Good Evening. I think I missed a day again with the blogging, but last night I was just exhausted. I hate being that tired, to where you feel sick. So let’s start with yesterday’s eats, shall we? Just as a reminder, I am still out of town. The eats will change drastically when I get home, for sure!
So let’s get to it.
Breakfast was some protein and some carbs:
There’s that blackberry jelly again! I have no idea how it keeps getting on my food. 😉
Today’s breakfast was my special Saturday pancakes. I didn’t make them into shapes like I do for the kids, though:
Sorry about the old picture…this one didn’t turn out from this morning. But it probably looked the same, anyway! Dad and I also had eggs with our pancake…he had 2 whole eggs and I had 2 egg whites.
Yesterday’s lunch was a turkey sandwich at the cancer center where I’ve been taking Mom. It was ok. I guess I wasn’t very hungry, because that was all I felt like eating:
Mom was having some minor surgery later that day so while I was waiting for her I read my Oxygen Magazine (I’m a loser…I bring my own mags, LOL) and snacked on some chocolate covered almonds:
The nutritional value of the above almonds (which I got at Wegmans and are fantastic, by the way…they’re in the natural food section):
Dinner was a mish-mash of stuff that I felt like eating when Mom and I got home. It was such an exhausting day, but all is well. 😀
I had probably 3 more shrimp. 🙂 Isn’t that a strange dinner? I thought it was, but it tasted good!
Let’s look at the shrimp up close:
Today for lunch before my run (YAY! I finally got to run!!) there was a salad with Goddess Dressing and chicken:
Gosh, that is an awful picture, but you get the point. VEGGIES! I miss eating more veggies! 🙂
Dinner was great and more indicative of the kind of food I would eat at home:
Roasted chicken (I don’t eat the skin anymore…I used to, but I stopped for caloric reasons and now I don’t like it!) veggies…green beans, peppers, yellow squash and zucchini, sweet potato with cinnamon, and sour dough bread with a bit of butter. YUMMY!
Here are the screen shots from my workout today…I did 5 miles on the treadmill and 1 mile on the eliptical just to try it out:
I think I did ok. Not much of a change in mileage time from my last long run. I hope to finish the 1/2 marathon right around 2 hours (hopefully under!). I’m not competitive with other people, but I am with myself! It’s what’s going to get me through!
Have a great Saturday night! And just a side note, happy birthday to Shaunna and Gisella! Hope y’all had great days! 😀
