Whew what a busy day!! Tuesdays are always busy! I'm on campus from 8-5 and only one hour break in there from classes! So with this comes challenges of eating!! Before starting all of this, with days like this I would be lucky if I would eat at all. So I had to get creative on simple things to bring with me to campus. One thing is trail mix! Now I had to make my own because I"m allergic to almonds and most trail mixes have almonds in them! So I just got raw cashews, sunflower seeds, walnuts, coconut, and yogurt covered raisins. It really good!! So along with that I brought an apple with me, half a turkey sandwich, a baggy of carrots, and a babybel cheese. Sounds like so much to eat and it is!! But trust me is' only like 1,000 calories for all of that!! Another accomplishment is I actually ate breakfast! Special K with 2% milk.
Also knowing that today was going to be busy I decided for dinner just to put a pot roast in the crock pot. I just seasoned it up with garlic powder, onion powder, salt and pepper. I also added carrots and small red potatos to the pot and like a cup of water. Turned it on low and let it simmer all day. Oh it was so good then I got home, and I even have left overs to do something else with tomorrow night!
So this morning before running out of the door I happened to notice my pedometer sitting on my desk. So I thought why no I'll put it on for the day. The current count is at 10,147 steps. That's crazy!! Especially before putting it on I had already been out in the barn feeding the horses and everything!! That just tells you how much running around I do on Tuesdays haha. So that's about 5 miles of walking today!
Still not quite done for the day, going to do some ab exercises that I found in a magazine that looked really good. My calorie count fell below what I want it at, at about 1300 calories for the day. And i"m full!! Harder than I thought it would be to get to 1500!
Anyways I hope I didn't ramble too much and healthy living to everyone!
Sorry no pic today of my food, I was too excited to eat it and totally forgot!
