Taco day

April 8, 2011

After last nights debacle I really want to get a good workout in tonight. Going to try and run 3 miles before hot yoga. Well see if it happens.

I am missing Pb and fluff lately. I gave up pb for lent and I an actually out of fluff. So this morning I made toast with sunflower butter and banana.


-2 slices sprouted soy crunch bread
-tbsp SFB
-banana

This was delicious and hit the spot.

Morning snack was a piece of cold and doughy Philly soft pretzel. .


Lunch was provided by work today. It was a challenge because it’s Friday and I can’t eat meat… And also taco day. Luckily they had veggies and beans. My plates:


-1 flour tortilla
-refried beans
-tomato
-lettuce
-black olives
-pickled jalapeño
-salsa
-guacamole
-little bit of cheese

I also had some chips on the side.


And a diet snapple.


For dessert I had a little coconut chocolate bite thing and a cookie.


The cookies were deliciously soft and under done. Love.

I tried to get back on track in the afternoon but not after pcketing 2 cookies for tonight haha. Cup o’ grapes.


Low fat chocolate chunk granola bar.


Fitness: I hadn’t been to hot yoga in a few weeks and I got another sweet living social deal for the studio near my house so tonight seemed like a good time to return. I was slated to run 2 miles but since I have rescheduled my week a little bit I rushed over to try and get 3 miles in before class. This didnt really work. I only had time for 2. I really pushed it though! One was 8:05 an the next was 8:32. I hurried and went in just in time for class. I really appreciate hot yoga as a great sweaty stretch session during my half marathon training.

Dinner was at home.

Wile I made my salad, I snack on some tribe hummus and everything bagel pretzels. The Tribe Origins is just as creamy and delicious as sabra. Excited other brands are stepping it up!


Dinner…


-greens
-blue cheese
-grape tomatoes
-green beans (uncooked for crunch)
-baby bella mushrooms that I stir fried for a bit
-some of my roommates RF cilantro dressing
-couple scoops of everything bagel pretzels on the side

The salad was good. I made it without eating meat on Friday and did not resort to pizza!


For dessert I had one of the cookies I hoarded from lunch. Still so soft and amazing!

Why my pics aren’t the best

February 10, 2011

My day is going to look pretty similar to yesterday food wise so bear with me…

I really wanted grape nuts for breakfast again… Soooo good.


-1/2 c grape nuts
-1/2 banana
-skim milk
-diff from yesterday, I had a coffee with sweet n low and the extra milk

Morning snack: 1/2 banana and instead of a peach, a nectarine.


Lunch was the lean cuisine pasta Romano with bacon.


With crushed red of course!


This one is good but I wish it had some chicken in it. The pieces of bacon are actually pretty substantial and the sauce is tasty but it’s missing filling protein and/ or some veggies.


Afternoon snack was an apple again but this time I spiced it up and made it a hot cinnamon apple


…and a handful of soy nuts.


Today I remembered my vita top! And I put it behind the camera (taking the pic with my iPhone 3G).


Thought I would show you what I was working with and why many times my pics have bad lighting or are blurry.. Especially compared to other blogs. As a new blogger, I am just using what I have. Right now my focus isn’t on how professional the photos look but more to give glimpses of portion sizes and show off good creations. Eventually… maybe… I will invest in a DSLR but for now my little point and shoot is serving it’s purpose. So I apologize if you think my blog is hideous to look at… But actually I’m not sorry at all.

Fitness: W4D1 100 pushup challenge. By the way you can find the challenge online at hundredpushups.com. Later I went to the gym psyched to do a spin class. I checked to make sure the instructor was good and it was someone I had never heard of so I thought I would try it out. This was the worst instructor I have ever had!! I feel bad saying that (usually i think of instructors as just somebody elses taste) but its true, I don’t think she took a spin class ever on her life! She didn’t even adjust the bike… so she was low riding. Then her class consisted of her pretending to ride in a neighborhood on a mountain. Visualizing the houses and the sites… Yeeeeah. I could only take 10 mins and I hopped got the hell out. Pretty much everyone else in the class did as well. It’s annoying me now thinking about it. I would have gladly taught! I then ran 3.4 ish miles of fartleks on the treadmill in 30 mins. It was kind of rough and I wanted to do more but I just wasn’t feeling well. Bad workout week. I have those every now and again :(. I also had a volleyball game later in which I was kind of awkward, but we won overall.

Dinner was yesterday’s leftovers with some additions.


-mango chicken sausage
-roasted portobella and asparagus
-garlic toast (slice carb style bread, garlic powder, spray butter)
-jalapeño mustard
-buttery pretzel snaps

The additions:


Handful of raisels to get the spicy mustard to stop burning my tongue. It’s so hot! And so delicious!
