Dayumnnn weather – you be lookin’ GOR-geous today!! Keep it up
Today started out with some gym time. I usually go do weights for about 30-40 minutes, but I felt pretty awful when I woke up, and decided to head in later at like 7:00 instead of 6:30. So I got in:
- 15 minutes easy weights (including pull-up machine…working on that!)
- 25 minutes abs class
Let me tell ya’ – doing ab work is dang hard with a boot on my leg. I don’t know how much it weighs, but it ads to the intensity! Of course I have to modify planks and such though.
Breakfast wasn’t eaten until 9:15 at work:
Voskos Greek yogurt (topped with a bit of granola)
…mixed with some Trader Joe’s honey apple butter. It’s definitely yummy, but just reminds me of extra sweet applesauce. It’s good, but I’d rather have jam (or pumpkin butter!!).
While at work at snacked on watermelon which I was asked to cut up:
And a mini baby ice cream cone! Cute.
Lunch (prepared in my wok – love love this thing) – stir-fryed broccoli slaw with ground turkey and enchilada sauce. Sounds weird, but it was tasty!
Topped off with some Jalapeno greek yogurt dip (found at Costco) instead of sour cream.
I also snacked on 2 small random pieces of chicken while this was cooking.
And a couple carrot cake cookies for dessert.
I got this container 75% off at Cost Plus the other day, and have been plowing through. Love you after-holiday sales!
I failed yet again at taking a picture of dinner at work. It rarely rarely happens since I don’t carry my camera/phone around with me in my pocket (obviously), and we go straight on break into the cafeteria. Unfortunately, I just have to describe it to you
- Creamed spinach (so so good!)
- Steamed broccoli
- Vegetable soup (Au Bon Pan)
There are always 2 entrees, 2 vegetables (not always healthy steamed vegetables ), and 2 starches as options in the cafeteria. Plus a salad bar, prepackaged wraps/sandwiches, and a soup. The entrees are often foods I don’t eat (red meat, over-dried meat, meat with skin, etc), so I often go for the salad bar, veggie sides, and soups.
Once home, I self massaged my tibial tendon (where I’m having lots of pain – right above my inner ankle), and snack on my new favorite dessert – frozen blueberries topped with a peanut flour sauce (will take a picture next time, promise!!).
Plus hot chocolate! I needed to warm up someway after icing
By the way – yes I am counting calories (as part of my weight loss/fit back in my pants plan). And today’s calorie count totaled out around 1500. Probably a little more since I estimated on my peanut flour sauce and snacked on a few unmentionable carrot cake cookies I don’t necessarily like to talk calories on the blog (since I know many people do not like that, and I don’t want it to become all calorie talk since I don’t like that either), but I will occasionally talk about it. Just the facts!
PS – yayyyy we made it through Monday!! (even though today is technically my Tuesday at the hospital, it is still my Monday at babysitting).
