I love not having to set the alarm clock, lingering over a cup of coffee, and I just put another loaf of bread in the oven for breakfast – I love the smell of bread baking!  I need to get more flour so I can make more.

We have almost summer temps this weekend – in the 80s!  My drive into work was interesting, every direction I looked there were these lines in the sky:

I’ll give you five guesses on what I had for breakfast.  Are you sick of seeing my egg sammies?!  They keep me full for so long 😀

I had an unphotographed apple on the side: 444 calories, 45 carbs, 33 protein, 16.3 fat, 3.6 fiber

I went to the gym and I channeled Helen and Shelley and I ran on the treadmill!   I ended up doing 40 minutes – I would run for 5 minutes at 5.2 mph (11.5 mph pace) and then speed walk at 4.0 for five minutes and toggled back and forth.  I ended up then doing 10 minutes of triceps and biceps on the machine, and 5 minutes of abs on the ball – it felt good!

Lunch was more leftovers (as most Fridays are!).  Chili mac – 1 cup pasta, 1/2 cup Cincinnati chili, 1/2 cup black beans, torn baby spinach and orange peppers.  Lunch comes in at 473 calories, 43 carbs, 47 protein, 3.6 fiber.

I think I’ve mentioned it before, but my office has this deluxe coffee machine – Hannah would literally drink coffee all day long if she had access to that machine!  We have four different sugar free syrups – I decided on a caramel coffee with whip cream and tiny chocolate chip sprinkles – this comes in at only 30 calories! 😀

No party pizza Friday?  I know, I still can’t believe it myself!  But second best choice?  Taco fiesta!  Hannah was home for dinner so she helped me pull it all together.  I ended up making my own tostadas – just deep fried corn tortillas for a minute on each side.  They puffed up though!

don't forget the pickled jalapenos! with chips, dinner comes in at 569 calories, 34 fat, 24 protein, 54 carbs and 1 fiber

Stats for Friday:

  • 1486 calories, 142 carbs, 106 protein, 58 fat, 12.7 fiber
  • 31% of calories from fat
  • 40 minute treadmill
  • 10 minutes biceps/triceps
  • 5 minute abs on the ball

Great news – my friend Mara made it to the next round of Project Food Buzz!  So excited for her . . . in other news, still waiting to hear about going to San Francisco – fingers crossed still! 😀

Have a great Saturday – I have yard work to do today! 😀
