Before jumping into the food, I want to give a quick re-cap of yesterday’s workout. I really prefer the elliptical, but yesterday I did 45 minutes on the bike instead. My feet are really giving me fits, so I’m going to bike for a while to give them a break. Well, except today. I am about to go run the treadmill for 30 minutes before completing my leg workout. Let’s hope it goes well!
Now… onto the eats! First breakfast is half a pear. These pears are so small though that I may have to add some almonds or something. Second breakfast is the other half of the pear and a TBS of pb on an English muffin.
Delish! I’ve been having a snack before lunch, which is just a rice cake. Lame. Lunch is a bit more interesting. It’s chopped veggies over romaine topped with 2% shredded sharp cheddar cheese, 16 grams of roast sunflower seeds, and 2 TBS of TJ’s light champagne vinaigrette.
I’m not a big fan of having salads for lunch, but this one’s pretty good. Plus, I have extra motivation to have a salad every day for lunch this week. I’ll fill you in on that tomorrow.
My afternoon snack consists of sliced veggies and 4 TBS hummus. I know that’s a lot of hummus, but it’s so goooood.
Sadly, because I had snack ridiculously early, I splurged on some vending machine pretzels later in the day.
Last night I had TJ’s Latin Style Black Bean soup for dinner. I was running off for a jewelry party and needed something quick (and preferably easy). This may have been paired with a few spicy flax tortilla chips.
I had a glass of wine at the jewelry party. I really couldn’t stay long and was only trying to make an appearance, so I stuck to one. Plus, who wants to get all liquored up and buy an ugly piece of jewelry? Not this girl! Gotta tighten the belt for Black Friday shopping!
Cleo knows how hard it is to turn down a nice glass of wine.
