Ryan comes tomorrow morning and we’re going to get started on the move that is sure to be the main event of the weekend. Eeeeek! I’m so excited to see him! It’s only been 3 weeks since he left but after living together all year, being apart that long has been really hard. At the same time though, I think in some ways it’s been good for me. I’ve been taking the time to work on individual issues I have needed to work on for quite some time, but would never have worked on if I wasn’t forced into it so I guess the time apart has it’s silver lining. I’m definitely not where I need to be with many things in my life, but I’m working on it! One of the main things I really need to work on is how anxious and stressed out I get over things that should be fun (like planning my wedding)- that one is coming along very very sloooooooooooowly. But hopefully it’s a comin’.
I didn’t get to bed as early as I hoped last night so this morning was another battle with my alarm clock. It kept telling me to wake up and I kept shouting obscenities at it. With no one there to kick me out of bed I rolled out 2 minutes before I had to leave the house. Naturally this meant breakfast was another grab and run affair. I assembled it (not that there was much to it) at my office- a container of fat free blueberry yogurt and an apple:
I actually had a pretty bad workout at the gym today for the first time in a while. It was my favorite steps class, but for some reason I just wasn’t feeling it. I did it though, along with arm, shoulder, and ab exercises. Meh.
Lunch was perfect for today’s cold and dreary day: a warm roasted veggie tamale a la Amy’s.
Plus a delicious grapefruit
Later in the afternoon my boss came into my office tempting me with a cookie. I had half (un-photographed). It was damn good and well worth it.
Dinner tonight is a real toughie to guess. That’s right. Despite the risk of boring you to tears, I had the same delicious veggie wrap again. I decided my taste buds were more important than your entertainment. Sorry!
And 2 kiwis + 2 strawberries for dessert
Alright guys, I’m going to start winding down. I’m sure it’ll take me a while to fall asleep tonight but sleep can’t come fast enough- when I open my eyes I’ll get to see my fiance!
It’s only a little past 7 and I can barely keep my eyes open! I am so totally and completely pooped after today’s crazy hectic workday. I’m really lucky with my job being flexible so I rarely work many hours straight- there’s always little breaks here and there for tea and random chit-chats with coworkers. But today was go go go from 7:30 on. After eating breakfast, I drove 1.5 hours to prison #1 and did interview #1. Then I drove another 1.5 hours to prison #2 for interviews #2, #3, and #4 which took a grand total of 4 hours. And then it was another 1 hour drive back home. I am seriously considering going to bed at like 8.
I decided I needed a really filling breakfast to give me a good headstart on fueling me for the long day. So oats it was Luckily it was gray and dreary out unlike the really warm weather we’ve been having lately so the oatmeal sounded really appealing. I decided on peanut butter and jelly oats, an idea I’ve seen on another blog but I can’t find the entry to it right now…I think it was Lauren’s blog? Either way, thanks to whoever it was for the genius creation- it was so yummy! For my bowl I used: 1/3 cup oats, 1/3 cup water, 1/3 cup skim milk, 1 banana, 1 T Barney butter, 1 T strawberry jam.
I ate about 3/4 of this, and even that took a lot of effort! It tasted delicious, but it’s also insanely filling. I think when I add mix-ins like nut butters I really can only handle 1/4 cup of oats…
I did the best I could with lunch. It had to be eaten on the drive from prison #1 to prison #2 so it needed to be easy to drive while eating. You know what? Not too many healthy foods (or at least foods you can put together into nutritionally balanced MEALS) are driving friendly. I did the best I could with a bag of soy crisps, a south beach diet bar, and an apple:
So you know how I said dinner last night was amazing and you’d be seeing it again real soon? Here you go! It was my dinner again tonight…
And with that I’m off kiddos. Hopefully I’ll be back much more well rested tomorrow!
Hey everyone- hope your memorial day weekends were great!I had the perfect balance of a part relaxing, part productive 3 day weekend. I packed and moved some stuff to our new place, went to a pool part, hiked with an adorable toddler and puppy, and went out to eat lots of food with the wonderful Sue. Ok, maybe more relaxing than productive, but I still did some work! Today I hit the ground running hard, and had a super productive day at work. It’s so much easier to get stuff done knowing there is only 4 weekdays! I think this is something emplyers should seriously look into. Tomorrow is going to be crazy busy and productive as well- I have 2 separate prisons to go to for a total of 4 visits (1 at the first prison, 3 at the second). The catch is that the prisons are about 60 miles away from each other, and 70-75 miles away from my home, so there is a lot of driving and visiting to squeeze into one little workday! I have no doubt I’ll be working overtime tomorrow
Back to today, I woke up to what was a brilliantly filling breakfast: 1% cottage cheese and an apple-cranberry bran muffin (the TJ’s kind that’s only 100 calories but 13 grams of fiber!). My plate progression:
Then of course I had to crumble the muffin:
And then I thought the cottage cheese could be like frosting so I mixed it all up:
I thought I would LOVE this combo, but to be honest it was a bit too dense for me. I really should have added fruit to lighten it up. Despite it being quite light calorie-wise, I could only finish about 3/4 tops and it held me over forever. I think grapes (or some other kind of juicy fruit) would have been the perfect addition to this to make it a really satisfying meal for my tastebuds- it felt a little too dry…
After lunch I headed over to do some jail visits and returned in time to gobble some subway for my lunch. I had my usual- turkey and every veggies (except olives) with vinegar- no cheese or mayo. I love how the vinegar makes this sandwich so moist while still keeping it healthy, but i think I’ve been enjoying it a little too often…my wallet and waistline both like me to cook more often.
Dinner was freaking brilliantly good, and oh so simple. I found some wonderful whole wheat tortillas at Shaw’s that are only 70 calories but boast 6 grams of fiber! That was the base. For the innards (ew, what a gross word) I roasted up some garlicky veggies- eggplant, onion, squash, and bell pepper. While that was a cookin, I made some “mockamole” that I read about on Tina’s, Elina’s, Shannon’s, and Lauren’s blogs (the links to their posts are here, here, here, and here). This is a birlliant concept- mix guacamole with peas to cut down on fat and add nutrients. Plus, it lends an awesome texture and delicate sweetness to the guacamole, which I loved. Why has no one thought of this before?? After I finished making the mockamole, I melted a piece of fat free cheese onto one of the tortillas and spread it with the deliciousness:
Pile with roast veggies on top and viola!
Holy deliciousness. I piled too many veggies in to wrap it up, so a knife and fork it was. That and my hands You will soooooo being seeing this again soon. Like, probably tomorrow.
Alright folks, I’m going to start winding down and prepping myself for the craziness that is sure to ensue tomorrow with all those visits. Keep your fingers crossed for me!
Hey guys! I’m really tired tonight and dying to get to sleep so I’m going to try to make this post quick but we all know how that usually works out. Marina left this afternoon and tomorrow morning we have friends from DC flying in and staying with us for a couple of days, followed by Ryan’s sister flying in a few hours after our friends fly out and then me going to Israel for a vacation. I’m looking forward to all of it, but I gotta say that last one is reallyyyy exciting.
I had a ton of really delicious food today. In fact, everything I put in my mouth was pretty fantastic. Love days like that. But let’s start at the beginning- for breakfast Marina made me a smoothie she’s been raving about. It’s made with soy milk, 100% orange juice, avocado, and honey. This combo was absolutely delicious and you’ll definitely be seeing me make this again!
I was a good worker bunny all through the morning. Before hitting up the gym during my lunch break, I fueled myself with an orange and 1/2 of a PB cookie larabar:
A really nice thing happened at the gym today- a girl who takes a lot of the same classes as I do (steps, bootcamp) came up to me in the locker room and said “Hey, I just want to tell you that you look really really great. You look just fantastic.” We’ve been taking the same classes for a while so I know she saw me when I was a bit heavier than I am now and I can only assume she was comparing the then to the now. Either way, that very simple comment completely made my day. I love kind words from strangers-something so effortless has such a big effect, and I wish I could tell her how grateful I am that she took the time to think to say that to me, I wish I could tell her how happy it made me. Unfortunately, I can’t take a compliment so I just turned beat red and mumbled thank you under my breath. I really need to work on that. Her comment really pumped me up and motivated me to work soooooo hard in steps class today- I can’t remember the last time I was so sweaty. I also worked on arms (biceps and triceps) and abs.
I came back to a fantastic lunch of dhal (indian lentils) that I made per the recipe that Sue and I learned when we took the vegetarian Indian cooking class. Actually it was leftover from last night’s dinner that I made which included both the palak paneer (Indian cheese in spinach) and green mung dhal (lentils). There are TONS of leftovers (I cooked for a small army for some reason) so you’ll be seeing a lot of them to come I’m sure. I’m more than happy to eat them though, because both dishes came out delicious. I was pretty darn proud of myself. Oh, be warned that this doesn’t photograph very pretty. But when it tastes this good, it’s worth the sacrafice:
I ate about half of this- lentils are so filling! Of course I always have room for a little somethin’ somethin’ sweet, so I finished of lunch was some super juicy pineapple:
I was a bit munchy when I got home from work and dinner wasn’t going to be until late-ish tonight so I snack on some bell pepper and hummus to tide me over:
For dinner I made a recipe from another class Sue and I took together, this time the low fat, low carb class we took. I finally found ground chicken at the supermarket, so I decided to give those delicious spicy chicken cakes a whirl. Can I just say what a great decision that was? These turned out fan-freakin-tastic. Sue (and anyone else in the Boston area that’s interested), we definitely need to sign up for more classes! I served my chicken cake along side a salad:
The chicken cake was pretty big, so I ate just a little less than half. And allllll of the salad What a wonderful dinner- Ryan gave it a big thumbs up too.
Oh, I’ve been meaning to mention this- for about the next week or so you’ll be seeing a very noticeable decline of whole grains in my food intake. This is because it is Passover so I can’t eat bread or bread products (i.e.- pasta, oatmeal, pita, etc). Therefore my whole grains are limited to things like rice, etc. Oh, and whole wheat matza which I need to buy more of ASAP. So just FYI, I’m not banning grains from my diet even though it may seem like it. I’ll have to find creative ways to keep getting in lots of fiber- fruits and veggies are a great start but I’ll try to think of other additions. Any ideas?
And with that I’m off to bed. Night guys, thanks for reading!
Hey guys! I have just a very brief moment until Marina gets home and we go out to grab some dinner so I thought I’d try to get my post in right now…It’s going to be a quickie but at least there’ll be one
I stayed up really late last night chatting and catching up with Marina and finally forced myself to go to bed at nearly 2 am. Ugh, I am not used to these late nights and my body did NOT want to get out of bed this morning. So breakfast was a repeat of yesterday’s grab and run out the door yogurt that I ate in the office:
A few hours later I had a pre-workout snack of an orange:
I pushed myself really hard at the gym today, running a fast mile (for me, not in general) as a warm up and then taking a hardcore bootcamp class. My legs were shaking in the shower
I came back pretty ravenous so I had leftover tofu veggie stir-fry for my lunch. By the way, those things that look like noodles are actually bean sprouts. And it was just as good today as yesterday even though it didn’t photograph very pretty.
And an apple to round off the meal:
I’m not bringing my camera to dine with us tonight (sorry) but I can tell you what I’ll be eating! We’re going to a Burmese restaurant in Allston called Yoma. Burmese food is one of my all time favorite cuisines and when we are back home in San Francisco Marina and I often go to one of our favorite restaurants in the whole city: Burma Superstar. I was dying craving it last year and after some research found that Allston also has a Burmese restaurant so of course I had to try it. It’s very very very different from the food in SF, but still incredibly tasty so of course I have to bring Marina there. I’m planning on ordering the green mango salad which is insanely delicious. But it’s also kind of small, so maybe I’ll convince Marina to split a soup dish with me as well.
Alright guys, this may be the shortest post EVER but I have to run. Hope you guys are having a good Tuesday!
Today has been all about rushing around trying to get things done. Ever since I overslept this morning it’s been go go go nonstop, and it’s not over yet. I could barely drag myself out of bed since I had such a late night last night (well, late for me for a work night) so I snoozed my alarm like 50 times and before I knew it was 10 minutes before I had to be at work and I was still in my pajamas. Good thing my office is so laid back. I didn’t want to push my luck though, so I brushed my teeth, threw on some clothes, grabbed this yogurt from the fridge and bolted out the door. And thus, breakfast was born:
I had a glorious reunion with the gym today after taking the 3 days I was on vacation in South Carolina off. A 1 mile run on the treadmill as a warm up (my fastest to date!) and then a wonderfully sweaty spin class. Oh exercise, how I love you (usually). Well, maybe not YOU exactly, but I love how you make me feel
Lunch was a can of Amy’s low fat vegan split pea soup. I ate about 3/4 of the can:
And I polished lunch off with an orange:
After work I had a lot to take care of. One of my absolute best friends is flying into Boston tonight and staying with me for a few days and I wanted to make sure the house was clean and stocked full of goodies for her. Our place wasn’t too messy, but I needed to unpack and take care of cleaning up some little things here and there. After taking care of that it was off to the grocery store to stock up on fruits, veggies, hummus, and other little treats- I want to make sure there’s plenty of yummyness for her to enjoy while she stays here! I got home around 7:30, and was definitely ready to eat! For dinner I whipped myself up a quick tofu and veggie stir fry that was actually really yummy- yay I cooked a good tofu dish!
Ryan had trader joe’s organic mac and cheese for his dinner and I helped him out a bit with that
And then there was dessert. 1/2 of an apple and a dollop of PB & Co Dark Chocolate Dreams. I actually shockingly didn’t eat too very much of the Dark Chocolate Dreams at all- I thought I would want it but after my weekend away from fruit all I wanted was some nice fresh fruit on it’s own so I mainly just stuck to the apple:
After dinner I set off to work making Marina’s (my friend) favorite cookies- I want to be able to greet her at the airport with them. Oh, and I started preparing stuff for the Passover seder we’re going to have at our house on Wed. night. For those who don’t know, that’s the traditional passover meal and ritual that Jews have the first 2 nights of Passover. A lot of foods are symbolic and so it’s important to me to make at least those. Today I chopped up apples and walnuts and boiled an egg. A little at a time will make things less hectic, right?
I’m not sure how posting will work when Marina is here. I’ll try to do my best to post as much as possible but I’m not quite sure how it’s going to work yet so please bear with me. For now, I’m off to get more done! I have about an hour until I have to leave to pick Marina up from the airport!
Hello from the Myrtle Beach, South Carolina airport! Yay for free wireless internet at airports- I think all airports should start adopting this practice. I had a little extra time so i figured I’d start writing this post, though I probably won’t be able to upload the pictures and post until we’re back home in Boston around 1 am- I’m definitely going to have a hard time staying awake at work tomorrow.
Before getting to the specifics of today’s food, I want to take just a minute to talk about the food in Myrtle Beach generally and how insanely difficult it has been to try to eat relatively healthy here. Now I’m not sure if it’s South Carolina in general or just Myrtle Beach but holy crap whole grains just DO NOT exist here. Everytime I asked if they could replace white bread with whole wheat I got a blank stare. Most of the food here is so greasy and fruits and vegetables, if you are able to find them, are always an afterthought as opposed to something you build your meal around as I’m used to doing. Finding salad is a feat and if you succeed it will probably be pretty wilty and gross (as mine was today). Don’t get me wrong- I had an AMAZING weekend, but the food was definitely not the highlight. I tried to do the best I could but holy crap am I looking forward to a whole lotta fresh produce in the week to come
We slept in pretty late today and then rushed a bit to check out of our hotel room in time. By the time all was said and done it was around noon and although we hadn’t eaten breakfast we were ready for lunch. I tried to eat my leftover salad from yesterday but it was really pretty gross and I didn’t think it was fresh enough to eat- thinking back we did walk around with it for a good 6 hours before we got back to our hotel after dinner and put it in the fridge so that makes sense. Anyway we found a little cafe and I ordered a salad with grilled chicken, dressing on the side. It wasn’t good. I ate almost half:
Oh, I forgot to mention but before my salad came out I had some peanuts. That was the one kinda cool thing about this place- instead of bread they had a bucket of peanuts on the table to munch on:
I consoled myself with that disappointment of a lunch by getting a little kiddie cup of frozen yogurt (same as Friday’s):
We played miniature golf again and I got a hole in one! For those of you who are like me when it comes to golf knowledge, it means I hit it in the hole with just one putt!
For dinner I got a caprese panini- chicken, mozzarella, tomato, and basil. I asked for it on whole wheat bread but of course the guy didn’t know what I was talking about and said they didn’t have any. I also asked for vegetables on the side instead of fries which apparently in Myrtle Beach means broccoli soaked in butter. I ate ½ of the panini and avoided the broccoli and as soon as I discovered it was buttery.
Ryan ordered a chocolate milkshake with his meal- I stole a sip or two
Dessert was one dark chocolate almond cluster:
At the airport I munched on a Gala apple I managed to find and buy earlier I the day. Mmmmmm fruit.
It’s super late now and I need to get to bed ASAP. I’ll try to work on uploading the rest of the pictures from our vacation tomorrow and then put up a link so you guys can see them. Thanks for all the comments so far- I’m glad you like the photos! Night!
Hey all! So as you probably gathered from my title today was the best day ever. Like of my whole life. Ever. I started off the day playing with tigers and monkeys and all sorts of other cool animals- it was incredible. We literally had 1 month old tiger cubs crawling around all over our laps (one licked me!!!!) and held orangutans and petted a huge African elephant named Bubbles and that’s not even half of it! I’m going to try to make an online album with all the pictures ASAP and then post a link so that anyone interested can check it out. Keep an eye out!
On to food…Can I just say how hard it is to find healthy food here? I tried so hard. It’s like they don’t cater to health AT ALL. Maybe because it’s a resort town and you’re not supposed to care about that on vacation? Or maybe being from California/Massachusetts hasn’t exactly given me a fair representation of how the rest of the country eats? Either way it’s been an uphill battle. We went down to our hotel restaurant for breakfast and the healthiest thing I could find to order was a bagel with cream cheese. So that’s what I got. Of course I asked for a whole wheat one and they didn’t have it. Nor did they have light cream cheese. But the other options were white flour pancakes/waffles or greasy eggs so I went for the bagel- not exactly health food but it felt “cleaner.”
Ryan and I also got a plate of fruit to share. First fruit I’ve had down here. And trust me I’ve searched far and wide. Oh how I miss my fruit.
After breakfast we headed over to the preservation station tour and after that was over they fed us cheese/crackers and ice cream. I passed on the ice cream but had a couple of crackers with cheese. That was “lunch” since it held me over ok and I really wanted to head to the beach after we got back. Sorry no photo of crackers and cheese since there were no cameras allowed on the tour (they had a photographer follow us around and take photos of everything that we could later order a photo CD of). The beach was very nice but it was still a bit too cold to swim so instead I napped in the sand and enjoyed the sunshine on my back
Since lunch was very light we were hungry for dinner early. I was craving a nice big salad. Summertime and warm weather always puts me in a salad mood. We headed over to a place called Tripp’s not too far away from our hotel.
I had some bread that they brought to the table to start the meal off right. I took a photo but the internet connection is so slow at this hotel I don’t think it’s worth loading. You all know what bread looks like, right?
For dinner I ordered the cajun chicken salad w/ dressing on the side. This had mixed greens, red onions, tomatoes, red pepper, grated cheese, cajun chicken, and spicy roasted nuts. Yum! I ate about half and took the other 1/2 to go- I’ll probably have it for lunch tomorrow.
Oh, I forgot to mention but on the walk to the restaurant Ryan and I stopped off at an amazing candy store called “It’Sugar.” I overheard a little girl in the store describe my sentiment perfectly: “WOW, this is AWESOME.” They had a castle made of jelly beans!
We got 2 bags of candy that we’ve been munching on throughout the night. There’s still a lot left since we got a ton of candy but this was a very nice treat today
After dinner we played miniature golf which was super fun. Ryan said I kicked butt! I’ve never played before and I must admit I did pretty awesome. Which made me like it. If I didn’t do good I probably wouldn’t have liked it as much.
Then we decided to go see a movie but the movie we wanted to see wasn’t starting for another 2 hours so we went to an arcade to pass the time. Aside from racing car games (my favorite- weird I know) we played Skee-Ball.
And won some tickets for prizes. This made me excited.
I chose to get a little orange seahorse:
Don’t worry, Ryan got to pick out prizes too. He got 2 little ninjas. Here’s him being a ninja himself while holding them:
Ok, maybe not quite a ninja. But he tried.
After we were done with the arcade we meandered around until our movie started, watched the movie, and walked back to our hotel. All in all, a pretty freaking perfect day.
Hi all! Ryan and I arrived in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina super late last night and by the time we got my bag and got to the hotel I was wayyyyyyyy too tired to post. I crashed and slept really well on our king size bed! I have decided this is the only way to sleep and we HAVE to get a king ASAP- it was so wonderful having all that space to stretch out
Our first day here has been wonderful, even though it started out kind of rough. We slept in super late, woke up nice and refreshed, took our time getting ready and out of the hotel room, and then wandered off in search of food. Unfortunately we wandered the wrong way and ended up along some highway with no food or taxis or anything remotely helpful in sight. Now anyone who knows me will be able to confirm that I am cranky when I’m hungry and Ryan experienced this firsthand today. Seriously my mom made fun of me for it all the time when I was growing up because she said it was typically men who were so dependent on food for happiness. Well, not me. I hate being hungry- I just feel weak and lightheaded and annoyed by everything. We walked around for like 2 hours (I am not exaggerating) before we FINALLY found food and by that point I was chewing off Ryan’s arm. We went into the first place we saw because honestly by that point I’d eat ANYTHING. The first place we saw ended up being Sr. Frog’s- I took this picture of the tablecloth:
As we were deciding what to get, our waiter brought a plate of nachos to our table. I told him we didn’t order nachos but he insisted it was on the house. Now normally I’m really grateful for free food but nachos aren’t exactly health food and with them sitting right in front of me and me being so hungry they were hard to resist. I tried and failed. Just to give you some perspective, it was almost 2 pm and it was the first thing I’d been able to put in my mouth all day. So I gave in and shared them with Ryan:
For my entree I ordered the taco salad but didn’t eat any of the taco shell. It also came with steak strips on top of it but I didn’t eat those either- just didn’t notice that the salad came with them when I ordered it and wasn’t in a meat mood so I pushed them to the side. The salad itself that I ate was pretty yummy but nothing mind blowing- mixed greens, carrots, pico de gallo salsa, and some cheese. I ate about half the salad and packed the other half to go:
After lunch Ryan and I walked around some more before heading back to our hotel to play in the pool and sunbathe. Tough life, right? Then we went up to our hotel room to relax for a bit. This is when I discovered that I got a bit sunburned on our walk this morning- oops!
So off we went to buy aloe vera/sunscreen and enjoy a walk along the beach. It was beautiful out! Here’s Ryan and his first experience with the Atlantic ocean:
Dinner was the other half of the salad that I had left over from lunch- again no steak or tortilla since I told the waiter I didn’t want those when I asked him to pack it up for me. I kind of wanted something different but I didn’t want to waste food or money so I sucked it up and ate it. But to console myself I also got some frozen yogurt Fair trade off, right?
This is vanilla chocolate fudge frozen yogurt and the little kiddie cup is only 90 calories and well worth every last one! I think I’ll definitely be having more of this tomorrow and the day after- the weather is BEAUTIFUL and what better way to celebrate than frozen yogurt?
Ryan and I mapped it and we walked around 7 miles or so today. Not bad for a vacation day! I know walking isn’t like an intense workout or anything, but I’m glad it’s vacation and we still did quite a bit of moving.
Tomorrow morning is our tigers escapade. I’m going to bed soon so I can have plenty of energy to play with the little cubs! Night guys, thanks for reading!
I am sooooooo excited right now because Ryan and I take off for South Carolina tomorrow! I kind of can’t believe it’s happening- we saw these tiger cubs at a fair in Boston and I told Ryan I REALLY wanted to go to South Carolina to play with them. He said ok, but I thought it would be one of those things that wouldn’t really ever happen, you know? I am a HUGE animal lover so I can’t even explain how happy this is going to make me. When we went to Hawaii a few summers ago and played/swam with dolphins I had the biggest smile on my face for the full 45 minutes- my face hurt for like the next week.
Ok, has all the animal talk bored you yet? On to the food then. For breakfast I toasted Arnold’s sandwich thins, spread a light laughing cow cheese wedge on each side, and then went into the fridge for some lox and saw that it was…dun dun dun….completely gone. SOMEBODY in the house finished all the lox with his friends when they were visiting and didn’t tell me! SOMEBODY owes me another massage because he ruined breakfast:
I also finished off the last two strawberries in the box- no worries because I have another one waiting for me!
After breakfast I drove out to the prison for a visit. I munched on some baby carrots before going in:
I was in the prison for a quite a while- I didn’t get out until almost 5 pm! Needless to say I missed lunch. I grabbed an apple out of my purse as soon as I got in my car and devoured it on the ride back- I was hungry!
Ryan wasn’t home when I got back and I knew dinner was going to be later than usual so I searched for something to hold me over but not ruin my appetite. I ended up grabbing 1/2 of a mini trader joe’s whole wheat pita and some sabra hummus:
For dinner I decided to make fish tacos. Except we didn’t have whole wheat tortillas on hand and I didn’t want to go to the store or eat white tortillas. So instead I just dumped what I would inside my tacos inside a bowl and ate it that way- spicy grilled tilapia, lettuce, salsa, guacamole, fat free greek yogurt “sour cream,” and some shredded japaeno jack cheese. I ate about 1/2 of what you see pictured:
And of course some dessert- a 100 calorie Slim-A-Bear ice cream:
And thats it! I gotta go pack because I haven’t started yet…Night guys!
Edit- my asshole friends in DC thought it would be a funny april fools joke to order me 2 large cheese dominos pizzas and breadsticks and have the pizza guy ring my doorbell and me not know what’s going on and have to pay for pizza i didnt order. i am not amused. especially since i tried to resist eating pizza and failed. grrrrrrrrrrrr.
