I think it worked
Breakfast this morning was of course a green monster.
As much as I love these things (and getting 3 cups of spinach in at breakfast) I am kind of glad this challenge is over. I’ve missed my oats!
I think I will try to incorporate these green smoothies into my diet from time to time but I don’t see them as a long term breakfast choice for me, especially not as the weather gets colder.
I snacked on some nuts mid-morning and then for lunch, I had leftover lentils that I made on Tuesday with some steamed green beans.
One of the things I mentioned in my post about my running diet was that I thought eating a snack before and after my workout would help keep me from overdoing it when I got home in the evenings.
Well, I think it worked!
I had a slice of whole wheat bread with peanut butter for a snack about 30 minutes before I went to work out.
We ran 2 miles and then came back and did some upper body weights and abs. It was great, especially in this beautiful weather we’ve been blessed with (high 50’s and sunshine)!
Then when I got back to work, I had a SoBe Lifewater and a Nature Valley bar.
It wasn’t the best snack but one of the only options I could find at work. I intend to plan my snacks better next week.
It also held me over quite well, as I did not get hungry until 7:30 when I started making dinner.
I had a random assortment of foods for dinner tonight: potatoes, carrots + hummus, and couscous. It was random but it was everything I felt like eating and used up more stuff at home instead of going out or buying something at the store.
I cooked the potatoes in the oven at 425 for 20 minutes.
And I tried a new hummus! So much better than the “original” flavor of this brand.
That’s organic ketchup 😉
I did go grocery shopping tonight (Josh is at a Megadeth concert) and I got everything we needed for $54 and I get to try a few new things this week, so that is exciting!
I’m getting ready to watch the film “Food, Inc.” which I won in a giveaway on Kath Eats a while back.
I can’t wait to report back my thoughts, I’m sure there will be a few.
I also enjoyed a glass of wine and a slice of cinnamon toast with peanut butter and chocolate chips for dessert 🙂
Good night friends!
