Menu - August 30th

Today was my first actual workout with Insanity - although the Fit Test alone felt like more than a workout to me.  So I was pretty hungry by the time breakfast rolled around.

Pumpkin protein pancakes with walnuts and a touch of maple syrup.
First day back to work since my vacation.  :-(  I packed the left over salad from last night (baby spinach, herbs, pears, walnuts, dried cranberries) with a bit of raspberry vinaigrette on the side.  Peanut butter and raspberry jam on oat nut bread for my mid-morning meal at about 10:30 or so.  Love, love, love the nut grinders at Whole Foods.  I seriously cannot live without this pb - it is nothing but peanuts ground up into a creamy deliciousness!  Also on hand is a banana.

When I came home from work, one of those darned donuts made it's way down into my belly again.  Sigh...  I did ignore the Ghiardelli chocolate that someone put out at work though.

Mid-day Snack:
Around 2pm I am ALWAYS hungry.  Today I didn't make a good choice, but someone HAD to eat the last of that pizza from the farmer's market.  So, I did.

It's Monday!  That means that hubby cooks.  One less thing for me to have to wrap my brain around.  Today he made grilled london broil, sauteed broccoli with garlic and oven fries.  I promise I did go back for more broccoli - three more in fact.  Unfortunately, I had to finish up the cooking/grilling as since he did not get up with me this morning, he was in the workout area having his ass handed to him by Shaun T.  All for a good cause I guess.

Another video of the amazing things a hard core workout system can do for your body and health: P90X and Insanity take on MS.  Very inspirational.


  1. I admire that you document what you eat all day! Bravo! How nice you get a Monday break from cooking!

  2. Well, it's been 2 days so far so we'll see if I can keep it up. LOL This is by request from some of my friends on a fitness forum. I'm going to try it for 2 weeks. :)
