Moving day, Taco night

Ciao tutto!
Sorry for the lack of posting today, it was quite the busy day to say the least!
I got up around the usual time and make breakfast. I was craving oats, so I made myself a big creamy bowl of oats using 1/2 cup rolled oats, 1 cup nonfat soy milk, a sliced banana, a tablespoon of honey peanut butter and a few raisins on top.

Hit the spot!
After breakfast I headed to the gym, where I did a quick in-and-out 40 minute workout- 30 minutes running/walking on the treadmill and 10 more minutes on the elliptical. I jumped off and ran out- I knew we had to get going ASAP!! After a quick errrand I came home, showered and snacked on a plum on the way to Newport.

Nick and I stopped at The Picnic Basket for delicious sandwiches- I had my favorite, the Ed-wich- turkey, mozarella, roasted red peppers, spicy honey mustard, lettuce and tomato on basil foccacia. Perfection!!

I also had three of Nick's chips:

After grabbing lunch (I ate it in the car!) we headed over to Nick's new apartment to help him and his roommates move in. I definitely got a workout moving all that furniture! But it was a fun day, his roommates are really cool so it made it a good time!

We stopped at a 7-eleven on the way out, because I had never been to one and Nick insisted I try their famous slurpie.

I had a 12-oz one, and an apple to hold me until dinner.
We did some grocery shopping, and then headed back home for Nick's dinner suggestion- Tacos!! I hadn't had tacos in a while, and they were great! We made our with lean ground beef cooked with onions and taco seasoning, refried beans, reduced fat mexican cheese, salsa and cilantro. I also snacked on some baby carrots while prepping the filling!

I had one more after this- 3 altogether!

It was a good dinner, I'm full but not too full. I decided to stop after three tacos, and then Nick "forced" me to eat a spoonful of refried beans. Just 'cuz I love them so much. I know, I'm weird. ;)

(that's his "EAT IT!" joke-screaming face)

Now we're off to do MORE MOVING- some of my stuff from my parents' place, before finally settling in for the night. Phew, it has been a LONG day!!
