This is what I woke up to

Yesterday it was 85°! What is going on here?! I gotta say the change of weather was pretty pleasing, I honestly felt like we had no winter this year. Unfortunately I woke up to the horror of the natural disaster happening in Japan. My condolences go out to anyone who has family there or is actually experiencing the terrible tsunami taking place. To be left without a home in the blink of an eye must without a doubt be one of the most devastating experiences known to mankind. We must all come together in times like these and push forward with our heads held high.

On a separate note, I debated yesterday whether or not I wanted to work out today, I was feeling pretty sore from Wednesday. Luckily I felt fine today in the morning so I jetted off to the gym.

Overall great workout:

  • Leg presses
  • Push ups
  • Step ups
  • Lat Pulldown
  • Wood Choppers
  • Hypers
  • Leg raises

I am so tired! 😦 But luckily I had a good breakfast to compensate for my workout.

Chocolate Nanner Oats!

My usual oat combo topped with: shortbread cookies, peanuts, chia seeds, chocolate morsels,

cinnamon raisin pb and a new addition…Apricot jam!

Gotta say, loving the jam! Yummm 😀

Today overall has been nice, hanging out with the boyfriend while he’s studying for his medical boards. So weird not having much to do but I hope I don’t start getting use to it! Makes me feel so lazy.

Lunch was awesome as it always is when I’m with him. I never get creative at home.

Spaghetti squash topped with Ragu sauce and cheese!! On the side I have chicken, can’t forget the protein 😉 Love getting my spaghetti fix without all the calories hehe 🙂

I make my squash in the microwave as opposed to the oven because when I’m hungry I want to eat NOW lol I can’t wait an hour for the oven 😦

  • Do you notice any difference cooking it in the oven as opposed to the microwave?

To be honest I thought it came out great so I probably wouldn’t waste my time cooking it in the oven. Just like my lazy girl oats I seriously haven’t noticed the difference between stove top and microwave. I think I’ve mastered the microwave 🙂

And on that note I’ll leave you with a picture of me and my bf on Christmas 🙂

Can’t believe it’s already March! Time flies 😀

    FINALLY a “FIT FOODY” blog! Glad I found yours. I am a chef at a cafe and cater lots of special events and 2 years ago I lost 120lbs and food has a complicated meaning in my life and I just started blogging about it myself….

    • 3. Jenny  |  03/11/2011 at 9:33 pm

      Congrats on such an amazing achievement! My bf lost around that much weight too so I know what an accomplishment it is 🙂

  • 4. katiivey  |  03/11/2011 at 7:13 pm

    I love step-ups AND apricot jam! Such a nice change from strawberry or grape 🙂 Pretty pic!

    I’ll nuke my oats in a pinch but I have really come to love stope top.!

    I love how you and your boyfriend always come up with such healthy and delicious lunches..has it always been like this?! And I love cooking squash in the microwave…soo easy!!!

    PS- I’m so sad for what happened in Japan 😦

    • 8. Jenny  |  03/11/2011 at 9:35 pm

      I know it’s horrible 😦
      And yup he’s actually the one who showed me the ropes of healthy eating. I use to have a bad mentality when it came to dieting. The whole carbs and fats are evil. Eating after 6pm= weight gain. Just doing it all wrong. So happy to have pb in my life 😀

  • 9. Katie  |  03/11/2011 at 8:35 pm

    I cant believe its March either!

    I love the shortbread cookie addition to your oats!

    That’s weird, because it was strangely warm out today here. I guess we stole your heat! I was happy about that.

    I looove spaghetti squash. Melty cheese + spaghetti squash = bliss!

  • 14. Little Miss Fitness  |  03/11/2011 at 10:11 pm

    Oh my goodness-I completely agree, it’s already Spring? Say what?

    Anywho-I went from 60 degrees of Southern VA to 25 degrees of Northern NY. Not okay.

    • 16. Jenny  |  03/12/2011 at 12:48 pm

  • 28. Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin  |  03/12/2011 at 3:24 pm

    I’ve never made spaghetti squash in the microwave! That’s a good idea because it takes foreverrrr in the oven.

    Cute pic of you and the bf! 😀

  • 29. mealsformiles  |  03/12/2011 at 7:06 pm

    I would be kind of excited about 57 degrees at any time of day 🙂 I don’t have a microwave (!), but I definitely think the oven allows for more even cooking and lets natural sugars develop/caramelize and starches to develop some flavor.

  • 30. Maryann (The Balanced Bean)  |  03/13/2011 at 3:43 am

    Wow those oats look absolutely amazing! Totally worth it after that workout right 🙂

  • 31. Be fit and be fabulous  |  03/13/2011 at 3:17 pm

    Yum! Those oats look so good! And spaghetti squash is an awesome way to get my spaghetti fix w/o all the calories- you’re so right!

  • 32. Kaila @healthyhelperblog!  |  03/13/2011 at 7:41 pm

    I love spaghetti squash with sauce! Sometime better than pasta actually becasue it has such a sweet taste! 🙂

  • 33. Kaila @healthyhelperblog!  |  03/13/2011 at 7:42 pm

    PS: shortbread cookies on oatmeal sounds fabulous!

  • 34. TheSceneFromMe  |  03/13/2011 at 7:46 pm

    Great photo of you two 🙂
    I’ve never tried spaghetti squash, but I can’t imagine it taste anything like the real thing…..

    Love the jam addition to your oatmeal, great way to add flavor and sweetness.

  • 35. Sarah  |  03/13/2011 at 8:01 pm

    What the heck is a “wood chopper” haha?!?! I’m so intrigued!!!

    Oh boy, it was 62F here in Chicago just two days ago and felt like Summer, everyone went out and the streets were full of people enjoying the nice summer breeze. Ya, we are coming out of a very harsh winter.
