Here's a picture of me leaping. Ok, not really. It's just a picture of some random lady leaping. I was all out of green flowing fabric, and the Oklahoma landscape is not this pretty
I'm thinking that maybe Leap Day is kind of like Friday the 13th because my cat is acting like a psycho - running through the house and meowing. Just now she climbed the window panes in my office.
You can see the crazy in her eyes.
We've been receiving lots of questions about what we are eating. So, I decide that today's post would be a "What-We-Ate Wednesday" post. Who knows? Maybe, we'll make it a reoccurring event - though I warn you, I have a very high tolerance for eating the same things over and over. "What-We-Ate Wednesday" could be a real snoozer after the first two weeks.
The day begins at 12:00:01 a.m. So, I shall start there.
At 12:00:01 a.m., I was in a blissful slumber dreaming of chocolate chip cookies with gestating Oreos tucked inside:
At 1:34:00 a.m., I woke up because Psycho Cat was nose-to-nose with me and was licking my chin. I couldn't fall back to sleep because

Sabra Roasted Red Pepper Hummus
2 Advil and Water
At 5:00 a.m. and after a few more hours of sleep, I had some warm water mixed with an Arbonne Pomegranate Fizzy Tab before I went to the gym. After the gym, I made this beautiful concoction for breakfast:
|One Whole Egg and Two Egg Whites|
Zuchini, Yellow Pepper and Cherry Tomatos
Whole Wheat Toast with Almond Butter
Coffee with Coconut Milk
Riveting, right? Stop holding your breathe . . .
Because our lunches looked like this:
|Jenni's Lunch: Spinach and Mixed Greens Salad with Chicken, |
Ham, Mushrooms and my own Red Wine Vinegar/Olive Oil Dressing
Sabra Roasted Red Pepper Hummus and 34 Degrees Cracker Crisps
|Elizabeth's Lunch: Mixed Greens with the Same Dressing|
Progresso Soup and Saltines
At different points during the afternoon, we [separately] snacked on some air popped popcorn seasoned with
|Elizabeth's Half-Eaten Bag|
Mine was 3x this Full When I Started
Throughout the day, I sipped on some water with cucumber slices.

Thank You, Tara
Meanwhile, Elizabeth had another afternoon snack:
Do you see a reoccurring hummus theme here? Yes, we are chickpea connesuirs.
While preparing my dinner, I used the new Rachel Ray knife that my mom gave me today. It means serious business.

for taking pictures of me nearly
cutting off my fingers
|Crazy Serious Knife|
It is so menacing that Awesome Jeff wondered alloud why my mom was providing me with weaponry and questioned whether she still wants him around.
Our dinners included more roasted vegetables. Elizabeth mixed hers with eggs to create a stunning frittata:
|Two Eggs and Two Egg Whites |
Mixed With Roasted Vegetables and
|Yes, That is Bacon Crowning the Veggies|
I, on the others and, paired my veggies with a piece of tilapia topped with avocado.

Roasted Butternut Squash and Chickpeas
So there you have it folks! A whole day's worth of eating. It was delicious and nutritious and completely satisfying. And, for your further reading pleasure, here is our nutrition totals for the day:
