For starters, here is the finished roasted broccoli from last night’s dinner:
This morning I started out my day with a little BREAKFAST!
Cut up 3 strawberries & topped them with fat free plain Greek yogurt.
Notice the SUGAR content of this OIKO’s Plain Greek Yogurt! Only 6 grams in the whole container vs. the others I had bought which had about 15 grams! — Therefore, it needed a bit of sweetening for taste, so I whipped out my Agave Nectar and drizzled about 1 tsp. or less onto the yogurt. It worked wonders & tasted awesome!
I ran a few errands this morning & one of them included GNC. I bought three products…
L-Carnitine is taken with meals & helps to raise metabolism plus regulate sugar levels
Chromium Polynicotinate is taken at meals also & is supposed to help regulate blood sugar levels.
Nature’s Brand Colon Pure: Purified Psyllium Husk – taken between meals & helps to cleanse the colon on a daily basis. A friend of mine takes this & I also read about what a great product it is in the book “You Are What You Eat” so I decided to give it a try!
After errands came lunch…
Cajun Turkey on Multi-wheat bread (from IGA) that I toasted & topped with LC Light Swiss Cheese and Mustard. Added some Blackberries to sweeten things up!
That wasn’t enough. I needed more sweetness…
Light n Fit Strawberry Yogurt with more Blackberries & a few Strawberries
This afternoon after I washed my grandma’s windows I found myself munching on these not-so-healthy sweet chocolates…
I think I had about 3 handfuls (about 15 eggs). OOPS!
I said I was going to try harder. I don’t think that qualifies as trying harder! Sheesh!
They were just so good, it was hard to quit munching.
Followed by the Cadbury eggs was a much needed Run/Walk in the lovely afternoon weather!
Remember that 2nd hill I told you I would tackle on a different day? Well, today was the day! I tackled it….after tackling the first one again. Let’s just say, I HIKED up them both (definitely didn’t tempt to run up them)…pumping my arms the whole time! That, my friends, was one heck-of-a-hill! WOAH.
Post run/walk came cleaning up for work, then heading to the Y to Personal Train a new individual & then do some gym deep-cleaning!
When I got home I started preparing my DINNER…
Sweet Potato slices! YUM!
Small Salad with Broccoli Slaw, Tomaters, Onions, a bit of Grilled Chicken, crushed Flax Seeds & a little LF Gorgonzola cheese
Dressing = Light Balsamic Vinaigrette
The entire meal tasted great & hit the spot.
Dessert tonight was SF Chocolate Pudding cup with a bit of FF Cool Whip on top! Figured I better keep it as light as possible considering I’d already had my fair share of Cadbury Eggs today. Ugh.
I shall try to do better tomorrow. Promise.
Well, I hope you all had a SUPER Tuesday & were able to get in a workout, or an ‘outdoor activity’ of some sort.
The routine PINTEREST MI awaits you…
I like this one!
…and never say “I can’t!”
