Not Such a Good Day

Yesterday, I had some serious motivational issues. It didn't help that it was raining all day without a break! It also didn't help that I was also tired and my body ached. Instead of getting my 10,000 steps, I decided to make myself some comfort food and soak my feet in an Epsom bath to relieve some of the soreness. Soaking your body or feet in a warm bath with Epsom salts is a folk remedy for sore muscles. There is so scientific rationale for using the Epsom salts. But, the warmth helped and it peppermint scent of the salts were very soothing. I didn't meet any of my mini goals except the sleep one.
BREAKFAST
Fage Yogurt - I didn't take a pic, so reusing a pic from a couple of days ago.

LUNCH
Salad w. Spinach, Arugula, Lentils, Quinoa, Walnits, Greek Dressing
1 Orange, Unsweetened Ice Tea

DINNER
Tea, Dahi Kabab
I discovered a new Indian snack over the weekend - Dahi Kabab. It's made by mixing strained yogurt (thicker than Greek yogurt) with a bunch of spices and roasted chickpea flour, making small balls out of it, rolling it in APF and then pan-frying them. I used just over a cup of strained yogurt, 1/2 cup of APF and 2 tbsp of oil for all of these. The total was 623 cal: 55/28/35 g of Carb/Fat/Protein. Not bad for such yummy comfort food and such a large portion!

I had dinner really early, so about 4 hours later, I was hungry again and ate a PBH on one slice of whole wheat bread, 1 small slice walnut bread, 10 rolled doritos chips, 1/2 bottle of coconut water

EXERCISE
4,629 steps - really sad. :-(
