Happy Saturday! I hope you’re all enjoying your weekend. Here’s a recap of Friday and Saturday’s food and fitness.
When I woke up, I thought to myself that it had been far too many days since I had had oat bran! So I made a big bowl of Banana Bread Oat Bran, along with 1/2 cup of egg whites + 1 whole egg, scrambled.
I stayed in all morning, doing things around the house and playing with baby. Pretty low-key.
My oat bran kept me quite full for a long time. I didn’t have lunch until about 12:30. (Keep in mind I get up around 6:00!) We were all out of lunchmeat and most everything else so I made an almond butter and jelly sandwich on a whole wheat sandwich thin. Pretty delicious for a “we’re all out of everything” lunch!!
I also made a protein shake to take with me over to my dad’s house to visit.
In the mix:
- 1-1/2 cups of unsweetened soymilk
- 1-1/2 tbs of cocoa powder
- 3 tbs of vegetable protein powder
- 2 packets of Stevia
I was very full again after my sandwich and shake. I think I actually did it right today – never let myself get really hungry!
I stopped in at my dad’s for a few minutes. He was working from home for the day and about to jump on a conference call. So I left my car parked at his house and took baby for a walk downtown. We walked about 2 miles – and, of course, I stopped in a Dunkin Donuts for a decaf coffee along the way. It was chilly out!!
When I got home, I had a small snack to tide me over until dinner.
Dinner was quick, easy, and yummy – Spaghetti Squash “Spaghetti” with Ground Turkey Meat Sauce.
Since I went for a good long walk earlier in the day, I skipped out on any additional exercise and finished my night with a nice cold beer instead! 🙂
Baby did not sleep well at all last night, so I totally felt like a zombie this morning. I couldn’t even remember what day it was when I got up!!
We had made plans to take my little bro and sis (they’re 16 and 12) to breakfast later in the morning, but I, of course, had to eat a pre-breakfast when I got up at 6:30!
We ended up having to wait for a table at the little diner we went to. We probably got our food around 10:15 or 10:30. Good thing I had pre-breakfast! Otherwise I would have been a total cranky pants by then! I had a bowl of oatmeal and some scrambled Egg Beaters. I had my camera in the diaper bag, but I ended up holding baby while I was eating. Taking a picture was nearly impossible! I had my hands full just trying to keep her hands out of my food! 🙂
Back at the house, I had lunch around 1. Lunch was a repeat of yesterday: almond butter and jelly sandwich with a protein shake.
Just as delicious as yesterday!!
I decided to go grocery shopping solo this afternoon. I usually drive about 30 minutes to a store that I like better than the one that’s 15 minutes away. It’s cheaper, too! But today, I was all about convenience. I sucked it up and went to the one that’s 15 minutes away. Probably spent a few extra bucks, but saved myself at least an hour.
For my afternoon snack, I had a TJ’s Boysenberry Fruit Strip.
It was like an all-natural Fruit Rollup! Mmmm! I love that it doesn’t have any added sugar. It doesn’t need it. The fruit is sweet enough!
For dinner I baked some lemon pepper haddock and roasted some asparagus (lightly coated with olive oil) in the oven. Deeee-lish! I love how the asparagus gets all crunchy at the top!!
I love roasting vegetables in the oven. It really brings out the flavor! What’s your favorite way to prepare veggies?
After baby went to bed, I changed and headed to the basement for Biggest Loser Power Sculpt. I really had to talk myself into doing this tonight. I’m sooo exhausted. But I did it. Yay me!
Once I emerged from the basement, I split a kiwi with the hubby.
I may or may not have had a bowl of Fiber One, too. 😉
I can’t believe tomorrow is Sunday already! I’m looking forward to a full day of relaxation (with some exercise thrown in there, of course). 😀
