Holiday Challenges

by Nicci on 11/02/2009

Kicking November off with a Bang!

November Goals:

  1. Drink more water
  2. Workout morning and evening
  3. Less processed foods
  4. Spend more time with family

Many challenges are going on and it’s a great time to pick one to help you get through the Holidays.  I’m participating in POTM and also another challenge at TheNest that Kelsey from Kelseytoney has told me about. This challenge will be great with POTM.  Please go check it out, thanks again Kelsey!

I felt so refreshed this morning, I couldn’t believe how an extra hour can make a difference.  Thank you Mr. Daylight Savings…for the extra time to workout, eat breakfast at home and watch The Morning Show.

I’m happy to say I started the day with a workout and ended it with a workout too!

  • 30 min. Cardio (morning)
  • 30 min. High Def Sculpt (evening)
  • 30 min. Total Body Sculpt (evening)

Yogurt, granola with fruit always makes me happy.

Lunch was a Chipotle burrito with Carlos.

Tofu Stir Fry & Whole Grain Pilaf was on the menu for dinner tonight.

Cut the tofu into cubes and marinate in stir fry sauce for 15 minutes over the stove.  After cooking the frozen vegetables, I added the tofu and 90 sec Kashi Pilaf to the mix.

This delicious meal took less then 30 minutes to prepare.  We now call tofu ”chicken” at home. Chris likes tofu but would rather I call it chicken, so he can imagine it’s meat. Lol

Can’t forget the fruit salad on the side as dessert.

  3. Weddings
  4. Birthdays
  5. Holidays with family & friends
  6. 18 days, 18 days, 18 days till New Moon

What a sweet dinner it was tonight & the easiest to prepare.  Frozen stir fry that came with rice (wish it was brown) and frozen pineapple thrown into the mix.

Took 10 minutes to fix too!

Can’t forget the breaded Italian Tofu

A strange thing occurred tonight! A boy named Chris liked the Tofu and did not miss chicken!

I’m still in shock right now! :)

  • Block of Firm Tofu
  • Italian bread crumbs and some of my own spices
  • 1 egg white ( so much for vegan Thursdays)  sorry

I cut the tofu into thick strips and dipped it in one egg white followed by the crumbs.  Baked at 400 for 30 minutes!

Yummy all together

Now time to sip on my Starbucks Passion Tea  I bought earlier on the way home!
