Carrots, Green Beans, Asparagus oh my

November 17, 2010

Joey wakes up an hour before me on Tuesdays but without a phone I had no alarm and just decided to get up with him (although truth be told he was still in bed when I left to go work out).

I was not in the mood for cold or wind at 7:30 am so I just stuck to the treadmill.  Have I mentioned my knee has been feeling stiff once in a while?  It’s my surgery knee too.  Uh oh…

Made it through 3 miles and all of the day walking around before it randomly started hurting around 6 pm.  Very weird.

Also completed Day 1 of Week 2 for my abs and arm challenge.  30 push ups and 80 sit ups — I didn’t know I did that many!!  Awesome.

After getting in a good sweaty workout is was oat time.

Our bananas are not ripe enough yet so I’ve been mixing in 1/4 cup applesauce at the very end to sweeten and fluff up my oats.  I tasted a spoonful today and after mmm-ing and ahh-ing I realized it’s not unsweetened.  No wonder it’s so good!

Also in the mix was 1/4 cup pumpkin.  I planned on adding some spices but totally forgot.  Oh well.

Topped with:

  • Mixed berry compote — almost out and pretty excited to try a new jam
  • 1T cinnamon granola
  • 1t maple syrup

While my oats were cooking away on the stove I was chopping/prepping veggies for lunch.

Tossed in a little olive oil, salt and pepper and roasted on 400* for 20 minutes.

Paired with more pasta nests.  I tossed the 3 remaining nests.  I’m getting sick of them and getting no help in finishing them off!

Roasted carrots may be one of my new favorite things.  Although that’s not really fair because I over roasted the asparagus and green beans and they were more like shriveled veggies than roasted.

After I had eaten and roasted to my little heart’s desire I headed out to get my hair cut.

What do you think?

Yes, I am in my car, stopped at a red light.  Don’t judge.

Oh, and I packed some pb and g sandwiches for a pre-lunch snack, which I ate in between classes.

So long, un-poked graham.

I’m off to do some paper writing (again).

By the way, I have a new phone, yay!!  It’s ugly gray instead of my old pretty ruby, boo!!  Joey has taken to writing me notes in the absence of texting.  I think I like it better.

Hope your Wednesday is off to a great start (or finish)!

    I hope your knee feels better. That’s weird cause lately an old injury of mine (in my hip) has been getting randomly sore too. Maybe it’s the weather??

    Cute hair! I badly need a haircut.
