This is going to be a quick post! I came home tonight feeling completely tuckered out! Even though I’m feeling mostly better, my energy and appetite is still a little awry. I decided that this morning I would rather go for a 4-mile walk with mom then a 4-mile run by myself, because I just couldn’t see myself pumping through the hard hills. Your body can speak volumes, and sometimes you just gotta listen! 😉
For breakfast, I made a nice big bowl of a favorite yogurt mix:
- 6 oz. plain yogurt mixed with 1/2 c. pumpkin
- 1.5 c. Kashi heart to heart
- 1 banana, sliced
- 2 T. almonds
Simple but amazing. I love crunchiness. 😀
After the walk, I wasn’t feeling very hungry until around 11, when it suddenly hit me that I was really hungry. That’s what’s kind of weird about this flu. One minute, I’m feeling overfull, and the next minute I’m starving. Blah!
I knew that lunch was right around the corner, so I went with an apple to tide me over until then.
With risks of being overly repetitive and–gasp…boring?–I had yet another lentil walnut burger. My choice was based on two reasons: (1) I hate seeing things go to waste. And (2) I don’t think I could ever grow tired of them! 😀 I think the best part of these lentil walnut burgers are the minced walnut peices spread throughout. It makes for such an interesting and unexpected crunch, which I love. 😀
I made a basic salad mix and topped it with green olives, the lentil walnut burger, and a big spoonful of salsa.
+ some kashis and a slice of Kraft cheese.
It was a fun lunch. 😀
I like to have “nibbling snacks” for a long afternoon of classes. Oranges and almonds are two of my top choices and that is what I went with. 😀
Dinner was another leftover, but I enjoyed it even more then the original version. I heated a bowl of turkey soup until it was piping hot, and had a toast spread with hummus on the side. Mmm…this totally hit the spot after walking around campus on a cold, rainy day. 😀
+ a frozen chocolate chip cookie..I think this is going to be my last for a while. I’d like to save some for next month too. 😉
Snack for the night:
- 6 oz. plain yogurt
- 1/2 c. frozen, wild blueberries
- 2 T. Natures Path Pumpkin Granola
I always forget how much I enjoy this mix until I have it. 😀 I like to stir it all up, which lets the blueberries dethaw just a teensy bit. 😀
I think tonight is going to be an early night to bed!! I hope you all had a good Monday back into the work (or school!) week! By the way, is tomorrow really already December 1st?
