Made a new oatmeal recipe today!!! It was delicious:
- Silk Vanilla Soymilk (which I used a cup of and it didn’t absorb well – next time I’ll go back to half skim/water)
- 3 oz homemade sugar-free cranberry sauce
- 20 grams toasted walnuts (this was a lot of calories – might switch back to toasted almonds)
- Splash egg whites (to firm up the liquidy oats – but this actually might be a new addition of mine for the extra protein. Kind of like an oatmeal pancake! And the egg whites don’t even have to be cooked, but I still microwaved it for 30 seconds.)
Before my workout – 3.5 oz banana with 5 grams PB:
Workout was 45 minutes elliptical (i’m STILL sore from hiking uphill and thought the stairmaster might be a bad idea!) and then I got in some good upper body lifting. 380 calories burned.
Total Breakfast Calories: ~530.
I went shopping yesterday (Happy Birthday to me on Friday – I decided to shop BEFORE my birthday this year so I’d have nice clothes to wear ON it!!) Got three pairs of pants for $80 at Ann Taylor Loft (I had coupons). One of the pairs was only THREE DOLLARS!!!!!!! $3.77 – amazing! They are awesome, fit me perfectly, and go really well with my new orange sweater and Aerosoles wedges that I bought. It’s a total Fall outfit and it’s putting me in a really good mood! And for someone with short, stocky legs, I sure look long and lean in these pants! I also got 2 sweaters at Old Navy. I’m all set for Fall! Except that I still can’t find jeans that fit….
I’ve got a great lunch today!!!
