Well it's Tuesday!!???!

Sorry I have been out of pocket for a few meals. There has been a bit of a shake-up at work and I have not been able to get to the business of blogging!

Pre-workout breakfast was the usual, a hard boiled egg with Lawreys seasoning salt.

Today I woke at 5:15 am and headed out to the gym. I did a quick 10 min warm up on the elpitical then it was off to the weight room for upper body moves. I am discovering that my right side (dominate side) is stronger than the left. I am not quite sure what to do about it...... I did 50 mins of free weights then a quick 10 mins of abs.

After workout breakfast was an egg fried in Pam + 2 strips of turkey bacon. I also munched on a few blueberrys as I made my lunch to take with me. When I got to work I scarfed down a whole wheat banana blueberry muffin (homemade). Not so much that I was hungry but they taste so much better when they are really fresh. I just made them on Sunday.

Snack today at 10:30 am was a pink lady apple with almond butter. Lunch was a mixed greens salad with seeds trail mix (pumpkin, sunflower, almonds and dried fruits), cucumbers, 2 strips of shreaded turkey bacon and watermelon vinegrette. I was super excited about the vinegrette at the store when I sampled it. When I actually ate it today it was tasting super sweet to me. The dressing is fat free but has 20 grams of sugar in 2T. So I think I will save the rest for when we have company over. I also warmed up two Quorn veggie chicken cutlets. Pick some of these up if you see them in your grocery store freezer. They are soy and meat free and have a chicken-like texture. Pretty tasty with sweet and sour dip or BBQ sauce.

Late day snack today was 1/2 of an Ezekiel english muffin (cinnamon rasin) topped with almond butter and a banana. Our toaster at work stinks so I won't be bringing any more english muffins to toast!

Dinner tonight (the plan anyways) is whole wheat spaggetti mixed with regular spaggetti topped with grain fed ground beef and organic tomatoe sauce. I love this organic sauce from HEB/Central Market. The tomatoe basil is so fresh tasting..... I like it so much I don't want to try any other flavors.
