The weekend!

This weekend FLEW by... but I guess they always do! So my eats for Saturday...

Breakfast: Quinoa with black beans, corn, and cilantro. I tried to make oatmeal, but it didn't work out. Oh, and a coffee.
Lunch: Quesadilla with goat cheese, roasted red pepper, mixed greens, and chicken. SO GOOD! Also 2 small artichokes, and creamy balsamic dressing to dip.

Molly had some chicken broth. Can you tell that she liked it???

Dinner: I was feeling better, so Walter and I went out to dinner. Since I've been on a sodium kick, i suggested we try a new place I've heard about called Magic Grill. Its a Chinese/stir fry place. I like to call it the "Stir Crazy" of NJ!! We started off with soup, each had a dumpling, and then went up to the "buffet" to make our own stir fry. First we got to pick our meat, which was thinly sliced and frozen in three separate tubs: one each for chicken, steak, and pork. I chose steak. Then we added lo mein noodles (the only choice), and loaded up on veggies! I basically took some of everything except pineapple and tofu. We then got to choose our sauce. We had 4 choices: Mild: sour or sweet; Hot: sour or sweet. I blended mild and hot sour, and Walter went for the sweet blend. We then had to add a ladle of wine, and one of sesame oil, and then someone stir fried it for us.

I wish i took a photo of the dish, because it looked a lot better then it tasted. Don't get me wrong, it was good, but it kind of tasted like regular lo mein. The meat was awful, so i skipped that. Walter went back for seconds, and i couldn't even finish my one bowl I was so full. In conclusion: Watch out Stir Crazy, I'm coming for you next visit!

Today Walter and I made a healthy omelet for breakfast with peppers, onions, cilantro, and shredded cheese. I had that with a slice of rye toast with margarine and jam, and a coffee.
Snack: multi grain chips and hummus (this HAS to stop)
Late Lunch: The rest of the artichokes with balsamic dressing to dip.

I also made turkey chili today, and it came out spicy! I used some chili seasoning we bought in Austin, and it has a kick. I will probably have some for dinner, but i already packed some for lunch tomorrow.

I hope I haven't sabotaged myself with the dinner, and all the chips and hummus I've had this weekend. Even if I didn't loose much weight this week, I know I have started to change my eating habits for the better. Before this week, I went out to lunch EVERY DAY, and didn't eat healthy. This week, I am going to think of some new goals to add to my weight loss journey!

  1. Actually it sounds great. I should take photos of my food, but it would be so boring. Oatmeal, subs and grilled chicken. I always forget about hummus, which is weird, cuz I love it so much. I need to shop. Keep up the good work.
