I am up bright and early today because I am running in a 5K this morning, my first one since the mini-marathon over a month ago. I am not nervous as I usually am, I’m just looking forward to a good workout.
I will be back later to update you all on my food for the rest of the day and what time I finished. I’m hoping to come in under my previous 5K time which was 30:40. So here goes!
For dinner, I went to BD’s Mongolian Grill with some friends and I got tofu and tons of veggies stir fried in teriyaki sauce and just a little bit of brown rice (no pic). Afterwards, we went to Barnes and Noble (we were supposed to see SATC, but it was all sold out!) and I got a hot green tea and a rice krispie treat from the cafe.
Then when I got home I enjoyed some Edy’s ‘light’ cookie dough ice cream
Later on this afternoon, I had a 100-calorie mini-bag of popcorn and a diet dr. pepper. It’s weird, I don’t even drink soft drinks anymore, nor do I miss them, but occasionally for some reason, I have like one a month if that. I think it was boredom and tiredness that caused it today.
Boca Original Vegan burger w/ veggie swiss cheese, spicy mustard, spinach leaves and tomato on a whole wheat English muffin; salad – romaine, spinach, carrots, tomato, cucumber, green pepper, Annie’s Naturals Lowfat Honey Mustard Vinaigrette dressing (soooo good!); 1 small plum.
About 325 calories.
I went for a nice long hour walk, I wanted to get that in before it got too hot and humid (it’s supposed to be 90 here today, wow)! So I feel pretty good now. I’m hoping to still hit the gym after work though, either for a short run or the elliptical trainer.
Kashi trail mix granola bar and a small peach (170 cals)
I think I am all caught up finally on here. You will notice that a few days are missing; I didn’t have room on my camera to take pics but I did write everything down that I ate, so I haven’t completely lost focus.
For breakfast today, I had a cup of Kashi cereal with a sliced banana and a cup of skim milk, and a scrambled egg (405 cals).
When I got to work, I had a mug of decaf coffee with a tablespoon of creamer (45 cals-oops no pic).
I can’t remember when I ate this either (I need to get back on track) but it was an interesting concoction…tuna with brown rice and carrots!
I left my veggie burger patty at home in the freezer today! I was really bummed…I ended up eating my english muffin plain (toasted) and my veggie salad and honeydew balls.
But then I had a bright idea. I was low on milk for the day, so I walked down to Starbuck’s and got a grande iced nonfat decaf latte (90 cals)! It was so good and the perfect treat for hoofin’ it down there in this heat. I ended up getting almost an hour walk in.
So, some things left at home work out for the better!
How does that happen? I have a camera full of pictures for a few days last week and I’m not sure where they end but I know my camera memory got full really fast (I don’t have a memory card) so a lot will be missing.
And I won’t bore you with today since I have no pictures to show for it!
I’ll be back soon though, I promise! I think I just need to leave the weekends off, I’m not able to use a computer much because I’m out running around everywhere. But at least Monday thru Friday I should be able to post on here with some good pictures right?
