Tuesday came and went. Hot weather and all. Don’t know where you live but in Houston, Texas it is setting a record-breaking week. Temperatures are in the 100’s. Humidity makes it even worse. Ugh! I drank lots of water today cuz it was hot out there.
Here is a look at my meals for today.
Breakfast was an opened faced egg sandwich. I scrambled 1 whole omega 3 egg and 2 egg whites with orange and yellow peppers. Next I put the eggs on a slice of whole wheat toast and topped it with tomatoes and salsa. YUM!! My man makes me coffee or tea in the morning and today he made me chia tea. I like it with 2 splendas and added a splash of unsweetened coconut milk. Great start to this sweltering day.
My snack this am about 10 was 3/4ths cup of All Bran cereal and 8 ounces of skim milk. Best snack I have had in a while.
Lunch comes about 1pm at work. I packed myself a mixed green salad for lunch. I had planned on getting a grilled chicken breast from the cafeteria grill but when I got there the line was super-duper long so I looked around for something different. Luckily, I found another lean meat, roasted turkey breast, from the hot line. I cut up the turkey to add to my salad and used olive oil vinaigrette. I also ate a small greek yogurt (not pictured.)
I really wasn’t too hungry for my PM snack when 3:30 rolled around and I was really busy wrapping up things before I leave work at the end of this week for my new job. BUT… I knew I would be hungry come dinner time so I ate my deli sliced turkey I brought from home on my way to pick up the kids. I didn’t get to my orange.
And now we come to dinner. Again, I am trying new recipes from “The New Abs Diet” book. My man, Todd, got home before I did tonight so he offered to start dinner for us. Kudos for Todd for always helping out!! 🙂 I book marked the recipe page so he could get started on our MAS MACHO MEATBALLS. But he made an oopsy and kinda mixed the pasta sauce in with the meatball mixture before cooking. My dinner plate was MAS MACHO MEATBALL MESS topped with extra pasta sauce and a pinch of low-fat mozzarella on a whole wheat hotdog bun. I added slices of orange, green apple and a handful of blueberries. Turned out pretty yummy!! Good job Todd!
Here is the workout I completed today. I squeezed it in between work and the kids summer tutoring. I completed the Incline Booty Workout from FitSugar. You can find a great pdf of this workout and other elliptical routines at fit_ellipiticalworkout_final.
Yay! This week really flew by. I am sooo happy it’s Friday. Here is a quick look at my eats for Friday.
Breakfast is a fast favorite. Scrambled eggs with spinach, avocado, salsa and a spoon of plain Greek Yogurt. I mix 2 whole Omega 3 eggs with 1/2 cup liquid egg whites. I put that aside and heat about a cup of chopped frozen spinach for a few minutes in the microwave. When the spinach is done I drain/squeeze it slightly to remove the excess water. I scramble the eggs and about half way through I add the spinach. Combine it in and scramble until done. I add 1/4-1/2 avocado, couple tablespoons of salsa, and a spoon of plain Greek yogurt. Man, this is such a flavorful and filling breakfast.
Lunch today was a mixed greens salad with grilled chicken breast. Nothing special. Just an easy go to meal. Again, I added yogurt and fruit for my sides. Jeez, I ate yogurt everyday with my lunch this week. Sometimes I feel I have to eat it up before it expires so I get in my yogurt mode until it’s all gone. Next week I’ll drink more skim milk for some dairy variety.
I had Lacy night out on Friday night. I wanted to go shopping something awful. One of my favorites in life is to do vacation clothes shopping. For me and the kids. I think I got this from my mom. I remember her getting us new stuff before we would go to summer youth camp. Dresses, shorts, beach towels…you name it, we got it. So, Friday I got to go after work and spend time at the “BIG” mall, not just the stores in town. While I was out I did partake in the mall eatery area. I decided on a plain roast beef from Arby’s. This is about 350 calories. One of my go to for fast food. I made a pass in the new H&M store. It was packed. The line for the dressing room was winded through the store 😦 I didn’t try anything on and I did overhear one of the employees say the clothes run small. I found a couple of things I liked and did not stand in line to try them on and bought them anyway. Well, what they say is true. Their sizes do run small, but I will only have to return 1 thing. Overall, good shopping night and now I’m even more excited about vacation. 🙂
