day 2 food blogging, and boot camp measurements!

Posted Feb 01 2010 12:00am
Are you there, blog? It’s me, Andrea. As promised, here are today’s fancy eatings. Ok, not so fancy.
First up, same as yesterday, pumpkin oats.


Same mix as yesterday.

  • 1/3 cup oats
  • 2/3 cup almond milk
  • 1/3 cup pumpkin
  • 1/3 cup cottage cheese
  • little bit of brown sugar, little bit of pumpkin pie spice

By the way, I am totally lazy and cook my oats in the microwave!

Grabbed a coffee on the way to work, but I’ve decided I’m not going to photograph and post those, because a) they’re just coffee, I never get anything exciting, and b) I literally get the same thing every frigging day. So just imagine me a drinking a grande bold.

For lunch, I had the same thing as yesterday (the crab, avocado, brown rice salad.) But, funny story: lying in bed last night I realized I was all out of lettuce. So I was all DAMN! And then I started thinking of what else I could have for lunch tomorrow, and figuring I’d just grab Subway. But then I thought, “Andrea! Step away from the saltines! You had a plan, now how can you make it work?”

So what I did is I packed all my salad toppings, including the dressing, in a smaller tupperwear, and on the way to work I bought a container of lettuce.

Ok, I guess that story isn’t THAT funny. But I was pleased with myself for how I dealt with the situation.

A quick pic:


Later I snacked on an apple with almond butter. Check this arty shot out:

Looking at this picture makes me want to stick my finger (or a spoon I SUPPOSE) directly into that jar. Mmmmm.

Another unphotographed coffee after this.

This evening I had boot camp, and on boot camp nights I don’t do a real dinner, just two kinda large ‘snacks’. So pre-boot camp I had this delish baked sweet potato topped with salsa.


And I was still a bit hungry, so I had a few dried apricots. ( + 1 or 2 more that didn’t make the photo!)

And after I got home from boot camp (a mere half-hour ago!) I had this little treat:


This was 175 g of plain yogurt (yes, weighed on my scale and everything!), sweetened with 1 tbsp. honey, and topped with some frozen mixed fruit, thawed (mango, peaches, pineapple, and kiwi). And a generous sprinkling of dried coconut.

That’s it guys! Another delicious day!

OH, wait, I promised you an update on my boot camp measurements.

Sooo, according to the scale we use there, I was down 3.4 lbs, which was great. And here are my measurements. This is for 4 weeks.

Upper arm, left: 12” / 11.5
Upper arm, right: 12 / 12
Chest: 37.5 / 37
Waist: 35 / 34.5
Hips: 42 / 40
Buttocks: 45.5 / 45
Upper thigh, left: 27.5 / 26
Upper thigh, right: 26.5 / 26.5

Not too shabby, right? Now I only have one question, what the heck am I doing with my left thigh that I’m NOT doing with my right???
