Vibrating Desk

What a day.. Phew!  This morning I had some work related running around to do, but treated myself to a Panera’s coffee on the way back. nov4-naturally-nutty-bobs-5-grain-0032

  Bit disappointed because it was too bitter so I had to add another Splenda. It was a large (20oz) but still, I don’t like using that much Splenda.

Busy, frustrating work morning. One of those where you feel like you’re peddling backwards.  That continued into the afternoon. This morning, I had the discomfort of sitting at my desk which vibrated with the construction going on next door. nov4-naturally-nutty-bobs-5-grain-0011

At least that stopped in the afternoon.  I had some India Chai Tea at about 1:30pm which caused me to work up a sweat since I was pretty heated anyway chasing “money”.. one of my LEAST favorite jobs.

The day did start ok with a good work out and a good breakfast.  The workout was back, triceps, abs. With a 30 minute run and 10 minutes rowing. 35 minutes using the weights and universal. 34 minutes jogging with Shane.  See on the right side of the page “Category”  under “Exercises” where my workout is detailed. 

Breakfast was Bob’s Red Mill 5 Grain Whole Oats with Flax. (detailed under breakfast ideas category). nov4-naturally-nutty-bobs-5-grain-0082

1 TBS Pumpkin. 1/2 tsp Apple Pie Spice. 1 JUMBO crispin apple. Jay Robb protein shake.   My morning snack:  Oikos Plain yogurt w/ 1 TBS trail mix. Lunch:  About 2 oz left over tuna steak from last night and a big spinach salad with 1/4 cup brown rice.  Dinner: That will be baked crispy tofu accompanied by baked butternut squash and steamed broccoli. baked-crispy-tofu-dinner-0022

(Check out the recipe page for Crispy Baked Tofu). Ted is on his own with his ground tom turkey (I’m guessing it was Tom. Could have been Tammy???)

When I got home, my special box was waiting for me so I had to immediately dive in:

It was really good!  Thanks to www.Katheats.com for the initial reference to this nut butter. I never had Almond Butter before and it’s really good. No added sugar!  Yum!  Who needs dinner now?!!!

I’ll go take my socks off… I REALLY hate wearing socks. They always twist on my feet. I don’t much like shoes either. I’m a barefoot gal!  We will prob. watch the voting results and hopefully the latest DVD:

Breakfast 5 Grain Hot Cereal

bob's red mill 5 grain with flax

bob

What about some “Oat” variety?  Well I sometimes indulge in Bob’s Red Mill 5 Grain Hot Cereal with Flax. It’s a good hearty way to start the day:

1/3 cup dry cereal

2/3 cup water

1/2 tsp Apple Pie Spice (or cinnamon)

1 TBS canned Pumpkin (NOT pie filling)

Now… if you need sweetness, add 1 tsp maple syrup, or honey, or a packet of stevia.  I chopped some apple and added it to my hot cereal.  Sometimes I will add 1 TBS raisins.

Remember .. this is your carbohydrate. So don’t forget protein for breakfast.  Add a protein shake or some soy milk and expect to be totally satisfied for all or at least most of your morning.

* I’m not a nutritionist nor a dietician, but the above recipe works for me. Let me know what you do to make your hot cereal special.
