The Quest to be Fit

Tracking my journey to better health

It’s a bird, it’s a plane…it’s a B.L.O.A.T.! June 20, 2009

I had a fun new dinner that happens to have the acronym B.L.O.A.T. 

How about another backwards post?!

I just finished this smoothie:  almond milk, lots of strawberries, a drizzle of honey, ice, and some ground flax.

After dinner I washed & organized all of my produce buys from today, and snacked on some of the fruit along the way.  No pic.

Here’s the B.L.O.A.T. fun:  Boca Lettuce Olive Avocado and Tomato sandwich on a whole wheat bolillo roll.  The addition of the olive was especially tasty–I used my stick blender mini food processor attachment to process a few kalamata, herbed green, and one feta stuffed green olive.  Bomb!  A little went a long way 😉  I ate more tomato and avo on the side as you can see.

My body wasn’t satisfied after my first afternoon snack, so I went in for some raisins, almonds, and one piece of dark chocolate.  My tum wasn’t too happy, though.  Not enough fresh stuff today?

Before that I consumed a small bowl of NP GingerZing granola with cinnamon, sliced almonds, raisins, a pinch of salt, and almond milk.  The granola didn’t taste flat 🙂  Yeah!

After a morning of sorting through and moving boxes at my mom’s, lunch of my leftover half burrito was in order.  I also had the rest of my fruit from yesterday.

Breakfast was a yummy bowl of the usual oats 🙂

My pre-butt-crack-o-dawn workout snack was a Kashi TLC Chewy Peanut Butter Peanut bar with some raisins on the side.  I nuked them both and rather liked the warm raisins.

I had a big dinner last night, and never ate after dinner.  I was also dog tired–woof! Dinner was a big ol’ burrito of beans, rice, vegetables, and jalapenos topped with verde sauce.

Prior to and during eating I imbibed in this:

Lunch was leftover pesto pasta from Thursday.  Whoa, super heavy still.  I added more carrots and mushrooms, and even sopped up some of the oil before eating, but felt rather heavy all afternoon from it.

Friday’s breakfast was the same as today’s–yummy oats 🙂  I DID notice a difference when prepping these oats–I don’t think Freddy’s used Bob’s in the bulk bin prior to me buying this batch, as I noticed how much bigger the oats were when pouring them next to the old batch.  I wasn’t smoking crack when I compared bagged Bob’s and bulk before 😉 Bob’s turn out chewier indeed.

This bitch is tired!!  And tomorrow won’t really be any relief for the weary–busy Father’s Day that includes another trip to Freddy’s, eating out at Red Robin for lunch, and cooking dinner for my dad.  I think I’ll get up early again to get working out done with and move on. 

Some random comments/reiterations before I leave you:

  • my body needs lots of fresh food daily and I feel sluggish/bad if I don’t get it
  • I can’t tolerate heavy/greasy/fatty/creamy meals any more
  • I love fruit and it loves me 🙂
  • I often forget to buy organic at the store even though I’m consciously trying to buy more and more organic
  • washing fruit/veg immediately and getting it put away neatly is a godsend for the week ahead
  • my house is a mess and I don’t feel like cleaning
  • I hate the smell of mayonnaise
  • Lily won’t leave me alone and it’s annoying me

Toodles!

  1. I have noticed the same things! I have to have at least one meal that is raw containing fresh fruits and veggies. Otherwise I feel sort of “off” for that day.

    Heavy greasy stuff kills my insides. I can have a few bites but then I’m done and don’t want anymore.

    I try to buy organic but sometimes it’s just not budget friendly.
