Weekend Fail..

I feel awful because Friday, Saturday and Sunday I didn't workout at all, or eat very well either. Sunday was really bad I had: cornbread (150) , ice cream (150), cookies (450) then topped it with cheese and crackers (400) and a small piece of carrot cake (150) . I had all this plus 2 cups of my soup (400)  for the whole day (1700 calories is my guestimate). It wasn't very bad calorie-wise but it was very bad because I consumed too much sugar and fats for the day and my I hardly had any protein for the day.  The only saving grace I had is that I finally made my black bean veggie soup so I have a healthy, prepared meal that I can pack to work for at least a week.

I've been doing much better today
Breakfast
1/2 tomato and pesto sandwich on Whole Wheat bread
1 cup of my black bean veggie soup
2oz of baked tilapia

Snack
1 cup of hazelnut coffee with 1/4 c skim milk + 1 packet sugar in the raw + 2 splenda packets
1 sour cream cookie

Lunch
I have 2 cups of my soup + 2oz of tilapia shredded into it. that I will eat when I get hungry while studying..

I WILL be working out later this evening..

cornbread is so evil. i am just now getting to where i don't have to have it when it's around. i got stuck on fritos like that once. (something about corn-based food??)

but sunday is now the past. you are doing the most and best you can do now, which is looking forward and thinking ahead! go you!

and that soup sounds awesome.

here's wishing you a fab workout!

Thanks Josie! I think it is something about the corn. I get stuck on tortilla chips, BAD! I just really wanted a hunk of sweet cornbread to eat with the soup I made. It tastes very similar to chili

That's the recipe that mine is based off of, I found it about 2 years ago and I've been making it ever since. Its very very tasty as is..but you know I've gotta tinker.

lol. you know, i really think it wouldn't be that tough for me to be a lacto-ovo vegetarian. but then i think, what's the point? i do like chicken and seafoods a lot. and you can't beat protein and veggies when you want a really healthy and filling meal.
