Surprises

Good evening ladies (gents?)!

Almost weekend time…do the weekend dance, you know you want to!

My eats today were tasty!

Got up pretty early..it was rainy, so now walk outside this morning for me 😦

I lounged around until 8:30, then popped over to my apartment gym when it opened!  Beforehand, I ate a Kashi Blueberry Waffle with 1/2 tbsp Cinn Raisin PB, little Polaner Strawberry, sprinkle flax, and SF syrup!  Yum!

At the gym, I pounded out 40 minutes on the elliptical, levels 11-13

I also powerwalked on the tread for about 20 minutes

Total Calories Burned:  450

After the gym, I had a smaller breakfast.  I knew I was going to Panera for a goodbye lunch with my friend/co-worker, so I kept it light.  I had another Kashi Waffle (was feelin’ them today!) with a little Smart Balance, cinnamon, and SF syrup!  Alongside, a Pro-Biotic Fat-Free Vanilla Yogurt, 4 oz that I got with some coupons!

Tasty!

For lunch, I met my friend at Panera and had the You Pick Two combo, with Vegetarian Black Bean Soup (SO good there!), a piece of a whole grain baugette, and a classic garden salad (w/about 2 tbsp Low-Fat Balsamic Vinegrette dressing)  I didn’t snap any pics, as she doesn’t know about the blog, but it was yummy!  I also had 2 Diet Pepsis 😮

Today was my last day at work 😦 😦

I’ve worked this job for two years (during the school year), and I won’t get into details, but I work with kids!  They’re adorable (and challenging!) and I know I”m going to miss them. Today was a particularly stressful day and just when I thought it couldn’t get any worse…my supervisor and entire staff surprised me with a going away celebration!  I was in a frustrated mood, and I walked in from a different room and they had stalled me, setting up slices of cake (my boss baked 5 cakes!!) , juice, balloons, and 3 three beautiful and heartwarming cards from staff, her personally, and all the kids (complete with pictures!).  I was SO touched, I can’t even say!  I was completely and totally surprised and it instantly made my day 1,000 x better!  I’ll miss you guys!!!!!!!!!!!

Obviously, I had a piece of confetti cake with amazingly creamy frosting.  It was my party after all 😉

After work, I came home and really didn’t have much of an appetite.  I know I need to eat up a lot of food in my freezer and cabinets before I graduate, so I had plans to make a frozen pizza and roast up some brussels sprouts and zucchini.  However, once I got home I wasn’t feeling waiting for the veggies to roast, so I got lazy and just made the pizza.  Tee hee

It was a pretty healthy pizza though, a Margherita Pizza, 1/3 of the pie for 240 cals!  And it’s the most delicious frozen pizza I’ve ever had!  I had about 1/3 of it, but honestly I’m still hungry so I may go back for more 😉
