Hello everyone. Hope you're all doing fantastically well today. My journey towards not loathing Mondays at work, eating right and staying fit traveled down a windy road today. It started out rough this morning but it turned out to be a lovely day. This morning started out with one of my favorite healthy, chocolaty, mushy, warm and decadent breakfasts. Coco, cinnamon and splenda sweetened old fashioned oats with a banana. Oh so good. Scary looking but don't let that fool you. It's yum yum!
For lunch today, I enjoyed a tasty sandwich made with Arnold Sandwich Thins, turkey, lettuce, mild green pepper and a few squirts of Wishbone Ranch dressing. I like this ranch spray. Just a few squirts is plenty to add a nice little blast of flavor to any sandwich without the guilt of mayo or horsey sauce etc... I also enjoyed a plum that was purchased at the Farm the other day. It was nice and crisp and sweet. I was stuffed!
Ann and I ran to Super Walmart today at lunch. I dislike Walmart in general very much but this trip was awesome. They sell four packs of Oiko's Greek yogurt for $4. Awesome price. I stocked up on that and purchased a few more items (Avocado, LOVE IT, chocolate animal crackers and some herbs and seasonings). Then we sped back to work.
My pre-workout afternoon snack was a handful of raw almonds with some grapes. Man, I love raw almonds. So tasty!
It was cardio day at the gym today, something I have been dreading since I woke up. Usually I'm all fired up and READY TO GO to the gym. Not today! I blame this weekend and the NO NO beers I consumed on Sunday. Stupid tasty beers! I curse you for your awesomeness! We were there for roughly an hour and were sweat covered, exhausted and WILD looking by the time we left. HA!
For dinner I took a leftover chicken breast from last night, chopped it up, seasoned it with a little bit of taco seasoning mix and reheated it on the stove for a few minutes. While the chicken was warming up I cut up some green onions, lettuce, red pepper and grape tomatoes. Using two (La Tortilla) tortillas, I made healthy quesadillas. I placed one in a large frying pan, topped it with fat free cheese, the taco flavored chicken, red peppers, green onion, a small amount of canned black beans and a little more cheese. I then placed the second tortilla on top and cooked it for just a few minutes on each side. When they were done I cut them with a pizza slicer and topped it with shredded lettuce, tomato, HOT mango habanero salsa and some fat free sour cream. I was craving Mexican Food today and this did the trick.
For a snack later I enjoyed a large cup of peach tee and some of those AMAZING chocolate animal crackers that I picked up at lunch. You can't even eat them without a smile on your face. YEAH! They are THAT good!
Now it's time to start season two of House MD. Can you believe we watched the whole first season in just a week? Insane. Anyways, goodnight everyone. Tomorrow is another day! ;)
