The skinny
Another rough night of plenty of hours of pillow time, but very low quality sleep. I suspect hormone poisoning is the culprit. On the plus side, the corporate overlords have given us today as a bonus day off, so I can take a nap. I. love. naps.

    That looks like a fun workout! Kinda light on veggies, cute thing… That's, like, one meal! You OK?

  • Jen says:

    7.25 hours sleep (11 – 6:15) for no good reason. Reading blogs. : -(

    B – 8:00 am: 1 egg, 1.5 cups portabello mushrooms with garlic and 1/2 bunch of cilantro. 1 cup mixed cantaloupe/blueberries/raspberries with slivered almonds mixed in.

    9:00 Ran 5K.

    10:00 1 hard boiled egg, 1/2 cup blueberries and raspberries.

    1:00 Made lunch for my friends… salad (napa cabbage, red bib lettuce, arugula, dandelion greens, ruby red chard, kale, cilantro, red cabbage; yellow, red, and orange peppers, red radishes, yellow squash, tomatoes, cucumber, celery, red onions, avocado, kalmata olives, shrimp) Dressing was fresh lemon juice, EVOO, tumeric, fenugreek, ground coriander, s&P, paprika (which I also cooked the shrimp in). Dessert was strawberries, blueberries, and blackberries.

    4:00 small handful of walnuts, 1 oz raisins

    7:45 4 oz Cooked dinner for a friend: ahi tuna, grilled asparagus, zuchinni,and yellow squash; grilled mushrooms and onions with parsley. 2 glasses of Pinot Grigio. hehe! Dessert: coconut banana 'ice cream' (whirl in food processor: frozen ripe bananas, coconut milk or water and cinnamon. when smooth, add walnuts and unsweetened coconut and pulse to roughly chop. Freeze. Then Eat.)

    Can you see why my blob is called '….and SOME fruit…' It's my downfall…I need a constant reminder!

  • Jennifer says:

    I was light on the veg yesterday. Am headed the same way today as well; need to make a giant salad my dinner of choice to catch up a little.

    Coconut banana ice cream is now on my list to try very soon. Sounds amazing.

    snow peas


    Workout – unplanned rest day
    long meeting with trainer, lots of talking no working

    Felt off all day so eating was weird. Ended up eating dinner out, spinach salad w/chicken. Not bad considering we were at a brewery. It was the only none fried finger food they had.

  • Jen says:

    Jennifer! It's so good! and if you use room temp bananas, instead of frozen, it's like pudding! So whatever you're in the mood for!

    Melissa…that dinner sounds excellent! And good will-power!
