Third Meal’s a CharmPosted: November 2, 2009
And another one bites the dust! Monday well done!
I don’t know if my breakfast just didn’t hold me or if I was just hungry, but from 10-12 I had 2 snacks and was still hungry!
I had a serving of prunes and about 10 almonds, which usually holds me just fine, but not today!
Lunch finally came and it was eh, OK. Yogi, 1/4 grapefruit and last bit of Friday’s veggie bake wrapped up tight.
I was kind of disappointed with this yogurt. It didn’t really have enough flavor for me, but I did like the lid!
I also had some issues with my snack…
I picked this up in the marked down bin at Giant from $4.25 to $1.75. I don’t know what it was about the bar but there was just too much sugar (10grams, more than a reduced sugar Quaker bar) for my afternoon snack. I found myself craving an apple. They will be moved to the Nick’s dessert bowl.
So my heel was still hurting this afternoon so once again I had to resort to the other cardio machines at the gym. I do not like the fact that I cannot run outside without worrying about it being too dark.
I always find that I don’t push myself on the elliptical or bike so I made a point to keep my HR around 160 or above for he hour. I did 30min on the elliptical – I did random and sprinted when the resistance went down to 3 bars until it went back up again. Not the most scientific method, but it worked! I then went to the bike for 10min – I was supposed to do 30min, but after the spin bike I hated the regular one. I finished my 20min on the ArcTrainer, again keeping my HR up and did intervals. On the down side the gym was packed!!! and I forgot my ipod. After cardio I did arms and core. I really hope I can run tomorrow, even if it is on the t-mill.
With such disappointing food earlier in the day I had high hopes for dinner.
Nick had a soccer game sooooo that means I could have a non-Nick approved meal!
The Works chips taste just like the TJs crackers. I paired the chips with black bean and corn salsa.
Then onto turnips and kale chips!
yellow turnip with S&P thyme and about 1/2 tbs of good old butter. I also had a huge mound of kale chips and ketchup. I really liked these! Crispy to start with and then they got chewy. I cooked them in EVOO and Lawery’s Season Salt.
I got a special delivery today! I ordered a pic from the 1/2. It was expensive, but I feel like it was worth it. Check out my guns and how both my feet are off the ground!
It looks better in real life, and I am smoking the ladies behind me from pen #1!
Alright I am going to enjoy some Christmas Eve tea and thin mints then climb into bed with Food Inc. I need to get reading!
