Sloppy Wednesday!

Thanks everyone for the birthday wishes, I really love being part of this community, because with my job, I don't get any warm praise or recognition.

Sophie, our puppy, has been getting us up at 5am, although we are used to waking up at 5:30 to workout, now when we wake up at 5am we just play with Sophie, because we know that she will be along until after work.

When I woke up at 5am I was feeling hungry, so I ate two of the blueberry-oat bars from yesterday's post. I can't get over how good these are!

I got to work a little later than I had pre-puppy, because I feel sad leaving her. I ate my breakfast in my office around 8:40. When Steve picked up the cupcake from Whole Foods he also picked up one of my favorite vegan oat scones from the Whole Foods Bakery. I had my scone with as sugarfree jelly sample we had in our pantry and a 100 calorie pack of Justin's Nut Butter, a new brand of nut butters for me that I just ordered from online. This 100 calorie pack is Maple Almond Butter. I loved this flavor, and I love that it comes in little 100 calorie portions. I also ordered some of the larger packets, which have a higher number of calories. I thought it would be a great thing when travelling, especially when we go to Hawaii in August with no meals served on a 9 hour flight!!!

I went to a spin class at noon and in 36 minutes burned 350 calories, my heart rate was high the entire class, it was so intense. When I got back from the gym I ate my lunch. I packed an Ezekiel english muffin, a little container with 2/3 cup morningstar crumbles and 2/3 cup Newman's Own Spaghetti Sauce, and a slice of soy cheese. This was a tasty, quick, and filling lunch. Vegetarian Sloppy Joes:

Around 3:15 I had some grapes to hold me over until dinner.

For dinner we went to Qdoba because I had signed up on their website for thier e-mail list so I got a free entree coupon for my birthday. I also got a coupon for free chips just for signing up for their emails. So if you liked free stuff and Qdoba, sign up. For my entree I had Vegetarian Gumbo which includes rice, beans, tortilla soup, salsa, and tortilla strips. I said no to the cheese and sour cream.

Steve and I shared the free chips:

I missed Pilates because we were at a furniture store, but I picked up some Pilates DVDs from Target so I plan to try to do one today. At home I also had some of the never ending Bruster's cake from last Sunday.
Have a great day, see you tonight!

I really like your blog, you do such a good job at fitting in healthy food and fitness into your busy lifestyle!

I'm currently an undergrad and hope to go to law school after I graduate. What kind of law do you practice?

Thanks in advance!

That scone looks crazy delicious. I just wrote down "Justin's Nut Butters" on my notepad, because I think the 100-calorie portioned packets are a genius idea! Thanks!

I've never been to Qdoba, but I see it around. Perhaps I'll check out that deal!
