Thank you so much to everyone who wished me a happy birthday yesterday. I am so lucky to have so many wonderful friends.
I almost let myself stay in bed this morning, but I decided to get up and do 20 minutes of Tom Morley’s cardio yoga.
Breakfast: (work is out of oats; it’s sad)
1 large fuji apple
TJ’s greek yogurt (~3/4 cup?)
cheerios (~1/2 cup?)
This held me over so well and I have no idea why. Usually fruit for breakfast just makes me hungrier – perhaps it was the additional cheerios? Even though greek yogurt has a lot more protein than normal yogurt, I don’t find that when I have it for breakfast I stay very full. I think it must have been the cheerios. Anyway, it was delicious. Sorry for the lack of picture.
whole wheat wrap with turkey, cilantro chutney, onions, and lettuce
iceberg salad with nectarine, peppers, carrots, onions, and Newman’s Own lowfat sesame ginger dressing (this is in a large yogurt container – tall, but not very wide)
diet pepsi (only 1 today!)
After lunch (before the diet pepsi and the salad), I went for my hour-long walk. I’m very predictable, aren’t I? I ate my wrap before the walk, even though I still wasn’t very hungry. When I got back I waited about a half an hour and then had the salad. So I didn’t end up having the salad and pepsi until 2:15p or so. That wrap was amazing – filling, flavorful, and exactly what I was craving. The only downside was the fact that it had both onions and cilantro chutney, neither of which are good for the breath – gum to the rescue!
1 large fuji apple
Tonight I had choir practice, so it was a light dinner and a nice snack afterwards. When I packed my lunch today I figured I would make 2 very similar salads – one as more of a side salad to go with lunch, and one with more heft to it for my dinner.
big ole iceberg salad with nectarine, peppers, carrots, and organic chicken-apple-gouda sausage, topped with Newman’s Own lowfat sesame ginger dressing
So after practice I was planning on coming home and having some fruit and yogurt… but my dinner salad was so good that I decided to make another one, but I ripped up some turkey instead of the chicken sausage.

veggie plate with hummus – baby carrots, zucchini, mushrooms (more than pictured), and cauliflower (more than pictured). I probably ended up eating about 1/3-1/2 cup of hummus with all these veggies!
I’m off to watch some more Burn Notice and hit the sack. OnDemand has a new yoga video that I want to do tomorrow morning.
