Lunch was actually really good today. I wasn’t sure if I’d like the Kashi Chicken Pasta Pomodoro lunch but it hit the spot, mostly because it was steaming. It was horrible all morning and afternoon in the Chicagoland area. We’ve been hit with a ton of snow, so having a warm lunch as opposed to a cold sandwich was definitely comforting. Here’s what you’ll find in this frozen Kashi dinner, courtesy of the Web site: “Chicken and roasted vegetables over whole grain pasta and topped with fresh tomato garlic basil sauce, parmesan cheese and Kashi® 7 Whole Grain Flakes.”
I’m thinking I might have to add this frozen lunch to the rotation. On the side, I had a spinach salad mixed with chopped zucchini, sun dried tomatoes, chopped yellow peppers, feta and a balsamic vinaigrette. Cottage cheese also gave me some much-needed cheese! Cheese is my favorite food out there. Give me any type and in any form, and I will devour it!
When I woke up this morning, my left knee had a small ache in it, which really freaked me out. A couple of years ago, I tried to really get back into working out, but I did too much, too quickly, and ended up with tendinitis in my right knee for several months. I couldn’t get on the treadmill or the elliptical, so I basically gave up on fitness.
Having knee pain immediately scared me today, so I didn’t want to get on the treadmill or elliptical. It definitely stinks because I really enjoyed yesterday’s challenging workout. Instead, I did my 30-minute yoga DVD. I know well enough not to much too much stress on my knee. Injuring it would be the worst possible thing right now, so if it needs a break, I’ll deal with it.
If I’m still feeling some pain tomorrow, I might try my new pilates DVD and just do my arm workout. Fingers crossed that the pain will be gone!
I’d rather be in a torrential downpour then take one step in snow. Too bad, we never seem to get a choice. This morning, my commute went from a normal 30 minutes to 45, and it was pretty dangerous on the roads. People were driving slow, which was great, but the roads weren’t as clear as they should have been. The evening commute was much better, but still about 50 minutes. Yuck!
While I’m not officially in on Stefanie of The New Healthy’s Lunch Box Wrap Challenge, I was feeling a little creative when I finished yoga this evening. I created a sort-of wrap, but to be honest, it kind of fell apart. Nevertheless, it was still delicious and really filling.
So what we have here is a toasted whole wheat pita toasted, filled with Roasted Red Pepper Laughing Cow Cheese, spinach, yellow peppers, green peppers and sun-dried tomatoes.
I thought I’d be able to stuff the pitas without a problem. Stef always makes her snack wraps look so nice!! Maybe I should have used a tortilla. Hm… Anyway, this is what the two of them ended up looking like.
How’s the weather where you are? What’s the worst fitness injury you’ve had to deal with? Are you part of The New Healthy’s Lunch Box Challenge?
