Carbs, carbs & more carbs

Friday's Breakdown:

6:45-7:15am:  2 mile Walk Away the Pounds
I did the ORIGINAL 2 mile "Walk Away the Pounds" which, nostalgically, was the first exercise tape I popped in when I decided I was going to start working out 8 years ago.  And after 8 years...yep, I still break a sweatJ  

8:00am:  Hot Lemon Water

9:00am:  Breakfast- Banana with 1 packet of Justin's Maple Almond Butter
Anyone ever try Justin's?  I like the regular, but for whatever reason I found this one to be really RICH.  My stomach hurt for awhile after.  But I'm weird like that...sometimes Life cereal tastes rich to me:)

10:00am:  Coffee with creamer  (which, if I'm lucky, coincides with a beautiful thing called Katie's NAP TIME!J)

11:45pm:  Lunch-Spinach Quesadillas
Hunger hit FAST and LETHALLY at 11:30, and I just wanted something quick as humanly possibleJ

So I filled half a wheat tortilla with torn spinach & mozzarella...

And a few minutes in our panini press (or skillet/microwave) and I had the warm & cheesy (AND SPEEDY!) lunch I was craving.

Even if I had to share spinach bites with my little nibblerJ

Apparently I become the most important person in the room when it's lunch time!  I had a very attentive audience...both just waiting for any crumbs to dropJ

1:30pm: Snack #1- Chocolate Malt Carnation instant breakfast with 1 cup unsweetened coconut milk

3:30pm:  Snack #2- Strawberries

6:00pm:  Dinner- Ham & Cheese Sliders with Tater tots & hash browns

Has anyone tried this new take on sliders that is SWEEPING Pinterest these days??  They are INSANEEEEEEEEEELY good!
Mini ham & greyere sandwiches topped & baked with a mix of butter (oh yes...I said butter), mustard, Worcestershire, onion powder & poppy seeds (or black sesame seeds when you clear outJ).  A-MA-ZING.  No, for real.  All of the butter goodness soaks into the little Hawaiian sweet rolls (which, um..HELLO, are WONDERFUL by themselves!) and caramelizes while it bakes.  Crazy good...and a VERY simple way to feed a crowd.  (HELLLLLO Superbowl!)

And carbs, carbs and more carbs were just on the menu tonight.
On Friday night, that is ALWAYS acceptable.
