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.
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.
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).
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.
