carbs, ikea and more carbs

March 1, 2009

breakfast shouldn’t be to much of a surprise: a smoothie- this one had half a banana, soy milk, and half packet of raw powder. i also had a mini buttermilk pancake.


we woke up to snow and while it was light, i wanted to save the museum trip for weather when i can make a whole day of it and walk around the city. we ended up going to ikea instead, but the trip turned out to be a total bust! i’ve been waiting for a bookcase to come back in stock since january and have been religiously checking the website to see if it’s in. i saw last night that they had 20 pieces in- finally! we didn’t check stock before we left because i figured, who would go to ikea on a snowy day? boy was i wrong- it was SO packed in there and the damn bookcases are sold out again! boo! i’m actually sick of going to ikea now 😦

but backtracking a bit, i had a slice of zucchini carrot bread and half a huge orange before we left.


after finding out the bookcase was out of stock, i consoled myself with a little something from the ikea cafeteria…


yummy, this one deserves more than one pic, don’t you think?


i totally thought i could finish this- but apparently there’s only so much chocolate that even i can take…


that put me in a little better of a mood, but i was still walking around all mopey until i saw THIS:


poodle puppiesssss! LOVE LOVE LOVE!


ikea redeemed itself, and i bought some candles and went home. i did 30 minutes of yoga and fixed myself a quick dinner of leftover pumpkin ziti! i, umm, unveganized it by adding some cheese.


and i went back for seconds! i hesitated because i definitely didn’t need more carbs, especially after the cake at ikea. but i really wanted seconds and a treat is a treat, so if i let that piece of cake dictate what i eat at dinner, it really isn’t a treat, right? did that make sense?

anyways, i had another plate of ziti, and sipped a large mug of green tea afterwards.


and that’s it! i’m full of carby goodness and tomorrow i’ll get in more fruits and veggies. hope you’re all staying warm, i have a busy work week ahead of me but i’ll keep my fingers crossed for a snow day for those of you in school!

    I’ve been extra-carby lately, too! Must be going around 😉 Everything looks so great. I’ve never eaten at Ikea but I could be tempted with that cake.
