House arrest

Posted Feb 02 2010 11:02pm

S’s car is brokenagainso he took mine to go to work today.  Which means I am stranded at home.

I was really craving eggs this morning.  Breakfast was an omelette (3 eggs) with veggie sausage and some cheese:


It was a nice break from my carb-loading I have been doing every morning for the last month or so.

Which left room for my carb-filled lunch… leftover sushi!


Actuallyit wasn’t all that carb-y.  I just don’t usually eat riceso I feel like it is really carb-y for some reason.  I like the fact that:

  1. I am eating rice
  2. I like the rice (it tastes good in sushi!)

So now I have two places where I can count on rice tasting good.  Rice puddingand sushi.

Mid-afternoon I started to get a little antsy.  I wanted to go to the gymbut of course I couldn’t because I didn’t have my car.  And the more I thought about the fact that I didn’t have my car… the more I actually wanted to go somewhere.  Isn’t that how it always is?  Most daysyou can’t drag my ass out of the house during the day.  I’m workingand I’m lazy and don’t want to change out of my pjs.  But as soon as you take my car away and I can’t go anywhere… all of a sudden I become little miss wannabe-jet-setter.  Ha.

The only way to quelch my cravings to leave the houseof coursewas to drown them in a raspberry pomegranate bar.


Then I was craving chocolate cake and remembered my Vitatops in the freezer!  Haven’t had one of those in a while.  I chose a Chocolate Fig one.


It was goodbut a little dry.  I still like the deep chocolate ones the best.

I don’t give a fig.  That’s what my Daddy used to say.

I was still feeling snacky while waiting for S to get home.  Late afternoon I am always feeling snacky and usually counteract it by going to the gym.  Which of course I couldn’t do.  But I did something just as good…. I broke out Jillian’s 30-day Shred dvd for the first time!

I just did level 1but it was tough.  I didn’t have any problem with the cardio partsand even the ab parts weren’t as hard as I expected (although I was on level 1….)  But the strength moves were tough!  Luckilyat the advice of RebeccaI was ready with my light weights.  Because Jillian does manymany reps and I thought my arms were going to fall off!

I was sweatingand quite proud of myselfwhen I was done.  It was only 20 minutesbut I felt like I got a workout!

Before S got homeI snacked on some cucumber with salsa.


I forgot how much I love salsa!

I had planned and begun preparation for dinner earlier in the day.  I decided to make beef stroganoff in the slow cooker.

I diced up 1/2 an onion and 1/2 a clove of garlic.


Rinsed about a half a package of slice mushrooms,


And threw it all in the slow cookertogether with about a pound of beef cut into cubes1/2 tablespoon of paprikaand 1 teaspoon salt.


I covered and let it cook on low for about 7 hours.  Thenwhen S got homeI mixed together 1/2 cup sour cream and 1 tbsp flour and mixed it into the slow cooker with the beef mixture.  I let that sit for 15 minuteswhile I cooked up some egg noodlesand then served!

And forgot to take a picture.  Sorry :(   Oh wellI’m sure you will get a picture of it tomorrow for lunchbecause I will be eating the leftovers!

Afterwards I had cottage cheese cheesecake pudding with frozen grapes.  I love frozen grapes!


Followed by a little bowl of jelly beans.  Can you believe it?  I actually made myself pour some out into the bowl so that I didn’t eat the entire rest of the container.

I love NOMing on these while I watch the Biggest Loser.


And right before I hit the sackI had some sour patch kids and swedish fish – one mini packet of each.


S is (still) outside working on his car as I type this.  I hope that he has it fixed by tomorrow so that I’m not stranded at home again!

PS:  Want to win some Chobani??
