I feel a TON better this morning. Of course last night I couldn’t fall asleep but once I did I slept really well and woke up just before my alarm was to go off this morning. Sometimes when I’m over-tired my body sends me little signs to slow down—my throat starts to hurt, my body starts to ache….that’s when I know I need to give it some rest. Anyways, rest I did and this morning I woke up and hit the treadmill at the gym for a 20 minute run. When I got back I made a smoothie using the other half of my banana, soymilk, 1 tbsp ground flax and frozen mango, peaches and strawberries. I also toasted up and english muffin which I spread with raspberry jam.
I got some new soup that I haven’t tried at the store last week. This Amy’s low fat split pea. It seems pretty good and is remarkably low in calories. I looked at the nutritional label and it said the entire can was only 200 calories! I always eat the whole can of soup anyways but because it was so low I decided to bulk up my lunch a little, adding a side of hummus (2 tbsp) with a carrot and half a bell pepper as well as a small baggie of blue corn chips and a peach. For a snack I packed a bag stuffed with cherries. I like lunches like this because if I can mix and match things a little bit. If I don’t feel like my hummus at lunch I can save it for a snack or if I feel like the cherries for lunch I can save the peach and some tortilla chips for a snack.
And lastly……..I’M SEEING SEX AND THE CITY TOMORROW NIGHT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I’m SO excited. I’ve seen every single episode ever and start to tear up every time the preview comes on! I don’t think I’ve ever been so excited to see a movie…!
