This week is a short one for me and I’m SO excited for another long weekend with my family. It’s been a great holiday season but after this weekend I’m ready to get back to a schedule and some “healthier” eating. Do you agree?? I have been eating healthy about 85% of the time but I would like to bump it to 90% which means not randomly grabbing a leftover chocolate cookie to snack on after breakfast
I woke up starving Monday morning and the first thing I could think about was getting my belly full. I made 2 Scrambled Eggs with peppers & potatoes, 1/2 cup of coffee, and a glass of water. This meal never fails.
After Group Power I was STARVING and my body needed to refuel immediately. While I was packing up my stuff in the room I drank my protein shake and I ate the banana in the car!
Once I got home I made myself a piece of toast topped with avocado and egg whites. I also finished Ava’s eggs that were on her plate from breakfast.. I don’t waste any food.
Oh and this Chocolate chip cookie made it into my morning. Thank goodness they are officially GONE!
I headed back to the YMCA around 1015 to teach my Fit For Life class. It was a challenging workout for the group and everyone left feeling good. Once again my belly was rumbling and I decided I was going to make a quick lunch at home. I had the same thing as last week, go figure. It’ probably because I HATE deciding what to eat. When there’s stuff in the fridge I just grab it and eat it. Sometimes my laziness with food gets the best of me.
A chicken salad pita sandwich. With a side of veggie & cabbage soup. I apologize for no picture, I will blame my hunger on that one.
In the afternoon I opted for a string cheese, I gave a TINY piece to Cooper because he heard me open the cheese drawer and came running. I couldn’t say no. I also had some baby carrots and watermelon.
Dinner was my favorite meal of the day. Marc cooked dinner and basically surprised me with a delicious meal. I knew we were having steak but I didn’t know what else he put together. First I had some salad.
That was an appetizer because I was so hungry. It wasn’t fancy but it did the job.
Then we had steak with a balsamic reduction, roasted sun chokes, and parsnip fries!
It was healthy & tasty, my kinda meal. I’m pretty much all for Marc cooking. Whenever he cooks I know it’s going to taste amazing. I also love the fact that he cooked and cleaned up everything. I hate doing dishes so this was awesome, I felt very spoiled.
Because my night is never complete without some sort of snack. I cut up a nice size bowl of strawberries and also ate a random bowl of leftover mashed potatoes.
I guess since I only had veggies and meat for dinner my body was saying give me carbs. Or I just wanted them
Your turn: What’s something yummy you ate this week?
Are you looking forward to getting back on track in the New Year?
