Today was great – a good recovery day. I think my body knew it had overindulged because it wasn’t really that hungry today. My total calories and net are pretty low, but I’m not worried because of the high numbers yesterday. Tomorrow I’ll get back to my normal goals.
It’s amazing how gross I looked and felt this morning – my eyes were so puffy, I was retaining tons of water (and of course felt really fat although I knew it was just water weight). And I just felt blah! I can’t believe there are people who eat that poorly all. the. time. Poor people!
Thank you ALL for the comments on my post last night. You really helped me remember that it was only one day of the year!!!
We got to the husband’s grandmother’s and made oatmeal pancakes for breakfast. I had to make it with a whole egg instead of whites and it turned out great! I even found some walnuts! Held me at least 4 hours too. Had a cup of coffee too.
We hit the road at 10:00 and stopped into Hot Bagel Co. again for cappuccinos compliments of Aunt Donna, who requested that I tell you all how delicious their bagels are. They ship all over the country!! My cappuccino was great!! I ordered a small with skim milk and sprinkled some chocolate powder on top for the photo.
For the car ride we packed turkey sandwiches on Ezekiel bread (that we bought that morning). I added pickle, lettuce and a bit of pumpkin butter to mine. Dee-licious! I ate around 1:00 and tried to let myself get hungry before having it.
Also had an apple, but it was mealy and gross and I only ate about 5 bites before it was recycled to the earth.
Snack + Workout
4 hours later, we got home, unpacked, had a quick snack and went STRAIGHT to the gym! I knew if we waited we wouldn’t end up going so we decided before we even got home that we’d go ASAP. Before I left I had a few graham sticks and a small glass of milk to get some glucose in my blood since I had such a small lunch. These graham sicks aren’t whole wheat, but they are made with all-natural ingredients and are small enough to be able to have just a few. I probably wouldn’t eat more than a half serving (~65 kcal) at a time though.
30 minutes on the elliptical and 15 weights made me feel a lot better! 350 calories burned.
After a quick trip to the grocery store, we decided on soup for dinner. Nice and healthy. We brought home this HUGE tub of leftover roasted veggies…
I added a small carton of Pacific brand butternut squash to make a base. We simmered the veggies on low for about 15 minutes.
Then we pureed them with our stick blender – a must if you like soups!!!! The soup was SOOOO good!! The roasted veggies were pretty high in calorie, but overall it was a fine portion.
Kashis on the side:
Total dinner calories: 495.
Total Sunday calories: 1230. Really low, I know. But I just wasn’t that hungry today and felt I shouldn’t eat if I wasn’t feeling it.
My last full week of work! We have our holiday party on Tuesday night – another dangerous event!! I think I’m going to skip alcohol altogether for 2 reasons
1) It’s a school night and I don’t need a hangover at 4:50 a.m. when I get up to workout.
2) If I have a club soda and lime in my hand, I won’t even miss the wine at an occasion like this.
I’ve got a great lunch packed tomorrow, including a rye bagel from Aunt Donna! Can’t wait to see it.
