Happy hump day friends, we are half way there!
I didn’t make it to the gym this morning. My stomach is off, my head is congested and dammit, my body needs a break ;). But on a positive note, it IS Wednesday, and I am using the upcoming exciting things to keep me motivated today.
1. I go to LA in about 2 1/2 weeks.
2. Halloween is in about a month, which marks Mike and my unofficial 2 year anniversary 🙂 🙂 🙂
3. I get to think of a Halloween costume
4. My brother comes to MN in mid-November for a wedding he is in
5. I JUST BOOKED MY FLIGHT HOME TO DALLAS FOR THANKSGIVING LAST NIGHT!!!!
6. I get to go back to Dallas for 10 days over Christmastime
7. Mystery exciting thing in which I cannot tell you since I’m not sure if it is 100% yet.
What is keeping you going today?
One of my favorite things about the blogging community is finding new foods and food combinations you may not have thought of yourself. Both my breakfast and my lunch are examples of these combinations.
After reading Kristin’s blog yesterday morning about her breakfast wrap, I knew I had to create that for my breakfast this morning. I pretty made the exact same thing that she made. I’m a total copycat, but at least I am crediting the source :). Thanks for the fabulous idea Kristin!
On a whole wheat and mega high fiber wrap (32%, wowzas!), I lathered a combo of whipped cream cheese and Trader Joe’s pumpkin butter. Note to self, I must go get another jar this weekend because I have already eaten the whole jar in a week and a half.
With half of a naner sliced on top.
I then folded and packed it to bring to work this morning. I don’t yet have an appetite, but it has got to kick in at some point I would think!
With my sweet wrap I have some blueberry yogurt. Hopefully this will help calm my tummy, ugh.
For lunch, I am trying a new combo and praying that it works out taste wise. It looks and sounds pretty tasty to me, but you can be the judge as well. So what do we have here?
The other half of the mystery squash from Sunday. I filled it with about half of a cup of black beans and topped it with some feta cheese. Sound good?
I love the yellow/green color of this squash.
Along with a roll that I will heat in the microwave (and most likely smear with some peanut butter).
I also am brining along bread and oatmeal packets in case I need something a bit more bland today. I always crave the lamest most boring things when I am even *slightly* not feeling good.
Oh, and I can’t forget, I will be taking my Flinstones vitamin’s today. Yes, my co-worker has Flintstones vitamins and he has me take two a day, lol. I mean, who wouldn’t want one of these?
Are you a fan of Halloween? Have you started to think about your costume? If so, what are you thinking for this year?
I love Halloween. Okay, maybe mostly because of the candy ;). But I have a few friends that despise the ‘holiday’.
I am not sure what I am going to be this year, maybe BATWOMAN, get it!?!? I’m not actually going to be that. I have a good friend at work that comes up with the best costumes, so she is going to help me.
Have a wonderful Wednesday!
