First problem was that my breakfast was so sweet to me, I couldn’t finish it – which resulted in a second problem – low blood sugar! I calculated how much insulin I would need to cover the breakfast (which was a lot by the way at 74 grams of carbs!) but if you don’t eat enough to match the insulin, it results in low blood sugar.
Around noon I could feel the sweat start, and sure enough, I was 42 and sinking. My first thought was to go get chocolate from our office candy dish, but then had a better idea:
Pure apple juice to the rescue! With 36 grams of carbs, this did the trick so I could work out!
Day 28 of 30 Day Shred is complete! I worked out with someone from the building next to ours – she saw us working out and asked to join in, so today we did level 1. And you know what?? It was easy! Well, easier than level 3 – and to think that 28 days ago I couldn’t do the whole thing without stopping!
Now on to lunch. Tofu noodles are not for everyone. I believe Hannah told me they tasted like worms when I had her try them once! There is an odd texture and “funky” smell to these noodles.
That being said I love them! It was kind of tricky because I don’t have a strainer at work (may have to stock that for the future!) because you really have to rinse these noodles off. If I were at home, I would have run them under cold water, then “towel dry” them with paper towels and then microwave for one minute.
This is two servings (which I made one for me!) at 20 calories per serving!
Lunch (with my spinach salad) comes in at 452 calories, 29 fat and 25 carbs
Tony thinks I like baby spinach too much!
It was the last of my Cincinnati Chili - lunch was delicious!
