I got to sleep in until about 9:15AM, when I simply couldn’t sleep anymore. I tottered out to the kitchen in my jammies rubbing my eyes and decided it was the perfect morning for pancakes. Batter Blaster pancakes, to be exact:
With sugar free log cabin syrup! Perfect comfort food for eating while watching the snow fall out my window.
Then I was bored. I knew I wanted to wait until later to go outside and enjoy the snow, so I went downstairs to get in an early workout on the stationary bike. I caught up on One Tree Hill, since I’ve been missing it due to the competition with The Bachelor & girls’ night. This guy is such a charmer
600 calories and 1 1/2 hours later, when I was finished drooling over cutie pie up there, I was finished with my workout and needed a quick shower. By the time I was all cleaned up and squeaky clean, it was time for lunch! The family ate BLTs (bacon, lettuce, & tomato sandwiches) with creamy potato soup. But I had something different on the brain. I’ve been wanting to try this ever since I saw it on Janetha’s blog! I swear we share tastebuds.
I adapted my own version because of lack of greek yogurt in my refrigerator, but managed to make it just as yummy! I’m really sad that I couldn’t upload my pictures (STUPID COMPUTER) but I’ll give you the ingredients so you can try it for yourself! It was awesome!
Buffalo Chicken Salad Sandwich!
1/3 C. Fat Free Cottage Cheese
1/2 Tsp. Ranch Seasoning
1 Can Swanson Chunk Chicken Breast in Water
1 Tsp. Texas Pete Hot Sauce
1 Thomas 100 Calorie Smart Start English Muffin
2 Slices Tomato
Combine first four ingredients in a small bowl. Halve the english muffin and top each with mixture. Top each with a tomato slice.
As soon as I can, I will upload these pics. It was AWESOME.
I also had some steamfresh veggies on the side in my big old Prgresso Soup mug that I won from Yum Yucky
It was a well rounded lunch! I proceeded to unload and reload our dishwasher to help out the Momma. Then I put some laundry away and cleaned up a bit. I finally got my Under Armour gear on and headed out for a nice brisk 5 mile walk. I took my camera and have lots of amazing pictures, but unfortunately they would not upload either! Hopefully I can get this resolved tonight when I get home. I love the way things look in the snow. At mile #2, I passed my uncles house and stopped in to say hello. My grandparents were there and I visited for a little while. I wanted to make sure I was home by dark though, so I didn’t stay long.
Leaving their house, I jogged the rest of the way home :) A good three miles. I passed some guys out shoveling/plowing and they were yelling things to me like “keep smiling” and “I thought I was hardcore“…haha. I just can’t stand sitting around all day! My Mom was working on taxes, my Dad was snow blowing, and my sister was on her computer all day.
When I got home I refueled with some frozen grapes
I sat down until about 6:30, watching NCIS with the little sis. I got the munchies and decided to make a dinner of some loose veggies & salsa along with two 97% fat free Hebrew National Franks (40 cals. each)
After dinner, I vegged out for awhile, until the little sis got hungry for a milkshake. I made her a chocolate covered strawberry milkshake and then made a plain chocolate one for my Mom, as requested.
A 100 calorie pack of Orville Reddenbacher KETTLE CORN! Mmmm. The perfect combo of sweet and salty :) Then I went into a carb coma around 10PM, hoping for a delay from work in the morning and slept like a babe.
