Yesterday was a day centered around food. Meal number one was breakfast. Then lunch time rolled around so I ate some more of the Creamy Macaroni and Cheese. Meal number two.
This time I added tuna and peas to it and it took it to a whole new place. While it was beyond delicious, I probably didn’t need to eat such a big lunch when I was going to a baby shower later that afternoon.
Meal number three:
The baby shower was a tea and there were a ton of delicious tea sandwiches, scones and mini desserts.
I am a HUGE sucker for tea sandwiches. I just love them. I had two plates that looked like this:
Even though I had already eaten, I made quite a dent in the sandwiches. I skipped the desserts but enjoyed two glasses of champagne. :)
Check out all the gifts my friend received for her baby shower:
She was seriously showered!
Meal number four occurred later that night at our club’s holiday party. There was a buffet of all sorts of holiday foods: turkey, prime rib, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, veggies, salads and rolls. I enjoyed some prime rib, mashed potatoes with gravy, veggies and salad.
And a couple glasses of wine. :) Normally, they make a really good bread pudding. I tried one bite and passed. It wasn’t as good as normal. Or maybe I had just eaten way too much that day to enjoy it. Either way, I skipped dessert. I guess you can’t have it all right?
Breakfast this morning was a toasted English muffin with peanut butter and an apple.
My husband took the kids to school and then I went to Cardio Muscle class. I started the class very tired and lethargic but was so glad I went. Great workout!
I went to the grocery store and came home to make lunch:
Turkey sandwich, carrots and hummus. I’m sure it looks like I’m trying to be healthier today. Wait until you see what’s for dinner though. Here’s a hint: it’s Monday Night Football….and the San Diego Chargers are playing! Go Bolts!
Are you finding that you are eating more than you normally do lately?

I did something to my hip/sciatic nerve and havent been able to go to a class in a week! yes a week! I am sick! I have done some walking save for the couple of days I didnt even do that. I am feeling somewhat better today but didnt want to make it worse again...so as of now my plan is to get back to barbell strength on thursday, as tomorrow I have a lunch mtg and wed I have a facial :) priorities, people!ReplyDelete
You would be the perfect friend to go to parties with! I'd let you have all the tea sandwiches and wine, and I'd take all the desserts :)ReplyDelete
