Sorry I've been MIA again; there have been a number of health issues in my family recently, and I've been a little distracted.  I'm doing well with the whole 30 Classes in 30 Days thing; I've been doing Hot Yoga every day since Thursday, and I found some great videos on Netflix I'll be talking more about later.  Don't go anywhere, please! I'll be back soon...

Day 26

I know I'm not being the best blogger right now, but stay with me! There's a lot of craziness gong on in my life right now (isn't there always?), but I'm doing my best to stay on target.  

So far, so good with workouts!  I ended up doing a video last night (CRUNCH: Fat-Loss Pilates), which I didn't love, but at least it got me moving.  I have class/work/study group today, so I'll probably be doing another video tonight--but again, it's better than nothing!

This is my new favorite breakfast:
Soy Pudding/Yogurt + Nature's Valley Granola.  Mmmm.

And my new favorite indulgence:
Arnold's Sandwhich Round + Tofutti Cheese + Soy Sausage
(SO much cheaper than eating out, and way healthier, too!)

This is what I had for dinner...

Just kidding! Haha, I crack myself up (okay, not really).  Nope, this loot is the awesome giveaway going on at Nikes and Ponytails.  How awesome does it look? I hope I win!

Day 24: Ouch!

I haven't been this sore in weeks months! And that's a good thing.  Well, it's not good that I haven't been working out that hard in a looong time, but it is good that I went to a challenging class yesterday! Unfortunately, the instructor is leaving to go on vacation tomorrow, so tonight is my last chance to have a class with him for a long time! And I'm so stiff!

I'll try to go, but the bf laughed when I told him I was trying to do 30 Classes in 30 Days.  He also pointed out that there are no classes on Sundays.  So, I decided to include Netflix Exercise Videos into the challenge (i.e., if I can't/don't make it to a class, I can make up for it by doing a whole video).  Also, I can double up (i.e. do Step Aerobics and then a Core Class right after).  

1/3 an order of Vegan Orange Chicken (leftovers)
1 container Kozy Shack Pudding w/ 1 tsp. Organic Blueberry Preserves
LOTS of water...


Lettuce + 1 1/2 Chik'n Patties + 3/4 Apple + Goddess Dressing +Light Caesar Dressing+ Croutons


I got my schedule all wrong, and so I thought I was going to a yoga class tonight, and ended up being 45 minutes early for ANOTHER Core Class--argh!  I did some light ellipticalling, and then a good 30 minute Core Class--my abs aren't as sore as I thought they would be (my quads are another issue).  

Not a bad day!

Day 23: I'm back

So, I kinda fell off the wagon a few days ago. It sucked (excuse my language). But yesterday was a good day, and I went to a 6:30am Pilates class today, so I think that means I'm officially BACK on the wagon! Here's what I've been up to...

Saturday Breakfast: Tofu burger + Guac

Saturday Dinner: Amy's Rice Cheese Pizza (YUM!)

Monday Breakfast: Tofu Burger + Guac

Monday Breakfast: Baked Potato Slices

New Find! Kozy Shack Pudding (2/$6 at Farm Fresh).  Fewer calories/Less sugar/Same protein as Silk Soy Yogurt, and less expensive? How does that make sense?

Yummy treats from the Kosher section!

Vegan Caesar Salad (w/Croutons!) for dinner Monday.  Also had a Kozy Shack, and some kosher/vegan cookies (33 calories each, and I had four over the course of the whole evening!

I ran 2 miles yesterday, and went to a Core Class at the Gym.  I also went on the elliptical for 25 minutes (11 before class and 14 after).  

My new goal: 30 Classes in 30 Days
When I move, I have to give up my gym membership, so I'm going to try to make the most of it these last few days!

Day 19: On the road again...

Organic Banana

1/2 Arnolds Sandwich Round (very good!) + 1/2 Organic Blueberry Preserves + 1/2 Natural Chunky PB

Cantaloupe some peanuts & cookie dough (but not too much!) while catching up on some blogs.  

I didn't go to the gym today, since I had to come home right after class to pack to drive back to my parents house this weekend.  A little background info: I live in Norfolk, VA, but my parents live in Potomac, MD.  In May, I will move back in with my parents for a month, before moving to Baltimore, MD for Nursing School.  

The bf and I like to walk in my parents neighborhood, plus they have satellite TV & a treadmill, so hopefully I'll get a little sweating time in today!

Day 18: "My tummy huuuuuuurts!"

That's what I feel like moaning, but really, it's my own fault. I woke up (again, to no food in the whole darn house), and had about four peanuts as a reflex, and instantly felt sick to my stomach. I've got a lot of work to do on this quilt (I mismeasured last night), so I think I'm going to bribe the bf to go buy me some grapes or bananas or something!

The world's best peanuts. 

Yummy snack.  

To help my tummy.  


Walked for 2 hours today! Plus, I went for a quickie 1-mile run with the bf. IN THE RAIN.

Day 17

I spent most of today working on my quilt (!), and working, so I left most of the food choices up to the bf. Here's what he came up with.

Brunch: 3/8 c. PEANUTS. Ugh, stomach ache after that one.


After doing some yard work for his mother, they went out to dinner, and he brought me his leftover veggie fajita. Very sweet of him, but it was pretty oily, so I didn't eat much.


Of course, I was hungry--having only ate peanuts and a few oily veggies. So instead of going out and getting some real food, I made cookie dough. Ugh. Ugh Ugh.

On the bright side, I did run 1. 75 miles today! I would have run 2, but the little boy I was chasing on his scooter fell down, and we had to walk the rest of the way home.
