I am all sweaty and gross. I cannot wait to crawl into bed with my husband and my baby.
And by baby- I actually mean my dog. I didn't give birth in the last 24 hours. He's a really cute dog though. Cuter then most babies, in fact.
More on my sweaty grossness later.
First. The eats.
I woke up way too early this morning and was out and about with my dad, uncle and husband.
We stopped at Starbucks. I got my typical drink of course and then started trying to figure out some sort of breakfast-type-eating-food-thing. I wanted something lighter than their sandwiches and didn't want to pay $4 for plain old oatmeal. Eventually I found some kind of raw gojiberry energy bar. Then I looked at the back "nutritional facts" and then I picked up the bag of chips sitting next to it and looked at those "nutritional facts".
The chips won. More fiber + vitamin a. Plus they were $3 cheaper and probably more delicious too.
So breakfast was these. Unconventionally awesome.
Check out the facts.
Not bad for "chips".
I had 75 calories worth of creamer in my coffee(s) this morning. Stupid Starbucks doesn't carry non fat half and half or else my calorie count would be significantly less.
For lunch I had a salad. Butter leaf lettuce, salami, mozzarella, an egg, 2 black olives (that's all my dad would share with me) and a dressing I concocted on the spot. It was good. A teaspoon and a half of mayo, 2 teaspoons of percent milk, mustard, pepper, fresh crushed garlic and a tablespoon of parmesan cheese.
290 calories. Left my breath tasting garlicky for hours.
Wasn't satisfied with the salad so I made this smoothie afterwards.
Frozen blueberries, strawberries, water, ice, sweetener, vanilla and a bit of greek yogurt.
Tasted like garlic. (By the way, have you ever had garlic ice cream? It sounds strange, I know. But it's actually quite delicious.) 95 calories.
Dinner was another salad on account of I bought a 3 pound bag of lettuce and wanna use it up before it goes bad.
This one had chicken, reduced fat feta cheese, kalamata olives and balsamic dressing. 200 calories. I had also some watermelon with it. 75 calories.
Oh yeah. Remember that garlic breath I mentioned? I went somewhere after that and couldn't find any mints. I did happen to have an A&W candy though. Didn't really want to waste the calories on it, but I also didn't want to scare anyone away with my hideous breath so I sucked it up and ate it. 25 calories.
Started getting hungry towards the end of the night. Instead of having ice cream I went the more nutritional route.
2 slices of whole wheat bread and one "cheddar" baby bel cheese. (Which tastes absolutely nothing like cheddar, by the way, if you wondered.)
1200 calories for the day.
1) I ate 1200 calories today and the only thing that didn't do me any nutritional favors was the hard candy. 25 calories out of 1200. So instead of 80/20 it was more like 98/2. Some people might not consider salami or salad dressing "nutritional" but I actually think fat in moderation is important so I'm counting it as healthy and balanced. Overall. Today gets a 9 out of 10! Not perfect, but pretty dang close.
2) I did indeed keep to my exercise promise. Hence the sweaty grossness. I played "Just Dance" for 45 minutes. Which is how long it took my heart rate monitor to guesstimate I had burned 200 calories. I'm pooped!
3) I haven't researched strength training yet, but my plan is to do it tomorrow!
Okay, gotta hit the hay. :)
