mmm Its been a good day for food. So tastey!
Breakfast: Fiber one caremel delight & milk (I accedently bought an extra gallon of milk at the store this past shopping trip so I have to get this milk drank... I just broke into the second gallon today and it goes bad on the 9th so I have to find ways to use it up.... so its cereal yet again... sigh) - 241 cal
Lunch: Large salad with lettuce, wishbone regular ranch dressing, bell peppers, tomato, bacon bits, & sliced almonds....... Broccoli salad made with raw broccoli, broccoli cole slaw, 2% cheddar cheese, raisins, bacon bits and light miracle whip... Just as good as what they sell in the deli or serve at the salad bar (although I forgot the red onions) for alot less calories.... I looooove broccoli salad!!! - 402 cal
Snack: string cheese
- 80 cal
Dinner: veggie roll ups with 1/2 cup garlic & olive oil couscous & steam fresh lightly sauced broccoli, cauliflower and carrot mix.... - 455 cal
I got the recipe off of a PBS cooking show but threw in some of my own variations. If I had to do it again I would have peeled the egg plant and diced the veggies and layered them in a casserole dish instead of rolling them up... Other than that it was an awesome recipe and very very good.... expecially mixed with the couscous. You should try it. Oh btw it turns out its much more econamical to buy a basil plant ($2.99) rather than buying the packs of "fresh" basil, that are all browning and wilted ($1.99). yuck.
Ing - egg plant (I used 1/2 but next time I will use a whole), zucchini 1 whole, Mozzarella cheese (I used 3 pecies for the 2 servings I made), roasted red peppers about 1/2 cup, Fire roasted tomatoes about 1/2 cup, grated parmesan cheese about 1 tbls, salt and pepper - sprinkle, fresh basil leaves about 6 leaves.
Slice egg plant & zucchini, brush with olive oil and roast at 400* for about 20 min..... again if I had to do this again I would have peeled egg plant and diced the veggies and roasted them in a single layer with the olive oil.
layer veggies, drained canned fire roasted tomatoes, roasted (Jarred) red peppers, salt & pepper to taste, & fresh mozzarella cheese. ..... roll up if doing the rolls & secure with kabob stick..... Otherwise layer together & broil for 3 min or untill cheese is melted.
Top with fresh basil and grated parmesan, I used one basil leaf per roll.... If you are doing the recipe with veggies chopped I would chop the basil so you can have a little with each bite. Yummm, it gives it a great taste and smell ssooooo good. Goes perfectly with garlic & olive oil couscous.
Snack: 2 wasa wheat crackers w/ 2 tbls white bean and corn salsa & 1/4 a sliced avocado.... I love avocado :-) - 192 cal
Snack: Just wanted to try a bite of this...... 1/4 mrs freshlys chocolate cup cake - 35 cal
Ok I also went to the grocery store and had a sample of pinapple and a small cube of swiss cheese... 35 cal (no pic)
Total for the day ~ 1440 - I almost went under my calories for the day... Im accounting that to the fact that I normaly have meat with dinner and tonight was a totaly meat free night. I made my calories though and had alot of yummy food today.

today I think I did awesome! I cleaned my butt off today, rearanged the furniture in the whole house... the main item I moved was lyra's crib out of my room! yay... she has been screaming for hours every night for like 2 weeks. Then I end up having to put her in my bed and she kicks me untill she falls asleep and hubby has to go sleep on the couch. I stuck her in aidens room today and I hope she does better without us comming in at night and disturbing her sleep.
Anywhoo, then I cooked dinner and got hubby to watch the kids while I went out for my run. Its still hard but I can tell its much eaiser than last time. Getting out there and actually doing it is the main problem... its such a mental struggle to get outside for one and then to keep going for the full 30 minutes. I can do it physically but mentaly I want to quit. I dident let myself though so Im proud of myself for that. I want to be somewhat ready for this 5k, I gotta push myself if I want it.
Eating went really well... with all the cleaning and doing this and that I dident even have a big urge to snack. Im feeling a bit tirsty though so I think I might down a few glasses of water before I get ready for bed.
Here is my day of eating
Breakfast - Flatout wrap with/ 2 egg white, 1/4 cup shredded cheese, roasted red peppers & 2 slices turkey bacon.... mmm very good - 267 cal
Lunch - natural peanut butter & trader joes strawberry preserves on double fiber wheat.... 1/2 cup 1% milk (I just needed something quick so I could get back to what I was doing) - 305 cal
Snack - 1 can mustard sardines, 1 wasa wheat cracker (2 shown but only ate one, they were getting a little stale, yuck... time to open a new pack) - 180 cal
sardines were on yahoo as one of the best foods for you but one of the most hated foods.... they are really high in omega 3.... plus they are cheap and I like them :-) lucky me - 180 cal
Dinner - whole wheat rotini with pasta sauce, lean ground beef & mozzerella cheese... small salad with bacon bits, broccoli cole slaw, wishbone light ranch. - 603 cal
Snack: waffle cone & 1/2 cup cookies and cream ice cream - 240 cal
(Im sure by now you have realized I love my ice cream.... maybe I eat it a little to often, but I really like it..... when this tub is gone I wont by any more for a while though )
Total calories for the day ~ An awesome 1595.... yay, thats so good! Im proud of me today!
