Can you believe it’s almost the end of September already? And that means only 5 more days until my BIRTHDAY! Crazy times. And this will be the last WIAW of September as well.
The day started out with the usual spin class, where I really noticed how cold the mornings have gotten. All my workout jackets are pretty old at this point, so I’ve been neglecting to wear them to the gym. Bad idea. It was freezing this morning, and I had a few errands to run after spin class.
I was glad to get home and park myself in front of the fireplace for a few minutes, while enjoying the first meal of the day. I had a batch of buckwheat in the fridge overnight, but since it was quite chilly I just warmed it up in the microwave for about 40 seconds. I still prefer them cold, but it was still tasty.
This batch contained: 1/3 cup buckwheat cereal (ground in coffee grinder), 1 cup almond milk, 2 teaspoons chia seeds, 1/2 banana, 1/3 cup pumpkin, cinnamon, stevia, and topped with peanut flour paste and blueberries.
Breakfast – 8:
I got showered and ready and ran more errands. I had to fill up my gas in my car, and it freaking cost me 80 dollars. Eighty. For gas. Ridiculous. I guess it’s not as expensive as it was at the beginning of Summer, but still too much.
I also made my way to the grocery store and realized I forgot my list. I tried to remember what I had written down, but when I got home I realized that was a huge fail and missed at least half the things. Oops.
Some food was next on the agenda.
Lunch – 11:30:
* 2 egg omelette, cooked in a little coconut oil *
I’ve been stuck on eating eggs for lunch for days. I haven’t eaten a “typical” lunch in a long time now. I’m not much of a savory lover when it comes to breakfast, so if this is the only way I’ll get my eggs in for the day, I will happily eat them for Lunch or Dinner.
* with a side of vegetables, roasted in some nutritional yeast and red pepper flakes *
After lunch, I went on a little stroll to see the last remains of Summer.
In between Lunch and Dinner, I became quite hungry yet again. My appetite never fails to let me know when its hungry, which seems to be every 2-3 hours these days. Not that I’m complaining, it’s just weird to feel that hunger again when I’ve been denying its existence for so long.
Snack – 3:
* pumpkin cookie dough with an apple a little later on *
After, I got geared up in my sweats and some really fancy boots and went down to the crawl space to pull out some Halloween decorations. I got totally in the mood to decorate the house. I only managed to bring a few thing up since crawl spaces freak me out for some reason. I guess its the small space.
Now I really want to go to the mall and pick up more Halloween themed fun stuff to decorate with, I’m just that cool.
Dinner is always a lame attempt at me to become creative. I try every now and again to think of something, but by this point I really just could do well with leftovers and call it a day. I decided to ditch that idea, since I was home to make a dinner and attempted to make a lasagna of sorts.
It was a mix of a fail/success. It tasted awesome, but it did not stay together the way I hoped. Oh well, just means I get to try out again:)
Dinner – 5:
* a little deconstructed lasagna casserole that contained leftover zucchini, red pepper, marinara, and a brown rice tortilla *
Of course, I’ll be having a snack before bed tonight. I just usually don’t blog about it since its not that late yet.
What are you favorite dinners?
Do you tend to eat the same ones over or do you try new recipes? Clearly I need some inspiration
Enjoy your Wednesday!!
