I'm getting pretty nervous about being able to roll back this weekend bulge. First of all, yesterday's lunch was SUSHI, which is pretty hard to resist. Still, this plate had only about 500 calories (perfect!). But then...then....I went back (twice!!) for white rice and sauteed veggies. Why?!? Ugh, I decided to call lunch 800 cals, but it was probably 900. =(
Why the celebration? Well, I'm proud to say that Boyfriend is completing his third (last) year of residency and starting his gastroenterology fellowship. As you can probably imagine, between me (pathologist) and him (gastroenterologist) our conversations can get pretty yucky! I have to consciously stay away from that stuff on the blog!
There's absolutely nothing that I hate more than being dissatisfied with a class, especially when I pay for it! Waste of time and money and too few calories burned. Terrible feeling. What's your biggest fitness pet peeve?
1 medium sized cucumber (peeled and seeded)
1 small clove garlic (grated) *garlic powder will do fine*
1/2 cup Greek Yogurt (Fage 0%)
1 lemon (zest and juice)
S+P, lemon pepper
I did take the dressing/dip to work this morning and it actually did provide a delicious, cool and refreshing taste to my boring lettuce/cuc/tomato salad I stole from work yesterday (pasta on top). Miscellaneous snacks brought this meal up to 500 cal.
Breakfast was another attempt at a Peaches and Cream Overnight Oat Jar (not pictured, looks just like yesterday's) but I pureed the frozen peaches in the milk/yogurt base before adding the oatmeal. Verdict: frozen peaches are just not good for this thing. It was still tasty, just not great. Snacks with breakfast also came out to 500 cal.
My plan for the weekend weight rollback is the "Eat breakfast like a king (queen), lunch like a prince (princess) and breakfast like a pauper" mantra. 500 cal for breakfast and lunch, work out and then attempt less than 500 cal for dinner, putting me at less than 1200 cal net (I know this is technically "too little" but it does leave room for the snacks that find their way into my mouth seemingly of their own accord). To be perfectly honest, 500 cal breakfast and lunch is a LOT and people have actually made comments on how MUCH I eat. So if dinner is a little light, I don't feel that I'm denying myself anything.
It's also Day 7 of chocolate detox, which means I *can* but don't *have to* have chocolate tomorrow! Maybe I'll make some sort of chocolaty breakfast and hit two birds with one stone!
P.S. You wouldn't believe what I'm craving right now: cauliflower! I wish I could justify buying some but there's just too much stuff in our fridge right now. Including beets! Borscht?
