Just Tuesday

Hey y'all. New music Tuesday! Well, there was absolutely NOTHING on itunes this morning to download that looked even remotely good so that did not start my Tuesday off in a positive way. Hopefully the rest of the day will be a little better.

Yesterday's (and this mornings) breakfast was a banana with almond butter. Justin, you are my hero. I wish many good things upon you. Seriously, he is a genius. This is hands down the best almond butter I have ever tasted...and it comes in single serving packets perfect for traveling. Since I have to head to work earlier since I've been taking the bus (everytime I even say the word "bus" I start singing Rosa Parks by Outkast in my head) I need to-go breakfast items. A banana and almond butter are perfect.

Lunch was leftover beef stew that I had made for the boy on Sunday. I always think beef stew is better the second day, don't you??

And then of course, someone at work decided it would be a good idea to bring in cookies. I really was not going to have any, I swear, but then I just couldn't help myself. I took 2 small ones and a cookie stick. All three were really good but not worth the guilt I felt after eating them. I am supposed to be on my best behavior in preparation for Costa Rica. I lost the cookie battle today.

I ate half of my dinner before the gym...which was sauteed brussel sprouts. I keep trying to recreate the fried brussel sprouts from Lattitude, but I just don't think it can be done.

The boy and I went to the gym as soon as he got home from work. I did 3.3 miles on the treadmill (0.3 miles more than I planned) but skipped the rowing because the boy was unhappy with the TVs not working and was in a huff, so I cut my workout a little short. I have long since learned that the majority of the TVs at my gym don't work, so I can workout without them but since the boy is new to my gym, it frustrates him to no end that the TVs don't work. He needs the TV on when he works out.

When we got back from the gym I made some chicken strips with panko bread crumbs for myself and some chicken broccoli ziti for him (unpictured). I'm so glad I switched to panko, they pack so much more of a crunch than regular bread crumbs.

And for dessert I had one of my chocolate cupcakes with peppermint frosting. YUM.

Kind of an uneventful day yesterday.

Have you ever tried panko breadcrumbs? Do you need to have a TV on when you workout?


  1. I love using Panko bread crumbs for chicken! As long as I have my iPod I don't need a TV but I like having something else to distract me.

  2. Winter vacation is a cruel mistress - we'll be on a cruise that takes off on 1/3 and trying to balance the holidays with a health-push is so challenging!

    I LOVE running outside in the summer, so obviously no TV then. Just heaps of music. This winter, I've become fond of it, but that's because I take the time on the treadmill to catch-up on girly shows that my man really would not love.
