I have had a pretty uneventful week. There hasn’t really been anything to interesting or exciting going on. It’s just been a normal week, so I thought I would share with you what is normal for me.
After eating so much junk over the weekend, I was for some clean eating and detoxing. I prepped all of my food on Sunday, so I had all of my breakfasts and lunches ready to go. I started each day this week with a Dannon Light and Fight Greek Apple Pie Flavor Yogurt.
I did mix it up a little one day this week and ate a Greek vanilla with chocolate on top yogurt.
While I’m eating my yogurt, I am usually browsing Pinterest. I found this really cool race bib display one morning. I want to make one of these for my bibs!
For lunch each day I ate a salad. I used a Spinach, Kale, and Arugula blend and topped it with grilled veggies and chicken. I did not like the Skinny Girl Poppyseed dressing on this salad. It just tasted really funny with the kale and arugula. I like it with romaine lettuce. So, I ate the Skinny Girl Balsamic dressing the rest of the week.
Do you ever have days where you are just hungry? I mean like nothing fills you up, and you are starving all day? That’s how I was on Tuesday. I ate my breakfast, and then a couple hours later my stomach was growling! I ate a half of a granola bar and then lunch, and a little while after that the stomach was still growling. It was like a bottomless pit! I hate when it’s like that. I feel like I snack and eat more than normal, and I don’t like that. I think get like that when I don’t eat much the day before. On Monday, I was so upset from my doctor’s visit that I had no appetite. I had a small bowl of cereal for dinner and I woke up hungry on Tuesday.
Tuesday night, we practiced shooting our bows until a storm blew in. We went in, but it never actually rained.
Jeremy wanted breakfast for dinner Tuesday night, and I won’t ever turn that down! So, we fixed scrambled eggs, biscuits, sausage, and bacon. Jake waited patiently for me to drop something!
After this meal, I was finally full!
On Wednesday, I got some funny texts from my best friend. She is pregnant and has had some morning sickness. She was telling me that if another person told her to try saltines that she was going to punch them! That made me laugh out loud! I feel bad for her because the sickness has been hanging on for a while now. She also told me that she was craving cookies. So, I went to the bakery and bought her some cookies, and then delivered them to her house.
She was so excited!! They were fresh out of the oven and smelled heavenly! So, of course I got some to take home.
I did eat a cookie Wednesday night, and I don’t even feel bad about it because it was that good! They were chocolate chip with milk chocolate chips – so decadent! It was so rich, so I know it was full of fat, but just one won’t hurt me! I sent the rest to my father-in-law so I wouldn’t be tempted!
Wednesday night, I fixed grilled turkey sandwiches for dinner. I forgot to take pictures, I was REALLY tired! I used Sara Lee 45 calorie Multigrain bread, microwave ready bacon, turkey slices, Sargento Ultra Thin 45 calorie mild cheddar, and Hidden Valley fat free ranch. I put the bread on a cookie sheet and put in in the oven under the broiler and toasted both sides. While I was doing that, I put the turkey in a skillet and cooked it until it was hot. Then I spread fat free ranch on the bread, layered it with turkey, bacon, and a slice of cheese. I put it back under the broiler to melt the cheese. These are quick, easy, and low calorie. I also like adding avocado to mine, but I didn’t have any. After dinner, I went straight to bed and was asleep as soon as I laid down, and so was Jake. He never gets in our bed, but for some reason he thought he needed to sleep with us, and he is laying on top of my legs!
Thursday was a pretty boring day. I had yogurt for breakfast, a salad for lunch, a granola bar for a snack, and eggs and toast for dinner.
Then, I attempted a headstand, and I impressed myself! I have been doing Blogilates all week since I can’t run, and I’m really enjoying it!
Jake went to the groomer and came back smelling really good! He loves getting cleaned! And, he loves the bandannas that he gets to wear home. He will wear them for awhile and then pull it off and run around with it in his mouth.
We saw an owl outside last night, I tried to get a picture of it, but this was the best I could do.
Tonight, I’m going to dinner with my family for my sister’s birthday and tomorrow night we have plans with some friends. So, it’s going to be a fun weekend!
Did you do anything interesting this week? What are your plans for the weekend?
