yesterday was “first saturday” breakfast with my friends from weight watchers. it was such a blast. we got much more inappropriate than usual, and i loved every minute of it. 🙂
pat told me we should make the tea bag photo a tradition. hahaha.
the “healthy breakfast” was so incredible: an egg white omelet with mushrooms & tomatoes, fresh fruit, grilled tomatoes, and coffee. sweet nectar, if you will.
i felt so good afterward without the potatoes and toast… i do love homefries. but it felt more like a meal, and less like an event.
and i begged for this photo, so i had to include it. thanks, fran!
after finishing my three cups of coffee, and potentially scaring off all diners within earshot:
this is maybe my favorite photo ever.
i watched dogtooth today. more because i decided i had to make it through so i could talk about it with someone at work tomorrow. to come down from this, i’m going to give before sunrise a try. i think it’s much more perfect for my sunday night.
i also decided to keep in line with my “try to read 9 books at all times” tradition, and start in on the catcher in the rye before i finish eat, pray, love. i don’t think i can even count it as a reread, since i was so young the first time i read it. i’m excited to see how it effects me this time.
eats throughout the day were delicious and light. i went out last night, and had one appetizer more than i thought i would (read: we shared a whole pizza). it was a very calm, happy night, though.
i got around to the doughy smoothie i was craving from kath’s blog. last night when i tried to make it after the gym, my parents were napping on the couch. so i settled for a bowl of oatmeal instead.
1/3 cup rolled oats, 1/2 cup soy milk (organic, plain, and no sugar added! it’s so good), tbsp of tj’s valencia roasted peanut butter, 1 whole frozen banana, vanilla extract, water to thin it out, and a pinch of guar & xanthan gum to thicken it up. i’m complicated. i know.
i decided to make it an oat filled day, and went for a small snack bowl during the movie. i used 1/4 cup of oat bran, 3/4 cup water, splash of peppermint extract, 1/2 oz of 100% chocolate, and some stevia.
i might be about to round out my day with a third serving, because i’m dying to try the sugar-free pancake syrup my mom picked up for me. it’s better than three candy bars. hahaha.
the day also included a stupendous mango,
and an edamame burger & salad.
it’s time for tea and the rest of my double-feature!
