Packing up

Hello again!
This is going to be a speedy post, because I just spent an hour packing some of Nick's stuff from the apartment and I still need to pack my own things!!

As angry as I still am about the current situation, I feel very refreshed and a lot more in-control of my eating since my 'revelation' on Tuesday.
Last night I had dessert- a small cup of strawberry froyo with half a crumbled home made cookie on top.

It was just enough sweetness to end the night, and I didn't feel the need to eat more.

I woke up at the crack of dawn this a.m. to get some exercise in before work- I had tons to do when I got out so this was my only chance to squeeze some activity in!!
I did 30 minutes of walking on an incline on the treadmill. It wasn't the hour-long gym fest I had planned, but I sure worked up a sweat.

Before I walked I had an unpictured date to suppress any hunger pangs, and then immediately after my shower I made breakfast. I used 1 0% chobani, some strawberries, blueberries and half a banana, topped with some almond slivers.

A parfait in a bowl!

For a snack at work I had this Soyjoy bar.

It was good, but I much prefer the mango variety.

Lunch was leftovers- some tabbouleh and chickpea salad.

I also had my daily chocolate fix-

It was tasty and filling; held me through the rest of my (long, boring) day at work, and then I had planned on meeting with my cousin for coffee, but she forgot, so I decided to go home and grab an apple (and my sister!) instead and pack up some stuff in Newport.

After packing, I was one hungry girl, so I stopped at Natural Foods for a delicious vegan dinner! I chose the vegan chipotle sweet potato soup, and the eggplant mozzarella wrap, which featured sautted eggplant, roasted red peppers, greens and vegan mozzarella in a spinach wrap.

I ate every bite! I'm stuffed, but in a good way.
My sister and I got some organic cookies to have as a treat after dinner as well, I'll probably snack on those while I'm packing away!!

Ok, time to get my stuff together! I'm leaving at 3am, so like I said, I will post when I can or do a recap on Monday! Have a great weekend, everyone!!

Is that wrap Bombay Duck brand? That looks like their font, and their food is usually healthy style like that.
I can only seem to find them in New England (I go to school in Boston) and they are KILLER! The black bean burger wraps are seriously ridiculously awesome. I'll have to keep an eye out for the eggplant!
