Well anyway, breaking the fast was maybe a disaster. I came home and chugged two bottles of water (thirst is always worse than hunger) and sat down to a delicious dinner. But my aunt and uncle were late, so while we stalled a little I inadvertently drank 2 glasses of wine! (I meant to drink 1). Ok, maybe not a DISASTER!
To top off the meal, I had a few bites of dessert (Rugalah). Sadly, the real end to my night was a headache =(
The base (190cals):
1/2 cup vanilla yogurt (I use Dannon Light N' Fit)
1/2 milk (I used vanilla Slender Soy milk, SO GOOD!!!)
1/3 cup rolled oats
The add-ins: 80 cals?
1/2 cup canned pumpkin
2 tbsp sugar free maple syrup (or regular0
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp chia seeds
Feel free to add 1/2 packet sweetener.
In the morning it comes out looking like this. The perfect oatmeal texture, but just a little bit chewy because the oats are rolled.
For a porridge-like texture, use the instant oats. I've tried and loved both but have the rolled oats on hand now.
Total damage: 270 cals. Tastes like: at least 1.5 slices of pumpkin pie (500 cals?)
Still this was a nice lunch. 1 whole wheat wrap (60 cals) + 6 slices of tofu (130 cals) + some cabbage with dressing (50 cals?)
This was really great, actually. It took a while to eat and was easy to do at my desk while waiting for more work to arrive. =(
Anyway, I think that's all for now, food wise.
Some things coming up: fellowship interviews (hopefully!), engagement parties, 10 year high school reunion (!!!!)...
Today was a hot yoga day. I've been doing more recently because running is less comfortable, but oh man, I had by a** handed to me today. Even when I came in the room was hotter than normal and the instructor changed around the sequence of poses. The poses themselves weren't hard but this was the first Yoga To The People Class that I just couldn't make it through. I had to take breaks!
I came home and all I wanted was a big bowl of Brussels sprouts, but I added a tiny bowl of Boyfriend's pasta to that, so I'm thinking I lost the calorie battle tonight. Oh well, tomorrow's another day. I'm gonna make myself a nice jar of Pumpkin Pie oats and head to bed!
