Busy Day!

I was very busy with work today so I am just getting to post now. This morning, it was quite chilly outside but I was able to get in my run without a problem. I ran my 5-mile route A in reverse. It went well, but I am still going slower than I’d like.

I came home and made my green monster for today. Which was made of 1 cup of vanilla unsweetened almond milk, 1 frozen banana, 1 cup of spinach and a spoonful of vanilla coconut ice cream. It was super yummy.

I also had coffee with half and half + a stevia packet and off I went….

While in between offices today I snacked on a Siggi’s vanilla yogurt.

Which is starting to taste good to me finally! For lunch I had the salad I made last night.

It’s tough to see it’s contents, but it included romaine lettuce, purple and green cabbage, cucumbers, grilled chicken breast and blue cheese. I topped it with some balsamic vinegar and a little olive oil.

While I was at my main office I was tempted again! Someone had received a fresh fruit bouquet that included chocolate covered strawberries. How can I deny myself one of those! I also had a few pieces of my Vivani espresso dark chocolate. That chocolate has really grown on me.

When I got home from work I did my Mari Winsor pilates 50-minute DVD. For dinner I cut up my leftover stuffed pepper from last night and added some more tomato sauce and some cheese.

It was very filling- one stuffed pepper has a lot of sustenance! I used Classico sauce. Ingredients: Tomato Puree (Water, Tomato Paste), Diced Tomatoes (Tomatoes, Tomato Juice, Citric Acid, Calcium Chloride), Fire Roasted Diced Tomatoes (Fire Roasted Tomatoes, Tomato Juice, Salt, Citric Acid, Calcium Chloride), Onion, Olive Oil, Salt, Garlic, Spices, Dehydrated Garlic. Citric acid is a preservative and calcium chloride seems to work as one as well. I need to start making my own tomato sauce!

Alright, well it’s been a long day and the couch is calling…

Dessert

Well that sweet tooth that I spoke of yesterday did not go away at all. I  had a major craving for something sweet and splurged on an almond and chocolate coconut ice cream bar. Luckily for me, the bars are relatively ok because they are all-natural.

This was a very tasty treat. I bought these over a month ago and this is the second one I’ve had. It’s not my usual style to have such a dessert, but I really wanted it and I tried to do away with any guilt since they are ‘all natural’.

INGREDIENTS: NON-DAIRY FROZEN DESSERT (COCONUT MILK, ORGANIC AGAVE SYRUP, CHICORY ROOT EXTRACT, CAROB BEAN GUM, GUAR GUM, NATURAL COCONUT FLAVOR), CHOCOLATE COATING (BEET SUGAR, CHOCOLATE LIQUOR, COCONUT OIL AND/OR PALM OIL, COCOA BUTTER, SOY LECITHIN, SALT, VANILLA EXTRACT), ALMONDS, TOASTED COCONUT.

I think I am going to laugh every time I see soy lecithin. I knew before even looking at the ingredients there would be some in these.
