Hump Day

21 05 2009


Run! I was intending to do 4 miles but I ended up going to 7 because I will be golfing this weekend and just might be too tired for a good run- wanted to take advantage while I could ya know!?

Max HR: 184
Min HR: 160
Distance: 7.08 miles
Time: 58 minutes 32 sec
Kcal: 698

Oh goodness, Again!
The professor is allowing me to take the exam on Tuesday instead of TOMORROW! Thank goodness because I am STILL not registered for the course, despite having gone through the registration process three times for it. I finally went in and just made the lady register me right there. I went over to the accounting office, and apparently they do not have anything indicating I took out that loan that was dealt with on monday.
ay yae yae.

Aside from that, I managed another long lecture and studying for my exam.

I also got through my to do lists of shopping, prepping for this weekend, emails etc.

Shawn Johnson won DWTS! Good for her.

I now have all the ingredients for my cooking tomorrow and this weekend! I will be making “French Toast Casserole” and “Biscuit Sausage Pie” for two breakfasts. Today,  I made my own version of Mini Chocolate Banana Cupcakes to take this weekend! I used the recent BSI Winner recipe but used my own chocolate fudgy sauce on top.

Last Night Snack:
1 BLOG 005 I had about 1 serving ( 120 kcal) , it wasn’t really flavorful so I would have definitely preferred air popped but don’t have the seeds.


Okay, I know this looks gross but I didn’t intend it to look a certain way! I have to get up earlier than ever for this class so I had to get these oats ready last night!

I added:
1/4 cup of Steel Cut Oats  (TJ Quick Cook)
1/2 cup bluberries
2/3 cup Soy Milk
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup organic raisins

I let that sit in the fridge overnight and mixed in a 3/4 scoop of protein after heating this morning. So this was all just a little bit more or extra than yesterday’s bowl, and it held me over a little better! It was great running fuel and tasted AMAZING despite the “Count Chocula” look

Refreshing Lunch:

1 BLOG 009

Scrambled Egg Whites, A Navel Orange, and a salad of organic baby greens, organic locally grown sprouts, zuchinni circles, and brie.

I was still hungry right after finishing so I had a handful of these new things I picked up at Trader Joes:
1 BLOG 011
Snapea Crisps
1 BLOG 012
I actually had 1 entire serving at least because they were so darn delicious! They are light and puffy like popcorn but they are salty and have a little chew to them ( no harsh kernel parts). Super cool snack but unfortunately, I doubt they count towards a veggie serving! They taste more fried than baked seriously, a little “potato chip greasey”, but not in an awful way. I really enjoyed them and I am going to snag some more for this weekend! Ingredients: Snap Peas, Corn Oil, Rice, Salt, and I believe Vitamin C as an anti-oxidizer. Corn Oil actually has a decent breakdown of polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fats- so not too shabby.


Pasta Alla  Carbonara1 BLOG 013

Ingredients for Sauce:

  • 1 Tb flour ( I used whole wheat)
  • 1 TB butter ( I used Smart Balance)
  • 1/3 cup reserved HOT pasta water
  • 1/2  cup  egg substitute
  • 2/3 cup 1% milk
  • 2  teaspoons  olive oil
  • 1/2  cup  grated fresh Parmesan cheese
  • 1 oz  brie or cheddar whatever you like 
  • 1/4  teaspoon  salt
  • 1/2  teaspoon  freshly ground black pepper
  • 4  bacon slices, cooked and chopped
  • Directions

    1. Combine egg substitute and milk with whisk. Whisk in slowly HOT pasta water.

    2.  In a medium heat skillet, whisk in flour and butter to form a roux.

    3. Whisk in liquid mixture from step 1 slowly so that it incorporates the roux from step 2.

    4. Continue whisking for approx. 3 minutes until it thickens. Whisk in Olive Oil

    5. Add remainder of ingredients, stirring frequently

    I add my drained Whole Wheat Penne to the sauce, added sliced Baby Roma Tomatoes and Fat Free Feta
