I stayed home from work yesterday because my daughter was sick with a stomach bug and although by night she seemed to feel pretty good, she still wasn't eating. She wanted to go to school but I said no, she needed another day to get her strength. She begged to go to school and I said no. It was a weird conversation.
So I'm home with her again today.
Yesterday I ate:
B - 2 sardines, 1 Wasa cracker, hummus, celery
S - green salad, lf feta cheese, sun-dried tomatoes, small handful roasted chickpeas
L - quinoa, roasted broccolli and cauliflower, peanutbutter/tamari sause, lf cheesestick
D - crockpot chicken breast, beans, hot salsa, slivers of cheese
exercise - none
I think today's menu will be pretty much identical, but I think I'll leave off the cheese at dinner. And somewhere in that menu I'll add a heaping serving of swiss chard because I've got some in my fridge that needs to be cooked up.
I am very much looking forward to getting on the scale Saturday. I'd sneak a peak today but since I'm a bit crampy and bloated, I'm afraid I might see a diappointing number. So, Saturday's the day! Plus I'll be entering Phase 2 on Saturday!
Just got off the treadmill where I had two workouts. The first one was intervals and even though it was short, it was really hard for me. I got a bit woozy which bummed me out, but it gives me something to aim for, right? The workout was 4.0mph for 3 minutes, 5.5mph for 7 minutes and I think I did the workout for about 30 minutes. My daughter needed me, so I stopped to tend to her, and all i really paid attention to was the calories burned which was 270. So, about a half hour later, I put on the TV and did longer, more relaxed workout for 44 minutes, burning an additional 300 calories.
I burned 570 calories total.
(Okay, this post is starting to get ridiculous. Looks as though I'm getting a little OCD about the SBD, OMG!)
Here's what I ate today:
B - 2 sardines, 1 Wasa cracker, celery, hummus
S - salad, same as yesterday
L - collards, turkey ham, avocado (not a tasty lunch. oh well.)
D - 1/2 chicken breast, black beans, quinoa
exercise - treadmill, 570 calories burned
