Help Give to a Food Bank...

I'm behind on yesterday's post because I have been fighting a cold that really hit me hard last night. So from my bed this morning I typed emails from my blackberry to alert people at my firm that I could not make it in. I tried so hard to go, but then fell back into my bed until 10:40am. My husband did bring me a orange yogurt shake he made me before he left.

Anyways, here is what happened yesterday when my throat gradually began to ache...

For breakfast I had a cup of kashi puffed rice cereal and some pb puffins with skim milk. After seeing other bloggers warm up their cereal, and after seeing a mini wheaties commercial advertising warming up your cereal, I tried it. I was so good after 1 1/2 minutes in the microwave. I added the berries after it was heated up.

Because my throat was hurting and because my office was so hot, I told my husband I didn't feel like a lunch workout and would rather go with him for a drink. At noon he met me at my office and we walked to a Starbucks which is in a really nice hotel the Omni William Penn. After we got our drinks (I got a mocha frap lite and he got the hot pumpkin spice latte) we sat in one of the couches in the hotel lobby for about 35 minutes. It was a nice lunch break.

After the drink and because of my cold, I didn't feel hungry until 2pm. Even then I wasn't really hungry, but I thought I should eat for some energy.

This morning I opened this can of soup and put it in a tupperware container to take to work. This soup was on sale, and is really not that good. I just like some other canned lentil soups that are on the market a lot better.

The soup doesn't photograph very well. I ate it with some carrots and Newman's Own lite honey mustard dressing.

At 4pm I ate an orange, that was pretty small. One of the administrative assistants saw me peeling this in our "kitchen" area, and she said "I think you are sick because you eat too healthy." Which is an odd statement, but oh well. You would think I would not get sick, but I have always been one to get sick easily.

I went to Rite Aid to get some throat drops and all this holiday chocolate was on sale, and some how, several packages jumped in my arms. This was one of those packages. I didn't have any all day, until I got in the car and my husband wanted some. I decided to try a piece of the Chocolate Pecan Pie and the Egg Nog. I really liked both.

For dinner we had an egg sandwich with some microwaved brown rice. I added salsa and peas to the rice. On the sandwich is a morningstar patty.

I also had some Edy's slow churned ice cream to sooth my throat. No picture, and not so much luck helping my throat.
Happy Friday. I hope to at least walk on the treadmill a little today to get my legs moving.
And go visit Heather and Mark and leave them a comment (if you didn't already), because they are donating 5 cents per comment to the Rhode Island Community Food Bank. Food banks are really hurting because demand has gone up, but donations have done down. My husband and I wrote a check to a foodbank last week, because we realize the need and the importance of food.
So Thanks Heather and Mark for such a noble "challenge"!!
