Usually I do a weekend wrap up but I have time for a Saturday update right now and I actually feel like updating, it’s not forced today :)
My day hasn’t been overly eventful. I worked. But I did manage to start my day off with some EXERCISE. I wasn’t hungry upon first waking but I wanted to work some kind of appetite up fairly quickly since I didn’t have a ton of time between my alarm going off and leaving for work, so I did a good 20 minute run on the treadmill first thing. I normally don’t even end up fitting in exercise on Saturdays, so getting an a.m. run in was quite the accomplishment for me.
Then I was about ready for breakfast, and I was craving a Mango Smoothie. Mmmm. It had chocolate protein powder, frozen mango chunks, FF vanilla yogurt, unsweetened vanilla almond milk and ice. Oh, and I threw in some flax and cinnamon. This was SO thick. Practically like a milkshake.
Yeah, I did stand outside the back door just to take this picture. I just like outdoor lighting a heck of a lot better, even on a gloomy day like day.
For lunch I packed a chopped veggie salad with balsamic vinaigrette and dijon mustard, topped with leftover tuna from yesterday’s lunch. I also packed Kashi crackers, which I ate two of with some of the tuna, and an apple and plum, neither of which I ate.
WHY didn’t I eat the fruit? Because I ate some of this instead:
Lunch ordered at work was Chinese. This was my brother’s leftovers. I ate my fair share of that fried rice. If only it was steamed instead… sure was filling though.
Once I got home it was dinner time. My dinner was a little strange…
Broccoli with balsamic spritz, rice crackers, 1% cottage cheese and half a slice of rye with jalapeno hummus and salsa. But these were just all of the foods I felt for so it worked. I also had a plate of some pretty plain salad.
Then for dessert I had a bowl of frozen mango chunks with FF vanilla yogurt, topped with some trail mix stuff I made a while ago plus a crumbled peanut crunch candy thing.
Mmmm. I could eat frozen mango every day. Actually, I think I practically do.
I also drank a LOT of coffee today. I think I’m still feeling its effects. Mmm coffee.
Have a great rest of the weekend everyone!
