Reappearing Act

Sorry about my disappearance this weekend.  I had a lot of things going on and didn’t have the time to blog at night.  I also ate a few meals with Andrew’s family and I still haven’t told them about the blog so I felt awkward pulling out my camera.  I’m sure you all understand.  I was going to do a recap of the weekend eats minus those meals but decided to just start fresh today.

This morning I once again had a clif bar.

Picture 038

This is definitely one of my favorite flavors.

For lunch today my camera went dead, so I’m recycling a picture.  I had a veggie veggie sub from Subway.

Picture 004

It looked pretty much the same, and was as delicious as always.

Today work flew by I was so excited when I saw it was already time to leave.  I was so sure this week would go by so slowly but if today is any indication of how the rest of the week is going to go then I’m in luck.   After work I had some errands to run and then came home to a dinner of leftovers.

Last night Andrew and I made taco meat and I had a taco salad, I had some meat left over and decided to have a taco pizza.  I used a piece of WW naan, used salsa for the sauce, then a layer of the meat, then some 2% mexican cheese blend.  I put it in the oven for about 12 minutes.  Once it was out I shredded some lettuce on top.

Picture 001

Picture 003

This was so delicious and a fun way to use up things in the fridge. 

I have a lot of things I need to do before my vacation starts so I’m going to go but I’ll be back tomorrow.

Bear with me this week since I’m mostly going to be cleaning out the fridge the eats might be a little weird and all over the place.  I hope you all have a fantastic night!

Cheese From a What?!

Sorry I didn’t post last night there’s so much going on here and not enough time in the day.  I have a very busy weekend and I’m not sure I’ll be able to read and comment blogs but by Friday afternoon I should be home free and able to catch up! 

For breakfast yesterday I totally switched it up and some cereal, blackberries, and non-greek yogurt (gasp).  I decided to splurge on other things at whole foods the other day and didn’t grab any.  I bought a big container of Stoneyfield Vanilla yogurt, it’s okay but it’s not thick and creamy like I’m used to!

Picture 002

This cereal mix is 365 brand high fiber cereal and Kashi Island Vanilla.  How have I never gotten this before?  It’s so delicious!

If you haven’t noticed the trend this week I didn’t make lunches ahead and was forced to leave and pick up something for lunch.  Yesterday I went for a cheap meal from Quick Check, I got a whole wheat wrap with roast beef, fresh mozzarella, cucs, red onions, lettuce, and vinegar.

Picture 004

Decent.

Once I came back from work I was accosted by co-workers to try a snack that one of them had brought back from his trip home to Mongolia.  This man has brought in things to our pot lucks like yak cheese, and horse milk.  My first question was if it was yak cheese, he answered it wasn’t and then handed me a piece of this.

Picture 010 

Any guesses?  He broke me off a much smaller piece for me to try.  I put it in my mouth and instantly I was hit with this tangy sour taste.  It was definitely cheese but I couldn’t figure out how cheese could be crunchy like a meringue.  The flavor was pretty awful but bearable.  After I said it tasted like a bad piece of cheese cake that had been left out in the sun, they told me what I had just consumed.

CAMEL CHEESE!

OH MY GOD!  I didn’t know what to think, I promptly returned the rest of this chunk and then drank a whole bottle of water.  After about an hour I started to feel a little nauseous so I decided to eat something that I know would taste wonderful and hopefully settle the feeling in my tummy! 

Picture 009

It worked until other co-workers started trying it, and I started to feel ill again.  So did my boss so we took a lot of unscheduled breaks to go outside and get some fresh air.

Dinner last night was a taco made out of 3 meatless meatballs.

Picture 012

This was fantastic as usual.

After dinner I went to go see Jessica’s,  one of my best friend’s, new apartment!  She is moving into an apartment about a 5 minute walk from us!  Just like Andrew and I, she’s living on the 3rd floor of an old Victorian house.  It’s adorable and I couldn’t wait to see it!  So we spent the evening hanging out there helping her clean.  After we got home it was time for us to clean because my aunt might be stopping by tonight. 

On the Agenda for the weekend.

Friday

  • bank
  • mall with mom
  • lunch with mom and her friend
  • helping Jessica move in
  • visiting with my aunt from Virginia
  • shopping for vacation clothes!

Saturday

  • Driving up to upstate NY for my cousin’s communion and communion party, which is an all day affair.

Sunday

  • Setting up my cousin’s bridal shower
  • Then the shower itself, I’m dreading it, I don’t get along with the bride’s mom, my aunt, and her other daughter and my cousin, we haven’t spoken to each other in over 3 years.  They both still owe me an apology for something my cousin did to me and they refuse to see that she is wrong.  The details are so old and boring I won’t get into it, but I’m hoping Sunday is drama free.
    Hope you all have a fantastic Friday!  Hopefully I’ll be popping in from time to time!

Carnivore

Sorry I didn’t post for Easter, but I hope that if you celebrate it you had a fabulous day!  I had a lot of family fun with both my family and Andrew’s.

Easter morning we woke up and it was sunny so we decided to take a walk on the trail.  It looked so warm out but unfortunately it was freezing, we only wound up walking for about 30 minutes because the wind was so strong and I was an icicle . My right inner ear was so irritated by the cold and wind we turned back and left. Common sense would have told me that if it was a little windy at our apartment chances are walking along the water would be super cold.  Lesson learned.  As much as I want it to be summer it’s not yet and I still have to dress for the weather. 

Once returning I laid on the couch whining about my ear while Andrew cooked up some Easter breakfast.  We had turkey bacon (meat!!!) and scrambled egg bagel sandwiches!

Picture 001

3 slices of turkey bacon and 2 scrambled eggs on a whole wheat bagel.  So delicious.

After not eating meat for 47 days it felt really weird eating the bacon, and actually to be honest I felt a little queasy afterwards but there was plenty more meat to follow during the day.

We first went to my parents house where I got my Easter basket.  The Easter bunny (mom) waited until the last minute so there were no Easter candies, just regular reese’s pb cups (my favorite candy), Mounds, kit kats, and the newest Danielle Steel novel.  Does anyone else read her books?  I’ve read them all, my dad insists my mom named me after her, my mom denies it.  I kind of side with my dad on that one. 

After hanging out with my family for a couple hours we went to Andrew’s grandma’s house.  I had a small slice of lasagna while we were there.  It was yummy but there’s no picture.  I’m sure you all know what lasagna looks like though.

Around 5 we headed back to my parents house for dinner.  Usually my parents make lamb, the smell of it cooking makes me gag.  Since I’d been meatless for all of lent my dad suggested we get Prime Rib.  I definitely liked that idea since we only have it once a year on Christmas and I love it.   So we had Prime Rib (super rare for me), asparagus, and mashed potatoes.  I ate about 1/2 of that piece of prime meat that you see, all the mashed potatoes (plus another spoonful) and of course all the asparagus.

Picture 006

After dinner we watched The Tale of Despereaux that my sister got in her Easter basket. It was a pretty cute movie.

And I had a small piece of Cheesecake for dessert.  My favorite dessert by far.

Picture 007

It looks like a pretty big slice but that’s a dessert plate if that puts it into perspective for you.

We eventually made it back to our apartment where I fell into a food coma and passed out.

I woke up this morning starving and pretty much the second I got to work I smeared some pb on a honey whole wheat bagel. 

Picture 010 

Hit the spot!

For lunch I had a Chicken fajita wrap from Green Leafs.  It was delicious!

Picture 012

There was no description of it so I asked the woman behind the counter what was on it, she told me grilled chicken, grilled peppers and onions, and some sour cream based dressing.  I loathe sour cream so I got it without that, but she failed to mention there was a ton of jalepenos, and some kind of cheese.  Regardless it was really good.  I ate 1/2 and left the other 1/2 at work and plan on having that tomorrow for lunch.

For a snack at work I had 2 Mounds candies.

Picture 013

Mmm is there anything better then dark chocolate and coconut?

Once I got home Andrew and I decided to go for a walk, we went to the trail and walked for 1 hour 17 minutes and burned 574 calories.  Not too bad, it was a beautiful night for a walk.

I’m giving in to all my meat cravings now that I can have it and we decided to have tacos.

Picture 015

Lettuce, peppers, extra lean meat, and onions. It looks like a lot of meat but it was about 3 ounces, there’s a ton more lettuce underneath as well.

So obviously I have began eating meat again.  Although I really had an easier time then I thought for Lent, I definitely don’t see me being a complete vegetarian anytime soon.  I definitely enjoyed the experience and loved a lot of the “meatless” products that I will still continue to enjoy.   And although I’m going a little crazy with meat, and expect to for the rest of the week since I’m so excited to be eating it, and I’m eating everything I missed during Lent I’m sure it will taper back to down to just once or twice a week as it was before Lent. 

To be completely honest I didn’t think I’d be able to do it, I was sure I’d cave in and eat chicken or taste something of Andrew’s at least once.  I’m proud to say I had not tasted meat since February 24th.  Sometimes it was hard but for the most part it wasn’t too bad.   Thanks for all your support during Lent and always!

Time to go watch The Mets!  Anyone else here a Mets fan!?

Where Did the Sun Go?

Today I woke up to a beautiful sunny day, then I walked outside and “brrr” it was cold, and unfortunately the sun didn’t stick around long and by 9 it was look more like winter then like the sunny spring days we’ve been having.  I’m thisclose to packing up my things and heading south.

At work today I realized that I have training for the next 4 work days, meaning with Friday off the next time I’ll be sitting at my desk will be Wednesday.  Today was crazy busy trying to get everything done so that I won’t be bothered during training.  I’m so looking forward to my first Friday off.   I have moved past the point of panic and have decided to just relax and enjoy the long weekends.  Obviously if I need the money I’ll pick something up but I have a feeling I’ll be okay for a while. 

I still have a lot of blog reading and commenting to do so let’s get into today’s eats.

For breakfast this morning I had overnight oats.  I was going to attempt to eat it cold as I’ve seen some bloggers do.  Totally not my cup of tea, the picture is from before I heated it up but after a couple bites I marched my behind to the microwave and nuked it.

Picture 001

It doesn’t even look good does it?

For lunch today I revisited a meal I really enjoyed a few weeks ago, a pb and apple sandwich.

Picture 002

Picture 003

I can’t believe it took me 24 years to try this sandwich but it’s definitely one of my favorites.

While hurrying to get my work done I snacked on some grapes around 3:30.

Picture 004

They are totally on their last leg.

After work I came home and did all the dishes in the sink while contemplating what I wanted for dinner.  I had no clue what-so-ever, I think mentally I’m so ready to be eating meat again that nothing sounds good unless it’s got chicken in it.  I still hadn’t figured it out a while later but decided to have some tacos using MorningStar veggie crumbles.

Picture 005

While heating up the crumbles I also added from frozen corn kernels and then mixed in the taco seasoning.  I had it on a ww wrap with less then an ounce of cheese, and some romaine lettuce.  I loved the crunch the corn added to the taco.  I plan on adding corn more often.

Well like I said I still have some catching up to do with my Google reader, so I will “see” you all tomorrow evening.

The weekend is in sight…

I can’t believe today is already almost over, this week is flying by!  And the fact that a week from now it’ll be April is nuts!  2009 sure is moving quickly!  Anyone else think this year is going fast?

For breakfast today my old love is back.  Chobani!  Oh how I’ve missed my Chobani, especially my vanilla.  I had that with a peak protein granola sprinkled on top.

Picture 002

Picture 003 

This is a heavenly combination!

Lunch today was a pb and banana sandwich with some green grapes on the side.

Picture 006

Picture 009

Some of my grapes were very tart, I didn’t enjoy those few, but the rest were perfectly sweet!

Around 3 I was ready to gnaw my arm off, I didn’t think I had any snacks with me because I really haven’t been snacking in the afternoons.  I was about to hit up the vending machine when I remembered that I did, in fact, have a snack courtesy of Missy.  She sweetly handed out some clif z bars on Sunday at the brunch, and I luckily still had it in my bag.  So thank you so much Missy for keeping me away from the vending machine! 

Picture 011

Once I got home from work I was once again hungry, I don’t know what is with my appetite today.  I knew exactly what I wanted I was inspired by this meal.  I had some meatless meatballs and was craving tacos so I made a taco wrap.  I used 4 meatless meatballs broken up and cooked in taco seasoning, romaine lettuce, spinach, mexican cheese blend, and salsa, on whole wheat tortilla.

Picture 015

Picture 021

This was so good! 

After resting and watching some of last night’s Biggest Loser it was time to go to the gym.  I did strength training first and then jumped on the treadmill, I didn’t feel like running today so I walked at a steep incline for a while.  According to my HRM my stats are:

  • 450 calories burned
  • Avg HR 153
  • Max HR 181

Have I said how much I love this HRM already?  One thing I did notice on the treadmill is since they’ve got Polar HRM built in my stats show up on not only my treadmill but the one next to me.  I don’t know if that’s normal or not.

Once returning back home I snacked on 2 Tagalongs.

Picture 024

Last year when I got my 2 boxes of Tagalongs they were gone in about a week, I’ve had these for a week now and this is my second helping of them.  Just goes to show me how much I’ve improved since the beginning of the year.

Well lovelies I’m off to bed, I hope you all have a great night!

Drained

Thanks for being so understanding about last night’s crappy post.  I don’t know what’s wrong with me lately, I just feel physically drained, I’d love to blame it on Daylight Savings Time but I’m getting the same amount of sleep most nights, the other night I had a restless night but surely I must have made that up by now.  I just feel like from the moment I get up to the moment I lay down I’m constantly going.  This Saturday I will make the time to go to the gym at some point but other then that I am having a me day, I have some of ideas of what it will include, but suggestions are welcome.  When you want to treat yourself what’s your favorite thing to do?

I’m going to make this post quick as well so I can get into bed and get another full nights sleep.

For breakfast today I had a 2% Plain Fage yogurt with peak protein granola.

Picture 012

I’ve loved all the Fage yogurt I’ve received but for plain I definitely prefer the 0%. Flavored 2%’s are fine but I really like the 0% better.

A little before lunch I got hungry so I snacked on what was supposed to be a part of lunch.  Some grapes that were on their way out, I had toss quite a few of them.

Picture 014

For lunch I had a pb and raspberry preserve sandwich on an Arnold Thin.

Picture 017

Looks like my sandwich is sticking his tongue out at me.

Around 3:30 I got hungry again, and I wanted popcorn, so I took a single serving size 100 calorie bag to one of the microwaves, within in a minute it smelled like burning so I took it out, more then half of those little kernels didn’t pop, and about 1/2 of the ones that did pop were burnt, disappointing to say the least.

Picture 019

Such was my day.

For dinner I made tacos with the MorningStar Veggie crumbles, the texture took some getting used to but it was really good, I put the taco “meat” over a bed of romaine, 4 mini sweet peppers, taco cheese, and some onion, for dressing I used taco sauce.  

Picture 021

A little while after dinner we got ready to go to the gym but stopped by my parents house to see their new couch, very nice and comfortable, I see many naps on that couch in my future.  As we were leaving Andrew found some soft pretzel he had left from school, I gladly took a piece from him.

Picture 027

The gym sucked, I just don’t have the energy, I did as much as I could on the treadmill, and then accidentally punched it, I pushed the emergency stop button, and waited for the pain to go away, then restarted it, then I realized how crappy I felt and how I did not want to be there, and instead of pushing through I freaking gave up.  I feel like I’m getting upset ofverstupid stuff lately and I need to calm the heck down.  I should have stuck it out, but I got too upset over something stupid and decided to leave.  Tomorrow WILL be a better day at the gym.

So after we came home I decided to crack open a container of fro yo that’s been in my freezer for over a month, just haven’t been in the mood for it lately.  But tonight the craving was there and I gave into it.  I had a serving of the frozen yogurt and some chocolate chips on top.  Heavenly.

Picture 032

Well I’m off to read and go to bed, I’m reading A Thousand Years Of Solitude and so far it’s pretty good.  Hope you all have a really good night!!!  See you tomorrow, and by then it will be Thursday!  We’re almost there!!!!

A New Spin On Leftovers

Whew Monday is over!  Today was a pretty good day, I’m feeling much better today.  I would say I’m 90% back to good health.  My work day flew right before, before I knew it the day was over and it was time to go home.  Tomorrow is not going to be a fun day I’m starting a new project and I pretty much have 2 days to get it all done.  Should make tomorrow go by quickly as well, but it is going to be so hectic!  Hope you all had a fabulous Monday!

Chobani was on sale at Stop and Shop 10 for 10 so of course I stocked up.  I feel like it’s been a while so I grabbed a peach one for breakfast today.  I also restocked my Bear Naked Peak Protein Granola so I was able to have a protein filled breakfast.

Picture 004

You can see my desk was a complete disaster today with all the papers surrounding my breakfast.  My desk is usually super neat but I let all the papers pile up around me today.  Hopefully after this quick project is over my desk will be back to my normal organized work space.

Lunch today I had a serving of Pacific Natural Foods Organic Creamy Tomato soup.  I enjoyed it a lot, but I’ve never been a big fan of tomato soup, I would get this again just for ease, but it’s hardly something I would crave.

Picture 007

On the side I had 15 kashi crackers, but only ate 10 of them.  I put the other 5 back in the box for another day.

Picture 006

After this lunch I was satisfied for a long time but around 3 I got hungry again.  I snacked on 3/4 of a banana with pb sandwiched in the middle.

Picture 010

I love this snack it is so filling and it does an awesome job of fueling a workout or keeping me from snacking all afternoon at work.  It gets the job done for serious. Yes, I just said for serious, it’s something I’ve been made fun of since high school, it’s something I say though I know it’s not good English though.

For dinner tonight I was craving the rest of my taco meat from yesterday.  But for the sake of the blog, I knew tacos again would be so boring so I re-created tacos with a new twist.  Taco Pizza was born!

It was a whole wheat boboli crust, 2.5 ounces of taco meat, 2 tablespoons of salsa, 2 sweet mini peppers diced,  and a little more then an ounce of a low fat mexican blend cheese.  I haven’t used VeggieGirl’s “Holy Yum” on this blog yet, but for real guys, HOLY YUM!

 picture-0121

Dare I say this was better then regular tacos.  After I finished eating I thought of one thing that would have made it better.  Shredded lettuce on top once it was out of the oven.  Seriously that would have been out of this world!  Please if you find yourself with taco leftovers, make this pizza, you will NOT regret it!

After dinner I was contemplating going to the gym.  I know I’m probably not going to be able to go tomorrow because I have a doctors appointment and then a dinner date with my friend Michelle.  But it’s cold out there!  So instead I looked on demand and found a yoga sculpt program.  I’ve never really done yoga, I mean sure on the Wii Fit, which totally doesn’t count.  After I set it up and the show started I found out it was level intermediate to advanced.  I didn’t feel like looking for a new one so I did the best I could, I can’t believe how much work it was!  Yoga is something I will totally do again.

 

P.S. Head on over to Hangry Pants where Heather and Mark are giving away a box of Zoe’s Granola!

Weekend Recap

I am a bad weekend blogger.  Wish I could say it was because I was so busy with friends and having fun.  Unfortunately I didn’t do much this weekend, Friday night I crashed early and yesterday I was feeling really sick so I skipped a friends birthday dinner and night out for some time in bed.  Not a productive weekend but definitely needed.  I’m hoping that with all my rest I should feel great this week, I’m also hoping this week flies by as quickly as last week did.    It’s sad the weekend’s over but I’m ready to get this last week of February over and done with.  I can’t believe it’s almost March!  Springtime is just around the corner.  And March is my favorite month, I might be a little biased because my birthday is in March. 

So clearly I have a lot to cover since I have not written anything since Thursday.  So let’s get onto the eats.

Friday for breakfast I had a bowl of oats, I decided to finish off my canister used the 3/4 heart healthy portion.  That was really good but super filling.

Picture 002

With cranberries and PB.  So delicious!

This was seriously stick to your ribs good.  3/4 of a cup is great, but it definitely kept me full for hours.  By lunch I was barely even hungry so I just snacked on a cut up gala apple, 2 clementines, some blueberries, kashi crackers, and about 1 tablespoon of pb.

 Picture 009

I didn’t eat that z bar until about 3:30.

For dinner that night we made a stir-fry of sorts.  I used black beans, green peppers, onions, baby corn, and salsa.  It was a really yummy combo.

Picture 022

After this we headed to the gym, it felt soooooooo good to be back.  I definitely didn’t have my best workout but it was really good.  I was just happy to be back to working out.

I woke up Saturday morning and had some puffins for breakfast.

Picture 025

I ate about 3/4 of this before I was full.  After breakfast I hit up Costco with my dad, I didn’t buy much just some socks, bananas, a new scale, and some seasonings. 

For lunch later on I was craving some of that Panera LF chicken tortilla soup, so I ran out and bought some and ate it at my parents while I waited for Andrew to be done with work for the day.

I got the soup:

Picture 030

And their Classic Garden Salad:

Picture 034

I also ate a piece of the whole wheat baguette, but somehow I didn’t get a picture of it.

After Andrew got out of work we headed to the gym.  I felt like complete crap, I got horribly out of breath barely doing anything and my head was pounding we only wound up staying about 45 minutes before I finally couldn’t take it anymore.  We left and came home.  We had a birthday for a friend to go to, we were supposed to go out to dinner and then out to a bar, but I knew I just needed to stay home.  I made myself a comforting dinner, while Andrew headed out for the birthday festivities.

I had 2.5 ounces of whole wheat Angel Hair pasta, with 1/4 cup of spaghetti sauce.

Picture 035

I ate this and then moped around the house, frustrated that I was missing out, especially because a friend I rarely see was there.  I took a hot shower, took some medicine and laid down, after about 45 minutes I felt super sick and nauseous.  Unfortunately that spaghetti dinner didn’t stay down very long after that, sorry I know that’s TMI.

I fell fast asleep by 9:15 and only briefly woke up when Andrew got home later that night, other then that I slept right up until this morning.  I felt much better but didn’t have any appetite until close to 12.  I decided to have scrambled eggs with green pepper and 3 turkey sausages. 

Picture 043

Because we ate so late in the day I didn’t wind up eating any lunch.  We went to the gym and the girl I was sad I didn’t get to see last night was actually there, after she gave me some grief for not going out last night we worked out together.  She works at the gym as a trainer (not mine though) so I did 20 minutes on the bike while I waited for her to finish up, then she showed me some new arm exercises to do.  She worked me out hard we were both dripping sweat by the end.  Then we did a quick 15 minutes on the elliptical.  I was so surprised by how much I did the elliptical, I’m not a fan of it, but I might have fallen in love with it today.  I was drenched in sweat when we left.

After the gym we ran to the food store to pick up a few items for the week, sorry I didn’t take any pictures of our purchases.  We made tacos tonight with lean ground beef.

I had 2 tacos on a whole wheat toritilla with lettuce, green peppers, salsa, and mexican blend cheese.

Picture 051

Well I’m off to finish my taxes.  Keep your fingers crossed for a big return!

Feel The Burn

Before I talk about my first session with a personal trainer lets go over the eats.

For breakfast I switched things up a little and had a Peach Chobani, with a honey crisp apple on the side.

Picture 001

 picture-0023

I wasn’t really that hungry so this did a great job of keeping me satisfied until lunch time rolled around.

For lunch I had some of the leftover chicken tacos but in a salad, it contained, romaine, spinach, onions, chicken, and salsa for a dressing.  This was so good!

Picture 004

Picture 003 Picture 005

That little container is from duck sauce or something one night from a while ago while eating at my parents house.  I’ve saved them and I use them for dressings, pb, and mustard for dipping.  Keeps the salad from getting soggy.

With my lunch I also had some grapes.

Picture 006

For a mid-afternoon snack I had Kashi crackers and another orange.

Picture 009

Before I went to the gym I had a Carrot Cake Clif Bar.

picture-0125

So I met with my trainer and he certainly kicked my butt.  He had me doing so much that I never though I’d be able to do.  A couple minutes before the end of my session I started to get dizzy, too much for my body for the first day.  He took me outside to get some fresh air, and that certainly calmed me down.  I felt stupid until he told me that he really pushed me and I didn’t give up on any of the exercises, I did them all really well and he was impressed he never had to correct me or urge me to keep going.  So that made me feel better.  I found out I only had one more exercise to do with him though, and I wished I had pushed through but I didn’t realize how late into the session it was.  I scheduled an appointment for the same time and then attempted to do some cardio.  I didn’t last long before I started to get dizzy again so we left the gym.

After resting we went into Subway and got subs.  I didn’t think I’d be able to eat much because of the way I felt so we got them to go and we took them home to eat.

I got a veggie delight again, lettuce, onions, cucs, green bell peppers, banana peppers, and vinegar, all on the 9-grain wheat bread. 

Picture 016

I wound up eating about 2/3 of it but that was it.  Now I’m ready to go to bed!  It was an exhausting but fun day.  I can’t wait to go back to the gym tomorrow to practice all the things we did tonight.  My goal is to next week accomplish everything we did tonight, and whatever else he throws at me without feeling sick.  I’m already feeling sore and I imagine I’ll be even more so tomorrow.  But I love that feeling!

Oh be sure to visit Meghann.  She’s joined Teams In Training and is going to raise $3,900 for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society!  She has a website set up for donations, (which I will gladly be donating to next pay day!)  And in return she’ll be running in the Rock n Roll San Diego Marathon!  How awesome is that? If you can’t donate, all her ad revenue is going towards her goal, so stop by and wish her luck on this amazing journey!

I hope you all have a great Friday!!!  Do you have any exciting plans for the weekend?

Constant Chill

I have been cold since I got out of bed this morning.  No amount of hot food or liquid could warm me up. I’m looking forward to posting this and then getting into bed.  I hope you all were able to stay warm today!

Breakfast was the same old, same old.  A vanilla Chobani, with peak protein granola, and dried cranberries.  It’s such a good combo I can’t get enough.

Picture 002

Along with my yogurt I had 2 prunes.

Picture 004

That sweater you see is my big emergency work sweater, when I’m really cold it’s big enough to fit over no matter what I’m wearing.  Even that sweater couldn’t warm me up today.

Around 10:30 I got super hungry, and my planned orange was not going to hold me over until lunch so I had 15 Kashi crackers.

That did a good job of filling me up until lunch time.  I was super excited about my lunch because I had packed a pb and banana sandwich on an Arnold Sandwich Thin.

This was the first time I had ever had a pb and banana sandwich, I’ve put pb on bananas though and loved it, so it’s no surprise this was a really great combo.

I also brought a kiwi!

I have not had a kiwi in such a long time, this was delicious warm weather treat, it made me wish for summer and warmer weather so badly!!

Around 3:30 I had 1/2 a green pepper all cut up.

After work I had plans to go to the gym, but tomorrow is my first session of personal training so I decided to take it easy with Andrew tonight before all hell breaks loose tomorrow.  I’m really excited but also really nervous about the training.  I can’t wait to see how it goes.

So for dinner we decided to make our favorite dinner of tacos but with a twist.  We picked up a rotisserie chicken on the way home from work and took all the white meat off, removed the skin, and shredded the meat. We found a seasoning mix with the least amount of sodium and all natural ingredients and used that to create our first batch of chicken tacos.

I put mine on a flat out wrap with lots of lettuce, onions, brown rice, 3 ounces of chicken, salsa, and about 1/2 an ounce of Mexican cheese blend.

I wound up overloading on the lettuce and had to take some off and I ate that on the side.

This was really good!  I thought it was almost as good if not better as when we make it with the extra lean ground beef.  I feel like the chicken just carried the flavor so much better.

This was a delicious meal! 

Well I hope you all had a great Wednesday, and have a wonderful Thursday.
