A delayed post
I don’t know what was up with my appetite yesterday, but I was not hungry at all. So I apologize for the lack of dinner pics (I did finally eat dinner around 9:30, but it was just 2 bowls of cereal and I forgot to take a picture).
After my classes, I split a PB&J Larabar with Dan, and we took off for the library and Trader Joe’s.
We biked 2.7 miles to the library to pick up some books, then 3.3 to Trader Joe’s, then home.
I’ve been trying to do meal planning to cut back on grocery costs. Money-wise, it seems to be working. However, I’ve overplanned, and now have ingredients for three meals that I still haven’t made! So I’m making those this week, and therefore only had to buy about 5 things at Trader Joe’s… 🙂
For some reason, I wasn’t hungry for lunch until 3:45 or so. I had a little bit of plain greek yogurt left, so I mixed it with some olive oil, lemon juice, and a little bit of dill weed to make my own tzatziki dip. I wasn’t a huge fan of the dip, but it was worth a shot.
An Ezekial whole wheat pita with spinach hummus, carrots and zucchini. And while I liked the taste of the pita, it kept falling apart on me. Maybe I just got a bad one?
More carrots and zucchini on the side.
I decided to make PB & Chocolate Chip cookies for Dan, since he ran so many errands for me this week!
I’d be lying if I said that 2… okay, 3… of these didn’t end up in my mouth when they came out of the oven. I had to make sure they tasted good before I gave them to Dan, right? 😉
In an effort to ramp up my flagging appetite, I did another 10.0 miles on my bike.
Distance: 10.0 miles
Time: 36:27 minutes
I topped it all off with some upper body strength training, at which point I was FINALLY hungry. I had two bowls of Basic 4 + Strawberry Yogurt Burst Cheerios + Raisin Oatmeal Crunch with skim milk.
This morning, I got up early to meet Kim at the Farmer’s Market. On my way out the door, I grabbed one of my PB Granola bars to eat on the way. Yum!
I’m spreading out my lunch/snacks today so that I have things to much on while I study. First up, this delicious bowl of Oikos, golden raspberries, a touch of honey, and a few tablespoons of granola…
A HUGE thank you to Kath’s post for helping me discover the Digital Macro setting on my camera — my food pictures will look so much better now! I knew not to use a flash, but the pictures were still looking blurry. The pic above was taken on Digital Macro. Compare that to this:
And you can see how much of a difference it makes!
Off to study… yay?
