The day before WI is always one of those days that I’m on my game 110%. I wonder why I can’t do this the rest of the week? Can you imagine the losses if I did?
For lunch – my good old mixed green salad with goat cheese – oil & vinegar. (Gotta get my Good Healthy Guidelines in & I just LOVE Olive Oil!)
Also, I haven’t had these in a while – probably since last summer, but they’re by far one of my favorite items from Trader Joe’s – it’s their Sweet Apple Chicken Sausage 1 is 3pp & 2 is 7pp – check out these ingredients:
Skinless chicken meat, Pure maple syrup, Evaporated cane juice, Dried apples, Salt, Lemon juice & Spices. It’s always nice when you can easily read an ingredient list – wouldn’t you say? 😀
Add an apple as a snack & I’m good to go!
Dinner tonight is Dream Dinner’s steak with garlic & herb butter. Probably have a nice side salad or broccoli with it.
And, of course the night isn’t complete without a smoothie!
I have so many great recipes on standby that I plan on making this weekend. One in particular is from Rocco’s book Now Eat This Diet! Book. I’ll give you a hint – it’s a soup! 😀
I’m still trying to figure out a good workout to do during my lunch break. It’s only a half hour, so there’s not too much I can do. I tried going to the gym during my lunch one day for a run – I was a hot mess & it took an hour & half! That time I need to make up, which means more time away from Natie, who is already going through some insane separation anxiety. So far all I can come up with is walking. I’ve been walking around the complex, which can get a little boring. I decided to venture out on the back roads & well…they’re not too inviting. The main road is just that a main road. So to avoid getting hit by a car I’ve been opting for the “back roads”. Yeah…remember that word “Sketchy”…well that’s what it is. It’s a mix of industrial with a mix of woods. It doesn’t seem to be a well patrolled area, lots of garbage in the wooded area & to be honest with all this Gilgo Beach stuff going on I just see this area as another dump site. Horrible, I know. Yesterday I heard a car slow down as it approached me – the guy needed directions, but I think my heart skipped a beat in the process. My mind goes all over the place…the one positive thing about it is my pace is faster. I think I’m going to stick with doing circles in the complex – at least I’ll be safe – as long as I watch out for attacking geese. (Yes, that’s happened to me & Kim before!)
