There is a theory that you should eat this way. Breakfast being your biggest meal, then a lighter lunch and even a lighter dinner. I believe my day went like this:
Breakfast like a Prince, Lunch like a Pauper and Dinner like a King! In the whole grand scheme of things, I met all my goals except going over in the grams of fat department by a mere 9 grams. But I am not sure it makes sense to have such a high meal at night, when hours later you are just going to bed!
Breakfast was my typical egg sammie – 1 Arnold thin, 1 egg, 2 pieces center cut bacon and 1/2 ounce of Swiss. I’ve been trying to drink more water and filled up a big glass with breakfast!
In trying to clean out my fridge with what’s left, I had three of my chicken potstickers left. Then I noticed in the back of the fridge I had these:
It’s a love/hate with these noodles – either you love them or hate them! I give them a brisk rinse under cold water and they are good to go. I had 1 jalapeno pepper left, some broccoli slaw and bean sprouts – a spicy Thai soup was born! Only problem? This whole bowl comes in at only 217 calories!! The base of the soup was this:
Mixed with 2 cups of water and then I just simmered everything with the sliced jalapenos for about 10 minutes.
This took me forever to eat! It was nice and spicy! We had food leftover from a meeting and I did sneak in a small slice of sausage pizza for about 161 calories! 😀
I had no clue what to make for dinner so we decided to go out! I had a buy one get one 1/2 off entree. Just so happens they had a beer special – Sam Adams light for only $2!
Tony got a draft beer and I really wanted to steal this glass!
I ended up getting the chicken fajita plate – I had 3 corn tortillas, all the guacamole, 1/3 of the refried beans and none of the rice – and about 3/4 of the chicken pepper mixture – happily with no onions!
See that pickle at the top of my plate? Every time we go out, Tony gives me his dill pickle because he knows I love them so much!
No exercise today, but I plan on hitting the gym hard tomorrow! (Any pep talks would be greatly appreciated!)
