Ryan treated me to my favorite little diner near our apartment for lunch today! We usually go for breakfast (they have the best breakfasts and make really yummy egg white omelets!) but today I branched out and ordered from the lunch menu. I ordered a “Cali Shredder Bowl” with brown rice at the bottom, then lettuce, and topped with chicken, grape tomatoes, a sprinkle of goat cheese and fresh guacamole. I requested the dressing to be on the side and I only used one of those little cups on my salad. It was soooo delicious and I was so starving when I got there I was about to eat my arm. I basically ate the entire thing, leaving only a little left on the bottom, which Ryan finished for me. It tasted very fresh and healthy and my body was craving it after doing cardio this morning.
After lunch we went over and hung out with my parents for awhile and now are are back and leaving for the concert in about an hour. I’m not planning on drinking much tonight because I start my new class tomorrow and want to feel great, not lousy and hungover!
Just now, I snacked on one of my new balance bars. Seriously when I start making my workouts more intense, my appetite goes WAY up! It seriously sky rockets. So, you might see me eating more than I have been as I continue to work on my strength training in the upcoming weeks. Need that fuel!! 🙂 My balance bar was AWESOME. One of the best bars I’ve ever had. It was just like a larabar, but chewier. I liked the texture better actually. And, it contains more protein than a larabar so it should keep me fuller for longer. Too bad these guys are so expensive; I really enjoyed the taste!
I’ll probably post tonight’s post in the morning since I’m sure we will be getting back quite late from the concert tonight! It’s about to rain here and I’m very glad we have actual seats rather than just sitting on the lawn (not that that’s not fun but not so much when its pouring outside).
Have a great night!
