I am writing this post, and then I’m off to take a hardcore Sweat Box class at my gym. It’s cold outside and I just ate a ton of cookies (hello, even more reason to go!), but I’m making it happen. Please ask me if I went as soon as you read this :)

Knowing that I will be going to Sweat Box tonight, I wanted to do some yoga during lunch. Unfortunately, my gym moved the Monday lunch time yoga to Wednesday with no notice (they just changed the schedule!). So what did I do? I went home and did some on demand yoga from Exercise TV (Comcast on demand). If you haven’t tried on demand workouts from your cable company, give them a go. A lot of them are really great! 😀


2 (frozen) banana multi-grain waffles with peanut butter and 1/2 apple


This was the last fruit we had in the house. We are in desperate need of a trip to the grocery store!



I was going to buy lunch since we had nothing in the house, but since I ended up at home, I decided to get creative with whatever we had. I found a little piece of pizza dough in the fridge, an open can of diced tomatoes, an open can of chickpeas and some greens. Voila – a grilled flatbread pizza with mixed greens, chickpeas, tomatoes and Goddess dressing was born!


I was pretty proud of my creation! 😎


I ate it like a giant doughy wrap. Mmm…


Some overindulging on cookies last night meant that I wasn’t really hungry for snacks all day today. I did eat an almond stuffed medjool date (unpictured – the pic came out super blurry) at some point in the afternoon. This brings me to…


Since I am going to Sweat Box tonight (see how I’m saying I’m going… not “hope to go.” Yeah, I’m so going!! 😆 ), dinner was super early (Adam was going to a Bruins game tonight, so it worked out perfectly). I followed this recipe for stuffed peppers, subbing quinoa for brown rice (much quicker cooking!) and omitting the onions.


Bella’s pictures are so much prettier. She’s a genius with a camera 😀 The peppers were pretty yummy. Adam especially enjoyed them since he has a mild obsession with black beans. This is how I get my man to eat vegetarian dinners once in a while. The cheese helps too 😉


And then the cookie monster in me came out. I plopped myself on the couch with the giant tupperware container of the leftover cookies. Bad, bad idea. Here are a few of the whole wheat peanut butter M&M cookies, just for the visual. I definitely ate a lot more than these 2 (can’t tell you how many, because I didn’t count! Maybe 5?). These are leaving my house tomorrow. No more temptation!! 👿


No more eating for the rest of the night. I’m off to get ready for Sweat Box. Weeeee :mrgreen:

    So, did you go?

    I love to sneak stuffed peppers into my meal planning — they taste meaty, so the carnivorous husband is happy.

  • #7 - Elina

    I went, I went!! 😀 😀 My stomach wasn’t happy with me, but I still had a great workout AND I did another 1.5 miles on the treadmill after the class. Best workout I’ve had in weeks. Yay! You guys rock!!

  • #8 - Jesse

    I really need to get my some of those frozen waffles. They just look so much more BREAKFAST than a sandwich thin…

  • #9 - Leslie

    That wrap looks amazing! I’d pay for that in a restaurant!!

  • #10 - Shannon

    Good for you for going. I am horrible about exercise in the evening. All I want to do is come home and stay home! Add in a little over indulgence and I would be hard pressed to go out to Sweat Box! Good for you :)

  • #11 - Diana @ frontyardfoodie

    You are so adorable! I’m glad you got your workout and were able to eat so much yum yums!

    Another great way to make vegetarian meals for the hubs is to do massive skillets with so many different things that you hardly notice there’s no meat (I’m vegan so I try to do stuff like that all the time for the hubs). Pour it over rice or potatoes and BAM! It’s a tasty mess!

    So glad you went, now back to reading the rest of the entry.

    Good for you for going 😉

    Your veggie dinner looks good. I’ve slowly been able to get Matt to eat the occasional veggie meal, but it’s been tricky. How does Adam feel about tofu?

  • #14 - Elina

    Shannon – it’s definitely tough for me to go to the gym once I’m home. I have been looking forward to that class for days though, so that helped a lot 😀

    Diana – great ideas!!

    Lara – Adam is a tofu convert now. He doesn’t even blink when I say that tofu is for dinner. He’s even told some of his friends that it’s good and that they should try it with a good sauce, etc. Yay 😀

  • #15 - Emily

    I totally forgot about stuffed peppers! Must make those soon!

    Glad you enjoyed the class! 😀

  • #16 - Mimi (Damn the Freshman 15)

    I rationalize going to the gym when I don’t feel like it with the thought that I’m going to be irritated with myself the rest of the day. It works!
