Written on Monday....
I was determined a couple days of wandering from my eating plan was not going to derail me forever, so I was right back on the wagon this morning. The breakfast scheduled for today was oatmeal with chocolate protein powder and even though I almost never use (and never really LIKE to use) protein powder, I put some in. The only chocolate kind I could find in Will's collection that didn't smell like barf was casein...that's a protein, right?
Breakfast also called for 1 cup of milk (which I saw AFTER I had already cooked my oatmeal) and a whole banana, so I saved half of my allotted banana and my cup of milk for a snack later. I find that I really don't need massive breakfasts or even morning snacks all that often but I DO need lots of snacks in the afternoon.
Today was the day of coming home and then leaving again over and over and over. I drove Emily to school because it was cold, then came back for a bit. Went to Bodypump, (which I couldn't have wanted to do less...but I felt good during and after) then came home for a bit. While I was home I made up and ate my lunch salad:
|Arugula, canned salmon, canellini beans, olives, tomato and balsamic vinegar|
then Charlotte and I went to hang with my family for a bit while they ate lunch at Common Market. I am miffed at Common Market for not carrying sushi anymore (how could they????) but work and school schedules allowed for everyone to be there so I joined the party. I didn't eat lunch there though, because I'm trying to stick exactly to my eating plan for at least a couple days before cheating at all.
I was supposed to have 8oz lowfat milk too, so I picked up one of those single-serving Organic Valley boxes of milk for kids out of desperation and that was my morning snack. I was expecting to hate it, since I can't STAND boxed or canned milk, but it was actually pretty tasty.
After our afternoon activities we headed home for another brief interlude, but right before we got there I noticed this in the back seat:
so I just went straight to Emily's school 20 minutes early and waited in the car with the snoozer.
We came home once again and I had a snack,
and took Emily to gymnastics. Came home and had another snack,
|These were supposed to be sesame seeds but I couldn't find the ones I had bought so I subbed sunflower|
and picked her up from gymnastics. We were then able to come home for the FINAL time (phew), and have some dinner.
|Steamed broccoli with lemon, (germinated) brown rice, 4 oz flank steak|
|Blueberries and strawberries with greek yogurt and nutmeg|
