Sunday wrap up

image

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.

Lunch: salad wrap

image

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)

This just in: New streak started

Chocolate and soda free, one day and counting 🙂

Found a possible dress for a friend’s wedding…

And had veggies for dinner. (I also had ham, but that was a quick slice at 7pm so that I didn’t give in to chocolate cravings).

Breakfast: onion or honeydew?

It’s been a long winter, but we had our first 70°+ day yesterday. That’s probably what prompted us to buy a honey dew melon imported from Mexico.

I cut into it this morning, and it tastes like it’s been mixed with yellow onion. The melon isn’t very sweet, but the added onion flavor really ruined it.  I had honey nut cheerios with chia seeds instead this morning.
