Sunday and Monday
Sunday was my husband’s birthday, so I woke up early (even after getting home late on Saturday!) to make some buckwheat waffles. They were so thick and filling, we could both only eat two (with sugar free syrup, btw)! I had mine with some chocolate soymilk…there was no fruit in the house 😦
At church, I had this vanilla soy yogurt as a snack:
For lunch, we went to Chili’s and I got the exact same thing I did last time we went there about a month ago (sorry no pic)…the chicken fajita pita with broccoli instead of french fries. I also had about 5 chips with salsa.
My husband got a nice piece of dutch apple pie, his favorite. I chose to buy a slice so we wouldn’t have leftovers and so the family could enjoy a nice, more calorie friendly treat. I got lowfat vanilla ice cream (110 cal for 1/2 cup) and some small sugar cones (20 cal each). I had two of these:
I got hungry for dinner a few hours later, so I made a veggie burger with cheese, lettuce and light mayo on 12 grain bread. Applesauce on the side…
But that night I did myself in with some Barbara’s peanut butter puffins! I had three cups I think, sheesh 😉
Started off the day with a very filling breakfast: whole wheat bagel with sun butter and preserves, 1/2 cup strawberries and a cup of chocolate soymilk (545 calories)
Around 10:30, we were having a party at work but I wasn’t really that hungry for a snack, so I just had a few of these apple slices (about 50 calories):
Lunch was a can of Healthy Life spicy vegetarian chili (yum) with 2 sourdough wasa crackers (390 cal):
About an hour after lunch, I went to the gym and did 30 minutes on the elliptical. It felt so good to exercise again, hopefully I can get back in the groove! When I returned I had three Hershey’s dark chocolate kisses (about 75 cal) and tons of water!
Later on in the afternoon, I had some baby carrots & a Laughing Cow cheese wedge (70 cal for both) and a fresh peach (60):
– One-arm dumbbell rows with balance ball (using 10 lb dumbbell; 2 x 15) *this move worked out so much more than my arm, it was great!
I definitely paid more attention to my body tonight. I waited 2 hours after dinner to have a sweet treat which was 1/2 cup of ice cream in a cone (130 calories):
Then later on, I got a little hungry and knew that a cup of fat free hot chocolate would make me feel full and also help me get my daily calcium in (it has as much as a cup of milk and only 50 calories):
