The After Bloat

Began the day with a full stomach so I made use of it and did 35 minutes of mixed aerobics and a quick shoulder workout.  Shane and I went for a walk then we played a little frisbee in the track field.

Back track a bit… why I have a full stomach is because at about 7:30 PM I had a snack attack. Instead of picking here and there, I decided to make a healthy salad. Healthy in portion size and ingredients.

  • 1 1/2 cups mixed salad greens.
  • 1/4 cup black eyed peas
  • 1 oz feta cheese
  • 2 tbs Annies F/F Raspberry Vinaigrette.

It did the trick with the fiberous ingredients for fill as well as a little sweetness from the dressing.  I followed up with a nice warming cup of Vanilla Carmel Truffle Black Tea:

Even though that was a big “snack” and I simply went to bed an hour after eating it, I still had the stomach power to make a delicious, breakfast omelet.

  • 1 cup chopped spinach
  • 3 sliced cherry tomatoes
  • 1 slice of hot cherry pepper, diced
  • 1 oz Feta cheese
  • 3/4 cup Egg Beaters
  • 1 Ezekiel Pita Pocket, toasted
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • Topped with sprinkles of hot sauce and 1TBS Salsa

For my fruit, I added 1/2 a grapefruit on the side and a wonderful cup of coffee, sweetened with my favorite, Stevia sweetener.

The rest of the day entails more food preparation and the enjoyabe company of friends.  Unfortunately, Richard had to leave early and won’t be with us this afternoon as he is having a problem with his foot and needs more medicine from home.  We’ll miss his company. 

Everyone, enjoy your Friday, hopefully you have the day off and don’t need to participate in the “BLACKNESS” of it (get it? … “Black Friday”…9750).  Lookin’ forward to left overs.
