Conference Call Cardio

in All Posts

I watched the LOST season finale!  How insanely good was it?  I love that show! As Entertainment Weekly put it, this finale was as epic in scope as season 4, as game changing as season 3, as explosive as season 2, and as frustrating as season 1! Are you a LOSTie, too?


I’m becoming more and efficient with sneaking in my cardio exercises.  I was too pooped to go the gym tonight; plus, the Healthy Blogger Summit ladies had a big conference call tonight.  So, I went for a 2.0 mile walk while we talked.


  • Duration: 35 minutes
  • Distance: 2.0 miles


I was a little bit sweaty and totally satisfied by the end of my walk.  Who knew you don’t have to kill yourself running 6.0 miles to feel GREAT?! 🙂 (I didn’t, not a few months ago!).


Here are my afternoon eats:


Dried Baby Pineapple (Times three. These were SO good!).


A half a whole wheat bagel with PB:



And here’s dinner:


I made an Amy’s Kitchen Baked Ziti Bowl.  It’s vegan, gluten-free, has no cholesterol, lactose free, kosher…. and so delicious!  How amazing it that?  How Amy’s can take something as fattening as ziti and make it healthy (and natural), I’ll never know!


Made from rice flour rather than the usual wheat flour, along with organic peas and completely dairy-free, soy-based mozzarella and ricotta cheeses, in Amy’s superb pasta sauce made from vine organic tomatoes, extra virgin olive oil and classic Italian herbs and spices.  Plus — only 380 calories!

And a side salad:


Plus, one of the faux Amy’s pop tarts for "dessert."


This girl is GOING TO BED on time! Woop woop!

    Glad you got a good work out in! Your eats looks fantastic. YUM!

    I am growing to LOVE dried fruit more and more each day. Mmmm! I have some dried mango in the pantry and I can’t keep my hands out of it.

  • Olga May 14, 2009, 6:40 pm

    I am SO LOST. I think they meant that name to have a double meeting 🙂

    A friend told me how good Lost was, so I’m currently watching it on Netflix. I’m still on season one, but I can see the addiction developing! I hope you get a good night’s sleep!

    I love Lost, but my favorite part is always dissecting it with my best friends, which we’ve been doing since junior year of college. Love it.

  • Bec May 14, 2009, 6:46 pm

    a walk and a talk? sounds like a great workout!

  • Meganerd May 14, 2009, 6:50 pm

    Nice job multi-tasking!

    Lost is the second best show ever, in my opinion. It’s definitely addicting! Sex and the city is the best show ever, hands down!! I haven’t watched LOST this season since the premiere b/c I always had class when it came on this semester so I can’t wait for it to come out on DVD!!! aaaah!!

    I MUST find that Amy’s meal! That almost sounds too good to be true!

  • Melissa @ For the Love of Health May 14, 2009, 7:19 pm

    How inventive and productive! That’s so great you got some cardio in while working! AMAZING!

    Great looking dinner!

    Have a great night!

    I did a nice walk yesterday while listening to a podcast on my iPod. 🙂 It’s a nice low-key way to get some activity!

  • Jenny May 14, 2009, 7:58 pm

    that amy’s ziti bowl is one of my favoites 🙂 and thanks for answering my question about the toaster pastries! I’ll definitely have to order some ASAP.

    I am a Lostie!

  • jenngirl May 14, 2009, 8:06 pm

    I always forget how energizing walks can be!!

    Amy’s is obviously the best thing ever 😉

  • Leah @ Simply Fabulous May 14, 2009, 10:22 pm

    That’s great that you could sneak in your cardio that way! Love it!

    I’m not a Lost fan.. I just haven’t been able to watch it enough to get into it.

    Loooove dried pineapple!!

  • Peanuts & Crackerjacks May 15, 2009, 3:55 am

    Congrats on you efficiency!! 😉

  • sloank May 15, 2009, 4:19 am

    LOVE lost!! I have been a HUGE fan since day one! And I agree this finale was QUITE confusing and I can not believe it won’t be on until January again!! Arggghhh!!

  • Marisa (Trim The Fat) May 15, 2009, 4:28 am

    Oh, I never tried dried baby pineapple! I’ll keep an eye out for those:)

  • Christina May 15, 2009, 4:49 am

    Wasn’t the Lost finale SO GOOD? I can’t wait 9 more months!!!

  • bb May 15, 2009, 5:21 am

    I’m a HUGE Lostie 🙂

  • megan May 15, 2009, 5:29 am

    I did the same thing last night – skipped the run (sore knee – oh no!) and went for a nice walk and felt great. 🙂

  • Brandi May 15, 2009, 5:34 am

    great idea walking while on the phone!

    I LOVE Lost. we’ve been watching since the beginning, and I’m so sad I have to wait until NEXT YEAR to see a new episode

  • Dori May 15, 2009, 6:09 am

    I want that ziti! I have to look for it. Yum!

    Excited to hear about the summit!

  • Red Head, Yellow Dog May 15, 2009, 6:17 am

    I totally agree with you. that’s the best thing that has come out of being injured..I’ve realized I don’t HAVE to go for a run in order to get a good work out! Gotta look at the silver lining right??

  • K from ksgoodeats May 15, 2009, 7:02 am

    I’m straight up addicted to LOST! The finale was fantastic! I’m loving all of the Amy’s products in this post 🙂

  • Esquire Eats Well May 15, 2009, 7:07 am

    A blogger summit telephone conference!!! Is there any news you can share??
    My best friend and I recently (and by recently I mean yesterday) started our own blogs so that we can go. I know we don’t have to be bloggers to go and that we could just come as readers but we wanted to start blogs anyway and the prospect of going to the summit as bloggers really pushed us over the edge!!!
    I can’t wait to hear more!

  • Sarah Mila May 15, 2009, 7:10 am

    The Amy’s baked ziti looks great! I love your blog and the inspiration it gives me to look for more foods in my local grocery store or Whole Foods.

  • Kiersten May 15, 2009, 7:20 am

    I agree that the finale of Lost was AMAZING! I am obsessed with that show.

  • Kath May 15, 2009, 8:42 am

    Love that you walked and talked!! One of my favorite activities 🙂
