Back to the kind of sort of food journaling Tuesdays!
This morning, I was all about oatmeal. I had been running low on various ‘toppings’ and therefore recently avoiding the oatmeal. However, a trip to TJ’s last night allowed me to load up on goodies. Is it weird that I woke up borderline excited about using the below find in my breakfast? (Answer: Yes Julie, it is.)
Verdict: Tasty! Sweet and not overly pumpkin pie spicy – I think I was starting to OD on the cinnamon, nutmeg, etc.
The morning at work was quick and I nibbled some TJ’s ‘Bananas – Flattened’ at some point.
For lunch, I ventured out of the office with a few coworkers to Mark’s Grille and Catering (923 Penn Ave – Downtown). I like this place. Its older and kind of dark, has a pub like feel. The lunches are not fancy – soups, salads, sandwiches. You can get half a sandwich, a cup of soup, and homemade (I think? – they are nice and thick and crispy) chips for just over $5, with tax. Can’t beat that for a sit down lunch. Today I had a cup of chicken noodle soup and half a turkey sandwich on wheat. The sandwiches are on nice thick fluffy bread with a chewy crust. The turkey is piled high. You leave feeling satisfied but not weighed down by something greasy. If you work Downtown, try this place!
I spent the afternoon organizing seventeen binders worth of tax information for a client. Wild times. I snacked on a Clif Z bar.
I did not get home from work until 7:45. Ick. Such is the life of an accountant. Some accountants may actually consider 7:45 to be an early night. My walk home from the bus stop was cold and windy. I mentally vetoed the gym.
I then actually vetoed the gym when I got home, changed into sweatpants, and heated up some leftover lamb ragu. Yum.
Now I am off to watch Biggest Loser and hit the sack early. Ideally, some early morning OnDemand yoga will be happening in the AM. I can’t seem to kick some lingering soreness from a weekend BodyPump class.
