I had Kashi with skim milk for breakfast.
A piece of whole wheat toast with a half of an avocado on top for snack.
Fat Free tortilla with 4oz steak and some salsa for lunch - carrots on the side.
WaterWaterWaterWaterWaterWater - all the LIVE LONG day.
Afternoon snack will be a Fiber One bar and possibly an apple.
Dinner tonight...well - I think we will have the Stouffers Chicken Alfredo dinner that's been up in the freezer for a month. We started back to school today and I'm whooped.
Ever since I started making menus to aid me in my shopping, my menu plan is usually right on target, though the only closed options are lunch and dinner. Breakfast, morning tea and afternoon tea are always open because I like a little variety in my diet!
Breakfast today is 2 pieces of cinnamon toast (7 grams of butter on each slice for a little extra yummy) and a glass of OJ (250ml- 1 serve).
Morning tea might be an orange after I get back from the gym or it might be 7 teddy bear crackers and 20 grams of raisins (just about the same amount of calories, +/- 20).
Lunch, since I had leftover baked chicken (that DH hasn't managed to eat yet), is a baked chicken wholewheat tortilla with 25grams of cheddar cheese, lettuce out the wazoo and BBQ sauce.
Afternoon tea will probably be the other option that I didn't eat at morning tea. There's a piece of Christmas cake in the fridge calling my name too... might save that for dessert.
Dinner is 125grams roast/baked chooken with some potatoes, homegrown veg and garden picked salad (out of our garden). I might have a couple of the potato pieces- I
roasted potatoes. I found last night that 100 grams of baked chicken isn't a lot. 125 isn't going to be that much more.
Dessert might be the yoghurt in the fridge or it might be the Christmas cake that's been screaming "Mollie-- EAT ME!" for the last few days.
Since I've given up Diet Coke/all coke, I'll be drinking water (well, with berry flavoured B-vitamin sachets; it's the only way I can get through 9-15 glasses a day).
Then I'll be ready and rarin' to go on Wednesday.
It's going to be a big run tomorrow and Friday. I hope my iPod holds up; if it gets too jostled, it'll reset or freeze. In media res
of a timed run isn't the best time for that to happen. I might wrap it around the heartrate monitor on the treadmill and let it dangle for 1/2 hour.
