Oh such a drama household we have. Not to go into too much detail, but we just had a “house meeting” which ended up with 2 roommates vs. the other 2 roommates, people mad, defensive and just leaving the room in silence. Oy vey.
Woke up this morning after a night of burnin’ lack of sleep from my forgotten sunscreen yesterday (whoops!!)
(attempt at puppy dog pout, but it really just looks like my mouth is full of mouthwash or somethin). I guess it doesn’t look too bad in the picture, but ouchie! I’m aloe-ing it up!
On to EATS:
Kashi blueberrie waffles topped with sliced banana, cookie dough PB, more crumbed PB & syrup. While delicious, I definitely overdid it at breakfast. For some reason I have in my head that I must eat in “two’s” – 2 pieces of toast, 2 waffles…I always have two and then often times end up uncomfortably full! I know this doesn’t seem like too much, but keep in mind a lot of people only have 1 banana or something small before workouts. While I had 1 banana on top of 2 waffles with PB! And 3 cups of coffee (aka liquid that fills the belly) don’t help! I need to work on eating until satisfied, or not eating in two’s at breakfast time!! haha.
I made another burrito to bring to work:
with a side of plump juicy strawberries
And I most definitely did not help myself to frozen Costco vanilla cake. I’m not even a huge cake fan! But it was good 🙂
After work, I ran to the store to pick up mint for my recipe tonight! Minty Bulgar Wheat and Peach Salad
Recipe in the link, but it was pretty much just bulgar, jicama, peach & mint tossed with a dressing. I was looking forward to making this all week, and it was a major letdown. Bland, and too minty for my taste! Guess I’m not a huge fan of mint. Too bad it made 8 servings!! Ahh well at least I got to experience purchasing and cutting up a jicama – first time for that one!
While my salad was “chillin'” (like a villain!) in the fridge, I snacked on carrots, jicama & the cucumber yogurt dip:
For anyone curious, I didn’t actually make this dip. I found it at Costco!
So sorry, no recipe 😦
Bowl of the minty bulgar salad, garlic chicken patty topped with guac, Annie’s Thousand Island (yuck, tossing this thing pronto!) and BBQ sauce for dipping, and a side spinach salad with goat cheese & Annie’s Goddess dressing. With a glass of wine pomegranate cranberry juice in a classy Target ($1 section!) margarita glass (all our cups were dirrrrty). Doesn’t look like tons but I am still full!!
But not full enough for some of this puppy:
Vegan Maple Spice Cake from the local natural foods store. Like I said, I’m not much of a cake person at all..but WOW. The cake part of this, while hardly having any flavor, was incredibly moist and the sweet frosting balanced out the mild cake perfectly. I had about half this slice, and could’ve easily eaten the whole thing. I honestly don’t usually even like cake much! I may or may not have also had a few bites of my Starbucks Caramel Macchiato ice cream along with it 😀
I hit up the gym after breakfast this morning for:
- 20 minutes stairmaster intervals (level 12-14)
- 10 minutes treadmill incline 15%, 4 mph
- 20 minutes upper body strength
- 15 minute ab work
That treadmill segment was hard and I was panting! I’m sure to the pleasure of the girl next to me 😉 I didn’t read, but I did watch a rerun of Charmed on TV (guilty pleasure). What do you all do when working on out machines? Music, read, TV, zone…? I can read on the stairmaster (which I often do), but there’s no way on the treadmill!
Time to call it a night! Long work day tomorrow. Was going to do a “run” in the AM, but I think I’ll put that off until Thursday since my knee twinged today. Any pain whatsoever = no run for me!
And just a little last reminder of:
Yes it was THAT good.
Sorry I can’t send you some but…
