On to the eats!
For breakfast today, it was the homade McMuffin. That's a whole wheat english muffin with .75 ounces of baked ham, 1/4 cup egg white, a tablespoon of asiago and a bloop of horseradish mustard. On the side is a 1/2 cup of fresh cut pineapple and a tablespoon of toasted almonds. Served with milk and vitamins brings this to 454 calories of yummy goodness.
Breakfast kept me full from 7:30am until after my yoga. But as soon as that DVD was off, at 12:55, I was rustling in the kitchen, lemme tell ya! I have here 2oz of baby greens, a Highliner salmon filet, 1/4 cup craisins, 10 grams of blue cheese, 20 grams of green olives, 1/2 of an egg white, and a tablespoon of Basil Oregano dressing. Oh, I had to laugh, though... After doing all this prep, and setting up my plate beautifully and snapping that picture *DUMP* it all went into a big mixing bowl to be swirled around and chopped up for easy shovelling. LOLOL It made me wonder if other bloggers do this, too.
I was halfway done my salad when I remembered that I could have a piece of garlic bread!! Damn, have to have THAT!! Yummy yummy yummy yummy yummy, all the way back to the kitchen, doing the happy food dance. The dogs were rather excited until they realized the dance was not on their behalf. Silly dogs... it never is. But they live in perpetual hope. So this is 1/2 an english muffin with 1 teaspoon of Buttery Becel, a sprinkle of garlic powder, and a tablespoon of shredded asiago, toasted in the toaster oven. SO GOOD!!! And it rounded out my lunch to a whopping 445 calories!
Dinner was running late, so I had to improvise. This wasn't ON the plan, but it sufficed. And the calories are noted and I'm still within my daily budget, so it's all good. It's just that tater tots are not the most nutrionally sound item I could have made. Sigh. Ah well! On the plate is curried chicken burgers, 10 tater tots, and 1 ounce of spinach. Topped with 1 tablespoon of ranch and a side of 2 tablespoons of Blue Menu Ketchup Style Sauce. 531 calories.
I forgot to snap a pic of the apple I grabbed on my way out the door this afternoon for an additional 55 calories, bringing my daily total to 1486, with two workouts under my belt. Am I happy with that? Hells yes!!
Well, that's all I have for you today. I have to go get ready for my second workout, then I have another hour or so of work left to do. Busy busy busy!!
