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.
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.
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.
What a day… I’m really craving chocolate or candy at this point, but, I’m trying to give it up. The good news is that I’ve got an orange to compensate 🙂
Today was a pretty good day. I had a lot of lean proteins and a lot of spinach. Of course, I had a poptart and crackers, too. This blog is about progress, not perfection, so I’ll continue to tell it like it is.
I’ve been depressed lately. Hopefully I’m rounding a corner.
