Good afternoon! I’m chugging along at work. Whenever I have a BIG project with a TIGHT deadline, I get a little antsy, but I’ve got to keep on reminding myself that it will get done in time…. it always does!
It’s really hard to think, though, when I have to put up with James Bond harassing squirrels from his shelf all morning long:
Seriously- he does that NONSTOP. It’s cute when he does that "ruff ruff grooowl" thing (like he does at the end of the clip), but otherwise it’s pretty freaking annoying!
But, this is a FOOD and FITNESS blog, not a doggie blog, so let’s move forward, shall we?
Around 9 AM, I had a Kardea Nutrition Bar. I tried the Almond-Cranberry flavor today. It was really good! The appearance of the bar is kind of disconcerting at first (it’s shiny and wet-looking), but its actually quite tasty.
Later, I had a bowl of cantaloupe. Part of the trouble with getting up early is that it throws off my whole eating schedule. Oh well!
And, at 11:30 (see… told you… a super early lunch!), I had a bowl of Onion and Polenta Soup. I used Pacific Natural Foods Organic Beef Broth Soup as the base and added in: roasted broc, a 1/2 serving of roasted polenta crotons, and strips of roasted Vidalia onion.
Unfortunately, I was not impressed with this soup. The beef broth lacked flavor. I like the other Pacific Natural Foods soups, however! I ended up tossing the last 1/3 of the soup and eating a handful of almonds to make up for it.
I also had a piece of WW toast + cottage cheese on the side.
Back to work for me! I am super excited to go on my 5 mile TEMPO run tonight!! I love knowing I have a great workout in my future; it just makes me so happy and relaxed.
Enjoy your day!
