I’ve had an exam ALL day today! Apparently concentrating and thinking really hard makes you hungry because I was both exhausted and hungry when I got home! I’m a little bit worried about the amount of food I consumed this evening but I’m trying to let it pass as my “Saturday treat” and not beat myself up about it. Truth be told, I’m a little bit worried about the amount of “treats” I have been consuming in general lately…
I got up early and had a power breakfast before the exam.
6:55am Breakfast. I topped my bowl of fruit (apple, kiwi and berries) with some blueberries today for brain power. I also had two rice cakes with a smudge of hummus.
1pm Lunch. I packed a lunch and snacks last night. I had a salad (carrot, tomato, lettuce, white beans) and brought along some hummus to mix in as a “dressing”. I had two Miso rice cakes on the side. I ate the apple as a snack during one of the breaks in the AM and I never ended up eating the fruitus bar.
I bought this Amy’s wrap AGES ago and it’s been sitting in my freezer. I finally made it today.
5:10pm Dinner. I made another salad that was exactly the same as lunch (minus the hummus) and warmed the wrap. The wrap was SUPER good!
Dessert. I didn’t really feel like dessert when I had finished dinner but I wanted something, so I had two slices of my carrot raisin bread topped with raw coconut chocolate spread.
However… a couple of hours later, I was totally feeling dessert and went haywire. Bordering on a binge but I managed to control myself and didn’t go completely insane. I’m going to be honest with you though and tell you everything I ate. I didn’t manage to photograph everything but I did snap some of the stuff. First, I had one of my leftover raspberry oatmeal creme pies that was in the fridge (sorry, no pic). Then I moved on to this:
A mini-bowl of my raw cashew chocolate ice cream topped with a couple of vegan carob chips. And an oatmeal cookie with raw coconut chocolate spread.
Then I got the “brilliant” idea to make peanut butter frosting for my oatmeal cookies and proceeded to make such a big batch that I had two of these (above) and used the last of the frosting to top the last piece of my carrot raisin bread (sorry, no pic).
And I had all of my dessert without measuring anything so I’m guesstimating the calories…
Total calories today: ~1 800 – 2 000 kcal?
(After my first little dessert of carrot raisin bread with choc spread I was at 1 017 kcal, that’s where I stopped counting).
15 minutes powerwalking
60 side crunches
Way too little exercise today. Partly because I’ve been sitting in a classroom almost all day, but also because the snow came down again yesterday and it’s super cold. It’s Bikram yoga tomorrow morning though (YAY!), but I’m worried about feeling sick again because of all the junk I’ve eaten this evening. Bleh.
