How is it ONLY 3:00?

The insanity at work has finally ceased... well, at least for today. I have a few things to finish up before I leave, but nothing that absolutely has to be done, which is a relief, especially with the way this week has been!

I worked through lunch again today, but I planned to get out of the office later in the afternoon. Lunch (at my desk) was a ham and swiss cheese sandwich on Ezekiel bread with cucumbers slices. I haven't eaten a sandwich with cucumbers inside since summertime! (How sad!) It was a nice change from the usual H&S sandwich.

Also included in my lunch: Fage Greek yogurt with canned pumpkin and chocolate chips... mixed with a 1/2 packet of Stevia.


After finishing some "urgent" tasks, I finally left the office to run a couple of errands. My first stop was the grocery store to pick up a few items for tonight's dinner (photo below). I also stopped by the ATM for dinero and the post office for stamps. My errands took no time at all, so I decided to pop into JP Licks for a soy misto. I ordered my misto and still had some time to kill, so I decided to relax in one of the comfy chairs at JP Licks and read Eat, Pray, Love until it was time to go back to the office. It was so nice sitting, reading, and de-stressing. Man, I really need it!


Here's my Baggu bag getting some use...

At the grocery store, I purchased some scallions, wheat germ, reduced-sodium soy sauce, ground ginger, and rice milk.

Do you think it would be okay to freeze the olive oil muffins?

Hi Tina and Everyone!

I have a Q about pumpkin- I adore it but it makes me extremely gassy. Does this happen to anyone else?

Alex,

I haven't tried freezing olive oil muffins, but I think you totally could. Mal and I usually eat a whole batch within a week, but I think it's a great idea to freeze them, especially for mornings workouts or a quick snack.

Lisa,

Pumpkin specifically doesn't make me gassy (beans are a different story!), but it's definitely possible since it has a good amount of fiber in it.

Everyone,

I survived Friday afternoon! So happy to be home and drinking WINE! :)

The real question is HOW did you go to JP Licks and get a coffee and no ice cream!?! I am SO impressed. Seriously their coffee oreo ice cream might be my greatest weakness in life. mmm.

Also, I wanted to say thanks for introducing me to the Adora calcium disks. I picked some up at Whole Foods today and they're great! It's the perfect way to end a meal. Have a great weekend : )
