I know I was MIA yesterday – no excuses really, I just didn’t feel like blogging. Here’s a recap of Wednesday:
Breakfast cookie made with 1/2 cup oats, splash skim milk, 1 tsp cocoa, 1/2 scoop unflavored whey protein, and 1 Tbsp peanut butter
1/2 cup egg substitute with a bit of sea salt
Green beans, 1/2 cup couscous, 1/4 block tofu, pat Earth Balance margarine, & 1 Tbsp champagne vinegar…
…hard boiled egg…
…and an apple.
Kashi bar around 2:30pm
Fresh cucumber slices…
…and 1/2 cup yogurt with homemade strawberry glaze around 5pm.
carrots and hummus
homemade pizza (see recipe page)
I had good intentions on Wednesday – went for a 45 minute walk during work and planned on working out when I got home, but I talked myself out of it. I watched DVR’d episodes of The Cleaner instead – slacker. This was followed by some mindless munching – Kashi crackers with peanut butter, cereal, Kashi cookies, sunchips, and a few mini Twix bars. Technically I should say binge instead of munching…munching sounds so much better though. Moral of the story – I have to blog every day even if I don’t feel like it. Also, I am allowed to take a day off from working out, but shouldn’t feel guilty and let that turn into eating unnecessary stuff.
Enough about that…today I will not continue yesterday’s cycle. Wasn’t feeling that hungry because of all the junk last night, so I decided on a light smoothie:
– 1/2 cup frozen strawberries
– 1/2 frozen peach
– 1/2 frozen banana
– 8 oz skim milk
– 1 scoop unflavored whey protein
– 1 tsp agave nectar
Now I’m ready to take on the day. Today’s agenda includes working out, a haircut/highlight, hanging out with my sister-in-law, and whatever else I feel like accomplishing. Glad to be back! 🙂
