I’m so tired today! Maybe my not so stellar diet this weekend is catching up with me? I’m not sure, but this evening after dinner while the husband was playing with the little guy I totally crashed on the couch. I’m still exhausted so I’m going to head to bed after I post this quick update. :)
I actually mustered up enough motivation to run after work. I realized that I have my next 5K this weekend and I need to start training for the half I signed up for in May by Feb 9th to get 12 weeks in. All I can say is….. YIKES! I’m glad I set those goals, the are keeping me going.
Other then the run I have nothing to report accept for the new Fiber One 90 calorie bar I tried. If I had more energy I’d probably write a whole post about them but to be honest, I just don’t have it in me. They are like every other "diet food," yummy and chock full of things I can’t pronounce. . .
Chicory root extract, chocolate chips with confectioners shellac (chocolate chips [Sugar, Chocolate Liquor, Cocoa Butter, Dextrose, Milk Fat, Soy Lecithin, Ethanol, Shellac, Hydrogenated Coconut Oil]), Rolled Oats, Crispy Rice (Rice Flour, Sugar Malt, Salt), Barley Flakes, High Maltose Corn Syrup, High Fructose Corn Syrup, Sugar, Canola Oil, Honey, Glycerin, Maltodextrin, Palm Kernel Oil, Tricalcium Phosphate, Soy Lecithin, Salt, Nonfat Milk, Peanut Oil, Cocoa Processed with Alkalin, Natural Flavor, Baking Soda, Color Added, Almond Flour, Sunflower Meal, Wheat Flour, Mixed Tocopherols Added to Retain Freshness.
Can we get yummy and full of ingredients I actually WANT to put in my body… PLEASE! When will these companies listen. Ugh.. it’s like talking to a brick wall.
Sorry.. I’m just tired and grumpy. Here’s my food journal for the day. I didn’t intentionally keep my points low I just wasn’t that hungry. It’s amazing what happens when I actually listen to my body.
