Did everyone have a fun Friday? I slept through most of mine, hence the Saturday recap post.
I woke up a little bit late(r than desired) yesterday so I headed to straight to the gym. CT10k 1.3 called for 10 sets of 2 minutes running, 3 minutes walking. 50 minutes and 3.9 miles. My workout was great, but I cut the time a little too close. I had to literally jog – ugg boots, purse, push-up bra and all – part of the way back to school to make it to class on time!
I’m glad I made it, we had a great guest lecturer; a local RD who is certified as a Diabetes Educator. Once you’ve been an RD for couple of years there are all sorts of specialty certifications you can pursue. I think one in weight loss counseling could be fun.
When the guest lecturer was gone, I managed to eat breakfast during some student presentations. Leftovers for the win.
Soursop (aka guanabana) is my favorite fruit; it is too exciting that my Wegman’s recently expanded its Goya line. A guy friend in class joked that I’ve been a Goya groupie lately, (this was only my 2nd item but I think they are memorable because they’re a little outside the norm for class snacking) but it’s the closest thing to what I grew up with.
I stayed at school for a bit to work after class to work in the Dietetics computer lab. I have to complete a three-day diet analysis as part of my portfolio and I needed to use a program that is only available on the computers at school. I think maybe my eats during Vegan Month are a little too obscure for the program though; I had to make my best guesses at product substitutes and the program told me that my average intake for the last three days was 978 kcal/day. I don’t think so!
For lunch, I opened up this So Delicious Greek Style Plain Yogurt.
No. Just no. I knew it was a gamble when I bought it but I took the risk because I’ve adored everything else I’ve tried from So Delicious. Sadly the yogurt was exactly as I’d feared – straight up chemical. The texture wasn’t terrible but the taste was like licking a counter in chem lab.
Instead I ate the two plucots that were supposed to top my yogurt out of hand.
I almost shed a tear of happiness at the taste of these. They were still a little bit too sour, but that means that plucot season is right around the corner.
For the rest of lunch I
paced frantically waited patiently for my oven timer to ring.
I’m not gonna lie and say that my stomach didn’t hurt, but I’m also not gonna lie and say it wasn’t totally worth it.
But since I ate ~700 calories worth of cookies I did keep dinner on the lighter side. Or I was going to anyway. The plan was soup, but apparently my hour-long nap – at noon, on the floor – wasn’t doing it because I fell into bed at 8:30 last night! Yay catch-up sleep.
This morning Adam and I headed straight out on errands. Probably not my best idea to skip breakfast when I slept through dinner, but I was a woman on a mission. I got so hungry that I convinced myself that spending $3 on a Synergy Grape Chia Kombucha wasn’t a waste of money.
But it really wasn’t a waste of money because it was delicious! I loved chewing through it and the flavor reminded me of a grape Laffy Taffy. Adam and I shared it and even he was a fan by the end.
Our other share wasn’t quite as healthy.
Five Guys fries make my soul sing. Seriously. I’ve made a bigger effort this past week to eat less crap, but we’re doing a different challenge in March that necessitates shoveling in FGF now.
Lunch was healthy and tasty.
I love storing leftovers in tupperware because when you are combining you can shake things together to get a really good mix. This time I shook barley, roasted broccoli, roasted butternut squash, and Wegman’s Thai Peanut Sauce. Topped with a few cocktail peanuts.
Delicious. We’ve been trying new things from the Co-op’s bulk bins lately and it’s been fun branching out.
I made myself a really delicious dinner.
But I only got to eat two bites. All of the sudden, Webster – in the worst show of behavior I’ve ever seen from him – shoved his entire face into my bowl! Hello, mess; goodbye, dinner.
[Updated Sunday Morning To Add]
The boys came over to play poker, he got even more crazy, and I got so irritated I ended up just going to bed. So now I need to find a nice big breakfast.
Question of the day, from my post title – Name that movie!
