Yesterday was one of those work days that just goes on and on, where you feel like you’ve been there an hour and all of a sudden it’s 4:00 in the afternoon!  I worked late last night, but expected to.  Tony was nice enough to wait for me to come home so we could have dinner together.  I love you Tony!

I took exactly seven pictures yesterday – that is so unusual for me!!!  Breakfast was egg beaters breakfast pizza.  My friend Jenn just tried making breakfast pizza too – hers turned out amazing!  She used a flat out for the dough – great idea!  My pizza comes in at: 429 calories, 57 carbs, 20 protein, 15.3 fat and 2.4 fiber.

Lunch was inspired by In Praise of Leftover’s chile tamale pie.  Although I halved the recipe, I thought it still called for too much enchilada sauce, but I was sadly mistaken.   I didn’t realize how much the corn tortillas would soak up the sauce, so the result was a somewhat dry casserole.  I also ground my own chicken and added canned pinto beans to up the fiber.  I am not going to post my recipe yet – still needs tweaking!  But since I had my baja fresh salsa on the side, it wasn’t a total loss – I just dipped each bite into the salsa!

Lunch comes in at 608 calories, 57 carbs, 41 potein, 26 fat and 13.9 fiber

My store had cornish hens on sale – buy one, get one free!  Have you tried cornish hens before? They taste just like chicken to me!  It was almost 7:15 by the time we lit the grill, so in the end we were grilling in the dark! 😀

we cook them above a cast iron skillet on a rack - this way they get crispy all the way around - and while it looks like the hens have zits, it's actually garlic from the marinade!

I had two wings, some breast meat, and 1 cup of red potato smashed potatoes.

Dinner: 423 calories, 30 carbs, 26 protein, 23 fat and 2.8 fiber

Stats for Tuesday:

  • no exercise, I worked through lunch 🙁
  • 1,461 calories, 144 carbs, 87 proein, 64 fat and 19.1 fiber
  • I didn’t watch: the Biggest Loser, American Idol or Glee last night 🙁
  • I watched deadliest catch and Chopped though! 😀

Today will be a much calmer day at work thankfully.  It is beautiful today so my plan is to do my 45 minute walk at lunch today – my exercise has been seriously lacking lately!

Happy Wednesday! 😀
