Pilates and Burritos

So, I just washed all of my clothes in warm water by accident. By the time I realized, the cycle was 2 minutes away from being done.  Are all of my jeans going to be tiny now?!?!? I hope they didn’t shrink! (Mommyyyy!!!! Help!!)

Anyway, check out my fabulous, new mug from Uncommon Grounds:

Don’t be jealous. I know you want it. I’m a little obsessed with everything and anything Starry Night. I knew I had to have it as soon as I saw it. It’s my new favorite mug.

Yesterday morning started with a Jillian Michaels butt-kicking. I sweated it out (and died a little) to level 2 of the 30 Day Shred. (I almost typed 300 day shred by accident. That would be intense) Then I ran around my apartment like a crazy person trying to get ready for class. Do you talk to yourself and then yell at yourself for taking to yourself? Or is it just me? It’s probably just me.

After throwing broccoli all over my kitchen and spilling hot sauce on the floor, I managed to make one of my favorite breakfasts:

Broccoli Eggs with an Arnold Sandwich Thin

Then it was off to class. Don’t ask me how I got there on time because I have no idea. I probably had eggs all over my face.

Jeff and I had big plans to go to the Co-op after class.  I did school work procrastinated in my school’s cafe until Jeff was out of class.

I snacked on Popchips while people-watching and reading the school newspaper.

On our way to the co-op, I snacked a little more on a Kind Bar and a banana.


We spent $28 on groceries. After watching Food, Inc., Jeff and I decided that we want to do the majority of our grocery shopping at the Co-op and at Farmer’s Markets. We got so much food for under $30.

  • Broccoli
  • Bananas
  • Tomatoes
  • Yellow Pepper
  • Zucchini
  • Cucumber
  • Potatoes
  • Baby Carrots
  • Spring Mix
  • Shredded Unsweetened Cocout
  • Flax Seed
  • Wasa Crackers
  • Organic Cinnamon Apple Sauce
  • Hummus
  • Soup

AMAZING! If you live around Albany, please go to the Honest Weight Food Co-op! You won’t be sorry and you’ll be supporting a local business.

When we got home, I had a very late lunch.

I had my leftover Morrocan Curried Rice and Lentil Soup from Tuesday night with celery sticks and an Arnold Sandwich Thin (I ate the other half after I took this picture).

Then I was off to a Pilates class at my gym. I haven’t been to Pilates in a couple months because I didn’t have time last semester and then I was away. I was really looking forward to going last night because I love the instructor. I was kind of sad when a substitute instructor walked into the studio. It was a good class anyway. My abs almost exploded.

Jeff and I decided to make burritos for dinner last night.

While Jeff heated the refried beans and the brown rice, I chopped up some green pepper, tomato, and onion and sauteed it in a pan with a little canola oil and garlic powder.

I topped the mixture with some shredded cheddar and popped the whole thing in the oven for 3 or 4 minutes. (Also added chopped, uncooked spinach on top)

We had corn on the side. (Jeff had corn and rice in his burrito AND on the side). It was a great dinner!

For dessert, I ate this:

Half an Arnold Sandwich Thin with PB and Dark Chocolate Chips on top. (Heated in the microwave for 5 second) YUM!

I’m off to an interview! Wish me luck!

Where is your favorite place to grocery shop?

Have a great Thursday!

  1. Good luck at the interview!! I’ve never been to the Coop and I’ve really been anxious to go lately. A lot of the people I worked with for the NY Vegetarian expo work at the co-op and it sounded like fun!!
    Is there a parking lot/parking?


  2. Those eggs look so delicious! Perfectly cooked!!

    I love starry night too … probably my favourite painting.

    My favourite place to grocery shop is Old Fashioned Foods … it is tiny though, and you can’t get everything there (no produce). I wish we had a Whole Foods or Trader Joe’s in Sask.

  3. That coop looks amazing! We don’t have them in the UK but I am heading to the farmers market this weekend.

    I am definitely someone who yells at themseld. Actually, I think I yell more at Jillian Michaels when I am doing her workouts- those DVD’s are hard!
