Long time, No post…

Good Evening Lovers and Friends! It’s been a while…
Bowl O Veg

Bowl O Veg

My apologies for the super lack of postage. After I taught Pilates last night (oh Heather, have you really given it a chance!?), I came home, had some food, and was ready to crash. Then I stayed up a little too long and my tiredness went away. As a result I really didn’t sleep, and I did some serious snacking…PB and vanilla whey, mixed up all creamy and nice. My belly hurt all day today and still feels kinda funny…that always happens when I eat too much too late.

Aaaanyway. Today has been superlong, and not just because I didn’t get any sleep. I was at school from 8:30 until 7. I did get a workout in, but we’ll discuss that in a bit.

The bowl o veg up top was part of tonights dinner. It was ALMOST too big to finish. I mustered up the gusto. This accompanied it:

Chicken Romaine Mexicana

That is a bowl of romaine with two kinds of salsa, reduced fat sour cream, and some chickie that I grilled and cut up. So yum. The veggies were: two different kinds of garden toms, garden squash, garden cuke, broccoli, cauli, baby bellas, yellow onion…and two seasoning shakers: southwest chipotle, and nacho cheeses popcorn sprinkles. Again, so yum.

So that’s all I’ve got for you in the way of food…

My workout was a triathlon today. Not in the traditional sense…no. I biked, I ran, but there was no swimming (this girl’s got bad. ears.). Instead, there was rowing. I biked 57 miles, ran 8.17, and rowed 2. These were in a couple of different sessions. I was having random time to kill on campus, and working out helped me to not focus on how ick my belly and my head were feeling today. I also weighed the bag I was lugging around campus all day…eighteen pounds! Boo. Way too heavy. Needless to say, I am tuckered out, and SO excited that I don’t have to wake up to an alarm in the morning. No classes to take, no classes to teach! WOOOOOHOOOOOO.

Hope ya’ll are superstoked to be headin downhill in the week!

Night.

Dinner and Workouties.

I came home from an 8.5 miler to a delicious smell in the kitchy. BonMaman had made wholewheat panko breaded chickie. I cut it into small chunklets and put them in a big ol’ veggie salad with some sugar free bbq sauce.

I spun for two hours in the morning today. Like I mentioned at the beginning of this post, I ran 8.5 in the eve. Mile 8 was sprinting straights, recovering curves…then .5 mile was cooldown jog-pace. The whole 8.5 took 64 minutes.

It was the first day of classes, too.  Needless to say it’s been a loooong one.  I think I finally got my schedule figured out though.  There is a class called Wilderness Nutrition, I could use it as an elective for my Nutrition Minor, but I can’t get in!  I am bummed, I thought it sounded like a great class!

Update while eating lunch. Yum.

After doing Pilates on the reformers with my bon maman for a little over an hour. I was really shaky all during our sesh. I think I had too much or too strong of coffee this morning. I don’t really think there is such a thing as too much coffee. :-D. Afterward, I ran around the hood and ended up at home. 9 miles in 64 minutes. Average pace: 7:11…LOVE THAT! What a FAB number. I really had no control over my legs today, they were just cruisin. Love and Hate that, as I am a control FReAKy.

Had a ton to drink when I got home, munched on romaine hearts and red bell pepper dipped in fat free sour cream/salsa/ranchy dip mixture. Lots of it. And ate a sugar free creamsicle. My brother was here visiting when I got home. I only see him once every couple of weeks, so I waited to make my real meal until after he left, as he wasn’t hungry to eat with me.

I made myself a bowl of veggies with shirataki noodles, sriracha, sugarfree bbq, and fat free ranch. Veg were: homegrown yellow squash, broccoli, spinach, field greens, and baby bella mushrooms. It was ohsotasty but my belly is now super full. I also had a homegrown tomato with bleu cheese salad dressing and a cup of lowfat cottage cheese. Nobody wants to see a photo of a bowl of cottage cheese, and the tomato came straight off the vine, into my drooling cakehole (or tomatohole, in this case).

One bowl…two shots. For your viewing pleasure, of course (claro que si!)

On to last night. The menu was different than the one that was online. BOOOO. I hate it when restaurants don’t update their sites. We sat outside, and it was a hot one folks. So I pretty much decided I wanted cold food. I’m not a sandwich lova, which left me with a couple of salad options. The one with the most veggies (julienned carrots, green and yellow squash, red onion, and red bell) was a steak salad. I wasn’t jivin on the red meat last night, so I asked for blackened chicken instead. It also came with a side of jasmine rice (weird, no?) so I asked for extra veggies instead of rice. The salad comes out on a SALADSIZEDPLATE. There were four strips each of squash and bell. No carrots. No onions. Definitely NO extra veggies in sight. It was on top of romaine, with nice blackened chicken on top. Chipotle ranch on the side, and a side of salsa that I requested. The dressing was great, the chicken was tender, but I ate THEWHOLEDAMN thing, and definitely left hungry. I asked our server about the extra veg, and he said they were on there. Then asked if I wanted the side of rice. HUH? Doomkoff.

I had some leftover salmon salad, and sugarfree jello mixed with vanilla carbmaster yogurt after we went to Ryan’s parents house for carrotcake and presents. My belly was finally happy.
