08 October 2008

This morning I wasn’t going to work out and I even reset my alarm to get up later… but I got up anyway!  I did a NEW workout from ExerciseTV: Lisa Wheeler’s Cardio Interval Sculpt.  I haven’t been getting very sweaty from the 30-day shred anymore (I tend to stop sweating once I get used to a workout) and I was very pleased to find myself soaked and exhausted after this short (30 minutes) workout.  I felt pretty awesome.

Breakfast:

3 breakfast1 300x225 08 October 2008

  • 1 banana, Fage 0% Greek yogurt, cheerios, topped with wheat germ (I’m addicted)

Midmorning Snack:

  • apple

I got in my hour-long walk before lunch today, too.  Do you guys take walks throughout the day, or do you prefer to get in your whole workout all at once?

Lunch:

1 lunch wrap 300x225 08 October 20082 lunch salad1 300x225 08 October 2008

  • wrap with Almond Butter, banana
  • big salad – romaine, carrot, onion, bacon bits, plum, heirloom tomato, red pepper, TJ’s balsamic vinaigrette

Snacks:

  • WW wrap
  • apple
  • plum

Then I had my nutrition class – we learned about carbs today.  Everyone would do themselves a favor by having some carbs as soon as they wake up in the morning!  After a nighttime fast we start breaking down the proteins in our bodies if we don’t get some carbs…  But you guys probably already knew that icon smile 08 October 2008   I always wondered why I craved carby things in the morning and now I know why.

Dinner:

4 spaghetti squash stirfry 300x225 08 October 2008

  • spaghetti squash stir-fry – chicken breast, spaghetti squash, red peppers, okra, onions, garlic, carrot – and I added balsamic vinegar and soy sauce at the end.  I may post this recipe sometime soon; it’s so simple but incredibly good.  I went back for another serving.

I actually started to make my normal dessert concoction – chocolate almond milk (the last of the carton), Greek yogurt, fruit (but instead I used some extra spaghetti squash), cinnamon, honey, and some wheat germ – but after two bites I threw it out.  I guess spaghetti squash doesn’t work as a dessert at all, unlike other squash (in particular butternut).  So I made this instead…

Dessert:

6 dessert 300x225 08 October 2008

  • banana, Fage 0% Greek yogurt, mixed berry applesauce, and wheat germ!

Dessert was great icon smile 08 October 2008

While I was making Bobby’s and my lunches I snacked on half a pear, some peanuts, and a few spoonfuls of wheat germ.  I hope you’re all having a great night/morning!  Enjoy Thursday!

EDIT:  Frozen mango is great!  I just tried it icon smile 08 October 2008  Thank you to whoever suggested this!  Bobby likes it too.

    I wish I could take walks during the work day! I think it’s great you get to take that mental and physical break for yourself.

    I usually run and work out in the morning, but sometimes I try to take walks around lunch time at work. I wish I could take one everyday, but sometimes my schedules just doesnt’ allow. it

    Taking long walks at once is a great stress-reliever for me.
