September 25th, 2008: Dinner

Sorry this didn’t get up yesterday guys, I was pooooped. I’m still pooped. :p

While I wasn’t too terribly hungry yesterday afternoon, I needed to give myself a little something in order to fuel me during MT conditioning class. I decided to try a new bar.

First taste

First taste

I tried this Luna Bar Chai Tea for the first time yesterday. The first bite I thought was a little odd and had a very chalky aftertaste and texture to it. I appreicated the great ginger and nutmeg seasonings enough to give it another go. I ate another bite and it was all I could do to swallow it. Ugh. This bar was so disgusting. I asked Scott if he wanted to try it (because you know I hate throwing food away) and he said it was fine and he would eat it. Yeah, well after a couple of bites even he couldn’t finish the bar and we did end up tossing it. Never again! I have one more Luna bar left in PB cookie flavor but truth be told, I’m not sure I want to even try it.

I decided on a small amount of cereal instead. I had 1/4 cup of Kashi H2H and 1/4 cup of Kashi Go Lean High protein and High fiber. After the pic I added some vanilla soy milk. This was fine although I think even that small amount of extra fiber was too much for me. :o

I decided to wear my HRM to conditioning class to see what kind of calories I was burning. Since this is a conditioning class there is no hitting each other, we do exercises and bag work for 45 minutes. My HRM said I burned 435 cals. Wooo! When I told my instructor he said, “That’s it?” :p That’s a lot! Considering it’s a 45 minute class and I’m not moving the entire time. We do partner work, for example, I hold Scott’s feet while he does sit-ups. Since I’m not moving my HR will go down and hence calories burned will go down. So 435 I think is an awesome amount. :D

Dinner was kind of a thrown together mish-mash. I discovered late in the day that I didn’t have any pizza crust for Pizza Thursdays and it was too late for me to make some. Boo! So I did some apple cheddar quesadillas instead.

Yup, that’s a lot of stuff on that plate. One quesadilla cut into thirds, some apple spice chick sausage from WF, and some oven fries. In the back is ketchup and some dipping sauce for the sausage made out of mustard and apple sauce. It was yummy! I ate almost all of the quesadilla, save for about 1/3 of one triangle, three pieces of sausage, and all my fries. And then some fries off of Scott’s plate. :blush: I totally gave in to my fry craving. I ate way too much, I had that over-full stuffed feeling. Ugh. Along with dinner I made us a round of mandarin lime fizzies.

After dinner we sat on the couch and watched some TV.

I had one glass of white while watching HH. Then it was off to bed, I was exhausted.

    Really! I LOVE the Luna bars. Only Nutz over Chocolate tho. I haven’t tried the other flavours. I don’t like the Cliff bars tho – they taste chalky to me.
