On my way home from work today, I stopped to pick up two more books for my book stack. The only difference is I think I plan on reading these versus adding them to the pile LOL. I also couldn’t resist a couple new magazines.
Janetha raves about Body for Life and Kirwin at Graceful Creative really sold me on the Power of Less book in THIS post. I’ll be sure to let you all know what I think of the books. I may take on the Body for Life as my next fitness challenge ~ Whatcha all think?
Any Body For Lifers out there care to share what you think?
When I got home I was pumped to see my FREE sample of Sun Butter finally arrived. I might have to incorporate this into tomorrows eats…..YUM!
Before I could talk myself out of it, I broke out my new Thorlo Socks and hopped on the treadmill for a quick 30 minute interval run mixing up hills with walking and running.
I LOVE these socks and I am a total Balga sock snob when it comes to running socks. They are soft, cushiony in all the right places and just completely comfortable to wear in and out of your shoes. I now have another brand I can buy along withy my Balga socks ~ Yeah!
I STILL wasn’t starving when dinner time rolled around so I decided to change my plans up a little bit. The Husband and I decided to sample our Lychee that we bought at Larry’s Produce over the weekend. On the outside they look cool but i wasn’t sure how to “peel” them.
So I just sort of cut them in half and found out they have a seed in the middle – oops!
The Husband was scared to try them at first because he said they look like little eye balls. I told him they taste like a pear/rose and he took the teeniest bite ever. I think he couldn’t get past the look/texture. They are not bad, but, they are super sweet and the flavor is strong. Yeah for trying a new fruit and I didn’t have to buy a ton to do that.
I REALLY, REALLY wanted the Cheesy Chicken Shells for dinner but since I am working on Mindful Eating, not Mindless Eating I opted for a lighter dinner. I made up an Asian Inspired Burger Salad.
Leftover salad from last night sans the mushrooms & cheese
1 Don Lee VEGAN Burger (so good!)
1 oz lowfat mozzarella diced (needed another dairy serving!)
1 svg TJ’s Lowfat Spicy Peanut Vinaigrette
Like how The Husband is eating his cherries – no bowl needed when you are a guy I guess 😀 LOL…..He said “no bowl needed because he isn’t taking a picture of it” HA!
The salad was pretty tasty since the burgers seriously taste like veggie eggrolls and they were complimented with the peanut dressing.
I still wanted something more after eating this salad, so I had some Salsa Sun Chips. I started off with a 1/2 a serving pictured here, then, went back for the rest of the serving later when The Husband broke out the BIG bag.
I may or may not have had one of these 1 Weight Watcher Point Lemon Cookies for dessert – so good! It finally satisfied me…yeah!
I am off to read my new magazines and check out my new books! Oh and The Husband just requested ice cream…..I MUST resist……I’ll be sure to report back if I cave and have some. I already know I’ll be guilty of a bite but that should be all!
One more day to win Amazing Grass!!!
