Even though it’s my last day to sleep in before school starts tomorrow, I was up around 6:45 despite only getting six hours of sleep. I decided to go to the gym before breakfast so I wouldn’t have it hanging over my head all day. I’m so glad I did! I did 30 minutes on the elliptical, 20 minutes on the Stairmaster, and 10 minutes on the elliptical. I meant to do speedwork, but I just wasn’t feeling the whole running thing today.
I wanted my workout to be over with as soon as possible so I could get home to THIS.
I made the single serving bean brownie and served it with pumpkin yogurt- a total repeat of yesterday’s breakfast, but it was exactly what I wanted.
By the way, if you make these, I think sweetener is definitely necessary. I tried making it without it and when I tasted the batter, I wasn’t impressed. Sugar, agave, honey, maple syrup, or Splenda would work. I used a packet of Splenda and it was perfect. I know, I know- I’m going to get cancer.
Lunch involved more beans- refried beans and a black bean burger with plain yogurt, on top of (fresh!) spinach.
I’m all out of Jell-o pudding (boo!) so I whipped up a tofu mousse.
Nothing but half a block of silken tofu, cocoa powder, and a little water to smooth things out. Topped with my last Vitatop. These were on sale at Target today, but I didn’t get another pack. Plus, they were only 30 cents cheaper. I resisted 🙂
I did get a running T-shirt for five bucks, though. Score! There’s something about new workout clothes that make me almost EXCITED to work out. 5 bucks for a shirt or 4 dollars for muffin tops? The choice was clear, friends.
After an afternoon of shopping, I fixed myself a little snack.
Apples, peanut flour butter, and cherries. My cherries are almost gone!
I snacked away on this plate while working on my blog a little. I really disliked my header and my background, but I hadn’t gotten around to fixing them until today. I’m still not one hundred percent happy with them, but it’s a start.
It’s actually really ironic that I have a blog, because I am probably the most technologically challenged person you will ever meet. It took me over three hours just to put together a new header!
Speaking of technology…
1. I got a Twitter account! I actually have had a personal one for a while. I signed up a few years ago when my favorite CNN anchor, Rick Sanchez, started putting people’s tweets at the bottom of the screen during his hour. For the record, he put two of my tweets on the screen and he responded to one of my questions. I had a dream we were engaged one night and told him about it, and he put it on TV! I actually screamed out loud. I also asked him how tall he was, and he responded that he was “5’10 and shrinking.” Yes, I have a minor obsession with him. I still haven’t forgiven CNN for firing him… but anyway.
You can follow me here! My name is ‘kateiscooking.’ I’ve found a lot of blogger’s twitters, but for some reason I can’t search for anyone, so I know there are a lot of people I haven’t followed yet. Come find me!
2. I also discovered Google Reader and Google calendars… my newest obsession. I’m actually having a panic attack because my Google Reader is down! How did I just discover this?! I pretty much always have my Google Reader open so if I comment 10 seconds after you publish your post, don’t be alarmed 🙂
3. I updated my recipes page!
I tore myself away from the computer for a minute to heat up some leftover kale, onion, and potato frittata.
Now I’m working on my next project- finding out how to self host my blog. I am absolutely clueless about this. I’m scared that I’m going to lose everything!
I have a to do list a mile long to get ready for class tomorrow. I don’t want this break to be over!
Does anyone have any advice for self-hosting a blog?
