Stuffed (all meals 01/12/09)

I am so glad Monday is over! It wasn’t bad as far as Mondays go, but it’s always daunting to feel the whole work week ahead of me…Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely love my job and can’t imagine anything I’d rather be doing more but, after all, work’s work and I’m usually exhausted at the end of the day. I did get one bad piece of news today- the Spanish class I signed up for (Spanish conversation) got canceled because of low interest so now I have to find another place to take it 😦 This class was so good because it was right near my house and pretty cheap too! Oh well, I guess I’ll have to keep looking and find another place to take Spanish. But I better get on it soon because the spring semester is right around the corner.

It was so hard to get up this morning- I was NOT wanting to leave my warm comfy bed. It’s especially hard because Ryan gets to sleep in later than me, and I don’t want to leave our little cacoon alone! But work was calling, so I dragged myself out of bed and made a quick breakfast.

Breakfast:

For breakfast I made myself a quick yogurt mix. In the bowl you see: 1/2 cup non fat Greek yogurt (Fage 0%), 1/4 cup trail mix, some fresh blueberries, and half of a medium banana. I had such a hard time finishing this because I was getting really full, but I really wanted breakfast to hold me over for a while so I made myself do it. I was STUFFED by the time I was done!

Snack:

Around 11:30 I was still feeling full from breakfast but decided I should have a snack before hitting the gym so that I had the energy to really push myself. I kept it simple with a light string cheese (50 cals) and an apple:

Workout:

I thought I would have to miss my workout today because we were supposed to have a staff meeting, but the meeting was postponed and I got to go to the gym- yay! I signed up for my usual Monday spin class with my favorite instructor (the same one who teaches steps class) but got to the gym a bit early so decided to take advantage of the 15 minutes I had. I worked on my arms and did bicep curls (15 reps x 3) and tricep dips (15 reps x 3). Honestly tricep dips are my favorite tricep excercise- I feel the burn like crazy when I do them! Arm excercised were followed by a very kickass, very sweaty spin class that felt great. I finished it all with some ab excercised (crunches and other ab excercised I don’t know the official names of…). I felt good when I left the gym!

Lunch

Lunch was kind of weird today. I packed a lunch from home but after one bite I realized I REALLY didn’t want it. And if my taste buds don’t want it, I don’t want it. I swear my stomach does this weird thing where if something doesn’t taste good it pretends I’m full and I seriously can’t take another bite of it. So after taking one bite of my prepared lunch and realizing it wasn’t going to work I put it away and rummaged through my snack drawer to avoid getting takeout. I came up with the following pretty pathetic lunch: a 100 calorie pack of popcorn and 2 clementines. Yeah. Not so great on the health and balance and getting food groups in factor but I knew my body needed something after that workout and the lunch I packed was just NOT happening. You can see my full, uneaten bowl of Tupperware with a home packed lunch in the background of what ended up being my actual lunch.

Dinner:

Dinner ended up being much more succesful than lunch. It was a dinner of experiment that turned out well- don’t you love those? I tried my hand at making stuffed chicken breast for the first time ever and it turned out surprisingly well. I stuffed it with spinach and mushrooms that were sauteed with garlic, salt, and pepper prior to being stuffed. On the side we had a bunch of roast veggies- parsnips, bell pepper, onion, and zuccini. Here is my plate:

And here is what the chicken looked like cut open, kind of cool, huh?

I ended up eating ALL those veggies and half of the stuffed chicken breast. After I was finished I was quite stuffed 🙂 Ok, fine, I’m lame.

Dessert hasn’t been consumed yet but I’m feeling the need for citrus so I’m going for a grapefruit. Plus, I’m going to be a good girl and take my calcium chews:

Hope you had a good Monday! Goodnight!

That’s not fair Ryan! I always clarify how much of the food I actually ate so I’m not being misleading…
