Flying vegetables!

Breakfast

Breakfast cookie with 1/3 cup oats, splash of Almond Breeze, 1/2 tsp cocoa, 1 Tbsp pbu on top, and a drizzle of agave…

…and some egg substitute with low fat mozzarella tucked inside.

I also had a cup of green tea with skim milk:

After breakfast, I drove to meet my dad at the regional airport. I am so upset – my camera died on the airfield today!  I took a picture of some of the other planes:

…and the tail of the one we were taking…

…and then the battery went dead!

It’s my own fault for not checking before I left.  We had a great time though – he even let me fly (or attempt to fly) for a bit.  The hard part was seeing over the dashboard because I’m so short.  Next time I need to bring a big pillow.

We made a pit stop in Gastonia to celebrate his and my grandmother-in-law’s birthday.  Lunch was a spread – roast beef, potato casserole, shrimp etufe, rice, okra, fried squash, salad, and rolls.  I had 3 oz or so of the roast beef, 1/2 cup of potato casserole, 1/4 cup of shrimp, a few pieces of okra, two small slices of fried squash, and salad.  I skipped the rolls and rice to save room for dessert – a Baskin-Robbins ice cream cake!  YUM!

After lunch, we flew for another hour or so and then landed to exchange goodies.  His birthday present for a huge bag of veggies from the garden, homemade pickles, and fresh zucchini bread.  Check out my crisper – totally packed!

Flying vegetables!  – cucumbers, okra, yellow squash, and zucchini (it’s hiding underneath)…

…and the pickles which I’ll open sometime this week.

I was starting to feel a bit sluggish around 4, so I had a protein bar on the drive home.  It’s Healthwise, the brand we carry at my office – not natural by any means, but it did the job.  I don’t have a picture since I hadn’t made it home to change the camera battery yet.   After putting up my goodies, I set out to do the P90X Yoga – it was 90 minutes and no walk in the park.  I’m still flexible from my former dance/twirling days, but there were some moves I couldn’t master.

Dinner was fairly light due to the large lunch:

I couldn’t resist trying a slice of my mom’s homemade zucchini/blueberry bread.  It was really good, but I’m feeling a bit stuffed now.  Too many sweets in one day!

Well, it’s time for this girl to shower and wind down.  I hope everyone had wonderful weekends – I know I did! 🙂
