What was I thinking???

My morning started out as usual…

Green Monster

But instead of this in my coffee

6 grams of sugar per tbs

I used this…

0 grams of sugar per tbs and a drop or two

Switching up wasn’t that bad.  Actually I hardly noticed it.  I drink flavored coffee so I’m still getting flavor, and honestly using the flavored cream didn’t do too much for me since I only used a tbs in my coffee.

I did my 30 day shred workout and my couch to 5k run this morning, and after that had my midmorning snack.

Plain yogurt, 1/2 banana, and 1/4 cup glazed walnuts

So the other day I was at the grocery store and I was trying to be a little frugal.  I passed up the greek yogurt and just got regular plain yogurt.  What was I thinking???  The minute I was scooping the yogurt into my bowl I knew my decision was a fail.  I will spend the few extra dollars and get greek yogurt from now on.  I’m spoiled by my creamy greek yogurt.

For lunch.. I tried out a new product from Flat Out.

Artisan Flat Bread

I cut up some veggies…

I mixed in with some chicken and mustard.

I heated up Green Giant‘s vegetable medley in the microwave and lunch was served.  Quick and easy.

I’m one of those types who can’t just eat a sandwich.  I always have to have a side… fruit, veggies, salad, and yes maybe even chips.  I’ve been trying to stay away from the chips so figured that some veggies and potatoes would be a better choice.  Anyone else out there that feels incomplete with just a sandwich??

The rest of my snacks for the day are

cantaloupe, peanut butter chocolate chip hummus with pita chips, and a mousse temptation

Dinner is up in the air.  Well, my coworker is bringing in something she made and though it should make me nervous since I don’t know the calories in what she has made, I feel okay about it.  I know that I ate right and exercised today.  I did what I was supposed to do and I’m sure whatever she makes won’t be too bad for me.  I never pass up a meal I don’t have to make 🙂

    I usually feel incomplete with just a sandwich too. Sometimes I will have fruit with it. Or I will have some chips and salsa. I have to make sure and stop at one serving though. Chips are so addictive!

    I totally cant do just a sandwich, I need some veggies or fruit or chips or a salad or something with it.
    As for the yogurt fail, I am with you on that, I had a “regular” yogurt after having greek (chobani in particular) for so long and it just was not as good. I think the amount of protein in it is worth the extra money. Plus I think it is just better for me. It seems less sugary and more satisfying.

    I didn’t know how much of a difference greek yogurt made until I tried making reverse switch. It was baffling, really. Regardless, it’s hard to know until you do it!

    p.s. TOTALLY agree with you about the sandwiches!

    Hi Kristi!!! I’m super behind on blog reading –

    I love the idea of hummus in a wrap, I’ve never done that before. I love the flat out wraps – so many things you can do with them

    Have a super day!
