- Dinner is where I pretty much always try to make something different & keep it interesting....(ummm, except last weekJ You'll seeJ) And if you've read this blog for awhile, you'll remember that it was kinda the original style.
- Splurges are really the most fun to talk about and enjoy AMIRIGHT??
- And exercise melds them all together = keeps ya on the healthy track, while giving you a little bit of wiggle room for that piece of chocolate.
OK, so here ya go...a peek at my week:
Monday: And it's starting off boring because we were all sick from before Easter and still feeling under the weather, so I think my dinner was leftover Chinese takeout lemon chicken & rice this night. I mean, awesome first post about healthy balance, right?J
Tuesday: The ONLY thing that sounded good: Takeout baked ziti with sausage + a salad (still wasn't feeling great)
Wednesday: The only thing that STILL sounded good: Baked ziti with sausage (served on a salad-sized plate for portion control) + salad + a slice of bread & butter
Thursday: 1 dish Lightened Pad Thai (made with cabbage instead of noodles. Healthy + delicious!)
Friday: Polenta Caprese Bites + salad
Saturday: No dinner since we were still satisfied from a good brunch at Tortilla Press. Complete with a few cinnamon pita chips...
...a few bites of 'breakfast nachos'...
...and 1/2 a chorizo + raja quesadilla
Sunday: French Onion Soup Dippers + broccoli
I don't want to live a life without grilled cheese either. There, I said itJ
And the splurges!
Tuesday: Chocolate Coconut egg. Because EasterJ
Thursday: A small scoop of THIS ice cream...
Friday lunch: Aka-the ONLY thing that I wanted on the planet: Stewart's Root Beer + a cheese dog (and a couple fries stolen from KatieJ) Here's what was leftJ
Sunday afternoon: Good old stovetop popcorn with butter + salt
It was a family treat all aroundJ
And finally- Exercise:
Pretty quiet week since we were getting back up to speed after being under the weather.
Thursday: Teaching a private gentle yoga session
Friday: Power yoga...taught by ME at my 1st ever full, public class! Yeeeeeeeeee! (does shaking with terrified nerves burn calories??)
Saturday: 2 mile walk around the park
Sunday: Restorative yoga
