What has been annoying so far is the fact that I have to prepare food in the mornings. I am not a morning person, so this has made me a little late for work. Thankfully, no one seems to care, so long as I stay my whole 8 hours.(Or leave after everyone else does, which is typically the case, lol)
Yesterday's lunch followed all the rules, but one. I made myself a spinach salad with avocado, guacamole(the one I made- just a dollop), cucumbers, pecans, sunflower seeds, almond slices, and pumpkin seeds. The cheating part is where I added my favourite fig balsamic dressing, which contains sugar. I knew that I could have easily prepared myself a dressing without sugar, but, I wanted that flavour. So I shook it all up in a tupperware, and indulged. I made sure to have my probiotic.
After work I went to the mall to get my vitamins, then went to the gym. After warming up on the bike, I focused primarily on my upper body with three reps of each of the following: bench press with free weights(2 15 lbs), bicep curls (15 lbs again), dips on the machine(my weight minus 60lbs-whatever that is), and back pulls on the machine(45 lbs). I also did a bit of legwork, with leg curls on the machine (70 lbs), then hamstring curls on a large workout ball. It was an overall lazy-ish workout, because my friend and I were both hungry. No kidding what with salad for lunch.
For dinner, I'd marinated some rock sole in some balsamic, olive oil, and lemon juice. I pan-fried it. The package said to fry it for 2-3 minutes per side. Because it was dark from the balsamic, I couldn't really see if it was cooked. I didn't trust the package(I should have). I cooked it too long. It was definitely not the texture that I would have liked. Much too dry. On the side I fried up some zucchini in butter(salted shh). I also had some guacamole, and ate each bite of fish with it, since the fish was dry. I also had another probiotic, but didn't get around to opening up my vitamin powders. I felt unsatisfied from that dinner.
Later that evening, I finished my red pepper hummus. The one that's not really allowed, but that should be. I ate it alone. So weird the things you do when you're restricted. I didn't feel like cutting veggies to go with it, so I used
