So hence the late breakfast post and the crappy photography. My breakfast photos are never good because I'm always in a rush to eat!
Got up at 4:50 this morning to find a dead roach in the powder bath. Terminix came yesterday - I guess it worked!
Had a small slice of husband's homemade bread (.6 oz) and 7 grams of Trader Joe's Peanut Butter (which I still hate!!)
Workout was great this morning. Hard 60-minute spinning class. My heart rate was going nuts - it hit 170-180 a few times, which usually only happens if I'm giving it 100% full out sprint effort, so I think I was picking up the wacked out guy beside me's signal. But I did work hard myself, so I'm guessing about 450 calories total, which is usually what I burn at that level of work. Those of you who haven't tried spinning classes - try one! They're so fun if you find an instructor that you like, and it's a GREAT workout.
I needed a big breakfast today because I'm not having lunch until 1pm and I spent all of spinning debating what to have!! I settled on 2 Kashi waffles (blueberry), a cup of coffee, and a smoothie. Note to self: my blender does NOT like frozen mango!! The smoothie turned out really thick and frozen (I like it thick yet liquidy) so I had to wait for it to melt some. I can put the blueberries in straight from the freezer, but I think the mango should have been defrosted in the microwave for a minute first. But once they melted, it was very yummy!!
(Sorry for poor photography)
- 1 c frozen mango
- 1/2 c frozen blueberries
- 4 oz plain yogurt
- 6 oz skim milk
- 1 tbsp ground flax
Breakfast calories: ~525
I'm wearing jeans today at work and my favorite J Crew buttondown. Good outfits sure do improve the mood!
Going out to lunch AND dinner today. Lunch at a sandwich shop (still undecided on which one to get). They have a apple, brie and walnut sandwich, but I know with dinner out and a big weekend I should stick to the hummus and veggie. Maybe I'll settle for something inbetween.
See you at lunch!
