It was a rough day at work. I worked late, which is something I never do, and I was in a less-than-lovely mood when I got home. Luckily, it was leftover night. The cleaning lady had come earlier in the day, and my daffodils were finally blooming. I guess the day wasn’t a total wash. The eats were pretty good too.
Snack 1: pre-workout Reduced-Fat Triscuits (1/2 serving, I’m out of rice cakes)
Breakfast: 3/4 cup black beans, bell pepper, onion, salsa, and 1 egg (will decrease this to 1/2 cup beans)
Snack: MRM 100% natural whey protein + celery sticks
Lunch: veggie bowl (looks ugly, but it was good – come back for the recipe later this week) + 1 serving Triscuits
Snack: 1/3 cup blueberries + fat-free, black cherry Chobani (oh my goodness, that was delicious!)
Dinner: boring side salad + leftover veggie chili from Monday
Snack: There was no after-dinner snack (except decaf tea)!
I think the extra protein and fiber helped keep nighttime cravings away last night. Let’s hope it continues. I followed the LiveFit diet program fairly closely, so hopefully I can keep it up. The calories for yesterday were just a wee bit low, but I had a wee bit more Monday. It all evened out okay. Total Calories = 1360, Protein = 98g
