What I Ate Wednesday

I haven't done this in a while so I thought I would today. I forgot to take pictures though, so most it will be in summary form. If I happen to remember to take a picture of dinner, I'll be sure to add that to the post!

Breakfast - Black coffee, water with a Crystal Light On the Go packet, four egg whites and one whole egg scrambled with four asparagus spears, a cup of baby spinach, a quarter cup of diced baby bellas, and two pieces of turkey bacon.  Super yummy, big, and filling!

Snack/Meal Two - Chobani blueberry yogurt (I wasn't very hungry).

Lunch - A half cup of homemade chicken salad with some Blue Diamond Almond Thins crackers (nut and rice).

Snack/Meal Four - Salad. I mixed together two cups of a bagged salad mix, three ounces of grilled chicken breast, a few sugar snap peas, and topped with with a light raspberry walnut vinaigrette.

Dinner - Left over turkey burger (bunless) with ketchup and mustard, green beans sauteed with garlic and pancetta, and a brown rice and quinoa blend. 

That's a lot of food for under 1500 calories!! To me, eating all of that sounds like a much better option than one fast food meal for the same results (if not worse!).

Because I'm under my goal I will most likely have a little snack to put me just over goal, or around 1600 calories. I will do this because I intend to workout and I know that I'll burn somewhere between 300 and 500 calories with my workout added in. I really try to keep my net daily calories taken in above 1200, but under my daily calorie goal of 1500.  I may snack on some meat and cheese or make a protein shake at some point this evening...I feel that the protein shake would be a better option (and sounds really yummy on a hot day after a workout!) but will probably be more calories. I guess I'll see where I'm at when I'm done with my workout and go from there... It will also depend on whether it cools off enough to take the dogs for a walk later (I'll burn more calories doing that, obviously).
