I finally decided to do it: almonds in my cereal. I've done almonds in yogurt, oatmeal, plain, etc. but never on cereal because I thought the consistency would be strange. It wasn't! I'm a big mixer so in this little concoction was Fiber One Honey Clusters, Original Puffins, about a tablespoon of almonds, strawberries, and 1% milk. This bowl of "cereal" is much more dynamic than your average Raisin Bran breakfast. It has carbs, protein, healthy fat, and a ton of fiber. It kept me full at least through class and my workout. I might try this more often.

My foot was still achy from my Tuesday run, so I didn't dare go for a jog again. I did 32 minutes on the elliptical and then walked on an incline on the treadmill for 10 minutes. I felt like such an old fogie. What 22-year-old is too sore to run on a normal basis? Lame. I also spent about 5 minutes just stretching my right Achilles tendon. A little trick before you work out is to pinch up and down your Achilles tendon to get the blood flowing all the way through your leg. This minimizes soreness and makes for a quicker start into your workout.

Lunch was so tasty. I had mozzarella, chicken breast, and marinara sauce, so I made a panini (obsessed, I know). I also had an apple. The second picture is supposed to display the gooey melted cheese but it just looks like I'm a bad photographer. Know this, I'm not!

Snack was almonds at work... woo hoo; something new and different for me!! Coffee not pictured but c'mon, we all know I had it. I was informed by mother dearest that I was on my own for dinner. Sweet. Fine. Wegman's will never leave you lonely. So I got the Philadelphia roll sushi. Soo good! The best sushi I had was in Bel Air (or thereabouts) in Maryland on a lovely December day last year. It. Was. So. Good. Wegman's is good for a substitute but until I have the Maryland one, I'll be searching for a filler. I had some leftover asparagus and green beans and a pear for "dessert." Just a few more days of no sweets... think I can do it? I'm going to.
