Productive

April 12, 2011

Really having a variety of breakfasts lately vs my normal routine of eating the same thing for weeks. Today I had Chobani Pomegranate Greek Yogurt and mixed with Kashi Good Friends cereal.


I love this yogurt! It is thick and creamy with tons of protein. It is basically plain tart Greek yogurt with the flavoring on the bottom you mix in. It’s delicious. Paired with some crunchy cereal I really enjoy it.

Morning snack was an apple and some mixed nuts.


Lunch was a tortilla crusted lean cuisine. I think it’s official that this is my favorite lean cuisine. The fish is so tasty and the rice has lots of corn and peppers and a delicious sour cream sauce. Perfect for hot sauce transport also. Out of the microwave:

My preparation:


I had a dr apt today and left work at 2:30. I had some grapes on the road.


Afterward it didn’t make much sense to return to the office for like 20 min so I ran some errands before my nightly gyming. I picked up some awesome cheap produce at this obscure stand on Ridge Ave which you will be seeing this week, got a pedicure for the wedding this weekend, went to the bank, and other odds and ends. Feeling productive.

I snacked on a fiber one bar and a small Dunkin donuts coffee with skim milk and sweet n low while running aforementioned errands.


Fitness: usual Tuesday routine of Pilates and teaching my spin class. I even had time to knock out my pushups which was not as difficult as i thought they would be since I lifted yesterday. I am still on w4d2 and in at 25-29-25-25-25. The last set should be 46 so I’ve got a ways to go.

Dinner was planned out to be quick (I’ve learned my lesson about starving on Tuesdays and needing food fast). I had spaghetti and meatball leftovers from Sunday.


-whole grain pasta
-baby Bella mushrooms
-grape tomatoes
-sauce
-pineapple teriyaki chicken meatballs
-some RF Parmesan
-side of sprouted soy crunch bread with spray butter


It was actually better today because the sauce had a chance to thicken up. Muy delicioso.

I forgot…

March 10, 2011

I forgot… To write my post throughout the day. Weird. I almost always blog throughout the day as I eat things or to plan what I will eat. Today I got to the iPad and there were no drafts. I was so confused. I had forgotten to blog. Blaming this on being very busy at work today. I had a few meetings, some small task and one big project that I was really getting into. The project is what I am calling Marketing Department: Buried Alive. I am de- and organizing (and throwing out stuff in) our space and I’m feeling very productive. I need to do this to my stuff.

Anyway the eats of the day…

For breakfast I was craving yogurt didn’t have any. I picked up a fruit n’ yogurt parfait at McDonalds and I added some cocoa roast almonds to bulk it up a bit.


It think I’ve only had this one other time but it is delicious a great fast food breakfas option.


Banana morning snack on top of the rain boots I had to wear to work today.


Lunch was one of the last diet-to-go meals, Chicken Philly Sub.


-whole wheat roll
-tiny piece of grilled chicken
-onions and a tiny spec of pepper
-slice American cheese
-honey mustard mayo
-peach cobbler


This was a disappointment. The chicken was minuscule, there were barely any peppers, mayo…really?! and A slice of yellow cheese. Bleeh.


I put some mayo because I thought it might be too dry without on the other half of the bread I put hot sauce.


The alleged peach cobbler was just yogurt with canned peaches so I gave it away.


I ate these baked tortilla chips instead.


Unsatisfying meal. :(

Afternoon snack was half a pint of strawbs.


Vita top dreaming of the beach.


Fitness: I had volleyball today at 6:30 so not too much time to workout. My training had me due to run 3 miles. It was miserable out so I was forced to the treadmill. I managed 3 miles in 26:34. Not too bad but felt pretty painful to me. The treadmill is so boring and for some reason I am much slower on it then I am outside. I chalk this up to being able to set your own run/jog pace outside which actually has me keeping a faster overall pace vs the steady staring at the clock treadmill. Anyway after the run I did W4D1 of the 100 pushup challenge. Recap of this day for ya: 60 secs in between 21-25-21-21-32+. I totaled 111 today doing 21-25-21-21-23. Slowly sloooowly sloooowly getting to the 100 in a row mark. After that I went to volleyball playoff game. We won in 2 games (best 2 out of 3).

I was starving when I got home for dinner! I had to think fast. I went into the freezer and pulled out….


-5 chicken meatballs I bought at Costco
-a TJ’s pasta eggplants dish that I had made, split into 2 portions and frozen one
-carb style wheat toast


I also added olive bar olives, crushed red pepper, “no salt”, and rf Parmesan.


This was a very filling I probably ate a few too many meatballs but they were stuck together so I thought why not.

Now I’m getting to bed early. I most likely have another terrible treadmill workout in the morning. Unless it stops raining PLEASE!
