I Have a New Boyfriend!

Ha did I get your attention?!?! I was kidding about the boyfriend part BUT I DO have a new partner! A running partner!

The rain finally stopped today and I was able to go outside for a jog on the track. I have been so anxious to use my new Nike+ and finally got the chance to! Before I went on my run, I wanted to calibrate my walk and run so that it could be more accurate. Each calibration was a distance of 400 meters and after that I was able to start my workout.

My run this morning was a little painful because I think I injured my left foot on Saturday night walking a mile in my Ugg boots…these boots are definitely NOT made for walking lol. The ball of my foot has been in pain ever since that night.

I jogged 1.92 Miles at a pace of 10’57” and according to this I burned a total of 229 Calories but that does not include the calibration and stretching. I won’t use this for calories; I think my HR monitor is much more accurate for that.


I ended up doing a total of 2.66 Miles …


I am a little confused though…I did the calibration for both walking and running but for some reason it is telling me that my run is “uncalibrated” but I am positive that I did it this morning…I hope that it’s not defective. I will do it again, the next time I go for a run. I ended up burning a total of 397 Calories in 35 minutes, including stretch. When I got home I did 10 more minutes of stretching with my Foam Roller and burned an additional 54 Calories.


Ayer for din din I made a delicious Tofu Salad which consisted of Tofu, 2 French Onion Laughing Cow Wedges, Garlic Powder, Hot Szechuan Sauce, Honey Mustard, and Salt (thanks Naomi for introducing this to me!). I then tossed it into a a low carb wrap with Avocado slices. OMG this was so good!


I paired the sammie with Silk Chocolate Soymilk…we had samples of these at the gym and I just had to grab one and thank God that I did because it tasted delish!



This morning I had 1/2 a Banana before my jog.


After my workout I had Kashi Oatmeal with the other 1/2 of my Banana, PB, and a Sprinkle of Chocolate LMM and my usual cafe con leche on the side.


For Lunch I had the Tofu Sammie again, but with only 1 Laughing Cow Wedge…the secret to this Tofu Salad is Garlic! Lots and Lots of Garlic lol


Temptation Challenge

This afternoon I went to Tar-Jay and Old Navy with my family and by the time we were done shopping it was already dinner time. My sister decided to get McDonald's but I fought the urge and instead made din din when I got home. I did steal some of her fries when we were in the car lol…I am only human.

For din din I made Pumpkin Spiced Pancakes with PB, Lite Syrup and a small Banana. Sometimes breakfast for din din is all you need to complete your day =)


Damn where did the time go? it’s already 9 pm….

Have a great night loves!
