May 10th Food and Exercise Journal

by Alison on May 11, 2010

It’s Monday again, you know Mondays seem to come every seven days, does anyone else find this fact annoying?  Can’t Mondays come once a month?  Monday for me is chore day, laundry, cleaning, dishes that I never quite got around to over the weekend, etc. BORING!  I had a few errands to do as well, blah.

Ben worked  a 12 hour day so after taking him to work I hopped on the stationary bike and pedaled 13 miles in 40 minutes then did a full body workout on the bowflex, my knee was a bit sore when it rubbed on my pants and I have a gorgeous purple bruise, but I’ll live.  The ankle doesn’t hurt at all, I have twisted it so many times it no longer even swells, which is good for my running later this week.  I probably should have taken the dogs for a walk but it was raining so well yea it didn’t happen…  Nice thing about the rain is all the new stuff I planted this weekend didn’t have to be watered but weather reports are saying no more rain for the week, we’ll see…

Eggwhite Scramble, Strawberries and Bagel Thin

It is Meatless Monday today so for breakfast I had an eggwhite scramble with a bit of salsa on top, a bagel thin and nonfat latte, not sure why this seems to have become a Monday habit (the latte) but it’s a great way to get in my dairy in one shot.  For lunch I had leftover falafel and salad, I ran out of regular pitas so I used the gyro kind (pocketless pitas) which was good and those will make great bases for pita pizzas.  For dinner I made a Penne Primavera with zucchini, red peppers and asparagus, very tasty, with a small piece of garlic bread, Ben got a couple of big pieces.

Glad your ankle is feeling good! I hate Monday’s too…they do seem to come around more than any other day! BOO! At least Tuesday is almost over now 🙂

Hooray for the ankle! Just be careful and hope the run goes well!

The Penne Primavera looks yummy. I love zucchinis. Maybe I’ll make some tonight!
