My beloved tofu

For breakfast, I made pumpkin oats with some chocolate chips and peanut butter 🙂


Today at work, I tried hemp milk in my coffee. It was different. I don’t think I’ll do it again because the tastes just don’t go well together. But it was worth a shot.

I snacked on mixed nuts later in the morning.


Are you guys getting bored of my nuts yet? Ha ha.

Lunch was mixed veggies and leftover eggplant from last night which I decided to top with hummus today…wow! I will definitely be buying eggplant again soon.


Then, this afternoon I got to try a new Larabar!


I think this is only the second of the Jocalat line that I have tried but oh my! I am in love with ALL the new Larabar flavors. Not a bad thing.

Then after work, I finally got to work out!

I warmed up on the treadmill for 15 minutes then I got started on some strength training. I did 15 reps of each move using various weights:

  • Chest presses
  • Military shoulder press
  • Seated row machine
  • Upright row with bar
  • Bicep curls
  • Tricep extensions
  • Front raises
  • Lateral raises
  • Squats
  • Lunges
  • Plie squats
  • Ab exercises (about 6 or 7 different ones)

It felt so good to get moving again. And I am happy to report that after some salt gargling I did last night, my throat seems to be all better!

I thought “Sheesh, I only did it once” but I did do it about 5 times in a row.

Anyway, I had an absolutely fabulous dinner when I got home.

First, I started steaming some fresh green beans. It was so nice to not use the frozen for once. These were 99 cents a pound!


Then I made my beloved baked tofu, which I hadn’t had in a couple of weeks now. It’s nice to change things up for a while and then come back to an old favorite.


All together now, with some brown rice. Delicious!


Even though I do wish that Josh ate some of the same things I do, it is nice having these leftovers all to myself for lunch tomorrow 🙂

Hope you have had a great Tuesday. I am off to make some potato soup for our Wednesday Night Girls Potluck.

Good night!

  1. I love that little steamning Gadget! I never saw that before.

    Dude I am so proud of your are doing so great and truly motivate me!

    Great workout too!

    I think you get an A today for healthy lifestyle!

  2. Hi Sarah! That steaming thing looks really cool. Love it.
    I like the way you cook those tofus. Much better than fry it as I always do :-P. Do you put some red pepper on it too?? looks really tasty!

  3. Great stuff! I am impressed by your workout, when I feel under the weather I can never motivate myself to hit the gym. Glad you are feeling better, too!
    My boyfriend eats the same stuff I do, but about 3x the amount. Jealous of your ample leftovers, ha!

  4. awesome workout!

    and I love that baked tofu! looks great!

  5. I’m so jealous that you found some of the new Larabars! That one sounds so yummy.

  6. I have to admit, I’m jealous! I wish I could keep all the leftovers in my fridge to myself. It sucks when you have a craving for last night’s feast and you find that your boyfriend took the last of it to work. Lame : )
