What a busy day, from the second I got up to go to the gym! til just sitting down now. I got up when my alarm went off, which never happens! I went to the gym where I did a 45 minute bike ride for just under 9 miles, all while reading so it went fast!
Work was non-stop, I did manage to eat at my desk though!
Breakfast was spicy oats ala Allison! Although I just looked at hers and realized hers are WAY spicier than mine – so I give you my weak version with 1 fried egg and two pieces of bacon: Breakfast comes in at 300 calories, 13 fat, 16 protein, 27 carbs and 4 fiber.
Although I had to reheat it twice before finishing it! When I knew I could make a break for it, I brought one of the DVD’s with me from the library. This one was a balance ball one:
That’s kind of what I look like! Ha! So I just put it in the dvd and it says “workout, express workout, extra abs.” So I picked “workout.” Guess what? It was 50 minutes long!! But I loved it! It was cardio and strength – basically core. Just when I thought I couldn’t go on, we’d do a stretch on the ball and go back at it. I was one sweaty mess after that! But I was energized for my afternoon of work!
Lunch was a slice of pumpernickel bread, 2 ounces deli roast beef, 1 ounce cheese (really melty!), 1 cup roasted pepper soup and a side salad: Lunch comes in at 419 aloires, 20 fat, 27 protein, 27 carbs, 6 fiber.
So dinner tonight was a mix between an Eating Well and 30 Minute Meal recipe. I combined them, but I haven’t figured out the whole recipe yet (that will be another post with specifics) but I deconstructed mine to figure out the calories:
- 4 ounces of scallops
- 7 ounces cooked whole wheat pasta
- 1 slice of cooked bacon, crumbled
- a pinch of Parmesan cheese
- 1 tsp. olive oil in the saute
465 calories, 10 fat, 39 protein, 56 carbs, 5.8 fiber (this is just a close estimate – it may be a bit more, but with my exercise today, I am not going to worry about it!)
I cooked three pieces of bacon until crisp, removed to paper towel. I used a paper towel to remove most of the oil, then sautéed 2 tsp. minced garlic for a couple minutes, then added 1/2 cup vegetable broth. On the side I had 1 cup of water steeped with saffron, which I tossed in with the cooked pasta. I tempered 1 egg yolk in 1/2 cup of the pasta water and added that at the end when I combined everything. I left the bacon out so I could keep that to a minimum on my dish, and just sprinkled 1 piece on top.
I thought it was really good, especially since I added crushed red pepper to my plate!

Now I am about to chillax! Hope everyone had a good day – for the next week and a half work is really going to be busy, so I’ll probably only post at the end of the day. See you tomorrow night! 😀
