8:00am: Coffee with pumpkin spice creamer
8:30am: Breakfast- Waffle with butter & flax seed
12:00pm: Lunch- Leftover Parmesan meatloaf
OK...so the only, O-N-L-Y way I managed to NOT sneak back in the kitchen and sample another slice of meatloaf on Sunday was by promising myself I'd have another slice the next dayJ Sometimes it's as simple as remembering "YES, THERE WILL BE ANOTHER MEAL! SPREAD THE LOVE!"J hahahahahhaa...it worked this time and made for a delicious lunchJ
3pm: Snack- Arugula with dressing
I'm not a HUGE fan of salad dressing, but once I couldn't find my one beloved favorite of raspberry vinaigrette at the market this weekend, I thought I'd give this one a whirl. And I mention this because I would have SWORN my vinaigrette had less calories and fat than RANCH. Guess what? WRONG-O! This one actually wins in the LESS column! I mean, not by much, but enough to surprise me. Always. check. your. labels, folks!
6:00pm: Dinner- Cheesy Chicken Soup
So by 2:30 in the afternoon, I had deemed yesterdays weather wayyyyyyyyyyyy too dreary for the salads I had planned for dinner (hence, my snack of saladJ). A quick text to Scott & a defrost of some chicken and SOUP NIGHT was proclaimed throughout the land.
This soup was super (soup-er??) flavorful from the carrots, celery & mix of Colby jack and Parmesan cheese melted in there. And I was loving the decision to nix the rice in the recipe in favor of serving it alongside a 1/2 a mini loaf of Pretzel bread from Trader Joe's. They are EPIC for soup dip-age!
8:00pm: Dessert- Mini ramekin of light cookie dough ice cream
What's missing from this day?? My beloved yoga class!! But even the dreary weather got the best of me last night and I just DID NOT feel like going out in the gloomy night. Totally lame, but I just wasn't feelin it. At least I had my ass kicked TWICE over the weekend between my wild Saturday yoga class (i.e- lots of 'FLOATING' moves and 'floating' = lots of core strength!) and a killer boxing class. I might try out a new class later this afternoon, but we shall see what the day brings.
Oh yeah...but while the rain did NOT usher me out the door, it DID usher in the cool weather. It's about 20 degrees cooler this fine morning!JJJ Downside? I can already feel my throat getting itchy!! GRRRRRRR...ENOUGH of this allergy nonsense already!
OK...allergy rant over.
Have a great Tuesday!J
