Today instead of feeling sorry for myself (she works a late shift), I did an hour of yoga. That fat burning dvd I bought at Value Village. It's an hour workout which is awesome. Doesn't raise the heartrate, so doesn't burn a swack of calories, but man does it make my body feel amazing. Then I shook my groove thang to country music for a half hour to get the heart rate up.
This all left me HONGRY for dinner. But wait... let's start at the beginning, shall we?
First off, I woke up to this bit of gardeny goodness:
I growed it!! From a sketti squash I eated, too!!!! Woot!!
What suprised me was how far it had grown by dinnertime. The first pic is at 8am, this second is at 6pm. Holy super growth!! Kinda looks like that talking hungry plant in that movie... I know what I mean.
Okay, food! Breakfast was old faithful. Yes, I enjoy smoothies, green monsters, etc. But I always end up back at oatmeal. I just love this stuff. In the pot was 1/3 cup each of water, porridge and almond breeze, 1 squirt vanilla, and a 1/4 cup craisins. On top was 1T each of almonds and choco chips. Swoon!
Lunch was leftover chicken meat warmed up over spinach with a tablespoon of caesar w/bacon dressing. I love that shit. A half a tomato and a tablespoon of craisins provide the vitamin C for this meal.
Snack was two oatmeal raisin cookies I forgot to take a pic of. *hangs head* But the calories are accounted for and I'm within budget. *leaps for joy*
Dinner came and I was STARVING. A bit of a mishmosh. That's a veggie burger from M&M's on a Dempster's bun (the bun is only 110 calories! zero nutrition, but still!) with a sploosh of sweet chili sauce. Broccoli and a kelp leaf were the veggies. Steamed. Kelp is gross. Gotta tell ya. Bitter. I ate it anyways, cuz it's good for me. That white unidentifiable thing? Yeah, that's called a Rice Roll. Mom suggested it when we were in the asian market. I won't be buying this again. It's entirely flavourless so you have to coat the crap out of it with soy sauce (read: sodium). It tastes... white. Those of you who have been on this journey for a while will understand what I mean by that. Just not worth it to me.
Mind you, I may have overcooked it. I'm going to try it again and see. Nothing like the ol' college try, right? Maybe I can find a less sodium filled way to flavour it. We'll see. I have another 300 grams of it. Which is about two servings.
So that's it for tonight. Not sure that I can have popcorn tonight. I don't really have it in the calorie budget, but I've been jonesing for it. I have a hard time breaking rituals. Tuesday is popcorn day END OF DISCUSSION. *sigh* I miss Biggest Loser. *sigh* I miss popcorn. *sigh* I miss family night. Anyone hear when the next season starts?
*ducks out to check NBC.com*
Gah! It just says "this fall".
Well, off I go... to... sit on my couch? Yeah! I got my new Women's Health in the mail today. Time for some reading.
Love to all!
Thanks for listening,
