I went out for a lovely walk today- I was probably out for an hour before I started to get hungry and decided it was lunchtime. I made 1/2 cup of egg whites in the microwave just like last time, and then made it into a sandwich with a toasted whole wheat English muffin, mustard & ketchup, spinach, and tomato. I wish I had some cheese for this though, that would have made it perfect! On the side I had a sweet potato which I microwaved until soft and then cut into cubes and sauteed on the stovetop until crispy. Ketchup for dipping, of course.
I finished one shift at job #1 at 7 and my shift at job #2 was actually supposed to start at 7 (obviously I didn’t get there on time, thank goodness everyone who works there is crazy laid back and just happy that I show up), so needless to say dinner was eaten on the run. I had a kamut tortilla with a banana and about 2 tablespoons of PB&Co’s Mighty Maple PB. I LOVE this pb flavour!!!!! The hint of sweetness is perfect. Ughhh I would move to the states just for the food products. Well I actually might be moving to the states, but that’s a different story. Also, my boyfriend tells me that no one who lives in the states, actually calls it the states. It’s America. Or the US. Or, as my grandpa says, the US of A. Well, that was quite the tangent.
I snacked too much at work tonight- I was distracted every time I was eating, which means I didn’t enjoy it enough so I ate more in volume to make up for the lack of satisfaction, and also means that I don’t even know how much I ate. I had a few handfulls of my co-workers fries, which were just a little too heavy for me (as I’m feeling now) and lots more bites of gelato. I just feel kind of bloated now. I need to stop making excuses for myself for eating while at work. If I’m going to be hungry, bring a snack. Or just don’t eat it.
Oooh I was going to end there but I just remembered something I wanted to share 🙂 One of the girls I work with asked me tonight if I was ever a gymnast. I was a little confused (wondered why she would ask?) and replied that I used to figure skate. I still have pretty good tone in my legs (though I’m not sure that it’s leftover from my skating days) and I tend to get complimented on my legs and my bum. Haha I feel silly saying that, but really, I always get told that I have a nice bum. It’s a pretty good bum, I guess. Ok no more bum I have to stop there. Annnnyway wow I am on a roll with tangents today. Back to my story- when I told her I used to skate she was like ‘ohh well I asked if you did gymnastics because you have really toned arms’. I have never been told I had anything close to tone in my arms!!!! Must be all those 20lb boxes I lift for 8 hours a day at job #1 🙂 Anyway her comment made me smile and definitely makes me want to tone up all the rest of me just as nicely 🙂
Have a happy rest-of-weekend! 🙂
