“Somebody worked out this morning!”

Thats what a man at the gym said to me when I was leaving!!

Since I didn’t exercise yesterday, I decided to do something different and work out in the morning!  I went to gym bright and early and did the 5:45 cycle class! 

  • 60 minute Power Cycle Class.

Boy was that hard!!   I wore a grey t-shirt (my mistake) and it was soaked by the end of class!  I haven’t had a workout this good in a long, long time!! 

As much as I love oatmeal for breakfast, I am in the mood for a little change… so, I made some pumpkin oatmeal pancakes!  I ate two before class and I’m actually eating the last one as I type this up!

1/2 cup pumpkin, oats, 1/4 cup light silk, stevia, baking powder, and cinnamon!

The pancakes were really great and I hope they keep me full as long as oatmeal does.  The three pancakes came to be 238 calories, 10 grams of protein, and 11 grams of fiber.  I love adding pumpkin to oats because it really has a lot of fiber in it!

Taking a cycle class this morning was fun and challenging… I can tell today is going to be great 🙂

This afternoon’s workout:

  • 50 minute spin class
  • Free Weights

The cycle class was really, really good!  I loved the instructor so much that I am going to make an effort to go to all of her classes even if she only teaches two a week.  She made the class fly by and I felt challenged the entire time!  After working out, I was on my way home and found out that people were looking at our house.  Since they were there I couldn’t cook!  Instead of cooking, I got Sushi from Kabuto’s and brought it home later.

Cucumber Roll

‘Ultimate’ Veggie Roll

All the sushi!

Edamame that I steamed at home.

I love sushi 🙂

Oh, have any of you made your own sushi?  I want to try and make a healthier version at home but I’m a little intimidated!

Late Night Blogging

Sorry tonight’s dinner post is SO late!  I got wrapped up in some things and lost track of time…  here is what I had to eat five hours ago!  Before I get to dinner, workout was a 45 minute cycle class.

Lemon Chickpea Lentil Soup from Eat, Drink, and Be Vegan.  I left it thicker than the recipe called just so it could be a little heartier.  I also changed some ingredients around and used green lentils instead of red so the color came out a little odd.  The flavors were dead on though.

Veganomicon Black Bean Burger on a TJ Whole Wheat Bun with Spinach, Ketchup, and Mustard.

With carrots on the side, dinner was 478 calories, 27 grams of protein, and 20 grams of fiber.

While I was working away, I munched on whole grain Tostitos and my mom’s black bean and corn salsa.  I mindlessly ate and didn’t measure my food so I’m estimated an extra 250-300 calories of snacking there…  Sorry this post took so long to get up!

Homemade SourDough Bread!

I was going to go to the gym this afternoon so I threw together a quick snack for some energy:

Roasted Red Pepper Hummus, Carrots, and Grapes.

140 calories, 3 grams of protein, and 3 grams of fiber.

However, despite the gloomy weather, the temperature was perfect!  So, I laced up my shoes and went running!  It was great to run again but my ankle is hurting me and I have a weird knot on the outside of my ankle.  It’s really tender and my parents want to take me to urgent care (i’ve had it for three days now) 😦

  • 3 miles running in 25:20
  • Ab Work
  • Free Weights

After working out, I finally got to have a slice of sourdough bread!

I’ve never had sourdough bread before and this loaf is crunchy on the outside and chewy on the inside.  I think I am in love!

My slice was just 86 calories and 2 grams of protein!

Green Smoothie

For my workout today, I did a 60 minute cycle class.  The class was really challenging, I loved it!  Afterwards, I showered at the gym and then went out shopping for a bit.  I lost track of time so I had to whip up a smoothie for another ‘mini meal’

I’m a huge fan of green smoothies, they taste just as sweet as a fruit smoothie but pack that extra nutritional punch!  Today’s green smoothie came out very green!

Banana, strawberries, cantaloupe, spinach, plain Silk, and milled flax seeds.

This came in at 168 calories, 7 grams of protein, and 7 grams of fiber.  I am going to have to have a big dinner tonight since calories have been so weird today!  I’m not that hungry… maybe it was all the indulging this weekend?

Afternoon Recap

Wow, today kind of flew by!  I just got back from a cycle class and I’m starving (and soaking wet) so I’ll make this quick and recap everything!

For snack today, I made a Sun-Dried Tomato Hummus and served it with crisp veggies.

The hummus is made of sun dried tomatoes canned in oil (not too healthy), 1/4 cup silk yogurt, 1 tbs tahini, garlic, sea salt, and soaked garbanzo beans.  I served it with cucumbers, red peppers, and a carrot.

After snack, Kath asked me if I wanted to go on a walk so of course I had to go!  The weather is perfect and I got to show her the trail I run at!  It was really relaxing and fun 🙂  We ended up walking 2.5 miles together.

When I got home from walking, I looked at the clock and realized I could make it to the cycle class.  So, I grabbed my gym membership and headed out the door!  The class was tough but the teacher was a little too… enthusiastic.  Oh well, at least I got in a good sweat!

  • 2.5 mile walk with Kath
  • 45 minute cycle class

Time to shower and make dinner, I’m starving!
