His and Hers

Thursday night’s dinner was an attempt at using up some pantry/fridge staples and it was tasty! I made a salad out of baby spinach, dried cherries, a sunshine veggie burger, TJ’s celtic cheese, and homemade mustard-balsamic vinaigrette. I enjoyed the last slice of chocolate-chip banana bread and iced green tea on the side.

Lots of flavor!

Meanwhile, Nate chowed down on his dinner. His sandwich consisted of a breaded chicken patty, lettuce, & tomato on a sub roll. He remarked that the chicken patty tasted like a McDonald’s chicken nugget. Total guy food! I thought it would be funny to post about our two very different dinners.

Dude food 🙂

I planned on going to an 8am yoga class, but was just too sleepy on Friday morning! Instead I did 30 push-ups, 30 tricep dips, and some ab work when I (finally) woke up. I also had a tasty breakfast: coffee, raspberries, plain greek yogurt, and cinnamon puffins.

Breakfast
My day was busy, so lunch was at my desk.

In today’s mix:

  • spinach, red onion, mushroom, shredded carrots
  • chickpeas (~1/2 cup)
  • feta chese
  • dried cranberries
  • balsamic vinaigrette
  • whole grain croutons
  • little bit of baked salmon
  • Along with an unsweetened green iced tea that I forgot to drink!

Lunch

Afternoon snacks were: chocolate graham bears and a jocalat fruit & nut bar (5 grams of fiber, woo-hoo!)

I stayed a little late at work and then headed to the gym for quick workout – 30 minutes on the elliptical, 10 minutes on the rowing machine, and 10 minutes incline walking on the treadmill. The soreness from Tuesday’s lunges & squats is finally subsiding, but my IT band is still being a b*tch 🙁

Dinner was homemade sausage and pepper pita pizza, almost identical to the recipe that I made back in May. I used a thin whole wheat pita, topped it with organic shredded mozzarella, sliced red bell peppers, and 1/2 link of chicken sausage. Along with some diet root beer – it was the perfect Friday night meal!

Mmmm.

    Your running talent is totally inspiring, and your eats look delicious! You go girl!

  • Stumbled across your blog from Self’s Eat Like Me, and I have to say, you’re quite the inspiration! I’m a 2007 grad too, and I’ve found it super tough the last few years trying to maintain a healthy work/life balance and squeeze in regular workouts. I’m hoping to train for my first half this summer, though, so thanks for providing such great eating & training tips!
