Nesting June 18, 2012

Filed under: Uncategorized — labreeska @ 6:39 pm

I’m in serious go mode today.  I’m 32 weeks pregnant, so I think the nesting is in full swing.  Today I have cleaned out two closets, excercised at the gym, dropped off junk at goodwill, made a delivery of more junk to our storage unit, bought a baby swing at consignment, returned some borrowed stuff to a friend’s house, had breakfast, had lunch, pulled up weeds in our landscaping, and it’s just now 2pm.


  • 1/4 cup oatmeal, with 1 TB of dark choc. chips
  • coffee with 2TB creamer


  • Pine nuts


  • leftover tomato soup with cheddar cheese (about 1 cup)
  • leftover bean casserole (about 3/4 cup)


  • 12 black cherries
  • 1/4 cup blueberries
  • 1 hr. later: chocolate covered 1/4 banana
  • 1 hr. later: tortilla chips and salsa

(I was super hungry this afternoon because I worked so hard)


  • Baked breaded fish
  • Fried zuccini in panko chips and olive oil
  • Sauteed green beans with cashews


  • 2 peanut butter cookies & milk

Notes:  Whenever I mention chocolate chips, it always means dark chocolate.  I don’t buy chocolate unless it’s at least 75%.  I froze the peanut butter cookies leftover from last night, so that I wouldn’t be tempted to eat all of them today.  Even though they are fairly healthy and contain no sugar, I know I shouldn’t eat the whole batch.  so hard to resist.
