They don't need me to work extra this week so I am going to enjoy a little freedom and more time to get things done around here.
I had my raisin bran muffin for breakfast from the recipe I tweaked to make it low-carb friendly.
Went to step aerobics with my exercise buddy.
Had a huge salad for lunch. Quick tip: I buy those organic salads that are in a clear plastic tub. I like my greens in small edible pieces so while still in the tub I use scissors to keep cutting through it until the greens are in the small pieces I want. One of my biggest gripes when going out and ordering a salad is that the vegetables are in such big pieces. Slows me down (but that could be a good thing). I had a low-carb fruit cup for dessert. I clean out the refrigerator when I make a salad so in addition to the greens, I had 1/2 an avocado on it, sunflower seeds, sliced almonds, 2 slices crisp bacon (bacon makes everything better), feta cheese, onions, tomatoes, a carrot, bell pepper, ranch dressing. I know that ranch isn't the best choice but it's my favorite. Taste is so important as far as being satisfied is concerned. Chewing contributes to satisfaction as well. I don't like meals I drink - diet shakes, smoothies, something juiced just don't do it for me. I feel all virtuous if I choose something green and drinkable but the hunger is not really helped much at all.
I have never tried quinoa and have had some for quite a while. I am going to run down a recipe and try that for supper.
It's hot here and still hasn't rained. I will be spending the evening watering - oh joy.
