Dan’s Birth

February 3, 2011

…day! Happy birthday, little guy.

My camera battery was still dead today so excuse the iPhone photos.

For breakfast I went back to pb, jelly, and fluff. Sooooo delicious.


Morning snack was an apple.


Lunch out courtesy of a work vendor. We went downstairs to our local cafe. They didn’t have the hummus for my usual veggie wrap, so I improvised. This is their fajita wrap without the cheese and sour cream. I ate the first half (this is the leftovers. You get the picture).


It had grilled chicken, peppers, and onions in a panini pressed wrap. I spooned on salsa and hot sauce. I had a tiny 70 calorie bag of chips on the side (not pictured).


In the afternoon, I snacked on a slice of sprouted wheat cinnamon raisin bread topped with spray butter.


The vendor came bearing gifts! This was my favorite one… A Starbucks-like tumbler. I posed my vita top with it. I was embarrassingly excited about this haha.


Fitness: I had a pretty nice (treadmill) run today. 3.5 miles in 30 mins. Then I walked/ jogged to make it 4 miles in 37 mins. After the run I took a yoga class. The class was actually pretty hard. She did a lot of balancing poses in a row which had my legs tiring and cramping up. It also felt good to stretch out after the run. Run then yoga combo is a love of mine.

By the time I got home, I was REALLY hungry so I was glad to have leftovers of Jae’s jumbalaya from yesterday. I think I forgot to mention their were white beans in this also. Tonight leftovers had no sausage and only shrimp (must have scooped poorly yesterday). It was again really good though!


I also had a slice of the ciabatta from last night toasted with spray butter.

And a side of olive bar mix. A few cubes of cheese, mushroom, red pepper, and o’ course olives.


Now my legs are feeling like jelly and it’s time for bed. I haven’t gotten to wish Dan a happy birthday because his phone is dead! Waiting to do that and going to bed.

Hap b, Danathon!

Uneventful day until dinner.

Breakfast was a toasted apple cinnamon fiber one muffin with spray butter and an apple.


Morning snack was half a pint of Blueberries. This batch was better then the other. More tart berries. And a few cocoa roast almonds.


Lunch was a safe way brand chicken and wild rice soup. I think I have officially decided i don’t love wild rice. The aftertaste is weird. This soup was good though. Lots of carrots but not enough chicken.


I had some special k garIic herb crackers on the side. These were delicious and only 90 calories for 24 chips. They donthave much fiber or protein but I bought for the volume.


Afternoon snack was the other half of the blueberry pint.


Later I was still hungry and had a handful of soy nuts.


Vita top in my winter coat.


Fitness: normal wed routine (see my workouts tab). Today I added a bunch of moves I learned from 6 week 6 pack. For some reason when was the leader of these they didn’t seem as hard as when Jillian Michaels leads but still nice to mix up the class a bit.

Dinner was a lovely meal and nova bball. Watch at Jae’s. he made a jumbalaya type dish. It was awesome!


Hoot jumbalaya:
-Spanish rice with peppers and onions
-shrimp coated in Moroccan spice
-mango and jalapeƱo turkey sausage

sides:
-stuffed mushroom with tomato and mozz
-garlic bread

The jumbalaya was a good amount of spiciness.


The stuff mushroom was a delicious addition as well.


I went back for more garlic bread because it had a crispy crust and a soft middle. Sooo good.


Glass of vin on the side.


Then nova beat Marquette. Nice little dinner.

Pardon the photos. Not that my photos are ever that spectacular but my battery died today so these are from the iPhone.
