You know what tastes better than lunch? Free lunch of course! I was given $20 by my company to get lunch. Sweet! Since I was up at 4:50am on Wednesday and did 1 hour of spin (burned 478 calories and biked 21.5 miles), I was super hungry. I did eat breakfast but it never lasts long and if I don't eat a snack by 10 am, I have to eat lunch at 11am or I start to gnaw my own arm off.
I had a couple of errands to run on my lunch break so I stopped in at Wegmans to get some grub from the salad and food bars. This was my concoction:
It was much bigger than it looks here but it had:
-romaine lettuce (there was no spring mix!? the horror!)
-a scoop of summer chicken salad
-4 small shrimp from the Chinese food bar
This salad weighed out to over $10! I devoured it. I love, no LOVE salad. Ask anyone that knows me. I love how crunchy it is and that every single bite is different. I love that there are 1,000's of different combos you can do so no salad is ever the same. I also love the fact that you can eat a ton of it and you don't feel heavy or weighed down.Yes, there was quite a lot of protein on my salad. Every one is different but I found that in my particular case, protein is where it's at. If I eat a high carb or sugar breakfast, I am shaky and starving just a couple of hours later (which is why I hate pancakes). I always eat protein at breakfast. I don't, personally, find carbs to be filling. Protein takes much longer to break down and my body just thrives on it. I do not, however, follow a low carb diet at all. I just get the majority of my carbs from fruit or vegetable sources. It works for me.
I also had this to drink:
I also had one of these as dessert:
Oh man, these are good!
I also had a few extra minutes Wednesday morning before I left for work and "gold dusted" my eyes:
Anyway, Thursday night, I will be doing intervals. I'm assuming the usual which is:
20 minute treadmill run
20 minute stair climber
20 minute elliptical
I get the treadmill run out of the way first! zzzzzzz It's almost Friday and I get out early! What are you planning on doing today for exercise?
