Here it goes

So today is my first weekend day breakfast post. Most of my posts will be all together at the end of the day because I rarely get home before 9pm during the week.

Today I woke up at around 8am. I scrubbed my bathroom and cleaned my fish bowl for an hour. I had about 4 ounces of almond breeze and an Adora calcium + Vitamin D+K supplement.

Around 10 I made breakfast. About 3/4 fage, 2 huge frozen strawberries from trader joe's (thawed in microwave), a small handful of Kashi Go Lean (maybe 1/3 cup) and half a sliced grapefruit. Adora consumed earlier and one large glass seltzer. I also had a diet coke in the morning. Gross my biggest weakness and the habit I am most guilty about! I will not have another today!I used half a Seventh Generation recycled paper towel as a napkin.

Hopefully my body had enough time between the Adora and the fage to absorb all the calcium. A note on the hand method. Your hand is typically the perfect portion size for your body, so be it a handful of nuts, a fist size serving of pasta, or a palm size serving of protein, your hand is a great way to measure with out getting crazy. Trust your body; it was made perfectly!

I have a lot planned for the day. Tons of school work, sorting out life details, trying a Bikram Yoga class at Bikram NYC ( my fitness passport gives my a free week), cleaning like crazy because my roommate is having a birthday party here tonight, making a double batch of slightly different salads to eat twice, clean once, and perhaps going to a friend's birthday party much later tonight.

This should be an interesting eating day because my other roommate is an amazing chef, and he is making two phyllo baked bries, a triple layer red velvet cake and more. Obviously, between the two parties there will be lots of alcohol around.

Last night I worked out with my friend and he gave me a great workout. 35 minute run (I alternated 6.2 (2 minutes) and 8 mph (intervals starting at 30 seconds and going to 2 minutes and coming back down). 15 minutes on the rower, 20 minutes on the elliptical, 8 minutes on the rower in underhand position. We wrapped up with 10 minutes free weights, 3 sets of 10 on the aductor and abductor machine and about 5 minutes abs and some stretching.

He aims to burn at least 1000 calories. I never pay attention to the calories, but if he burned 1000, I probably burned around 650 or 700. No fair! :)

PS Thanks to magic spell check fairy who fixed my spell check. I heart you!

Ah, I'm so sorry - I just now saw the comment that you left for me, on your post about the nutrition bars: I don't post my meals on my blog, but people have asked me to email sample meal plans to them, to see what I eat :0)
