Today was a wash out. It poured all. day. long! But, maybe I needed it since I’ve been feeling super dehydrated yesterday and today.
I had some black coffee, water, and an oatmeal raison Luna bar ( classic goodness)
At lunch my appetite kicked in with gusto ( like the wind outside )
I WAS HUNG-AR-Y:
a small salad with walnuts, veggies, and sun dried tomatoes….. I clearly needing something more filling so… I ended up dumping this salad onto my finished platter plate and added more tofu, some egg whites, and water chestnuts plus more grapes and some green tea 🙂 ahh satisfaction
I can’t explain my metabolism today but hey…I’m listening to my body and it’s saying eat, so I’m not complaining 😉
Anyway I had a great gym sesh as I attempted to read the new SHAPE magazine, but was more into my music. Today’s music playlist consisted of cheesy girl songs…YEAH GIRL POWER!
45 min on the elliptical
5 mins on the bike
about 15 mins on the precore
Abs– frog leg style. ( I’ll post a how-to on this kind of ab work out when I get a chance )
DINNER was very GREEK!
ANYWAY I had: salmon, veggies, with a sprinkle of pine nuts, almond slices, and sunflower seeds, plus balsamic. Dessert was: plain yogurt with honey, almond slices, and grapes. My crazy appetite today led me to then consume: 1.5 apples, 1 T of pb, more yogurt and more grapes.
AHHHHHHHHH. hungry hungry brittany.
I probably consumed more calories than usual today, but I felt like I needed them. Which brings me to my Question of the day:
how do you feel about counting calories or what about keeping a food journal…if your not dieting? What are your experiences with this.. I’d like to know!
I have a habit of counting calories some days which I’m trying to stop because I think it forms an unhealthy mindset about food. And it associates a number and an allowance for what you “can” enjoy and what you “can’t”. I do however think it’s a good idea to keep a food journal of what you eat or at least remember things you’ve eaten throughout the day to form a well balanced diet.
Goodnight from a no longer thirsty or hungry Britt ♥
