Hello! 🙂

It’s been a good day.  I started out with a super sweaty workout at the gym.  30 minutes on the elliptical with the last 10 minutes being 30 second sprints. Lovely.  Then I moved on to my awesome new circuit routine. I was not as strong as last time, but still as sweaty. hehe

THEN I moved on to Women’s Health Master 3 Pullups plan.  I have NEVER EVER completed a pull-up, have you? Want to join me in trying? Today was my first day – Step 1: Flexed-arm hang – the goal is 3 25-second holds and then move on to the next goal- I did 7 then 3 then 1.  Looks like I have something to work towards! 🙂

Breakfast (285 cal): Protein was in order after that workout.  I stuffed a flat-out with egg whites/spinach, a little FF cheddar, a NEW MorningStar Farms Maple Flavored Sausage patty and avocado. V. yummy, but a little sweet.

Mid-morning Snack (353 cal): I made a nice warm bowl of cinnamon oat bran topped with blackberries and a 100-cal pack of Walnuts and Almonds. On the side I had another maple flavored sausage.  It was much better on it’s own and would be great with pancakes/waffles/french toast.  And hey, you can’t beat 5 grams of yummy protein for 40 calories!

Lunch (426 cal): Ummm I was being lazy 😳 so I picked up a salad from downstairs.  I topped it with some things from home and devoured it. YUM!

Mid-afternoon Snack (163 cal): Thank you Erin @ Care to Eat for opening my eyes to the wonderful world of ‘fu pudding. I am seriously in love! After I finished eating lunch I whipped up a batch of chocolate & PB ‘fu pudding before heading back to work.  Unfortunately, I left my kitchen a wreck, but it was worth it.  I took 1/2 of the loveliness back to work with me and topped it with Kashi GoLean. I may or may not have licked the bowl. 😀 My ‘fu included: 1 block Mori-NU Lite Firm, 2 T unsweetened cocoa, 2 T PB2, splenda. I am so excited to try other combos.

Dinner (484 cal): I started with a salad topped with blackberries, sunflower seeds, a sparse sprinkle of parmesan and a little FF Italian dressing.  My main course was half a pita stuffed with a MorningStar Farms Vegan Griller, pickles and ketchup. On the side I had a mix of green beans/yellow squash/onion/red peppers/broccoli stalks, baked beans, and chips lacking any nutritional value FF Pringles.IMG_0427
