I’m extra hungry today, probably a result of too few calories yesterday, which is a result of too many the day before! Argh, I hate getting out of my groove.
I had a cup of pumpkin tea at 10:30 to help keep my mind off of it. Sometimes I do struggle to keep from snacking! It did the trick, as I probably just wanted to snack and wasn’t really hungry. Water works!
I was going to have a bagel sandwich, but I decided that 5 oz of bagel is too much for one sitting. Perhaps not if that was all had for lunch, but I wanted to add in some dairy, veggies and fruit, and combining all that with the bagel was too much. So I had an open-faced bagel, which ended up being the perfect size!!
Smoked salmon and Laughing Cow on a Rye bagel from Hot Bagel Co.
On the side I had a salad made with romaine lettuce (I’m taking a break from spinach!), Pom seeds, last week’s leftover spaghetti squash and walnut oil for dressing. I love the nutty taste of walnut oil. I used 1/2 a tsp – just enough to coat each leaf when shaken in a ziplock bag.
Also had orange sections:
And pumpkin yogurt with Fiber One (they are STILL out of cranberries at the store! What will I do!?!?)
All together for 550 kcal:
33 minute walk = cold!! I talked to the husband on my cell for a bit and then read an Everyday Food magazine. My hands were FROZEN when I got back! And it’s not even that cold out there. Maybe mid-40s! When it gets even colder I have to add gloves and a scarf, which makes turning magazine pages difficult.
Gotta get workin’!
