The perfect fall day, and dinner in a box

I apologize for my lack of posting last night; dinner turned out to go pretty late (but it was worth it!) and then my best friend Danielle came over to say goodbye before she leaves for Maine for a while.

My lunch held me over surprisingly well, but I stayed on campus longer than I expected so I grabbed an apple from the Ram's Den to hold me until I got home.

Back at home, I was a bit hungry but didn't want to spoil my dinner so I just finished off the last bit of 1% cottage cheese in the container while waiting for Nick to finish studying.

We went to Seven Moons (he had never been) and it was fantastic as always! We ordered the shu-mai shrimp dumplings to start, which I had three of. (The ones pictured, plus another!)

For our entrees we both went with the Bento Box special. I had never tried this before, and it did not disappoint! It came with miso soup to start:

Then two big boxes with two salads (I ate 1/2 the one with ginger dressing, the carrots and a couple bites of the sprout one), sushi (I ate 2 1/2), some rice (just had a bite) and teriyaki salmon, which was TO DIE FOR... and I cleaned that up pretty well!
Needless to say I was pretty stuffed when dinner was over, but not too too stuffed, so that was a good sign! It was a great break to the middle of the week.

This morning I had planned on going for a run but two minutes (yes, 2...) into it it started raining, and it was cold... so I turned around, only getting in about 4 minutes of running. Instead, I did 20 minutes of weighted leg strengthening moves and abs. I still got a pretty good workout in despite the rain!

Before I headed out I had a mini crunchy pb clif bar.

When I returned, I made breakfast- 3/4 cup ezekiel cereal, 1 cup vanilla hemp milk and a big banana. Mmmm! Warm and filling.

Lunch today is simple, Tuscan White Bean Soup, with some crackers and a pear.

For snacks I packed almonds/dried cherries and a vanilla chobani.

Hopefully these will keep me full during my long day of work/school before I get to relax and make pizza later tonight!!

I love Chobani yogurt! I like the Fage brand too but I like that Chobani has flavors - my favorites are honey and Vanilla.
