I was lucky to be able to sleep in until 8 today! I was so excited!!!! I woke up and relaxed for a bit before making coffee and some breakfast. I made some pumpkin spice coffee and French Toast waffles that I got from http://www.seebriderun.com/ They were AWESOME! Adam and I both loved them, I made mine with Aunt Jamima Low Fat Waffles, 2 eggs, skim milk, vanilla and cinnamon. These bad boys kept me full for almost 5 hours!!

The most dangerous cake recipe
5 MINUTE CHOCOLATE MUG CAKE
4 tablespoons flour
4 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons cocoa
3 tablespoons milk
3 tablespoons oil ..or try real butter...worked very well
3 tablespoons chocolate chips (optional)
a small splash of vanilla extract 1 large coffee mug
Add dry ingredients to mug, and mix well. Add the egg and mix thoroughly. Pour in the milk and oil and mix well. Add the chocolate chips (if using) and vanilla extract, and mix again. Put your mug in the microwave and cook for 3 minutes at 1000 watts (high). The cake will rise over the top of the mug, but don't be alarmed! Allow to cool a little, and tip out onto a plate if desired.
Can anyone healthify this for me? maybe take out the eggs? b/c I know you could use soymilk and it would come out great.. but what could be the stand in for the eggy?!?!?

I have to say today was an easy day, there were only 7 kiddies in my class and the morning flew by! I guess I should start with the beginning of my day, where I got my jump start ;) I had a bowl of oats with dried apricots, raisins, a banana, cinnamon and a touch of light vanilla soy milk. I also brought a mug of coffee with me on my very cold walk to work. The oats could've kept me going way past my lunch time at 12, but that's my free time when the kids are eating so I had to bust open the yogurt and apple. I also had some pretzels for some salty goodness. I walked home as fast as I could since it was FRRREEZING! I was starving for some reason when I got home so I ate some peanuts and grapes. That worked to get my through my 2 miles on the treadmill while I watched Oprah. I came home and showered and thought about dinner. My stomach has been funny so I settled on a bowl of the low fat/sodium Ramen Noodles I know this is definitely not the healthiest thing at all but its what I was in the mood for :) I also added a slice of cheese to make it creamy. Just like I did it back in elementary school.. hahah

I woke up feeling very groggy this morning so that could be part of the reason, it carried over the whole day!
Breakfast was a bowl of Honey Bunches of Oats with Almonds, Kashi Go Lean Crunch, banana, cinnamon and Light Vanilla soy milk. I brought a yummy mug of hot chocolate to hopefully kick my butt into gear. It was a busy day today with 13 kiddies and it just seemed chaotic, my aide was in a mood and acted like I couldn't do anything right! UGH!
Lunch was a Dannon Light and Fit Lemon Chiffon yogurt with an huge apple and a serving of pretzel goldfish. :-D I then had 2 oreos at snack time.. damn that snack time! hahah Around 4 I was off to the gym and did alittle over 2 miles on the treadmill and some weights for my arms and back. I also did a bunch of ab work when I got home.
Dinner was leftover Snobby Joe with a salad that had romaine, cabbage, carrots, peppers, some croutons and some ff ranch dressing. I also had 2 bites of Adam's leftover Chicken Murphy from dinner on Monday. We ran out to the supermarket to pick some things up for the weekend and I was craving grapes. I could have (and do have) a bunch of fruit in the house but I just love grapes. They are like candy and yes I ate a ton of them after I washed them :-D YES I AM A DORK!!! When we got home I had another Sugar Free Jello pudding cup in chocolate. I realized I don't really like these too much but I hate to waste food so I'll finish them up and not buy them again ;) lol
I hope everyone had a great Thursday and even a better Friday!
Oh and here is another Question for you:
Have you come across any new and exciting cook books lately? I haven't bought one in a while and I'm going to Barnes and Nobles for Adam and my "date" night tomorrow :-D
