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.

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.

Sunflower butter

March 15, 2011

Its weird waking up when it’s dark all of a sudden again. I know it’s only for a bit but I liked the sun in the morning.

My parents bought me a ton of fruit when they came last night so there will be a lot eaten in the next few days. Similar to this double serving at breakfast.

Strawberry Pecan Oats


-1/8 c steel cut
-1/2 multigrain
-1/2 banana
-splenda
-tbsp pecan pieces
-on top 5 strawberries cut up

This was a good mix of flavors. The pecans added a sweet crunch and went well with the strawberries. The banana males the oats creamy.


Missed my snack because I was in a meeting.

Lunch lean pocket pretzel bread chicken jalapeño cheddar.


This was just as delicious the 2nd time. Love.


With a side of 20 butter snap pretzels and the other half of my morning banana. All dipped in hot sauce. Yes, even the banana. It’s good. Try it.


Afternoon snack was some amazing pineapple and strawberries from my parents.

Fitness: I have volleyball today (so i cant teach my class) and a bachelorette party Saturday (difficult to fit in a long run) so I am mixing up my workout schedule this week. Today I ran my long run which was 5 miles. Mile Stats:
1- 9:27
2- 9:11
3- 9:26
4- 9:11
5- 8:59
Last .21- 9:39
Total: 5.21 48:12

Not great but not terrible. I am starting to see I will just be proud of myself for fishing the half instead of shooting for a time goal. It is my first one, I should try and enjoy it. Just a random thought.

After the run I had about a half hour to shower and get ready but i was oddly starving so i ate dinner instead.


-1/2 c grapenuts
-1/4 c blueberry muesli
-skim milk


I was still hungry after that so i thought i would try my newest purchase:


I made it into a fluffernuter.


-Slice of whole grain white bread
-tbsp sunflower butter
-tbsp fluff


Sunflower butter is delicious! The taste of sunflower seeds is subtle and it’s very creamy. I really like it as a pb stand in. I almost feel like I am cheating by eating it during Lent when I gave up pb… Almost.

More fitness: After, I walked with my friend Mike to the game. Some stats for that haha: 15 mins .76 miles. We won the game and walked back. So logged an extra mile and a half.
