Yesterday was such a busy day at work! We had meeting after meeting after meeting. Hmm yup, three meetings!! I managed to eat some low-sugar apple cinnamon instant oatmeal with a banana nuked in there after meeting #1. Fluffiness!! I am OUT of frozen fruit and fresh fruit and probably won’t get to the store until Thursday night. HORRORS!!! No yo-mess until then 😦

You all pretty excited to check out my lunch, huh?? Well I ate this puppy after running to the store for one more thing for my mom and about 5 minutes before another meeting. This is the other half of the chicken from Tuesday. Look at how paper thin it is!!! I also had a bunch of raw broccoli on the side, this serving times 5 maybe? I love raw veggies but right then my stomach was thinking HMMM…

I skipped the veggie pasta because there wasn’t enough time! Instead, I snacked on some trail mix a little later. There were a couple almonds in this fuzzy handful that got picked out before I snapped a pic 🙂

I also had a blueberry z-bar. I think this might have been the first time I tried this flavor and I loved it! So much more than honey graham or chocolate brownie.

After trying to finish up a few things once the clients peaced out, I headed over to Steph’s house for Twilight time!!  She has been wanting me to see this movie FOREVER and our opposite schedules have been making that impossible.  Anyway, she got me reading the books a few weeks back and that’s when I knew I had to make this movie date happen!  I needed to see all that deadly luurve firsthand 🙂

I settled down with a small glass of red.

Steph made some lovely whole wheat crust pizzas.  We did one with tomato sauce, very light cheese and spinach & another with pesto, cheese and sliced tomatoes. I had a piece of each!

We also had side salads of broccoli slaw and shredded cabbage topped with balsamic vin. Aren’t these black & white bowls cute??

The movie was good! We couldn’t stop talking about how the clothes were seriously wack. Can’t vampires wear better threads?!? Also, makeup job was not so hot.  But I loved the awkwardness between Bella & Edward, high school hotness!! Steph whipped up a batch of chocolate chip cookies for post-movie consumption.  I had two of these little delights. Love hot dessert!

Then Steph, her boyfriend Josh and I took a run down memory lane and discussed psycho exes. Josh & I were battling stories, but I like to think that I clearly won.  It was so good seeing my girlie!  Photo OPP!!!

So I got home a little after 11 and found out that you CAN do the shred that late at night! I did half but then got sidetracked by some roommate bonding, which is always #1!! I ended up continuing the cookie streak by eating THREE of these cookies. They are so good and will be marching out of our place tomorrow so I don’t eat them all!

Today I woke up right with my alarm and instead of hitting snooze, I finished the last half of the shred. Woop woop! At the office, I made a v. pathetic yogurt mess. It’s all one color! I just had bananas and figs for this one.

Luckily lunch was much more colorful! I tried to hold off on eating but was tummy-growling hungry and dug in right before noon.  I ate my leftover chicken fajitas with some 100-cal pack guac and two tortillas.  I snagged one tortilla from the restaurant (prob uber unhealthy) and one from my pack of La Tortilla Factory (very healthy!!!).  Everyone in my office couldn’t stop saying how delicious my food smelled and I had to agree!

After eating, I strolled over to the Farmer’s Market and picked up an eggplant, string beans, green onions, radishes, 3 packs of strawberries, carrots, and cherries for $12. Love the Farmer’s Market! I dug into some of the strawberries and cherries.  My breakfast is gonna be bangin tomorrow with this fruit!!

A little later, I had my favorite Cherry Pie Larabar for some pre-workout fuel.

Yes! I finally made it to the gym for 30 minutes on the elliptical AND did the shred when I got home. YAY! Tonight for dinner, I made an awesome stir fry using some of the stuff I got from the Farmer’s Market, plus tofu and shirataki noodles. BOMB! Julia came home planning to make a stir fry too so I got to steal some of her delicious sweet chili sauce, which worked perfectly drizzled on top!

It’s HOT in LA right now. People deal with heat by eating an ice pop.

Cats deal with heat by chillaxin in the bathroom sink!
