Today was fish day at school and we blackened snapper fillets and pan seared salmon…so I ate! I love seafood as many of you know! I also ate because I prepared everything myself…all the way from filleting the snapper when it looked like it was straight out of the water! We used a really good homemade blackening spice that Chef had prepared and I brought in the rest of my cornbread rolls from last night for everyone to try. The bad thing was that while I was filleting the snapper I cut my finger pretty bad through the gloves I had one. Now it’s all wrapped up :(. I’m doing some cleaning around here this afternoon then heading off to a 4:00 ashtanga yoga class. Then back here to make dinner and do homework–only two days of school left!
My lunch was incredibly light today because we were only given 3 ounces of salmon to sear and I only took about 1 1/2-2 ounces of blackened snapper on my plate. Those, with a cornbread roll, and an orange I ate when I got home only added up to be about 300 calories, which is much less than I like to eat at lunchtime.
This little guy right here turned into my lunch! (cutting my finger in the process)
So…I will be having a big snack before yoga in a few hours and I’m already a little hungry now! I’m not trying to skimp on any calories right now–I’m mindful of them of course—but I’m not lowering them or anything like that because for some odd reason my scale says that last week I lost 4 pounds! I’m not trying to lose weight and like to keep my weight up around 120-123 pounds…I think 116 is too low for me, which is what the scale said yesterday. Weird because I really have not been doing anything different with my eating and exercise! Maybe something was amiss with the scale. Very odd.
