As usual, thanks for hosting Jenn!
Notice I didn't workout first? I did 7 miles on Sunday after leg work on Saturday. Monday was a much needed rest day.
Monday I was back at school and AR was back in town. I started the morning with a favorite of mine: egg white french toast. Served with coffee, banana, and strawberries.
I make this with one and a half slices of wheat bread, one whole egg, and one egg white. It is the perfect start to the week.
Snack during Law & Econ class: A Whole Foods 365 strawberry bar. I just picked these up on Sunday as something new to try. Verdict: so yummy and fruity tasting.
Yes, I morning snack. I know people say I should give this up, but I rarely skip it. Do you eat a morning snack or wait until lunch?
Lunch: Salad with cucumber, carrots, super greens, and sriracha salmon (leftover from the weekend). I also had a plain greek yogurt with a bit of strawberry granola.
|AR got me this cup... how cute is it?|
No Caffeine after noon: I LOVE decaf tea. I am trying to leave the caffeine to morning time. Afternoon/evening tea is becoming a ritual.
Dinner: It was meatless monday, so I stuck with our recent favorite of spaghetti squash. I used a recipe for spaghetti squash mac & cheese, with steamed broccoli and cauliflower, sliced orange, and some more cornbread. I liked the flavor, but the texture of the sauce wasn't my favorite... I am going to play with it a little bit. We did eat all of it, so it wasn't bad!
Fact: I was a vegetarian for years, but not eat fish and poultry. Why? Because I wanted to move away from overly restrictive eating. I also moved to Texas, which was not very veggie-friendly ;)
Sweet treat: AR and I shared a cookie before bed while looking at my taxes. Clearly I was stress eating. :)
