Odds and Ends

This week has been a bit of a roller coaster, in terms of being busy and having a bunch of mishaps that included: a bumpy day with the in-laws, a car that broke down while I was with the babe, and continuously rainy weather which made it difficult to get some air.

Still, I managed to persevere without eating my face off; which is a refreshing change from my usual behaviour when I'm a bit stressed.

I am definitely changing my habits, which is so great. When my car broke down earlier this week, the first thought that popped into my head was, 'Oh no! I have to miss spinning class tonight!". Heh, I am really warped.

I've also been super busy, and meal planning has been a little ad hoc, at best. But I managed to throw the following meals together by scrounging in the fridge:

Lunch yesterday: fresh pumpernickel bread smeared with avocado, a healthy dollop of roasted onion and garlic hummus, and a cup (er so) of leftover spaghetti squash with a few chick-peas, zucchini, and red peppers. It was super filling and yummy.

Dinner last night: Almost had to get take-out, but I stood my ground and continued to stare deeply into the fridge with hope. Threw together some whole-wheat wraps filled with roasted garlic hummus, avocado, sliced tomatoes and cucumbers. And then I managed to scrounge up a couple of sweet potatoes - I sliced them long, and tossed them into the oven for some roasting. Behold: wraps and baked fries! My hubby commented again on the meal this morning, so I know it was a hit!

Lunch today: So this was tough. Fridge was empty. I managed to scrape off the last of the avocado, and smear it onto some pumpernickel. I found two lonely veggie burgers at the back of our freezer, and threw them onto a pan. Sliced up some sad looking veggies in the fridge: cukes, red peppers, and tomatoes. Voila! Lunch in pinch.

We are now in serious need of groceries!

Hopped on the scale this morning for fun. Holding steady from last week. Not gonna lie - I'm a bit bummed out. My water intake has been pathetic over the last couple of days, so I'm going to brush up on a few things and weigh in again Sunday morning. Fingers crossed, I'll get the scale to move a little so that I can call this week a loss. Will report back!

Looking forward to conquering this weekend!
