Add a few tiddely poms!

Does anyone recognize the title?

This morning I tried a new yoga video by my favorite guy (Tom Morley of Cardio Yoga) – Buns and Thighs Yoga!  It was a nice 20-minute workout.


  • 1/2 cup oats, 1.5 cups water, 1/2 banana, 2/3 cup Fage 0% Greek yogurt
  • an apple

Mid-morning I snacked on a wrap, then took my hour walk before lunch and talked to my parents.  I’m so excited to see my dad tomorrow!


  • 1 WW wrap with PB&J, topped with sliced apples
  • carrots and celery with salsa & bbq sauce
  • an apple
  • cashews (1/4 cup)


  • another wrap
  • an apple

Class was fun; I picked up our Tofurky for Thanksgiving on the way home.  I printed out a $0.75 coupon for it though!  I also got Bobby more of his pretzels.  He grabbed a 6-inch from Subway (tonight was his crazy night) for dinner, which counts toward our challenge total.

Total spent at Whole Foods (Tofurky and pretzels): $11.53

And at Subway: $2.99

Thanksgiving Challenge Total so far: $35.04

For dinner I made my Blogger Secret Ingredient recipe – Italian Eggplant Stirfry!  It’s “Italian” because I used spaghetti sauce and topped it with cheese (rice cheese that is).  I’m so glad Meghann from “The Inner Workings of a College Graduate” chose Eggplant!


  • 1/2 eggplant, sliced in 1 cm slices
  • 2 cups chopped cabbage
  • 1/2 carrot, chopped
  • 1/2 green pepper, chopped
  • 2 thick slices of onion, chopped
  • spices: red pepper flakes, garlic powder, cilantro, cumin
  • 2/3-3/4 cup spaghetti sauce
  • shredded cheese (I used rice cheeze)


  1. Dip the eggplant in salted water and cook in a saute pan for 2-3 minutes on each side.  Sprinkle it with the spices while cooking.
  2. In another saute pan (or a wok; I used a wok), saute the rest of the veggies (carrot, cabbage, onion, pepper) for 3-4 minutes.  I like to add some water to make the cabbage cook better.
  3. Add the eggplant to the rest of the veggies.  Continue to cook until everything is tender.  I usually add some more water to keep things moist.
  4. Add the spaghetti sauce and remove from heat.  Mix well.
  5. Top with shredded cheese and enjoy!

I also had a veggie plate with TJ’s Sesame Soy Ginger Dressing:


  • honeydew with greek yogurt, applesacue, wheat germ, and cashews
  • a few bites of vanilla soy ice cream to finish it off
  • a few mindless cups of millet puffs (I didn’t really realize I was eating them as I watched TV…)
  • EDIT – to add trail mix

Changing topics – I am very happy with the election results.  Though I didn’t really support either candidate at first (I’m a libertarian), I think Obama will make a great president and I’m hopeful for the future.

My dad comes to visit tomorrow!  Have a great Thursday!

    hey there! I’ve been reading your blog for a bit and I’m curious to know what this Cardio Yoga is you’ve been doing. I found one On Demand last night but I’m not sure its the same one. Who’s the trainer/host? I’m looking to add some variety to my workouts.

    Hooray for your Dad visiting- I hop you have a great visit with him. I recommend taking him to the Thai place that we went 🙂

    Also, your BSI dish looks fab and now I want to go buy some eggplant.

    Last thing, how did you eat your wrap with apple slices? Did you roll it up or eat it like pizza?
