I made it to the gym in the AM yesterday morning thanks in large part to my Man. See, my alarm went off at 5:40 as usual and I immediately shut it off. I did not, however, immediately get out of bed. I toyed with the idea of NOT going to the gym and savouring the extra hour in bed. Enter My Man. Awoken by MY alarm his fear of Bailey peeing on the bed quickly set in. Before I knew it I had two options.
1. Take Bailey downstairs and put her outside
2. Get changed and go to the Gym.
I chose 2 since there was no way I was getting out of the worst part, "GETTING out of bed". Once I got to the gym I did 10 minutes on the Rowing Machine, 15 minutes walking at 10-15% incline on the Treadmill and 15 minutes on the Elliptcal. ADD requires diversity.
I came home to a glass of Vino
1/2 Scoop Muscle Food annnd Cinnamon
Tricks are for Kids, Cookies are for Ladies
My Sister had an Eye Appointment at 9:30 and came back to work with a PRESENT
Venti Refresh TEA. Mmmmm.
I felt like a snack around 11:00 so I stole this from my Mom's stash
Tangerine, I was unaware of how much I like these.. My parents leave for Sin City tomorrow and I plan to raid their fridge for fruit.
Salmon Burger, Acorn Squash, Assorted Mushrooms with Soy Sauce. Oh and can't forget the side of KETCHUP.
1/4 Cup Greek Yogurt, 1/2 Scoop Muscle Food, 1/2 Tbsp Almond Butter, Cinnamon annnnd Heritage Cereal. This snack was waiting for me in the work fridge and when I pulled it out it was SO cold. It made the almond butter harden and the yogurt more ice cream like, athankyou Mini Cold Fridge.
While I ate my Snack, Bailey brought some important matters to my attention..
"I know, I know, the security cameras catching you pee on the front mat IS an invasion of privacy."
My Mom and I spent the rest of the work day, and then some, trying to figure out why our GST was off and how we were going to fix AND pay it. Talk about DRAINING. It got to the point where I could barely think anymore. SO I had some Suga..
When I finally got home from work I was HUNGRY for some Supper. I decided to try out a new vegetable my sister introduced me to, Anise, along with some old faithfuls.
Anise (according to Superstore but it's actually Florence Fennel)
Full of antioxidants, Vitamin C, Folate, Reduces Inflammation and is beneficial against High Cholesterol. All of this goodness disguised under a licorice flavour. Verdict? If you like licorice you'll love this.
Anise, Brussel Sprouts, Amy's Burger and Lotsa Ketchup. I just put the Brussel Sprouts and Anise in the oven at 400 for around 15 minutes flipping now and then.
I ate my Supper and watched two new Guilty Pleasures..

Before my Bedtime Snack (everytime I say this it reminds me of being 7, back then my options were crackers and cheese or an apple, strict parents) my Man and I tried to figure out what 175g of Greek Yogurt is in Cups. It turned into a mission. I thought it was 1/2 a cup, he thought it was 1 cup and all the container told us was that a serving is 175g, which would only be helpful if we weighed our food. Not really my style. I called my sister and asked her to check her yogurt containers hoping her brand listed grams AND cups. Dead end.. I resorted to garbage picking and dug out my empty yogurt container from the night before, gross. Don't worry it was NEAR the top. I then started out by filling the container with water using full cups, nope. Then I tried 1/2 cups, nope. Then I tried 1/4 cups, YES. Since there are 500 grams in the whole container and a serving is 175 grams that mean't there is around 3 servings per container making the ANSWER 3/4 cup.
My Snack was waiting for me in the freezer since I was trying to re-create my snack from the work fridge.
1/3 Cup Greek Yogurt, 1/2 Scoop Muscle Food, 1/2 Tbsp Almond Butter, Cinnamon and Heritage Cereal. I just realized that for the last few days I've been saying 1 Tsp of Nut Butter when I really mean 1/2 a Tbsp.
Between the GST and the Greek Yogurt my Brain was fried, what's the only thing you can do when your brain is fried? Watch TV. My Man and I watched Melrose Place and then I was OUT.
I DID however, wake up at 2:30 and THIS:
Just like the other night my fingers ventured into everyother Nut Butter I have in the house.
