Heat Wave.

Posted on

Oat bran is easily my go-to breakfast when I have time to actually cook  something up.  1/3 C. oat bran + 1 egg white + cinnamon + 1 splenda packet + pinch of each baking soda & salt with fat-free milk and sugar-free maple syrup drizzled on top

And yes, I consider microwaving, cooking 😀

I mean who cares if I wasn’t slaving away over a hot oven to get a result like this, right?

There is a heat wave warning in our area for the next two days, which meant a mandatory sundress for this chick to wear to work.

The boots were probably a dumb idea, since it was so warm, but I promised a lady from work (who is really into western stuff and rides horses) that I would sport them for her before she retires 🙂

For lunch, we went out for our division chief’s birthday.

Any of you locals ever try The Firehouse Restaurant on 2nd Street?  It’s actually an old firehouse converted!  They use an old fire hydrant as the beer tap if you can see it behind the bartender’s head.

My selection was a large firehouse salad which came with chickpeas, onion, tomato, mushrooms, cucumbers, and mixed greens.  I nixed the roasted sunflower seeds.

I was in a toss up between this and the Fresh Seared Tuna Tower which came over a bed of seaweed salad, but it was so warm outside that I was just craving cold, crisp veggies.

When I got home, I had a snack before the boy and I went to the gym.  I did a brief 35 minutes on the elliptical before deciding that it was too beautiful of a day to be wasted indoor exercising, so I grabbed Jarid and we went for a little jog around a nearby development. 

Afterward, we did some abs and headed home to whip up some dinner

Spaghetti squash, broccoli, cauliflower, green beans, light Ragu, and fat-free cottage cheese

I was thankful when I got home that I had done a bunch of prepwork this weekend, because I basically threw some veggies in a bowl, threw it in the microwave, and topped it with some sauce and protein and called it a meal.

Dessert?  Mandatory.

Simple refreshment.  The rest of the night J and I spent watching “500 Days Of Summer” and hanging around in comfy clothes relaxing.  Winding down is my favorite part of the day, lately. 

Before bed, I also had a little bowl of Fiber One cereal with the last of my light soymilk.  It helped me sleep!
