A Job Well Done

So, I was in the kitchen A LOT yesterday. First off, I made a cake. But I didn’t eat any of it! Why, you ask? Because I made it for someone else. It was a thank you to a family friend. According to them, it was delicious! I was a little unsure on how it would turn out since the recommended bake time did not seem long enough. So I can’t show you the inside of the cake but I can show you the outside!

Chocolate Chip Cake

I can attest that the batter and the frosting were delicious! It’s a Chocolate Chip Cake recipe that I found on Pinterest. It was easy to make and creative! I don’t know why I’ve never thought to put chocolate chips into the batter before. Someday I’ll make it for myself.

Lunch was actually made by Daniel. He cooked up some Swai on the stove and some noodles and veggies.

Swai and noodles

He cooked the Swai in coconut oil and then added teriyaki and soy sauce for flavor. Not bad! It was actually pretty filling so I only ate half of my Swai filet.

I didn’t get motivated to workout until later in the evening when I went for a 2 mile run. Daniel was out so I went without him. Once I got back I was starving so I made an easy egg and veggie dish. The photo turned out bad but it was just 3 scrambled eggs, sautéed spinach, green pepper, and Roma tomato, with a little mango salsa on top. I’m kind of a lot of obsessed with the mango salsa. It’s the Private Selection brand. It’s amazing. I could eat it at every meal.

When Daniel got home I guess he had been wanting me to wait for him to go running so I agreed to go out for another 2 mile run with him. It was pretty easy to run the 4 miles when I had a little break in between.  We talked about how we should start running 2 miles in the morning and 2 miles at night but I think it’d be easier to get it over with all at once. Plus, I would need two showers a day for that. I sweat a lot!

Later that night I got a hankering to make a sweet but healthy dessert. There are a lot of suggestions out there on how to make one ingredient ice cream using bananas so I thought I’d give it a try. I’ll be back with another post on that later. Basically, it’s awesome and everyone should try it!

Here’s the rest of my meals:

Meal Food Calories
Lunch Swai and nooddles 250
fruit smoothie 220
Snack Fiber One Peanut Butter Brownie 90
Dinner Egg, spinach, roma tomato, green pepper, mango salsa 350
Chex Mix 170
Dessert Frozen Banana Ice Cream 55
Total 1135

For running 4 miles and staying under calories, I’d say that’s a job well done!
