Yesterday was Chris’s 32nd birthday. After work I asked him if he wanted to do anything to celebrate and he just wanted to stay home and get some pizza. So I went to Come Back Inn to pick up a pizza with Italian sausage, onions, green pepper, jalapeños, mushroom, and black olives. The pizza crust was thin and crispy just the way we like it.
We also had a large Italian salad on the side which was full of mozzarella cheese, olive salad over iceberg lettuce, tomatoes, sliced egg, and salami.
I had a slice and a half of pizza with some of the salad.
Then I had some of the cake I bought for two.
It was not all that great because it was more chocolate candy than actual cake, but still a sweet treat nonetheless. Rather than blog last night I decided to spend some QT with Chris since after all it was his birthday.
Yesterday morning I just wasn’t feeling my hot oatmeal so this morning I went with another favorite—peanut butter, yogurt, banana, and sweet potato pecan topped whole wheat toasted English muffin.
Plus some hot chai tea.
For lunch I started with a bed of spring mix.
Topped with some of the Italian salad from last night.
I also had an apple for some sweetness.
After work I headed straight over to the gym. I grabbed a Ultramet Lite Vanilla Smoothie at the cafe since my stomach was talking to me. Then I proceeded to do 15 minutes on the elliptical, 40 minutes of weights, and 7 minutes on the stair climber to finish.
Dinner had to incorporate some of the broccoli from the husband’s garden.
I picked up some flank steak the other day with intentions on making fajitas, but I nixed that idea two nights ago to make bean enchiladas and saved the beef for tonight’s beef and broccoli.
I used a recipe I found online that used a marinade of dry sherry, soy sauce, and cornstarch (used flour instead). It was a good thing I didn’t salt the dish because the lite soy sauce made it super salty. The beef and broccoli was served over brown rice.
Finally, I had a small handful of granola and 2 dates since I was feeling snacky. I also took a bite of last night’s cake too.
Now it’s time to hit the hay; only one more work day ’til the weekend! Yay!
