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 haven’t taken a picture of food since the cupcake. I’ve been eating fairly well, though. Notable foods from yesterday include grilled steak with mixed veggies, and a doughnut. Covered both ends of the spectrum, there.
I tried a spin class yesterday and actually had fun! Of course my butt muscles hurt today, despite my efforts that included using a towel for cushioning, lol
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.
The thing is, they put a chicken Caesar salad into a giant 12″ wrap. Originally, it also called for low fat Caesar dressing. Well, low fat usually means high substitutes so I skipped it. I ate 1/2 wrap as is, then emptied the other half out to enjoy the salad as it was meant to be–without the carby blanket.
(Note: site readers will wonder why I didn’t just make a Caesar salad. Answer: this was cheaper. The salad bar is weighed by the ounce)
And yesterday’s eats:
Yogurt with Mandarin oranges for breakfast, Mac n cheese and hotdogs with spinach for lunch. We had gnocchi with white beans and spinach for dinner, and that meal is always so good that I never get a picture of it.
Added some inspiration to the bathroom mirror today :). Breakfast was oatmeal with peanut butter and honey
This is a first: cold, left over steamed veggies as a snack. Paired with baked cheddar crackers, it wasn’t bad!
Lunch was a ham sandwich with spinach 🙂 same as yesterday.
