Yep, couldn’t think of a better title than that! Thanks for all your support with my last post about my numbers – I am glad I was able to push a few of you to get your blood work done! 😀 Nicole is going to post about triglycerides on her blog today – check it out if you have a chance! She also answered a question for me on her blog yesterday too – thanks Nicole!
Breakfast yesterday was an egg white/zucchini/pepper jack cheese burrito with clementinas on the side. So filling!
Before I went to work out, I checked my blood sugar and it was 101 – perfect! Except when I exercise that number drops like a stone, so I decided to drink a 10 ounce bottle of apple juice to bring up my blood sugar number so I could work out. Only problem?? As soon as I started to run on the treadmill, the apple juice was sloshing around in my stomach – I thought I was going to be sick!
So I ended up with a suck ass 45 minute walk on the treadmill at 4.0 mph. So while I was disappointed I didn’t run the whole time, I told myself “at least you moved for 45 minutes!”
Lunch was leftover Cincinnati chili from our chili dog night. I diced in a 3 oz. baked potato, added 1 tablespoon ff sour cream on top and had cucumbers with ff ranch on the side.
And then about 4:00 I could feel my blood sugar start to drop. I tried to bring it up with this – Reese’s peanut butter cups are my bosses favorite candy and we always have them on hand.
While tasty, that didn’t work, so I drank half a can of this. I used to love orange and grape Nehi as a kid – do they even make Nehi anymore??
While I was getting ready for work yesterday, I looked up at my menu board and realized I had chicken parmesan sandwiches on the menu – only one problem – I never made the marinara sauce!! We bought 5 pounds of tomatoes over the weekend because they were .69 cents a pound.
Luckily Tony was able to make the sauce – but it was a battle. That’s the only thing about making sauce from tomatoes – some are tart, some are sweet. He played around with it all day and it came out delicious in the end. I plan on making a pork cacciatore for dinner tonight with the sauce. 😀
My inspiration for dinner came from Bon Appetit magazine – they had a chicken parmesan burger on sour dough bread. You put a chicken breast with basil and Parmesan cheese in a food processor and make chicken patties, then cook them, put mozzarella cheese and sauce on. But when Hannah asked what we were having for dinner, she said “leave the food processor alone!” See, she loves my traditional chicken parm! But I still had the sour dough bread on my brain, so I made chicken parm grilled cheese sammies.
And here is mine!
My sandwich ended up being 3 ounces of bread, 4.5 ounces of chicken, 1 ounce of mozzarella cheese, and about 1/3 cup marinara sauce.
Stats for Wednesday: 45 minute walk on treadmill
I made Cooking Light’s Bacon Ranch Mac n Cheese for lunch today – I’ll post the recipe tomorrow if it tastes good!
Only 2 more days til the weekend! Hope you have a great day! 😀
