Thanks all for your likes, comments, and views on my last entry! Glad to see there are many others who find body image to be an important topic to discuss.
I also spent most of Wednesday messing around with my blog layout. I like this one much better, because it allows a more visual picture of all my recent posts, and not just the featured ones. Let me know what you think!
Earlier this week, I decided to chronicle what I ate for a day. Though I’ve used calorie counting apps before, doing this really made me realize how much I snack! Literally all my meals had a snack in between. I’d like to think I at least kept them healthy though :) It’s hard not to snack at work these days, since the CA Legislature is on recess and my bosses (they are lobbyists) are off taking their vacations. Boredom definitely –> snacking, in my case! Regardless, I’d say this was a pretty typical food day for me.
Breakfast: Yoplait Strawberry Greek Yogurt with Granola (only 230 calories, and the granola makes it super filling!)
Snack: Small handful of macadamia nuts and almonds
We’ve obviously made a dent in this bucket over the last month, ha.
Before I ate lunch, I worked out for a little bit. I ran the stairs only ONCE (8 floors/16 flights) and that was enough to make my legs scream…I’m really out of shape from not running. (Thanks, broken hand) Followed it up with 20 minutes on a stationary bike and crunches.
And also….a photo shoot in the gym whose soul purpose was to see how gross and muscly I could make my legs look.
Mission accomplished, obviously.
Lunch: Black Bean Soup (I also continuously refill my mug of green tea throughout the day)
Snack: Oreo Cookie
Because these are the other snack options in our break room…(I’ve had enough Nature Valley granola bars to last me a lifetime!)
Dinner: Grilled Veggie Tacos, again inspired by Edible Perspective
Everything was grilled! Zucchini, Onions, Jalapeno, Grape Tomatoes, Yellow Bell Pepper and Avocado…. + a healthy squeeze of lime juice! I also had some fresh blueberries on the side. (I didn’t want them to go bad)
Dessert: IPA & Fries (haha)
After he got off work, T-Man and I stopped by Rubicon, a brewpub by my apartment for Pint Night. We both got IPA’s, and he got a Caesar Salad (with a side of balsamic vin mixed in, his fave!) + criss-cut fries…of which I stole many.
That was pretty much it. I also walked home from work and to/from Pint Night, which is about 1 mile total. Being forced to walk everywhere since T-Man works and I don’t ride my bike as often with my cast has definitely helped me feel a little more active in this period of inactivity!
Hope everyone has a great weekend. This weekend is Launch Festival in Sacramento, excited to see Chromeo for a second time as well as DJ Shadow and some other awesome acts! NOT TO MENTION the OLYMPICS start tonight! So unbelievably excited! I love watching gymnastics, swimming, diving, basketball, track and field…the options are endless!
What about you guys? What are your fave Summer Olympic sports??
