Breakfast: Egg Sandwich (3 egg whites, 1 slice part-skim mozzarella on a whole wheat English muffin); 1/2 grapefruit
For some reason I just hated this meal. I know I've liked it in the past but the eggs came out horribly and there were far too many of them for my little English muffin. And we all know how much I love grapefruit. Epic fail.
Snack 1: 1 oz raw, unsalted cashews
Fail again. If you peeked ahead, you'll see that the editors have me eating cashews the same day as they have me eating cashew butter. I'm cashewed out and say no way.
Lunch: 1 whole-wheat wrap with 2 tbsp unsalted natural cashew butter and 1 small sliced banana, 3/4 cup low-fat plain yogurt with 1/2 cup blueberries
I was going to just replace the cashew butter with almond butter since I'm such a huge fan of almond butter now, but I decided to be brave and try it out. The first lick was horrible. I didn't like the taste or the aftertaste. I went ahead and put it on the wrap and it was actually a good meal. I was shocked because this "lunch" sounds more like a breakfast or a snack. I ended up eating my yogurt and blueberries hours later because the lunch was actually a pretty filling lunch.
Snack 2: 3/4 cup low-fat greek yogurt, 1 tbsp cocoa powder, 1 cup sliced strawberries
Alright what's the deal? Two cashew meals in one day and two yogurt meals in one day? Despite the fact that chocolate and strawberries sound delicious, I eat a hardboiled egg with 2 RyKrisp crackers. Sue me.
Dinner: 5 oz baked salmon, 10 spears steamed asparagus, 1 medium baked sweet potato.
MJ made dinner! This is such a user friendly meal I couldn't resist putting him in charge. He baked everything in the oven. When it was done we decided to whip up some orange glaze (from Day 11) and it was delicious! And then MJ did dinner. He's definitely a keeper.
I forgot to say that my parents sent me chocolate for Valentines Day. Yesterday I brought them over to a friend's place and we ate some of them. I had three, which adds up to 140 calories. Totally worth it. Happy Valentine's Day!
Fitbit Stats: I didn't do that well in fitbit stats today because I was being so productive at work. Doesn't it suck that the more productive you are mentally the less you are able to be "productive" physically? I ended up doing a workout video on demand because I had practically no steps in my day. My end totals were 2170 Calories burned, 8641 steps taken (4.26 miles) and 94% sleep efficiency. The jury is still out on whether that's legit.
