Temptations were all around last night at dinner at Villa Capri 2. I held strong and kept to my plan. I checked out the menu online and knew exactly what I was going to order. Sometimes that backfires because the online menu and the actual menu differ and they don’t have what I want. That drives me nuts.
Back to dinner…..I splurged on some red wine (it’s good for me right?). :)
Our friends ordered fried calamari as an appetizer. They looked so good but I restrained myself. It’s hard for me to have a taste or just a bite of something. I’ll end up eating the whole thing. I guess I’m an all or nothing type of girl!
For my entree, I ordered the Mediterranean salad with Grilled Shrimp.
I ordered the dressing on the side and I’m extra glad I did because I didn’t like the one it came (it was too sweet) with so I had them bring me a side of the lemon oil vinaigrette. It was a delicious salad! It came with baby greens with chopped red onions, olives, cucumbers, tomatoes, ricotta salata cheese and three large grilled cheese.
My dinner companions had tons of delicious stuff in front of them like garlic bread and rigatoni Bolognese. I did try a little bit of the rigatoni but was able to keep it at that. Go me! As good as some food tastes, the feeling that I fueled my body with healthy eats is better! Most of the time at least. :)
You’ll be happy to see that I did not eat Teddie peanut butter this morning. I will admit that I wanted to but felt bad eating the same thing for breakfast for almost a week. I decided to make an egg sandwich instead. I toasted a light wheat English muffin and added cooked egg beaters and a slice of low fat Swiss cheese.
This breakfast really does stick with me the best. It kept me full for a full four hours….most food doesn’t do that for me. ;)
I took the kids to school this morning. It was my daughter’s first day at her new preschool (she is now at the same school as my son). Since she had already met her teacher and seen her classroom, she was comfortable and happy this morning.
I went to Cardio Muscle class and then to Trader Joe’s. I bought some of their “Just Chicken” and decided to incorporate it in today’s lunch. It’s a container of already cooked chicken cut into small strips/pieces. I’ve had it before and it’s really good!
I make a chicken sandwich on whole wheat bread using the chicken I bought, lettuce and a little bit of light mayonnaise. I had Progresso light soup and a couple of pickle spears as well.
Before I knew it, it was time to pick up my daughter. She gets out of school 2 hours before my son. It will be like this for this year and next year they will FINALLY be on the same schedule.
I came home and had a big bowl of watermelon. Isn’t summer watermelon the best!?!
The rest of the day will be picking up my son and cooking dinner. Easy peasy.
What temps you in restaurants?
What workout have you never tried and want to? Body Pump! My gym doesn’t offer it.
