Couldn’t resist not having peanut butter oatmeal again. And I think switching up my bowls had made me enjoy it more! I got this bowl from my sister for my birthday and put it in our “entertaining cabinet,” but it makes a perfect size oatmeal bowl, so out it came! Nothing like entertaining my SELF with a new bowl 🙂
Had toast with jam and some Smart Balance for breakfast #1:
Workout was great – 26 minutes elliptical, 16 minutes running (while reading a magazine – that was quite a challenge!!), plus 7 minutes on the stat bike. No time for lifting today 🙁 426 calories burned!
Total breakfast calories: ~550.
Thought of the Day:
It’s easier to just say “no thanks” then it is to have one bite and stop eating:
If you’re watching calories, you shouldn’t accept a slice of cake thinking you’ll have only a taste. “That’s walking to the edge of a cliff, leaning over, and trying not to fall,” says Marlene Schwartz, director of research at the Rudd Center for Food Policy and Obesity. “Don’t set yourself up like that. Instead simply say, ‘No, thank you.'” You don’t have to give a reason, and you’re not being a party pooper for abstaining. “It’s not right to put people in a position where they feel pressured to eat,” Schwartz says.
