Today sure is gloomy – from the cloudy weather to the lack of endorphins from a morning workout to my constant hunger! But my 45 minute walk after lunch improved my mood a lot. Husband is working nearby and we may go running after work – more for the change of scenery and stress relief than anything else. We’ll see if the rain holds out.
I did have 150-200 calories less before I came to work today, so that’s probably why I was still very hungry despite not having burned 350-400 at the gym. I snacked on some trail mix at 10:00 and had tea.
PB&J (less PB and more J this time on husband’s homemade bread). This was almost 200 calories in bread – hard to tell if it was worth it.
Mixed greens with walnut oil (1/2 tsp) and a drizzle of lime. Simple, but green.
4 oz of cut up pear:
And pita chips:
All together for ~450 calories
I packed a yogurt and cranberry too, but I saved it for a mid-afternoon snack since I’m trying to cut back on the calories a little today from no workout. But if I go running I guess I’ll need a bigger dinner! Another reason why AM workouts are good – you know your calories for the day and can spread them out more evenly!
