Month: November 2009

Yep, tomorrow is back to reality.  I’ll actually have to set an alarm tomorrow! :(  But I’ve had a great week, and got everything accomplished that I set out to. 😀

For breakfast I had 1 cup of diced potatoes, Pam fried with 1/2 ounce of cheese, 1 egg and 1 sausage patty (which I cut in half to give myself the illusion on having two!)  Oh, and I may have splashed it with Frank’s hot sauce and Tabasco! 😀

For lunch I had one serving of my BSI – entry.  I bought broccoli when I went to the store, so I am going to add steamed broccoli when we have it for dinner one night this week.  Don’t worry Tony, you’ll be having bacon wrapped meatloaf!

After spending time on the computer catching up on what everyone is doing, I put my menu together.  Two things I am going to be making for my lunch this week with leftover turkey is Kevin’s Turkey Pho Soup (i couldn’t find star anise – anyone know where to even find it at the store?)  and then subbing turkey for chicken in my Bahn-Mi Style Sandwich.

But I hit the gym on the way.  I didn’t feel like running, so I did the spin bike.  What I do is a 5 minute warm up, then 5 minute hill climb (just tighten the resistance) at 50 rpm, then bring the resistance down and sprint for 5 minutes at 95 rpm, and alternate.  I ended up going for 45 minutes.  In the end I biked 8.01 miles!  I had to do the conversion at home since this bike was in kilometers!

My step-son Joe ended up staying for dinner, so I made a taco fiesta!  I knew I wanted a serving of tortilla chips, so I swapped out my corn tortillas for boston bibb lettuce.

  • 4 lettuce cups
  • 2 ounces taco meat
  • 1 ounce cheddar cheese
  • .25 cup canned black beans
  • .25 cup canned white shoepeg corn
  • 2 tablespoons Mild Taco Sauce
  • Salsa Verde
  • Hot Banana Peppers
  • 1 ounce of tortilla chips
  • 1 ounce of guacamole

Holy yum, was this good!  I lined everything up in the kitchen and everyone just helped themselves.  Makes for a quick clean up too (thanks for cleaning the kitchen Hannah!).

My grocery store makes the best salsa verde – luckily its too spicy for the rest of my family, so its all mine!  Although, it does have onions in it so I have to puree it :D  Yep – only $1!
