I was so tired last night that I flopped into bed without even a thought of blogging.  I’m feeling much more energized today, but I’ll get to that later.

Yesterday morning, I ate a Key Lime Larabar for my train breakfast.


Lunch was a yummy assortment:  coconut water with passion fruit,


four slices of fakin’ bacon,


and leftover roasted veggies.


I headed straight home from school, stopping to wander aimlessly around Barnes and Nobel.

For dinner I tried some new things as well, including these squash from Trader Joes.


This is where the real flopping began.  They are cute, and healthy, but sort of squishy and unpleasing.


I ate them, and I’ll eat the leftovers today, but I’m not happy about it.  I dipped them into some sweet and sour sauce but it didn’t really help.


The other item on the place is a tofu scramble with sliced baby portabellas.  You’ll notice I’m not giving a recipe.  Yeah.  I ate one bite and then passed my plate to A who inexplicably loved it.  They just felt too unhealthy, a much better choice of dinner was Newman’s Os 2×3,


and a big bowl of popcorn.


I topped the ‘corn with melted SmartBalance because I realized it was vegan and that was exciting.  I’m sure the future RD in me (hopefully, someday) should cringe at this dinner, but it made me really happy 🙂

Saturday morning got a much healthier start.  I put my name on a list for a free Pilates reformer demo a while ago and I finally got my e-mail this week.  So I started my morning with a 30minute private session.  The moves are very similar to floor work, but using the machine really made me focus on the alignment of my body.  I really enjoyed it and if I somehow come across some $$ I’m thinking of signing up for a few sessions.  I ended my workout with 5minutes of hills walking on the treadmill.

When I got home I made a tasty, tasty bowl of cereal.


1C PB Puffins with a few blackberries and small sliced plum.

I am (super excited about) going to the blogger meet up tonight so I’ve got a busy day ahead of me.  Hopefully I will be back here for lunch though, Happy Saturdaying!

Have you ever taken a Pilates class (mat OR reformer)?  If you’ve tried both, which did you prefer.
