Work It Out

February 21, 2010 at 8:13 PM 11 comments

Hi Lovely Readers! I was happy to read that so many of you were excited about the little tale this morning. I got the melted jam idea from another blog, but now can’t remember which.

After finishing my morning post, I made myself a latte – or technically a cafe au lait (with 1% milk) – and a sprinkling of raw sugar…mmm. I’m going strong with my Coffee Challenge and have decided to extend my goal until this Friday (rather than Monday). I have a tough school week ahead of me, and thought if I can avoid buying coffee until Friday, then I can reward myself with a treat!

Foam a la Aerolatte


Lounging around in my pajamas all morning meant a late lunch…but when I got around to it, this is what it consisted of:

Frijoles Negros, Salsa y Avocado + Agua

Dos Kiwis


After studying up for my Elementary Foods exam, I got antsy to exercise. My muscles are still extremely sore from the past 4 days of exercise, but I wanted to work out some of the lactic acid build-up. Nothing hardcore:


  • 1 mile track [alternate jog/walk every 2 laps]
  • 20 minutes: ARC Trainer
  • 1 mile track [alternate jog/walk every 2 laps]


  • 2 x 20 stability ball crunches
  • 2 x 20 reverse crunches
  • 2 x 10 side crunches
  • 2 x 10 stability ball “knee-to-chest rollers”



Dinner was rustic and E-Z!

– organic polenta (sauteed in olive oil), marinara, chevre & tear of fresh basil –

Alright…time to study my fruits and veggies for Wednesday’s Elementary Foods EXAM.

Enjoy your night,

~ Hillary

    Hey girlie. I know the Vibrams seem and look ridiculous. I gave 2 of my friends THE hardest time ever [lots of joking] when they bought them. However, they raved and raved and then my husband read the book Born To Run, [his fav book ever] which gave a ton of info on barefoot running style. I did a boat-load of research and since switching to toe-running [used to be a heel striker] and wearing the Vibrams I have had NO knee pain, no shin splints [used to get them], I can breathe better + my legs feel lighter. It’s amazing! Ummm, sorry for the long comment, hehe. The cafe au lait looks delish…and I love the little avocado chunks! mmmm Take care!

    I’ll have to check out those chips next time I am at TJ’s – they look really good (as does your lunch!) :D

    I love kiwi – I read on someone else’s blog that they eat the skin, but I think that is gross!

    • 5. Hillary  |  February 22, 2010 at 12:01 PM

      I have seen a handful of bloggers eat the skin too, but I get enough fiber as it is =]

    oooh I love polenta! What a yummy looking dinner! Hope the study went well…

  • 9. Julie @ Pickley Pear  |  February 22, 2010 at 3:45 PM

    I’ve never seen polenta made like that, although I have never bought or made polenta. I’m a little scared of it. Hope your exam went well!

    Long Board chips? I’m going to look for those next time I’m at TJ — I need to find some good quality dipping chips! :)

    Oh my god I love your lunch. The longboard chips look so great! And I’ve got some polenta that I’m hoping to use up soon! Have a wonderful Tuesday!
