After today’s workout, I came home to protein pancakes. I left out the protein powder, as I need to be careful with calorie intake this week with the lessening workouts. I usually burn 600 calories or more on hard workout days, and today was only 300. Need to account for that!
Got right to work and very busy. I certainly can’t complain about lack of work this week! I had a fun lunch combo. I’ve been all about pumpkin lately, so I had it with lunch:
Oikos vanilla yogurt with pumpkin, Grapenuts (just for you Steve!) and Craisins. This bowl had a wonderful texture to it and great flavor contrasts. Yum!
John brought me a latte in the afternoon with a secret ingredient:
Creme de menthe! With his homemade chocolate sauce on top. I love my hubby. I continued the chocolate theme with an Attune bar:
(Note the laziest cat in the world sleeping in the background). I love the Attunes because they are yummy, for one, and portion controlled. 90 calories in most of the bars. That’s a little easier for me than portioning out dark chocolate chips.
Pink item of the day:
It’s that time of year when I start drinking several cups of tea in a day.
Dinner was a ground turkey burger and one of those Steamer bags of veggies. I really love pan sauteed or roasted veggies because of the carmelization that gives them flavor, but these were pretty good. Lightly sauced with cheese (always a good thing).
A-1 sauce for dippin’!
Just taking care of some blog business here. I like to give reviews of products on my site, whether I purchase the product (which is usually the case) or if a company happens to provide me with a sample. I also always try to be very clear when it was a sample provided by a company. That doesn’t always mean the review is going to be positive. I feel that I am honest about all things in my weight loss and fitness, including the times I struggle or fall on my face. I feel the same way about being honest in how I perceive the things that I try. I am not going to say something is great if it isn’t to me. That doesn’t mean others won’t love it. I am just giving my opinion. I certainly am not in any way trying to undermine a company if I don’t like something. I would never be downright mean or bashing about something. It just means it wasn’t right for me and I explain why. I recently received an unpleasant email from a company whose product I was less than favorable on. I really don’t feel that I need to apologize for that. I know that the readers of this blog appreciate me as I am and how I present myself and expect nothing but the truth from me. ‘Nuff said.
Bagel day tomorrow!!
