Okay on to the food....
I went to the gym this morning for a 6am spin class that lasted 40 minutes. Morning spin always makes me feel so ready to start my day. My heart rate monitor said I burned 310 calories.
I pack my breakfast to eat at the office and today it was muesli with 1/3 oats, 2/3 vanilla almond milk, 1/8 cup dried fruit, 1/8 unsweetened coconut, 1 tbsp sliced almonds, and a ripe peach.
I had a two hour office meeting which was from 10am - 12pm and breakfast was served (which is odd to me because I eat breakfast at 8am and could never wait until 10am). Although everyone eating (Panera bagels, pastries, and fresh fruit) around me made me want to eat too I stayed away from the goodies and had a hot tea and ice water.
But as soon as I got back to my office I was ready to eat my lunch. I packed the left over bean salad from our party (less than 1/2 cup) and mixed it with about 1 cup of left over Mexican rice (brown rice mixed with salsa) and 1 tbsp of guacamole. I also had 1 serving of baked tostitos and 2 small tomatoes. This picture makes my lunch look huge, but that was only 1 1/2 of the rice mixture!!
Later in the day for a snack I had some seedless watermelon. I love watermelon in the summer and I feel that you get so much food for not so many calories.
My husband had his MBA classes tonight so dinner was on my own and I didn't feel like dirtying any pots and pans, so I just had a left over piece of pizza from yesterday and some romaine lettuce and baby carrots with 1 tbsp of Annie's Goddess Dressing. This really made my belly happy and ready for Pilates.
I also had to try the cookies I made last night and make sure my husband was telling me the truth about how good they are. I agree they are yummy. I put mine in the microwave for 15 seconds and it was delish!!
I'm off to relax for 20 minutes or so then it is off to bed by 10 am so I can be up tomorrow morning by 5:30 am for the gym!!
