Last night I felt very comfortable in my role as an old woman.
I met my sister for a 7:20 movie and by the time I got home after 10:00 it was past my bedtime and the only thing I wanted to do was sleep. I will never understand how I used to stay up to midnight the nights before work. Now, if it’s past 10:00 and I have not accomplished all I wanted to do for the day then oh well. Sleep is much more important. Hence why I went MIA on the blog last night. Did you miss me?
Before I went MIA I did enjoy a HUGE Apple for my mid-afternoon snack.
I am learning these apples are way to big for on serving. I always try to eat them all, but all the fiber gives me a little tummy ache at the end. I should eat half and save half. I need to remember that for next time.
After work I drove across town to meet my sister for dinner before the movie. Even though I had just ate at TooJays this past Saturday, I could not stop thinking about all the wonderful light options on their menu, and highly recommended that we eat there.
This time around I ordered the Mediterranean Health Trio.
The plate when delivered looked so fresh and inviting. It was loaded with fresh fruit and loads of yummy vegetables for dipping in the hummus.
I ate the majority of the plate and loved every bite. Sometimes a small platter like this is all you need to be satisfied.
With so many movies in the theatres I want to see right now, I am glad my sister was willing to meet me at the halfway point to go see My Sister’s Keeper. Talk about a tear jerker! I loved it, but my sister was a little annoyed on how different the book was then the movie, although she still had tears in her eyes during the good parts.
I had borrowed the book from Jenna this past weekend and am looking forward to discovering the differences. Kelly told me its worth it to read the book because everything, including the ending, is different.
When the movie ended we headed to my favorite tart yogurt place, Sweet!, for dessert.
I ordered a small tart original with granola, kiwi, & strawberries. It really made me miss all the fabulous FroYo placed in California!
As I said above I pretty much passed out as soon as I got home. I knew I needed the rest for my run this morning, which was an amazing 4 miler at a easy pace.
After running I did some last minute packing and tried to clean my fridge out. I still had lots of Strawberries, Blackberries, Blueberries, Kiwis, & Peaches that were on their last leg so I cut it all up and made a fresh fruit salad. I had a large serving for breakfast then froze the rest for a later date.
I topped the my fruit salad with some Stonyfield Non-Fat Plain Yogurt, 1/4 cup Meg’s Crunchy Mix, & 1/2 cup Annie’s Coco & Vanilla Bunnies.
It was a very tasty and filling breakfast. I LOVE big bowls of fruit in the morning!
The funny part is I still have cantaloupe, a mango, 2 large apples, grapes and a whole pineapple in my fridge as well. Luckily these items will survive through the weekend. I still can’t believe I had so much fruit in my fridge. I guess I just went a little crazy the other weekend. 😉
What items do you tend to overstock on in your fridge? I always have ridiculous amounts of fruit because I never want to be in a situation where I run out. I also have 4 different jars of nut butters. 🙂
For a little humor…
I gave my sister a sample of Amazing Grass last night to try and had a good giggle when I found this message in my e-mail this morning.
So I decided this morning that I was going to take the superfood stuff straight up. I added it to a small glass of almond milk. Wow that stuff is potent! I should have been smart and added it to a smoothie but I wanted to be a badass and drink it on its on. I took two big gulps and as soon as I felt like my body was going to reject it and send it back out I dumped what was left down the sink. I should have just added it to the smoothie. I just wasn’t expecting it to be that bad! Thanks for letting me try it though!
