Goodeats for 9/24/2008

I forgot to set my alarm this morning.  It could have been bad, but instead I woke up only 10 minutes later than scheduled, and because I woke up naturally, I felt great!  I got up and did 30-day Shred, Level 1.

Review: so far I am loving these workouts.  Jillian Michaels does a fantastic job with motivation and there is enough variety to keep me from getting bored.  It’s structured as a circuit workout – 3 minutes of strength, 2 minutes of cardio, and 1 minute of abs.  Repeat 3 times, plus a short warmup and cooldown.  Within each of those intervals are 2 different exercises.  If anyone is interested, I can write out exactly what her routine is.  Just let me know!


  • 1 large nectarine, chopped
  • 1 cup cheerios
  • Dannon 0% Plus yogurt (blueberry)

Morning snack: (hungrier than usual due to 30-day Shred?  Probably…)

  • 1 huge, delicious nectarine (no pic, sorry!  there’s another picture of a nectarine below…)

After the nectarine, I wasn’t that hungry when noon rolled around – so I took my hour-long walk before lunch.  It was nice and relaxing.


  • salad (almost the same as yesterday) – iceberg, sauteed zucchini and onion, vegan bacon bits, topped with homemade honey-mustard (honey, yellow mustard, Fage 0%)

  • WW wrap with turkey, a few chunks of nectarine, and cilantro chutney

I was really full.  Until 3 o’clock rolled around…


  • 1 gala apple (no pic; see below if you want to see another apple 😀 )
  • trail mix Kashi bar

I had my second nutrition class tonight.  It was great; I’m learning so much and I love what I’m learning.  I can’t remember ever feeling this way about a class before.


  • okra squash shrimp gumbo (I had about 2.5 times what is pictured – it was too good) – I’ll try to get the recipe up tomorrow!
  • salad – lettuce, sauteed zucchini and onions, bacon bits, and honey mustard dressing (seconds on this too)


  • nectarine

  • 1 apple with cilantro chutney (chutney unpictured – it was a last spur-of-the-moment idea)

Edited – snack:

  • some apple crisps
  • 2.5 la tortilla factory WW wraps – didn’t really realize how many I’d eaten… they only have 80 calories apiece though, and tons of fiber.

  1. I want to try the shred out, but I dont think I have a good space to do it in my apt…hmm, may have to wait til I move next year! I don’t think I’ve ever put nectarine in my wraps before!? What a great idea…sounds really good

  2. did you make the cilantro chutney or buy it?? the wrap looks wonderful!
    i totally know what you mean about those la tortilla factory wraps– they’re sooo good though and very low in calories.
    hope you have a great night!

  3. I’m really interested in finding out moves jillian uses in shred! sounds interesting. la tortilla factory tortillas rock! i love them. don’t love the price tho.
