My snacks from last night:
a small peach…
…and 4 oz of skim milk
I was still hungry as I was trying to fall asleep, so I had a cheese stick around 11 as well (unpictured).
Now another Monday draws to a close…it’s been a jam-packed day on too little sleep. I went to bed last night at 10:30 but didn’t fall asleep until well after midnight. This insomnia thing has got to improve! I didn’t have to be at work until 9am, so I mentally cancelled my workout last night and reset my alarm for 8. Luckily, I awoke at 7:15 and decided I would feel better if I worked out – I did a quick 30 minutes on the elliptical followed by breakfast:
A slice of my veggie-rific egg substitute casserole (see recipe page) from the freezer…
…and overnight oatmeal (1/4 cup nonfat plain yogurt, 1/4 cup almond breeze, 1/3 cup oatmeal) topped with 1/2 oz almonds and a drizzle of agave nectar. The egg casserole wasn’t as good this time around – it was pretty watery, but it was quick and easy so I can’t complain. The combo lasted me until lunch around 12:30. I brought a leftover burger from last night, but decided I would save that for tomorrow’s lunch since I had plans to go out for burgers at dinner. Instead I had the following:
…cucumbers from the farmer’s market (you can definitely tell the difference in taste!), carrots, and a slice of rye with 2 Tbsp fresh ground almond butter & a drizzle of agave nectar. I ended the meal with 1/2 cup Greek yogurt topped with a bit of the strawberry glaze I made last night.
Looks sort of gross, but it was tasty!
After lunch, Renee (one of the other RDs at my office) and I went for a 30 minute walk. So refreshing! Lunch lasted me until 4, and then I decided it was time for a snack.
This one’s self-explanatory 😉
Dinner was girls’ night out with Renee and Arielle – we went to Big Daddy’s Burger Bar. The names implies grease pit, so I was shocked at the selection of healthier fare. There was a huge selection of burgers and “fixins” along with entree salads; you could even create your own salad, which I decided was my best bet. I chose the buffalo burger on a bed of romaine lettuce, mushrooms, chickpeas, cucumbers, tomatoes, fresh mozzarella cheese, and pecans/balsamic vinaigrette on the side.
I am proud to say I took my first food picture in public! Granted it’s not too odd in front of an RD and fitness trainer, but it’s a start, right?
This was my first experience with bison and after this tasty burger, I’m a fan! I finished all of the burger, most of the salad, 1/2 the nuts, and 1/4 of the dressing (which was really thick for a vinaigrette)…
I wasn’t that hungry after dinner, but still wanted something sweet to end the night…
1/2 cup each Peanut Butter Bumpers and Kashi Mighty Bites with skim milk
Going to catch up on reading blogs, and then it’s off to bed. Nighty nite! 🙂
