Surprise for Dad and Wednesday Eats

Does anyone know about the movie “Searchers” from 1956 with John Wayne? Well, this is my dad’s favorite movie. Me and my sisters heard him talking about it all the time growing up. I have seen it a couple of times and it is a great movie.  My sister, Tiffany, found out it was playing at our local cinema!! Dad’s birthday is in July so she wanted to surprise him and got tickets for all of us. The original fam…mom, dad, Kim, Tif and me, + Kim’s boyfriend Josh got to go.  Our other dude’s couldn’t make it.  He thought we were just going to dinner (I love surprises). Dad was totally surprised, we didn’t tell him until we were eating dinner. This is when Tif told him.

It was a great time.  He had the sweetest and excited look on his face. Here is a pic of me and dad…

We had a great time. We all really enjoyed the movie and being together. I could hear dad whispering different facts and tidbits about the movie. We all agreed there should me a remake. Maybe Viggo Mortensen or Liam Neeson as John Wayne??? Mom said Tom Selleck, HA! She has always loved him… Hehehe.

Here are my eats for the day.

Breakfast was a pb and j shake after my bootcamp class at 5am.  It has banana, peanut butter, berries and yogurt. Quite filling. Todd also made me an iced chai tea latte. BTW, I love the Bears!!! Can you tell?!

AM snack was small but tasty. 1 ounce of almonds and 1 ounce of craisins.

Lunch was deli roast beef on a whole wheat hot dog bun. I added veggies from the salad bar at work and picked up pineapples to add to my cherries.

Dinner was not our planned – Chile con Turkey. I actually forgot about the surprise plans with Dad, which is good actually  so I didn’t ruin the surprise. 🙂 We went to Chuy’s. I skipped the chips. I had a Corona Light, salad with a veggie enchilada and a small scoop of guacamole. Look at all that food!! Not too calorie dense.

TIP: Skipping the chips and margarita really help keep the calories down.

Today’s Eats

Breakfast – Quinoa with flax seed/wheat germ, blueberries and raspberries, dash of cinnamon, almond milk and 1 splenda packet.

Snacks:

am– 2 egg whites, 1 whole boiled egg and and small pear. Mrs. Dash sprinkled on top.

pm-Chobani Yogurt

Dinner was light because 1. Kids ate dinner at the grandparents house and 2. I indulged a little too much on fried pig ears, bone marrow and a pricey cocktail that tasted like spring in a glass over the Memorial Day Holiday weekend. Yum- Yum

Banana-Chocolate-PB shake! Always a quick go-to meal.

**Notice the New Glarus glass – my Man’s favorite brewery.
