Backtrack: My eating schedule was all off today. I think its because I got up early for my doctor appointment and wound up eating about 60-90 minutes earlier than normal. Or maybe the breakfast cookie didn't fill me up enough...guess I'll just have to test another of those beauties out to see!
I snacked on my banana around 10:30, but was still starving so ate my pita at 11:45. 1/2 of the pita was soggy so I wound up just eating the filling out of that half. The tuna salad and broccoli slaw went perfectly together...
I was meeting Christine for a walk at 12:30 and didn't want to fill up too much, so I saved my apple and Oikos for after our exercise. If I haven't mentioned it before, pink lady apple slices dipped in plain Oikos is divine. :)
Christine and I walked 3 hilly miles in about 50 minutes. I enjoyed having chatty girlfriend time even more than getting out for exercise during lunch...it was a perfect break in my day.
For a snack about 1 hour before spin I ate a chocolate chip Z Bar.
My spin class was right after work, and when I got home Brian had dinner nearly ready! Yummy fresh veggie stir fry on jasmine rice. It was the perfect light meal for after my workout, and so beautiful!
- red bell pepper
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 1 tbsp low sodium soy sauce
- 3 tbsp spicy szechuan sauce
- scallions and sesame seeds on top
I ate about 1/3 of it, on top of 3/4 cup white jasmine rice. Paired with a small glass of wine.
And for dessert a Kozy Shack rice pudding cup with frozen blueberries on top.
It was a great day. I love big activity days because I'm not as concerned with what I consume, and I've learned to still portion things appropriately and not go overboard. It is a very satisfying feeling. :)
I'm still looking for some good upper body workout dvd's...anybody have any suggestions? I'd like something to combine with my running, yoga and occasional spin class...
Have a great night!
