A fun Heather McD fact: When Chris and I first started dating, I kept one lock of my hair died hot pink. I don’t remember when I stopped doing this, but Chris always loved the pink. So funny because he looks so conservative, and I’m more of the free spirited type when it comes to style. I love that about us. Anyway, onto breakfast…
Looks pretty carbolicious, huh? Well it wasn’t! The stats: 475 calories, 14 grams of fat (26%), 21 grams of carbs (18%), and 63 grams of protein (55%). Since February 24 is National Pancake Day (Thank you Polly!), I decided to make Justine’s protein crepes (again) to celebrate. My obsession with these crepes is out of control, and I’ve decided to declare it National Pancake Week so that I can eat them every morning for the next few days! This morning’s crepes were topped with peanut butter, Smart Balance Light, 1 scrambled egg white, 1 Morningstar sausage pattie, and maple syrup. I can’t believe how delicious and filling this was for under 500 calories and over 60 grams of protein!
Blended Bowl of the Day:
This magnificent bowl was both dairy AND soy free. I’ve been holding off on eating the coconut milk yogurt sitting in our fridge until my dairy-free month of March, but I couldn’t take it anymore. So, into the mix it went along with 1 cup cooked barley, 1 TBSP carob powder, and a splash of water to aid in blending. Topped it all off with a little peanut butter…perfect.
I made Hangry Pants’ raw pesto sauce, and then in perfect Heather-style, un-rawed it with meatballs for Chris and salmon for me.
Exercise today: Recumbent bike. After 40 minutes I couldn’t take it anymore and finished my workout with a brisk 20 minute walk on the treadmill. My yoga workshop starts in 6 days. Ahhh, I will be so sad if I have to miss any of it! I don’t know – maybe even the bike is irritating my hamstring. So frustrating, but I think I will skip the biking for the rest of the week. Ugh, I’m dying here…seriously, does anyone else thrive on a good sweat fest? I need them in my life!
I’m giving up gum for Lent, or aspartame laden rubber as Chris likes to call it. I’m a total gum-aholic. No cardio…no gum? Watch out chocolate…we’re going to be good friends these next few weeks.
So, back to the pink streak. It’s probably been 3 years since I’ve done something funky to my hair, but I surprised Chris with a new do. Yesterday, I went super dark, and put the pink back.
Ever done anything crazy with your hair? OK, off to cram a few sticks of Spearmint Extra into my mouth before midnight!
