My First Glo Bar

I am exhausted today - all the stress of full time and overtime work/ 2 classes at school/ GREs and finishing our basement is totally getting to me. I am having a bit of a mental breakdown right now, as I am so frustrated with my messy house, and never ending to-do list. I have always been one who can "do it all" and today, I just am not feeling it. - Sorry ... just had to vent some steam first.

On to my eats ...

This morning I needed a boost of energy, and I got to have my very first Glo Bar!! I ordered these from Angela's bakery "Glo Bakery" . I had the "Awake" bar because I needed to wake up! This bar has a great ingredient list. Check this out:

Ingredients: Oats, organic brown rice syrup, crisp rice cereal, natural peanut butter, hemp seeds, organic dark roast coffee, unsweetened coconut, ground flax seed, organic cane sugar, pure vanilla extract.

Her bars are 100% organic, and vegan! Wow! Oh, and the bar was delicious :-)

Lunch was leftover chicken noodle soup (the last of it), with ketchup in it:

And some Source vanilla yogurt with fresh blueberries on top:

After work I came home and made a quick and easy dinner - pita pizzas! I love how fast these are, and how good they taste. I loaded 2 small pitas (120 calories each) with tons of veggies, including onion, green pepper, tomato sauce, mushrooms, black olives, and pineapple. I then sprinkled some aged cheddar on top and came up with these little darlings:

10 minutes in a preheated oven at 400 degrees, and they are perfect! The hubby put meat on his, but I kept mine veggie.

After dinner I went for my 6th run/walk of the C25K program. This was the easiest so far! It blows my mind that it is getting easier :-) Next time the run time increases - I'm scurrred.

After my run I had a miniture Hawaiian Green Monster (1/2 banana, 3/4 cup milk, 2 big handfuls spinach, 1/4 cup pineapple, tsp coconut):

I am going to bed early (10:30). I need some sleep.

Sweet dreams bloggies.
