So, I went to the grocery with Hunter this weekend and spent all of our money on easy and healthy snacks and oh, boy! did it work out yesterday. Total caloric intake of 1285 (thanks SparkPeople for the counting tools) and no deprivation or hunger at all. And yes, that is including my mid-afternoon latte and after-dinner cookies.
I’m not trying to lose weight or be incredibly healthy or anything honorable like that, I just really have to focus on my studies and if I eat more fruits and veggies I do better. My brain works super fast but can carry a distraction for miles, so I have to keep it focused. Generally, that involves munching on skittles and pretzels for my entire study period, but I can’t do that for 12 hours a day or I’ll be the size of a blimp! So, here’ the run-down.
Breakfast: the most important meal of the day because (a) it is and (b) it’ s the only time of day when I see H. So, it has to be quick and easy but also filling for a full day of studying.
Special K and skim milk
Two sausage links
1/2 cup of sliced strawberries
spinach salad [even though I hate salad!] with leftover roasted pork loin, half a tomato, and light balsamic dressing
100 calorie cheese nips
yogurt or, if I have time, a skim latte of some sort before my early class today!
Special K bar with blueberries! (my favorite!!!)
Healthy Choice while listening to the most boring lectures of all times (business associations oh my gosh…)
Low fat Laughing Cow Cheese
Minute Maid Light Lemonade
100 calorie Right Bites fudge stripe cookies
Seriously, it was not so bad except for the salad (yuck) and the business associations (double yuck).
