Ship’s Log–February 12th

PicShells

I am starting to feel a little drained from the intense workouts this week and the cut in calories, so I let myself have a breakfast and dinner that were a little more hearty. Overall, today was probably a little carb heavy, but it still fell well within the rules I’ve set for myself.

The broiled grapefruit I had with lunch was an amazing treat, and I cannot recommend it enough, especially if you struggle with a sweet tooth. I simply took half a grapefruit, loosened the wedges with a knife (though I will try skipping this step next time and see if my grapefruit spoon will work), topped it with one sliced strawberry, sprinkled the top with a teeny tiny pinch of sugar, and put it under the broiler until it just began to brown. The result was so incredibly sweet and satisfying that I almost didn’t miss having my post-lunch piece of chocolate.
