Week 3 Day 1
I was back to the strictest diet today. Breakfast was egg whites with lean chicken sausage and broccoli. Not bad. Lunch was a mixed green salad with avocado and tomatoes and a teeny bit of raspberry vinaigrette. I was in a little rush so I went for a protein bar before my workout. Low sugar, high protein and tasty. My workout today was back, triceps, abs and a little elliptical to burn my calories for the day. I really liked the back stuff, and most of the triceps stuff, but I still couldn't do the Seated dips. I don't even know if I was any better at them than last week. I blew through abs and the elliptical and made my way home to make dinner. Tonight was carne asada, pre-marinated by Trader Joe's. It's so good and we all love it. I had sautéed some mushrooms, sweet onions and mushrooms to go with the steak. I fixed my "tacos" with iceberg lettuce leaves, tomatoes, green onions and a little guacamole. The kiddos had theirs with corn tortillas and some shredded cheese. They did a great job of trying the sautéed veggies too. My mom was over and she decided to try a lettuce taco too and she liked it. We let the kids choose one of their pieces of Halloween candy for dessert...and I had to leave the room. I have such a sweet tooth and just couldn't be in the same room to watch them choose and eat their piece of candy. We negotiated with them and agreed to let them keep 8 pieces of candy and we bought the rest. After tonight, they each have 6 pieces left, so I guess I'll have to avoid that candy a little longer.
