2 days to go…

Good Morning!  Another busy day ahead…I panicked yesterday when I realized that when I get back from Thanksgiving “break” (I have both Thursday and Friday off…woohoo!) it would be December 1st!  My goodness, where did November go?!?  I have a big coordination meeting for my biggest project in the office on December 9th, which doesn’t leave me much time to accomplish the thousands of things that need to get done.  So, I’m trying to cram as much in as I can before leaving Wednesday evening…

I’m using my lunch break today to run errands, first to the running shop for new shoes (!!!), then to the vet to get dog food, and finally to Whole Foods to try and beat the after-work Thanksgiving shopping crowd.

On to food…

Breakfast: Bowl of Oats!  So good, this morning I mixed 1 cup prepared rolled oats, 1 banana all mushed up, 1 tbsp ground flax seeds, 1 tbsp almond butter and 1/4 cup pom seeds.  This was the first time for me to add nut butter to my oats and my goodness, I have been missing out!!!  It was a little higher in calories than I like for breakfast, but I ate about an hour earlier than normal and I’m still totally full three hours later…yay!

Lunch:  Another whole wheat pita stuffed with 2 tbsp roasted red pepper hummus, broccoli slaw and cucumber slices, along with my leftover tomato saffron soup.

Snack:  Since lunch is a little light in the protein area I decided on a honey Oikos with a pink lady.

I hope everybody has a fabulous day!  Wish me luck with my foot/shoes…hopefully I’ll have new shoes to try out on my run tonight and a pain-free foot!  🙂

  1. Nut butters are one of the few things that keep me full. I think it’s worth the extra calories. 🙂

    Good luck with shoe shopping, and avoiding the Whole Foods crowds!

  2. I recently discovered the amazingness of nut butter in your oats, and I am a changed woman. It keeps you full for so much longer! I will never eat breakfast without nut butter again.

  3. Those pom seeds are positively glowing. Delicious photography!

  4. I just got back from Whole Foods. TOO MANY PEOPLE!!! Haha.

    Good luck today!!

  5. AH grocery store craziness! I want to go shoe shopping today too, I’m not a fan of the whole, shop day-after Thanksgiving at the crack of dawn!! I just want to sleep! Good luck with the shoes and run.

  6. Laura and Ashley – I totally agree! I will be keeping nut butter in my breakfast from now on…

    Rachel – Thank you!

    Liz and Caroline – WF was totally crazy!!! It seemed that everybody in town had the same idea as me, but I’m glad I went during lunch because I bet its worse now!!! 🙂
