3-19-10 A day in my life

Most days I have these grand intentions of taking photos of all my food and posting on everything I ate and did that day.  Well, it rarely comes to fruition because at the end of the day I'm tired and the thought of writing a huge post with pictures and everything is just exhausting...so I don't. So I'm going to try it this way, I'll start a post now and update it all day long.  That way I only have to write a little bit and post a picture or two at a time. So here goes, a day in my life:

My day began with a workout.

At this point the workout room is doing double duty as the storage room for unpacked boxes. We are slowly getting them unpacked but we still have a ways to go. Luckily the elliptical is accessible and so my workout of choice at the moment.

Once I'm done with the workout I'm usually hungry and have breakfast right away.  I have found the world's greatest breakfast:

This is oatmeal with almond milk and protein powder which I top with 1/2 a container of Fage yogurt with honey. To die for. I also usually have 1/2 an apple. It is so good and filling and only 310 calories. Awesome!! After eating this I am generally good for 3-4 hours. Next up, lunch....

For lunch I've come up with this delicious wrap:

Start with Laughing Cow and hummus:

Next, I smoosh them together to make a spread:

Then I spread them on a Flat Out bread, add some turkey breast, and veggies:

Roll it up and add some Kalamata olives:

And I have just about the perfect lunch. It comes it at around 275 calories and is just awesome. It is quite filling.

For the rest of the day I forgot to photograph my food but I had some soy beans around 4 pm for a snack. Dinner was hamburger stew curry over rice and I did have a piece of cake for dessert. I figure that my whole day came in around 1700-1800 calories for the day. For every meal I was no longer hungry but not full. Even the cake didn't fill me up. So this day was definitely a success.
