I've been eating my oatmeal or oat bran w/o the peanut butter. This has been better for me! And having cereal (Kashi Go Lean) w/ cranberries and almonds on the side of it so that I am full in the morning. It seems to help so that there are less spoon and peanut butter jar issues. I am back to some smoothies the last 2 days. I bought the frozen cherry berry mix of fruits from trader joe's and that makes me want a smoothie. I've been eating well with fruits and veggies and good snacks, but I still wake up starving and am hungry at night. I counted calories a couple of days and it was around 2000-2200. I'm thinking maybe I need to eat more, but that whole eating more thing when I want to get some weight off, has never worked for me. What do you think?
Here's an idea of what I'm eating this week (it hasn't changed much)
balance bar pre workout
Oatbran/Oatmeal w/ a little brown sugar, flaxseed, wheat germ and cinnamon
Kashi Go Lean w/ cranberries and almonds
cherry/blueberry/raspberry/blackberry/ banana, milk and flax smoothie
multigrain flax trader joe's crackers w/ my almond nutter
2 mini apples
a bunch of werthers - a big problem - I eat alot of these
California veggie burger - dr praegers on whole wheat bread - these are yummy - w/ ketchup
Z bar/granola bar/pick at kashi at night
One of my worst things is when I bake. I always have to try what I've baked and try the batter. I did that yesterday. The picture of the blondies that I saw just made me have to make some for a friend whose dog died. No matter how hard I try, I almost always can't say no to licking the spoon and trying the baked good. What is your biggest temptation?
I haven't been running very well, so I cut back to longer runs but less days. Pushing the stroller makes running insane. My whole upper body gets a major workout too. Abby was brave and pushed it for a bit while we ran on Tuesday. I ran with it today and it felt like the longest run ever.
Today I received some POM juice in the mail that I am going to try out and tell you about soon!
Hope everyone is having a good week!
