What a difference between Tuesday and Wednesday! I had a hard time getting up in the morning. I felt frazzled prepping for the day. I had a major afternoon slump. Then I was so exhausted and didn’t force myself to work out (that was a choice I made and I’m ok with that seeing as my legs are still killing me from Body Pump on Monday).
First, I tried making a Paleo English Muffin in the Microwave from Carrots’N'Cake. Well that was a total flop.
I ate it. It tasted a little strange. She says to “form the dough” and mine was still liquid so I think therein lies the problem. I used the right amount of ingredients but I think my egg was larger. I don’t want to use more almond flour because that stuff is high in calories and can add up quickly! I ate my strange sandwich anyway and called it a breakfast.
Yesterday on my Healthy Holidays Challenge was to try a pomegranate I’ve always loved them so I was excited. I found a recipe on PunchFork using turkey and pomegranates so I was super excited. This was excellent! Turkey Salad with Pomegranate and Pistachios:
I think the shallots would have been better than the red onion though. I was happy with it though!
So yesterday wasn’t so bad, I just felt bad. I think I also was just very hungry because I ate too few calories on Monday and Tuesday. Here are the positives though:
I finished over half of my take home exam.
I ate healthy despite wanting junk food.
I ate just under the number of calories to maintain (not gain!).
I ate mostly Paleo despite wanting junk food.
Did I mention I didn’t eat junk food?
I drank almost all my water.
So pretty good overall. I am mostly glad that I got so much work done on my exam. I also got some other school-related work done throughout the day. Today’s job is to continue working on that exam and start on my Laser’s homework. I also have to meet with my professor. We’ll see what he wants me to concentrate on right now when it comes to research. I’ve also got a fun night out with the girls (Lauren) tonight that I am excited for! I just have to leave right after class. I thought it was tomorrow but luckily she reminded me! Now, off to start my busy day!!
