Food Coma…

Ok, I think I’m just getting old and senile because I’m having a hard time remembering everything I eat. I should probably just write it down instead of trying to remember it the next day.

Breakfast: I started out with 3 strawberry muffins that I made the night before and I enjoyed them while in class. I’ve started to not eat breakfast until after I leave the house. I’m not a morning person so it’s hard to wake up early enough to give myself enough time to eat breakfast before I leave. That’s why I’ve been having a lot of smoothies for breakfast lately. And now muffins.

Lunch: Leftover breaded tilapia, rice, and asparagus!

In the afternoon I was craving something sweet and I’m pretty sure I ate another muffin, and some marshmallows with semi-sweet chocolate chips.

It took me a while to get into the mood of working out and even when I did it didn’t go very well. I just didn’t have the energy or the motivation.  I followed more Blogilates videos but they were challenging and I didn’t make it to the last one for the day. The day focused on Arms & Abs.

Dinner: Daniel and I enjoyed 50 cent tacos again at the local bar & grill, Porter’s. I don’t think I’ve had them since the fall semester. They were delicious! They are simple beef tacos with lettuce, cheese, and salsa. I also ordered a small cup of queso but shared it with Daniel. It’s only about 2 oz probably.

I think that’s all I ate? Probably more strawberry muffins. Those things are addictive!

I’m in a food coma right now and it’s late on a Friday night so it’s time to snuggle with my man and go to bed. He’s watching a documentary on Bobby Fischer right now. Nerd.

Have a good night!

What I Ate Wednesday, Told On Thursday

I can’t believe it’s already Thursday. This week is flying by! I don’t really have big plans for the weekend but I’m looking forward to relaxing. And maybe doing some homework/studying. And exercising! Ok, it won’t be that relaxing, but I won’t have any obligations =)

Yesterday went… okay for me. I didn’t get around to exercising though. I got so lazy! Here’s what I ate:

Breakfast: I was running late for work (shocker) so I stopped by the Starbucks drive-thru for a quick meal. I actually resisted getting a chai latte, but I ordered the Spinach Roasted Tomato, Feta & Egg White Wrap. It’s so tasty and filling. I can’t get enough of them.

Lunch: I packed some strawberries, cantaloupe, and leftover veggie pasta for my lunch. It didn’t fill me up very much though since there wasn’t a lot of pasta left.

As soon as I got home I snacked on a rice cake with cinnamon flavored laughing cow cheese wedge. And then I had one of these:

Man, I just love my photography. HA! So what is it? Well, it’s a Mini Lemon Cup from Savory Lotus! Check out the recipe and more appealing photos on her site! They’re vegan, and sooooo yummy! It calls for macadamia butter but I made mine with almond butter and I think they turned out pretty good (just a little darker color). I’ve been snacking on them for over a month (they freeze really well). Here’s another photo to give you a better idea.

Dinner: We got fancy with some Panko breaded tilapia fillets, rice, and roasted asparagus in coconut oil. Oh yeah.

I added a few drops of lemon juice to the fish and little soy sauce to the rice. I had forgotten how much I love fish! I’ve been having it a lot lately.

Dessert: I was craving a baked good and we have a lot of strawberries right now so I decided to make strawberry muffins. I used this recipe from allrecipes.com. They were really easy to make. The only thing I changed was using almond milk in place of cow’s milk. We have canola oil we need to get rid of so I used that, but if you have coconut oil you should try that instead. Just warm it in the microwave for a few seconds before mixing and it should be good to go.

In the evening we went to watch a local version of the Last Comic Standing contest. We got there halfway through but there were some really funny guys, and ladies! Only one female made it through the elimination though. I may go back next week to see more of round 1. There were so many comedians that they had to split the first round into two different nights. Most of the jokes were pretty hilarious and highly inappropriate–aren’t those the best kind?

The show was held at a nearby bar that Daniel and I can easily walk to but some friends picked us up on their way. Once the show was over they wanted to stay out later than us so we walked back. To get back home we always have to walk by Burger King — and I was craving it hardcore. Luckily Daniel was there to talk me out of it. Instead, when we got home I had a bowl of rice crispy cereal and coconut milk. Not as satisfying but it took away the hunger.

Anybody get some good workouts in? Or see an awesome comedy show? Speaking of comedy, Aziz Ansari is coming to Kansas State University April 23rd and I am soooo there! Just gotta buy them tickets!
