It’s almost Friday…

I did cardio yoga this morning before my dentist appointment (getting my permanent crown).  It was painful and I had to get novocaine again.  But she didn’t give me much and it wore off quickly.  I hate teeth.

I was able to eat my yummy breakfast:

3 breakfast3 300x225 Its almost Friday...

  • 1/2 cup oats, 1 chopped plum, 1 strawberry Dannon 0% Plus
  • 1 apple on the side

And I took my hour-long walk before…

Lunch: (something different today!)

I took this (from my nutrition professor!):

1 pumpkin 300x225 Its almost Friday...

To make this:

2 tofu shirataki pumpkin 300x225 Its almost Friday...

  • tofu shirataki noodles, 1 baby pumpkin, 1 apple, 2 pieces of turkey bacon, 2 small tomatoes, and balsamic vinegar
  • 1 chopped plum
  • 1 la tortilla factory whole wheat wrap

Snack:

4 cauliflower 300x225 Its almost Friday...

  • 2.5 cups of orange cauliflower with TJ’s raspberry vinaigrette
  • another WW wrap

Bobby stayed late at work today and I came home early (6pm) and cleaned.  I vacuumed, cleaned the bathroom, cleaned out the recycling and trash, did the laundry, and dismantled this humongous crate that my dad sent us the Clavinova in (Clavinova = really nice Yamaha electric piano… UPS didn’t treat it so well though; we’re not sure if it’s okay yet because we have to fix the plug).  I was so happy that I got all this done – I’m always on edge when my house isn’t sparkling and I haven’t been able to clean much at all this week.

There were leftovers from the veggie feast last night, so Bobby had those and I made myself another pumpkin dish – pumpkin-apple-stirfry!  Yes, I know, another stirfry icon smile Its almost Friday...   But I switched up the spices and flavoring and it was a great meal.

Dinner:

6 dinner 300x225 Its almost Friday...5 plum 300x225 Its almost Friday...

  • pumpkin, red pepper, egg whites, onion, carrot, celery, bacon bits, apple – seasoned with rice vinegar, pumpkin pie spice, and soy sauce – served over romaine lettuce
  • chopped plum
  • a few bites of veggie “beef” leftovers

Dessert/Snacks: (I know I eat most of my calories at night… this is what works for me.  At some point in the future I think I’d like to eat more earlier, but… I stay up late.  And I get hungry.)

7 mess 300x225 Its almost Friday...8 apple raspberry 300x225 Its almost Friday...9 lychee 300x225 Its almost Friday...

  • pumpkin, fage, honey (probably more than necessary – at least a tablespoon?), pumpkin pie spice, raspberry sauce, wheat germ
  • apple with Red Raspberry Spread (no sugar added)
  • I also snacked on some pumpkin when I put it away…
  • dried lychees… and many sunflower seeds icon biggrin Its almost Friday...

I got the raspberry spread at Marshalls last weekend.  It’s delicious!  And at only 10 calories per tablespoon I’m loving it.  I got two jars so this should be around for a while.

I’m so excited for the weekend – we have absolutely nothing planned, and I want to relax and enjoy it!  What are you all doing?

    Do you happen to know what model/make your Clavinova is?!? That’s so awesome you have one! I have had mine for a few years and it is one of the greatest things ever! I’m so happy to see someone who actually knows what a Clavinova is. Haha! I used to compete in Clavinova competitions all the time…they’re so much fun!! :) Hope you love it!

    Dentists? Two thumbs DOWN.

    I’ve always wanted to be able to find tofu shirataki noodles! I just don’t think they have them anywhere around here though. SIGH.

    That raspberry spread looks delicious, it’s so VIBRANT. And dried lychees? How cool is that?!
