June 26th Cupcakes, Lettuce Turkey Wraps, Tortillas, OmmNomm..
Today started off very fun and exciting! I got into the office and a few hours later I was sent on a ‘secret mission’ to go and pick something up from another office downtown. It really wasn’t anything exciting, just a comp’d product for a project that was being presented. Well I had two options, I could either go and walk there or take the bus/trolley. I decided to walk for a few reasons. The first, because it was beautiful! It was a cooler day! And I was happy to be outside of the office and get some fresh air rather than being couped up in a bus or something. And of course, lets not forget how satisfying it is to put in your exercise acitivity on Calorie Counter…. Let me answer that for you, very satisfying.
After I left the company I walked to this place I had been talking to my colleagues about for a few weeks or so. It was right on the way back from the office which made it too serendipitous to pass up. It’s Called Colossal Cupcakes and it’s in downtown Cleveland and I decided to be the awesome office-mate who brought some mid-morning breakfast for my mentor, the other guy in the office, and the two girls who took me out to lunch and dinner and didn’t let me pay. I think a delicious baked treat is better than a boring thank you card? Eh, it’s arguable, but if you check out my twitpic you can see how AMAZING they really were! Shoot! I do have to confess that I was so proud of myself and how portion conscious I was … I don’t like frosting to begin with, but I only at the cake of the cupcake haha sorry frosting lovers… what are ya gonna do?
So, a welcomed reception of smiling faces with cupcakes in hand was what I found myself encountering when I got back to the office. Yay! Then I plugged in a cupcake to my calorie counter and that kinda made me cringe, but the thing was, I had already eaten it and I’m starting to get to the point of if I see how many calories something is, I won’t eat it, and damnit, after yesterdays workout I think I could spare some chocolate cake-iness.
Lunch was another ‘my version’ of a turkey wrap aka Jimmy John’s Unwich. Hey, I’m hooked, at least its a healthy craving right? Then worked out/swam/tread water… And then had a dinner date with family.
My stepmom invited me over because she had to give me keys for the house since they were going out of town and I would be house sitting and dog sitting for a bit. She made her home made tortillas. So I also watched how much and what I ate. Measured out my sour cream portions and cheese. The rice and chicken same, but the good thing is that she makes them spicy/hot so that’s great for your metabolism! Pretty good healthy choices?
And when I told you guys that my life literally revolved around food and what I eat, today is a perfect example of the truth behind it. Sad, but true.
I swam for 26 minutes total today. First, I did 16 minutes doing full laps in the pool, alternating freestyle and breaststroke. Then, I tread water for 10 minutes. Planning on upping the time each session I go or depending on how I’m feeling. Today was not my strongest suite for swimming however, and they had to close down the lap lanes because of a class that comes in… So that’s why I swam for such a short time. And treading does get boring after a while if there’s no one else around unfortunately.
According to my Calorie Counter App I burned over 2,796 calories and consumed 828 for the day. Breakfast started off with a delicious and guilt ridden cupcake, apple sauce, and clementines. Lunch was a home made version of my favorite (Jimmy John’s Turkey Tom Unwich). I had some baby carrots and a little bit of ranch and added some spinach to the turkey lettuce wrap. Dinner was my stepmom’s home made tortillas that I had to control what I ate and how much of it.. So hard to do. Didn’t do horribly for the day however, which is a plus.
