Friday – April 2, 2014
Typically Fridays end with a few glasses of wine and a bowl of pasta, but not tonight! Oddly, I am excited to take this weekend off. It feels good to work towards something again. I found myself getting to a place where it was becoming routine to indulge on the weekends, even if I wasn’t particularly in the mood. Moving forward, indulgences are only for when it is actually worth it. Just because I have a few glasses of wine, doesn’t mean I need to abandon my lifestyle.
Rather than hit the town, I hit the gym for some Friday night cardio.
Breakfast: What do you think?
Lunch: 4 cups of Skinny Pop
Snack: 1 cup of grapes
Dinner: Needed a boost of protein, so I had a large chicken breast.
Beverages: Water… all day, duh.
Workout: 40 minutes on the elliptical
Saturday – April 3, 2014
Just because I am still eating healthy doesn’t mean I need to sacrifice eating deliciously. I think the best thing that came from today was my Quinoa Fried Rice. I said it before, and I will say it again, incorporating Asian flavors into your dishes is a great way to add flavor without calories into your recipe. I was on the road today, but managed to whip up this dish before hand. Prep work goes a long way!
(I really wasn’t hungry)
Breakfast: 4 Cups of Skinny Pop & 1 cup of grapes
Lunch: 12 cadbury milk chocolate eggs. Whatever, it is the weekend and I ate them proportionately.
Dinner: Quinoa Fried Rice! Don’t let the name fool you, nothing is fried and there is no rice in this meal.
Looks great right? Click HERE for the recipe
Beverages: Coffee with some skim milk and water.
Workout: I was traveling, but squeezed in 20 minutes of cardio… I got bored. Hey, something is more than nothing, right?
While I am getting really sick of documenting my days, and even more sick of writing these blog entries, things are good!
