My Weekend, in a Nutshell

Sorry I’ve been MIA this weekend. I intentionally took Friday night off, but then we had a small family crisis come up on Saturday so I didn’t feel like blogging.

Here’s my weekend, in a nutshell.



Breakfast – almond butter/banana/raisin rollup with scrambled eggs (1/2 cup of egg whites + 1 whole egg)

Post-workout Evening Snack Kay’s Naturals Apple Cinnamon Protein Cereal with soymilk. This cereal was delicious! It reminded me so much of Apple Jacks.

I skipped out on my exercise in favor of a couple glasses of wine instead. It was that kind of day – family crisis.


I got out of the house by myself for a few hours. I stopped at my mom’s for a cup of coffee, went to Target, and then to the grocery store. It was some much needed alone time, although I came home $200 poorer.




Breakfast – Toasted whole wheat sandwich thin with almond butter and banana, and scrambled eggs (1/2 cup of egg whites + 1 whole egg)

Afternoon/Evening Graze-a-thon – We went to my dad’s to watch the Patriots game today. No pics (bad blogger :-() but here are some of my eats:

  • veggies and hummus
  • tortilla chips and bean dip
  • chicken, Mexican rice, and black beans
  • an apple

No need to make dinner tonight. Fabulous!


I pulled double duty today. I did Biggest Loser Power Sculpt in the morning and rode my Spinning bike for 30 minutes in the evening. I guess I was feeling guilty about skipping out yesterday.


I suppose I already covered the fun for the day above. πŸ™‚


I’m so happy tomorrow is Monday! Weird, I know. Most people dread Mondays. Being unemployed, however, I welcome Mondays because it’s the start of a new week to search and apply for jobs. I feel helpless on the weekends because I can’t make any progress!

Do you dread Mondays? Or do you welcome the start of a new week?

    i am loving that roasted butternut squash…YUMMMM! and those protein shakes are looking so good too!

    good luck with the interview and happy (almost) monday!

  2. Wow! What a great recap!
    I admit that most of the time I dread Mondays. But that’s only because I don’t exactly love my job right now. If I loved what I did I would look forward to every Monday!

  3. I hope everything is alright!! PB Zbar – love it πŸ™‚

    I don’t dread any day, really. It’s just another day in my world. I guess it helps that I don’t have class/work on Monday AND How I Met Your Mother is on! Congrats on getting another interview!

  4. Your Friday breakfast was my breakfast today!
    And it was a first for me!

    I’ll be totally honest I dreaded Monday this week. I am kinda living for the weekends at the moment…but that’s ok. Haha.

    Crossing fingers and toes for you on this interview!!!

  5. Mondays aren’t my favorite, but I do love them for their incredible trash TV lineup πŸ™‚

    hope all is well in the family! good luck with the interview love ❀
