Hey everyone!! How has your Monday been?
I was pleasantly surprised (and shocked) that when my alarm clock went off this morning, I actually felt well rested and was ready to get up and start the day! I couldn’t believe it! I love it when that happens.
Today I applied for a job! I want another one for this summer because I don’t work very much at the salon. I will still keep my salon job because it is very minimal and I love it…but I want to make some cash this summer!! So after school, I went to the local Genesis Health Club put in my application! I think it would so much fun to work at a fitness center because I love everything about fitness, so I think I would fit in perfectly there. I am really crossing my fingers that I get this because it could be a great opportunity. AND I would get a FREE MEMBERSHIP! Now that’s what I’m talkin about.
I started the day off with some purple oats:
I had planned on having some of my baked oatmeal that I made yesterday, but I was anxious to try out a bowl of oatbran using my unsweetened vanilla almond milk. There was also another new addition to my bowl this morning… here is everything I added:
- 1/2 cup oatbran
- 1/2 cup Almond Breeze
- 1/2 cup water
- tbsp flax
- blueberries and cherries, frozen
- 1/4 cup egg beaters
Yep, I also tried out some egg beaters thrown in there. I wasn’t sure whether to add them in before I cooked my oats or after. I ended up putting it in after I cooked them and it turned out awesome!! I couldn’t taste any difference and it added 6 grams of protein to my bowl! This is definitely going to become a regular addition to my oats.
For lunch, it was the usual: PB & B on whole wheat bread. 1% milk. I am thinking about switching over to water for my lunches at school since I am trying to cut out the dairy…but it makes my lunch more filling and adds protein. So I think I may continue to have it at lunch in the cafeteria and sometimes get water. I only have 3 more weeks of school and then I can eat my lunches exactly the way I like ‘em! :D
Dinner was some chicken in alfredo sauce, cauliflower, and edamame
This was my first time trying edamame. I used this product:
1/2 cup of this stuff packs in 4 grams of fiber and 8 grams of protein! I thought they were very interesting and unique…in a good way.
And just look at my lovely desert:
Ahhh, the perfect way to end the day. :)
So now I will get to my question in the title…About a month ago, I ordered some Kashi Crunchy bars. GNC was running an awesome deal and I couldn’t help myself, haha. So i got two huge boxes of them, one is the chocolate peanut flavor and the other is the chocolate caramel flavor. I really like them but I now realize that I got way too many. So I thought I would see if anyone was interested in a trade or anything?
Have a great night, all! <3
