That was my eating yesterday...random.

as planned:
- coffee - check
- toast w/ PB2 - check
- banana - check
- chicken & avocado wrap - check
- granola bar - check
- yogurt & berries - check

- 3 oatmeal raisin chocolate chip cookies - doh
- cottage cheese - fine
- Cadbury Thin - doh
- no dinner - doh
- cereal @ 11pm because of no dinner - doh

I guess in the end it was fine points-wise, but just a mish-mosh of crap (over by about 6 points I think...but I didn't plan in any APs). My first mistake was thinking that one piece of toast was enough to start my morning on the right foot. Lack of sleep plus early morning workout = need bigger breakfast. Lesson learned. After that I was just nibbly and hungry all day, then our plans changed right at dinner time and I didn't want the pot pie because I'd eaten those cookies and didn't have time to deal with anything else so left for the hairdresser without eating. Which of course led to me being starving when I got home. Poor planning! Well, actually, good planning / poor execution!

Anyway, today will be better. :)

I took the day off from the gym today. I got a good sleep last night but it was only about 4 1/2 hours (thanks FH for coming home at 1am and keeping me awake) so it wasn't enough. I still got up early to drive FH to work, but I chose not to workout. I took myself to Starbucks instead, and will be doing yoga before I make lunch. I think a Power Flow #3 is in order....maybe a Hatha #1 too.

Tonight we are having FH's uncle and some of his friends over for dinner (he's a truck driver and they are all in town for a day or two). FH wants to BBQ....I think he meant on the Griddler....so I'm assuming steaks are on the menu, and I'll probably just grab some bagged Ceasar salad and roast up some spuds. I'm going to load up on veggies and fruit during the day so as to not throw my menu too far off track. I'm sure the boys will be into the beers, but I'll be staying away as I'm not much of a weeknight drinker and definitely have no interest in beer these days (in the Summer I enjoy a tasty beer but in Winter I can't be bothered).

Today the plan such as I see it....

- Starbucks double tall non-fat vanilla latte
- evil Starbucks apple cinnamon bun
- more coffeeeeeee w/ demerara & skim
- cold deli roast chicken, steamed brocolli
- grapes & light cheddar
- carrot sticks & lemon dill hummus if hungry waiting for dinner
- tiniest steak I can get my hands on (FH tends to buy them big!), spud w/ light sour cream, scoop of Caesar salad
- non-fat yogurt later if snacky
Pin It

You can always cut a steak down to the portion you want BEFORE it cooks.

For me, I cannot just "eat half". I am a meatavor, and I love me some steak. Leave it on the plate? Sacralige!

haha, Dee I have no problem with that. I usually just take an end off FH's steak if he's bought a biggie. Tonight I'll just save a piece for leftovers if he doesn't get me a little one.

oh bi0nic, i am so with you on the beer. bleh in winter, in summer it can be very refreshing. what are your thoughts on the power yoga 3? those warrior poses make my legs shake.

I like warrior 1 & 2...but 3 is toooo hard! (although I don't think 3 is in Power #3). I do like that practice but today I ended up doing the donation practice instead (which I didn't much care for).
