Yesterday was a full day- yoga, business meetings and clients, but I managed to do a pretty good job of sticking to healthy eats. Somehow that pesky bagel managed to sneak it’s way in though. Baby wants CARBS!
I started the day with a some delicious well-roundedness. 1 egg + 1 egg white omelet with spinach. Side of organic wheat toast with 1 Tbsp JIF Natural Peanut Butter and a handful of the delicious organic berries from my CSA box.
I’m becoming proud to show off my belly- can you tell? I find it funny that when I started doing prenatal yoga around 8 weeks, I found it relaxing, like a good long stretch. Now I’m noticing how much more challenging it is becoming. Lift my leg up to 3 point dog again?? Really?? Love it though
Mini Meal #1
Instead of lunch, my day consisted of many mini-meals. I met the wonderful ladies of Zabels Cookies for a quick meeting. I’m reviewing their delicious cookie bites for The Charlotte Moms and couldn’t resist diving right into one of their fabulous cookie sandwiches!
Before leaving the house I also grabbed our Indian leftovers from last night. The Channa Masala was just as spicy and delicious the next day!
Mini Meal #2
When I finally arrived home, I was ready to eat again, so I whipped up a salad full of my CSA greens, a tiny bit of leftover grilled chicken, an entire tomato and a drizzle of Newman’s. I sipped on my first La Croix of the day… I’m obsessed, I tell ya.
Mini Meal #3
A 2% Chobani Mango – which is delicious, but not quite up to black cherry standards- with 1/4 cup of Quaker Natural Granola. I could chow down on the granola by the handful, but it’s incredibly calorie dense, so I watch my portions.
I was excited to try out Lindsay’s stuffed chicken recipe for dinner- YUM. I used a different method and beat my chicken flat, then folded in the goat cheese mixture instead of attempting to cut slits in the chicken… which I knew I wasn’t talented enough to accomplish.
Served with a baked sweet potato and another CSA salad, with greens, strawberries, feta and a drizzle of Newman’s.
Without even logging it, my body subconsciously knew I hadn’t eaten enough during the day, so hunger kicked in during the evening, and I could resist. BAGEL!!! Give me a BAGEL!!!
A few crackers found their way into my stomach, too, along with my Juice Plus gummies.
Thoughts? That pesky sodium! Not too bad, but not great. And I think I just need to embrace my love for bagels. The more I fight it, the more my love grows stronger
Have you ever tried to give up a food, but finally given in and decided to keep it around?
I don’t think my love for bagels will be dwindling anytime soon!
