I started of the morning with a rude wake up call from my little one around 5 am. Luckily she played in her room for awhile, because I had a killer headache.
I got up and felt blah so I had a protein bar for breakfast.
I then went ahead and did my strength training workout, burning 183 calories. I have to figure out how to make sure my polar loop keeps track of my heart rate. It keeps dropping off and if I don’t realize it then it isn’t tracking my workout like it is supposed to.
For lunch I made a simple PB and J with a few almonds. I figured this was a better alternative to wolfing down chocolate and peanut butter truffles.
I then jumped in the shower and was going to rest a few minutes while Olivia napped; however, she had other plans.
She woke up just as I was getting out of the shower and said she wanted her daddy, then curled up in his spot and went back to sleep. Needless to say I wasn’t going to be able to sleep now so I started work on the truffles.
For a snack this afternoon I made a chocolate protein shake to curb the craving to lick my fingers; I stayed strong! I finished the snack of with a cheese stick.
After several hours of chocolate making Tim asked when will you get dinner started….
REALLY my kitchen is the size of a cracker box and I’ve got chocolate, Oreo, peanut butter, and powder sugar everywhere! He rephrased after a death glare and said what can Olivia and I go get for dinner. We had a coupon for a Thai place around the corner from the house so I sent him there.
I don’t want to say I deserve it, because I am trying to avoid that mentality with food. But I cannot think of a better day to have a cheat meal especially since I avoided the chocolate, completed a workout, and overall have made some amazing choices this week.
Chicken pad thai – one of my favorites and it was pretty spicy. I shared some with Olivia, it always amazes me that she handles the spice so well.
I then went back to making more chocolate, ugh! My shoulders are screaming TORTURE after a workout and then being forced to stir batch after batch of chocolate. I now have lots of goodies for the bake sale and some for gifts.
Here are my stats for the day overall:
1546 total calories – 183 workout calories = 1363 net calories
Fat was high 62 g
Carbs were Higher 180 g
Protien was really low 69 g
Tomorrow I have the set up for the bake sale and my day is kind of up in the air at this point. I know I will have a protein shake for breakfast, not sure about lunch yet (maybe subway), and dinner will be a grilled pork tenderloin with sweet potatoes.
