Absolutely LOVED the analogy in the devotional this morning…how true, right?!
1/3 C. old-fashioned oats
1 mashed banana
1/4 C. peanut flour
1/2 pack of raisins
Kid you not, I could eat this everyday, all day 🙂
I realized when I got to work that I felt totally achy and beat up. I’m not sure if it was because of the game the night before or what, but my neck, back, and shoulders were killing me. I got a dead-leg in the game, and every time I took a step on my walk to my building, I felt a throbbing pain…I know, I know…stop being a baby, Sami 🙂
I dined at my desk for lunch, and incorporated some supplies that I picked up at the grocery store before my game yesterday.
(2 slices 10 grain Arnold bread with 1 Quorn chicken cutlet, steamed kale, and 1 tbsp. Light Zesty Italian dressing with a tub of veggies on the side including snap peas and cherry tomatoes)
I think I may be getting a cold or have some type of viral thing, because not only am I freezing and achy, the soreness in my neck also hurts where my glands are, making it hard to swallow.
I decided that my best bet was to pump up my Vitamin C intake like it’s my job!
Or maybe I just used that as an excuse to snack like a maniac at my desk throughout the day 🙂 What can I say?! I wanted to be properly fueled for my game! Hehe.
Somewhere in between, I ate this amazing bowl of deconstructed CHERRY CHEESECAKE made healthy – aka, Cabot Low-fat Plain Greek yogurt mixed with sugar-free vanilla Torani syrup and then topped with sugar-free cherry pie filling and fiber one crunchy cereal.
Do yourself a favor and go try this immediately.
The game was a non-conference one, so it wouldn’t affect our top seed position if we lost. That didn’t change the fact that we wanted to kick some butt! The first half was a bit rough…I think we were worn down from the game the night before because we laid it all on the line. We managed to pull off a WIN, though! The final score was 79-59.
After my game, I had Nutrition class! I’m so lucky to have an understanding professor who allowed me to go to my game and come to class a little late.
We talked about carbohydrate makeup, digestion, fat soluble and water soluble nutrients, and food allergies.
glucose + glucose = maltose
glucose + fructose = sucrose
galactose + glucose = lactose
Eat food –> Digest to food to nutrients in the GI tract –>Absorb into circulation –> Deliver nutrients to cells
On our break during class, I ate dinner.
1 bag broccoli slaw steamed and topped with 3/4 C. light Ragu & 2 tbsp. Cedar’s garlic lovers hummus blended in
Deep chocolate Vitatop
Plus, I had needed some protein, so I supplemented with an EAS Carb Control drink for just 110 calories and 17g protein.
When I got home, dessert consisted a few chunks of my fave chocolate bar.
I packed up all my stuff for the next day and hit the bed early. Tonight will be the last time I see D for awhile…his flight leaves tomorrow morning at 8am…Please keep him in your prayers! I’d love to see him off at the airport, but I don’t want to intrude on family time, so I think I’ll say my goodbye tonight…:-/
Hope you all have a wonderful day!
