Yesterday I called in to take a day off work. I had a migraine (on Sunday). I spent most of the day studying and doing laundry (all the things I couldn’t do on Sunday).
Here’s what yesterday looked like.
At about 7am, I completed my daily run. 50 minutes of running, 10 minutes of warm up / cool down and 20 minutes of stretching. Speed was around 4.6 mph (I know I am slow) and total distance was about 4.10 miles.
Around noon, I ate breakfast. Breakfast was a green monster smoothie with almond milk, vanilla kefir, rawmazing wheat grass powder, brown rice protein powder, a frozen half-banana and a half tablespoon of almond butter. While I was making the smoothie, my hubby offered a bite of his gluten free toast, so I snuck one or two bites in. And then I took lots of vitamins. I know it was a late breakfast, but that is how I roll.
At about 3pm, I ate lunch. I had brown rice and a tasty bite meal (aloo palak – potatoes, spinach and spices). I finished the meal with a slice of Lydia’s sunflower bread (more like a cracker – its dehydrated) slathered with hummus.
At around 7 pm, I ate dinner. I had White Bean Soup and another slice of Lydia’s bread + hummus. I had not eaten any snacks so I decided to have some gorilla munch + yogurt for “dessert” (sorry, no pic).
After all was said and done, it was an impressive day. 1633 calories. That is the first day I have done that in a loooong time! Except Sunday, which was 1559 calories. I know my food looked very drab in green and brown, but I swear it was all very tasty.
I was very motivated all day, so it made it easy to stick to the plan. But I did miss snacking. When I’m at home I tend to take a little bit of this, one or two of that, etc. Its practically automatic. When I’m at work its usually candy and chocolate. But the fact that I made it without snacking (which I honestly think may be hardest to avoid at home) makes me know I can do it again!
