So I'm very frustrated right now becaue I am trying to upload some pics for my blog but it's just not working! Since I'm too busy tomorrow during the day to write I'm just going to have to post with no pictures! Sorry!!! So as you know, I'm working nights this weekend. I brought my Easter cupcakes to work last night and everyone was soooooo happy! That makes me happy that someone else enjoys my baking. Yesterdays eats during the day weren't too exciting but for supper.... now that was amazing!!! I tried PB Fingers spaghetti squash recipe! Wow sooooo delicious! I just put the squash in the microwave for a minute and then cut it in half (which was kind of difficult but I did it) and then roasted it in the oven at 400 for about 35 minutes. It made a lot of spaghetti squash which is awesome! I put about 1 cup mixed with steamed brocolli, cauliflowe and carrots into a bowl and topped it off with 1.2 cup veggie bolognese. Sprinkled that with a bit of parmesan and dug in!!!! Love this stuff! Great replacement for pasta!
At work I snacked on some fruits (apple and banana) and a mini cupcake before midnight. For lunch (around 1:30 or so) I had chicken stirfry with veggies and shirataki noodles. I made this about 3 weeks ago and froze it in individual portions. It was delicious! I also had some strawberries, pineapple and kiwi. Last night was sooo rough! I was soo tired but tonight seems to be a lot better. I slept until about 4 today which was great! I usually can only sleep until about 2 at the latest. For my breakfast around 5 I made some awesome protein packed pancakes. I got the recipe from this months Oxygen. I really wish I could show the pic because they were like heaven! I'm sure I'll be having these again soon though so I'll make sure to post extra pics then. I made them with 2 tbsp cottage cheese, 2 egg whites, 1 scoop protein powder and about 1 tsp cocoa powder. I topped them with a drizzling of agave, some maple flakes and sliced bananas and strawberries. I also had a few whole strawberries on the side. I'm drooling just writing about them! After those I got ready for work. I headed out the door to get a cup of joe and off to work. Work tonight was a bit hectic but when is it not!!?? I snacked on a Clif bar (in chocolate chip) around 10! For lunch around 1 was leftover spaghetti squash. Same as the night before but still absolutely amazing! I also had an apple. I'm going to be having some strawberries, kiwi and pineapple pretty soon cause I'm starting to get a bit hungry again. I also have some crudites as a hunger attack back-up. Seems like when I work nights I'm hungrier than normal. Not sure if it's because my body is trying to stay awake or if I'm just bored. Whatever it is, I like to have healthy snacks around so I don't find myself lurking around the vending machines at 4 am!!!
Now I'm pretty mad at myself with exercise this week. I haven't been to the gym much. I think twice. I did go for a run on Wednesday but I just keep making excuses. Now tomorrow I won't have any time but I think I might get a gym membership for the gym at work here. It's open almost 24 hours so I won't have any excuses. It'll also be nice that I can go on my breaks when I work nights. I'm not sure if I'll be able to get it as soon as tomorrow night but one can only hope right? Anyways, hopefully I get back on track soon. I really want to do my first half-marathon coming up in September so I really need to push myself to get there!
Well I better get off of here and do some work (ie. homework). I have a busy day tomorrow. In between sleep I need to watch my Flyers play the Red Wings in a match for.... case of beer of course!! My friend loves the Wings and I love the Flyers so we've had a little wager going on for a month! Philly better win! Not only cause of the beer but because they are sitting in 8th place right now and if they don't make the playoffs I'll be the saddest girl in Canada!! I also have to go to my parents for Easter dinner tomorrow. I made a special request for my mom's wicked brussel sprouts! Can't wait! Hope everyone has a wonderful Sunday!! Happy Easter!
