Phantom Farter

I'm reporting to you live from Sunny (YES, SUNNY) Ohio today. The weather is gorgeous, the snow has melted and people of all ages have been rejoicing wildly in the streets. You can smell the sweet scent of Spring in the air. It's ripe aroma has caused mass delirium amongst the locals! It has spread the disgusting disease known as "joy and laughter" like wildfire. Showing no mercy to even women and the children. I myself have been afflicted by this "disease" and my face is sore from all the smiling. AHHHH! I LOVE THE SUN!

BREAKFAST (meal #1) at 9:00am.

I welcomed the sun with my new favorite oatmeal combo.
  • 1/2 cup old fashioned oats
  • 1/4 wheat bran
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • dash pumpkin pie spice
  • pinch salt
Topped with.....
  • 1 tbs flax
  • 2 tbs sugar free cherry preserves
  • 1 tbs Better N. Peanut Butter

Like dessert in a bowl. I kid you not. How can anyone hate oatmeal? The concept of such insane hate blows my mind!

LUNCH (meal #2) at 12:15pm.

One of my favorite at work lunches ever. Spicy breakfast wrap. LOVE!
  • 4 egg whites
  • 1 whole wheat and flax FlatOut
  • 1 cup spinach
  • 2 tbs hummus
  • Drizzle of Sriracha

Gently rolled together to produce a perfectly wrapped, sexy, spicy, amazing lunch!! I could eat these every day! This had me full for hours.

On our break, we made the now monthly pilgrimage (CRACK RUN) to Super Walmart to stock up on Greek yogurt. I've got an addiction and I need to feed it! I picked up some chocolate Oikos to try as well as some plain Dannon Greek yogurt. I also picked up a non Greek variety. Walmart's off brand name had a banana cream pie flavor and it had me INTRIGUED! I had to get some.

SNACK (meal #3) at 4:00pm.

I tried the chocolaty crack (Oikos) that I picked up at lunch today. So what did I think? Eh, not bad. I think I prefer the plain. It was good but not as creamy and the flavor was a TAD artificial. I had it with a bit pomegranate granola. Trust me, I ate it all and will eat the others as well. NEVER HATE ON OIKOS!

I was feeling pumped for the gym today. No idea why. As a general rule I LOATHE Cardio day! However, I now have the power of my amazing Polar watch which makes me want to keep pushing to see how many calories I can burn. I'm telling you. This thing is MAGICAL motivation! I made SURE to turn it on correctly this time so I could track ALL of my progress correctly!

I was covered in sweat. The workout felt like a long one. Probably due to the SILENT and FOUL smelling Phantom Cardio Room Farter. OMG! Whoever it was kept doing it. Over and over and over again. You couldn't get away from the aroma. It was OUT OF CONTROL BAD! It had my eyes stinging. HA! Soooooo disgusting!

SNACK (meal #4) at 7:15pm.

I tried a new to me flavor of whey protein powder today. I picked it up at Walmart for only $12. Can't beat that! Chocolate peanut butter just sounded too good to pass up.
  • 1 cup unsweetened vanilla Almond Breeze
  • 1 scoop chocolate peanut butter whey protein powder
  • 1 banana
  • 1 1/2 cups ice

ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS! I love this new flavor. SO glad I decided to pick it up to try. Mmmmmm!

DINNER (meal #5) at 9:00pm

I was craving Tofu. And a salad. I decided to marry the two together this evening in a little kitchen experiment. MUWAHAHAHAHAHA!

I seasoned the tofu with sea salt, pepper, key lime seasoning mix and spray butter. I tossed them into a 450 degree oven for 30 minutes, flipping them once. They came out nice and golden.

I tossed them on a bed of crisp romaine and baby spinach. Toppings included green bell pepper, avocado, tomato, garlic & sea salt sunflower seeds, Spray Butter and Sriracha. Delicious!

Lost was on earlier tonight and we have it recorded. My endless love of confused jungle mania and mayhem continues. Only 10 more episodes left. So exciting! I have to watch it right now!! I can't stand it anymore!!! ;)

Bye for now.....

Ewwww gym farters!! They seem to be everywhere
Your eats are great though (as usual). I completely agree with you, I also wonder why some people hate oatmeal. My boyfriend once said that it looks like dirt and I gave him the evil eye. ;)
