Hello all! This weekend was busy, and full of bad food. Seriously delicious food, but not so much on the healthy side. And I didn’t get much exercise beyond walking the pup.
Breakfast – Banana oatmeal and egg beaters
Lunch – Chicken/provolone hot sandwich with a greek salad (take-out)
Dinner – oil/vinegar marinated grilled chicken, mashed potatoes with green onions and bacon mixed in, steamed green beans
Exercise – walked the pup for 30 minutes, but didn’t have time to do anything else because the in-laws came over for dinner
Evening – laundry, and spending time with my feeling-neglected DH.
Tons of errands, cleaned the whole house, and tons of kuldunai making for my father in law’s birthday dinner.
Breakfast: red berry with banana, milk
Lunch: slice of pepperoni pizza and leftover mashed potatoes from last night (how’s that for junk food)
Snack: slice of venison bologna
Dinner: kuldunai, leftover green beans
Evening – had my inlaws around…MIL made a carrot cake and insisted I eat it. Bleck.
Ran errands with the hubs – I know more about turkey hunting equipment than I ever wanted. Attended a birthday party in the evening, which meant a super-later dinner and getting to bed late.
Breakfast: egg beaters, one slice leftover bacon, used leftover roasted potatoes as ‘home fries’
Lunch: cheddar turkey braut on a potato roll, handful of pretzels
Dinner: a very late and very rushed Chinese – I had 2 crab rangoons and a pint of chicken and broccoli with white rice. And there was a slice of chocolate cake at the birthday party.
Ugh. I basically feel like I don’t want to eat for days after all of that.
And yet, here are some eats from Monday! Ha!
Re-do (in packaged and portable form) of yesterday. OMG it was delicious. Added a bagel thin with strawberry preserves for staying power.
Didn’t make it to snack because breakfast was filling
Leftover spinach/sausage stuffed shells and a side salad with red wine vinegar
Kashi bar with peanut butter and a cup of seedless grapes
(Unpictured because I forgot!)

Came home and ate a fruit leather and a small piece of deer bologna before walking the pup for 25 minutes. My legs are officially jello.

My week is going to be busy…we’re headed out to the Pittsburgh area to see my family for Easter and I always feel like there’s a ton to be done before we leave.
See my list?
Tonight I need to:
- Sew the couch cushion the dog chewed
- Pack up the pup’s stuff for the trip
In addition to my normal weeknight activities (reading blogs, sending emails, updating my blog, packing breakfast/lunch/snacks for work tomorrow, getting clothing for work and gym tomorrow,and cleaning up from dinner)
