After my weekend binge (sooo many cookies, 2 fast food stops, wedding hor devours, etc), I knew I had to get back on track this week. I felt like eggs so on my way into work I stopped at McDonalds (yeah, yeah fast food again but it was with good intentions) and got some scrambled eggs. That’s it, 170 calories of eggs. When I got to the office I opened them up and they had thrown a biscuit in there as well. It smelled so good. I looked up the nutritionals for it and opted out. I took the biscuit and immediately tossed it so I wouldn’t be tempted.
I toasted an Arnold multi grain sandwich thin and made a sandwich with the egg and Goya hot sauce. Delicious. I really need to just bring egg beaters and some Pam to work and make my own eggs in the microwave. Da well, this is delicious in the mean time.
I was freezing in my cube and drank the last of a berry tea bag I had during my normal morning snack time.
I ran an errand at lunch and picked up my gift for tomorrow’s Santa’s Sloppy Seconds we’re having at Lunch Club. Excited to see what everyone gets (it’s like white elephant I guess). While out I was able to pick up lots of seasonal teas! Peppermint, pumpkin spice, and more eggnoggn’. I returned to have a chicken noodle soup lunch.
With a side of ranch rice quakes. First time I’ve had the ranch. These were delicious, not too over powering…just right.
Afternoon snack I broke into the peppermint tea. Unfortunately the tea is caffeine free but it is very minty, which i like. And I had a banana.

Fitness: i needed a looooong workout today after the weekend. So I decided to redo last Monday’s gym session. I started by doing pushups for the challenge (yes, still week 4 day 1:( ). I then ran for 30 mins on the treadmill, doing fartleks. These were tough, whenever I wanted to slow down I thought of cookies burning up (burn, burn, burn it up up upppp) haha. Stats:
After that i went to bootcamp class. The hour in there goes so fast! Today she used the bosu ball which was different and really exhausted my arms, abs and legs with different moves. She also used the kettlebell, which I have come to really enjoy. Another great hour and a half gym session and I still was home by 7:30.
I was starving when I got home. I made quick dinner of leftovers. Mixed veggies and white beans from last week, a little TJ wild rice, Morningstar chikn’ patty.
I love these veggies, lots of variety, excellent with hot sauce.
I also have had a love affair with chikn’ patties for a while. Mostly because they are so easy. Just heat in the microwave for 1-2 mins.
I decided I do not like this rice. I threw away most of the bag but kept trying it. It’s okay mixed with other stuff (you know, when the flavor is masked). Anyway I will definitely not be buying this variety again.
I really wanted to try my baking again so I had a cake ball and a cookie after dinner. Both were sooooo good today!! The cake ball was really moist and creamy. It tasted undercooked form the moisture of the jelly- in a good way. And I love the combo of chocolate, raspberry and white chocolate. These are awesome. The cookie is also delicious! They are very fluffy and cake-like and the pb and dark chocolate chips are so good in it. I am so proud of my guilt free desserts. Next time I will have to calculate the exact nutrtionals on these. There will be a next time.
