Anyone get that reference in the title? It’s from the Hunger Games. I recently purchased Audible, because I have a new found love for listening to books on tape and I’m on book 3 of the Hunger Games series. Normally, I’m more of a memior or autobio girl, but these books are so. good.
Anyway, yesterday I was hungry all day. Nothing seemed to satisfy me for longer than
30 minutes 2 hours.
I have been seriously slacking in taking pictures of my lunch, dinner and snacks but I usually remember to capture breakfast. Here’s my improv.
As always, thanks to Jenn for this fabulous link-up.
4:45 TurboFire Fire EZ 45 DVD + Stretch 10
Baked Protein Puff Pancake with Blueberries + Fitmixer Aminos and 2 tsp of ACV (working up to a Tablespoon)
Topped with a little coconut butter and PB.
Wasn’t hungry for a snack, despite my hollow day.
A new lunch combo! Grilled chicken with 1/2 of a roasted sweet potatoes and some roasted veggies/squash. I was worried this would be lacking in flavor because there were no seasonings besides salt, but this was a pretty delicious lunch. I think I’ll be making this every Sunday to have for a few days.
Along with a side of canteloupe (unpictured). Delish. The secret to delicious, juicy canteloupe it to leave it sit on your counter for a
few days week until it ripens. It can even be a little moldy on the outside (I don’t let mine sit that long, but I hear it’s better that way)! Sounds gross, but like I said, leaving it sit to ripen is key.
2:30 Snack #1
Plain greek yogurt + stevia + Trader Joe’s Cherry Medley frozen fruit mix. This was pretty delicious although thawed, once-frozen blueberries aren’t the greatest unless their in something that’s cooked.
Forgot to snap a photo, but I made this soup (Monday’s recipe because I’m a day behind on the meal plan) with quick cooking barley + a can of green chiles added to the mix. This is definitely a keeper. So incredibly easy and delicious.
I had a pita bread on the side (Joseph’s 60 calorie pitas) with spray butter because I felt like I needed some carbs. I was cravin’ some.
7:30 Snack #2
Protein muffin with some Maranatha Caramel Almond Butter, a few chocolate chips and a dark chocolate Hershey’s kiss all melted on top. This is a delicious snack with lots of protein. A little high in sugar, but I feel like it’s my one treat for the day so it’s okay.
After this, I still felt hungry. I had about 1/2 C of cateloupe and a spoonful of White Chocolate Wonderful PB. Still not satisfied but I decided to call it a night since I was over my calorie limit and tried to chug water instead.
I was supposed to do TurboFire Core 20 + Strech 40 DVD this morning, but I decided to skip on the Strech 40 and do it after work. I’m also going to try my new Brooks Running shoes too! I am so excited. They are heavenly… like walking on little clouds. I can only imagine how nice they are to run in
Having good workout gear (clothes, equipment, etc.) really makes you look forward to working out. The same will be true when I order my HRM once I reach my weight goal > only .6 lbs to go! I’m going to make sure I stay on track this weekend and try to hit it next week. I think I decided on ordering the Polar FT60 with the foot pod.
