I went to be so full last night and I’m not sure why. I had a great run yesterday morning (4.5 miles on the treadmill) then had the following calories throughout the day…
- 1 cup Cherrios with blueberries and milk – 150 calories
- 1 tall skinny vanilla latte – 90 calories
- 1 1/2 cups minestrone soup with a small breadstick – 300 calories
- 3 mini snickers – 120
- 1 Luna Bar – 180
- 3 small pieces of cheese pizza – 400
- Total Calories = 1,240 (give or take 100 calories)
That’s more than 300 calories less than what I was aiming for – 1,600 calories per day. The only thing I can think of is that the pizza (albeit small squares) made me super full because of the cheese…
Hmm..still puzzling to me. Anyway, this morning when I woke up, I was STILL full. I usually don’t like like to eat when I’m full. However, we have a very busy morning (and day) planned. I opted for a small breakfast of about 4 oz of nonfat vanilla Greek yogurt with a teaspoon of peanut butter…
Plus about 1 teaspoon of walnuts on top for added crunch and MUFA…
So total, I probably had about 200 calories for breakfast. Now, I’m incredibly full.
The rest of the day is booked – haircuts (not mine), cleaning, shopping, and other errands. With so much running around, maybe I’ll feel hungry by dinnertime!
Gotta run – have a great day!
