Hey there friends!!! Hopefully you all made it through Monday in one piece! 1 down, 4 to go right?
Some of you are asking what else I eat throughout the day, other than dinner so I'm going to share with you.
Disclaimer: I EAT SNACKS!!! I EAT CANDY!! I EAT REAL FOOD!
Now that that's outta the way... onto today's menu. As with any day, I start with 24 oz of water on the drive into work. At work, I drink 2 -6oz cups of coffee. I put 2 tbsp of creamer in each cup. The creamer varies, but I usually buy whatever I want. It doesnt have to be non fat, or sugar free. I figure its better than the 400 calories in a Venti Caramel Macchiato from Starbucks that I REALLY want.
Lunch was a tostada. Same tostada that I had on Thursday night I believe. That will be my lunch of choice this week. Well, up until Wednesday, then Thursday and Friday I gotta figure something else out. I only had enough ground turkey for four meals.
Afternoon snack was supposed to be a Dannon Light and Fit and a Fit and Active string cheese, but that didnt happen because Lesley (co-worker) came in with pretzels, and we dipped them in the whipped peanut butter. BEST.IDEA.EVER! It was really good.
After work I went to the grocery store to pick up a few things and couldnt pass up this little number... oooh boy was it delightful. Totally worth the 110 calories. Russel Stover, you've outdone yourself my friends!!! Thank god I only bought ONE! Had I bought more, I definitely would've eaten them all!!
Then the gym.... as my routine is usually work - gym - home in that order. Today was arms/back/shoulders. Ran 2.5 miles before that for a grand total of 807 calories burned in 70 minutes.
Finally onto dinner..
I was craving a cobb salad! So I made my own version at home.
2 strips of REAL bacon crumbled,
1 small roma tomato
1 oz Kraft Italian Blend shredded cheese
2 tbsp of Bolthouse Farms Ranch dressing (Thank you Lis and Pam for telling me to try this for months now!)
Calories - 278
In addition to the salad, I made 4 oz baked chicken breast, topped with 1/4 cup Ragu Light Parmesan Alfredo and added some sauteed spinach. YUM!
