Happy Thursday and Happy Cinco De Mayo everyone! Do any of you have any big plans? If so, what are they? (drinking
tons of a margarita?) Today started out like any other–got ready for work and hopped on the bus to the city. I started off my day with some Fage greek yogurt mixed with some Cascadian Farm Cinnamon Crunch Cereal. I must confess, I am seriously obsessed with this cereal.
About two hours later I. Was. STARVING. So I went out and bought this…
I think I need a little more substance with my breakfasts–overnight oats always does the trick but I’m thinking of incorporating eggs a bit more. Thoughts?? Do any of you eat eggs for breakfast more often than not? It’s sounding like a good idea…
I was pretty pumped when lunch rolled around..
I came up with a pretty good salad if I do say so myself. Into the mix went:
-About 2 cups of lettuce (I think I used Italian Blend?)
-About 3 oz of grilled turkey breast, chopped
-About 1/4 cups grapes sliced in half
-One stick of Sargento light string cheese, chopped into little cubes
-Splash of olive oil and balsamic vinaigrette
-Optional: A bit of salt and pepper to taste
*Directions: Toss all ingredients together… BAM!
I intended to have those raspberries on the side… but they eventually made their way into the salad combo as well.
Once I got home, I was greeted by the friendliest of faces:
Okay, so they weren’t actually looking at the camera, but in my defense, every time I arrive home, they just want to snuggle in my lap! Be still, my heart.
Okay enough with Spanky and Mopsey–onto dinner! Dinner was super simple and delicious. I decided to create a breakfast burrito, but instead of the typical ‘eggs and cheese’ breakfast burrito, mine consisted of fat free cottage cheese!
This super easy wrap includes:
-A Joseph’s Lavash Wrap
-2 tbsp any sugar free jam you prefer + 1 tbsp low fat cream cheese
-1/2 cup fat free pineapple cottage cheese
-2 tbsp crushed walnuts
*Directions: Wrap up and devour!
I enjoyed my dinner alongside some watermelon and cantaloupe. This was truly the perfect Spring time dinner!
After work, I began thinking about honesty. I want to be 100% honest in my blog. In my everyday life I am the most honest person you will meet — I can easily tell someone my opinion and/or will let you know what I’m feeling at any given moment. I need to be more honest with myself, though, about what I am eating. I’d say about 70% of the time I
scarf down eat very nutritious foods. Sometimes I over-do it. Over-do by eating healthy you say? No, I over-do it in the areas where I’m snacking here, eating a hard candy there. I’m not being totally honest with myself about the ‘odds and ends’ of what it means to be healthy. Or healthy in my life at least. This June I have one of my best friends weddings, in which I am a bridesmaid and I want to look dang good ! So for the next 4 weeks, I am pledging to be totally honest! It’s time for me to reign myself in a little and take a break from the ‘oh I just stuck that spoon in the peanut butter again’ type thing. This doesn’t mean I’m not going to have fun OR deprive myself of the occasional indulgence–heck no! It just means I am going to be more ‘aware’… and with this, I am totally satisfied
Do you ever feel like you need to ‘get a grip’ on what you’re eating or drinking? What usually helps you to get your habits back into perspective?
