142.6…Early Bird Special

I felt like a granny last night. I ate dinner at 4:30PM. In my defense I had to….I had to return my rental car and go straight to the school’s open house. I would not have eaten dinner until almost 9PM otherwise. I would have eaten my hand off.

Before I left I reheated the last of the Spinach Fettuccine with Yogurt Cream Sauce.

Not surprisingly, by the time I got home I was hungry again so I made a quick peanut butter sandwich.

I kept the peanut butter theme going at breakfast. I ate an English muffin with Teddie peanut butter and a side of cantaloupe.

I took the kids to school and went to a Room Parent meeting. I feel like I’ve lived at the school for the past few days!

I went to Zumba class and it was awesome. The class was super packed and the energy was high….I loved it!

Lunch was a giant salad….tuna salad on top of mixed greens, baby spinach, cherry tomatoes, cucumber, red onion, red bell pepper, shredded carrots all drizzled with balsamic vinaigrette.

After picking up both kids, I had some watermelon for a snack.

I’m going to start making dinner and I’m excited about a new recipe I’m going to try….here’s to hoping it turns out so I can share it with you!

What is your normal dinner time? We usually eat around 6PM. We are early birds over here.


  1. Um I have to just say I'm a tad jealous you've lost 5lbs in a week. I'm tracking etc and still, nada. Oh well. Doing good girlie!

  2. @Hallie
    I'm a little shocked too!! I think I was eating so bad that really restricting my calories and upping my workouts has really shocked my body! Just wait until the weeks when my weight won't budge. I'm going to enjoy the losses while I can! :)

  3. The fettucine looks yummy! And 5 pounds? Great job! I like to eat around 6 too - if it gets too late I don't want to cook.


  4. Hi there.)

    Oh, you ve got such a cute blog!! I love it!
    Nice post.))

    I need your help (maybe again) ...
    I spend new survey ..
    Have you watched the MTV awards prizes?
    if yes whether you agree with all the awards, or something you think was unfair?

  5. We usually eat around 6:30 - although on the weekends we tend to eat a bit later.

    I don't miss all the school meetings - turns out I don't have parent meetings in college. :D

    Hope you have a great weekend Melissa!

  6. We eat at varied times, depends on kids sports and work mtgs. Last night was after football practice - 9pm! ick!
    i too am jealous of your 5 lbs....i am tracking, exercising...and no go so far. It has to come down, I will stay the course!
