get some yard work done too!  Hooray for Spring!
