I did it again! I worked out for the 2nd day in a row. It was only 30 minutes because the baby started crying, but that's much better than nothing. Also, I got on the scale again (I've been planning on having my weigh in day be Monday, but with yesterday's mess up, I decided to do it again today.) and it read 184. So, I didn't gain quite as much as I thought I had. Phew!
I started my morning with a smoothie and a handful of cashews. It kept me full until about 3pm! Wow! The cashews really made a difference. I think I'll continue having cashews with my smoothie.
I got hungry at around 3, but we were out and about and I didn't get home until about 4 and had a few carrots with some black bean hummus that I had made last night. This hummus is one of my staples. I just LOVE it and it is so yummy on salad in place of fatty dressings. Here's how I make it.
I fill up my food processor with 2 red peppers.
Then, I add 1 small or 1/2 large red onion and 6 cloves of garlic.
Then, I add 4 cans of black beans (drained and rinsed), the juice from 4 limes, 1 T. oregano, 1 1/2 T. cumin and 2 T. chipotle seasoning.
I blend it all up (sometimes, I can only fit 2 cans of beans until after it has blended a little bit.) and after it's completely blended, I add 1 bunch of cilantro and pulse it until mixed throughout. I put it on my salads and it's so good!
That's all for today. It's 11pm and I'm exhausted. I want to make sure I can get up and work out tomorrow.
