* Half an Xe Energy Drink on my way to the Y
* Cookies-n-Cream Protein Shake during & after intense UPPER BODY and AB workout with a little ARC Trainer involved, also!
Sweet Potato (with NO HFCS Ketchup) & Veggie Pizza
Veggie Pizza consisted of: Whole Wheat Tortilla folded in half & sprayed with Olive Oil, then topped with Pizza Sauce (the YUMMY kind I can only find at BUY-LOW in Jasper).
Veggies = Broccoli, onion, red pepper
at the end I added a bit of Shredded cheese…just a bit.
I did a little baby-sitting today for a friend while she went to the dentist, & her little girl arrived just in time for lunch. Hah! She wanted NOTHING to do with Veggie Pizza or Sweet Tater. I made her try the Sweet Tater, and her response – ‘that tastes yucky! I don’t like anything orange!’ …so much for that idea. So I opted for a bit more of a ‘kid friendly’ meal for her…
Turkey Sandwich with American Cheese (take note…the cheese is ORANGE & she LOVED it! lol) made on 35 calorie wheat bread (also note the ‘circle’-ish appearance of the bread. She insisted I cut it into a circle because she refused to eat the crust…my favorite part! haha)
Low Fat Raspberry Yogurt, which she also LOVED.
Kids are just too funny. The whole lunch we talked about what food she liked, or more like DOESN’T like. Hardly any veggies. Oh, she’ll eat peas though! Cha-ching!…and said she’d never touch green beans! I LOL-ed on that one. Said she likes most fruit (I think most kiddos do). And knew what beef jerky was (or at least what a bag of it looks it) because I had a package of it laying out on the table & she commented on it. Pretty smart for a 4 year old! It was great day in the baby-sitting world.
Yet, made me realize how far down the road kids are in my future. NO WHERE NEAR READY for that adventure yet! NO WAY!
* XOCAI Healthy Chocolate NUGGET
Snack at work included…
Carrots (more than 4 shown…more like 10!) with FF Ranch Dip
Made a Shakeology to take for dinner at the Y while working, but I was too cold at work, which made Shakeology not sound too appetizing. I had goose-bumbs & chills I was so cold. Need to dress warmer next time. Note to self…wear pants to work, not shorts!
When I got home @ 9:30ish, I was kinda hungry because the carrots had worn off…imagine that! Shakeology still didn’t sound appealing because I was STILL COLD. Decided to save my shake for lunch on the road tomorrow.
Dinner ended up being late & consisted of…
Salad with broccoli slaw, red pepper, onion, and LF Parmesan
topped with FF Italian dressing
Special K…couldn’t resist the chocolate chips tonight. It’s been a long day. (I know, I know…no excuse.)
And I still have this to look forward to before bed…
Psyllium Husk …it isn’t as bad as it looks or sounds. Promise. The first dose is the worst. Grows on you from there!
Workouts today consisted of…
* Morning ARC Trainer – 20 minute warm up to get the body moving
* Morning Upper Body & AB workout – 1 hour
* Evening BodyPUMP class – taught it! and taped it for critiquing by Les Mills
