Eating and Activity for Saturday, 5/30

So today happened to be more active than I had planned, which was very nice.

Breakfast - Kashi GoLean Crunch with Almonds and Flax, light soy milk, and some decaf coffee
Now according to the Eat This book, you shoul never have cereal with more than 12 grams of sugar (which is how many this Kashi cereal has), but it also says you should have a 2:1 ratio between sugar and fiber and this ceral has 8 grams of fiber so I put it down as a good cereal, but not one I eat everyday, maybe just once a week.

After breakfast and after Hope's first nap, the whole family went for an easy short (3 mile) run. It was nice, but definitely getting very warm.

Lunch - Hummus and veggie sandwich with reduced fat cheddar on whole wheat bread and some teddy grams. I know what you are saying, but I love sweets and after that savory sandwich I needed something sweet. I know fruit would have been better, but I love those teddy grams. :) While making my lunch, I did also snack on some leftover homemade blue cheese and walnut crackers too. Yum!

After Hope's second nap, Adam and I went to see my sister and her fiance' and to play some tennis. We had to take turns playing and watching Hope, but it was still nice to get some more practice in. I have a singles match tomorrow and I am very nervous about it.

Dinner - We ended up going out to dinner, but we walked so that made it nice. It was almost a mile walk each way so I had an appetite by the time we got there. We ordered some appetizers to split (cheese plate and calarmari), so I had a little of each, but was feeding Hope at the same time so I was hard to eat too much (she had smashed avocado, yum). For dinner, I ordered the sashimi tuna with veggies and rice. The portion wasn't too big so I didn't feel bad getting most of it, and with all the exercise I did today, I figured I was fine. Normally, I like to eat half and take the rest home, but tonight, that just wasn't going to happen. Adam tried my tuna and actually liked it. He's not a fan of fish that is not completely cooked.

After the walk back, we had to get Hope ready for bed immediately and now she is down for the count, so I am relaxing with a nice glass of red wine. I am not a big drinker, but I do like a glass of red wine every now and again. After all my activity today, I am sure I will be in bed early tonight.


  1. Were those Ina's blue cheese crackers? I saw her making them on the food channel last weekend and they looked divine.

  2. Yes, they are Ina's crackers. I made them for an engagement party. They were a big hit!
