I think this weekend I am going to make a healthy breakfast casserole – that way my breakfasts will be portioned out and I don’t have to think about it.  If you have any links to healthy breakfast casseroles, can you leave them in the comments section?  Thanks!

Again, I left the house without bringing breakfast.  I knew we had leftover bagels at the office, but I only like to have a bagel once a week, otherwise I’d have them every day.  So I swung by Subway, got their egg white and ham breakfast sandwich with buffalo sauce and avocado for an extra .50 cents.

This comes in at 365 calories, 14 fat, 48 carbs, 6.9 fiber and 22 protein – super filling!  One of my bosses walked by my desk and said “that almost looks like buffalo sauce.”  When I told him it was he was like “for breakfast?!”  Um, yes!  Nothing wrong with that. Open-mouthed smile

I had more errands to run at lunch time so no exercise.  We had a birthday celebration and picked up an icecream cake at Baskins Robbins – I had no idea how expensive ice cream cakes were!  Like $35!  I didn’t have any, but everyone raved about it – oreo ice cream!


I had ground beef and veggie nachos for lunch.  I sautéed 3 ounces of ground beef with one chopped zucchini and added about a tablespoon of taco seasoning.  On the base was 15 tortilla chips (1.5 ounces), then I added the heated up taco/zucchini mix, the 1 ounce of cheese, and when it came out added diced bell pepper and tomato and cherry salsa.

These were so good – lunch comes in at 515 calories, 25 fat, 37 carbs, 5 fiber and 35 protein.

It’s getting hot in our hood!  Temps in the mid 90’s.  Thankfully Tony turned on the air before I got home.  It was a gorgeous night though.


After feeling like a slug for my lack of exercise this week, I told Tony that I was going to hit up the gym after work and then I’d pick up Chinese. Open-mouthed smile   I ran a 5k, but it was painfully slow – with a 5 minute warm up, my time was 41:03.  But I can only get faster from here, right?! Open-mouthed smile  And I plan on hitting up the gym today and tomorrow too.  I know once I go I’ll keep going.


I guess I shouldn’t have watched Food Network’s “The Best Thing I Ever Ate – Fried Chicken” while I was working out because I was hangry by the time I got home.  I didn’t even take a picture of my dinner!  I had a cup of beef and broccoli, 1/2 a cup of white rice and 1/2 an egg roll.  Dinner comes in at 408 calories, 18 fat, 37 carbs, 5 fiber and 3 protein.

What I like about this is that the broccoli far outweighs the beef, which is good – and the broccoli is always crisp tender – and they finally listened and made it spicy for me!  And I like how I left my blood sugar testing kit in the picture – my blood sugar was a bit high this morning 189, mainly because Tony and I had some of this snack mix while watching t.v.


Hopefully today Tony and I will finally find a car for me – I’ve been driving the rental car for nearly three weeks and I am pretending like its mine because right now my gym bag is tossed in the back seat, my gym shoes and sweaty socks are on the back seat floor – I am the worst at leaving crap in my car.  Think coffee travel mugs – I think I had one in my car for six months – yep, that’s my record!

Stats for Friday:

  • 1428 calories, 63fat, 141 carbs, 16 fiber and 84 protein
  • 5k after work
  • average blood sugar 142
