Tonight I have my nutrition class, which I’m taking at a local university to learn more about the body and the physiology behind nutrition, so I won’t be home until 9 p.m. It’s gonna be a long day!! But I get to have dinner at the dining hall, which is always exciting and will try my best to post dinner after class.
Got great sleep last night. I told the husband I was NOT allowed to be on my computer past 8pm, so he had to pry my hands from the keyboard to get me off! I was so glad he did though, because 30 minutes of reading (I’m reading the novel Rise and Shine) was just what I needed to unwind. Lights out at 9:00, and I got a great 8 hours of sleep. Much improved from Tuesday!!
I decided on half a Kashi bar before my workout this morning and saved the other half for a snack during class tonight. Mid-workout I started to get really hungry. Although my normal toast + jam isn’t that many more calories, it certainly holds over better.
Workout was ET and upper body lifting. It’s not good to have RAGE at 5:30 in the morning, but this woman on the ET beside me was hacking up a lung – rhythmically – and I just couldn’t take it anymore, so after 7 minutes I picked up my magazine and went to another ET in another room. Uggggg. If you can’t get through 2 breaths without eating your snot, GO HOME!!! Gross. 426 calories burned.
Had my favorite: Peanut Butter + Walnut Oatmeal with a small amount of chopped pear and banana in there somewhere. It was quite filling!!
And decaf coffee:
Back to volumetrics, I just love oatmeal because it’s so voluminous (but not instant because then you get half the amount but the real kind!) and I’m always full when I finish it. Volume eaters love to feel full 🙂 I just eat the Old Fashioned Oats, but I like the Quick Oats and Steel Cut as well. Quicks are better for oatmeal pancakes and steel cut when you have an hour to cook them, which isn’t often!
Breakfast calories: ~500 (not including half of Kashi bar for tonight’s snack)
I can’t take the lightrail today because of my class tonight, but I’ll be back on it tomorrow!
