Happy Monday everybody! Today was actually a really nice day of work. My kids were well-behaved and we got more done than usual (although still not as much as I would like!).
I started my morning with an Apricot Almond KIND Bar, my fav.
A walked me to my train so I was in a big bliss cloud for most of the ride!
During lunch I was busy setting up my SmartBoard and I didn’t get a chance to eat anything 😦 We had a faculty meeting after school, but I did manage to snag my baggie of green grapes before I went to that.
After the meeting I stayed to clean up my room and call parents so I ended up not getting home until after 6:30! I organized some things and cooked dinner while I waited for House to begin. I ate this yogurt when I got home to make up for no lunch.
Wallabyis a brand of Australian organic yogurt. Nonfat Strawberry Guava was pretty impressive, I love the look of the containers too. I also ate at least two bites of A’s junk food (pizza and a cupcake).
For dinner I tried out this new preseasoned tofu from More Than Tofu, in peanut ginger.
I sliced it and baked it for 20minutes while I made a side using this stuff:
Heat over low heat in a small pan; 1can seasoned greens + 1/4C blue cheese crumbles + 1/4 unsweetened dried blueberries = Blue Blue Greens.
I ate the entire package of tofu! (360calories)
It said that there were 4 (90cal) servings but that seemed a little skimpy to me, although half a package would work if you’re not super hungry. I made a sauce for the side out of stir fry sauce, Chipolte Tabasco, rice vinegar, and honey pb.
Everything was hella yummy!
After House (amazing!) I headed to the gym; I’m proud of myself for making it two days in a row. I did 15minutes on the elliptical at level 10 and 15minutes on the stepmill at level 7. I ended with 5minutes of abs/stretching on the mats. I had a great work out but the bonehead on the machine next to the mats would not stop grunting! I get that you might struggle at the end of a set but if you are screaming straight through 10+minutes of weights you are doing something wrong! Even worse was the fact that he kept yelling at himself, berating himself anytime he stopped. I felt bad for him because it was clear he had some issues but please live out your body issues quietly 🙂
A met me for the walk home and we took a walk around the neighborhood for funsies. I might have felt the need to go back to Tea Lounge to buy the gigantic Oreo cupcake I was drooling over earlier in the day.
I also might have scraped off all the frosting and thrown the cupcake away [carnage].
I am fully aware that a. this is wasteful and b. it pretty much undid any calories I burned at the gym, but damn it I like cupcakes! Belly full, I’m off to take a quick shower and snuggle into bed, night!
How do you feel about grunters at the gym? What is the thing that annoys you while working out?
