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!

Pretzel Pocket

March 8, 2011

Today I was not liking the diet-to-go breakfast. A bran muffin and greek yogurt for 390 calories. First that is too much for breakfast. I stop at about 350 unless it’s something special. The muffin was tiny and 250 calories. I ditched the muffin and filled the yogurt with about a cup of Puffins pb cereal and a few strawberries.


This was a good combo but I wish it ha been plain yogurt. I do not like honey (not sure why just don’t enjoy that taste) and this was honey on the bottom. Anyway I slimmed this down to about a 300 calorie meal that was a lot bigger then the original.


For a snack at 11am I had a banana.


Lunch was back to diet-to-go (i have 3 more meals of this) Barbecue Chicken & Sauce with Anise Roasted Potatoes, Baked Beans, Green Beans & Almonds


i chose this one today because I know my dinner will be lacking veggies and this one had the most. It was only 380 calories. Good size for this tasty lunch. The chicken was good…


But I liked all the sides that came with this. Baked beans.


Green beans and almonds.


Potatoes. Surprisingly not a huge fan of these because they were made with anise. I don’t care for black licorice flavor. It was just a hint bit I could taste it. I doused it in BBQ sauce to salvage.


Afternoon snack was half a flat of strawberries. I got these 2 for $5 at acme.


And some mixed nuts.


Fiber one high fiber chewy bar before the gym.


Fitness: same old Tuesday routine. I missed pilates last week so glad to be back. At work I again struggled though W4D1 of 100 pushups. I’m stuck on this one doing a total of 109 pushups on about 10 mins.

I’ve decided that Tuesday dinners need to be fast. I don’t get home until after 8pm, I’m starving, and I only have an hour before I like to be blogging in my bed. Soooo that brings me to dinner. Ever since i heard of their existence (not sure how), I have been dying to try pretzel bread lean pockets. I found them at Costco and hopefully I like them because it’s a large box. Drum roll…

Grilled Chicken Jalapeño Cheddar Pretzel Bread Lean Pocket with sides of rf kettle chips and butter snaps dipped in my last tbsp of hummus.


The lean pocket was great. It smelled like a fresh pretzel baking… Amazing and I was surprised that the jalapeño cheddar actually had a little kick (I still added hot sauce.


I am glad I bought the big box of these, I will enjoy them.

Dessert was a godiva chocolate.


Now I am watching Nova embarrass themselves in the Big East Tournament. Which leads me to question who will I be supporting this march madness? Nova is going to go out mortifyingly early.. I think Notre Dame maybe my team after at. Gott keep it in the Big East. Nova, why?!
