Yesterday’s workout was bad. There. I said it. It’s over. After a short run and an ab workout, I called it quits. Today will certainly be better. I’ll show that elliptical who’s boss!
You know what time it is – time for another What I Ate Wednesday (WIAW). Woohoo! Check out the blog hop Jennifer set up at Peas and Crayons to see the other good Wednesday eats.
The day began with a pre-gym rice cake, and then I followed up with a post-workout hardboiled egg. Yum! Two hours later, I had the last part of my three-part breakfast- oats, berries, flax and almonds.
I usually have fruit with 1/2 cup of oats, but after a stranger in the break room told me I was eating enough for two last week (yeah… total jerk… hope I never meet him), I backed it down to 1/3 cup this week. I added in a 50-calorie mix of raw almonds and ground flax to make up the difference.
For lunch all week, I have had a mini TJs whole wheat wrap with about 1/2 a large chicken breast, some spinach, and a little bit of red pepper. I also had a side salad with grape tomatoes and goddess dressing. Yum! That’s a pretty low-calorie lunch, and because it left me starving at by dinner time on Monday, I supplemented with an apple the rest of the week.
Snack is a delicious portion of Daisy 2% Cottage Cheese and 7 baby carrots. I hadn’t had Daisy brand before, but I’m now a fan- not a Facebook fan, just a fan.
I planned to have a great cob salad Tuesday and Wednesday night in order to celebrate the start of summer. As many of you pointed out yesterday, summer produce is worth a bit of excitement.
The salad consists of lettuce, red bell pepper, cucumber, red onion, steamed corn, 2 slices of preservative-free turkey bacon, and a pack of Wholly Guacamole. Holy Moly, Wholly Guac is good! I look forward to eating it again tonight.
I’ll probably also have a bit of popcorn and almonds for dessert. What’s a day without a treat? Also, for those who were wondering, I think my good skin diet has helped give my skin a little more of a glow, but I’m still breaking out like crazy. Oh well – I’ll keep it up a bit longer and see how it goes.
What’s the best thing you’ve eaten this week? My fro-yo lunch Sunday might take the cake so far.
What do you do or say when a stranger comments on your eating habits? I smiled, but was fuming inside! haha
