Being a (desperate) house wife?

Good morning my blog friends. Because I am at home now, focusing on my job search, I have time to try to post my meals three times a day. I am still waking up when my husband wakes up around 6am. I fixed some black tea when I woke up and read the employment section of the paper. Sophie relaxed with me as I read the paper...

Oh the life of a spoiled pup!

Before I get to breakfast, I wanted to mention a new product I tried yesterday. I went on a 9 mile run Sunday morning and took with me a package of Carb Boom Energy Chews that I received in a race packet a few weeks ago. I have never tried these before, but I might have liked them a little more than Luna Moons or Clif Bloks. We have a couple of the Carb Boom gels too, but I haven't tried them. I'm not a fan of the gels, now that I have tried so many chews.

These chews helped get me through the last mile or two. I had a few around mile 7. I should have had some sooner maybe.
On to breakfast. I tried a brand of bagels from Whole Foods that I have never tried. They had 250 calories and 10 grams of protein per bagel. I really liked them, but I have liked ever sprouted wheat product I tried.

On my bagel I had some Trader Joe's Almond Butter and Polaner fruit spread.

I also had a piece of banana on one side of the bagel. These do have a hole, but how I topped them, they look like english muffins!

Off to clean the house, search for jobs, and care for my pup Sophie. So basically I'm going to be a house wife and a desperate job searcher.
Have a wonderful Monday and see you for lunch!

I love every sprouted wheat product I try too!

Thanks for the energy chew review. Do you usually eat something during a long run?

Good luck today! It gets really frustrating sitting at home, but be patient with yourself.

Thanks for mentioning the Carb Boom energy chews. Since I have to try everything out there, I'll spend even more money on my already overly expensive running hobby !!! :)
