I'm on a roll

It's 8:20am and I've already made scrambled eggs and turkey bacon for the kids and myself.  They are dressed down to the shoes (shoes are key) and I don't have to leave for carpool duty for 30 more mins!!!  Amelia is having a play date with her bff.  So I'll have some official alone time and I plan on going to Trader Joe's for some good stuff.  I haven't been there in forever. We need some basics and I need to stock up on some frozen prepared stuff.  I plan to have another bout of cooking and freezing here soon, but in the mean time I want to get some easy stuff that will prevent us from dialing take out.  

I took the dog and walked 2 miles yesterday.  I think my dog gets car sick.  Once we got to the park she promptly took a dump and then threw up.  Then she was happy as a clam walking.  Two miles felt good in the cold weather.  So much more manageable.  And, of course, by the end of the walk I feel like a bowling ball is literally in my pelvis.  Ain't that just precious????
I swear every time I go on that route I envision myself bolting into a run and feeling my body move faster.  I cannot wait to run again.  I say that a lot...

Tonight the family is going to see the Atlanta Thrashers.  Ed's been asking me if we'd want to go to a hockey game before the baby is born.  The four of us.  We figured we might as well get it in now.  Fischer has a blast.  Amelia has never been.  I'm hoping she'll love it.  But there's always that possibility that she revolts and I end up walking her around the shops in the arena.  Whatever the case, it will be a fun experience for the kids.  

Today's line up:

Scrambled eggs
Turkey bacon
Glass of skim milk

Grande non fat, no whip mocha- add protein

Salad with feta, chicken, almonds, cranberries with homemade honey dijion vinegarette

String cheese
Handful of almonds
RRL tea

Hockey game (I'll try my best to keep it at a reasonable portion!)

FYI- I recently discovered that I could add protein to my mochas at Starbucks.  Granted, it's only 5g- but hey!  Good to know..
