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!

Happy Monday!  Well what’s left of it.  The day is done for most, and myself included.  I wanted to try to fill you in on some eats lately, but be forewarned…so of my pics are pretty bad.  I’ve had lighting issues I guess.  I hope it’s not the operator.

Dinner last night was baked chicken breast smothered in sliced canned tomato.  A slice of sweet potato and mixed veggies.  Pretty good Sunday night dinner.

Check out the yogurt I just bought on Saturday.  I did not notice this until I was viewing the picture I took after uploading it!  I was eating this Sunday afternoon 2/28/10.

The date said sell by 2/25/10!  Of course it wasn’t bad, but I have a weird THING you could call it about eating foods after the sell by, use by date.  Yeah, uh-huh.  Icky!  Oh well.

Breakfast this morning did not come out looking appetising at all.  It was delish though, it just didn’t photograph well.  I made 1/3 cup Milled flax seed and soy hot cereal, mixed with water, and half a banana.  It hit the spot!

For my snack this morning I ate an unphotographed apple.  Probably best considering the circumstances…bad lighting and all.

Lunch today was a herbivore’s smorgasbord!  I had a HUGE salad mixed with sliced squash, cucumber, red bell pepper, baby carrot, broccoli, grape tomatoes, and green leaf lettuce.  I also added in some sliced smoked turkey (sorry herbivore) and Kraft fat-free cheddar.

Hello Kitty container held diced cantaloupe and raisins.  Yum!  The salad was so big, I actually couldn’t touch the cantaloupe until later on in the day for my afternoon snack-age.

So Monday nights have been exceptionally late for me lately because I’ve been taking a Parenting with Love and Logic class at my daughter’s school for the past 5 weeks. Tonight was my last night of leaving the house at 7:30 am not to arrive home until 8:30 pm!  Yipee!  I ate an apple pie Larabar on my way to the class tonight so my stomach wouldn’t be talking louder than the instructor.  It was my first Larabar.

My concensus was good, but I am still out on the whole bar being satisfying thing.  I can’t do it.  I was still hungry just a short time later.  It’s not bad in the event you are just trying to keep hunger at bay for a little while though, a temporary fix.

Dinner was leftover jambalaya from Saturday.  I rolled what I could into a La tortilla Factory wrap, and forked the rest.

Dessert tonight was simply fat-free vanilla fro-yo with a crumbled up piece of graham cracker and a couple of chocolate chips.  Sweet!!

Well good night out there, my computer is trying to give up, so I’m going to let it win tonight.
