packin' it up

Andrea

Good evening!  I had a very long day again today, but it started with a RUN!  That's right, I was in bed last night by 11:10pm and up at 6:05am...whippee! My hubb and I ran 3 miles.  It felt great to be out stretching my legs as the sun was rising and I got a little thrill each time today when I remembered that I had ALREADY worked out.  Love that!  I really need to make this whole morning run thing part of my regular routine...  Its especially helpful during these busy weeks at the office when the last thing I want to do at the end of the day is work out.

Exercise:  3-mile run

So I knew that today would be a long day, and I packed up plenty of food to sustain me through breakfast, lunch and dinner.  It wound up being an intuitive eating day, I just snacked my way through whenever I found a spare moment.

Breakfast:  1/2 cup Fage 0% with 1/2 banana, 1/4 cup TJ's pumpkin spice granola and 2 chopped figs.

For lunch I made my hubb a couple of mexi-wraps because we were out of lunch meat (his typical packed lunch of choice).  They looked SO good that I decided to make one for myself too.

Lunch:  mexi-wrap made with whole wheat tortilla, spinach, salsa, black beans, frozen corn, black olives, red bell pepper, 1 tbsp monterrey jack cheese and green onions

Snacks:  I packed grapes and a pear, but wound up saving my pear for later.  I did go on a walk to the coffee shop with my hubb and gave in to a gluten-free chocolate biscotti - it was just one of those kind of days.

[grapes = 110 cal, biscotti = 280 (a went with the highest calorie count I found on myfooddiary...it was a big biscotti)]

For dinner I packed myself some leftover lentil chili on top of a bed of spinach.  When I heated the dish it made the spinach all wilty...it was so good in the chili!  So good that I think I'll consider actually adding spinach directly to the chili next time I make it.

Dinner:  leftover chili on spinach

When I finally got home I was craving some dessert  My pear made a reappearance...in a snackie dessert bowl!

Dessert:  6oz Oikos honey-flavored yogurt, 1 sliced pear and 3 lemon snaps, crumbled

See what I mean?  It was such a snackie, intuitive day full of little 250 cal - 350 cal meals.  I actually really liked it, and my numbers aren't too bad either.

Daily Totals:

  • calories consumed = 1598

  • calories expelled = 318

  • net calories = 1280


Alright, I'm going to go catch up with my hubb and shoot for an 11pm bed time again.  Maybe I'll do some yoga in the morning, since I missed tonight's class again!!!  Darn project deadlines.  I'm sorry I haven't answered any comments yesterday or today...I'll get there soon, promise.  I miss reading all of your blogs, too!  Hopefully I can catch up soon.  Oh!  I did catch in my reader that Meghann is having a contest to give away an awesome sports bra!!!  Be sure to check it out, or not, so that I have a better chance of winning!  :) Can I win if I'm family?!?

G'night!
