Since I start my weeks on Monday's, Thursday is considered my "mid week". I decided to start doing mid week check in's, just to share how the week is going and if there's anything new.
Well - I made it to the gym Monday, skipped Tuesday, and went last night. I'm still trying to talk myself into going tonight. It's gloomy here, I had a late night last night, and I've had a super busy week at work. I really just want a glass of wine and my couch tonight. The gym just isn't a priority for me today. I'll go tomorrow, Friday and Saturday and that'll put me at 5 days for the week. Perfect!
For the most part I've stuck to my eating plan for the week, however I've deviated a bit from the breakfast I had planned of sausage and eggs. Instead, my FABULOUS office mate Lesley brought this in for me...
HELLO it's DELICIOUSNESS!!
You can find this at Dierberg's. Get this.. it's $1!!! $1 for a box of 5 packets!!! If you've ever had the Kashi oatmeal, well it's around $4 for 8 packets, and this oatmeal tastes exactly the same! I had the Apple and Cinnamon flavor on Tuesday, and yesterday and this morning I had the Maple and Brown Sugar flavor.
1 packet - 160 calories, 31 carbs, 5 grams of protein. Definiately worth trying!
In other news... Im a sucker for a good flatbread. My problem is that the flatbreads are often too thick for me, and arent band-friendly. I love the Flat-Out brand wraps, but they're just too thick. This Lavash Bread by Joseph's is PERFECT! One sheet is enough for 2 meals. The whole sheet is about 8" x 11", and 100 calories! I cut one sheet in half, and wrapped my chicken/beans/cheese mixture it in, and made a "burrito" out of it. It was excellent! The Lavosh is soft, and when you roll it, it doesnt crack or break which is sometimes a problem with tortillas.
You can find this at Walmart in the specialty bread section. I paid $2.50 for it.
In addition to my mid-week check in's, the plan is to try a new recipe at least once every other week. If you have one you think I should try, lemme know. I have a few from my friend Carolyn, that I've been meaning to try, and I'll get to them I'm sure. But for now, I'm gonna leave you with this recipe I found on Shape Magazine's Healthy Eating section. Im planning to try it over the weekend. I'll give the reviews after I do, of course. Unless YOU try it first... then let me know. :)
