I have decided to take tomorrow off of work for a “mental health” day…basically to get a 4 day weekend. Whoo hoo!! I probably won’t be posting dinner tonight, so I’ll tell you what the plan is….flatout pizza and a salad. I’ve never made a pizza on a flatout wrap so hopefully they turn out good. If I get a chance I’ll post the picture tonight.

This weekend is going to be a very busy one for us. Saturday is my future father-in-law’s birthday and Sunday is my nieces birthday. Hopefully I can keep my eating and drinking under conrol and not eat so much birthday cake. 🙂

Ok so on to lunch…I had another great sandwich, same as I had the other day.

  • Oroweat light bread
  • laughing cow cheese
  • spicy mustard
  • turkey
  • jalapenos

On the side I had an apple (saving it for later), Fage 2% (saving for later) and my left over soybeans from last night.

Edit: This was the first time I had tried the Fage 2%…I normally buy the 0% but they were out. I didn’t like the 2%, I ate about 75% of it though. I will not be buying this one again. I’m sticking to the 0%.


The usual

A good sweat and sushi

 I got to the gym a 1/2 hour before the spin class started so I did the stairmaster for about 20 minutes. The class was a lot better this week, the instructor had a better selection of music. I remembered to bring my heart rate monitor, so after the stairmaster and the 60 minute class I burned 600 calories.

After the class my mom and I walked over to the Japanese restaurant. I got miso soup, soybeans, 1 california roll and 1 vegetable roll. All of it was so delicious. I ate all of it but the soybeans.

I remembered to take the picture of the miso when I was almost finished with it.


Tuna salad August 27, 2008

I got my shot and it didn’t hurt at all, but I have to go back in 2 days to get it checked…what a pain in the butt. For lunch I had a simple tuna salad with cucumbers, olives, red onion and a string cheese. I also used a few sprays of Italian salad spritzer. Before spinning I’m going to eat my Luna bar.

My mom decided that she wants sushi instead of mexican food tonight. Whooo hoooo! I never go out for sushi because Mike doesn’t like it. So that is pretty exciting! 🙂


A shot and oatmeal

I have to go to the doctors this morning to go get my TB shot. From what I remember this one hurts, so I’m not too excited about it. Anyways, for breakfast I had oatmeal, same as yesterday.

Tonight I’m suppose to be going to my second spinning class with some friends and my mom. After the class my mom and I are going out to dinner at El Dorado…a mexican restaurant.


On my own

I ended up getting home a little later from practice and of course I was starving when I finally got home. Mike wasn’t going to be home till later on, so I was on my own for dinner. I decided on dijon crusted tilapia with a little tartar sauce on the side, zucchini and squash, and a big sweet potato with salsa, little bit of mexican cheese and hot sauce. It was really good and very filling.

While making dinner I snacked on some Annie’s cheddar crackers.

and Mike and I shared a Jack Daniel’s Downhome Punch (no pic). I’d rather have a Jack and Coke but these aren’t too bad and they only have 170 calories.


Before practice… August 26, 2008
