Breaking the Salmon’s Back

Posted Nov 11 2008 2:19pm

Thanks everyone for all the super motivating comments!!!!! I have been reminding myself all day about tonight’s class and just ate a pretty hefty snack to get ready! But first…….

Breakfast was pumpkin banana oatmeal made with 1/2 cup oats, 1 cup silk lite vanilla, 1/3 cup canned pumpkin, 1 banana, 1 spoonful almond butter and pom. seeds!


It was SO filling! I have forgotten how filling pumpkin oats are but yesterday I bought two cans of pumpkin so looks like I’ll be eating it for awhile! Breakfast stayed with me until about 9:45, when I broke out the nuts I had packed:


Nuts did the trick and I ate my DELICIOUS sandwich around noon…..I usually eat around 11:15 or 11:30 but I wanted to push it back a little because I’ll be eating a later dinner because of my spinning class tonight!


This was seriously the best sandwich I have ever packed. 2 slices of Arnold’s protein bread, 3 slices boars head turkey, 1 light laughing cow cheese wedge, 2 bread & butter pickles and 2 tbsp spicy hummus! Kabam!!!

And since I am working out later than usual and at a higher intensity, I chowed down at snacktime—-half of a freshly baked bagel (baked by yours truly this morning), toasted with pb&j:


It was pretty large. The raw dough weight was 4 oz, making this a whopper!



Aside from baking, I also broke a salmon’s back:


Sorry if that’s gross but you have to do it before filleting it….I won’t get into details! haha!

I also baked TONS of olive focaccia:


And did lots of everyday stuff like bake rolls, make pizza dough and bake cookies. We got these tiny apples and pears in from our purveyor and I thought they would make a cute picture:


How cute is that??! The strawberry is larger than the apple and the same size as the pear. Hehe

And I have good news!!!!!!! I can go home for Thanksgiving!!!!!!!!! On Thanksgiving day I will be working probably from 4 or 5 am until 3 pm, and I think I’m just going to haul my butt and drive straight home to my parent’s house so I can get there by 6:00 and have Thanksgiving dinner with them….and then I’ll have the next two days off. Not ideal by any means, but you do what you gotta do! 

And more good news!! LOOK what was on my doorstep!!!!


I love you Chobani!!!!! I am so so so so so psyched!!!! I have never tried a flavored Chobani before so I cannot WAIT to break one open! And they don’t sell them here in Vero since we don’t have a Whole Foods. I will be reviewing the flavored ones as I eat them so look for that to come!

I’m off to continue to motivate myself for the gym by getting into my workout clothes….see you tonight!
