Salad & soy yogurt love + an old oaty favorite

Last night’s dinner out was really nice.  We went to Sprout Cafe and followed it up with frozen yogurt (soy) at Fraiche. I love the cucumbers in the water at dinner.


It was a base of romaine hearts, with 10 toppings (!) – bean sprouts, broccoli, chickpeas, cucumber, green beans, kalamata olives, red bell peppers, sweet corn, apple, and grapes.  The dressing was a chili lime vinaigrette – delicious.

Here’s an old picture of the soy yogurt I got – topped with cinnamon.


After dinner we went to a friend’s house to hang out with another college friend that was visiting!  He’s getting a PhD in something bio-ish.  I ended up snacking on 2 mini apples after we got back (around 11pm).  Right before bed Bobby and I did yogadownload’s lunar flow #1 – really relaxing.

This morning I woke up sore.  I went for a 3.5 mile run yesterday after not running since November, and I don’t think I stretched properly.  So I went for an easy Cardio Dance routine by Paula Abdul.  I’ve done it a few times recently and I finally have the moves down.  I followed it up with yogadownload’s balancing flow #1, which was nice.


Breakfast was a new & yummy combo – whipped banana old fashioned oats and wheat bran + a big spoonful of PB&Co’s Mighty Maple peanut butter.  I’ve missed oats since I discovered oat bran!  And miso soup of course.

I am off to tackle more todos:

  • laundry
  • grocery shopping
  • cruise stuff
  • cleaning – done!! (mostly)
  • litter box
  • nap (just kidding… maybe)
  • getting outside for a nice walk – good weather today!
  • tutoring
  • freelance work (yikes, I’ve been procrastinating)
  • mani at some point

    How fun! A cardio dance workout 🙂 They just put a zumba class in at my gym and I want to try it but have no rhythm and think I would look like an idiot! Hhaha someday I’ll give it a try

    Nice job on the run! I wish there was a place to get soy yogurt like that in NY — I’m going to do a little search now 🙂

    I had cucumbers in my water recently, too! So good and refreshing! lol on the cardio dance – those things are fun, but I’m slow on getting the moves. You’d think with all the zumba I did I would be better! lol 🙂
