Well, today was interesting to say the least. A seemingly peaceful nap with the pups…woke up, got ready for spin…headed outside…started my car. Started my car. ………..tried to start my car. I was out of gas!!!! I had 20 minutes to get to the YMCA and needless to say panic mode was setting in instantly. I called Kim in a panic, and she started to come get me, when I realized there was a gas station about half a mile from my house. I took off into a FULL OUT sprint towards the gas station. It was hilarious. Got to the gas station, feeling like I was on some cracked out challenge on “The Amazing Race”. Running BACK to my house with the gas can proved hilarious, as I was trying to run at my fastest speed while not spilling the gas all over myself. Got back, gassed up the car…and SPED like a maniac to the gym. I swear I was going 80 the entire way, and a 15 minute drive turned into a 8 minute NASA-like speed show. I was darting in and out of traffic like there was an asteroid heading directly for Earth.
I MADE IT. Barely, but I made it. Oh the things I do for spin. Sheesh. I don’t think I even exhaled until class was over!
When I got home I needed a fun lunch to calm my nerves. ;-)
It was waffle time! I added some Golden Kiwis (which were a bit too ripe today, boo!)
I made a quick topping that was a mixture of some Polaner Natural Peach Jame and some Almond Butter…
A) Car Trouble stresses me out
B) We eat with our eyes first
Which meant it was time for a Waffle Face. ;-) Threw in a banana mouth, and some dark chocolate facial features…
Sorry Sam, but chocolate is bad for dogs. ;-)
After the STRESS of running out of gas (fail), having to RUN to the gas station (EPIC fail), spilling half of it running back/being 5 minutes late for spin (EPIC-EST FAIL!), this lunch was able to de-stress me nicely.
Headed to work complete with snacks for the evening!
I also brought dinner from home which I started making early. It was my first experience with Tempeh! Time for a wrap!
It was also my first experience with these Whole Spelt wraps…super yummy!!!
Started by spreading some of Amy’s re-fried beans on the wrap…
I then browned up the tempeh and layered it across (there may have been a TRACE of red pepper flakes as well. )
I topped with lettuce and natural cheese…and wrapped that sucka UP!
Once I was at work, and hangry, I paired it with some new hummus chips, and carrots:
Well, time to close the YMCA down and head home. Have an awesome rest of the night bloggies…I am coffee shopping tomorrow for my new French Press!! Can’t wait! Still looking for suggestions, hint hint. Something flavored perhaps?!
