I clearly need to get better about posting my food the day I eat it! I promise I will get into the swing of things soon! I was planning on doing last night but I was exhausted! I know, excuses, excuse 😉
Let’s run through this:
- 1/2 serving Kashi Cinnamon Harvest
- 1/2 cup Kashi Go Lean Crunch
- 2/3 cup fat free milk
- frozen blueberries (love the cold & the crunch!)
- half of a banana
- flax seed
- almond slivers
I loved this! So good, refreshing and kept me full all the way till lunch!
For lunch, my co-worker and I headed to a local sandwich shop that we have both been wanting to try, Mangialardo and Sons, Inc. It’s one of those whole in the wall, DC landmarks, so when it was brought up, I couldn’t resist.
I ordered the G-Man, and didn’t really think about what would be coming on it. No whole wheat buns, and I assumed it would just come with oil and vinegar which I could live with. Well I was wrong. (So I scraped off the mayo. A little stayed on obviously, but it was better than nothing, right?) It was delicious I am not going to lie. A genuine Italian sub. I ate about 3/4 of it trying to get rid of as much bread as possible. Yum. It is my lunch splurge for the week. That’s for sure.
For dinner it was just me as my roommate had a date, so I looked to my freezer for inspiration for a one person meal.
I picked up these Turkey Meatballs from Trader Joe’s a few weeks ago for such an occasion, and inspired by my trip to the deli yesterday created a low-cal, healthy version of a meatball sub.
- Sandwich Thin
- 3 Turkey Meatballs
- Tomato sauce (with lots of herbs added in!)
- A sprinkle of low-fat mozzarella cheese
- Plus a spinach salad on the side
This was delicious, and so much better for me than my sandwich at lunch. A good lesson for me that I can make just as tasty things, using better ingredients, that are so much better for me. Lesson learned. 😀 That’s what this blog is all about. Finding that healthy, happy balance. Sometime’s I’ll make “mistakes” but I move on and find out how to change those habits. It’s what I have to do! And it’s all I can do!
All in all, not a bad day. I find myself making better decisions each day and that’s what counts. It’s the small feats!
I also headed home from work yesterday and jumped on the treadmill for 3 miles. It was a good workout for me. I’m still doing the walk run combo, but definitely running more and more!
I’ll let you all know how it is 🙂
