Teriyaki Tofu Triangles

That’s a tongue twister!

For lunch, I wanted to use up the other half block of tofu. I would end up throwing it away otherwise. I got a little creative, and cut them into cute little triangles!

I marinated them in teriyaki sauce for 30 minutes while I studied, and then grilled them on the George Foreman grill.

Along with it, I had carrots, cauliflower, and broccoli with the same marinade. I sprinkled it all with sesame seeds!

Yummy lunch!

Soon after, I wanted sugar! I busted out some cantaloupe…

I wasn’t really hungry this afternoon, but with a 12.0 miler on the schedule tomorrow, I need to make sure I fuel up adequately. I munched on some pita chips, hummus, and more veggies:

I packed a snack for my break between classes, which is at 7:15pm. I picked up this new (to me) flavor of Stonyfield yogurt, Super Fruits. I packed raspberries on the side to mix in!

It was a great idea! This flavor was very fresh tasting, and the berries were a perfect addition!

When I got home from class, I was distracted by this:

Water from the ice pack used to pack the yogurt leaked out of my cooler and into my bag, getting ALL my school papers soaked!

As much as I hated doing it, I saved that shiz.

While this was going on I tried to think of the fastest possible way to get food into my belly. A sandwich sounded awesome. The grill was still out from lunch, so I whipped up a panini!

I think the fact that it was warm made it so much better!!! Oh, and the bread was free thanks to Foodbuzz! 😀

It had:

  • 2 Slices Nature’s Pride Bread- 12 Grain
  • turkey slices
  • cheddar cheese
  • tomato
  • sprouts
  • mustard

I’m off to bed! Waking up at an Un-godly hour to run 12.0 miles!

Anytime Fitness Winter Park

Good Morning!

A couple of days ago, the lovely people from Anytime Fitness Winter Park, FL contacted me to come check out their gym, and attend a yoga class.

In the car on the way over, I had a Blueberry crisp CLIF bar. It reminded me of a Blueberry muffin! 😀

I have only ever been to a yoga class one other time, and it was hard! I’m extremely inflexible, so I was a little nervous about going.

The yoga studio was very nice! It was in the back of the building, which was quiet and dark. The little amount of lighting made it feel relaxing and serene.

The instructor was awesome, and kept reminding us that yoga is about focusing and breathing. It doesn’t matter what’s happened before or after, only in THAT moment. Words to live by! We did some gentle stretching- Hatha type yoga, and ended with some meditation.

I tried picturing myself somewhere far away from all my school stress, and this is what I pictured:

LA JOLLA (9) 

Beautiful, huh?

(Taken in March 2008, on a trip to San Diego, CA. This is at La Jolla, CA.)

Gentle yoga was just what I needed with all the school stress I have piling up! I never realized just how many directions my mind is going in until I was on the mat, literally thinking about only breathing. Amazing!

We also got to check out the rest of the facilities. The staff was super friendly showing Caitlin and I around!

Some of my favorite features (other than the staff and yoga studio) was that there are tvs on the cardio equipment! Now THAT would make running on a treadmill so much nicer!

I also really liked that the gym is 24 hours! As you can tell from my Marathon Training plan, I like my workouts to work around MY schedule, not the other way around!

You just have to have a little key to come in, but the building is very secure! They even have little necklaces you can wear with a button that calls 911!

That way, if you are the only one there and something happens to you, just push the button! As a woman, that would make me feel safer working out there!

 

This gym seems very reasonably priced and is located to next door to Whole Foods! Caitlin and I stopped in to pick up some goodies, including a pumpkin scone which I stole a few nibbles from 😀

Thanks again to Anytime Fitness for letting us come check out the facilities! 😀

Be sure to check them out on Twitter!

 

What aspects of a gym are most attractive to you? Cheap memberships? Location? Facilities?

 

Namaste.
