Today's Eats....


I realized that I hardly post food pics so I decided to give you guys a feel of what I eat. I'm on some medication today so I'm actually eating more than I usually do. Thank God I managed to exercise this morning to balance out my food.

Breakfast:

I never thought that I would be a fan of almond milk but, when I finally tried it with cereal I totally loved it. I use the unsweetened version which has 40 calories in each serving of 240ml. How awesome is that? It even has less calories than skimmed milk which is 80 calories per 250ml. I had it with Fit & Active Vanilla Almond cereal. Have any of you tried it? You should. Calorie-wise it is around the same value as Special K for a cup.

Breakfast: 343 calories (2 cups cereal + 300ml almond milk)

I almost forgot to show you how it looks out of the box. See the little almond pieces? I love cereal that has nuts and fruits (It is no wonder that I'm a huge fan of muesli ;)) 


Lunch:
My yummy lunch (Chicken breast, spaghetti and mixed vegetables)

I love stir-fries. I can eat any vegetable you put on my plate if it is stir-fried with the right spices. Today's lunch is a simple Chicken, mixed vegetable and spaghetti stir-fry. It had green beans, carrots, sweet corn, green peas and cabbage). Does that look like a lot of food? Guess what? That's 548 calories only.

Like I said, spices makes it possible for me to eat any vegetable. I however an careful not to do the sodium bit. See the main additions to the meal.

Spices + Olive oil cooking spray


 I still haven't decided on what I'm having for supper. It may be a sandwich with some tea or a smoothie.  

How about you folks? What are you eating today?

September Squat Challenge...


I started the squat challenge yesterday with 50 squats and I must say that my heart was beating like crazy after I was done. I try as much as possible to do these workouts in the mornings because knowing the kind of person I am, the probability of me not working out later in the day is quite on the high side.



Anyways, this morning I did the 55 squats that Day 2 requires. I'm feeling really good about this. I hope that I notice some changes in my thighs by the end of this challenge. 

On other matters, I am still journaling at MyFitnessPal (user name ameryati for anyone who wants to add me). I think it's become a habit now :).
