dreary + snacky

no, those aren’t the names of two new dwarfs.

yesterday was a dreary, rainy day at the garden, and it definitely reflected on my mood. i was cranky and didn’t feel like doing anything. sadly, today’s weather looks the same. i need some sunshine!

to combat the drearies, i made a delicious lunch!

two corn tortillas, each topped with sauteed red and green peppers and onions, spinach, tomatoes, sour cream, and salsa.  it was delicious and kinda helped.

i was also snacky like woah all afternoon. i had two english muffin halves, toasted, and each spread with half nutella and half crofter’s raspberry spread that i got on our willy street co-op adventure.

[the muffins were inhaled too quickly for a photo.]

i still wanted to keep eating, but that would be no good, so i headed to the gym…with brad! he’s getting a membership too!

we did a quick treadmill warm-up and then did weights. i discovered that i 100% prefer quicker paced weights workouts that leave me shaking, like body pump, than “manly” weight lifting, aka doing 3 sets of a bunch of different moves. it took so long and we didn’t even finish our last set because i missed a medicine ball toss and got hit in the nose. 😦

after a womp womp gym experience, all i wanted was food when we got home, so i threw together this dinner.

it’s orzo and steamed zucchini, yellow summer squash, and broccoli, topped with cheesy zucchini sauce. with a few tiny sad fries on the side.

then i still wasn’t satisfied, and went back for a treat.

this cherry bing frozen yogurt was an impulse buy a while ago when liz and i did the shopping! i’m glad it’s lasted so long in the freezer…! isn’t it pretty??

then i brushed my teeth and closed the kitchen for the day to prevent even more snacking!

do you ever have snacky days?

how do you prevent yourself from going overboard?

  1. Hi! I usually just have to tell myself all of the snacks will be there tomorrow and convince myself of that so I wont just pound every snack in sight.

  2. Cheesy Zucchini Sauce? Did I forget that that post happened?

    And I am always snacky. 🙂

      I think my sister posted about it – I’ll check and if she didn’t, I’ll make sure one of us does!

      it’s just steamed zucchini & squash, a little shredded cheese, and a splash or two of milk all blended up!

  3. brushing your teeth is the best trick!

  4. “snacky like whoa” lol

  5. Mmm… frozen yogurt… delish! I definitely do the brushing-my-teeth thing too if I’m in a snacky mood and I know that I’m not really hungry. 🙂
