Alright, let’s get into it – the reason why we’re all here: I’m on Day 6 of my promise to post everything I eat, good and bad, for one week. (If you haven’t read it, here’s the post where it all started.)
Breakfast was pretty standard weekday fare: Quinoa Oatmeal and a banana. Seriously, the quinoa oatmeal is easy to make, packs and reheats well, is warm, and keeps me full all morning. Boring maybe, but I’m sticking with it.
I did okay for lunch, even though I did buy a wrap from our cafeteria at work. I have to say, they do a pretty good job of having fresh, healthy choices, including this wrap with chicken, Swiss cheese and roasted veggies (onions, red and green peppers and mushrooms). I brought grapes from home for an afternoon snack, but instead I ate those with the wrap and got a couple of hard boiled eggs for a snack. I ate those around 1:30 this afternoon.
It’s funny, I never used to like hard-boiled OR sunny-side up eggs – now, I love a good sunny-side up egg, by itself, on toast, or best of all, on a burger. Yum! Hard-boiled eggs still aren’t my favorite, but I like them okay, and they make a good snack.
Here’s where I fess up. I went out to eat tonight. Yep, for those of you keeping count, that’s three times since Saturday. Which is a bit more than usual for me, but my mom and dad invited me to dinner at Rico’s in Brimfield tonight. Not only do I like that restaurant, I like to hang out with the rents, so I said, “yes please!”
Now for the big question – what did I eat? Side salad (sweet-and-sour dressing on the side – I just dipped my fork instead of pouring it all over the salad), grilled Italian sausage with peppers and onions, a side of spaghetti and yes, some garlic bread. And it was all good. And I enjoyed the dinner and the company, and yes, I will go back to my quinoa oatmeal first thing tomorrow.
I will say that I got full and didn’t quite finish the spaghetti, so I did exercise some portion control. (That’s totally a big deal for me!)
Thank you to those of you that have been hanging in there with me all week – one day to go!
