WIAW #7 and A Very Busy Day



WOW Monday was one of those I can’t wait for this day to be over days.  I overslept, so when I got up it was non stop, shower, dress, breakfast and out the door. I usually get up with enough time to read my Kindle Bible, do a workout, look at GMA while eating or read blogs. ( I hate being rushed). Breakfast was a wrap filled with sunflower seed butter, sliced bananas, sliced almonds, shredded coconut, dried cranberries and chia seeds and a cup of coffee.  So delicious.

When I arrived at work there were more challenges. One of my teachers was scheduled off and another called off, but the team pulled together and things worked out. However that made my normal multitasking day a super, super duper multitasking day.  I was so busy I almost forgot to stop and eat, in fact I didn’t really have what some would consider a normal lunch. I snacked my way thru the day , early afternoon I had four mandarin oranges I had at my desk and the most delicious Health Warrior Chia bar. And of course lots of water throughout the day.

In the late afternoon I had crackers and lemon hummus from my office frig.


When the center closed at 6:30 that evening I stayed to get caught up on some work. Because it was the first Monday after spring break I had loads more computer work that needed to be done.  You know that saying, “A Women’s Work is Never Done”, it’s true. After leaving the center I had to stop off at three stores on my way home.  I arrived home just a little after 8:00 with no idea of what to have for dinner. I decided on a salad and avocado panni. I spread roasted pine nut hummus on a tortilla, sprinkled on cheese, layered the avocado and grilled using my George Foreman grill. Even with all the business of my day I think I managed to eat fairly healthy foods on Monday.

It felt so good to finally turn the dial to off for the day, needless to say I had a great nights sleep and Tuesday was a super multitasking day instead of a super, super duper multitasking day.

I hope everyone is having a Wonderful What I Ate Wednesday.

Don’t forget to stop by Peas and Crayons to see all the good eats.

Thanks Jenn for hosting.

Questions of the day.

Today there are two.

When you are crazy busy, do you take the time to prepare quick healthy meals or eat fast food?

What kind of job do you have, slow and quite or fast paced and energy packed.



wiaw love your veggies month button 2This was no ordinary Monday, because it was Presidents Day, for some it was a holiday from work, but for me I had staff development training and I was one of the trainers. When I’m a presenter in front of large groups, I get just a little bit anxious until I’m in front of the group speaking.

To get my day going I started with two waffles layered with a mixture of MaraNatha No Stir Almond Butter and TJ’s Speculoos Cookie Butter, sliced bananas and sprinkled black chia seeds.  Give this a try and you will be hooked!  My drink was freshly steeped JavaVans Mate tea from Teavana.  If you are a tea lover, you have to try this place if there’s one in your area.

Breakfast 7:00



8:30  I grabbed a cup of coffee in my recyclable Starbucks cup after arriving at the training site. I purchased the cup for $1, and every time I use my cup at Starbucks, I get .10 cents off my coffee purchase.    I’m sticking to my goal of being less wasteful.

10:30 I downed a Protein Berry Smoothie from my Starbucks double-walled insulated acrylic tumbler, I received as a gift on Valentine’s Day.


I didn’t do my grocery shopping over the weekend, so I didn’t have a lot to put together for lunch.  I made a veggie and apples plate for lunch, honey mustard for dipping veggies and TJ’s Cookie Butter for my apple slices.

Lunch 12:35


Do you ever feel like having breakfast for dinner? Well, I did on Monday and it was a tasty one.

Scrambled soy chorizo eggs with mozzarella cheese, flat bread & fig butter and orange slices.

Dinner 6:15


For something sweet later I had two pieces of my Valentine candy.

7:30 After Dinner sweet Snack


Question of the day. 

Do you like public speaking? How are you when speaking to large groups?
