Before I left, I ate a Larabar (SO GOOD) to curb my cravings.
|Ready to take on my day!|
I ended up buying a new sports bra, a new tank top to workout in, and some new running shorts. I have a very limited exercise wardrobe so I'm constantly trying to add to it.
After I got home, I decided to bake my very first loaf of banana bread, ever! It actually turned out pretty tasty! My first baking success.
Here is the link to the original recipe: Banana Bread
-2 cups all purpose flower
-1/4 tsp salt
-1 tsp baking soda
-1/2 cup butter
-3/4 cup brown sugar
-2 eggs, beaten.
-2 1/3 cups of mashed overriped bananas. (I used four bananas.)
-Preheat the oven to 350 degrees, grease the 9x5in loaf pan.
-Add the first three ingredients to a large mixing bowl.
-In a separate bowl, cream together the butter and brown sugar. (I DON'T have an electric mixer, so this is where things got tricky for me. I'm definitely investing in one ASAP.)
|Using my laptop for baking support ;)|
|Mashing the bananas!|
|This took quite a while to blend by hand.|
|Mixing it all together.|
For dinner I had left over shredded chicken with leftover Mexican rice, and some veggies. I'll admit that I did have a couple snacks late at night (some whole wheat grilled cheese sandwiches + chips), but I'm working hard to curb my late night snacking. I had my dinner at 5:30 last night which is REALLY early for me, so I might try to eat it at 6:30 instead to lessen my cravings at night.
I spent the rest of the day doing laundry, dishes, reading for school, and watching Grey's with my boo. We popped Fighting in the Blu Ray player right before bed, and it knocked my boyfriend out pretty fast. I watched the whole thing, and it was a terrible, terrible movie. I couldn't stand what Terrence Howard was doing with his character!
Off to do Couch25K Day Two, then spend the day running errands with my love! We both have the day off until about 3:30, when I have to head to work, and he has to head to class :(
