Thanks to all of you for welcoming me back from vacation!  It was funny when I went to the grocery store on Monday the first half of my basket was all fruits and vegetables, I think even my body was like “no more meat!”

Since I didn’t have a blog to post yesterday I got my walking shoes on and went for a 30 minute walk before work – so refreshing to start the day out like that.

Breakfast yesterday was what I like to call an inside out omelet –it’s low carb and high protein too!.  This was for two servings, one for me and one for my boss:

Inside Out Omelet

2 servings:  223 caloires, 6.7 fat, 6.1 carbs, .2 fiber and 33 protein

  • 4 slices of deli ham
  • 1.5 cups liquid egg whites
  • 1.5 cups chopped baby spinach
  • 2 roasted red peppers, chopped (I used jarred in water)
  • 1 ounce of cheddar cheese

Scramble the egg whites with the spinach and peppers.  It takes a while – I usually just put that in my pan on medium and walk away for about 5 minutes. 

When I got to work I laid out the ham, divided the egg mixture between the slices of ham.  I put the filling at the top of the ham slice, then rolled it tight.  Sprinkled the cheddar cheese over the top and then put in under the broiler until the cheese was melty and the filling was heated through.  I was in a hurry so no natural light in these pics! Open-mouthed smile

My sister is friends on Facebook with Courtney from Biggest Loser Season 11.


She posted a workout on her wall that my sister said might work for me during a lunch time workout.  At the time, I didn’t know it was a cross-fit workout until my co-worker told me it was!


First of all, I totally modified this – I did a 1 mile run, then for the pull-ups, I used the rings like this for the 100 pull ups:  Still fucking hard though!


Then I did 50 push ups, 50 sit ups, 100 air squats and then finished with a 1 mile run.  It took me 40:50!   I am happy that my first mile and second mile were almost the exact same pace!

My friend Jody put on Facebook that they were showing cross fit on the Extreme Weight loss show last night.  I told her I was taping it.  She’s a huge cross-fit fan, has lost 40+ pounds and keeps trying to convince me to do it.  Here was our conversation:

I thought it was funny when she said “and ur still alive?!”  I am feeling it today – especially in my back and shoulders.  As soon as I hit publish on this post I am going to do my Classical Stretch on the DVR to stretch out.

When I was at Sam’s Club I saw they had a new salad kit for only $2.39.  I was going to make a chopped Asian salad from scratch, but I couldn’t buy all the ingredients for that price, so I used this as the base.

It said it was 3.5 servings, I only made it two.  I used 1/3 of the dressing and my boss used the other 2/3 – I don’t like an overly dressed salad.  Monday night when I was grilling our steak, I cooked the chicken for this dish.  The chicken marinated for about 2 hours before cooking, but I am sure it would be even better marinated overnight.

Asian Marinade

4 servings:  53 calories, 3.1 fat, 5.3 carbs, .1 fiber and .5 protein


  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 2 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon splenda (you could use sugar)
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon fresh chopped ginger
  • .25 cups water
  • 1 teaspoon sriracha

I may or may not have added sriracha to my salad. Open-mouthed smile

I also drank all my Detox Water at work.  You know how I could tell I was dehydrated?  I drank all 2 liters and only went to the bathroom once!

Dinner was grilled chicken Caesar salad – a super easy week night dinner.

I had to stop by Walgreen’s after work to pick up my insulin.  I had to get a new prescription when I went to the doctor a few weeks ago.  I have no idea what he wrote down, but I got two boxes of pens for the price of one!  Normally a box costs me $40, yesterday I got 2 boxes for $40!

Check out how much it would have cost without insurance for those two boxes – crazy!  I don’t know what people do without insurance!

Alright, off to stretch – make it a great day!
