I’m sorry for another late post – I didn’t even have time to finish my lunch! I hope it’s OK with y’all if I post lunches in the afternoon on Tuesday and Thursdays – there’s just no way for me to eat and blog before class unless I ate at 11 a.m.!
Workout was quick, but refreshing. 40 minutes ET and some stretching. ~315 kcal burned.
I was headed out the door around 11 and realized I was starving, so I quickly packed some Kashi Heart to Heart and 1 date to eat in the car. Lunch was only an hour away so I didn’t want to eat too much, but I needed something to restore my fuel post-workout!
Got to the athletic building where Christy and I met for a quick lunch. I brought a plate with me to make it prettier! Although I guess that’s a little wasteful. I’m working on how to be efficient and organized with my lunches without producing too much trash but not having tupperware tumbling around in my backpack all day.
I had a black bean, avocado and cheese sandwich on the husband’s rustic sourdough, which was FABULOUS by the way. Would have been even better toasted! I mashed about 1/8 of a cup of leftover black beans, sliced avocado and topped with 1/2 a slice of chipotle cheese
And a new portable trick – whipped cottage cheese in a bag! I “squirted” it out onto my plate – no need for a huge plastic container. This looks really gross, but that is delicious strawberry-rhubarb jam in there -
A few of the Kashi cheddar crackers (I like them, but they don’t compare at all to the 7-grain and sesame)
Leftover carrot sticks from the dining hall yesterday!
I packed an apple too, but I didn’t get to eat it. Lunch calories were only 440 because of no apple
In between our Dietetics class (which is GREAT and going to be really helpful to learning more about careers in nutrition and all the options out there) Christy and I did 30 minutes of walking at the indoor track, which is just a 5 minute walk from our class. SOOOO CONVENIENT!!!
With the walk and small lunch, I was starving during Cultural Foods so I had to sneak out about 5 almonds and a mini box of raisins. Luckily I was in the back row so no one noticed -
NOTE: This is a reenactment! I did not stop the class to take a photo of my snack
I was still starving when I got home around 4 and spent the whole 30 minute drive home debating what to have. I wanted something warm, filling, and sweet rather than savory. I chose my pumpkin pie cake topped with 8 honey graham sticks and a drizzle of maple syrup. It’s still settling, but it was good!!
Snack calories include almonds + raisins = ~200.
Tonight I’m on my own while the husband goes to his class (he’s taking Financial Accounting in an effort to improve his resume). I’m having leftover pea soup, bread and might have some wine! I LOVE having wine when I’m home alone – I feel like I’m in the movies or something!
And I’ll be doing homework too OK, it’s not that bad and I’m kind of excited about tonight’s topics
