After two days of social eating under my belt, I need an extra hole in my belt (figuratively speaking… I don’t use/own/like belts). Blech fries, mayo, and wings were consumed and now I don’t even want to see one of those things for a long time. (That’s good though right?). So, this week I’m going to really focus on healthy, simple eating, I do need to hit the grocery store though before the days done but it’ll happen eventually. The store I wanted to go to closed at 5 though so I’ll just grab the two (or so) items I need from the one across the street until I can get to the other one.
I started my day off with a sad text that my friend’s youngest had to go to the ER because he had an allergic reaction to something and his arm is swollen to double size. Hopefully, a shot of cortisone and a lolipop and he’ll be better and happy and on his way home quickly! After that I couldn’t go back to sleep, so I threw in a load of laundry and updated my to do list (yes, I hopped on the bandwagon, and yes, it’s a lifesaver for someone as busy as me).
Then I had my three quarter breakfast.
3/4 c. Nature’s Path Heritage O’s (for whole grains and crunch factor), 3/4 c. Quaker Maple & Brown Sugar Life (for sweetness and deliciousness, I love all things M&BS by Quaker yet can never get the combo right on my own!) and 3/4 c. of Nature’s Promise Original Soymilk (for protein and such!). It wasn’t overly filling but since breakfast was closer to lunch time I figured it would work best so I’d still get to eat at decent hours!
The breakfast held me over really well (wonder why? latent fullness from the other days?) and I wasn’t hungry again for six hours, but I was in the middle of a big project and didn’t allow myself to stop. When I finally finished, I wasn’t super hungry and it was already 5 so I started dinner and had something pretty to tide me over.
Champagne mango… it was slightly tart but delicious anyway. I gnawed off ate what was left on the core as well. Yum!
Dinner was equally simple and delicious…
An Alton Brown Baked Potato with sour cream and a nice big salad on the side- organic spring mix, tomato, avocado, papaya poppyseed dressing. I eat so much of that dressing because it’s delicious but also because it’s the only prepared dressing I have in house. I’m thinking I need to grab some variety though if I see a sale!
I realized that I’d only eaten about 900 kcal today about an hour after dinner, so I decided it was snack time. I knew I needed “chew” and I almost went to Safeway to get something since I don’t really have snacks but then I saw these babies:
Literally babies… baby gold fish. My loves… I forget I have them around sometimes.
I also had this…
I thought making it a thumbnail would make it less calories… Did not work!!!! 😉
Now, I’ve been working on the Oh She Glows Bikini Body Boot Camp and although I’m far from perfect, as I was throwing on some workout wear earlier I noticed these incredible changes in my body, especially in the back and abs area. So exciting. It was enough motivation to get me through what I thought would be a ‘phone in’ workout. Yay!
