Week 5, Day 1/Day 29
8:30 AM–morning coffee with a splash of milk 20 cals along with a Kashi Pumpkin Spice Flax Bar @ 180 cals
11am couldnt wait any longer to try the 200 cal DiGiorno pizzas that I picked up, but then I accidentally burnt it (is this a sign?) so I only ate about half of it after cutting off the burnt edges for approx. 100 cals It is Pizza Month after all!
I followed this by a serving of cottage cheese @ 90 cals and a Diet Root Beer
By 1pm I needed to get out so I walked up the street for a coffee with a splash of milk 20 cals and impluse bought a loaf of bread with which I decided to make a turkey sandwich
The particular type of bread that I got (Sarah Lee Honey Wheat) is 150 cals for two slices, lucky me. I added about 60 cals worth of turkey to it and about 10 cals of alfalfa sprouts and tomato slices for a 220 calorie sandwich. very low cal for a sandwich and so satisfying!
Around 5pm I started to make dinner–I decided to make Roasted Beets, aromatic rice and field peas–AKA Hoppin John, and I even posted the recipe as well. I had about a cup of rice which is about 250 cals, plus the beets with the oil they were cooked in probably came to about 150 cals, and the field peas should be about 80 cals.
Dinner comes to a total of 480 cals! But it was good and good for me too. I had plenty of energy for my workout and had 90 calories to spare for the post-workout snack…I decided on a pumpkin beer which is 150 cals but whatever. Today’s total comes to 1260.
