Lunchtime PSA & a Swim


I do try to eat healthy...thanks to working with an awesome nutritionist after having the Munchkin, I learned to watch more than just calories and fat. Now, I watch protein, sugar and fiber. I try not to eat as much processed food, watch the high-fructose corn syrup, etc. But for lunch, sometimes it's just easier to pop one of those Lean Cuisines in the nuker. Yesterday I tried this one:



Major lunchtime FAIL. I love Thai and that yummy (but fattening) peanut sauce, so I thought why not give it a try? I heated it up in the microwave at work. It smelled great and didn't look terrible. See...


Unfortunately, it was nasty. So, just in case you are also a lunchtime nuker like me, steer clear of this one!


As for workouts, I did head to the pool after work and managed to swim 1,700 yds. Most of this workout was just swimming. I did do some endurance drills and try to focus on my form, but other than that it was just swimming and swimming. Since I didn't swim at all last week, it felt terrific to get back into the pool. That's the thing about swimming - it's a pain to drive to the gym and miss out on family time, but once I'm there in the pool I really, really enjoy it!

As one who hates to cook, I'm all about convenience...but that DOES look yucky. I haven't had a L.C. in ages...know I know why. Woohoo for the fantistic swimming! :)

That's so funny -- that particular LC is one of the few I do eat from time to time. I like it. :)

LOL Sarah, it just wasn't for me I guess! I'll stick to my pizzas and Chicken Fettucine.

I'm not a huge fan of LC, but I like this flavor too! Guess I'm nasty. :)
