I am much happier today. All of your comments meant the world to me and made it that much easier to stay focused on my goals. I actually didn’t beat myself up over yesterday at all, but my stomach did remind me of my overeating until mid-day when the hunger finally struck. I was confronted by free bagels and girl scout cookies in the office, but none of that seemed even remotely appealing. Maybe yesterday’s train wreck saved me some calories today after all… It all balances out in the end, I guess. Anyways, I’m just thinking out loud now, let’s move on
BEST MEAL OF THE DAY:
You see, this was supposed to be the best meal of the day (or at least part of it):
I’ve been meaning to make Heidi’s cornbread recipe for ages and today’s dinner was supposed to be bbq inspired. What goes better than corn bread with a pulled chicken sandwich? Nothing I could think of 😀 I was super excited about this. I stopped by the grocery store after work, bought all fresh ingredients – no haircuts here…fresh corn (instead of frozen or canned), fresh buttermilk (instead of dry). I even had progress photos of everything and it all looked so promising. I couldn’t wait to dig into this baby! The result – it tasted like baking soda. Wait what, there was no baking soda in the recipe!! Yep, I used baking soda instead of baking powder!!! Really? I had to throw the entire beauty away. I’ve never screwed up this bad before. So so sad Thankfully I still saved one ear of corn so that ended up being my side dish. Ok, so not all was lost I will definitely be making this cornbread recipe again though. I think Jiffy has some junk ingredients in there and it’s definitely not whole wheat.
So I guess this is where I show you the rest of my dinner sans the corn bread…
For the sandwich I used Country Bob’s all purpose sauce on the chicken (full review of the sauce + giveaway to come soon!) and TJ’s ciabatta roll for the bread. Yum!
Food for Life english muffins rock and Sabra hummus goes well with everything! This sandwich was fantastic! 😀
And look what we got in the mail from my parents in law…
They’re so sweet! I’m keeping this box closed though. Dinner was crazy filling.

I really wanted to get a run in today. I was seriously craving it. The plan was to start with a pilates class (since I missed my weight lifting session at the gym today and I still want to do one tomorrow) and then do an interval session on the treadmill. I wasn’t hungry at all until 1pm when I went to the gym, so I didn’t have my usual pre-workout snack. Well of course the second the pilates class started my stomach started growling like crazy! I knew there was no chance in hell I could get through 50 minutes of the class, then do my run the way I want it, shower and only then eat. I stayed for the entire pilates class (which was great btw!!!) but went straight back to work after that and made my lunch. I was planning on maybe doing a run after work, but that never happened. It’s ok, the pilates class was really great and I need to remind myself that even if I’m not sweaty and dying at the gym, it can still be a great workout… just works your body differently. Oh, and my HRM was saying that my heart rate was 0.00 when I put it on so I took it off – that mean no workout stats. Not sure what was up with it. Hopefully it will come to its senses for my workout tomorrow 😀
See you tomorrow for a hump day update 😛 I’m cooking dinner with some girlfriends so that should be fun!
