Backtracking

Oops, forgot to tell you guys about last night (except The Biggest Loser part)!

The Chobani yogurt held me quite a long time considering I ate it at 2:00 and dinner was around 6! Usually that doesn’t happen unless I add something to the yogurt (cereal, granola, nuts) but I think I was so busy the rest of the afternoon that I didn’t notice.

For dinner, I made whole wheat spaghetti + rotini, I thought I didn’t have enough spaghetti so I added a half serving of rotini to the pot and of course it ended up being more than a serving. I portioned out 1 cup total of pasta and then put the rest in the fridge for another time. To my sauce (which was Ragu chunky garden combo), I added:

  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • 1/2 cup chopped spinach
  • 1/2 cup chopped peppers + onions mix
  • 2 chopped links of turkey sausage
  • 2 tsp parmesan cheese (on top)

Holy veggie-protein-licious spaghetti!

This was a great meal and filled me up very nicely, plus it was good to get the veggies in there as always.

I ended up not going to volleyball because of my strange leg pain, but I did not veg on the couch. I did dishes, laundry, cleaning (countertops) and I packed my lunch and gym bag for the next day. It really feels good to get that all done the night before and saves lots of time in the a.m.!

During all those activities, I had two of these beauties for heart health:

I swear, I used to be a strictly milk chocolate only girl and now I don’t even bother with the stuff and I prefer dark chocolate, the darker the better! So see, you may think you don’t like something now, but that could change. Something being healthy for you always motivates me to give it a chance too. Plus, sometimes chocolate can be a giver of good advice…

During The Biggest Loser, I got up during every commercial break and did something constructive (teeth brushing, etc.) and even started on the husband’s Diet Analysis that I promised him I would do ages ago. He wrote down everything he ate for three days (2 during the week and 1 weekend) and I’m in the process of plugging it into my nutrition computer program from a class I took a year ago. He wants to know how “bad” he is doing and hopefully he’ll let me help him change!

Somewhere before 9:00, I had some See Sarah Eat granola and a cup of sugar cookie sleigh ride tea. In April? Yep.
