Work Your Magic

First and foremost, Pilates this morning went well. However, I am glad that I planned to go to spinning afterwards because I didn’t feel like I got much of a workout…then again, I have heard that is typical of Pilates and that you will feel it after a few classes/days, so I’ll stick with it! Spinning was great too; but as I was leaving the gym, I realized that my upper left shoulder/neck HURT. I pulled SOMETHING up there and have been on a heating pad all day on the couch. My ear/sinus aches felt 90% better this morning, but now I am back to a low 70%....hopefully this ibuprofen will kick in soon!

Okay, that’s enough Debbie Downer for one day…Time for some Good Eats!

Breakfast before going to the gym consisted of 2 sets of 365 Blueberry Mini Waffles (half with PB and half with FF Vanilla Yogurt). I also had an orange, cherries & grapes (marinated in POM Juice overnight!).
I finally got to try the new Stonyfield Farm Organic Raspberry Lemonade Yogurt. It was so refreshing, creamy and spot on with the sweetness. While I could taste the Raspberry Lemonade essence, I think it could use to be a bit stronger.
Lunch was delicious! I sliced some pan seared seasoned chicken breasts and layed them atop a bed of lettuce and broccoli stem shreds (LOVE these!). Carrots and Red Bell Pepper finished off the colorful appearance!
I spritzed it all with this tasty stuff... (notice who's face is on the TV! haha)
After lunch, I hit the couch and had a lazy day of not feeling too great...

Kashi Dark Mocha Almond Bar :D
A little bit of Corn Chex while reading blogs!
Penny's Low Fat Desserts Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookie
Overall, the chocolaty flavor is just perfect! Once again, this Big & DELICIOUS cookie was soft and dense. Ahh… I want another one right now!
The huge peanut butter chips add an amazing peanut butter kick that radiated through each bite, even when the cookie was mixed with all of that other jazz! Now that is some PB power!! There are also mini chocolate chips that provide a nice crunchy element.
MMMMM! That would be 1/2 a frozen nanner and FF Vanilla Yogurt....OH BUDDY! :)
I had a great dinner planned; but honestly, I just want to lay on the couch with my pups, watch Gilmore Girls and PRAY that I feel better! I have my Pre-Op for my eye surgery on Thursday and they won't look at me if I'm sick because they can't do surgery on a sick person! :/ Cereal it is...
Kashi's New "SnickerDoodle Cookie" Heart to Heart Cereal
I do have a sweet potato that I sliced and seasoned yesterday, so I think I’ll make some sweet potato fries later on and try to relish in their Vitamin C goodness…Or I might be more realistic, save the taters for tomorrow and call my mom and ask her to pick me up some FroYo on her way home....I think it has magical healing powers :D
Side Note: I usually take multiple pictures of each dish in case they don't look good when they are blown up on the computer screen. Well today, they all looked good on the camera screen and NONE of them looked good on the computer screen. I think I may need a new camera?!
There will be a massive Penny's Low Fat Desserts Post sometime in the near future...You won't want to miss it! ;)

  10. Ooh sorry about your shoulder! I hope it feels better soon. Oooh I know about the pre-surgery sickness freakouts! The same thing happened with my rhinoplasty--if I was sick, they wouldn't do the surgery. My sister had a cold, so I was spraying lysol and taking airborne like a maniac!
