Rolled out of bed a little later than I’d wanted (didn’t get to stop and have my fasting blood work done) but made it to work on time. 🙂
It was rainy/cloudy, and my bed was the perfect temperature. Too much temptation!
Citrucel on the way to work – 7:45 a.m.
Breakfast – 8:30 a.m.
I was starving this morning, but was excited for my breakfast: Dannon Greek Yogurt w/ Honey, banana, peanut butter puffins
(Supah-sweet breakfast! LOL)
I ate them individually rather than mixing: yogurt, banana, then puffins. Yum, and filling too!
I’d never had the Dannon greek yogurt – it was okay…but I think I just don’t like yogurt with honey in it. It isn’t my thing.
At 10:30 I decided to take a break and walk 4 blocks to the post office (we needed stamps at home). It was humid, but nice to get out of the office for a bit!
When I got back I had a small snack…
Snack – 10:45 a.m.
1/3 of this ThinkThin bar. I had a coupon for it so I thought I’d give it a go…but eh. It’s a little too protein-bar-processy tasting for me, I think. I won’t be finishing it.
Lunch – 12:00 p.m.
Tuna salad (relish – we’re out of celery!, onion, salt, pepper, tuna, and greek yogurt) with whole wheat baked crackers (I love these things….3 ingredients!) and some veggies for crunch (peppers, carrots, tomatoes)
I love albacore tuna the best, but since there are so many warnings about it, when I make my tuna salad I mix one can of albacore and one can of chunk light together….I like to think it minimizes the risk. LOL It makes enough for 2 lunches, as well!
Snack – 1:45 p.m.
Obviously didn’t pack enough for lunch, and I discovered I had grapes in the work fridge. Grapes were then consumed. 🙂
Snack – 3:45 p.m.
I was insanely hungry by the time snack time rolled around. Definitely needed more for lunch today!
peanut butter + low-sugar strawberry jam on whole grain
Exercise – 4:45 p.m.
15 minutes warm-up on the stationary bike
I haven’t had time to look into my next foray after the Oxygen full body workout, so my plan was to finish out the week with it.
For something a little different I went with 3 sets of endurance reps (15 per set) with a lighter weight. I also did the sets 2 exercises each before moving onto the next exercise, instead of moving through the circuit like I had been.
The problem? I got charlie horses in my knees on my last set of pile squats.
Man does that hurt!!!
So much so I dropped the rest of my lower body exercises for today, and am sitting here with ice packs on my knees.
I’m a mess. LOL

|Bent Over Row||10 lb dumbbells||3 x 15|

Note the temper tantrum about not being able to do legs there at the end with the hip exercises. LOL
1h10m @ the gym = 430 calories burned
Headed home and managed to walk the pup before my knees froze up on me
Dinner – 7:45 p.m.
Grilled bbq boneless pork ribs, jasmine rice, grilled corn on the cob with herbs and a little real buttah
Can you find the ‘dirty dozen’ in an organic alternative in your town?
I can’t. Grapes, strawberries, peaches, bell peppers, celery, nectarines, cherries, and pears, are nowhere to be found in an organic option. It makes me sad – as the hubs and I talk about children I’d really love to limit my pesticide intake, but when I can’t even get those foods pesticide free…what gives?!
And naturally, they’re all the most delicious fruits and whatnot. 😦
