Snowy Day makes me want to eat comfort food!
Friday, February 01, 2008
Digging my car out of ten inches of snow and navigating through unplowed streets really made me crabby and craving comforting carbs. I really wanted a Dunkin Donuts bagel, and there's a DD less than a block from my house, but I checked the calorie content - yeah, at least 350 calories for a bagel BEFORE cream cheese. So I made myself wait for my usual breakfast which I know is very satisfying and sets me up for a healthy day.
I was too late to go to the pool this morning, and I am guessing it was closed anyway. I thought about just giving up on working out today, but I did my strength training! Woo. It used to be that S.T. was the first one to go when my schedule was off. But I'm seeing so many results from it that I don't want to give up a day just because I'm not doing any cardio today. I'm okay skipping cardio for today because I'm already over the minutes for the week, and have burned twice as many calories as my plan recommends.
I have Lean Cuisine Ravioli for lunch that I will add some mixed veggies to to round it out. Or should I have Healthy Request Clam Chowder.....mmmm good on a snow day! I don't know. Either way I'll add the veggies.
I did the Dominicks Salad bar last night, and it was pretty disappointing. It was just basic veggies, and the extras were all fatty salads like egg salad, tuna salad, etc. I am excited to go to Whole Foods soon and get the marinated tofu, yum.
Ok, I'm going to go plan my meals for the weekend.
