Woke up this morning with really sore teeth. Waa. I kept my crest white strips on a touch too long last night and now my teeth are sensitive.
I drove to work contemplating what breakfast would be. I knew I wanted to incorporate fruit into it though, since this week has been lacking. Realization- coworker who didn’t like whole wheat bagel thins gave me her stash.
-whole wheat bagel thin
-naturally nutty cinnamon peanut butter
I toasted the thin (the only way I like these) and the peanut butter melted on. Sidenote: This flavor is my least favorite of the naturally nutty flavors and the oil doesn’t incorporate as well as it does in some of the others even though it’s no stir. The pear was hurting my sore teeth so I cut it up and proceeded with caution.
For a snack I dipped back into my fruit stash and had a perfect banana (not too ripe or unripe).
Lunch was an Amy’s frozen Tamale Verde. I don’t buy these often because of the price but I really enjoy them. At lunch i thought that I really should start plating these frozen meals for the blog but i’m thinking its more real this way. So ill stick to their packaging.
I of course doused this in Goya. Mmmm spice.
The tamale did not dissapoint it was good consistency and filling and the black beans inside- although a little sparese were good. My one qualm was when heating this up the rice got nooked while the tamale was still cold in the midle. The rice turned out slightly dry as a result. It could just be the ridiculously powerful microwave at my office that I used. It was still delicious but the rice NEEDED the goya saucing.
For a snack I had brought an apple but I couldn’t bear the thought of biting into it with my sore teeth so ate the rest of yesterdays Kashi Good Friends (1/2 a c about?) and added some pepitas i had at my desk. the pepitas added some salt which was good. and i still liked that i could much on the cereal for a while.
For my preworkout snack– Deep Choclate Dream Vita Top- hiding from the camera in my magazine holder at work. Lame? yes.. but i may make a game of this now haha. You will never know where it may show up next.. just sayin.
Today’s workout was my usual Wednesday routine. I taught my kickboxing class. So many people there today– i loved it it gets me more pumped to teach the more people there are and i think more people enjoy it because if something gets too hard they can just blend into the crowd. Does anyone else really enjoy classes with tons of people either when you are teaching it or when you are in it for motivation?
Afterward I went over to Jae’s for a lovely dinner he prepared.
He made chicken masala and it was delicious and he even made healthy substitutions for me as he always does. He’s so good..
-chicken covered in a little flour
-masala wine sauce
On the side there was a baked potato (cooked in the microwave– about 10 mins for 2) with non fat sour cream, eggplant that he sliced up- baked in the oven for 30 mins, a reduced fat crescent roll, nd of course.. tabasco.
And a glass of red wine that I stole from Chris who was not present. thanks, Chriiiiiiiiiiiiiis!
Jae left me with all the leftovers so I am pretty excited about that for dinner tomorrow or lunch. Alright off to bed.. sans the white strips tonight!
