My appetite was out of control Monday. I just did not feel satisfied after anything I ate. I hate that feeling, because I knew I wasn't really hungry, but I ate anyway. And, I didn't exactly make the healthiest choices. Oh well, back to clean eating yesterday and today. Today I woke up and had a bowl of Barbara's Bakery Shredded Wheat with skim milk. I did Stephanie Vitarino's Six-Round Slimdown. It wasn't really as challenging as I had hoped. I definitely needed to up the weights. She was using 5-pound dumbells, and that just wasn't enough weight for me.
After my shower, I ate a slice of Ezekiel Sesame bread with almond butter. When I got to work I sliced up a pair and had a two very thick slices of provolone. For lunch today, I had a bowl of quinoa with french green lentils, steamed brussels sprouts, cilantro, and fresh lime juice. Random, I know. I have some strange concoctions, but they are always delicious! After lunch I had a mango, some blueberries, and strawberries, and another honkin' slice of provolone cheese. My tummy is rumbling a little bit from all that dairy - oh well, I LOVE IT!
Dinner tonight will be a turkey burger on the grill with a chipotle chile in adobo minced into the meat. I will enjoy that on a toasted Ezekiel english muffin with a few pieces of romaine lettuce, some sweet corn, and a few kale chips. For dessert tonight, I am thinking of having a grilled banana with dark chocolate. I was going to have cheese on my turkey burger, but I think I have met my dairy quota for the day! Plus, I have some greek yogurt in the fridge that I know I won't be able to stay out of after dinner tonight.
Thanks for reading, and I am going to try to stay up to date on my posts. It keeps me accountable. I ate terribly over the weekend. I find that if I write down what I eat, even if no one is reading this blog, it helps me with my clean eating initiative.
Welcome to my blog!
I have always loved to bake - mostly because I can follow instructions and recipes, and I have had good luck with my turnout. But, more recently, I have learned the joy of cooking. I love trying out new recipes, and I like to play with recipes to accommodate my finicky tastes.
I hope you enjoy my blog!
