I Love Mondays

I had my normal meals all day long. Before heading to the gym, I had 1/2 of a cherry pie Lara Bar. It was so good. The bar has 200 calories, so that's why I only had half. I could have had 3 bars. Very yummy!!

I got to the gym and ran 4 1/4 miles. I had such an easy run. I ran it in 43:22 minutes. It was such a relaxed run. So much better than Thursday's run! It was great!! I then went off to my spin class. It was also a nice class. It went by so fast. It felt like I was in there for only 20 minutes. I worked up a great sweat! I then went to my yoga class and enjoyed stretching and relaxing for an hour! Afterwards, I still had a little energy I needed to burn off. I did a long sprint (for me it was long)...1/4 mile. It was nice and it kicked my butt. Exactly what I needed.

When I got home, I made dinner. I made the Brown Eyed Baker's Sweet and Sour Chicken. It was so easy to make and didn't take much prep time at all.

Here's 1 cup of corn starch ready for the chicken...

The eggs are beaten and ready...

The chicken after being placed in the corn starch and egg bathes...ready for the oven.

Out of the oven and ready to be put together...

Brown rice, the chicken and green beans...yummy!!!

I didn't have much, but it was great!! Check out my poll I have on the top right side of my blog. It's a new thing I've started and I'll post the result later on in the week. Please take the poll and let's see what we have in common.
What's your favorite snack you enjoy?


  1. That photo looks like a huge pile of cocaine! LOL
    I LOVE Lara Bars. Especially the peanut butter cookie ones. Yummy! ;

  2. Yum Larabars! But yes, very calorie dense!

  3. You are a gym machine on Mondays! Awesome job on the run + spin + yoga + RUN! Wowzers! I would be ravenous after that!

  4. Wow--that's some serious working out there! And the dinner looks great.

    I'm a big almond fan for snacks (probably too big!)

  5. Larabars are the greatest thing! I love cashew cookie.

  6. You LOVE Mondays!??!? Hmmmmmm.

    Man, I could eat so many Larabars. I actually have hunted down a recipe for one of them. Let me go find it....
