Today's thoughts


so this was yesterday.. I made the Protein mug cake I mentioned in one of my previous post's... looks amazing??? .... right... well looks can be deceiving  It was GAWD AWFUL !! dry, so danged dry I could barely eat it!! oh one of the bummers of the calorie counter I am using is it is easy to put the counts in the wrong day... notice I put all yesterdays into Saturday..... ah yesterday was Friday!! lol


beautiful... ah not!! 


one of my meals yesterday. I love the Walden Farms zero calorie BBQ sauce 


this morning's freezing cold walk, I won't do that again without mittens and ear muffs!! then I went to the gym and trained... and did another 25 minutes of cardio. I got in my cardio today for sure! 


so I have been eating these protein oats for a while now. I know I have posted it numerous times. I make it with 1/4 cup oats (truthfully probably more because the measuring cup is not level) and chia seeds, flax meal and I add a scoop of protein well with the new calorie counter I have been using I got a more accurate count 


yes you read correctly ... 371 calories for breakfast!!! what am I nuts!!!  I think I will be having egg whites and Ezekiel toast from now on!! No wonder my weight was running high... well that and those 6 brownies  and 4 servings of macaroni and cheese I ate at the work Christmas buffet


well it is back to basics... 


staples in the ole household 

well guys have a nice Saturday and I will catch cha later

Preparation is key!



 I am away from the house for 12 hours a day. 10 hour work days and a two hour commute.... so preparation is KEY!! 


I ate this before I left the house... My oats and protein 


tuna, onions and tapenade 


Greek yogurt, Chia seeds, Splenda, vanilla and a splash of coconut milk. I add coconut milk because the chia seeds thicken the yogurt so the coconut milk makes it more yogurty


grapefruit 


3 oz brown rice, 3 oz turkey loaf, broccoli and carrots and some Walden Farms BBQ sauce 


Asian salad. I went easy on the dressing, and 3 oz chicken 


When I got home I enjoyed this ENTIRE pint of yumminess!!! only 150 calories .... weeeeeeee


see yall tomorrow

Really??!!


morning usually starts with a quarter cup dry measure oats, chia seeds a serving of flax meal add to that a scoop of protein and a few Splenda's  


egg white omelette with onions and mushrooms, strawberries 



8 ozs spagetti squash and 3 oz turkey loaf with wing sauce AND my gallon of water... yep I drank it all today!! 


yummo!! Grapefruit 



Greek yogurt, blackberries, chia seeds and a splash of coconut milk and a few Splenda's 


I made pot roast for the family... I just ate some of the carrots, onions and mushrooms 


I worked out tonight, my trainer gave me crap for these two Gin-Gins's 
really!!! 40 calories... Come on now!! 


came home and had some egg whites

all done for today 





Back in business!!!

So I woke up sandwiched between Izzy and Jack 


and I noticed now my phone won't charge!!! I have to rubber band the charger to put tension on the cord so it will charge... forget this!!! time for a new phone 


woo hoo a new Iphone 4S!!! 

Tuesday I went to Whole Foods...ie Whole Paycheck and got this cool bread

 



looks amazing!!? right

even better I added some Nutzo, I was super careful and weighed it on the scale to only get One tablespoon 



the Nutzo was delish... the bread... err not so much 



broccoli, 3 oz brown rice, 3 oz chicken with Walden Farms BBQ sauce 


Asian salad, easy on the dressing and 3 oz chicken  


the Grapefruit was OMG!!!! AMAZING!!! 
I took the Quest bar, but I was feeling guilty, I need to be eating simple foods, and getting my protein from chicken, turkey or fish .... so I gave it to one of my checkers... she liked it .... duh 



I got this instead of the Quest bar, the chicken was a 6 oz container, so I had half ... easy peasy 


Greek yogurt, chia seeds, Splenda and blackberries 


and of course I journal, otherwise I eat too much. Writing it down helps me 




boom!! good day!! ate good, got in a half hour of cardio, drank a gallon of water 

Yowsa!!
