Cardio Pizza got a little make over last night. I think this new layout looks much better. It looks more neat and organized. Or maybe that’s just one of my OCD thoughts (I am obsessed with organizing and straightening things!!)

It seems as though I am not the only one with a nibbling habit at night time when alone. Thank you for sharing your input! Last night I didn’t listen to my cravings…I wanted something sweet, but opted for another slice of chicken pot pie simply because I don’t want food to go to waste. Well, after eating the pot pie, I still had a sweet craving and made a big bowl of cereal. That satisfied me. I just should have listened to my cravings in the first place! Lesson learned…
A woman who knows a lot about listening to craving is Bethenny Frankel from the Real Housewives of NYC (I am a big fan of this show!)
On the Today Show she talks about curbing cravings with healthier alternatives: View HERE! I love Bethany, She has great food ideas and I love her witty sense of humor!
**Have you read her book Naturally Thin?
If so, what did you think?**
I have read the book and I liked it. While I do think she eats very little (she takes about 3 bites of food and is done…eh, I can see that with some foods, but not for every meal!) But, I like the basic concepts she has in the book, which is listening to your body and honoring your hunger and cravings.
Thursday’s Workout and Meals
This morning started out with a 2 mile walk with the dogs. A woman that I usually see on our walks told me I should be a dog trainer because my dogs were so well behaved…hah! They had her quite fooled today! 😉 The little monsters hammed it up for her, but a few minutes later Sophia darted at a bird and Boo picked up what looked like a small tree to carry in his mouth during the walk. But, I love my pups anyways!
Here they are pretending to be angels
I wish I were more creative with my breakfasts, but I just know what I love and don’t want to sway from it!
Today’s breakfast consisted of...
Today was a cardio day, which I always enjoy. I started with 25 minutes on the Arc Trainer and then switched to the treadmill for another 25 minutes. I did 20 minutes at a 3.0 speed and a 10% incline and cooled down the last 5 minutes. Was a nice cardio session!
Lunch today is a vegetarian stir fry! My stir fry included the following:
- Brown Rice
- Broccoli Stir Fry Mix (frozen veggies)
- About 1 tbsp sesame seed oil
- Drizzle of Agave Nectar
- Garlic seasoning
- Red Pepper Flakes
First, I cooked the rice according to the directions. Then I sauteed the veggies and chickpeas in the sesame seed oil and seasoned em’ up. Once all cooked, I drizzled everything with a bit of agave nectar for a sweet finish.
Well, I’m off for a lunch time walk with a co-worker! It’s beautiful here in South Georgia! 🙂
What are you having for lunch today?
