Last night when I got home my hubby had dinner prepared. He had made turkey tacos with low fat cheese, and low fat sour cream. I had saw last week on Brittany’s blog a way to still have tacos but with a healthier twist……. Use a lettuce wrap instead of your traditional shell! Folks it rocked!!! Thank you Brittany for posting this idea. (Everyone take the time to check out her blog. She always has some quick and easy, yet healthy food ideas!) I really enjoyed them this way and didn’t feel guilty for eating them…… Yippee a way to have Mexican food and not feel guilty, now that’s something (=
This morning I got up at 3:45 a.m. and made it to the gym by 4 a.m. I stayed on the elliptical for an hour and half and burned 744 calories! Once I was done with that I did a few stretches and some core moves with an exercise ball.
I was a little pressed for time this morning because my household had a lot going on. Our pet rabbit, Elliott died. We have had him for close to four years and he was a little older when we got him. So that part of my morning was pretty sucky, but we kind of had a feeling that it was coming….. he hasn’t been acting like himself lately when we let him roam the yard. So I spent the morning taking care of that.
Once I came inside and got cleaned up for work I really didn’t have a lot of time to “make” breakfast, and was not feeling cereal. So I ended up eating the sandwich I prepared for lunch, turkey breast on Jewish rye bread with low fat mozzarella cheese and a few cherry tomatoes. I know this may seem weird for breakfast but it was pretty good!
For lunch a co-worker and I are going to “Salad Express”.
I haven’t been there in awhile but I’m looking forward to taking an actual lunch break for once and getting out the office. I really do appreciate that lately when family & friends want to have lunch or dinner with me they always ask me what or where can I eat. Not that I want them to bend over backwards for me, but it really means a lot that they take my goals and the changes I am trying to make in consideration.
My husband is so on track with me at the moment on what I want to achieve. In the past I would feel bad when he said he just wanted a quick meal, and want to go grab something at a fast food establishment. I would eventually cave in and then the routine of eating “fast” would form again. The past few months have not been perfect but we have really kicked that bad habit. We are both learning how to make the right choices for everyone in our family. Not only are we eating better foods, and feeling better from it, we are also saving money from not going out so much. The other night my husband stated that he wanted to grab something quick, but I told him to go ahead if that’s what he wanted and I will just prepare something from home for me and the baby. He gave me a big hug and told me that he was sorry and then he thanked me for keeping him on track. It feels really good that we are doing this as a team!!!
Well folks have a blessed Tuesday!!!
