First Day Back And The Breakfast Cookie

Posted by Susan on November 24, 2009

OK , first of all I am super late in posting tonight ! I got my hair done after work today and didn’t get home until 5:30 !!!!!! Matt picked up Kate [niece] up from school , did homework with her, and fed her dinner. By the time I got home I had to give her a quick bath before her mother came to pick her up ! I didn’t get to lunch packing and dinner making and eating until almost 7:00 ! I’ve already faced facts that I will probably not be in bed before 9:00 tonight ….. oh well , can’t be helped !

This morning was my first day back to working out and it was great ! I felt energized afterward , like old times !! I usually do body weight circuits 3x a week, but this month I decided to do a weight circuit. I had one tucked away that I tore out of Oxygen Magazine a few months back , and decided to give it a go ! It felt really good , and it was a nice change of pace. After the circuits I did 30 min. of HIIT on the treadmill. I’m glad to be back ! A vacation from working out turned out to be a nice place to visit ….. but I wouldn’t want to live there , you know ?

About the Breakfast Cookie. I used a little bit too much liquid when making it, so it was a little wetter than I think it was supposed to be , but the texture did not do anything to alter the taste . It was delicious ! Really ! And the best thing is, I ate it at 5:30 this morning and wasn’t hungry at all until 11:15 !!!! For me that is incredible ! I made another one to have tomorrow , using less liquid . I am trying to see if the satisfaction I got from it today was a fluke, or are these things the answer to my prayers ! A yummy breakfast that sticks with me for hours ! Who ever invented this recipe out there in Blogland is a GENIUS !!!!! I love them !

At 11:15, when my stomach started rumbling, I had some baby carrots and humus .

At 2:00 , I finally broke for lunch ! I had the old stand by. Chobani and puffed wheat cereal. I had about half of that apple, I ended up getting paged in the middle of it and was off and running again before I had a chance to finish it.

After work , as I mentioned I was off to get my hair done. I was there for 2 hours ! I got the works, cut , color and a touch up on my highlights , just in time for the holiday. By the time I got home I was really hungry. I needed something quick, easy , and yummy.

This meal has become my Monday go-to meal. My Chicken Quesadilla , made with Kashi Fiery Fiesta rice, re-fried beans, 1/2 a chicken breast and reduced fat cheddar cheese on a  tortilla. So good ! I also had a spinach salad with it.

Dessert tonight , 100 calorie Oreo Cookie Cakes and a glass of milk. I find that if I have 1 c. of Fat Free Milk with dessert, it fills me up and I don’t snack later on in the night.

I have another long day ahead of my tomorrow , so I think I will take a shower and crawl into bed ! Only 2 days to work !!!!! Have a great night !

  1. i meant to ask you but didnt because I must have had a brain fart, but giving your results…

    – are you going to eat more (calorie wise?)

    – take more time off, 2 days instead of 1 a week?

    just curious…

    I just wrote down that cookie recipe. Gonna give it a shot. Though I think I only have strawberry protein powder at home … hmmm, not sure how that will be.

    Sure feels nice to get back to workouts doesn’t it.
