Challenge, Kale, and Cookies

Hey Cool Cats! And when I say "Cool" I mean freezing! It is so freaking cold today brrrrrrrrr

I have been snuggled under the covers for most of the day. I only come out to eat and workout lol.

Eats & Workouts

Ayer I worked at the gym and had no urge to get out of bed which almost made me late. I was in such a rush to get out of the house, that I didn't notice of patch of ice on the sidewalk and slipped. I think I pulled something in my left leg, I am in need of some Yoga.

While at the gym I had Chobani Peach Yogurt for breakfast. I was so consumed in paperwork that I never got a chance to workout. After work, I called the mechanic to see if he could check out my radio but he was under the weather so we decided to do it today. I ended up going to the supermarket and picked up some goodies which included Cookies and Kale chips! 

I was starving by the time I came home and heated up the last of my leftovers. I think I took a nap after but I can't remember which prob means that I did lol. Later in the evening I did Jillian's Boost Your Metabolism and some toning and burned 550 Calories.

For din din, I could not WAIT to have Kale Chips! I coated them in EVOO and Salt and tossed them in the oven for about 15 minutes. I paired it with Tofu baked in Honey, Mustard, BBQ Sauce, and Mayo (to thin out the Honey), and Cranberry and Apple Dressing. This was a fabulous dinner! I am in love with Kale Chips!!!!! For dessert I had some Oatmeal Cookies which are only 120 Calories for 2. 

Later in the evening, I had Protein Cookie Dough.


This morning I waited for the mechanic to call me but he never did so I decided to cook Breakfast. I had Pumpkin (spice) Pancakes with 1/2 a Banana, PB, and Honey with my usual coffee....I heart Sundays! 

I think I took a nap again but l don't recall lol. I called my mechanic and got his voicemail, I think he is trying to make me crazy! I didn't have any umph to do anything but I knew I had to workout. I cut the rope that had me tied to the couch and decided to get my workout on lol. I did Jillian's Wii game which focused on a total body workout. She seriously made me 2 sets of 60 oblique Crunches! And 100 Bicycles! I don't think Jil Jil likes me. A normal person would have stopped there but I am not normal and decided to do "I want those abs" and "I want those arms" and burned a total of 450 Calories.

After my workout, I refueled with a Pastele with Ketchup for comfort food.

Right now I am cooking a huge pot of beans and rice for the week...I think that packing my own lunch is better for my waist line. 

Grrrr my mechanic JUST called and said he would do it during the week...grrrrr...inhale...exhale...inhale...exhale....sigh

Have a great Sunday!

  4. girlfriend you pancakes look DELISH! lovin the kale..i havent made chips in a while.. this is a sign that its time!

  5. Yummy looking eats. I really could go for some chobani, but they don't sell it here.

  6. Breathe love :) I've been telling myself that all day! Awesome workouts as usual. These kale chips seems popular - I would think they would just wilt - who knew ?! take care of that calf chick :)

  7. aww slipping on ice is no good!
    where i went to college it would get supahh icy and i wore heels every day, because i was sure that they acted as ice picks to keep me from falling over.
    hope your leg feels ok!

  8. You are loca! Look at all your exercise hard work! Cuh-razy! Great job on a healthy start to the year!

  9. I need to try Kale chips too! And I'm going to try a green smoothie tomorrow for the first time :-).

  10. Be careful on that ice!

    Great eats. It looks like one of your hotcakes is smiling at me!

  11. I think I am going to attempt making tofu for the first time tomorrow! Yours looks delicious!

  12.'re making me cold just reading your blog! Good for you preparing your food ahead of time. Yes, packing your lunch is a much better idea. Making time to do that is fantastic.

    I've never had kale chips, and I always say I will make them. I have to! I 2010...I will!

  13. I've heard so much about the Jillian Michael's video! If I hadn't been embarrassingly unsuccessful with workouts videos in the past, I'd order it! I had Chobani this morning, too. I am OBSESSED with the stuff! Oh, and sorry for assuming the cutie was your daughter, though it sounds like you wouldn't mind if she were ;) Hope you had a great weekend!

  14. Your workouts are quite awesome! Lots of toning. I love ab work, and I bet Jillian loves to make it HURT!

    Those kale chips look very yummy!
    <3 jess

  15. I've tried kale chips but I always end up burning them. :-(
    I slipped on ice, too! The good thing about slipping on ice (if there is a good thing) is that usually you are so thickly covered with clothing that it doesn't hurt as much. I hope you're fine!

  16. I'm sorry about your car and the mechanic...they can be frustrating.

    Whenever I hear kale chips now, I'm going to think of your sister making fun of us for craving veggies haha. Good times :D

  17. do you like your new pots?
    I hope it is warmer today, I have things to do out there!

  18. Speaking to a mechanic about a radio? Taking a Nap during the day?, Ready-made Honey, Mustard and BBQ Sauce and Mayo???

    And why beans and rice for the whole week? What is wrong with getting up 10 minutes earlier and making a nice fresh salad???

    You and I, need to TALK! lol.

  19. I put kale chips on my list to try next week. I want to make a bunch of new recipes, I'm getting bored with food again!
