Sleepyhead June 4, 2009

Good morning my dears!

Sorry for the late post – this gal was one sleepyhead last night.  But may I start at the beginning…

Yesterday, yours truly woke her buns up at 5am and made it to 5:30am Vinyasa Flow with yoga diva Deb just in time.  However, I’m not going to lie, it was NOT the best feeling yoga class I’ve had.  I don’t know if it made a difference, but I didn’t have a snack before I went.  The whole class, I was tired, fatigued and super tight.  However, by the end, I did feel better for going and woo – we did some revolved pyramids that I am still feeling this morning!

When I got home from yoga, I devoured a bowl of TJ’s blueberry muesli with skim milk as well as a naner with some good ol’ raw almond butter…

Mid-morning, I snacked on another naner with raw almond butter (the choices are slim pickins!).  However, I got some great feedback on the PB/AB in a bag trick, so I thought I would show you some of the fun decorating you can do by putting any nut butter in a bag, cutting the tip and piping it out like a frosting bag.  Here I go (I was clearly working REALLY hard at work:))…

A heart <3…

My attempt at a star (key word being attempt)…

And a fun, random design…

The naner/AB combo kept me full for awhile, so I ventured off on a nice 1/2 hour walk at noon and enjoyed some lunch upon my return.  I had some pretzels, black bean salsa (black beans, tomato, onion, green pepper, cumin, garlic powder, drizzle EVOO, lime juice & S+P) as well as a little veggie wrap (leftovers from a work luncheon).

I couldn’t resist a small handful of my faves…

Lunch held me over pretty well, so late afternoon, I munched on some carrots as I finished up work for the day.

After work, a friend and I went apartment hunting!  Yes!  If all goes according to plan, I will hopefully find a super cute apartment here in the next month.  My three basic requirements are, (a) cheap, (b) super cute and (c) in a safe neighborhood.  If you can’t tell, I don’t really have too high of standards, haha!  We did find some good prospects, so I have lots of calling and appointment scheduling on my hands for next week.

Dinner was quick, cheap and oh so delicious: CHIPOTLE!  By the way, I found this awesome Chipotle Nutrition Facts Calculator online – I don’t know how accurate it is, but I figure it’s a better guesstimate than my own.  Here is my burrito bowl concoction:

1/2 cup cilantro rice
steak
mild salsa
fajita veggies
lettuce
guacamole

According to Mr. Calculator, that will be about 515 calories, 23 grams of fat (5 grams saturated), 7 grams of fiber and 36 grams of protein.  I will take that!

Honestly, I do not eat a lot of red meat at all.  Normally, my bowl is the exact same as this one minus the steak and plus the black beans.  However, I’ve been feeling a bit lethargic and tired this week, and after some thinking, I think I might be a little low on iron, hence the steak option.  I did feel better afterwards, especially because I also treated myself to this…

Knowing I had a big ol’ game of late beach volleyball coming up, I had a small Mocha Hazelnut Latte made with soy milk.  I had 1/2 the amount of chocolate & syrup, and it was delicious!  My friend got the Turtle Cake for dessert, and I’m not going to lie, I made a little dent in that piece of cake as well :).

Volleyball was uber-fun as always last night, even though we lost all 3 games again.  Our record may be 1-8, but we did make some major teamwork/communication/skill improvements last night.  I wouldn’t be surprised if we made like the best comeback ever to win the whole thing…

This morning, I whipped out the blender to make a green monster.  I’ve been craving these buggers!

 1 cup Oat Dream oat milk
1 banana
1 cup tropical frozen fruit (bananas, peaches, mango & pineapple)
1 1/2 cups spinach

Along with some Triscuits with almond butter and a drizzle of honey, twas’ a delicious meal!  Now, I am at work and need get going doing some actual work, haha! 

Hope you all have a fabulous day today!
