I slipped a little this weekend, but it’s over now and I’ve moved on. And I’m down 5 lbs, so there’s that!
Friday breakfast was a banana with peanut butter and (unsweetened) coconut. I wasn’t sure if it would all go together well but it was really good!
I snacked on unsalted cashews and cherries.
Lunch was a treat! Chipotle, baby. And for the first time the brown rice was actually cooked perfectly. They usually serve it underdone, probably because it takes longer to cook than white rice and that’s what they’re used to. I did only intend to eat half of it but, well, I didn’t.
For dinner we went out to a local restaurant where I got a veggie burger with no bun and a side of veggies instead of fries. Not my favorite dinner, plus I was still pretty full from my enormous lunch.
The weekend started well, with me making another breakfast hash of onions, eggs, sweet potatoes, mushrooms, and sausage.
But then we went out for lunch and I just really didn’t want a salad. I got a veggie sandwich with avocado and cheese. I took most of the cheese off and ate it open-faced. It really wasn’t great and I only ate half of it, but then three of us split a nice chunk of carrot cake that was DIVINE.
For dinner we went to Denny’s because we hadn’t gone grocery shopping and the fridge was bare. Plus, kids eat free at ours on Saturday nights. I got a breakfast skillet so the only cheat in there were the white potatoes, which I’m not supposed to have.
Sunday started with a banana, and then later I heated up the leftovers of my skillet with some eggs. I can’t remember at all what I had for lunch, even though it was just yesterday. Dinner was a turkey burger on mixed greens, and dessert was delicious sweet cantaloupe.
So, even though I cheated a bit this weekend, I still think I made some decent choices. It’s all about balance, right?
