Just another Monday

I got up early this morning (to leave work early for class) and did Cardio Yoga.  I love it 🙂


  • 1/2 cup oats, a splash of milk, 1 cup water
  • 1/2 mashed banana
  • 1/2 chopped apple
  • 1.5 T wheat germ

Mid-morning snack:

  • 2.5 cups of red grapes

Hour-long walk at lunch…


  • leftover lentil soup (3/4 cup) with lots of added veggies (okra, eggplant, onions, carrot)
  • chopped plum


  • 2 cups of cauliflower with more lentil soup (3/4 cup or so)
  • another 2.5 cups of red grapes

Nutrition was great.  My professor knows about the blog and the way I eat and she gave me some very informative literature about food additives – which I don’t really have to worry about, because I don’t eat much processed foods – but that’s why she thought I might be interested 🙂  It’s a really good read, and if any of you have questions about a specific additive, just ask!

Poor Bobby is sick with something that we hope is NOT the flu, so I made him chicken and rice soup.  It was actually really good, even though I completely made up the recipe on the spot.  Maybe I’ll post it.  I also made more apple crisp for us (but I added a pear this time too!).

All the beans I had today really filled me up, so I made a pretty light dinner for me…


  • stirfry over lettuce (1 apple, 1 whole red pepper, carrot, onion, eggplant, bacon bits, balsamic vinegar, soy sauce, celery)

But then it turned out that I really was hungry.  So I had dessert times 2 – and then I kept sneaking the apples and pears out of the crisp, leaving Bobby with hardly anything BUT crisp:

  • apple-pear crisp with soy ice cream (espresso and green tea flavors)

That’s my new Real Simple!  I meant to read it while I was eating dessert but I kept getting distracted.  And then I had to clean and do a bunch of other stuff so I still haven’t started it…

And snack:

  • 2 more medium apples
  • terra chips… gahhh, why do I let Bobby get these?  I can’t resist them.

I also made our lunches for tomorrow, and did the dishes, and took care of Bobby.  And now I’m going to try to read my magazine.  Hope you all had a wonderful Monday.  I got some really great answers to my fruit question yesterday, so I’m happy!  Thanks for all of your responses!

  1. Sharon – Terra chips are SO. GOOD. I don’t really like potato chips but I love these – they are so flavorful, and there are lots of different types of chip like regular potato, sweet potato, and taro chips. Yum. Yeah, the soup I made him was pretty much congee 🙂 He liked it!

  2. i hope bobby gets better soon!

    your stir fry looks chock-full of goods! and i just love your dessert – i wouldn’t be able to stop at x2 i think!

  3. Do you use Exercise TV? I’ve seen Jillian’s Cardio Shred on there and have been curious about it!! And did you find the cardio yoga on there as well?

    Your oats look so creamy this morning! And I love the looks of that soy ice cream dessert 🙂

    My Bobby is currently sick with something I’m hoping is not the flu, too! Must be a Bobby thing 😉 Let’s just hope that we don’t get sick, right?

  4. Hi Mag,

    could you try entering your email in our subscription form again? I think I have it working again.

    Wouldn’t want you to miss out on the giveaway! 😉

    Aloha, Nate

  5. eatingbender – I do use ExerciseTV! I love it. You’re right, the cardio yoga is on there too – under Yoga and Pilates, I think. Hope your Bobby feels better soon!
    CCV – I think it’s called Vinyasa yoga – it’s not running or anything, but it’s more fluid movement and not as much holding poses forever. You still hold them for 2-3 breaths, but you definitely get winded during the workout… especially if you do it after another workout, like the 30-day shred ones. The instructor is Tom Morley.
