Half & Half
Yesterday was the first day in 836 days that I didn't track a single calorie. I decided to reward myself by skipping the scale (Weighing in daily never does any good..) and treating myself to a cappuccino, with 2tbsps FF Half & Half instead of almond milk. I'm not even a half and half type girl, but I needed to test the waters with my new Nespresso machine to see if it made a more frothy cappuccino. Verdict? Not a major difference and a waste of 3 (whole) carbs.
Since quarantine, I've been loving Peloton spin classes and The Sculpt Society app but decided to reincorporate Melissa Wood Health workouts to see if I can finally get an AB or two. I still have all 3 apps, but I don't see a change in any part of my body. When Aspen was 1-2 years old I never worked out, ate like crap and still had definition that is now no where to be seen. As much as I want ABS, I haven't caved to starting the "Chloe Ting challenge" that my 2 teenage sisters are doing daily and introduced me too, or downloading the SWEAT app again which brings me back to BURPEE nightmares. But with that all said, it's important that I find a new routine given that there's no CAMP this summer or KIDS CLUB at Equinox which I'm PISSED about...especially when I'm paying $200+ a month for membership.
For Breakfast I was craving veggies but knew I would have FOMO if I stuck to a plain omelette. I decided to nibble on mushrooms/tomatoes while making F-Factor waffles
F-Factor waffles with 1 tbsp of Choczero maple syrup
Tomatoes and mushrooms (sautéed)
Thoughts: I definitely regret "spending" 3 carbs on half and half. Won't be making that mistake again. Breakfast was delicious and I'm hoping that it keeps me full into the afternoon like yesterday.
Italian pasta salad made with: Zoodles, iceberg, arugula, tomatoes, carrots, red pepper and tuna. Topped with 3 TBSP FF Italian dressing and 1 tbsp parmesan.
Seaweed on the side
Thoughts: The good news is that breakfast kept me full for 5+ hours. The bad news is that whenever I go this long between meals I always binge. The salad was so delicious that I went in for seconds...
Fage 0% yogurt
Savory Crepini Egg thins with burnt green beans and Truffle cauliflower
Thoughts: Dinner was a little bit of everything thrown together. The green beans were so delicious and definitely a new favorite!
