Goodeats for 9/17/2008

This morning I tried to get up. I really did. Couscous (our cat) was meowing and meowing for no apparent reason and I was exhausted. I got up with enough time to do 15 minutes of The Biggest Loser Cardio Max Workout with Bob Harper. I’ve done the video before, and it is intense. By the end (only 23 minutes or so), I’m usually sweaty. When I stopped after 15 minutes I was starting to sweat – which means I was really working out! I don’t sweat much normally.

I wanted to see if yesterday’s breakfast really was filling or if that was a fluke, so I had the same thing today… And it was filling! It must be the cheerios.
  • 1 large fuji apple
  • 2/3 cup TJ’s greek yogurt
  • 1/2 cup cheerios
After yesterday’s salad-fest, I wanted a more carby, fruity lunch.
  • 1 large WW wrap slathered with Dannon 0% Plus (free yogurt from work; this combo is delish)
  • 2 nectarines
  • 2 diet pepsis – I’m trying to cut down to 1 per day. Let’s see how it goes!
  • peppers and mushrooms with hummus
I ate the two nectarines, then went for my hour-long walk. When I came back I wasn’t that hungry, but ate the wrap and yogurt anyway because I knew I should have been hungry by then. I love that combination – healthy carbs + yogurt – it’s what I live for. The veggies and hummus ended up being eaten a little later since for some reason my hunger wasn’t kicking in.
Ahh… but it did kick in around 5pm.
  • 1 large fuji apple
For dinner Bobby and I met up with a friend from the Fed (my old place of work in SF). We ate at Kabul, a delicious Afghani restaurant in Sunnyvale. I say she’s from the Fed, but she’s actually on her last two weeks there – she’s decided to pursue other interests. Hi Nina! Bobby and I shared dinner, which was perfect for this restaurant – portions are huge.
  • 1/2 of this salad
  • 2 pieces of this chicken
  • most of this Gulpi (cauliflower stew) – it was fantastic. I have no idea if it was healthy or not.


  • cauliflower with hummus (plus a few unpictured baby carrots)
  • 1 large nectarine
