Hump Day

I don’t think I’ve ever used that as a title before because I always think of it as cheating…but I’m so tired I’m cheating tonight!

Day Three – No Coffee

I’m incredibly impressed with myself.  You all know my usual two mug daily consumption, plus my multiple Starbucks trips.  Odd how I’m not an angry monster with a massive caffeine headache.  I’ll take it!!  And boy is my weekend coffee going to be a treat!

Breaky:  I broke into the Liberte Lemon yogurt…thick like paste…love it.  Mixed it up with fresh blackberries and raspberries, some hulled hemp seeds and a scoop of raw oats.  Yum yum.


Since no coffee I opted for an icy pineapple juice to sip throughout the morning.


Lunchtime:  FH bought smokies while I was away and since they are only 200 calories I decided to cook one up for lunch…on a toasted roll with ketchup & mustard.  Side of pickles of course!


Fruity goodness for an afternoon treat…cherries & apricots. haha, that apricot picture is dirty.  *tee hee*


Work ran late due to my regular weekly conference call, and I was starving when it ended but I wasn’t ready for dinner yet so I munched on a Roasted Almond granola bar


After a nice long walk (with my first attempt at outdoor running…my neighborhood is way too hilly for a beginner like me!) I was ready for dinner.  Leftover Lentil Walnut Burger pattie  with mixed spinach salad, a scoop of hummus, and the remains of some broken and sad organic tortilla chips.


In the salad bowl: baby spinach, tomatoes, cukes, herby goat cheese, drizzle of EVOO, sea salt & pepper


I think I’ll go rummage around for an evening snack to enjoy with my third litre of water now.  I’m poopered yet again.

"Thick like paste..." Yumm-ay. LOL!

*LAUGHS* I love the apricots!!!!

Did you eat the lemon cheese??????? I bought some vanilla tonight and I already can't wait for it to be almost done so I can scrape the sides...that was the ONLY disappointing part of the coconut!

I'm really glad that it hasn't been difficult for you to get off the caffeine. I always get a huge headache if I don't get some into me by 730/8am.

Q: Where did you buy your hulled hemp seeds?

Love the "dirty" pic BTW ;)

Jen, I always scrape down the sides and lids and stir the cheese in. Best part! Mediterrane is so thick though it's like a tub of cheese. :)

Lynn, I got the hulled hemp seeds at Bulk Barn. I had purchased hemp seeds before but they were hard and gross...I figured out that was because they weren't hulled. The hulled are yummy and chewy!
