Wake Up It's Monday

I was wiped out from all the cooking and cleaning I did yesterday. It was extremely hard for me to get my butt out of bed and come to work. Not only was I extremely tired but my husband had the day off which makes leaving the condo even more difficult. I would much rather stay at home with him and the dogs then be in a cube all day;)

Once I got to work it wasn't all that bad. Lately, I have plenty of stuff to keep me busy so the days go by fast, love that! I really despise those slow days when time seems to stand still or even move backwards.


I started my day off with a Dr. Pepper, I know healthy, right? Just kidding, I know it is the worst option for a morning beverage but I needed the caffeine.

I was shocked by this Cinnamon Roll Lara bar. I've tried other Lara bars and haven't really liked them. I pretty much gave up on purchasing anymore but I found this bar in my snack drawer and decided to try it. I'm really glad I did because it was super tasty!


I wasn't really hungry for lunch but new I needed to eat something or else I would be starving later. I opted for the Smokey Navy Bean soup, it was delicious!

I could really taste the smoky flavor and boy oh boy did this soup fill me up.

I also had a small side of pasta salad. Basically it was penne noodles with broccoli and a light Italian vinaigrette.


Around 2:15 I started getting a little sleepy so I stepped out to get a Starbucks skinny vanilla latte.

So that pretty much sums up my day (so far) in food choices. Tonight we are going to a new (to me) restaurant, Zapitista. It is a Mexican restaurant that has "all you can eat" taco specials on Monday's.

Wish me luck! Totally going to need it to help me stop eating the tacos!


  1. I've gotta try that larabar!

  2. Mondays are always tough! Glad you made it through ;) Love the cinnamon roll lara. Have fun at Mexican!

  3. I have Cinnamon roll larabar that I haven't tried yet... had a pecan pie bar which was tastes

  4. I hate having to go to work when my family is home. Just doesn't seem fair....

    The cinnamon roll Lara Bar is my favourite one, too. I'm not so fussy on the others.
