Are you there, blog? It’s me, Andrea. As promised, here are today’s fancy eatings. Ok, not so fancy.
First up, same as yesterday, pumpkin oats.
Same mix as yesterday.
1/3 cup oats
2/3 cup almond milk
1/3 cup pumpkin
1/3 cup cottage cheese
little bit of brown sugar, little bit of pumpkin pie spice
By the way, I am totally lazy and cook my oats in the microwave!
Grabbed a coffee on the way to work, but I’ve decided I’m not going to photograph and post those, because a) they’re just coffee, I never get anything exciting, and b) I literally get the same thing every frigging day. So just imagine me a drinking a grande bold.
For lunch, I had the same thing as yesterday (the crab, avocado, brown rice salad.) But, funny story: lying in bed last night I realized I was all out of lettuce. So I was all DAMN! And then I started thinking of what else I could have for lunch tomorrow, and figuring I’d just grab Subway. But then I thought, “Andrea! Step away from the saltines! You had a plan, now how can you make it work?”
So what I did is I packed all my salad toppings, including the dressing, in a smaller tupperwear, and on the way to work I bought a container of lettuce.
Ok, I guess that story isn’t THAT funny. But I was pleased with myself for how I dealt with the situation.
A quick pic:
Later I snacked on an apple with almond butter. Check this arty shot out:
Looking at this picture makes me want to stick my finger (or a spoon I SUPPOSE) directly into that jar. Mmmmm.
Another unphotographed coffee after this.
This evening I had boot camp, and on boot camp nights I don’t do a real dinner, just two kinda large ‘snacks’. So pre-boot camp I had this delish baked sweet potato topped with salsa.
And I was still a bit hungry, so I had a few dried apricots. ( + 1 or 2 more that didn’t make the photo!)
And after I got home from boot camp (a mere half-hour ago!) I had this little treat:
This was 175 g of plain yogurt (yes, weighed on my scale and everything!), sweetened with 1 tbsp. honey, and topped with some frozen mixed fruit, thawed (mango, peaches, pineapple, and kiwi). And a generous sprinkling of dried coconut.
That’s it guys! Another delicious day!
OH, wait, I promised you an update on my boot camp measurements.
Sooo, according to the scale we use there, I was down 3.4 lbs, which was great. And here are my measurements. This is for 4 weeks.
