Last night's dinner was delicious!! I'm glad I made the marinara early...when I got back from my walk with Lisa and Cathi, dinner was half done. I boiled some wheat penne, grilled some chicken breasts and sauteed some veggies (spinach, zucchini, mushrooms and garlic) and dinner was done!

After I put the kids to bed, I grabbed a chocolate skinny cow ice cream sandwich for dessert. Yum!

I didn't sleep well last night for some reason. Not sure why...but don't you hate that??? I did know what I wanted for breakfast though. Scrambled eggs sounded so good! I scrambled some egg beaters and topped it with black pepper and Tabasco. On the side was a toasted English muffin with a Laughing Cow cheese wedge on it. I had some strawberries too. A lot going on with this breakfast!

I took the kids to camp and went to Zumba. I burned a ton of calories....we never stopped jumping around! Lisa....if you're reading this....you should have gone!! :)

I came home and made lunch: turkey and swiss sandwich on wheat bread with mustard, lettuce, tomato and red onion. I heated up some tomato soup too:

Then it was bill paying time. In the middle of that, my computer decided to get a virus. Guess I should have listened to my brother and installed anti-virus software? So after hours on the phone with McAfee, all is well now. I am protected. :)

We are taking the kids out to dinner with some friends and their kids. I think we are having Mexican food. Will I be able to avoid the chips????

What is your go-to healthy meal at Mexican restaurants? I like to order a tostada and not eat the shell or cheese enchiladas with tons of veggies instead of rice and beans (that might not be the healthiest option but it's better than some!).


  1. I love Skinny Cows!!! My problem with them is that I could eat the entire package of them at once!!

    At Mexican restaurants, I am zero help because I can't restrain myself. :)

  2. I need to take a page from your book! I usually overeat. :( I try to just get 2 chicken tacos or 1 veggie taco + 1 chicken taco. My problem is the chips!

  3. Your pasta dinner looks mahvelous! But you need some vino with it! :-)

  4. I am powerless against the chips. If I'm being "healthy" I'll get a chicken fajita burrito, but really, there's nothing healthy unless you stick with one tiny taco or something. I just go with the "moderation" plan for Mexican...as in, I go once a month if that, but we go all out.

    I haven't been sleeping well either. Something in the air? It's getting really annoying.

  5. If the tortilla soup is broth based, that is always a good option.

  6. Your eats look so good, fresh and pretty simple, too! Love it. I usually get salads loaded with black beans and chicken at Mexican restaurants. With some guac and chips to start, of course!
