I am so sore today. I am more sore from the MMA workout today that I was yesterday. Someone told me that it means it was a really good work out when you are more sore the second day. I have a friend visiting for the weekend but she’s gone for a few hours. I had planned on going to the gym while she was away but I think I need a day off.
I took the dog for an hour long walk this morning and that may do it for the day. It was already ridiculously hot at 9 am. I am also terribly hungry today. I am trying to keep my calories low. My friend likes to eat out and even making good choices in restaurants, it is more calories than a home meal. She’s muslim, but gets to eat this weekend. I will not deny her food as she’s been fasting all month.
Loosely speaking of, my weight went up 2 lbs, but I’m not terribly concerned. I know my weight cycles through the month. I know I have stayed in my calories for weeks. I can’t be gaining genuine weight.
While she’s away I may make some almond butter I saw on this blog, Playful and Hungry. I think I may add a bit of honey and cinnamon, results to follow. I eat peanut butter and celery a lot as a snack. I think this will be a good alternative to that. Also I read this yesterday, Almond Calories, which makes me want it even more. I threw a kiwi into my smoothie this morning and it was not a good addition. I think making some successful almond butter will soften the blow of the terrible smoothie.
Lastly, I know most people reading the blog are vegans. Do any of you have suggestions for low calorie snacks? I get tired of peanut butter and celery, popcorn, and humus and carrots after a while.
