goodnight moon

i left work and headed to publix to grab a few groceries...
half a butternut squash, two tomatoes, blueberry chobani, whipped cottage cheese, 5 grain flax flatouts, and the NEW spinach and artichoke hummus (YAAAYY!). i ran home to put away my groceries and get ready to go to the gym. i had a quick pre-workout snack-

a slice of w/w bread with skippy's natural pb. i headed to the gym (via dunkin's for an iced coffee). 1 hour later i felt aweomse- thanks to 30 min on bike, 15 on treadmill, & 15 on elliptical. after my one week hiatus from the gym, i was moreee than happy to be back :D

when i got home i decided to do some laundry, unload/load the dishwasher, etc etc. clearly i lost track of time because before i knew it, it was 830pm! i had to think quickly regarding dinner- i decided to roast some brussel sprouts (my fav!) and throw two morningstar ginger teriyaki veggie cakes in a skillet. these are a new morning start product that i picked up at publix a few days ago and have been eager to try. they have sticky rice, carrots, water chesnuts, bok chy, edamame, and ginger & teriyaki in them (and now that i am actually reading all of the ingredients, there is a lot of junk- i may not get these again). i also added some shredded carrots to the plate and my new hummus on the side...

the cakes look a little burnt in the pic, but i swear they weren't ;) the dinner turned out perfectly and i ate everything except one cake- i didn't think they were going to be as filling as they were. i had a half of a peach for dessert and now i'm ready for beddddd. ollie and i are off to spoon.

goodnight moon.
