Hey Yo! We made it over the hump of the week! I’m super happy that this week is zooming by; it’s just cruising downhill from here.
You can probably guess what was on my
plate for breakfast today…yep, waffles it was! I went with an “open-faced sandwich” today – the more PB & banana, the better.
I normally don’t get to eat lunch home on Wednesdays, so it was a treat to have a break in my day to do so. I was dreaming of this lunch all morning.
Green Monster a la:
1/2 frozen banana
1/2 cup mixed berries [strawberries, raspberries, blueberries & blackberries]
1/2 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
1 cup fresh baby spinach
Sandwich a la:
whole wheat toast
extra sharp white cheddar
fresh baby spinach
…and because I always have something sweet to polish off a meal:
Remember the box of No Pudge Fudge Brownie Mix my mama gave me?
4 T mix
2 T 0% Vanilla Greek Yogurt
a few bittersweet chocolate chips
+ 1 minute in Mr. Micro = a guiltless decadent dessert.
After my last class, I rushed home to make an early dinner in lightening speed. I guess I should be on Iron Chef because this rushed salad was a victory!
It screamed Spring – fresh color, color, color!
Baby Arugula, Spinach & Lettuce Mix, Carrot, Edamame, Tomatoes, Sunflower Seeds, Feta, Olive Oil & Seasoned Rice Vinegar + Fresh Pepper
I also tested out a new item I picked up at TJ’s yesterday – edamame hummus – with a couple multigrain crackers. As if hummus couldn’t get any healthier, this was colorful too. Edamame makes green hummus – surprise, surprise.
I didn’t have a lot of time to savor my delicious & nutritious dinner because I had to rush out the door to go baby-sit. Edamame –> Idamommy…wow, I’m ridiculous. I wish I had had time to workout today, but making a little extra cash is always helpful. Plus, yesterday’s time at The Resort left my legs sore today:
1 mile indoor track run @ 8:10
strength [arms + legs]:
- seated row: 20 @ 40 lbs.
- bicep curls: 40 @ 10 lbs.
- “weights-to-chin”: 20 @ 10 lbs.
- bicep curl lunges: 20 @ 20 lbs.
- glute press: 40 @ 40 lbs.
- squats: 40 @ 20 lbs.
1/2 mile indoor track run @ 4:15
30-minute spin [11.2 mi.]
1/2 mile indoor track run @ 5:00
There are my eats for the day [minus a couple post-sittin’ snacks]. It felt good to take photos of my food again. It’s become part of me; the addiction is in my blood : )
How do you like to consume edamame?
