Feels like a Thursday

Tomorrow is my last day of work for the week!  We head out to Miami early Thursday morning.

This morning I went on a nice 3.2 mile run – took about 26-27 minutes.  I got back and did yoga on my own for about 15 minutes to cool down.

Once I got to work I had the same breakfast as yesterday:

  • 1/2 cup oats, 1/2 banana, almost 2 cups water – microwaved for 2 minutes
  • 1/2 cup soy milk stirred in at the end
  • 1 apple on the side

I want to say again how much I like soupy oats.  They take forever to eat, and they are very filling.  I took an hour-long walk before lunch.  Then I came back and had:

  • open-faced sammie on WW bread – 1 piece of turkey bacon, sliced apple, and rice cheeze
  • cauliflower with Trader Minh’s dressing
  • less than 1/4 cup of cashews
  • another apple

And for a snack:

  • a honeycrisp apple
  • Apple Cinnamon Z-Bar

I didn’t get home from work until after 7.  I guess having a short week has its downsides, too.  I made a quick dinner of veggies and egg whites:

  • 2 egg whites, carrot, green pepper, onion, garlic, cabbage, apple, soy sauce, cinnamon, cumin, garlic powder, chili powder, and Asian 5-spice powder, all sauteed in a smidge of sesame oil
  • topped with yummy organic ketchup
  • some fruit (Asian pear and apple) on the side


  • a Kavli cracker with smart balance and olallieberry jam
  • a honeycrisp apple… oh I adore them.

I have a big assignment due tomorrow for nutrition, so that’s what I’m working on tonight.  I’m only auditing the class, but my professor said I was welcome to turn the assignment in anyway.  I have to record everything I eat for 3 days and enter it into FitDay.com for an analysis.  Fun!  I want to see how I’m doing with respect to getting all the nutrients that I need.  I’ll let you know if I find anything interesting.

The question of the night is: Mac or PC? I’m a Mac girl.  I switched a little over a year ago.  Bobby actually works for Microsoft… but in the Mac division!  He works on Office for Mac.  His home computer is a Mac too – we got ours at the same time.

  1. I like a PC.. Well, because I grew up with it. We had Macs at school, but they would be breaking down all the time and they weren’t that savvy. So, really, from the get-go, I had a bad experience with Macs. Hence why, I like PC’s more!

  2. I have used Microsoft all my life, but have been told over and over again that Mac is just better. I am trying to use my friend’s occassionaly but its so hard for me to get used to! Maybe some day

  3. MACS RULES!!!! I am in my forties and was warned by everyone that I could never adjust to a MAC. Wrong. My Mac Book is very intuitive and it doesn’t crash every couple of days like my old PC.

  4. AHHHHAYAYAYAYYYA!! Sorry for my Spaz Attack, but for some reason, your dinner is what I am craving. I have seen egg whites with ketchup all over blog world and I NEED SOME!!!! I put your little simple yet yummy lookin’ din din in my “to-make” folder when I get back home with a stove!! <3 thanks!

  5. I am SUPER jealous of your short week! Have funin Miami! That’s actaully hwere my Bro is in med school at the moment.

    And as much as I wish I were a Mac girl, I am sadly a PC one. Macs are just soooo expensive!

  6. turkey bacon, apple and cheese is soooo good 😀
    have a blasty in miami!!!
    i’ve always been a pc girl
    have a great day

  7. That sandwich looks so good. Well done!

    I’m a PC girl. I find PCs a bit more intuitive and if they break, my computer saavy, PC-using husband knows how to fix them. If I had a mac, I would be on my own!

  8. I love food that lasts longer. Soupy oatmeal can be good stuff!

    And I did the FitDay thing for my nutrition class too- it was fun! And you learn so much about what/how much you eat.

  9. That sandwich looks pretty awesome, I’ve been craving turkey bacon! I’m a PC girl all the way. I always wanted to be a Mac person (especially after that horror movie with lelie sobieski, the glass something…) but I get too confused!
