"Where the willingness is great, the difficulties cannot be great. "


My new favorite breakfast bowl combination that is making regular appearances...
2/3 cup Kashi Vive cereal
1/3 cup yogurt
1 small red delicious apple
2 tbsp. Skippy's Natural crunchy PB

I attempted to find Kashi Vive at Walmart today and it was not a successful trip. Instead, I ended up buying Kashi GoLean which seems to be similar. When I find Vive again I will be stocking up, no question it has become one of my favorites.

Left over tomato soup with added broccoli, tomato, onion, and red pepper flakes
Arnold thins, toasted
Lettuce, tomato, onion
Laughing cow cheese

I was a bit too full after this meal, probably because I ate it too close to breakfast, but yet again I wanted to get something in my stomach before going into work. Working a schedule that begins at 5PM is terrible for my diet.

"Hujass" salad:
Bed of romaine lettuce, celery, tomato, and onion 
1/2 pear
Morning Star chick'n patty
Raspberry vinaigrette 
I forgot I had feta cheese to top this with until I finished it and was super bummed!

After dinner I decided to make rice krispie treats for some friends tomorrow considering I have the things lying around, but haven't made them yet in fear that I would eat them all myself. Okay...I may have eaten some of what I made off of my spoon, but I didn't indulge in a treat just yet.

Who doesn't love this old classic? Marshmallows, butter, and can you go wrong? I do want to try this with a cereal other than rice krispies though, but can't be sure that people will care much for them. 

Making those rice krispy treats had me craving this more than the treats themselves. Rice krispies in 2% milk topped with 2 tbsp. sugar! Hehehe. It felt so good to eat this combination, almost as if I were a kid again sneaking table spoons of sugar onto my cereal when no one was looking.

I am officially finished with the driver's manual book, now it's review time! Originally I gave myself a two week span, but I am so ready to get this done and over with. For once I actually feel excited to drive. True I am still nervous, but the feeling is passing once I think of all the positives! Watch out everyone you may see me on the road soon enough. ;)

Netflix added Man V. Food to instant watch so I know what I'll be doing tonight!
