So we indulged a little bit extra over the weekend on some sugar & carbs!! I definitely had a junk food hangover this morning so it felt extra good to get back on track with my menu plan for the week.
Saw this on HRG today and laughed. So true.
Ate some bacon & eggs for breakfast because that’s what we do. Plus some of my favorite unsweetened Starbucks iced coffee with organic heavy whipping cream.
And then I had some make-up homework to do that I was dreading. I got lazy over the weekend and didn’t do my assigned rowing meters for the challenge. That meant double today.
Rowed a 10k — 2 entire episodes of Friends!!
It took me 50:45. I was actually working the whole time (except a few drinks and a few times moving the rower when it scooted), but it’s still a mediocre time. I actually did a 14k on Valentine’s Day at a 2:26 (6 seconds faster) pace. Ah, well. I am pregnant after all. Going downhill on everything just sucks sometimes.
Lunch part 1: Leftover grilled pork, sweet potato, and apple. This was tooooo small, and I ate part 2 right away.
This is a new thing I’m trying this week. That’s unsweetened organic full fat yogurt with organic berries and (plain) Justin’s almond butter. I was afraid it was going to be super sour and bland, but it grew on me. Maybe I was just starving. But I’ll be eating it all week since that’s what I have for a snack so we shall see. I went easy on the almond butter because I’m not the hugest omgnutbutterfan plus I wasn’t sure how it would mix in (it magically melted right in somehow).
So I mention these things all the time, but I love the Hoppin’ Jalapeño Chomps. I think we bought 50 last time I ordered them, and we both eat them almost every day.
I’ve been trying to cut back on Larabars — they have a good bit of sugar, and they’re expensive. So I only got two for this week. Well, I already ate one so I’d better hoard the other.
Taking pics of my Starbucks like any good white girl would.
This is totally unusual, but I had a skinny vanilla latte during the middle of the day. Kevin came home early from work because we had a repairman coming to our house to work on the garage door so we decided it would be fun to go on a little date before CrossFit.
I scored 36, 43, & 44. And those reps were mostly BURPEES!!! My hips were super tight from that 10k row, and I didn’t have enough time to practice so the first round of pistol squats was pretty ugly. I did some decent reps and some sketchy reps, but I improved as I got warmer. So thankful for a shorter workout today. :)
Paleo Lasagna Soup with Zoodles. Topped with fresh basil & parmesan cheese. I sort of followed that recipe, but I also used some ground turkey mixed with the hot Italian sausage and sort of doubled the recipe overall. By the way, the recipe was GREAT. Kevin really loved it too.
And Dark Chocolate minis!! Because I’ve read in two books that eating dark chocolate makes your baby smile more after its born and have a happier disposition overall. Just kidding. I ate it because I like it.
So I ate around 1829 calories which is a little lower than what I’d probably like to see especially with all the rowing!! But I must still be a little full from the weekend.
Here’s what my percentages looked like. I’m obviously not dieting in any, way, shape or form while I’m pregnant, but I occasionally track my intake to help myself be realistic about things like sugar intake and make sure I’m eating a solid amount of protein.
I’m sure this post REALLY brightened your day. So why not check out THESE AWESOME PICS from the dogs’ swim day.
What did you eat today? What would you eat EVERY day if you could/it was a good decision for your health? I would eat mac ‘n’ cheese and Diet Coke every day if I could. Maybe flamin’ hot cheetos and black licorice candies too. And that’s not even the pregnancy talking. :)
