Breakfast this morning was similar to yesterday. cheerios (with dried fruit) that I topped with 1/2 cup of blueberries, 1/2 cup 1% milk and paired it with a cup of orange juice.
This morning I wasn’t craving my usual iced coffee, but instead wanted a little more of this from yesterday, since I enjoyed it so much! Lemons will definitely be on my shopping list from now on. Don’t you love my big cup from the Omaha zoo? ;)
My stomach was growling by the time of my first break. I had a slice of whole wheat toast topped with almond butter.
And now on to the Beautiful Delicious Salad…
*DRUM ROLL PLEASE*
Lunch was inspired by a recipe I found in a Kraft magazine. I had 2 cups of lettuce topped with 2 small peaches, 1/2 cup blueberries, 1.5 oz. chicken, 1 oz. Feta cheese, 1/2 oz. pecans and topped with Trader Joe’s Raspberry Vinaigrette. Yum!
I also had 1/2 serving of Trader Joe’s BBQ pop chips. These are SOOOO good.
A little later, I had this little juice box that I found a few weeks ago. It’s 100% pomegranate juice, not from concentrate. It’s only 27 calories for this little box. It was sweet and tart at the same time- I’d buy it again!
And snacked on some of these:
I was glad when it was time to sign out of work for the day! Lots of angry people being unreasonable today. But that’s my job and that’s why I’m in college- trying to get out of this dead end job!!
For supper I had grilled salmon, cucumbers, whole wheat bread topped with my homemade jam, green beans, and tomatoes. I love the yellow tomatoes- so sweet!
Dessert was light ice cream.
And I am out of points- but I didn’t go over! My salad was more points than I usually eat for lunch. But I don’t like to eat anything after supper on the night before WI anyways- I REALLLY want to meet 228 tomorrow. I was slightly up from last week this morning, but I usually lose on Wednesdays for some reason. I’m keeping my fingers crossed!
I really had to push myself to workout tonight. But it makes me feel better about Weigh in tomorrow.
Tonight, I took my workout inside to the treadmill. It was so much cooler and sooo much less humid w/ the AC on. Ultimately, it was more enjoyable. But it’s kind of boring staring at the wall, that’s the only part I hate! I walked 1/4 mile, and then ran 1 full mile and finished it up walking 3/4 mile for a total of 2 miles in 33 minutes. I really want to get this 3 mile run in and I’m either lacking the energy or the motivation- and I’m hoping it’s not the motivation! I feel like a failure for not running the 3 miles- but I’ll get there. Right now, I’m just proud that I did something and burned 329 calories. That counts for something, right?
