Week 6: Day 4

Feb. 25, 2015

Another day down, another day healthy. Despite meetings and work and class, I still managed to fit in some time at the gym, event though it was at 9:30 at night. Definitely not the most energizing work out I have ever had, but I am glad I got one done nonetheless.

Breakfast

Broke out the eggs again. This time with spinach and some pepper jack cheese. Nothing exciting, but it was a good way to start my day.

Lunch

This was probably the most random lunch I have had in a real long time. I had work from noon to 2, so I had a banana and a Luna bar as a snack. And then when I was done with work I had some ham and pickles. None of this went together, and none of it made sense, but it curbed my hunger until dinner. Sometimes you just gotta make it work.

Dinner

A nice fresh dinner to end my day. Chicken, pepper jack cheese, tomato, lettuce and crouton wrap. Nothing fancy, but definitely tasty. Again not a lot of time for a meal, but I made it work.

Week 4: Day 2

Feb. 9, 2015

Another good day is in the books. I felt like I ate healthy, and I went to the gym. Double win. I keep getting hungry throughout the day, which isn’t the best feeling, but I am trying to curb it with some small healthy snacks. I’m trying not to go over board, but man do I love my food.

Breakfast

broccoli omelette

I haven’t made an omelette in ages, so this morning was quite the treat. I made a broccoli, scallion and pepper jack cheese omelette. I softened the broccoli in my pan for a couple minutes before I added the eggs and scallions, and then right at the end I added the cheese. This was a tasty, fresh way to start my morning.

Lunch

ham and smoothie

I felt like I have been eating too many carbs lately, so I decided to forgo the pita for lunch today. Instead, I just heated up my ham with cheese and ate it with a fork. Not the most exciting thing in the world, but I thought it was necessary. I also made a small smoothie with my tropical frozen fruit blend, orange juice, yogurt and chia seeds. It helped fill me up.

Dinner

grilled wrap

Dinner was a rockstar. I tried making cauliflower “mashed potatoes” for the first time, and it wasn’t a complete failure. I boiled the cauliflower for 8 minutes, drained it and added a dash of butter, milk, salt, pepper and garlic powder. I think I added too much milk because they were a little runny. The taste was good though, so I will be trying them again. My main course was a grilled chicken wrap. In my wrap was canned chicken breast with mayo, tomatoes, lettuce and colby jack cheese. I heated both sides in the pan for a few minutes, and I had the perfect golden brown crust on the outside. For whatever reason these wraps are one of my favorite meals, and tonight’s didn’t disappoint.
