I almost forgot about this today! I was trying to think of a creative photo for my Project 365 picture of the day, then remembered I needed to do this. So I captured pictures of what I ate today, plus a bonus!
This morning I could have slept in, but I woke up at 6am. I didn’t have to be to work until 9:30am so it gave me plenty of time to relax and enjoy waking up. I made myself a bowl of Frosted Mini Wheats (Little Bites – I don’t know why but they just taste better!) and had a glass of V8 Fusion Concord Grape Raspberry mixed with sparkling water. Topped my breakfast off with a hard boiled egg and a cup of coffee with 1 tbsp sugar and 2 tbsp milk. Then I sat in the recliner and read until it was time to get ready.
Getting ready included packing my lunch for work. I decided on tuna mixed with Mayo made with Olive Oil – my favorite. I threw in a cup of peach fruit on the bottom yogurt and some wavy potato chips. I got dressed, grabbed my lunch and headed to work!
I had a few more snacks during my work day – I read an email about healthy snacks and the first thing I noticed was popcorn, and after that I just had to have some popcorn. Luckily my coworker keeps a box of it around so I popped us a bag… burnt it… popped another… and enjoyed. I also had one of my Belgian chocolates from Christmas.
When I got home from work, my hubby wasn’t feeling well so he asked me to get him some chicken noodle soup. I wanted to go to the gym for a run, so I went to Planet Fitness, ran 2.3 miles (well, ran about 1.7 miles, walked the rest for warm up and cool down), then stopped at the grocery store to pick up soup and a few other items for the rest of the week. I forgot milk, of course… our milk expired yesterday. Still smells okay. ;) (Really great dietitian there, eh?)
I heated up my husband’s soup when I got home and decided to have some soup for supper myself. I had Campbell’s Chunky Chicken Quesadilla soup which was yummy. I had some tortilla chips and Garden Fresh Gourmet salsa on the side. Ooooh, I love GFG’s Sweet Onion salsa. DEEEE-LISH!
So my photo of the day is also worthy of sharing:
This was the workout that I did this morning since I had so much time before I had to go to work. I absolutely love this workout video. I am not a huge fan of strength training, I find it really boring, and I don’t really like to do it in front of people at the gym because I am really weak. This workout has a lot of bang for your buck since most of the moves involve multiple muscle groups. There are three workouts: a 15 minute upper & lower body strength routine, a 15 minute core & total body strength routine, and a 15 minute quick cardio workout. The moves are easy enough for me to do, but also effective – I am always sore the day after I do this video!
Well that’s about it from me. I am dozing off while I am sitting here typing this out, so I think that means it is time for me to get some shuteye!
