I did a very thorough job of scuffing up a brand new pair of shoes today. I bought my work boots four years ago and didn’t end up needed them at the time. So this morning, when I got to go on site for the first time, my shoes were still shiny and perfect. Not so much anymore…spending a few hours crawling around scaffolding hammering at the roof will do a quick job of scratching up the toes of steel-toed boots. But had fun doing it 🙂 There’s even the bonus that I got to leave home over an hour before I usually do, and got back an hour earlier too because a big chunk of my commute was cut away and our working hours were a bit shorter to allow for travel time for some people from the office to the site.
In anticipation of a busy, and different kind of workday I enjoyed a leisurely and large breakfast. I started with a bowl of Kashi High Fibre Flakes and Granola cereal with strawberries and milk.
Then I dug into two sunnyside up eggs topped with chopped sage, and paired with orange pepper strip. Delicious, and held me over very well until lunch.
Lunch I fixed up a mess salad of broccoli, zucchini, and chicken breast tossed in yogurt, whole grain dijon, and a handful of chives. Tasty and refreshing, as usual.
Plus I had a Nature’s Path Optimum Energy Peanut Butter Bar. The bar was really good, kind of like a peanut butter cookie, but less sweet (which is a good thing). I would have liked it if the peanut flavour was a bit stronger, but it was tasty regardless.
When I got home I finished my lunch salad with the addition of a handful of dried cherries (and didn’t take a picture, sorry).
Then when I was hungry for dinner I stared in the fridge indescisively for a while, then finally blended up a slighty disgusting looking but very tasty brown monster. In the mix was red kale, an apple, and frozen raspberries.
Followed by a Starbucks Peach and Raspberry Yogurt Parfait. Apparently they’ve stopped using Splenda to sweeten their yogurts…
And finally for dessert was a square of dark chocolate. Talk about a weird food mood….
