Last week, we got free breakfast one morning because it was “Health Ahead” day. Yummo! I had a veggie frittata, apples with peanut butter, a small quesadilla, and infused water. It reminded me that I like water with cucumber and lemon. It’s time to break out the infusion pitcher!
I had a lot of spinach with my lunches last week, with grapes, carrots, raisins and string cheese for snacks.
For exercise, I did spin on Tuesday, muscle attack Wednesday, treadmill on Thursday, and walking on Friday. Yesterday I walked a few miles at a community art fair, and today I rode bikes with Jeff.
Today was mostly on track. For breakfast, I had toast with peanut butter and bananas, with a heap of grapes on the side. Lunch was chocolate cake and cheese puffs. Dinner is back on track with a BLT salad, made with spinach, avocado, tomato, and a bit of bacon. For dessert, I have geek yogurt topped with raspberries.
Hi folks.. I couldn’t get a decent pic of dinner because my apartment is super dim after dark, so you get a combo of three shots I did take..I think it’s neat.
Top pics represent a trip into the city, and my hubby showing me love by remotely accessing the PC while he was at work and I was at home.
Dinner was a “man meal” consisting of pork chops, green beans, and a mix of shredded potatoes with mushrooms and bacon. It was delicious.
I also hit the gym tonight, for about an hour. In fact, I’m blogging from the parking lot:
My day so far:
6:00am – ignore alarm to go work out
9:00am – wake up, eat a piece of toast with peanut butter, work on artwork.
11:00am – leave for iaido
12:00pm – realize there’s no iaido today
3:30pm – get home, after exploring much of the city, realize food was over 6 hours before and not much at that… eat 2oz cheddar to stave off hunger while figuring out food. Head to Target to pick up supplies I was hungry, though, so I ended up getting some things to snack on, Heh… Easter candy already? At least I shared it with Jeffrah.
4:00pm – eat an actual meal:
4pm: the latest I’ve ever eaten the first real meal of a day… usually I at least graze more.
been super tired today, and been fighting a headache. Hungry headache?
Let’s get beck on track, shall we?
Dinner the other night was bacon, tomato, avocado, and chicken. It started out as a sandwich, but the bread couldn’t hold up.
I didn’t track at all yesterday, but I hope it wasn’t as bad as Wednesday.
To break the chain of bad days, I talked to friends, talked to Co workers, watched The Mindy Project, updated my “good things” calendar, and distributed smiley faces at work.
Could you use a smile today?
Surprisingly (or maybe not surprisingly), the smiles were really well received and met with genuine smiles and reflections on what a rough week it’d been. It was nice, AND it was easy. Feel free to try it some time.

Mom bought me breakfast.
I have to pay her back 😦
Is anyone else completely inflamed by the NJ game “KO”? Some kids really could’ve used some discipline before they got that stupid.
I worked out this morning 🙂 no pics in the gym, but I did some iaido warm-ups and then some strength training for my arms. I feel alright. My back hurts, but not badly 🙂
Breakfast is one slice of French toast and two strips of bacon. Simply orange in the side.
Baked potatoes, I’ve heard, are actually good for you! I loaded mine up with veggies, salsa, and shredded cheese. I sprinkled a little bacon on top and had sour cream on the side. The cookie was a peanut butter cookie and delicious.
