Case of the Mondays

Today has not been my day.

I should have known when I turned my alarm OFF instead of hitting snooze  :)



Breakfast was good, at least!




This bowl was:

  • 1/2 cup dry oats
  • 1 cup water
  • pinch salt
  • heaping tsp. of cinnamon
  • 2 Tbsp total of walnuts/almonds
  • 1 cup pineapple chunks
  • 1 Tbsp unsweetened coconut


This was a really good mix (again), but I forgot the little bit of brown sugar I used on this mix last week!  It was still good without it, though.



Work was just insane today – I am  so glad today is over.  Do you ever have those days when you just wish you could walk out and not come back?  That’s about how my morning went today. I guess everyone has these days every now and then, but it doesn’t make them any easier.


Lunch was pretty good, but probably not exciting picture-wise  :)


I had some bulgur topped with frozen->thawed meatballs and sauce from last week. Still good after being frozen!





Plus some peas, green beans, and yellow wax beans on the side.





I packed clementines, but work was so busy and weird that my appetite wasn’t what it normally is.



Dinner used up some leftovers in a different way. It was good and just what I needed.


Cumin Chicken Taco Salad





  • 1/2 cup fat free refried beans
  • 1/4 cup brown rice/salsa mixture
  • 1 piece of the cumin/oregano chicken from the other night, diced
  • 1 roma tomato, chopped
  • 1.5 cups romaine
  • diced avocado
  • drizzle of 2 tsp. olive oil and some lime juice



This is one of my favorite ways to get in a LOT of veggies  :)


I also heated up some of my BSI entry, the Barley Date Pudding. It hit the spot. Creamy and comforting.





I’m off to have a glass of milk – I can tell I haven’t had enough calories today since I’m kinda hungry again.


I don’t like when work gets in the way of my eating  :)


  1. I agree. Work getting in the way of eating is a royal PITA :)

  2. Taco salad looks amazing, and what an awesome idea to put pineapple in oatmeal!

  3. Where can I find the recipe of your barley pudding? Looks wonderful to me!

    • Grandmahoney: Check my post titled “Dinner and my First Ever BSI Entry” – that’s where the recipe is.
