I’m back!

Beware, there are some not so healthy eats ahead.  Everything in moderation, right?  Let’s see, where did I leave off?  Saturday morning, I had to work to set up a wedding, before I left the house, I polished of the last of the Grape Nuts:

With a half a banana, cinnamon, and some agave syrup.  I have got to get some more, I love those crunchy nuggets! Check out the wedding pics:

Perty, huh?  I brought my lunch to work:

Salad with romaine lettuce, tomatoes, carrots, feta cheese, and chicken with organic honey dijon vinaigrette. After work, I snacked on a not so ripe nectarine while I drove to my sister’s house:

My uncle is in town visiting from Ohio, and we had dinner at my mom’s house.  My mom is a great cook.  She’s famous for her comfort foods.  Comfort foods don’t usually equal healthy foods, but they are good for the soul.  For dinner we had meatballs, and awesome mac n cheese made with Gruyère, extra sharp cheeses, and blue cheese, bacon and a salad:

And homemade chocolate chip and peanut butter chip cookies, I had one chocolate chip and half of the peanut butter chip:

Not a very good picture, but so darn tasty!!  There was also a few glasses of Pinot Grigio consumed.  An indulgent night, that’s for sure.  And Sunday was a repeat.  I started out with a chocolate toaster pastry:

I only ate one of these, and I also had a banana.  In the afternoon, we cooked out at my mom’s house and played cornhole:

I pigged out on a burger, sweet potato fries, baked beans, chips, and watermelon.  And another cookie for dessert:

After all that plus a few more glasses of Pinot Grigio, I wasn’t even hungry for dinner.  But I thought I could use some healthy food in my belly, so I had a hard-boiled egg and a handful of carrots:

Two days of over indulgence and I felt it this morning!  I was craving a bowl of oatmeal:

With banana and peanut butter.  I had a late breakfast and then headed out to work.  I was going straight from my sister’s house and didn’t pack anything for lunch, so I stopped by Publix on the way and got a Boars Head turkey wrap on whole wheat with lots of veggies:

After work, I went home and there was only one thing I wanted to do… Run!  It felt sooo good, I ran a half a mile longer than usual and probably could have gone farther.  I also did 90 crunches and 45 push ups.  I feel much better now.  For dinner, shrimp is what I was craving:

Shrimp pesto with tomatoes, over whole wheat pasta and a sprinkle of Parmesan Reggiano. So darn good!  I for dessert, my usual dark chocolate.  Now it’s off to the bubble bath.  Early morning meeting tomorrow, then it’s off to the beach, yipeeeee!
