SparkPeople Meal Plans Day 1 Reflection

Monday, April 22, 2013

I'm going to be honest, I was really nervous to start these. I look at these and I think that it looks like barely any food, especially considering I was just training for a half marathon, so I was eating pretty much anything in sight.

But after just 1 day on these meal plans, I'm actually feeling really good! Usually I have 2 snacks during the day, just because of my schedule, but the meal plans only allow for one, so I had to choose today which time I would rather have my snack, and I chose the afternoon. However, considering when I got hungry after breakfast this morning, vs when I got hungry after lunch, I think I'm going to need to move it to the morning time instead.

My meals today consisted of:

A pre-workout snack of 1/2 Grapefruit.

Breakfast Playlist: Songza 90's One Hit Wonders
1 cup of 365 Peanut Butter Balls cereal, with 1/2 cup unsweetened soy milk
1 cup unsweetened Apple Juice
1 cup coffee, with 1 tsp sugar and 2 tbsp unsweetened soy milk.

Lunch Book: A Feast for Crows by George R. R. Martin
Strawberry Salad (2 cups chopped romaine lettuce, .75 oz walnuts, 10 sliced strawberries, 1 tsp olive oil, 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar.)
Siggi's Strawberry Yogurt
3 seeded Multigrain Crackers

Snack TV Show: Mad Men
2 stalks celery
1.5 tbsp Peanut Butter

Dinner Playlist: Songza Mellow Indie
1/2 Cup Tropical Fruit cocktail
1/2 cup angel hair pasta topped with: 1/2 cup garbanzo beans, 1 small tomato, 1 clove garlic, basil, thyme, salt, pepper, 1 tsp olive oil, and 3 tbsp shredded parmesan cheese.

On the Fitness side of things, I went for my first run today after my half marathon this weekend. I ran for only 1.3 miles, just around my block. But oh boy, I'm definitely still sore. Going to take it VERY easy for the next few days until my legs and feet stop screaming at me!
