I’m back from my blogger break, and doing well! Both tests went off without a hitch, so the hours of studying were definitely worth it. Anatomy Test was over Muscles, Bones, and Nerves. Nutrition was over Healthy Lifestyles, Sports Nutrition, and Eating Disorders. So, a lot of really good material all crammed into one week. But it’s worth it. I have class tonight, and then we get a full week break next week for July 4 Holiday! Yeah for a much needed break!
So, here’s an update on some weekend meal plans:
Saturday: I was quite pleased. I was only 2 grams over on carbs and 1 gram over on fat, but still within calorie and protein ranges, and I got a lot of vitamins and minerals today. Plus, I worked out and did a lot of studying.
Breakfast was 4 oz. 2% organic milk, 1 mini spinach-bacon-mushroom quiche, 1/3 c. blueberries, and 1/3 c. strawberries with 1 tsp. of raw sugar, and 2.5 c. of coffee with skinny caramel creamer.
Lunch was another slice of quiche and a bowl of leftover broccoli soup.
I had 2 c. of kale with 2 Tbsp. of organic ketchup for a snack.
Dinner was 1 c. grapenuts cereal, 1/3 c. blueberries, and 1 c. blueberry kefir (a yogurt drink).
Sunday: Yeah for thinking ahead. I know we have plans to have pizza with friends tonight, so I’m planning ahead to balance out the day. I was well within every range except for being a little high on protein, but not too excessive.
Breakfast: 1 slice quiche, 1/3 c. blueberries, 1/3 c. strawberries, and 1 c. coffee with skinny caramel creamer again.
Lunch: 3 oz. pork tenderloin, 1 c. mashed potatoes, 10 asparagus, 2 sliced roma tomatoes.
Dinner: 2 slices cheese pizza, veggie tray (carrots, cucumbers, and red pepper strips) with a Tbsp. of hummus, and blueberry salsa (recipe to come) with low-fat, baked tortilla chips. Okay, I also had a piece of cookie bar, but I was still within ranges.
Monday and Tuesday were good too, but I won’t bore you with the details. They basically mimicked the two days above. 🙂
