Another Great Day

Hello! work today was awesome! I'm really loving working there!! I have tomorrow off and I work Friday, Saturday and Sunday. I only worked 4 hours today because they were training 2 other girls.

I'm finally back to eating normal. I had some yummy oats for breakfast with flax and filled me up till 1 o clock. Lunch was a Peanut Butter Cookie Larabar, a vanilla Activia yogurt and a venti cappuccino from Starbucks. Yum. I only had 20 minutes for lunch :(

Today after work my friends picked me up and they threw a congrats for your new job and congrats on being single, get together. ha ha. it was nice. Here are a few pics.

6 plum tomatoes, halved lengthwise
2 teaspoons 365 Everyday Value Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Salt and ground black pepper to taste
1/2 cup 365 Everyday Value Grated Parmesan Cheese, divided
1/4 cup chopped basil
1/2 pound 365 Everyday Value Organic Whole Wheat Fusilli
2 zucchini or yellow squash, grated
2 tablespoons lemon juice

Preheat oven to 400°F. Arrange tomatoes on a large parchment-lined sheet tray, cut-sides up. Drizzle with oil; season with salt and pepper. Scatter 2 tablespoons Parmesan and 2 tablespoons basil evenly over top. Roast until juicy and bubbling, about 20 minutes; set aside. Meanwhile, bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add fusilli and cook until al dente, 10 to 12 minutes. Drain and transfer to a large bowl. Add zucchini, lemon juice, remaining 6 tablespoons Parmesan and 2 tablespoons basil. Toss to combine. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Divide pasta onto four plates, top with tomatoes and serve.

Tomorrow I'm going to head to the gym for an hour, get a great workout in. Then head to Whole Foods for some shopping. and then to M.A.C. to get some makeup. My discount doesn't kick in for a few more weeks :( so M.A.C. it is. I'll take some pics of what I get!
