Snow ? !

Posted by Susan on October 15, 2009

I was in an incredibly negative and foul mood last night so I opted NOT to post ! And you have no idea how lucky you are ! Just ask my poor husband ! I ended up eating dinner and heading straight to bed !

But today is a new day and I am feeling a lot better . I got up this morning and did a 57 min. Spin Class . That helped me shake the funk I was in the night before.


For breakfast I has some oats mixed with Kashi Apple Orchard Granola , a hard cooked egg , and a banana.

At 11am I had a 100 calorie pack of Almonds.



Lunch was my old stand-by. Sorry , but this is easy to pack , delicious , and totally satisfied me until dinner time.  Chobani Peach Yogurt with Kashi Go Lean Crunch .


Dinner tonight was chicken, a sweet potato, and a green salad. I wasn’t really in the mood for sweet potatoes tonight, but I had one left and I was afraid it would go bad if I didn’t get to it soon !


Dessert tonight ….. DC Cake with a dollop of whip cream. I accidentally made this cake with 20 oz. of Diet Coke instead of the 12 0z. the recipe calls for. It ended coming out ever better ! It is really moist , almost brownie like ! It is good without any topping at all.

Today something happened that is very rare for this time of year in Connecticut .



It is crazy ! It never snows this early in the season around here ! It wasn’t sticking to the roads , but we got a pretty dusting on the ground and on the trees. I love winter, so I am happy to see it. My house feels so warm and cozy when it is cold and snowy outside !  I can’t help but wonder though, if it is snowing this early in the season, what will it be like in January and February ?!

I am looking forward to crawling into bed tonight and getting into a good book ! I am so happy tomorrow is Friday ! I am ready for some time off ! Just one more day ! All I have to do is get through tomorrow and I am FREE !

I hope everyone has a relaxing night !

    OK…so if I am going to make this diet coke cake for the first time, how would you recommend I do it? One cake mix, 20oz of diet coke, mix and bake for the time the package says? thanks…
