A beautiful Monday it was. I enjoyed a great week off last week and while I paid for it a little bit at my desk today, I know it was worth it. It was also good to be back at work, really. I love my job.
I did have a slight binge issue today. I haven't done that in awhile but I'm chalking this one up to hormones...and it was on a super food at least...dark chocolate covered almonds. I had some at my desk and I could tell the person who filled in for me last week had gotten into them (lol). I had a handful and then just wanted, really wanted more. I tried to stave off the craving, even putting some back but I ended up finishing them. All 400 calories worth. Geez! Well, again, it was a superfood. And I'm pre-menstrual and usually have some sort of chocolate attack around this time. Next time I will have plain dark chocolate around so I don't have all the added fat of the almonds. I love almonds and absolutely believe they are heart healthy...in small quantities (like the dark chocolate).
So I won't buy dark chocolate covered almonds again for awhile. It is safer to keep my chocolate and my almonds separate. Especially when I see that I burned that exact amount of calories in my workout tonight. lol.
I did not go over my calories, but did go over the fat intake by a little. And I was a bit short on protein today, will remedy that tomorrow.
I could not get up early but did manage to get in a Biggest Loser workout tonight. It was great. I am planning on getting up early tomorrow and running some intervals with a friend. I am excited about that and looking forward to kicking another 500 calories in the teeth. Take that, hormones.
So here are my stats:
INPUT (food facts):
400 Calories burned: Biggest Loser Cardio Max Level 1 with warmup/cooldown.
Have a great Monday night! See ya tomorrow!
