This is a test, I finally (sorta) figured out how to get Windows Live Writer working. I have NO clue how to use it, but I’m hoping I’ll catch on quick…so far, it’s pretty cool!
Hooray, my K-love is back home. This morning was just as lazy as yesterday, but Kyle joined me…we spent the morning eager for football to start. I love play-offs.
I got new slippers for x-mas, so now we are twins (hehe).
Some soy bacon to start. Salty and delish.
Followed by more “bacon” and egg beaters with vegan parmesan “cheese” on top.
It was well past noon by the time I had this, and the weirdest part – I wasn’t really even hungry…I just ate because we were heading out to do errands and I knew I should have something before leaving the house.
We got home just in time for kick off to the Eagles game. Go philly! I snacked on 3 dried pineapple rings during the first half. These are so sugary, I love ’em…like dessert, but you can pretend they are healthy since they are technically fruit!
With my blood glucose level sky high, I decided to head to the gym to watch the second half of the game while running. The gym was kinda crowded, so I had to nix the tread mill plan, and instead opted for the elliptical on a really high level. After an hour I stretched and did some arm exercises, follwed by 3 seconds of abs. My stomach started growling, so I decided to call it a day.
The roll on the left is a macro roll with organic wild rice, organic brown rice, organic sweet rice, toasted nori, daikon, carrots, tofu, kale, agave syrup, apple cider vinegar, and sesame oil (all organic).
The roll on the right is a vegan roll with organic brown rice, organic sweet rice, kale, texturized vegetable protein, carrots, toasted nori, soy beans, agave syrup, apple cider vinegar, and sesame oil (all organic).
I was still a little bit hungry, though, so I had half of another vegan roll. 🙂
Right after I put the other half of the roll away, I got it back out and finished it too…haha, who was I kidding? How could I ever eat half a roll??
I am so happy to have today off of work. I love weekends, especially NFL play-off weekends, since there are games on Saturday AND Sunday. I love sleeping in, and being lazy and not feeling remotely guilty about it. Plus, I got some wonderful mail today, too.
Stonyfield responded to an email I sent them with some goodies (coupons) for my fave products. Their O’soy yog is THE best, but I can never find it anywhere, so hopefully they contacted some local markets to get more of their goodies stocked. The other mail was a postcard from Self mag, telling me I got a gift of a year long subscription (thanks Laura)!!
Totally an amazing Saturday and I haven’t even had coffee yet!
Here’s my cup of joe. I was too lazy to make the milk foamy. Hey, it’s the weekend! I’m out of soy milk, so this was a cafe au “lactaid.”
So creamy and delicious. Nothing else compares.
The fruit in the yogurt got me craving sweets, so I had a plate of strawberries and mango slices.
Followed my some dates….
After my sugar load, I was REALLY excited to finally get to the gym – it’s been almost 5 days since my last work out, and I am WAY too much of a ball of energy to go that long without releasing some of it. I layered up for the brrr and made my way to NYSC. I was pumped. I had my new Self mag (gracias to my sis for my 2009 subscription), the NFL wild card play-offs were on, and the gym wasn’t too full…the perfect set up for a great work out sesh! I started on the elliptical, while rocking out to Lady GaGa. Her cd is PERF for cardio, I’m obsessed.
For some reason, I wasn’t that hungry (maybe since I had lunch SO late?), so I decided to kinda snack the night away…
Brocc, carrots, and cauliflower…
SABRA! I’m such a wuss, I only get the classic flavor. But, should I really branch out when I love this one so much? I mean, I love it!
I obviously gobbed the hummus on this GN veggie burger, as well. These are still my fave veggie burgers, granted my trials haven’t been too extensive, but still.
Imagine’s Organic Creamy Corn Soup.
Their soups are fantastic!! Winter just makes me crave soup around the clock, so it’s good to have these stocked at all times. Carrot and butternut squash are also great flavors.
I had a mug of my new tea after dinner. I loved the TJ’s spiced chai that my parents had, but I was too lazy to head all the way downtown to Union Square…so we will see how the “Good Earth” chai tea compares.
Does the sandwich looks familiar? I need a little variety in my work lunches, but I love smart deli “turkey” meat so if it aint broke…
I also had an apple, superfood odwalla bar, and a baggie full of mixed dried fruit.
I like how my nail polish matches 🙂 Purrrrty.
Work was smooth sailing. Not much to say other than that. Since the unit was only partially open (all of pod B is closed) there were 3 nurses for 7 patients! Talk about a nice shift. There aren’t any cases until Monday, so my boss gave me the entire weekend off!!!!!!!
When I got home I portioned out half into a big bowl…then added some honey mustard dressing with balsamic vinegar.
There’s nothing like the blanket of white snow covering the ground to symbolize the clean slate that today represents. Welcome 2009. I love you already. Fresh starts are always a good thing.
Today started bright and early with a 5 am wake-up call for work. I packed my lunch the night before, which included the usual smart deli sammie, apple, mix of raisin/dried cranberries, plus odwalla bar.
Look what Santa left for me!! Clearly my mom (errr…santa) knows me well. This will last me quite a while – yay!!
On the way to work I was bummed to find that both Starbucks and Bruno’s were opening late since it was New Year’s Day. Whatever will I do?! No worries, I’m quick on my feet…I got a mediocre coffee at a little market and bought a soy milk to get the day off right.
I had my odwalla berries gomega in the AM, and got away for lunch around 1 pm. Even though it was 16 degrees outside, I still made it to Starbucks (Bruno’s was closed all day). I got a TON of Sbuck’s gift cards for x-mas so it was free 🙂 I got a short coffee and added vanilla soymilk. Perfect sando go-with. I headed back to work with a nice little caffeine boost. Later in the PM I had the rest of the dried fruit and the apple, which got me through the rest of the shift quite nicely. The day was a bit slow, so when 7 rolled around, I was bouncing off the walls. I wish it were warmer out, I really feel like I need to exercise. Grrrr…snow sucks. So much pent up energy. My BF needs to get back home, stat.

The consistency was a bit weird, but the flavor was good, although the delish EZEKIEL bun was so warm and toasty that basically anything could have been between it and I would have loved it. And that’s not even mentioning the Sabra-licious hummus I lathered on each muffin 🙂
