Fage Friday

I didn't get around to posting about Friday last night, so here it is...

Before I left the house I had an iced coffee with some Hershey's Lite Chocolate Syrup and light chocolate soy milk.

At work I made oatmeal, with 3 ounces of Fage and peaches and raspberries. The peaches and raspberries were so good together.

Around 11am I broke out the colorful grapes that I packed for a snack. All of these were meant for 2 snacks, but I ate them all at once.

At 12:30 I decided to eat my lunch, even though I had planned to go to the gym before lunch. I packed 1 cup of vegetarian chili from last night and some brown rice.

After lunch I needed something sweet, so I went into the chocolate stash hiding in my desk drawer. A few weeks ago I was craving chocolate so I went to Rite Aid and bought this Cookies & Creme Fully Loaded mini chocolate bars. I had never tried them but at the time they looked good. I don't like them much and won't buy them again. I had two mini bars.

At 2:30 pm I decided to take a gym break, and I even wore my Nike + with my ipod to learn how far of a walk my gym is from my office. I was thinking it was 1/2 mile round trip. But it turns out it is 1/3 mile there so it is 2/3 mile round trip. At the gym I was feeling really stressed and worried I would miss a call from a partner while I was on the machine, so I only was able to do 20 minutes on the stair climber and 5 minutes on the elliptical and a small bit of stretching. In total: 25 min at the gym and then 10 min of walking to and from the gym. I figure on a busy day 35 minutes is better than nothing.

Around 4pm I had a Kashi Cherry Dark Chocolate granola bar to hold me over until dinner.

I got home around 6pm and had no idea what to make for dinner. Around 6:30 I ventured into the kitchen and snacked on some Kashi crackers while deciding what to make. We decided to just make the Annie's Mac and Cheese with peas and Boca Crumbles. We use 1/2 cup Fage instead of milk to make the sauce. We shared a sliced tomato on the side.

After dinner I had another iced coffee. We then went to run some errands.

Around 9pm, when we got home, I had a weight watchers ice cream sandwich, a vita-muffin brownie, with cool whip and Hershey's lite chocolate syrup. This dessert total had about 250 calories. I figure I opted not to have a Friday glass or two of wine, so 250 calories was not too bad for dessert.

I hope everyone is having a great weekend so far!!!

Yum - that dessert looks amazing. I still have yet to try a Vitamuffin but I think they sound so scrumptious.

Annie's is truly one of the best dinners you can have :o)

Have a great weekend!
