I am wiped. I feel like the vehicle in my subject heading has just slammed into me, turning my insides to Jell-O. I really, really, really don’t want to get up tomorrow for my run. But first, I must fill you in on my festivities last night!
Last night I went to Mohegan Sun to celebrate a very special occasion. Because of the nature of the event, my parents were presented with a goody bag filled with snacks and treats.
I managed to snag three Annie’s Bunnies single serving packs, along with a bunch of Quaker Granola Bars.
After heading down to the restaurant, we enjoyed dinner while I sipped on a glass of Pinot Grigio:
After dinner (a salad with buffalo chicken), we headed to a reception room where we were presented with the best dessert table I think I’ve ever seen!
Chocolate Fondue Fountain. The most beautiful words in the English language. I managed to be good and only had that kiwi slice dipped into the rich liquid.
I was saving my appetite for this baby: Whoopie Pie Sandwich with Peanut Butter Ice Cream.
Along with a cannoli I swiped for my sister, but it went uneaten. I ate about half of this moist, gooey, amazing dessert. Possibly one of the best I’ve ever had. I also had a very, very tiny cupcake and a mint chocolate truffle ball, along with some fruit from the fondue stand (not dipped!). Afterwards, I had a cup of decaf coffee to cleanse my palate.
All in all, I satisfied my raging sweet tooth but I did not go to bed stuffed. I am extremely proud of myself; usually when I see huge displays of dessert like that, I try everything and then feel sick the next day!
This morning my sister and I had an early breakfast, I did a mild ab and arm workout in my room (pushups, situps, a few planks, squats) I went into work. I decided that because I was only working for four hours today I didn’t need a lunch break, so I packed a Superfood Slam ProBar to eat on the fly while I worked.
Back when I worked in a bar last summer in New York, I relied on these as a wholesome meal replacement. They’re all natural, vegan, and stuffed with nuts and fruit. This one in particular had dark chocolate chips in it! I also ate a peach.
After coming home and snacking on one of the sample packs of Annie’s Bunnies (Cheddar! Amazing!) and a few bites of Canteloupe and two Cheddar Combos, I hit the elliptical for an easy 30 minutes, showered, then fixed my dinner.
Mixed Greens with Cooked Broccoli and Balsamic Vinegar
Baked Tempeh Strips with Barbecue Sauce
Rutabaga Fries with Ketchup
I LOVED the texture of the tempeh after it was baked! It gave the tempeh a crunchy texture almost like eating bread crusts (the best part of any bread). And the rutabaga fries were just as good the second time around, if a tad underbaked.
About an hour ago I also had a fruit bowl with 1 nectarine, strawberries, blueberries and a dollop of cool whip
Now off to hopefully sleep off this nausea! 😦
