I don’t know how people live there. The outdoors are simply off-limits when it’s snowy and windy! You have to live 100% indoors. That sucks!
Lunch was a disappointment. I started with a club sandwich with swiss, turkey and ham Also had a plate of fruit, a pickle and 2 bites of Christmas cookies!
When I opened the sandwich, however, I discovered it was COVERED in mayo (full fat, most likely). I thought I could just take off one slice of bread and eat it open faced. Then I discovered the ham was really salty. At that point I went back for a wrap to try to change directions! I kept the original turkey and tomato though, so I ate parts of that.
The new wrap was chicken, mushroom and Italian dressing, but luckily the dressing was only on one side. I ate pieces of the chicken and some of the mushrooms and about 2/3 of the tortilla (which I’m sure was not whole wheat despite it’s color and probably had trans-fats in it 🙁 )
I ate all my fruit plus some more since I was still hungry and not feeling very satisfied. The second plate isn’t pictured.
The cookies were delicious and really hit the spot!
So I had two more bites, one pictured here.
My stomach was unhappy when our meetings resumed, but more significantly my brain was unsatisfied with the lunch. I should have just eaten the first sandwich without the ham, but oh well. I still felt hungry, but it calmed after 20 minutes or so so I guess I just had to catch up.
I had a kashi bar at the airport – where I couldn’t get the WiFi to work :angry: Sorry, no photo.
I was starving when my flight took off at 4:45 and welcomed a 60-calorie pack of soy nuts, pretzels, and sesame sticks. And a seltzer.
Had only 45 minutes to grab something to eat in Washington, but since I’d spent 5 hours there the day before I knew my options. I was craving a salad, so salad it was. The California Chicken with sun-dried tomatoes, soggy croutons, kalamata olives, and a garliky but good avocado dressing of which I had about a tsp. After starting to eat, I had to take dinner on the plane because we started to board – not quite the ideal dining experience!
Also grabbed more fresh fruit, which seems to be the world’s #1 grab and go healthy food. Some of my grapes were rotten though 🙁
The whole she-bang, including my LaraBar for dessert! Total calories ~ 631. I needed the fuel!
I don’t eat bars that much, but they’re hard to beat when you’re on the go. I like LaraBars, but I don’t eat them often because they are on the high-cal side. But this seemed like the perfect dessert considering my dinner only totaled about 400 calories and I was pretty low over the day, all things considered. I ate this guy really slowly and he was great. Really hit the spot.
Total Tuesday calories: ~ 1665
– 444 through morning workout. I’m sure I burned more through airport walking and lugging my bags around, but I have no way of guessing. Maybe add 100?
=net of 1221 ish.
