With all the leftover Mexican fiesta food from our Memorial Day feast, you are going to see lots of Mexican food leftovers this week. Open-mouthed smile  I am not complaining one bit.

Breakfast was two breakfast tacos – 2 corn tortillas, 2 eggs, some sauteed peppers, 2 tablespoons of refried beans on the bottom, some salsa, lettuce and a bit of cheese.  Breakfast comes in at 421 calories, 19 fat, 38 carbs, 8.5 fiber and 25 protein.

I had every intention of riding my bike yesterday at lunch – but Hannah surprised me for lunch!  We went to The Lucky Monk right by my office.  Best pizza and burgers around.  Our favorite pizza?  The baby spinach pizza with fresh shaved parmesan, ricotta cheese and mozzarella and extra virgin olive oil. 


Hannah doesn’t like red sauce all that much.  If I make her my homemade pizza, she might have a total of two tablespoons sauce total on her pizza.  Our one fatal flaw at lunch?  The Upsell.  It’s Server 101.  I should know, I have been a server for approximately 10 years of my life.

Say a customer asks you for a glass of merlot.  If they don’t specify a brand or house wine, you automatically have the bartender pour the most expensive glass of merlot – I’ve been known to sell $15 glasses of wine vs. the $6 house wines.  I know, it’s not nice, but the bigger the check the bigger the tip.

The server said that they had unsweetened ginger peach tea – I was in!  I should have known it was bottled tea.  While our pizza cost $9.95 – our two teas?  Cost $10!  Hannah paid though – so thanks Hannah!  I normally wouldn’t bring back my drink from a restaurant, but for $5 bucks, you know I did!  But it was delicious. Open-mouthed smile  I put in spinach pizza in fatsecret.com  – it told me two slices were 580 calories, 22 fat, 597 carbs, 3 fiber and 20 protein – sound about right?

I had two errands to run after work to pick up a prescription for Tony and drop off the office mail at the post office.  I get in my car, turn the car on and . . . it would not go in reverse.  I mean, at all.  I could rev the engine, but it was not going backwards.  I could put it in drive, 1 and 2 gear, but there was no room to go forward.

So I had to call Tony – we couldn’t even push it back in neutral.  So we called a tow truck and were able to get to the car rental place before they closed.  Whew!  Thanks for coming to my rescue Tony! Red heart

Only one tiny little problem.  Since Tony was out he picked up his prescription while I went to the post office.  I come back to the car, turn it on and hear this loud whirring sound, and I look down and see a little picture of a wrench and the service light is on. Sad smile  I immediately called the car rental place, but they were literally closing when we left.  So I have to exchange it on my way to work this morning.

For the record, Tony asked that I not touch or driver our new car. Just kidding

By the time we got home it was about 6:50, so I quickly threw together burgers and I had sweet potato fries on the side.  Dinner comes in at 555 calories, 26 fat, 57 carbs, 3 fiber and 20 protein. 

By the time 9:00 rolled around, I went to stand up and my left heel was killing me.  I haven’t done my 30 day classical stretch since last Friday, and I haven’t been wearing my inserts.  Recipe for disaster.  I did one 30 minute stretch last night, but I need to wear my inserts and do the stretch every day to alleviate the heel pain.

So not the healthiest set of meals – definitely lack on the fruit and veggie department, but I’ll pick it up.

I have Erica to thank today for our Inspirational Diet motivation for the day.  (I hope this is the one she was talking about!).   Make it a great day.  And I’ll try not to have any cars towed today. Winking smile
