A new record

Four posts in one day!  🙂

Other than my SWE snacks, dinner included:

IMG_3079A little piece of the fabulous garlic Parmesan bread Dan picked up at Trader Joe’s yesterday and

IMG_3077Tempeh, Peppers and Brown Rice in Apple BBQ Sauce. I picked this sauce up at the apple orchard this weekend, and really wanted to use it.  Since I’m not eating meat this month, I decided to try it with some tempeh!

I’ve had tempeh once before, and was not a fan at the time.  It was way to dry and flavorless for me.

Tempeh, however, has redeemed itself.  I marinated it in Apple BBQ sauce while the rice cooked, then baked it at 400 degrees for 25 minutes with 3 bell peppers and some more BBQ sauce.  I mixed in the rice, and got a delicious, satisfying dinner!

Are there any foods you thought you didn’t like, but changed your opinion when you gave it a second chance?

Zilch willpower…and that’s okay!

My willpower today is approximately zero.  I packed my snacks and my dinner, but let myself get so hungry that I ate chips and oreos at the SWE meeting anyways… and didn’t stop when I was full.  On the bright side, I no longer let myself feel guilty for these things.  I know that 98% of the time, I eat healthy and only when I’m hungry, and I’m active, so the occasional splurge is no biggie.

Now I’m eating grapes instead.  They are just as delicious as the other snacks, and more refreshing 🙂

Blog and Run…

I slept in this morning, which was apparently just what my body needed!  I still had enough time to get some biking in before class, though; I love Tuesday and Thursday classes. 🙂

Distance: 10.0 miles

Time: 44:41

For some reason, the ride (on my trainer) felt really hard today.  Either my muscles are still tired from my strength training last night or the resistance on the trainer was too high.  Either way, I need to get back into biking-shape for my 46-mile ride on October 3!

By the time I showered and packed up for the day, it was time to leave for class, so breakfast and lunch were combined:

IMG_3074Warmed peach + Greek yogurt + Tropical Fruit granola. (Sorry, my pictures are bad today–weird lighting!)

and

IMG_3080Another apple + pumpkin butter + almond butter sandwich. Yummy!

Off to the lab I help teach.  Sorry to blog and run!

Passed Out…

Apparently I was still exhausted yesterday from all of Sunday’s activity.  After dinner, I did some Pilates and weight training, then promptly fell asleep on the couch.  So, a quick catch-up from last night:

IMG_3072Squash Curry. It was good, but did not measure up to Sa-Bai Thong Thai’s squash curry.  When I get the recipe perfected, I will post it.  Until then, I’ll just keep enjoying the leftovers. 🙂

IMG_3073Mock Apple Crisp. This picture does not do this dessert justice.  I just sliced up an apple and sprinkled it with cinnamon.  I microwaved it for 30 seconds, then topped it with some plain granola and maple syrup.  Yum!

Class is about to start– back later with updates from today!
