I woke up early and hit the gym Had a great workout and tried some new weird machine for cardio at the Y. Cardio is so much easier with TV smack in front of your face!! I have no picks of my breakfast or morning snack so they must not have been all the interesting. Lunch wasn't really either. I had planned on having another calzone made with the rest of the dough from last night but mom called and said she was staying home from work so I made something quick so I could go and
I also had a bowl of dark chocolate oat bran with big glob of peanut butter.
Yesterday was such a nice day here in Nashville and I was really craving something off the grill and I also had lots of fresh fruit that needed to eaten. I decided our menu would be
- grilled shrimp
- grilled chicken skewers
- grilled eggplant
- tropical fruit salad
Shrimp and chicken...
Here's my plate. I ate the fruit last.
Now on to today. Breakfast was an omelet with spinach and mushrooms and a bowl of dark chocolate oat bran with wheat bran and a little drizzle of Chocolate PB2. YUM!!!!
My snack was cottage cheese with cinnamon and a banana stuffed with peanut butter.....
Moving along to the star of the day, lunch. Last night while waiting for stuff to marinate I decided to make Sarah's green pea guac. Mine was a little different. I used chopped fresh tomatoes, garlic powder and salt and pepper.
I tasted it and new immediately she was definitely on to something. Thanks Sarah!!! Anyway, I could wait to try it again today. I figured I would utilize it by making Chicken & Shrimp Fajitas with last nights leftovers. I steamed some broccoli and peppers and added it to 2 ounces each of the chicken and shrimp along with some hot sauce and southwest chipolte Mrs. Dash.
On the side I had a large La Tortilla Factory ww tortilla and a toasted Spinach Flatout wrap for dipping.
I had so much of the veggie and meat mixture left I went back for another half of a ww tortilla. This was the BEST lunch I have had in while (sorry salads). I loved the Green Pea Guac!! It was amazing and I practically have one foot out the door now to go get some more avocados!!!! Needless to say I am stuffed now and can barley get off the couch. I think my cell phone has rang about 5 different times but I am to full to go get it :).
CONFESSION OF THE DAY: Do you ever fell like you over do it sitting at the computer or watching TV? I really think I have been lately :( . I am starting to feel guilty about it. These next few days I am going to make a conscious effort not to spend so much time on either. I think I will be much more productive and I think the little one will really appreciate it :).
Those macaroons should be here any day now........
