pb makes a comeback

March 24, 2009

A thousand thanks to all of you sweet friends for your wonderful comments regarding my race! You guys always brighten up my day πŸ™‚

Yesterday was a pretty good Monday. I was exhausted alll day though from the weekend. It was really rough getting out of bed, i just wanted to sleep all morning. When I woke up I had microwaved egg whites with some laughing cow and Franks Red Hot on a slice of Rudi’s honey whole wheat bread.

For my snack I had a banana nut odwalla bar. I loveee these bars. My other favorite odwalla flavor is chocolate chip peanut. They are nice and soft and have the best consistency. If you warm this bar up it tastes like a slice of banana bread. amahzing.

During my lunch break I mosied on over to Ikea to see if I could find a few things for the place. I got a few little things and then rushed back to work. I came back to eat some of my chicken salad. My mom buys a whole rotisserie chicken from Costco, and then uses it to make an amazing chicken salad. She adds craisins in it which is such a perfect addition. I had some of the chicken salad with an arnolds sandwich thin. I ate the halves separately and folded it in half to make it like a mini pita πŸ™‚

Since I’ll be visiting Salisbury this weekend to reunite with some loves from school ( AH i cant WAIT) I wasn’t goign to be able to make my Sat morning yoga class with my mom. We made it up last night and it was our last class of the session 😦 I loved the class so much, and am so glad I got the chance to spend some QT with my mom. This was so much fun for us. This is also my last week of Bikram. My month membership ends on Thursday. The Bikram studio near my new place is having a special for new students where an unlimited month is $33 so i’ll be jumping on that special next week.Β  The shower in our place isn’t working right now… i’ll prob get all settled in either at the end of this week or when I get back from Salisbury this weekend.Β  Then i’ll snap lots of pics to give you guys the tour!

When I got back from yoga I finally had to make use of my spaghetti squash. I’ve been meaning to use it for a while now. I sauteed up some garlic, onions, spinach, sundried tomatoes, artichokes, and chickpeas then threw the cooked spaghetti squash into the mix. I topped it off with some feta and dinner was served! Quick and easy dinner that tastes delicious. I’ll be having the leftovers for lunch today, yummm.

This morning I woke up late againnn so I didn’t have time to eat breakfast. Thank goodness I made a breakfast cookie last night, so I just ate it in the car on my way to work. I haven’t used PB in my cookie, usually almond butter so I used mighty maple, almond milk, coconut, agave, flax, choc chips, and 2/3 c oats. Loved this combo. I’m falling in love with the mighty maple again, i kind of ditched it for almond butter but i’ve forgotten how GOOD it is!

Tonight i’ll be going to Bikram, and then Biggest Loser is on tonight!!!!

Have a wonderful Tuesday!

    I’m jealous you get to do yoga with your mom. Mine still lives in Delaware but when I go home to visit we’ll go to the gym together. Have fun in Salisbury this week!

  5. March 24, 2009 9:28 am

    I love the sandwich thin as a mini pita! πŸ™‚

    I wish I could do yoga with my mom, that would be such a fun way to get some time in with her, but there’s really few yoga studios by me and they are all super expensive.
    That mini pita idea is genius! can’t wait for the tour of your new place!

    Mmm hello ArnoldThin pitas! That looks fabulous! AND YOUR DINNER!!! Ohmigosh. Chickpeas and feta have to be two of my favorite things. I never used to like feta, but now it’s one of the cheeses I couldn’t do without every now and then. I think I just love mediterranean flavahs! I hope you have a fantastic Tuesday, darling!

  9. March 24, 2009 10:33 am

    Oooh your dinner combo looks so good. Some of my fav ingredients there.

  10. March 24, 2009 10:39 am

    hot sauce makes everything better!

  11. March 24, 2009 10:43 am

    I love Craisins in stuff like that! Chicken salad from a rotisserie chicken is the best πŸ™‚
    Glad you had a good Monday…here is to another good week!

  12. March 24, 2009 10:44 am

    Oh I like your spaghetti squash dish!! Spag squash is so versatile!

  13. March 24, 2009 10:48 am

    Yummy breakfast cookie, I think Mighty Maple has a special place in everyone’s hearts, it seriously is amazing!

    I NEED that Rhianna song now!! Thanks for the heads up πŸ™‚

  14. March 24, 2009 11:30 am

    Mmm…spaghetti squash is the best! I just bought the Banana Nut Odwalla bar to try and I can’t wait. Oh, and I totally had a breakfast cookie this morning too with some fruit while FLYING out the door. Do you find yourself getting out of bed faster when you realize that little surprise is waiting for you? Such motivation πŸ™‚

  15. March 24, 2009 11:49 am

    LOVE that Odwalla bar, so delish πŸ˜‰

  16. March 24, 2009 12:28 pm

    yum dinner! every time i eat spaghetti squash i want to pretend i am eating pasta but sadly it never fools me LOL

  17. March 24, 2009 12:34 pm

    I adore Rihanna so I’m downloading that song now!

    Also, you’ve motivated me to try Bikram again! I can’t right now because I don’t have a vehicle and the studio is a long ways from my house (and who wants to ride the bus home all sweaty anyways) but this summer when I get a car I think I’m going to get a membership there and then just run outside and do the 30-day shred every once in a while for weights. I’m over the whole gym thing for awhile πŸ™‚

  18. March 24, 2009 12:38 pm

    glad you posted your spaghetti squash, I am cooking mine tomorrow!!

  19. March 24, 2009 12:44 pm

    The squash looks like an amazing combination of flavors! And didn’t you make the “spaghetti” a while ago. How long does it keep for?

    I love Ikea too. Unfortunatly, there aren’t any in Louisiana. 😦

    What a good idea to use the rotisserie chicken to make chicken salad! Those are always so flavorful so I am sure its delicious!

  32. March 25, 2009 7:33 am

    how does your mom make her chicken salad? I found a recipe last yr for a healthified chicken sald:

    greek yogurt instead of mayo
    celery
    walnuts
    craisins
    chicken

    SO SO GOOD, i agree, the craisins TOTALLY make the salad!!!

    i looooove me some sphaghetti squash! I’m planning on making Spaghetti Squash Mexicana with Tropical Avocado Salsa Fresca from Veganomicon sometime this week! Probably Friday after my long run!
