My, my, what a marathon of a Monday yesterday was! It was one of those days that seemed daunting in the days before, and then at the very end you’re left thinking, “wow, I made it through!” You know?
Not that it was a bad day – there was just a lot packed in. I was at the gym working from 11 until about 7, then I trained a new client out of her house from 7:30-8:30, and then had a volleyball game from 9-10:30! Go go go!
The volleyball game was a blast – and we won all three games!! I left a happy, sweaty mess. Much happier than after last week’s loss 😀
I did manage to somehow sneak in dinner in between my obligations:
Squash + black beans + feta = best combination ever.
Or so I thought they were black beans when I bought them…
When I opened the can, I noticed I actually got black soy beans! No wonder they were on sale…
I wasn’t too happy about that, since I’d already had soy at lunch, but this is what made me less happy:
FISH FOOD!! I had a bad seaweed experience last year (it tastes like fish food flakes!!) so I was extremely leery.
I enjoyed the squash ‘n beans with some Brussels Sprouts seasoned with TJ’s Every Day Seasoning:
But fortunately, they tasted like regular ol’ black beans!
Around 11:00, after playing volleyball and showering, I was hungry again. Playing vball works up an appetite!
Whole wheat bagel thins I loaded up with some homemade pumpkin cream cheese (3 parts cream cheese to 1 part pumpkin, 1 T pumpkin pie spice, 3 T. Maple Syrup – whipped up) and called it good.
I got these bagel thins at the store the other day as an impulse buy. And they sounded perfect for a nighttime snack since they weren’t too heavy!
Have you jumped on the “thins” bread train? I’m not one to be afraid of carbs, but sometimes you just don’t need all that bread! And bread with wholes in it is just more fun 😉
Well, actually, I sat and ate almost half the bag of these before calling it good…
…but that’s neither here nor there 😉
My day’s wide open today, but I have so much to do! I think I’ll start it off with a little yoga 🙂 I might try to run a little later today, too.
Are you working this week up until Thanksgiving?
