I had no idea what day it was today, don’t you hate it when that happens? John played poker last night. He normally plays on Wednesdays. So, I thought it was Thursday when I got up and went to the gym. Bummer that it was only Tuesday LOL.
It was kind of one of those wacky spring weather days, too. It was cold when I got up for the gym and the sun tried to peek out at times, but seemed somewhat unsuccesful. We had some sleet at times, too. Looks like no biking tomorrow for bagels:
No S word, please.
I tried a different protein shake today. I blended a kiwi with almond milk, protein powder and cinnamon. Do not do this. At first, the shake was pretty good. As per usual, I had half before my workout. When I tried to drink the rest after the workout – it had turned horribly bitter while sitting. Like chewing on orange pith. Yuck!! I couldn’t finish it.
I also played around with breakfast. I took a serving of oats and ground them up, then added 1 tablespoon of flax meal, 1/4 cup liquid egg whites, 15 grams of protein powder, cinnamon and 1 teaspoon of honey. This made a very thick batter, which I pressed into a fry pan.
Looks like a pancake, but I could pick it up like a cookie. It actually had the chewy texture of an oatmeal cookie, and I think of this more like a cookie than anything else. Dense and chewy. It would be good with raisins, but it is pretty dense. Maybe adding some baking powder would help or baking it. Or maybe not grinding the oats. I need to do some playing.
Work dragged on and on today. Some of my least favorite doctors working today. That always makes the time go slow.
I was happy to break for lunch. (That breakfast was dense enough to last until lunch, so yay on that). I made up some peanut flour with cinnamon, salt and a few grams of honey. Plus a coconut biscuit.
I was going to spread the PB on either the pear or the biscuit, but then I ended up eating everything separate. For some reason, at this point I was thinking it was Wednesday, but nope, still Tuesday. Ugh?
I have been doing well with my no snacking. I had a few Nut Thins today, but that is it. I had a day on Saturday where I really wanted to snack, but managed to control it. I do wish the scale would be nice about that, but I can’t focus on that at all. It’s not that important in the scheme of my fitness endeavors.
However, I was ready for the latte that John made up for me.
Hooray for coffee!
John made a comment that he heard me grouching at the doctors today LOL. Good thing *they* can’t hear me!
I ended up having almost the same main dish for dinner tonight as last night. We had chicken thighs and I cooked one up and topped it with the leftover tomato topping from yesterday.
This is an actual serving of strawberries, too. I never weigh out my fruit or veggies, but I was curious. (I do weigh everything else). Dole has 147 grams of berries as a serving, which is 8 medium berries or a cup of berries. I don’t know exactly what a medium berry is since most berries are the size of a Smart Car anymore. So, I weighed them out. I tend to eat 1 or 2 more berries than this, but pretty close. I guess these must have been medium size berries because I think there were 7 or 8.
Tonight I am out for coffee and mother/daughter time!
Question: Do you weigh or measure foods?
