I love fruits and veggies!!

Once again I enjoyed an iced coffee on the way to work.
Once at work I ate at wonderful fruit salad. We still have so much fruit I have hardly touched yet (watermelon, honeydew, and a bunch of apples, plus a lot more grapes, bananas, peaches and berries). I am crazy about fruit!
I knew that I was going to do weights at lunch so around 11am I had some dark chocolate Figamajigs. I bought some of these to take to Hawaii but didn't eat any there. I really liked them, although for 150 calories they didn't really fill me up.

At noon I went and did about 40 minutes of upper body weights and abs.

After the gym I had a Gardenburger (the Vegan grilled fake chicken one). I love these and it only has 80 calories. I had mine on an english muffin with guacamole, lettuce, and tomatoes.

Extra tomatoes:

I also enjoyed a Sugar free Vanilla pudding snack with some oreo pieces that came with a yogurt, but wasn't used with the Yogurt. This was so yummy that I may email Kraft and recommend that they include mix-ins with their pudding snacks.

I ran out of food at work and was so hungry, that I asked by husband to pick up a bar from Rite Aid for me to eat on the ride home. So at 6pm I ate a Fiber One Bar (no picture).

For dinner I made stir fry vegetables with brown rice and a Helen's Kitchen Tofu Steak. I also was eating the veggies out of the pan while I was trying to cook them:)

Close up....so yummy....
For dessert I had a weight watchers ice cream sandwich, vita-muffin brownie, a tsp of peanut butter, and some Hershey's lite chocolate syrup.

I didn't get too much cardio today, but I took two short walks with Sophie (one before work and one after), did 10 minutes on our treadmill and then had the round trip .66 miles to the gym. I'd rather have a good cardio session daily, but my weight session was good today, so I guess that will have to do!

Until tomorrow....

Yum your fruit looks good.

I agree about the figamajigs, not filling. I eat them more for curing a sweet tooth and then it only takes like 3 or 4.

The fruit salad looks PERFECT! Yum.

I really like Figamajigs, but you're right - they definitely aren't a filler food.

I am definitely going to have to look for those Gardenburgers! They are such a good size for only 80 cals!

Argh, I need to try those Vitamuffins!! They always look so yummy :o)

Thanks again for the Moosewood recipe!!

Having too much fruit is a wonderful "problem" to have :-) I can't stop this time of year! I hear you on wanting a good cardio session, but doing weights is really important too, I've found. It helps me have *better* cardio days because I've got the muscle to power through it. How does the Gardenburger taste? I had a similar-sounding "burger" from another company and it was really dry...

Thanks for your comment on my blog! It really is hard balancing everything with work (pleasing partners) and getting some sanity in between. We'll both make it though.

The fruit in the first picture looks unbelieveable! I may have to re-work my lunch to incorporate more fruit now because you made me crave it.
I love that you have a sweet tooth like me!
