Breakfast #1: Toast!
Whooohoo! Back to regular fitness since my workout injury from last week. I had a piece of Sarah Lee's 45 calorie wheat bread with a smear of super shiny almond butter on it before heading out for an early boot camp session.
When you have to get up for a 5 a.m. boot camp class, sometimes you get worried you won't wake up on time (even with the alarm). Well apparently Baby & Boscoe were concerned as well, because they started my wake up call about 30 minutes before I needed to be up.
Don't be fooled by the looks of innocence. They will meow their faces off and jump on you when they want you to get up.
Breakfast #2: Spinach Omelet & Shake
I know that my ability to make the world's most beautiful omelet is intimidating, but I'm a normal person, I swear. Ok, totally kidding there. My spinach omelets always look like a hot mess, but they are delicious & nutritious ;) I used a whole egg and an egg white, along with a cup of cooked down fresh spinach.
I also had a coffee to go & a peanut butter, banana protein shake containing the following: half scoop vanilla protein powder, 1 frozen banana, 1 cup almond milk and 1 tbsp of powdered peanut butter.
Have you guys tried the powdered peanut butter? It's only 45 calories for 2 tbsp, so that's my only reason for using it. You can add it to recipes or just add water and make a weird PB like paste. If you are into it, here's where I buy it.
A.M. Snack: Apple & Nuts
I got an energy pick me up from these yums to hold me over until lunch. Actually, scratch that. I cut the apple and it must have been near an onion in my kitchen, because it tasted of onion. Blech. In the trash it went. So I had the almonds, only.
Um, I also got some fake energy from the new Starbucks energy drinks. They call them Refreshers and the can is only 60 calories and supposedly has a bunch of natural stuff in it. Today I had the strawberry lemonade flavor & it was lovely (FYI-I found them at CVS & Walgreens on sale).
This is obviously me before the energy drink, because my hair looks cray cray and my eyes are so tired. I tried to take an after picture, but it's super blurry because of all my "energy."
Lunch: Bento Box!
Today's bento box lunch was killer. I made some lettuce wraps in an attempt to decrease my carb intake. My wraps have dijon mustard, a slice of turkey, a slice of roast beef and a piece of sharp cheddar all wrapped up in some butter lettuce. I had some leftover roasted broccoli and some Rainier cherries on the side.
P.M. Snack: Yo
Since I always call frozen yogurt, "fro yo," I thought I'd try calling yogurt "yo." I'm not sure it works as well. Ok, so I had this new 100 calorie Greek yogurt & it was pretty bangin'.
Dinner: Veggie Panini & Fruit
I had some errands to run with my mom this evening, so I convinced her to go to Bahama Breeze with me :) I had the portabella veggie sandwich and some fruit with the most incredible mango sorbet on top. I also tried their skinny margarita and it wasn't half bad (not enough tequila, though).
Thanks for reading all about my food today! Have a great week!
