There was a lot going on yesterday, it seemed, and my eating got a little out of control. I did have some victories though so let’s get right to it! Thanks to Jenn over at Peas & Crayons for hosting this fun event every week!
Breakfast: I have had an obsession lately with this beautiful combo:
Chobani 2& strawberry banana, Kashi Go Lean, and sliced strawberries. It fills me up and I stay full for a few hours. If we run out of strawberries before the week is over, it will be a travesty (for both Hanna and I).
Since I ate breakfast at 7, and then worked out for almost an hour and a half I was famished by the time 11:00 rolled around so I made myself a protein shake to get those muscles to start repairing (I am SO STIFF today btw, if you want a great at home workout check out the TONE ZONE from workout post last Monday. Very good). This was probably one of the GREENEST smoothies I have drunk to date.
In the mix:
- 1 1/4 cup Orange Juice
- Scoop of Vanilla Pea Protein Powder
- Frozen mangoes
- Half a frozen banana
- about 3 cups of kale
I had leftover chickpea and avocado salad on celery, sliced apples, and a smoked mozzeralla chicken sausage with brown mustard. Every bite hit the spot.
We were haveing the missionaries over for dinner from our church and so I had to make a meal that guys would enjoy, and dessert, you can’t let them leave without satisfying that sweet tooth! So I made cookies:
My hub’s was suppose to take them to work with him today, but they are still sitting on the counter. Looks like into the freezer they will be going! Out of sight, out of mind! NSV: Usually I end up eating half of the dough before I even cook these little buggers, but yesterday I took one taste (to make sure they turned out okay), and then stopped. It turns out when a cookie recipe says it makes 4 dozen it really does if you don’t eat all the batter first!
Dinner: I kind of fell apart at dinner. Not that I ate a tone of food or anything, but I lost track of everything I was eating and didn’t end up tracking it. Luckily, I exercised enough yesterday that I shouldn’t see a gain or anything, but the point is to exercise to LOSE weight not so that I maintain!
I ate one serving of everything and then went back for 1 more piece of garlic bread (garlic bread is the devil!). I had two cookies for dessert and then I called it a night.
I don’t know what tomorrow’s weigh in will bring. I do know that I am retaining a lot of water from sore muscles, and all the bread I ate yesterday may take a couple of days to come off, but I’m ready to face it no matter what the scale says.
Any memorable eats for you lately?
