After work we went to celebrate Isabel's (my friend from South Africa) last day in the US (so sad) at Yogurtini. We thought it was appropriate, because Dan and I took Isabel there on her first night in the US. Dan was so excited that we were her "first Americans." Hehehe.
Before going I checked out the NI on their website, and was very impressed. They have a pdf with every flavor and its exact NI. After a lot of thought (there are so many flavors) I picked Cookies and Cream (3) and No-sugar-added Strawberry Banana (2). Next time I am going for Maple-Bacon-Doughnut, or maybe plain with Srircha hot sauce. :)
Although the yogurt itself has impressive nutrition stats, the toppings are a different story.
Aren't they beautiful? To be safe, I stuck with fresh fruit. I forgot how good this place was. I am seriously considering buying a franchise. Must start saving now.

After Yogurtini, I got home and started making Chicken and Mushrooms with Garlic Wine Sauce (click *here* for the recipe). I am always hesitant when a recipe calls for wine, but this stuff was wonderful. Dan put it in his Top 5 recipes that I have made. It was so easy, but it tasted gourmet.

The best part? You have an open bottle of wine with only 1/4 cup taken out. Shucks, looks like I will have to take care of that this weekend. :)
Yesterday I did some sprints on the treadmill. This time, I made up my own routine.
|^Edit: the bottom left column should say 23 to 30 minutes|
Talk about quick and effective. I was dripping with sweat after 30 minutes. I liked it because it included my "balls to the wall" speed (9.0 mph) for only 30 seconds and then a slow decrease after that. Can you go faster than 9.0? Not quite there yet? No problem, you can adjust based on your own "balls to the wall" speed. Hehehe.
I didn't have time to make breakfast, so instead I made while-driving-protein-oats and ate them when I got to work.
|Breakfast: Modified Overnight Oats: 1 Cup almond milk, 1/3 C Greek Yogurt, 1/3 C oats, once scoop of protein powder, bananas and blueberries (7)|
|Lunch Salad of Champions (7)|
I have perfected the fruit and cheese wrap by adding cinnamon and Splenda.

I mistakenly gave Dan a bite and now I am out of Laughing Cow cheese because he won't stop making them! :)
Thought for the day:
