I think I've been doing pretty good lately, at least on the weekends.
Although I went out for Chinese food with a friend last evening, I'm still not doing too badly in the food department. I may have chosen my General Tao chicken, along with my Sweet & Sour chicken, fried rice, shrimp & one Peking ravioli, but I also loaded up on green beans & chicken & broccoli. See, not TOO bad, huh?
Today for breakfast I had a chicken sandwich on small pita bread, then ate the very same thing for lunch. I filled the pockets with fresh spinach, tomatoes, chicken breast meat & low fat mayo. At lunchtime I also added a half-sour pickle to menu.
Below is a picture of my dinner.
It is Smart Ones Lasagna with traditional meat sauce, green beans & onions cooked in chicken broth & a nice glass of white zinfandel wine.
For desert I 330 calories worth of Pringles & a Smart Ones Turtle Sundae.
This morning I managed to get in my strength training for both lower body & core, then took a spin around the inside of my house for 23 minutes. I walked & danced around again this evening for another 10 minutes.
Unfortunately, after my walk, I went to move a box that is in my living room & managed to pull out my back. I promptly called my chiropractor who told me to come right in, even though his office had already closed. I thought he closed at 11 a.m., but he really closes at 10 a.m. Tomorrow he is not open, but wants me to go in for 8:50 for another adjustment. He is such a nice doctor. I've been resting most of the day so my back is now feeling MUCH better. I may give him a call in the morning & tell him I feel okay now. I'll let him make that decision. I do know that when he has to see a patient two or three days in the same week, he doesn't charge for the extra visits. Like I said, he is remarkable.
Well, that's about it for today. I think I'm going to go & put my body into bed now.
As always, thanks for taking the time to read & comment on my blogs.
