Chopsticks are cool

February 12th, 2009 · 13 Comments · breakfast, scallops, snacks, tofu

Oh man, I’m totally exhausted for some reason.  Today was another good day, though :)  Getting all of your comments on my last post made me so happy because it just reminded me throughout the day of how great yesterday was.  Today was good too, except for the weather.  Man it got cold again!  I walked home and almost froze to death.  Ok, I may be slightly exaggerating 😆

Sorry, I’m making this quick.  It’s been a really long day and I’m about to pass out.  The food was good though and so was my workout.  Love it!


Leftovers from yesterday were absolutely amazing, and I’m really tempted to call them the best meal of the day.  The sauce is good stuff!  I think it even looks prettier today :)  I ate my lunch with chopstick to really feel like I’m eating asian food… and it’s also kind of fun to eat with chopsticks 😀

Ok ok, but because you’ve already seen this, I’ll also add a super delicious breakfast to my best meal of the day.  Honestly I couldn’t chose between the 2 meals.  I started eating breakfast at home because this way I get to eat exactly what I crave that very moment instead of what I pre-pack the night before, and I’m really loving it!  So far the breakfasts also held me over just as long.  Not sure if this will become my new thing, but it’s been definitely fun the last few days :)  Anyways, breakfast was a Food for Life english muffin with Barney Butter and cherry preserve + a medium banana and a large coffee.  So delicious!

lemon/butter scallops, ww couscous + asparagus

Sorry dinner is so ugly.  I needed to make something super quick and despite being totally unphotogenic, this actually came out pretty delicious.

Peach chobani

I was really trying to have the chobs as my dessert, but who was I kidding… I need chocolate for that :)  So I had 1/2 serving of my favorite trail mix ever! 😀

1/2 serving TJ's nutty american trek mix

Total calories for the day: ~ 1750 (I had to guesstimate for the office treat so I’m not 100% sure)


I started with an abs class (which I was late to so I only did about 8 minutes), then took a 40 minute spin class, followed by 5 minutes of stretching and 20 minutes on the elliptical.  I really wanted to do another 15 minutes of the stationary bike but my ipod battery died so I took it as a sign that I’ve had enough and left.  It was still a great workout!  Workout stats:

  • Duration: 1:09 (+ 5 minutes of stretching)
  • Calories burnt: 587 (15% fat)
  • Ave HR: 146; Max HR: 172


I’ve been super busy at work and decided to ban blog reading during office hours.  It just got bad, sneaking in peaks here and there.  So I am reading when I get home, just not commenting as much.  Sorry if you haven’t heard from me… I promise I’m reading :)

All right, I’m off.  Seriously my eye lids feel so heavy right now…
