Hey girls! So today is, well, eh. It's alright. Intake was pretty good, but outtake was virtually nothing. I was sooooo tired I ended up going back to bed at 9 a.m. (got up at 6:30 this morning) and somehow slept until three "/
I'm not too upset about it, because this is the last summer I CAN sleep all day if I choose to (I start college AND work in the fall so I'll be busy all day), but that late is a little excessive. I've just been sooo tired this week. Maybe I'm low on something?
I need to remember to take my vitamins (haven't all week, and I always drag when I forget to take them, just not usually this much). And I wanted to ask you ladies, anyone know of any (natural) foods that are really good for energy?
Superfood Smoothie - 215 cals
1 piece of light string cheese - 60 cals
Apple w/ 2 tbsp peanut butter- 340 cals
NUT-Trition Heart Healthy Mix -170 cals
Sugar free Lemon-Lime jello cup - 10 cals
??? - <650 cals
94% Fat Free Popcorn - 120 cals
Total Intake: 1565 Calories
Couch-2-5k - 86 cals burned
Total Burned: 86 Calories
Yeah, not sure what I'm having for dinner yet but it'll be 650 or less calories.
Exercise was just blah. I know I should have done more. However, I was so exhausted I was barely even able to do that, so I'm glad I at least did my C25K. I was starting to talk myself out of it; 'you're too tired, you'll do it tomorrow' etc., but I just said fuck it and went and did it.
Will do more exercise next week, for sure. But at least I worked out every day this week so far :)
By the way, the smoothie was, well, alright. It wasn't real tasty, but it wasn't bad either. However, it's got some of the best ingredients in it. Recipe time!
- 1/4-1/2 cup water
- 1/2 cup blueberries (fresh or frozen) - has TONS of antioxidants!
- 1 banana - fiber, potassium, delicious!
- 1 cup kale - everything. period.
I also added a slice of pineapple for taste.
All together the nutrition facts are 215 calories, and the following daily totals:
and 183% Vitamin C
So it's pretty damn good for you. However, it's only downfall is it only has about 4 grams of protein, so you can either have it with something high in protein (like string cheese) or just add a little protein powder. As it is though, it's still very nutritious, and completely vegan, not to mention it doesn't taste too shabby. Would definitely recommend it!
Yeah, apparently kale is a superfood. It has iron, calcium, a SHIT LOAD of vitamin C (134% per cup), a ton of fiber, vitamin K, antioxidants, and even a little protein. Oh yeah.
^^ not my mom lol
Also, my mom is doing so well! She's lost 15 pounds so far :) She isn't really actively dieting or anything, just watching her portions. And she's on her feet for 8-10 hours a day at work, so that's enough of a workout by itself. She wants to lose 15 more, so she's halfway there! Our UGW is about the same (mine's 158, hers is 150-160 [she just wants to wear her skinny pants again]), so we'll finally be able to share jeans again lol!
Yeah I weigh-in tomorrow. Nerrrrrrvous. As weird as this sounds, I don't feel any lighter this week. I normally do, but this week I don't. I haven't done too bad though, (stayed under 1800 calories and worked out every day) so we'll see.
That is all. Will comment everyone back tomorrow. Peace ladies :)
P.S. Have the strangest craving for banana peppers....
I love having healthy cravings. :)
