Fruit Cravings

How is everyone this evening. Tomorrow is Friday! Yippee!!

I’m really looking forward to the weekend although it isn’t suppose to be that warm but it’s still the weekend. Plus I’m thinking about taking a vacation day next Thursday so it will be a very short week next week and an extra long weekend.

So this morning was instant oatmeal (yes I said instant) but we were in a rush and and it was filling. I had the Quaker Cinnamon Weight Control Oatmeal with almond milk. It was ok, not nearly as good as real oatmeal but I just don’t have time for that during the week.

After I picked up Matt we have a half a flax seed bagel and more pb. I am so loving pb right now. With a very small glass of chocolate milk…

After some fuel Matt and I did day 2, week 1 of C25K. Same as Tuesday’s run – 1 min run, 1.5 min walk. We pushed ourselves really hard and I’m are very, very sore right now. The last day of week 1 is going to be on Saturday. It’s suppose to be –2 on Saturday so that should be interesting.

After we the run it was dinner time. I was craving something fruity really badly so we decided on a pineapple chicken salsa wrap with a side of broccoli and a fruit smoothie.

Started with a fruity smoothie. In the blender: one cup of frozen mixed berries and 1/2 a cup of oj. Straw for added tropical flavour.

In the wok: boneless skinless chicken breast, juice from strained pineapple, soy sauce, honey, fresh garlic.

Salsa consisted of pineapple, onion, brown sugar, lime juice and cilantro…

Finally: wrap, spinach, chicken and salsa…

This was the most amazing supper. It hit the spot. I defiantly recommend it and will be doing this again soon.

I’m just watching Parenthood and as soon as this is posted I’m heading to get some lemon liberte yogurt and a few mini eggs. Nom!

Night all.

Looks like you had some great eats today, especially loving that smoothie. I am also loving PB right now. For so long I stayed away from it because of fat and calories, I'm so over that right now! :)

My new snack is 1 teaspoon of peanut butter and baby carrots. I used to hate carrots, but this is so enjoyable!

Yay for doing C25K. I started it back up this week (I keep starting and stopping haha) My next day is Week 5 Day 3. Having other people who are doing it really makes me want to stick with it!

I really need to start taking pics of my food again. I just love looking at the pics on others blogs. I also, for some reason, always start a grocery list after reading a good food blog....

Racheal - I glad to know your doing C25K to. I'll have someone else to help motivate me. Yeah :)

Cat - I'm like that too. I always end up adding extras to my grocery list after looking at yummy food blogs.
