137.2...Sushi, Sushi and More Sushi

Tuesday night I ate some more of the Vittorio’s leftovers before heading to book club.

There was a delicious looking spread on the table when we arrived. I managed to not eat it because I sat as far away from the food as possible. Lol.

We discussed “The Golden Sun” and had the privilege of having the author, Shilpi Somaya Gowda, join us! Made for a really exciting book club!

Wednesday’s breakfast:

I took the kids to school then went to the gym. That was followed by an appointment, some errands and lunch at Luna Grill:

I went to two of my son’s basketball games. The first one went into triple overtime with them coming out victorious but I lost the 45 minutes I had planned for dinner. We ended up going through the Taco Bell drive through on our way to the next event. I ordered a Chicken Power Burrito (450 calories and not bad!) and ate it in the car while driving. I cannot stand eating in my car but sometimes it has to be done. 

Breakfast Thursday:

After I dropped the kids off at school, I went to the gym. No tennis because it was raining. 

Lunch was tuna salad on toasted Ezekiel bread and pickles:

That night I went to dinner at Ken's Sushi Workshop with some friends. We had a fabulous meal and an even better time! Lots of yumminess to share:

I love sushi.

Today’s breakfast on this very rainy day:

After I dropped the kids off at school, I went to Orange Theory and got my butt kicked as usual. 

I’ve been lifting heavier weights so I’ve started drinking protein shakes after my workouts.

IMG 2650

I really don’t like drinking my calories (unless it’s wine) but it’s nice and filling and I’m not starving by 11AM anymore!

I had an issue with my car so I had to take it in to get fixed. I needed some groceries so I picked up lunch at the store as well.

More sushi! Is there ever enough? I doubt it. 

How often do you eat your meals in the car?

137.8...On Repeat

On Sunday night we had some friends over for dinner and to watch football. We decided to order in from Vittorio’s. 

IMG 2603

I had a bit of everything: Chicken Piccata, Caesar Salad, Rigatoni Bolognese and Penne with Chicken in Spicy Vodka Sauce. Everything was delicious!

Monday’s breakfast:

IMG 2609

I went to the gym, then ran some errands. Lunch was tuna salad on Ezekiel toast with pickles.

The previous day’s food was so good and since we had plenty of leftovers, I decided to put in on repeat for dinner.

Breakfast today:

IMG 2618

I took the kids to school, then went to the gym. I had a meeting then came home to meet some repair people. 

Lunch was another repeat. 

IMG 2619

I have book club tonight and not a ton of time to eat dinner so I foresee another repeat dinner!

Do you eat repeat meals often?

138.0...Fabulous Fondue

On Tuesday night the kids wanted to go to Pei Wei for dinner. It’s not my favorite place but I put up with it every now and then. I ordered the kid’s steamed honey seared shrimp with brown rice and veggies.

Besides the fact our order got screwed up, when my meal finally arrived it wasn’t very good. Boo. 

Wednesday’s breakfast:

IMG 2411

I took the kids to school, then went for a run outside. Lunch was Burger Lounge. They opened a new one near me and I finally was able to check it out. 

IMG 2473

I had a turkey burger with cheddar cheese, lettuce wrapped with a side salad. Pretty good!!

That evening was Bunco at Silvana’s house.

After I took the kids to school, I went to the gym. I came home to do massive amounts of laundry. Lunch was tuna salad, crackers and pickles.

My son had a basketball game that evening that they won, after an intensive game ending in overtime. We celebrated at Tio Leo’s for dinner.

Steamy shrimp fajitas!

Friday’s breakfast:

After drop off, I went to the gym, then ran some errands. 

I met some friends at Love Boat Sushi to celebrate Diana’s birthday.

I picked up the kiddos from school then came home and got ready for dinner. 

We met several other couples at Harvard Cookin’ Girl for a cooking class complete with food and lots of great wine. We made (well, sort of…we watched mostly) Proven├žal Chicken with Orzo and Salad:

IMG 2588

Upside Down Apple Tart with Ice Cream:

IMG 2589

Everything was super tasty but I don’t think anyone was really full afterwards. We filled in the gaps by going to Dukes for drinks and dessert afterwards. 

Wind N Sea Breeze (hanger 1 vodka, fresh grapefruit, shaken and served up):

IMG 2590

Hula Pie:

IMG 2591

You can’t beat a Hula Pie!

Yesterday’s breakfast had a small tweak: Ezekiel bread instead of English muffin:

IMG 2593

It was my daughter’s birthday party during the day. I had a couple slices of cheese pizza at the party and shared some birthday cake with my husband. Our family came back to our house and I put out some different chips and dips which I snacked from all day.

We picked up Milton’s for dinner. I had the Milton’s Chopped Salad:

IMG 2599

Today’s breakfast….same as yesterday but I didn’t put avocado on the bread:

IMG 2600

I went to the gym and got a good leg workout it. Lunch was tuna salad on Ezekiel bread toasted with pickles. 

IMG 2602

Today we are watching football and having friends over for dinner. Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Eat anything especially yummy this weekend?
