My day started out with a THRIVE Shake followed by some Morning Energizers.
Thrive Shake with Unsweetened Almond Milk, Strawberries, Activia Yogurt
After Morning Energizers ended, a friend of mine met me at the Y for an outdoor powerwalk! It was a bit chilly, but felt nice to be out in the fresh air. I would say we got in a good 5 or so miles. When I got back to the Y, I was HUNGRY!
Early Lunch ~
Earth Balance PB + Agave Nectar on Sandwich Thin + Banana
I still felt hungry after eating this early lunch, but just kept my water bottle close by and sipped on it instead. The hunger never really went away…by 2 o’clock, I needed more food!
Second Lunch ~
Salad with Asiago + Parmesan Cheeses, White Onion, and Pepper
I opted to leave any nuts off the salad today, since I had already had a good size amount of PB on my sandwich.
This salad kept me content for a few hours, but then…hunger returned! I could not believe how hungry I was today! OMG!
Before BodyPUMP class this evening, I ended up searching through my gym bag and digging out a thinkThin bar to munch on.
Thank Goodness for thinkThin Brownie Crunch bars!!
BodyPUMP was a great strength session, as always on Mondays! We did release #80. It has some definite tough tracks involved…especially shoulders. I had to stick around after class to weigh-in anyone who came in for the Y Weight Loss Challenge, so I opted to do a few more strength exercises in the gym while I waited on individuals to come in and get weighed. Total calorie burn in my Monday Evening Strength Session was about 650 ~ not bad for STRENGTH TRAINING! I am glad it was on the high side, being that I felt like I wanted to eat everything in sight today!
Dinner this evening (after arriving home at about 8:30 — I know, I know, that is quite late for dinner-time) ~
Wheat Wrap with Grilled Chicken, BBQ (Chipotle), Red Onion, Tomatoes, Greens, and Parmesan Cheese
Fresh Kiwi + Blueberries (YUM!!!)
I had a sweet tooth this evening – it does not surprise me, given the level of my hunger the ENTIRE day! I gave in and enjoyed a serving of Dark Chocolate Covered Pretzel Thins ~ delicious.
Dark Chocolate Covered Pretzel Crisps ~ Serving size has 130 calories and 5 grams of Fat. Not bad for how AWESOME they taste.
I am hoping my hunger levels out tomorrow! Cannot consume this much food on Tuesday. I just try to listen to my body when it comes to eating…and today, it just kept telling me it was hungry. My tummy was literally growling, so I know it was not just in my head.
I am hoping your Monday was filled with healthy eating habits and a tough, sweaty workout! Keep up the AWESOME-ness as we head into Tuesday.
Until next time ~
