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:
Mixed-up bowl of squash, zucchini, onions, tofu, and mozzarella flavored with champagne vinegar and dill
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! 🙂
