I dunno why tumblr wouldn’t let me change what blog it was posting too. /: it was just easier to take a picture instead of rewrite it.
Having a hard time not eating junks. /: so much faster then cooking. How do you guys keep from giving in to junks?
Day 7 - May 7, 2013
BREAKFAST: Cinnamon Apple Oatmeal, Peanut Butter Toast with Strawberries
I make my oatmeal with Vanilla almond milk instead of water and its awesome. And I add cinnamon and apples so it doesn’t taste like baby food and has some real texture. Lol.
LUNCH: Tuna Pasta Salad
Revenge of the leftovers. Haha. I posted a recipe I found at self.com and basically took the extra pasta from yesterday and just threw the extra green beans in because I opened a can yesterday and didn’t use them all. I also used can tuna instead of that packet stuff like in the recipe. This one isn’t cooked like yesterdays tho so it’s a nice cool pasta salad.
DINNER: Steak, Mushroom, & Spinach Salad
DESERT: Hagen Daz ice cream bar
WORKOUT: Did an arms workout, daily ab calendar, I was trying to do this 5 minute ab video but they do Russian twists and I have a hard time leaning on my butt bone (um real name?). Anyone else have this problem or am I jus doing it wrong?
My lunch for today. Self.com has some good, easy recipes.
Day 6 - May 6, 2013
I fucked up this weekend but its not over. Just gonna work extra hard this week.
BREAKFAST: Greek Yogurt, Strawberries, Green Tea
Fage Mango is my least favorite. The fruit flavor is good but it’s chunky. I do not like chunky. Blegggh.
SNACK: Half a Coconut Manju
LUNCH: Tomato, Green Bean, & Spinach pasta
Got this great recipe from Self.com. I posted it earlier today with a picture of mine. I switched it up a little bit cause I don’t wanna go buy anything to make this cause I’m trying to save money and honestly the subbing worked out awesome cause it tasted awesome and it was a quick fix.
SNACK: Raw Broccoli with Lentil Hummus
I HATE raw broccoli. Ugh. Never had Lentils before but it basically looks like refried beans and essentially tastes like em too. I basically forced myself to eat this and it was ok. I didn’t finish it and I only cut up like half a head of broccoli.
DINNER: Apple, Salmon Salad
Couldn’t really tell if I was hungry cause I didn’t eat enough or I was just thinking I was hungry. But I do think I need to eat a little more protein or carbs with my dinner. I don’t think the salad was enough.
DESERT: Resse’s Peanut Butter Cup
WORKOUT: Nike Get Lean Workout, Day 6 Ab Calendar
My lunch today. Recipe idea from Self.com
I subbed spinach for basil and green beans for edamame. The tomatoes end up creating a little bit of a sauce with all their juices and the whole thing was just garlicky and delicious!
Took all of 20 minutes to make and mostly only cause it takes 15 min to cook pasta. I did all the sautéing while the pasta boiled and voila, awesome meal.
Deff making it again.
Day 4 - May 4, 2013
BREAKFAST: Granola cereal, vanilla almond milk, strawberry slices, green tea
LUNCH: Lean Gourmet Frozen Spaghetti with meat sauce
DINNER: Sushi. Candy. Soup. Everything. Omg. I just ruined all my progress. ): I’m restarting this shit tomorrow.
WORKOUT: I’m waking up at 630 am to go on a snorkel cruise. Cancel working out tonight. Ill just take it as my rest day. I’m hurting from the past 2 days. Major. Thank god this is my last day this week pulling a double.
It relatively early to make any comments on my progress so far but…
I have already noticed that I’m naturally choosing to eat more fruits and veggies which is way healthier then before where most of my fruit came in form of jamba smoothies once in a while and veggies were the tomatoes in my pasta sauce. Well not that bad but you get the point. I was lacking.
Also my muscles are killing me. So I must be doing something right!
Does anyone else use this app? I really like it. Pre made workouts. You can pick a level, play your music through the app, it times you and you can even schedule workouts through it and it’ll send you a reminder.
Day 3 - May 3, 2013
BREAKFAST: 1/2 orange, Greek yogurt, green tea
I’ve been working a lot and don’t wanna burn out or catch a cold so oranges for vitamin C! I like the fage brand of Greek yogurt cause the put a side of fruit purée stuff that kind of kills the soury taste of Greek yogurt. The Strawberry one is my fave but the Cherry/Pom one is good too. Good source of protein too for muscle recovery. I miss my sugary coffees but I like green tea too so it’s substituting my sugary caffeine fueled days and saving me money. Bonus!
LUNCH: Michalina’s Lean Gourmet Frozen Lasanga, Fresh Caprese salad
I’m not really sure how healthy these or any frozen pre- prepared meal is but it claims to be lean and has less then 5g fat and 300 calories. Plus these actually taste really good and are easier then making my lunch to take to work every single day. I added some of my leftover Caprese salad from Spaghetti dinner night for some freshness.
SNACK: 1/2 orange, handful of corn cereal
DINNER: Leftover Chicken Veggie Stir Fry with rice
DESSERT: Chocolate Mousse with Pistachios
Hard to resist free desserts when you work in a restaurant. Ruinnner. Lol.
WORKOUT: On my work break i did the Nike Fitness 30 min Fit & Lean workout. Last picture is me dying doing the Insanity fit test last night. Haha. I was suppose to do it again tonight but I got off at 11pm to be back at 8am and that’s just redic. I need sleep.
Just finished the fit test. Kill me now.
