Wow, Lea was right. I went to the 1 hr yoga class and I was " sweating buckets" just as she predicted. It was so bizarre, you are moving in a space no bigger than 8-10 sq ft per person, your heart may or may not be racing, but you are sweating like crazy -- i might have well been in a spinning class I was sweating so much. Admittedly, there were a few flops, falling out of poses, inability to hold certain positions as long as others -- but considering it was my first class ever, it was great.
So, my next thought was to make a traditional cold cut sandwich, substituting cheese/mayo with avocado. So, I headed over to the deli section, and sampled at least three or four cold cuts, putting each aside after only one bite. A while ago, I cut out cold cuts from my diet, and now it seems I wont be able to include them ever again... taste buds rejected them.
I knew I wanted some sort of protein in the sandwich, but veggie patties were on the expensive side this week ( I try to only buy items on sale -- the economy ya know). Finally, it struck me, egg sandhich :)
Once home, I began assembling the " non meal" sandwich. Two pieces of fiber bread put me at 40% on my daily fiber requirements, a fresh tomato off the vine, two organic cage free eggs, and light string cheese from trader joes.
Once piece of bread was topped with ketchup. the other with horseradish mustard.
Some sliced tomatoes and "stringed cheese " made the next layer of the sandwich.
I think Daisy would like this one, vegetarian friendly and colorful.
Served with some baked Ruffles Chips and Trader Joes Fat Free European Organic Yogurt = perfectly satisfying lunch.
I ate half the sandwich and felt full beyond capacity... the other half is sitting in the fridge in saran wrap. Hopefully, it will last till tomorrow?? I think next time I will just make the half sandwich to start with :)
Yoga was great, I'm not craving much for dinner, maybe just fruit. Its either the heat, or yoga. Dunno which.
Contemplating another workout tonight... Is 1 hour of yoga enough of a workout for someone trying to lose weight?
