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.
I’m off the wagon, but not so far behind that I can’t jump up there tonight.
I weighed in on Saturday, and it’s good news!! Then, I went to a photo shoot, cracked a tooth on popcorn and then decided truffles were a good replacement snack.
Sunday was mother’s day, and so, of course, I spent it with family.
I had two small pieces of cheese cake last night, and a cookie bar with lunch today. What was I thinking??
It’s back to zero tolerance for treats, I think.
This week’s lunches have all been the same, sandwiches and fruits/veggies…
Until now. Enter, the (super cute, super delicious) roast beef, provolone, and spinach wrap:
This unassuming little meal was absolutely delicious. It’s just a 5″ tortilla layered with 2-3 ounces of roast beef, a quarter slice of provolone, and a pinch of spinach. I had two, hubby should’ve had three. They’re scrumptious and a nice deviation from the standard sandwich.
I only had a couple of sugar attacks today. The first was after lunch, and I pinged Eli. It was funny, in a way. He just said “breathe.” And that helped. He also offered an orange, which I thought was sweet enough 🙂
My only concern with giving up sugar (-y snacks) would be picking up salty snacks. I had cheeze it’s for a morning snack. The almonds pictured above are my solution to another late day craving 🙂
After work, I was still ravenous, so after guzzling water, I landed on a choice of beef sticks for a snack. Ehhh…
The good news is that I got a ten minute walk in. The bad news is that I was still “starving” when I met up with Jeff, so we went out to dinner.
My hangry got the better of me, and we split a cookie before the meal. We were at Davanni’s and I had a solo Hawaiian on thin crust.
Breakfast was a yummy piece of banana bread that I made it home. There were even chocolate chips in it! I, of course, had some coffee as well. Lunch was a turkey sammich scarfed down between emails and my lunch break is being used for a nice walk . I cannot believe it’s 45 degrees out!
this weekend I spent a lot of time spring cleaning and I even have a bicycle trainer set up to her living room. I cannot wait to get more active.
Dinner was shrimp pesto with pasta, garnished with carrot greens… Because we don’t believe in parsley and we have carrots 😛
It almost makes up for the potluck followed by hours of shopping to walk it off.
