Well, we made it through another week, didn’t we? Now it’s on to a fun-filled weekend getaway in Orlando. It’s a girl’s weekend spent with my best friend Jean at her twin sister’s house (I just looove twins). If I don’t post this weekend, don’t worry, there will be a full re cap. But first there will be a wedding to set up tomorrow morning. Today started off almost with an explosion of oatmeal in the micro:
Oatmeal with banana, flaxseed, cinnamon, almond butter, and maple syrup. With a hard-boiled egg for protein to build these muscles Jillian is tearing up! Then it was off to work at 9:30. There was a rehearsal dinner tonight that the girl’s were setting up for, but I worked in the office for a few hours, then headed out to do some shopping. Yes, I’m living the good life. I get paid to go shopping!!! But before I headed out, I had my packed lunch:
Tuna salad on whole wheat sandwich thin with a nectarine. I made my tuna salad with just a little smart balance mayo and a squirt of mustard. I love light lunches like this. It fills me up without leaving me stuffed and tired.
After my shopping excursion, I came home and had a little snack:
Reduced fat cottage cheese. More protein please.
There was more work to be done at home, although I don’t really consider anything I do “work”. It’s just my life, and I love doing it. (Most of the time). After “working”, I popped in the Jillean Micheals’ DVD and worked up a good sweat. Then I gave myself a pedicure and packed for my fun-filled weekend. And of course there was dinner:
I just love these simmer sauces! It makes such a fast, healthy meal. It’s even low in sodium, which I know can be tricky in jarred sauces like this. It’s packed full of flavor. That’s what I love about spicy foods, you get a lot of satisfying guilt free flavor. I got this sauce at Whole Foods. Love that place!
I made it with chicken, served it over couscous, with lots of steamed broccoli on the side. And for dessert, my boss’s mom made homemade chocolate chip cookies! I can never resist those:
And I may have had a square of dark chocolate. Party on folks!
