Okay, I'm trying to find something GOOD to say about this day.....
Not that it was a "bad" day or anything...but as far as my eating and exercise go...not the best.
I started it out good by having an egg-white scramble for breakfast with 2 light WW toasts and 1 turkey bacon (250 cal). For some quick exercise before I took a shower, I did 20 minutes on the elliptical. I did 1 minute going so hard and fast I was breathless and my HR was up around 170 and then 1 minute of "recovery" where I was still working hard but not so hard I couldn't breathe and on and on. So in all, I did 10 minutes of the HARD stuff and 10 minutes of the less hard stuff. According to my HR monitor, I burned 153 calories. Then at lunchtime I had a hair appointment and had to just grab something quickly, so I grabbed a Mojo mountain mix trail bar (180 cal--protien bar) and a small banana and a water. When I got home from that at 3:30, I was pretty hungry so I had a bowl of my weight watchers soup (42 cal)
For appetizer (while I was getting dinner ready) I made a small bowl of guacamole and we split that.
For dinner, Matt and I had a bowl of the WW soup (2 cups--84 cal). Each of us also had 2 Rosemary Kashi Go Lean crackers with a peice of turkey and pepperjack cheese on top.
Then here is where the Baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaad part comes in. After all that we were still hungry. I knew my mom had this wonderful strawberry cream cake at her house and I was wanting a piece SO Bad....but instead, I tried to satisfy my craving with a sugar free fudgsicle (60 cal)....Blah! Then I tried a 100 cal pack of chips-ahoy crips---Blah! Then off to my moms I went for a slice of cake! Yep, after all that I had a slice of cake. If it's any consolation, I didn't eat ANY of the icing. I scraped it all off and just ate the cake with the fresh strawberries in the middle. YUM! Believe me when I say..I needed this cake. I was having a tough night with 2 screamng kids and a grouchy husband and I needed an escape. Yes, I'm aware that a work out would have been a MUCH better choice...but for a quick (and delicious) fix the cake did it! :o)
Hey, I can't be good all the time! :o)
