Boy did this day end with a bang!! I am a lucky girl.
My test went really well – I think I aced both of them today….hope I don’t jinx myself!
I arrived home at 8:15 to find two mysterious packages. (Don’t look down yet!)
First, some background:Joleen send me some PB2 a week or so ago and it came in a Garmin box. She joked in her note that she hoped I wasn’t fooled by the box with PB2 inside, and I wrote back to her that I was for a second 🙂 She asked me if I wanted a Garmin (casually) and should I drop some hints to the company on the blog, and I said yes, because who doesn’t want one!? but that we are trying to save up right now. So tonight when I saw the same shape box with Joleen’s name on the return…my heart skipped a beat.
You guys are too kind to me. Really.
F O O D.
I ended up eating my cheese + crackers during Foodservice, my almonds before my test, and my mango around 6:30. I skipped the bar. But I did have a Sprite Zero compliments of my buddy Travis, and a chocolate egg from my friend Rebecca after I saw one on Tina’s blog and got a craving!
When I got home at 8:30, I was so wound up with joy that I wasn’t really hungry. So despite all the talk about split pea soup, I decided to have some cereal instead
I mixed together Pumpkin Raisin Crunch (~1/2 cup?), AgavePlus Granola, and this new Aztec Crunchy Corn and Amaranth Cereal by Erewhon I received as a sample to try. Plus vanilla soy milk – the ultimate cereal topping.
This was a great combo – big flakes, tiny crunchy granola and the huge amaranth-corn puffs. The amaranth was like Captain Crunch but totally unsweet and of course much more wholesome. I loved it it kind of stuck to my teeth and had lots of chew to it. It’s light and airy – a volume eater’s dream 🙂 And it’s also gluten-free if you’re allergic to wheat (we just learned about that last week!)
I am exhausted from a very long day and need to get some sleep so I can go on a Garminrific run tomorrow!
