I had lots of work to do today that kept me busy at work. It was nice! My work comes in waves, usually, so some days are really busy and others are much slower. The day goes by faster when I have more to do!
Today’s lunch was a lesson in volumetrics (eating a whole lot of really low calorie foods instead of a small amount of calorie-dense foods).
Check out that spread!
I don’t usually do calorie breakdowns, but this was pretty magnificent.
- Spinach: about 20 calories
- Carrots: about 15 calories
- 1 T. Lighthouse dressing: 20 calories
- 2 clementines: 70 calories
- Chicken noodle soup: 150 calories
- Chobani Greek yogurt: 120 calories
- Strawberries: 35 calories
- Homemade corn muffin: 100 calories
530 calories for a huge, healthy, filling lunch that took FOREVER to eat.
After work I went for a run. It wasn’t my best run, but not my worst either. I did 4.5 miles in about 45:30. I slowed my pace down a bit because my asthma was bugging me a bit. My allergies have been bad lately, and I’ve had an off-and-on sinus headache for the last few days, so it’s not totally out of the blue. But I got it done, anyway.
Then, on the way home, I had to stop at the store. I tried the Western Bagel brand of bagels, but I find the “sweet wheat” flavor a little weird. Since they’re high in fiber and low in calories and have good ingredient list, I picked up the country white to try.
I’ll report back!
Anyway, I’m super tired and still have a million things to do before bed. Sigh.
Are you a volume eater or a calorie-dense eater?
