Pot Luck

Friday, 11/20/09 has finally arrived and I had a really nice day, which was a nice change from the typical “crazy” Friday’s I usually have!  =)

My morning was a whirl wind that included a stop for a chocolate covered donut for my little one (a treat she gets every few weeks for breakfast), then a stop to get gas, a drop off at the bus stop and a pick up at the dry cleaner before I got into work.

Once at work, which was a short trip do to the lack of traffic….a wonderful holiday side effect, I grabbed a yogurt from the fridge for breakfast and a cup of coffee.

Breakfast

I ate a really “light” breakfast this morning as I have an office Pot Luck to attend at noon in which TONS of great foods & deserts will be available so I need to save some room in my tummy and also save on some fat/calories!  =O

I was able to do a little blog surfing in the at work this morning and I read an excellent & very informative post from Tasha @ The Clean Eating Mama about “Her Clean Eating Philosophy”, so I asked her if she would mind if I shared what she had to say on my blog and she said yes, so check it out at the below link:

At noon I went over to my other office for a Pot Luck Lunch and had the following, sorry I didn’t take any pictures as the whole office was there while eating and I knew they would find it strange that I was taking pictures of my food………….=(

  • Broccoli Salad
  • Sheppard’s Pie
  • Pulled Pork on a 1/2 of a Hamburger Bun
  • Mac & Cheese
  • Green Beans

Deserts from the Pot Luck were put in a Tupperware container and brought back to the office to share with my boss and enjoy around 3pm.  I got a pic of these for you since I ate them all by my lonesome in my office along with an apple so I could be partly “healthy”.  =)  Here is a list of what I sampled:

  • Pumpkin Mouse (made by my friend Lindsay)
  • Peanut Butter Pie
  • Tiny Brownie
  • Yellow Cake w/Chocolate Icing 

Deserts

Once I departed from work I stopped by the grocery store for some dinner items for tonight, then dropped them off at home, picked up my daughter from school, than dropped her off at her Girl Scout meeting and then headed home to make dinner which was a “Friday Night Special” of course, yes you guessed it, PIZZA!!!  

Dinner

The rest of the evening was spent relaxing and watching t.v. with my hubby as we were all alone for the evening!  =)

TIP OF THE DAY!

Rule #4: Give up your seat to trim your bottom line.

Even regular exercisers could benefit from extra toning of their tush, the largest muscle group in the body, which dozes all day at your desk job. “When you’re walking or running, it’s your hamstrings, hip flexors, and calf muscles that get the most work,” says FITNESS advisory board member Vonda Wright, MD, an orthopedic surgeon at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center. “Unless you’re going uphill, your glutes don’t play a major role.” The good news? If you bailed on doing those butt-firming squats during your workout, you can easily sneak them in when your cube mate isn’t looking. Stand up from your chair, feet shoulder-width apart. Lower your bottom to the seat as though you’re going to sit, touch down, and then spring up, squeezing your glutes as you straighten. Do three sets of 10 to 15 reps two or even three times throughout the day.

      It is always good to work on the rear end! =O

      Yeah, me too that is why I asked her if I could mention it on my blog. I love her tips! =)

    Your pizza always looks so good. Do you make your own dough?

    • November 23, 2009 at 6:53 pm

      No I actually use a store bought dough next to the biscuits. I will take a picture of it and post it next time. It comes out really good, compared to others I have tried.
