Day two with a vengeance, bay-beee!!!
First thing this morning I got up and did 40 minutes of yoga. Ya, I did! Then I bopped my way into my kitchen and did a weeks worth of porridge. Ya, I did! Then I planned my food for the day. Ya, I did!!
Breakfast was the usual suspect… 1/4 cup oatmeal, 3 strawberries, 1 tsp honey, milk and vitamins. Calories: 234
Lunch was 4oz cod, 1/4 tomato, and 20 grams of sprouts on a flax wrap. Sadly, I was talking on the phone when I made it, so I totally forgot to take a pic. Look at yesterdays wrap and think fish and sprouts instead of egg and spinach. Squint sideways and you’ll see it, lol. Calories: 290
Snack was OHMYGOD good! Those that don’t like fruit and cheese pairing look away…
Still with me? Then check THIS out:
Doesn’t that look utterly delish?? Yeah, it was!! Calories: 133
Dinner is a chicken breast, sprinkled with cummin, garlic powder and cayenne pepper. A cup each of steamed broccoli & cabbage stir fry (garlic, onions, carrot and cabbage) rounds it out. Calories: 353
And tonight is Biggest Loser. Which means popcorn. But not ridiculous popcorn covered in butter. Oh no… I’m on PLAN. So, it’s 8 cups of popcorn with one fluid ounce of diet margarine. I normally don’t do diet products but I’ll make the exception here. Butter and regular margarine are stupid high in calories, and I’m not willing to waste my calories there. However, I cannot do plain popcorn and be happy. Calories: 348
So, for the entire day, that’s a total of 1358 calories. Not bad!
Hubby and I are going to take the doggies for a walk as soon as the dishes are done (hint hint, darling, get on it, if you are reading over my shoulder). That will be my second “workout”. *shrug* In my Women’s Fitness they count it as such, so I shall, too. I used to say that anything that did not involve a couch and my ass was working out. I need to get back there to that kind of thinking.
I say that because I became discouraged once I got a HRM and realized how few calories things like that do burn. However, because of that, I stopped doing anything, which means I lost the burn of those things, which was pretty stupid, really. So I’m only going to use my HRM when I run. Otherwise, I will just move my ass.
Okay, off to shoo the hubby into the kitchen (he obviously was NOT reading over my shoulder). Have a good one!
