to weigh in yesterday.  You see, both Friday and Saturday night I stayed up late to watch some of my shows on the DVR.  Tony went to bed and Friday night I stayed up until 1:00 a.m. watching American Idol!  And of course, with no one looking, the cheese and crackers came out and it was a lot of mindless eating. Embarrassed smile

I don’t know why I do it, like if no one sees me eating it doesn’t really count.  And I worked out over the weekend, so I don’t know why I would waste that time at the gym by eating food making it a wash.  Gah.   But, the weekend is over, this is a new week, and I’ll just have to dust myself off.

Since I still have the panini machine at work, I decided to make my boss and I breakfast paninis.  I found burrito size tortillas that are 140 calories each, and the filling was egg whites, baby spinach, an ounce of ham and 1/2 an ounce of cheese.  I cooked the egg/spinach/ham mixture at home, then assembled them at work.

We both really liked these – of course, I doused mine in Buffalo Tabasco after this picture was taken. Devil

My gym bag was packed and I decided to do a 5k on the treadmill.  I walked 2 minutes, then ran three minutes, and each subsequent three minute runs I went faster.  My last three minute run was at an 8:45 minute pace!  Not a bad time for walking/running a 5k!


Tony and I went out for Chinese over the weekend, and I hate to waste leftovers, so I had a cup and a half of our leftovers – his was pan noodles with a bunch of different meat, mine was kung pao shrimp.

I decided to make us taco salads for dinner.  I forget how good these are.  Mine was lettuce and baby spinach with cucumber, diced tomato, and chopped pickled asparagus.

With ground sirloin, kidney beans and a dollop of Wholly Guacamole – yum!  My dressing was 1/3 cup of my baja fresh salsa mixed with 1 tablespoon light ranch.

The spicy guacamole is amazeballs! 

So while it was 51 degrees yesterday afternoon, this morning is 11 degrees, with a wind-chill of zero, and snow flurries are expected.  I am so done with this winter already!  When I posted the temp on facebook, I was a bit jealous of people who had temps in the 70s!  (Kelly and Charlie, I am looking at you two!)

Right now I have a batch of banana granola pancakes going with the new Chobani flavor of banana yogurt.  They look good!  I’ll post the recipe tomorrow.  I also have a three bean pork chili for lunch today – I made it over the weekend so it will be interesting to see how the flavors melded together. 

Question of the Day:  Do you eat when no one is looking?

Make it a great day!
