1/2 C oats
1/3 cup pumpkin
2 tsp flax
2 tsp noni juice
1 chopped fig (the white-ish kind from WF; I like these way better than the dark figs)
2 chopped strawberries
sprinkling of carob chips
I topped it with my usual 1/2 cottage cheese and a small spoon of PB.
I had a fantastic day yesterday! It started with a great workout. I did 44 minutes of running and walking on the treadmill. It was probably about 25 minutes of actual running and the rest walking. It said I burned 415 calories, and I usually enter a weight about 10 pounds less to offset the inaccurately high numbers it gives. Whatever; it felt good. Then I returned home to find the Mix My Granola that I won from Jenna's giveaway.
Of course I had to try some right away! It's seriously delicious!!!
I thought this piece of dried strawberry was particularly cute! :)
For the fastest lunch ever (I seriously had about 8 minutes to prepare, heat and eat this!) I made this Indian entree with one whole zucchini chopped into it:
It said there are two servings in it, but they would have been tiny servings, so really there was only one, 200 calorie, serving! :)
Then I taught two violin lessons and I did the grocery shopping I mentioned. I stopped at WF and got a bunch of good stuff. Here's the produce:
- red chard
- one onion
- 3 organic gala apples
- green beans on sale ($1/lb!)
-Cheddar Nut Thins
-Can of pumpkin
-2 Odwalla bars ($1 each, to be chopped up on oatmeal!)
-5 figs (also to be oatmeal toppings)
-skim Kefir (I like it and I had a coupon!)
-1 ThinkBeautiful bar (aka, ThinkThin--but that's a terrible name!)
-1 Balance bar (I had coupons for all the bars, making them around $1 each)
-this Green Kombucha as a special treat! I LOVE them, but they're over $3 each which is obscenely expensive! Even on sale it was $3 even, but I just really wanted it. Ugh, Please bring the price down, oh highly esteemed Kombucha-making company!
I also ate an apple in my car on the way home.
Then I went to adult gymnastics!! So exciting! I got my aerial cartwheel back! And I connected roundoff back tuck on trampoline, back layouts on tramp, and was feeling good with my front handsprings on floor. I also found out that I can do this one really cool "breakdancing" pose where I'm on my hands and both knees are resting on my right elbow, feet off the ground. I had an awesome time! That was about 1 hour and 10 minutes, and it was another good workout!
I came home and was pretty hungry so I made this shake:
I'm not going to lie. I really didn't like this AT ALL. It's pretty gross, actually! Sorry BioChem people. I WANTED to like it! I REALLY TRULY did. And I still drank it all because of the amazing nutritional information. But it honestly tasted HORRIBLE. I'm sorry, but I just cant recommend it. But I did get a crap ton of amazing nutrients! :)
I had some Cheddar Nut Thins with it to help offset the shake's taste.
I was still hungry so I made a delicious bowl of Kefir and MixMyGranola! Yummm! I threw some puffed Kamut in to give it more volume.
I went out to a bar VERY close to my house with my friend--yes, him--and we talked for another 2 hours. During which time I sipped two large vodka and cranberries. I wonder if I'd lose weight if I stopped drinking? But really now, what fun would that be? Besides, cranberry juice has lots of vitamin C and vodka is VEGAN!! Hahaha!
P.S. Peanut Butter and Jenny is giving away some amazing snacks!
Happy Friday everyone!!!
