Day 3: Smoothies and Snackiness
For breakfast this morning, I had something I hadn’t had in quite a while…a smoothie!
This smoothie contained: 1 cup plain almond milk, 1 frozen banana, 1/4 cup frozen cherries, a few handfuls of spinach, 1 tbsp cocoa powder, and 1/2 tbsp maca powder. The maca gave it a weird aftertaste again, I’m not sure how to mask it better.
Mid-morning at work, I had a cup of coffee and some nuts.
For lunch, I had another leftover black bean burger on a salad with salsa.
Plus a gala apple and Bora Bora bar, which I don’t think fits into the challenge but it helped round out the meal!
After work, I went for a 2 mile run, stretched and did some abs. It felt good to work up a sweat again, it had been a few days!
I am happy to say that I haven’t had a diet soda in two days, even though today I wanted one really badly. But then I remembered the headache and stomach troubles they give me. Not to mention they cause food cravings.
Thankfully, I made something even better when I got home: a POM Seltzer 🙂
For dinner, I heated up some leftover beans & tomatoes from last night and threw them on a sweet potato with some leftover veggies on the side.
The snack monster started to creep in, so I came upstairs and brushed my teeth. I have to use a special $16 toothpaste in the evenings to protect my teeth from cavities, so trust me I don’t want to waste it!
Day 3 = Totally awesome.
