The One with the “Horse”

Did you notice?  I totally forgot to do a Friends-style title on my evening post last night.  I was too busy sulking about being alone again!!  waaaaahhhhhhh. :(

Day One – Back on the Horse – SUCCESS!  (not that I’ve ever actually been on the horse, but it seems a good title for my current plan…lol)

Coffeeeeee with egg noggy goodness


Breakfast: Applesauce Oats


In the pot: 1/2 cup unsweetened vanilla Almond Breeze, 1/2 cup water, 1/2 cup oats, Mott’s unsweetened apple sauce cup, cinnamon, a few raisins & a handful of Honeycrisp apple chunks.

Topped with a little leftover apple sauce, apple chunks, and a sprinkle of brown sugar.


LunchBejewelled salad!  and turkey & cheese quesadilla!


Salad: mixed baby lettuces, sliced beet, pomegranate bits, honey, EVOO and s&p.


Quesadilla:  lean deli turkey & dill havarti on a small ancient grains tortilla…melty and smooooshed together.  Yum!


Afternoon pick me up: skim milk and a couple of Love Cookies


Post-gym snackeroo:  hummus with last baguette slice and FSTG chips (turns out I like these chips with hummus, just not with salsa!)

Din-Dinroasted zucchini & carrots with maple BBQ salmon

025 028

Zucchini and carrots simply tossed with EVOO, salt, pepper, and garlic powder.


I love healthy comfort food!  Deeeeeelish.


Ran 2 miles on the treadmill in about 22 minutes.  This included 3 minute walking warm-up and 2 minute cool down.  Ran 4:1 intervals.  I have to ask Amy if we are supposed to be running the full 5km, or just 20 minutes?    The gym was INSANELY busy tonight so I couldn’t have kept my treadmill any longer anyway…stupid time constraints!

Also added some moves to make my legs like jello…

  • squats, plie squats, one-legged squats, lunges, reverse lunges, wall sit
  • crunches, reverse crunches, bicycle crunches, planks, back extensions

Much stretching ensued. Then my stupid ice pack had to make an appearance for my stupid neck pain.  Stupid


Now I think it’s tea time. Wow, 10:00 and I’m all done everything for the evening.  Crazy talk.  Whatever shall I do with myself?

Maybe actually go to bed early!  bwahahahahaha :)

I wanted to get some nog for my coffee when I went shopping today, but stupidstore doesn't have any yet. Jerks. :(

I wouldn't have thought to put apple sauce in oatmeal, but that sounds (and looks!) delicious. I know what I'm having for breakkie tomorrow :)

That salad sounds great! I may have to try that.

I am so craving a quesadilla now!

Hmmm Maybe I'm not cut out for food blogging. My meals are so boring compared to yours. Wow! I have some lessons to learn from you (especially the cooking for one part!)

Ooops! I still have your blog listed as Health Habits - the good bad, and the ugly. Seriously didn't mean to steal your title! Forgive me?

I love you food pics so much, you may actually be revolutionizing my blog. :) Maybe I'll even go buy myself a new Starbucks mug just to start myself off on the right foot.

Love the salad with the beets. Lurve beets!

Anon: I can't take credit for the salmon. I buy it that way at SuperStore then just bake it on a foil lined cookie sheet. :)
