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!

Promotion

April 6, 2011

Good news! I got a promotion at work today. I am now officially Marketing Specialist. I don’t generally talk about work on this blog as a rule or even reveal where I work so I’ll leave it at that. No worries, you will still be seeing many snacking in the cubicle shots.

On that note, breakfast in the cube (as it is every morning) was cereal and milk I packed from home. I don’t do this often because I have to carry an extra container with milk (why don’t I have milk for the office.. Yeah, I don’t know. Too much work).


-last of my grape nuts, little less then a cup
-handful of blueberry muesli
-half a banana
-skim milk (I don’t measure, just like to drown my cereal in it)

I need more grapenuts. I love them. So filling an versatile. A great addition for cereal mixes.

Morning snack was the other half of the morning banana and some mixed nuts. This time I added cocoa almonds to the mix.


For lunch our department decided to go out and we went to a local place called Wild Rice. The menu was full of all kinds Asian dishes like rice bowls, dim sum, pho, and sushi. There was a lot to choose from!

I went with the Chirashi which was basically a bunch of sashimi with a little side of rice.


It also came with miso soup and a salad.


I ate almost everything and it was delicious. Also very good portion sizes. I say almost because the Ginger salad was covered in Ginger dressing so I skipped a lot of that. The rest was great.

Afternoon snack was an appale.  I also had a few cocoa almonds on the side for filling fat.


Vita top in my uggs that I wore into work this morning (I later changed into heels, no worries) Yes, it is still freezing here. In april.


Fitness: normal wed routine refer to the my workouts tab.

Dinner was a la Jae tonight. He is moving soon which makes me sad to think about :( and will probably make the blog less interesting haha. He made homemade mashed potatoes, shake and bake pork, rolls, and stir fry veggies.


-the mashed potatoes were made with a little margarine and low fat milk


-the pork was first coated with stone ground mustard and then dipped in shake and bake and baked (soooo good!)


-he had 2 veggie choices (sampled both of those)


-had half a roll. Mmmmm so flakey.


Diet-to-go abandoned

March 4, 2011

I found another reason this morning that diet-to-go is not for me. I like to eat what I feel like eating. I froze 2 of the meals for when I feel like eating them later. And went back to pb for breakfast.


-last 2 slices carb style bread
-tbsp RF pb
-tbsp fluff
-tbsp sf jelly

I missed you.

For my morning snack I stole these clementines from my roommate. Thanks, Lauren! I had 3 since they are small.


Lunch I went back to diet-to-go because that’s what I had on hand at work. This was supposed to be Thursday’s but I thought it was a little too many calories for yesterday. Friday I generally eat a little more so I had the 470 calorie lunch which got downsized and then had some additions.

Hummus, Pocket bread, carrot and cranberry salad (added terra chips)


The hummus and pocket bread were good but overly bready and small. I didn’t finish the hummus it was a huge serving for the small bread.


I did not like the cranberry salad. Can’t really explain it, not for me.


I added the terra chips from the lunch the other day to beef up my meal.


Overall not impressed with this meal. Leftovers:


My afternoon snack was a box of Raisels I had in my work stash.


Pregym vita top and Brian being scary. Haha.


Fitness: it was on my schedule to run 2 miles today but I had said I would sub the 5:45 kick boxing class at the gym tonight. I managed to get there, run 2 miles on the treadmill in 26:33 minutes (!) and get to the kickboxing class on time! I did the run fartlek style so the quick pace i was trying to bang out would seem less daunting it worked Amazingly I wasn’t super exhausted afterward.

Lauren came to my class and we decided to order dinner afterward. I was craving the tuna sashimi I has the other day from Shan Chuan. Tekka Don and this time I knew to add green.


-tuna sashimi with wasabi
-brown rice
-mixed steam veggies
-dipping sauce (may have been general Tso)
-beer


This was epic as Charlie Sheen would say. Winning!

After I picked up Dan we stopped for dessert. Hot fudge sundae. They forgot the juts so I added chopped pecans I happened to have at home. Mmmmm.
