I'm so sorry that I haven't been blogging! I was about two days behind when computer mouse stopped clicking, and the apple store needed to borrow it for a while to fix her up. She's back and working, and now I have a lot of food to share with you! I'll try to do a quick synopsis since I have so many days to cover! Unfortunately I have no pictures to share. I'm so sorry, I'll do better next time!
For breakfast I had a half cup a kefir. Clearly that means I was starving by the time I got to work, so I purchased an egg and cheese sandwich. It was on white bread, and I can't remember the last time I ate white bread. I tried to pick off the extra pieces/crust and only eat the egg-y and cheese-y parts. Along with this white bread sandwich came a huge coffee.
For lunch I ate the leftover Jack Daniels pulled chicken with brown rice.
I ate a lot of snacks throughout the day, including:
- 5 multigrain flaxseed crackers with peanut butter
- 50 calorie blueberry yogurt
- cheese stick
For dinner, we went on a double date with our friends the Paternos. I had edamame, 1 vegetable dumpling and delicious sushi. We also had some tasty martinis and a few beers.
Overall, I did a good job eating up some of the leftovers we had in the house, but shouldn't have purchased breakfast AND dinner.
For breakfast today, I had a whole wheat English muffin with peanut butter. I couldn't have my "go to" breakfast because we were out of bananas.
I met my fairy blog mother for lunch and we shared a Chopt Salad, which as you remember is super low cal and also great for sharing!
For my snack I ate a Twix. It was one of those days. You know what I mean.
For my other snack, I had a cheese stick. Much better option.
After work I went to an African Dance class, and set a new "fitbit high score" with 18,482 steps! Take that twix bar!
After the gym I had a little bit of a smoothie that MJ made and then we ordered in some dinner. I had some trout with a butternut squash and wheat berry risotto. Delish! Pretty sure it's not healthy though.
For dessert I had a VitaMuffin Top and loved it.
Tonight we had a big banquet for work, and I was hosting a pot-luck dinner before the banquet for some coworkers. This meant that MJ and I needed to pre-workout in anticipation for the night to come. We went for a run (about 3.3 miles) and ended at our favorite bagel place as usual. This will surely become a once a weekend habit, weather permitting! At the bagel place I got a whole wheat bagel (scooped out) with low fat cream cheese, lox, tomatoes and onions.
The only other snack I had during the day was a "go to" almond butter slice.
Then I made an epic amount of pasta. For the pot luck, I was making pasta, some one was bringing different sauces, another person was bringing garlic bread, someone else was bringing bruchetta, someone else mini hot dogs and some baked cheese dish, others brought desserts, and of course all the men who were not domestically inclined brought alcohol.
I think it's safe to say that this was definitely my "night off" of my clean eating meal plan. I wasn't too too bad though!
However, I did set a new new world record in my own fitbit stats! After running in the morning and dancing at the banquet, I put in 19,861 steps! And the crowd goes wild!!!!!!!
Today for breakfast I had a little 50 cal yogurt and a half of a banana. Then MJ and I ran some errands (AKA to the apple store to bring my poor little laptop in to get fixed!) We also stopped at Costco and I had a few free samples - turkey bacon, tuna, and apple juice! Don't you just love free sample day at a food store?! I mean they stuff they have is always so random but you can't help but try it, right?
For lunch we had pasta and turkey meatballs. I mean I have a TON of pasta left over and hate to see it go to waste. YES, I did call the local homeless shelter and unfortunately they can't accept cooked food.
In the afternoon we had some cantaloupe and mini cheese quiches. Also we had some brownies. Also a caramel machiatto from starbucks. I forgot to say a skinny one. Shoot.
For dinner we went out to eat with the Jordans. I had 2 little slices of bread and 1 cup of mushroom/barley soup (with 2 saltine crackers). For my main dish, I had cod with green beans almondine and rice pilaf.
For dessert I had 2 bites of dark chocolate with mint in it. Totally unnecessary. Man I was not good at all this weekend. This is not going to go well tomorrow on that scale.
