I said my goodbyes It was bittersweet – I’m moving on to other things, but I will miss those girls (and guy 😉 )
They were too sweet and gave me a mug ("busy as a bee!") and some BISCOFF as a going away gift!!!
So fun and appropriate
I munched on an apple and some trail mix on my [last hour + 15 minutes long] commute home.
And I headed straight to the gym!! I wanted to maximize my time with Matt tonight. I much prefer to come home and change here, but it does make more sense as a time saver to go straight there.
I had a rather lackluster workout though. Just boring cardio with little sweat. I did the Stairmaster for 26 minuets (barely broke a sweat!?) and then the ET for 20. I didn’t have a MAGAZINE and was a bit bored with the generic one I picked up from last month on the rack.
And a PSA to the MAN in the BLUE SHIRT: If your breath is not fresh, please breathe through your NOSE and not your MOUTH! I had to get off the Stairs 4 minutes early (although I did not complain because it meant 26 minutes 😉 )
We got our carpets cleaned today !!! SO EXCITING!
Dinner was basic but really good. Matt was in charge of cooking up some Annie’s Mac + Cheese that we’ve had in our pantry forever. Plus lots and lots of veggies.
The mac was topped with PIMENTOS and was just like Velveeta and pimento cheese!!! We also added some sriratcha – SPICY!!
Simple sauteed kale and broccoli. I love both!
Unfortunately pasta is like AIR to me and I was still hungry an hour after dinner!!!
What a perfect opportunity to try my new favorite dessert: Caramel Oikos!
TOTALLY IN LOVE!
When I heard about these I knew they would make a great dessert. Greek yogurt is great any time of day! I love how the cups are little, so they’re perfect for a sweet treat rather than for a bigger meal.
I topped mine with some crunchy coconut granola for crunch!
I was honestly expecting a sticky caramel sauce – much like the ice cream topping – so I was surprised to find it was creamy. But the flavor was spot on and the greek yogurt thick and creamy and just all-around awesome. It was gone too fast! At 10 grams of protein, 15% calcium and only 16 grams of sugar, that’s quite a nice dessert. I like caramel more than chocolate, but I can’t wait to try that one too.
I am determined to be in bed by 8:30.
Tomorrow will be spent a WINTHROP for our monthly seminar day. I don’t have to be there until 10:30!!! And I should be done by 3:30!! Fun times.
But I will be waking up at 4:45AM!!
Why, do you ask?
To take Karen to New Zealand!! Via transportation to the airport. She has to be there by 5:45 so I’ll be driving to her house to pick her up and take her. I certainly owe her one for taking me several times this summer in the middle of the night!!
Since I’ll be up, I have plans to meet Emily for a 10K run at the greenway (who also needs to get a head-start on her day) and then I’ll have time for a leisurely breakfast at home. Excitement!!!
