Well today was a challenge. Though I must say that I tried to make healthy choice and stay strong. I was simply too busy today. Got up for 5again to be at the gym for my muscle moves class (weight training). That was a good 45 of weight and strength training. After that I went and walked/mainly ran on the treadmill at varying inclines 1.5-4. The treadmill told me I burned 132 calories doing this for 17 minutes. Not too shabby. So I get to work and first thing I go to do is enter this data on http://www.myfitnesspal.com/ (the website I was raving about yesterday). HOWEVER i was very upset when I went to enter my work out information. I found that the website does not consider the strength training exercising (weight lifting) as burning calories. So according to the website I only burned the calories I burned while running and my walking (info a-la pedometer). Frustrating, but I know that I burned calories, but maybe not everyone will feel the same way.
Also today I struggled while I was at my second job (between 4-8pm). There was jujubes out on the table. And if you will remember yesterday I was saying how I find being there difficult to resist temptation, and jujubes I was done for. I tried to avoid them as best as possible but between 4-5pm I was starved, and knew I couldn't eat my dinner that early. So I grab 3 jujubes. After having 3, and having the yummy taste in my mouth, I proceeded to have 4 more four more for a total of 7 jujubes. The nutritional info on the packaging told me that there was 110 cals for 6 jujubes. So I have definitely taken this information and though it isn't a lot, I feel the guilt.
So my meals today . . . . .
Breakfast was tasty though completely unoriginal from yesterday, the exact same thing. I had 2/3 cup of P.C Blue Menu granola with 1/2 a banana, and 2/3 cups of skim milk. I had 6 oz of my fav O.J.My snack was a new twist. I had a cheese string. I mean really they really are wonderful. They are the perfect serving size of 1 oz of cheese, and its fun to eat! Plus I had a cup (yes I measured) of coffee with 2oz of skim milk and 1 tsp of sugar.I had a couple of meetings before and right after lunch, both of which were out of the office. So I went back to the office for about an hour and a half. Then suddenly it was 12:45pm and I hadn't eaten yet. So I started to eat my salad. Chicken ranch salad. 2 cups of romaine lettuce, 1/2 cup of cucumber, and 2tpbs of Kraft Low Cal Ranch salad dressing. However I needed to leave the office to get to my 1:30 meeting and I wasn't able to finish it all. After my meeting, around 3:30 I had 1/2 cup of raspberries. Gotta make sure you get your moneys worth and they don't go bad sitting in the fridge waiting for the next time you remember about them.
So 5:00 rolls around, and I am all over eating my dinner. 1 cup of Cateli Smart Spaghettini, with about 2/3 of a cup of Bravo pasta sauce. I seasoned it with some Cumin, basil, oregano, salt, peeper, and chili powder. I also added some sliced zucchini, an orange bell pepper, red onion, and tomato. It was all very tasty.
Well I did mention that I cheated, so I snapped a picture of my first 3 jujubes I ate, remember I ate 7 of them in total. Yes I was bad and cheated. :(
Well that was my day in food and exercise. Thanks for reading.
