No Doughnuts for Me!

FREE Top Pot Doughnuts today at work...YIKES!!!

Luckily I hadn't even eaten my lunch yet, so I was able to avoid the caloric devils...but at first it was still pretty tough warming up my veggie dish while watching co-workers and making a new pot of coffee while diving into the doughnut box. But then I felt sort of happy and excited that I was able to avoid the goodies and watch everyone else overeat...almost in a healthsnob kind of way. I try not to judge others' food choices, but something about those doughnuts today made me feel superior in my choices, not restricted! I'll take it!

Onto some good eats this week...

Pork Tenderloin with Steamed Asparagus and Roasted Red Pepper Mashed Potato

We seared the pork in a cast iron pan and baked in the oven to temp.

The potato recipe came from Clean Eating Mag...couldn't say I was a fan:(

They had garlic, peppers, feta and yogurt...they just didn't taste all that good. Maybe I should have paired with a different protein...but it wasn't working in this meal. Or maybe I should stick to a little milk and buttah in my potatoes;)

Asparagus was yummy though!

I didn't make it to my yoga session this morning...I totally overslept. I was pretty disappointed, but I think I will fit in a jog tonight instead and pick a couple yoga sessions up this weekend. It's been nice today, so I may take my jog to the pavement and complete my first nighttime run by myself. I plan to stick to well lit and busy areas...some parts around me are a bit sketchy...


  1. What a fantastic looking meal! I love pork, especially when it's cooked correctly. It's one of those proteins that is easy to ruin.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog :)

  2. Love the new look with the food pictures! That looks scrumptious :-)

  3. Yum! The asparagus looks delish! Goodluck on your night time run. I found that getting a headlamp is a good investment for this.

  4. I hate it went donuts are brought into work! We had a vendor at my old office that would drop off donuts or pastries at least once a month - our office was 99% women and none of us wanted those calorie bombs around. I finally asked the vendor to please stop tempting us with tasty treats - the very next time she stopped by she brought a fruit plate - much better!

    Thanks for the oatmeal recommendation, going to try that out ASAP!
