Good morning! Have a good Friday night? I sure hope so! I had a wild night in watching 24 with the husband 😉 But I can justify my granniness this time! I had a LONG day yesterday, and have quite and early and busy one today.
Yesterday morning started out well and good with a 20 minute ellip sesh and 20 minute power yoga sesh with Mr. Farmar. Honestly, I just wanted to get a little more sleep, so I planned a nice and easy workout I could do at the crib.
Before leaving for work, I had an all right bowl of stovetop oatmeal:
Wish I could say it was delish, but for some reason, it was just a’ight. A little too watery. I know I’m in the minority, but I almost like microwaved oats better!
Worked the morning away until around lunch time, when I slipped out and dropped off some paperwork, and nommed on this delicious wrap:
Spinach, zucchini, orange bell pepper, hummus in a Flat Out. YUMtopia, folks.
Other yummy eats of the day included an Alternative Baking Company Coconut Macaroon cookie:
So yummy. I ate half with lunch, and then the other half before I left work for a training appt.
And had an unpictured apple and orange.
After the work day ended, I headed straight to job numero dos to meet a potential client for a consultation. She ended up signing! woo hoo!! :D
Even though it was 6:00 by now, I had to get some necessary groceries, so I stopped by the health food store since I was already oot and aboot.
Haulage right there, m’friends.
Organic granola and pinot noir
Organic Tempeh! I’ve never tried it before. And being a vegetarian, I’m willing to try all protein sources! Well…almost all 😉
I wish I had the budget to get all things organic and natural, but I don’t, so I’m trying to just narrow it down to a few select products. I chose deodorant to be on this list for the simple reason that deodorant on my body all day. I don’t care so much that my face or body wash is organic/natural because I wash it off right away, but products such as deodorant, lip balm, lotion etc. that stay on the body all day have time to seep into the skin. I have no idea how valid this thought is, but it makes sense to me. Thinking about doing a post on its own about it soon But I digress…
After putting away the groceries, I made my dinner!
I had Shane bake an acorn squash while I was out, and when I got home, I cooked up some black beans in a tamari+rice vinegar+maple syrup sauce and poured it in the acorn squash "bowl." Such a good combination. I have it often, I know, but I lurve it!
And of course I busted into my new bottle of wine:
Such a good pinot noir!
I’d also been surprised with a package addressed to me that I couldn’t wait to tear into.
I completely forgot that PureVia had offered to send me some of their natural sweetner! I really just add stevia to my oatmeal anymore, so I’ll have a review of that to come, plus I’ll get the hubski
