Today has been one of those quietly busy days. D and I got so much done, but it felt so relaxing at the same time!
My breakfast didn't stay with me very long. About 3 hours after I ate my breakfast cookie, I chowed down into a small bowl of cottage cheese, pumpkin puree, cinnamon, and nutmeg.
I poured a little sugar free maple syrup over the top.
Then lunch came about an hour later.
Leftover potatoes (102 grams) with ketchup (1 T)
and the same lunch I ate yesterday.
It was pretty darn tasty. Right after this, D and I got going on our errands. We went to Sears to get a fan for our bedroom. Then we dropped D's car off to get new tires put on. And after that, we hit the gym. I did a biceps and back workout.
- 21's - 30 pounds, 3 sets
- bent over row - 40 pounds, 3 sets of 12
- hammer curls - 12 pound dumbbells, 3 sets of 20
- lat pull downs - 70 pounds, 3 sets of 12
- back extensions - 3 sets of 25
- seated close grip row - 50 pounds, 3 sets of 12
My stats looked something like this:
Time - 40 minutes
Calories burned - 169
Max heart rate - 142
Average heart rate - 110
Usually I would be disappointed with the lack of calories I burned, but I didn't want to push too hard with my hips in the state they're in.
As soon as we came home, I devoured this bowl of food.
- 1/2 cup cottage cheese
- 2/3 cup plain yogurt
- 2 T pumpkin puree
- 1/2 scoop vanilla protein powder
Can you tell I love pumpkin?
Dinner was alright tonight - not amazing.
Chicken Caesar Salad
- 4 cups romaine
- 5.5 ounces chicken breast
- 7 grams croutons
- 1 1/2 T caesar salad dressing
- lots of lemon juice
I usually don't even like caesar salad, but I've been craving summer foods lately (e.i. burgers last night).
I'm still hungry... what shall I eat, what shall I eat? I'm not sure yet.
Have a great night everyone :)
