Have you guys seen this Self article? Really interesting actually. I feel like when PB and I get married this will be what I’ll want to do every week, except not to this extent. and well, let’s face it it probs won’t happen. I hope to be able to plan out meals ahead for a week instead of just buying what I intuitively think I need and then making up recipes as I go along. Some people might think that is better and more advanced (because, well, let’s be serious, it IS) but I think it would be nice to just take the thinking out of it all. Plan it all ahead and then you just know what to cook every day. Kind of like my exercise schedule. I don’t just decide what I feel like, I have a planned schedule that I pretty much stick to. Anyway, a girl can dream.
This afternoon for snack I had pumpkin yogurt (Kath’s recipe) with 10 g slivered almonds, 1/2 serving honey graham sticks, and 7 g mini chocolate chips.
Pretty detailed ay? That’s because I am counting calories again. I am not obsessive about it in any way, but I want to keep track of my intake in calories as well as different nutrients and such. I am trying to have more whole foods in my diet and it is hard to know if I’m successful if I am not writing my food out somewhere. Also, as I mentioned last week the scale was up a lb (which is gone, by the way), and I don’t want that to happen again. I want to be losing! not maintaining or slightly gaining. I don’t mind this because I have goals to reach, and tangible numbers = good for reaching goals!
anywayyyyyyyyyyyy, on to my day. After work I went home to do my errands and then headed to the gym. I got on the treadmill for 35 minutes and did about 3 miles (the first 2.5 were between 6.5 and 8.0 and then I did the last 1/2 mile between 3.5 and 4.1). Then I alternated leg exercises and jumping rope for 25 minutes. My body is so tired!
After a shower and such I had an amazing dinner. A sliced cucumber and a sliced tomato, plus a portobello mushroom and olive spread sandwich on Arnold’s sandwich thins. Have you tried these? They are amazing!
Oooh and dessert? A yummy orange and a big cup of tea.
Question: My washing machine is not draining my clothes all the way, so when I go to take them out they are sopping wet. Anyone know how to fix that problem?!
I’m off to bed! soooo sleeeeeeeepyyyyyy!
