Tuesday breakfast was eaten in the car on the way to work:
Met with another bride, organized my new office, pictures to come soon. And had lunch at my desk:
Salad with chick peas and cold boiled potatoes. After work, I ran some errands until it was spin class time. Spin class is for crazy people by the way. It was my first time. I thought I was pretty fit. But, boy was I wrong. After less than a minute into the 45 minute class, I thought “what in the ‘bleep’ did I get myself into?”, but I couldn’t walk out after only a minute. Five minutes in, my water bottle popped out of its holder and emptied onto the floor. After 20 minutes, and feeling like death was approaching, I had to briefly get off my bike to fill up my water bottle. The instructor said now would be a good time to quit if I was not feeling up to it. Oh no she did not! Did she know how rebellious I am, just tell me not to do something, or quit, and I’ll show you! I hopped back on that bike and raced through the valley of the shadow of death. After it was finally over, I walked my shaky legs outta there with my head held high, and my clothes soaked.
I refueled with dinner:
Chicken on the grill, taters, broccoli, and a slice of leftover pizza.
Then as I went to bed, I could feel my leg muscles throbbing and aching, and was thankful for a wonderful hubby who rubbed them til I fell asleep.
Then today, Wednesday, I woke up craving no bake cookies my mom always used to make growing up. Basically, they are oats, peanut butter, cocoa powder, butter and sugar. I improvised for a tasty healthy breakfast:
Oatmeal with a square of chocolate shredded over top and some peanut butter, and flax seed. A naner and hard-boiled egg on the side. Today was laundry day, it is rare that I have every bit of laundry but the clothes on our backs clean, but today I accomplished that, as well as a boat load of ironing.
Salad with potatoes, cucumber, celery, roasted red peppers, and leftover chicken. My lunch salads fill me up, but in exactly 3 hours I am hungry again. So a big snack was in order:
Hard boiled egg whites, carrots, celery , and hummus, and a slice of whole wheat with mango jam. Look at my little eggs-periment:
A little hummus with a squirt of mustard on top makes an interesting deviled egg. I think it would be even better if I mixed the mustard with the hummus, and maybe some other seasonings and sprinkled a little paprika on top. I’m also thinking about what I could do with avocados. I think I will challenge myself and all of you to come up with some healthy, different ideas for deviled eggs. How does that sound?
Dinner was another impromptu meal:
Shrimp pesto over whole wheat noodles, scallops, and mixed veggies. Yum!
And for dessert, I found these little cuties:
Little sorbets in fruit shells, this one is pomegranate lemon sorbet in a lemon half, so dang good, and low in calories too. Now I must say good night and go watch So You Think You Can Dance.
