Last night cookies were good, really good. I had a few. Everyone needs sometimes a cookie or two?!
The main word here is sometimes. And I am perfectly aware of calories I put in.
But if I want to loose weight, I need to put in less calories than I burn during a day (or night - according to Calorie Counter I burn 548 cal during eight hours sleep - when I have it that long).
Sometimes I am good with the math, sometimes some extra cookies keep me at the gym for an extra hour or so. Nobody's perfect, right? And if there are perfect people they are bo-ring...
Today was one of those "sometimes" when I spent over two hours at the gym on elliptical and in aqua fitness class. And you know what? I think I had more endorphins from my workout than from the cookies... Paradox?!
Anyway, along with extra exercises I went vegan for the day. Some of my readers asked me what I eat on my vegan days.
Here is today's menu:
Breakfast - a rolled multigrains and a whole rye hot cereal with a blueberries.
Lunch - Tabbouleh salad (well, a variation actually as I didn't have all the ingredients for a classic Tabbouleh).
Dinner - a mix of a roasted eggplants, a zucchini, a red pepper, and a fennel with a microgreens salad.
I also had about 5 cups of green tea throughout the day, few almonds, an orange, and an apple.
Thank you for stopping by...
Until next time,
