A Rushed Post

We’re just finishing getting ready to leave for Staten Island.  But I just wanted to post before we left because I have a feeling it’s going to be another late night.

Before we went to the gym I had a Gensoy bar.

It was “Southern Style Chunky Peanut Butter Fudge”  It was my first time trying one of these bars and it was really good, I’ll definitely buy them again.  It did a great job of fueling me for my workout with 14 grams of protein. 

I had a really great work out on the gym the 30 minutes on the treadmill quickly passed and I did most of the things I did with my trainer as well as some of the machines.  It was one of those workouts where everything goes well and you feel awesome when you’re done.

Dinner was the last of the eggplant.  I’m sad to see it go, but I’ll be making it again soon since it worked out so well and I got 4 meals out of it.

I had 4 pieces of eggplant with an ounce of part skim mozz cheese.  I also used an Arnold Sandwich Thin to make "garlic bread”.

On the side I also had 5 ounces of this soup.

I think I overestimated my hunger because I didn’t eat more then 1/2 of this soup.  It was really good though and I still have a lot left to eat later.  I liked how it wasn’t a canned soup so it didn’t have that weird tin taste.

After dinner I had a dark chocolate truffle.  It was heavenly.

We’re off to Staten Island now, hope you all have a great night!

Friday Night Slacker

Happy Saturday!  Hope you are all enjoying your weekend so far.  After getting home from work last night I had to eat dinner quickly because we were going to go visit one of Andrew’s friends from college with a couple of our other friends.  We wound up not getting home until after midnight and I was fast asleep within 10 minutes of getting home.

Let’s get into yesterday’s eats.

Breakfast was a peach Chobani with granola and cranberries.

Once again this did a great job of holding me over until lunch.

Lunch yesterday was a toasted Thomas WW bagel with pb.  I’ve worked at this office for almost 3 years now and never once used the toaster, this is definitely something I’ll be using more often now.

I also had a side of grapes.

Around 4 I got hungry so I snacked on an Archer Farms Orange Citrus Fruit Bar.

This was really good!  It tasted really excellent, I have the Tropical flavor as well and it’s just as good.  I bought them when they were on clearance one day and it’s definitely something I’ll be buying again.

Once I got home I made Eggplant Stuffed Green Peppers.

I mixed up the rest of the brown rice, a 1/2 a tbsp of ricotta, 2 pieces of eggplant diced, tomato basil sauce, the top of the green pepper diced.  I put this mixture inside the green pepper and then baked in the oven at 400 degrees for about 15 minutes, I then put 1/2 an ounce of part skim mozz on top.

It was a delicious combination!  I love stuffed peppers, and if I had more time I would have added even more veggies to it.

A close up of the inside.  I can’t wait to continue stuffing peppers in new ways, it’s such an easy meal and it can be really healthy.  Typically I would put ground beef in but I didn’t miss it at all with the eggplant in there.

While we were out last night we went to a microbrewery.  I ordered some sweet potato fries but they were super greasy and obviously deep fried I ate a few and then put them aside.  I also had a bite of Andrew’s burger and a waffle fry of his.  It was a lot of fun but I’m glad we ate before we went because I was not happy with many of the food choices.

I woke up this morning and had another WW bagel toasted but with Light Butter on it.

Yum.  After breakfast I took a nice long bubble bath.  I can’t believe how sore I am today.  Much more sore then yesterday.  Although after my bath I’m feeling really relaxed and less sore.  I’m getting ready to the head to the gym and then come back here for some cleaning.

Tonight we’re going to a friends birthday party up in Staten Island NY.  Should be a good time.  I’ll be posting before then. 

Enjoy the rest of your Saturday, see you later!
