Thursday was a great day! I got lots of work done, walked 4 miles during lunch then had a new recipe for lunch – Chicken and Pasta Salad for two!
½ cup chopped, peeled cucumber
¼ cup plain fat-free yogurt
2 tbsp chopped onion
2 tbsp light mayonnaise
1 tsp mustard
1/8 tsp celery seeds
1/16 tsp salt
1/16 tsp pepper
8 oz. chicken (chopped and cooked)
4 oz. farfalle.
Combine the first 8 ingredients in a medium bowl. Add the cooked chicken and the cooked pasta, and toss well. Cover salad and chill for 1 hour. Serves 2. We really liked it – great for lunches since it’s a cold salad! Anywho, after lunch I got more work done, then went to the gym for 2 more miles, abs and back and biceps. Here’s the upper body workout I did.
Then I was feeling it – so I ran a mile – woo! 7 miles! I headed home and made dinner – Chicken in Tomato Sauce with feta – nom nom nom.
Then me and Austin preceded to have some wine, good conversation and stay up too late – good times though! We even ate dinner in our dining room for the first time – nice! I ended up at 1,871 calories, 207 carbs, 49 fat grams and 111 protein grams – not bad, especially with the 7 miles + ST factored in – woo! Here’s what I ate.
Friday I had a super productive day at work! During lunch I walked 4 miles, then after work I decided to grocery shop with my new meal plan – woo! I went to Trader Joe’s and Publix, and didn’t get home until 7 p.m. Grrr. I DID make a new recipe for dinner though from Monica’s Food Network Magazine - Fresh mozzarella BLT with pesto. Here’s the recipe for one sandwich (one serving):
1 3- to 4-inch baguette (77 grams)
3 Slices turkey bacon
1 ½ tsp pesto
1 ½ tsp fat-free mayonnaise
1 spear romaine lettuce
2 slices tomato
1 slice fresh mozzarella (28 grams)
Salt and pepper to taste.
Slice baguette open, leaving one side attached to form a hinge. Cook bacon in skillet until crispy. Combine pesto with mayo and smear on bottom of bread. Layer romaine, then tomato, bacon and mozzarella. Season with salt and pepper. Close sandwich and serve. We loved it! So yummy – a definite new fave that I plan to start bringing to work – woo! After dinner I cooked/packed for Athens then we had a repeat of the night before – wine, good conversation, music, etc. Love it not raining – I can use my backyard! Anywho – I overdrank… ended up at 2,120 calories, 239 carbs, 59 fat grams and 95 protein grams – eek! Good times though – woo!!! Here’s what I ate.
A few questions!
Where do you eat at home? Dining room, in front of the TV? Depends?
Do you watch college football? Who’s your pick?
K – have WONDERFUL weekends. I can’t wait to catch up on your blogs when I get back home and to my computer on Sunday. FYI – don’t worry about Reuben, my mom is here staying with him. Spoiled pupper!! :)
