Falling off the wagon!

Yesterday was one of those days that just turned out to be "eat whatever you want". It all started with breakfast. I went to bed really tired and had to get up early and was feeling pretty awful when I woke up -> hence intense craving for ice cream. Enter Chocolate Frozen Yogurt.

I polished off the remains of the container.

Since I was about to go to a 7-hr long meeting I decided some real food was necessary. Enter giant bowl of breakfast. (Kashi Honey Sunshine, Bran Psylliums, a container of yogurt, a third of an apple, some grapes, and a blob of sunflower butter).

Turned out to be a good move! I wasn't hungry for lunch until after 12 and then devoured this Gnocchi + Broccoli combo.

And a wunderbar for good measure.

I was really excited for dinner with Al at the New Bohemian! However, I was a bad blogger and forgot to take a picture of all our food. I did manage to snap a picture of the Al Fungi Pizza we ordered which was good, but not great.

We also got their breads & spreads basket and a half liter of a Mark West Pinot Noir (which was hands down the best part of the meal)

After dinner eats included a bottle of Pinot Noir and half a bottle of a Sangiovese. (Our first time trying this grape and we both thought it was great!)

Opted for a homemade McFlurry instead of a McDonald's creation. A cup of vanilla ice cream blended with a splash of milk and honey graham cookies. YUUUM.

And what goes better with wine than dark chocolate? This was a dark chocolate Dolfin bar infused with orange peels.

So I tried to track everything on sparkpeople but it's really hard to estimate the meal we ate out. I had three (small) pieces of bread and three pieces of pizza but have no idea how much they could be. Not including dinner I was at 1900 so, I'm going to estimate 1000 calories for dinner and clock the day in at 2900. YIKES.

However, I woke up this morning with an empty and HUNGRY stomach so I didn't feel too bad. Kept breakfast light with some grapes and a bagel.

Breakfast: (340 calories)

And snacked on a bag of popcorn and the rest of the wine throughout the morning.

Snack: (288 calories)

Wasn't hungry for lunch and had some assorted veggies (carrots/celery/cucumber) with dips (hummus/salsa/hot sauce) and some cashews.

Lunch: (200 calories)

Al made grilled chicken wraps for dinner and they turned out soooo good. Deli chicken slices on a flatout wrap with aged cheddar and blue cheeses, mushrooms, green peppers, and tomatoes.


Dinner: (320 calories)

Something sweet after dinner, cottage cheese + chocolate mousse topped with some cashews.

Dessert: (261 calories)

Total: 1408 calories.

Two high days this week makes me really look forward to a week of healthy eats! Also should make it a new rule not to have ice cream before 9am! :)
