Alrighty, so as I said in my previous post, today I wanted to blog about the food Ive eaten today to give you an idea of what I'm doing here. This morning I started my day with a banana and a green smoothie. See below for the recipe used. Post smoothie I headed over to the gym for my shoulder workout and cardio session with Lorie. We had a great workout today. I enjoy our workouts so stinking much. :) For lunch I had a great pasta dish I came up with all on my own! What I did was use 100% whole wheat pasta, and then created my own "sauce." I sauteed some minced garlic with a whole onion, then added celery and a can of unsalted diced tomatoes. I added a ton of spices; garlic powder, basil, and an Italian medley made by Ms. Dash. It turned out nicely and made enough for a few meals! I also drank another smoothie, same recipe as before.
So, for dinner I felt like I needed a few extra carbs since I ran 4 miles this evening. I ate another small serving of my pasta as well as a salad. I got this great dressing at whole foods that is legal and pretty tasty. I was having a really hard time with the salads initially because I am a ranch girls through and through, and ranch dressing is completely illegal!

 Just when I think I cant do this and nothing tastes good anymore, I remember my raw peanut butter and 
mini pitas! The minis are 100%whole grain and therefore completely legal. Best part? 5 whole little pitas constitute a serving. Together these taste amaaaazing! Also, I got some organic green apples and I have been snacking on those like crazy today! They are so sour and so yummy!
I have been working this week and going non-stop. I am so tired and the kids are finally in bed. I am gonna have to call it a night. Goodnight!
