Breakfast: Discovered my office cafeteria has hardboils eggs for $1 a piece, perfecto! Two of those plus 1/2 an avocado.
Snack: Raisins and cashews
Lunch: Greek salad with grilled chicken (hold the feta) and olive oil dressing. Peaches and mango for a dessert.
Snack: Apple Pie Larabar
Dinner: Went out to Flex Mussels and found a mussel dish made with olive oil, tomatoes, peppers and basil. Had a side of sauteed (in oilve oil) veggies. I was def the annoying person that waiters hate. He looked at me like I was crazy when I asked what the veggies were made with, as if it was such a crazy questions. Bonus points to me for not eating the truffle fries that were ordered for the table!
Workout: 45 minute cycle
Breakfast: Coffee with coconut milk, Rx Bar
Snack: Apple chips
Lunch: Was at a bar to watch the Michigan game and ordered the lamest bar meal ever, grilled chicken on a plate! Literally slices of plain grilled chicken on wilted lettuce. Wasn’t bad but the huge basket of waffle fries was taunting me at the next table.
Snack: Dried mango, dried apricots, 2 dates
Dinner: Almond cashew coated chicken with a side of sauteed cruceferous mix and roasted butternut squash. Really tasty. Plus some after dinner homemade pickles.
Workout: 6 mile run in Central park
Feelings: Today I actually felt really great! I haven’t really worn jeans all summer but wore some today and they feel looser than I remember. I just feel clean and good. As a splenda addict I kinda can’t believe I haven’t had any in 13 days. This week I came across more ordering out and am getting a little bit better at checking with the waiter about my food prep but I’m surprised by how confused they are by it. I would think with all the food allergies around these questions would be pretty common.
I did a big grocery shopping trip so I can be better prepped for the week ahead as my hours seem much more intense at my new job.
Goals for the week ahead: less snacking, less fruit (more veggies!)
Let’s keep going!
