My first day without a meal plan. On the agenda is to clear out our fridge of food that we acquired over the week. I hate when leftovers go to waste.
Breakfast: Fat-free plain yogurt with blueberries and granola
I certainly missed plain yogurt. Sorry I've skipped you so many days my dear friend yogurt! The blueberries and granola were a fantastic addition to the yogurt. This would probably make a better snack than breakfast because I was pretty hungry shortly after breakfast. Mental note to keep yogurt as a snack instead of a breakfast.
Snack 1: 1 cheese stick.
Pathetic, I know, but that's what I packed.
Lunch: pulled chicken sandwich with onions and green peppers on a whole wheat roll- just like yesterday
Today's lunch was just as good as yesterdays, and just like yesterday, someone again asked me where I bought my sandwich. And, just like yesterday, I didn't have a camera to take a picture. Sorry I've failed you.
Snack 2: 1 huge, unhealthy cookie.
I couldn't help it. I was in the mall after work and passed the cookie stand. I gave in to my cookie cravings and purchased $3 of unhealthiness. I almost felt bad with each bite, but it was so good. I don't even want to look up how many calories it was because I'm positive it's a number larger than I could ever imagine.
After my ridiculous snack, I went to the gym to a zumba class. According to my fitbit, I walked 17,077 steps today!!!! That puts my old record of 15,000 steps to shame! I also burned 2,410 calories, which I think makes up for the cookie, but probably not.
When I got back from the gym, I was famished and ate another cheese stick before dinner.
For dinner we cooked up a ton of the leftovers we had in the house: green pepper, scallions, onions, snap peas and spinach. We sauteed the veggies and served them with whole wheat pasta. I topped mine with mozzarella cheese, and MJ topped his with the Jack Daniels chicken. We were both really happy with our meal.
Dessert - because I make the rules now!
I firmly believe that dessert should be a regular part of the daily meal plan! Tonight for dessert, MJ and I split a VitaMuffin Top. I would have had my own if I didn't scarf down a deliciously horrible cookie earlier today!
