Working It Out

I slept until 7:30 this morning!  Ugh, it’s going to be brutal getting up at 6 a.m. in 2 more days!  My goal is to be more organized this school year, so we’ll see how that goes…

Since I was such a slacker this morning, I went right to breakfast instead of working out first.  I was in the mood for a Yogurt Bowl.  This mix was Chobani nonfat plain yogurt, a handful of questionable strawberries (made into syrup), 3 chopped walnuts and 1 tbsp. shredded coconut…

I love these Yogurt Bowls!  It is filling (greek yogurt has a ton of protein) yet, light enough that I can workout right after without it bothering my stomach.  And I did just that!  I hit the treadmill with my suicide bomber weight vest and walked at a medium pace for 40 minutes.  Then, I tried some of  THESE awesome moves suggested to me by the Superhero of the Fitness World… MizFit!  I will have Arms of Steel one day!  Right now, it’s just Wings of Wobble…

Before I headed out the door for some errands, I had a quick lunch.  Nothing fancy, just a reheat of last night’s Grilled Veggie Pizza

I still wanted a bite of something, so I nibbled on 1/2 of a Choco – Cranberry- Almond Granola Bar …..

I did nibble on a piece of the bread, but decided to stop since I was feeling just right.

I ended the night with a cup of Teeccino while losing badly at Bingo…

Have a great night everyone!!

ONE GOOD THING :  Anytime that I felt anxious today and wanted to eat  due to it, I took a moment to “feel the feeling” instead of just rushing to feed it.

Great job on feeling the feeling! That's a huge breakthrough.

Love the yogurt combos - I never knew yogurt could be so fun until I got older LOL!

What a lovely day. Whole Wheat Orzo looks like rice to me. I was to try that out soon.

Miz said...

you made me giggle.

TAKE ANY VIDEO :)

Whole Wheat orzo- I have been questing for that here !! Whole wheat couscous is common but not the orzo- you lucky girl !

Great idea about feeling the feelings. I really need to do this as the stress of nursing school is kicking back up into full swing. I tend to eat way too much during the school year. Happy Monday :)

I used to make chicken cacciatore all the time but haven't made it in ages; must put it on my "make" list... The cauliflower and zucchini gratin looks amazing!

I'm glad things are going so well! :)

I love the feeling the feelings. I used to stuff them with food. You are doing awesome!

I've never tried Orzo, but I will - I promise!

Tamara said...

Hahaha! I got me some of those Wings of Wobble too!

What are the chances you might want to post the recipe for that cauliflower zuchini gratinee? It looks soooooo good and I just happen to have both those veggies in my fridge right now.

Or you could email it to me if you like. Pretty please?

LOL...on the questionable strawberries and wings of wobble. You dinner looks amazing. Man I wish I had time to cook like that, but life is happening...too fast.

Wendy said...

looks like a great dinner. so how do you like that teaccino?

I have to tell you, Marisa, you are inspiring the hell out of me.

I feel like we are "Journey Sisters". I feed off your good energy, and send you mine when you need it.

I love how you are "feeling the feeling", and listening to your body. Reading this is making me more conscious of what my own is saying. I had forgotten to give it a listen in the recent past. Thanks for bringing that back up to the top of my brain.

Thinspired said...

I feel the same way about yogurt bowls/messes---filling yet somehow still light enough to workout. Love 'em! How do you make your berries into a syrup? Microwave or stove?

Heather said...

Loving the wings of wobble line!!!! I keep working on mine, too. They wobble way less than they used to. MizFit's videos are fabulous.

Marisa (Trim The Fat) said...

Tamara - It wasn't my best work, which is why I didn't post my recipe, but I had another thought about how to go about making it, so I'll send you an email tomorrow, k?

Thinspired - I microwave the fruit for anywhere b/w 30 sec. to 1 min. depending on the fruit. I bet it would work just fine on a stove, too!

Wendy - I love Teeccino! I have been using the Hazelnut flavor, but I'm picking up the Java flavor tomorrow -looking forward to that! But, ever since drinking it - no more stomach pain, throat/ reflux stuff! Plus, I feel a whole lot better physically, for some reason, too!

Thanks to everyone for your nice thoughts and comments!
