I am such a bad doodle mom! Yesterday was another crazy day at work, with one of our guys in Louisville for training and another out sick we were a bit understaffed today. Understaffed = no lunch break. No lunch break = Bentley doesn’t get a mid day potty break :(. I felt SO bad when I got home at 10 last night having left at 6:20 in the morning. That is way too long for the poor little guy and I am now on the search for a dog walker in the Lexington area who I could call on days like yesterday.
Since today is Wednesday and I remembered to take pictures of my eats yesterday I though I would link up with Jenn for WIAW!
I had a ton of snacks with me at work so eating wasn’t a problem yesterday, just getting home to let my dog out. For breakfast I made my favorite smoothie thus far. I put frozen kale, strawberries, banana, peaches, blueberries, and cherries into the blender with some almond milk and vanilla protein powder. SO good!!! I think it was the cherries that made it extra special.
I need to work on making smoothies with lots of different fruits without making enough for 3 large smoothies. I filled a big glass to drink in the car and put two more into the freezer with hopes of enjoying one for dinner. (when I got home from class the ones in the freezer were frozen solid. I need tips on how to store smoothie leftovers!) It probably wasn’t the best idea to drink a smoothie while freezing into the car on the way to work but at least I had some hot coffee to follow.
I snacked on some trader joes trail mix throughout the morning. I think it was an old Christmas mix that my mom had sent back to Lexington with me. Old or not it’s a great mix of sweet, salty, chewy and crunchy.
Before leaving work for class I had the salad I had packed. I had spinach, egg whites and sweet potato. I’m sure your sick of seing this combination but it’s my current favorite lunch. With protein, veggies, and carbs its a great mix that keeps me full for quite a long time.
Our class had a meeting and didn’t get out until later than usual. This is a picture of Bentley from this weekend where he was mad at me for using the dog eating machine (vacuum). I think he was even more mad at me for leaving him alone all day yesterday I tried to make it up to him by adding some carrots, sweet potato and apple slices to his dinner.
For my dinner I sauteed spinach and mushrooms in coconut aminos and made 2 egg whites and 1 egg with turmeric, cheddar cheese, garlic powder and pepper. I think I got in my share of green leafy vegetables for the week!
Any tips for how to find a reliable dog walker to come to your home? There is one doggy daycare in Lexington, but I have to be at work before they open and don’t get off until they are closed.
Tips for how to save leftover smoothies? I know I need to work on the amount of fruit I put into the blender but want to make sure i’m not wasting any leftovers if there are any.
