Tuesday morning was slow going after Monday’s night at the bar, but a cup of coffee and a good breakfast woke me up :-) I started the day with a strawberry chobani, blueberries, Kashi honey sunshine bar, and a calcium supplement.
I brought some leftover iceburg lettuce to work and mixed it with a cafeteria salad. You can’t really tell from the photo, but this container was overflowing with veggies, beans, feta cheese, and a bit of tuna. Afterwards, I was so FULL. Actually I was too full. Must have been all the water and fiber!
Around 5:30pm, I finally felt a little hungry for a snack, so I had a Kashi crunchy almond granola bar. When I went to the gym an hour later, my tummy was not happy. I don’t know what was going on, but I felt overly full again! Fortunately I felt OK enough for a a little run on the treadmill. I ran 1 mile without pain and then switched to the elliptical for 25 minutes. I went back to the treadmill for another s-l-o-w mile of running. Felt ok! When I finished I did a little stretching and some of Alma’s single leg squats.
After a much-needed shower, I decided to make some din-din. I started off with an orange (very juicy!)
And my old standby of peanut butter, honey, and banana on hemp bread. This is so good, but I think I’ve been making it wayyy to often.
My un-air conditioned apartment was feeling pretty toasty, so I broke out the Skinny Cow chocolate truffle bars. Yum! I’m not crazy about the name (don’t really like it when foods are labeled “skinny” or “slim”), but these are delicious! Creamy chocolate ice cream covered in chocolate drizzle for only 100 calories.
