Thirsty Thursday!

Last night was busy, so here is Thursday....

This morning I had two of the blueberry-oat bars I made earlier in the week before leaving the house. I really can't get enough of these, and plan to make them again soon.

I had packed a different breakfast, but wasn't feeling like it after the oat bars, and I felt really thirsty and overheated so I decided I wanted something cold and went to Starbucks and got an Iced Venti Mocha Light Frap. I always take a picture empty because I start drinking it on my walk back to the office.

For lunch I threw some left overs into a container. I had a little brown rice leftover, some broccoli, cauliflower, and frozen vegetarian dumplings from whole foods. I topped it off with some reduced sodium ginger soy sauce. I was actually so hungry that I was eating this at 11:45.

With lunch I had green grapes and pineapple. Isn't this mug cute? Steve brought it back from a business trip to Hershey, PA.
At 3pm I decided to go to the gym for a quick run, I only got 2.3 miles in, but something is better than nothing. I was feeling hungry before I went, so I stopped at the GNC that is right outside my building. My lucky day because they had 3 Key Lime Pie Larabars on sale. I bought all three but only ate this one:) I never had this flavor but really liked it. It was great at calming my hunger and giving me energy to run.

I had made muesli for breakfast (which I didn't eat then) with 1/3 oats, 2/3 unsweetened chocolate almond milk, 1/8 cup dried fruit, 2 tbsp flax meal, 1/8 unsweetened coconut, 1 tbsp sliced almonds, and some fresh berries. These blackberries were huge! Because I had some shopping to do right after work and I decided to eat dinner at 6pm before I left the office. This was really good, and enough to hold me over until I could get home for something else.

When I got home at 8pm I was hungry so I had some left over couscous in the fridge (sorry no picture).

I have a super busy Friday, Sophie has a vet appointment and tonight at 6:30 a group of my girlfriends from high school are coming over for a pot-luck. We get together once a month, usually at a restaurant, for a girls night out. This is our first pot-luck.

Turns out Sophie is a fitness guru too, look at her getting ready to go to the gym!!

Have a wonderful Friday!!!

That dog is seriously the cutest!!

I love that mug - they have a Hershey store in Chicago and I saw it there once, but restrained myself. Seeing it again brings back the temptation!

I'm so glad you liked the lime Larabar! Yum!

Awww, little Sophie is so adorable. I hope she's not too bummed out about her vet appointment tonight! Good steal on the Larabars--80 cents is quite the steal.

just me said...

those bars look so great...i wish i had some time to make those!

and your dumplings remind me of my gyoza from the other night...maybe i'll have to try these from whole foods instead of my ones from trader joes next time... :D

and your puppy is soooooooooo cute...look at her in that bag!
