I am so amazed at the outpouring of love and support with regards to yesterday’s post. Thank you to those of you who commented, sent me emails, sent me FB messages, or even just took the time to read my story. It really means the world. Seriously, if you have questions, concerns, or you just want to talk, email at [carly dot goldstein at yahoo dot com].
Well, because yesterday’s post was so heavy, today’s will be nice and easy. Just lots of pictures of food. Which, by the way, is simultaneously my favorite thing in the world and the bane of my existence. Is anything worse than seeing pictures of delicious-looking food when you’re so starving that you’d eat your own arm?
My point is that you should definitely grab a snack or two before scrolling down. I’ll wait for you…
You back? Good. Let’s get started.
My Wednesday morning started off with a repeat breakfast. Plain Fage, Cinnamon Kashi, and strawberries.
I had a pizza bagel for lunch. Childhood throwback, whaaaaat?! Yep, a TJ’s Sprouted Wheat Bagel with 2 TBSP tomato sauce and mozzarella cheese.
I had green bean fries + ketchup for a snack before my second class of the day. Yeah, definitely not filling. Like, not at all. I had to buy a Special K Protein Meal Bar before my workout. And thank goodness I did, because it was a BEAST of a workout. (Side note: WHY do I always type of “breast” when I want to write “beast.” Seriously, this happens all the time.)
The workout included 30 sweaty minutes on the ARC Trainer + an hour-long spin class. I forgot how much I like spinning! I so wish that it was socially acceptable to bust out singing during group exercise classes. The music was seriously rockin’ and I really had to contain myself.
Once home, the nighttime eating commenced. Dinner was a La Tortilla Factory Wheat Tortilla, a quarter of an avocado, a half-cup of black beans, some taco seasoning, and salsa. This burrito was, for lack of a better word, buttery. I think it was the fat from the avocado and the black beans. So creamy! It was definitely the highlight meal of my day. I think a sweaty jockstrap would have tasted amazing at that point, though. I was so frickin’ hungry.
And now that I’ve talked about sweaty jockstraps, let me show you pictures of my dinner. So appetizing!
I ate this baby with some raw veg on the side.
“Dessert” was two ounces of turkey, a quarter cup of peanuts, and an apple.
Nope, still not full. I then had a tangerine popsicle.
And then I pretty much snacked for the rest of the night. I was just so starving! That workout really revved my metabolism. (Or I was just feeling snacky.) I think I had some more peanuts, a little bowl of cereal, and a small piece of homemade pizza (no crust!) leftover from the weekend. Finally, I was full enough to get to bed.
Okay, now I need to get back to watching 1600 Penn. Somebody’s being rrrrreallllll productive before finals week. Would you believe it if I told you I was just saving up my energy?
Nope, I wouldn’t believe it either.
