i dont wannnnaaaa

February 10, 2009

ooooooh i did not feel like going to the gym today. I really didn’t one bit. the thing is though, i’m going to New York this weekend for Vday, and am not sure if i’ll be able to get some good runs in, and the dinner will probably be a big indulgence too. ( we are going to the most amazing italian restaurant EVERRRR and chocolate ravioli is on my list for dessert!   *drool* ) I needed to run today. I want to keep up with my schedule, and not slack. I made my legs walk me to the gym and figured that I wanted to get a good workout in, and make it a quick one. I pulled out my handy dandy notebook filled with different treadill workouts and picked a 20 minute high intensity interval training workout that I got from Oxygen Magazine’s website. I hadn’t done this one before, and for being only 20 minutes it sure got my blood flow going. It was a really good workout and i definitely plan on using it again.  I couldn’t find it on the website when i looked to link it so here it is:

Before I went to the gym I had the Apple Cinnamon flavored Pure Bar. WOW. it was delicious. The ingredients are great and simple. Every single ingredient is organic. Here’s the list:

Dates, apples, walnuts, agave nectar, cashews, almonds, brown rice protein, cinnamon

The taste was to die for and you could see the chunks of apple. This is slightly higher than the Cherry Cashew now. I seriously didn’t want this to bar to end. it was So good!!

#3 Wild Blueberry

Lunch today was some tuna with onions and some Kashi Crackers. I also bought a fage with cherry today after I hit the gym. Love this flavor, the sweetness of the cherries pairs perfectly with the tartness of the yogurt.  After my 20 minute run I headed over to Whole Foods to pick up a few things. It was my lucky day because they were sampling CHOCOLATE COVERED STRAWBERRIES!!!!! delicious! drizzled with white chocolate… yummO. Can’t get a better sample than that!

Tonight i’m getting dinner with my friend Brooke. I haven’t seen her in a while, so it’s going to be great to catch up. We’re going to a restaurant called Victoria’s Gastro Pub. Its a newish restuarant in Columbia, and has gotten amazing reviews. And don’t worry, I”ve already scanned the menu 🙂 haha. I am almost 100% sure i’m going to get the butternut squash risotto. I’ve never tried risotto before, but it sounds divine. I’ll be sure to snag some pics, sneaky style! haha. Can’t wait for dinner! Hope your Tuesday has been great, tomorrow is hump day, almost halfway through the weeeeek!

    Thanks for getting back to me on the tofu so quick! Thinking about it, I do my tofu on the stove when I am not using the GC mix and it always turns out better color. I’ve never tried it with the honey ginger mix though. I’ll try it next time, thank you!

    Great treadmill mix! And I love that simple lunch. Something about tuna and onions…they just go together!
