Okay, so I may have found an apartment. I know I’ve said this before, but that one fell through. So I’m not going to get too excited this time. It’s a nice bachelor apartment with a river view, backyard and a cute beagle next door. Most importantly, it’s in my price range. I don’t want to jinx anything though, so I won’t say much else!
Today was the last day of my “holiday weekend.” I started it the way every morning should begin, with a near empty jar of nut butter.
Plus a pot of chocolate protein oatbran.
Combined, they are a force to be reckoned with.
I need to start going through nut butter faster so this can happen more often. It was beyond dreamy.
I had a whack of errands to run after the holiday yesterday. Fuelled up with my last Quaker simple harvest bar I won in the Fitnessista’s Quaker giveaway.
These were really good! However, like most of these type of granola bars, there isn’t much too them. There are too many other things out there for 150 calories that are more filling (and nutritious).
The highlight of my morning was getting free suckers when I paid my cell phone bill. I love candy!! Especially when it’s free
Came home for a yummy lunch.
Pita pizza with Eden Organic pizza sauce, Yves meatless pepperoni, mushrooms, onion, red pepper, spinach and shredded cheese.
I kept up the pita theme into the afternoon by snacking on some Mother Nature’s pita chips with tzatziki and hummus.
It was delish, but too salty for me! I was thirsty for the rest of the afternoon!
I went to spin class before dinner. It was alright. It wasn’t as intense as I usually like it, which I guess is a good thing since I’m tapering. But I was having tummy issues during the class, so I couldn’t really push it. It was still an hour of sweaty activity though, so I guess that’s good enough. Think I may do a pilates video tomorrow for more light activity. I’m noticing my body gets really stiff and sore when I don’t get some movement in during the day.
Had an appointment to look at another apartment at 7pm, so I had a quick supper in-between.
Grilled ham & cheese sandwich and pea soup…
I don’t eat a lot of soup because I prefer my food solid. I bought this stuff on a whim because of a convincing sample lady at the grocery store.
I was pleasantly surprised! It was thick and quite satisfying. The sodium content is pretty decent for a product like this too. Usually I don’t go over 400-500mg, but considering the price and brand, it’s acceptable. Didn’t taste overly salty either.
My evening snack was notable enough for me to share
Yogurt, fresh blueberries (every season needs to be berry season!!) and some Nature’s Path blueberry cinnamon cereal. I love this cereal as much as the banana kind! The flakes and fibre pieces are super crunchy, and it’s got little freeze-dried blueberries that surprisingly add a lot of flavour. I’m becoming a big fan of Nature’s Path products. Their cereals and waffles are now my favourites
Question: Do you pay attention to sodium content? Besides making me incredibly thirsty, sodium doesn’t affect me that much. But I do try to go with low-sodium foods when I can. I find it’s too easy for it to creep up in my diet, especially when I eat a lot of deli/canned meat, cheese and bread.
