Okay, giving this another try today. This will not be a regular addition to my blog, it’s just been an interesting experiment for me.
Pre-work out breakfast, 3/4 cup Joe’s O’s (cheerios) and 1/2 cup nonfat milk.
Post-work out breakfast- Oatmeal pancake with flaxseed meal and banana:
My sister would make this pancake years ago when she did Body For Life. She suggested I add flaxseed meal. Here’s how, mix 2 egg whites, 1/3 cup quick oats, 2 T flaxseed meal, 1/8 t baking powder, 1/8 t cinnamon. Pour onto a hot pan sprayed with non-stick spray and cook about 4 minutes on each side.
Lunch- turkey, red bell pepper, avocado, cream cheese on Ezekiel bread and a half a bell pepper on the side. Too full for the apple.
Snack- 1 oz walnuts and two chocolate chip (with chickpeas) cookies:
Dinner- left over lasagna, spinach salad with Gorgonzola and pecans, plus a slice of bread. I also ate my son’s crust.
To avoid the crazy eating from the night before, I asked my hubby to package up/throw away any and all leftovers and I immediately went on my walk. Now the dishes wait, but all the food to pick at is gone. Plus getting on the treadmill kind of turns all that off for me.
I won’t be blogging my eating tomorrow, simply because it is a drastic change for me, and I worry about the rebound. I must say that this really has helped give me a healthy view of what I eat; how I eat; what I eat. There has been no eating while prepping meals because I was “starving”. I’ve had more veggies than I typically do. And I’ve been conscious about my eating, rather than mindlessly eating out of boredom.
