Friday recap, and canned sandwiches
Last night was fun at the gym. I ended up speed walking for 25 minutes with a sweatshirt on to get the sweat going and yet keep my heart rate low enough to fall under the "fat burn" rate rather than the "cardio" rate.
Then came Zumba. Had a good time and my heart rate always gets up there. I ended up burning 792 calories at the gym.
Then I came home and K and Penni came over that evening. Before they did, I had a piece of Dietz and Watson bacon lovers sliced turkey. If you have this lunch meat available at your deli counter TRY IT! It is pricey but awesome! You can definitely taste the smokiness of the bacon in it without all the fat. Along with the turkey I had a string cheese stick.
Then when K and Penni came over, I pulled out these chips called "Eat Your Vegetables....One Chip at a Time" (sea salt flavor). They are awesome! You get one full serving of veggies in every ounce. I didnt eat a ton of them, just a couple here or there, and had some water with it. I stayed away from the alcohol (go me!). These chips have navy beans, potatoes, rice flour, sunflower oil, canola oil, carrot, sweet potato, sea salt, onion powder, a smidge of sugar, and garlic powder. They are low in saturated fat and give you that salty taste we sometimes crave. For 13 chips, it is 130 calories, 7 g of fat, 0.5 of sat fat, no trans fat, 0 cholesterol, 140mg sodium, 17g carbs, 3g fiber, 1g sugar, and 3g protein.
If you can find these in your grocery store, check them out too.
And even though I had a bit of snacking, I ended up losing a half pound!! Down to 166.5!! Go me!
Today we have NOTHING going on (thankfully!!) so I can have whatever I want to eat.
Here is my menu for the day:
Breakfast- english muffin with krema peanut butter, dietz and watson bacon lovers turkey, 2 hard boiled eggs
Lunch- celery and scallions and garlic hummus
Dinner- left over whole wheat spaghetti with sauteed mushrooms and onions
Snack will be some pretzels and some jelly belly jelly beans (if I really want some)
And I plan on running on the elliptical tonight for an hour. I want to take a little break today from zumba and instead hit the cardio and some light weights. Tomorrow will be back to zumba again.
OHHHHH I forgot to tell you...
Yesterday Penni came over and we took crazy pictures of me for her new satire piece that she wrote for Rant Political Online. You HAVE to read this story if you want a good laugh about the apocalypse and canned sandwiches. Here is the link to the story:
I had to be the crazy woman for her. I put my hair up in velcro rollers and went heavy on the makeup. LOL. It was fun. And I think she is going to use me for every story so it will be a funny running gag. Same person in the picture but different names for each person. LOL.
That is the news for now! Have a great day!
