Fruit-filled day

March 16, 2011

For some reason my legs are super sore after my rub yesterday. I kept waking up in the middle of the night thinking how sore I am. Weird. I don’t think I stretched enough or something. I always stretch well in my classes so will make sure to spend some extra time on that tonight.

My breakfast was chosen for 2 reasons. I have a ton of fruit as I mentioned yesterday and my legs needed some protein to recover.


-2 scrambles eggs from the cafe downstairs
-pear
-orange
-gold peak diet iced tea (bought downstairs on a whim)


This was just what I needed. I am really enjoying the array of fruit I have this week. I need to remember that in the future instead of just buying a bad of one type for the week.


Morning snack was more fruit, a banana still nursing my tea from breakfast.


And a few cocoa roast almonds.


Lunch was Campbell’s savory chicken and long grain rice soup. I added lots of hot sauce.


And had the last of my butter snaps on the side.


My afternoon snack was the same as yesterday and stuck with the fruit theme: strawberries and pineapple. Mmm.


Vita top Pre gym playing words with friend (B Suzie…challenge me!)


Fitness: Did 100 pushup challenge w4 d1 during a work break and completed it for the first time!! Indie 121 pushups total (with breaks). Moving on up! After work I taught my kickboxing class. My legs were still pretty tired and with the thought of 7 more miles left to do this week I didn’t push myself quite as hard as usual. Not sure my legs would have had it anyway. Hopefully they get it together for tomorrow.

Dinner was leftovers from Monday with a twist.


-seared tuna (reheated with jalapeño mustard)
-a few stalks asparagus
-olives
-spinach
-couple tbsp part skim mozz
-little more then a tbsp ff thousand island dressing
-small side of rf kettle chips chips for crunch and a little extra fat (not the good kind but still filling)


This was awesome! The jalapeño mustard was really what that tuna needed. I was skeptical about this salad because I didn’t have much on hand to throw into it but I guess sometimes simple works.


I decided the other day I need to add a little more fat (the healthy kind mostly) into my diet during the week. It definitely keeps me from getting hungry. Yesterday was a good example. I ate really low fat all day and was star ing at 6:30 and wanted to binge. Anyway I’ll try and add some fat here and there with part skim cheese instead of nonfat, olives or avocados or things with omega 3s, nuts, etc. I guess we’ll see if can stick with it without adding too many calories.

I had planned to have a cadbury cream egg for dessert but I actually wasn’t hungry for it. My serving of chips felt like my splurge for the night and I was satisfied.

I am currently watching the new (last week) episode of Sister Wives. I have a strange obsession with this show. Its just so strange to me I have to watch. Anyway back to Cody and fam.


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!
