…highlights of Kersten’s world. Well, not really…I mean no one’s banging down my email inbox asking me to come back. I know my little blog gets readers, I just wish there were more of you, and that you would comment more actively. Any suggestions?
Pretty lunch–salad had romaine, avocado, grape tomatoes, burrito guts, verde sauce. That glorious fruit has been my go-to for afternoon snacking as well
Mondo dinner of steamed corn with SmartBalance Light, oven roasted butternut chips with Northwoods seasoning and garlic salt (too salty), veggie burger with sauteed mushrooms, ketchup for the burger and chips. I ate too fast
Genisoy chocolate shake mix, almond milk, ???
Pina!! I sliced up this baby and enjoyed the fruits of my labor.
I. love. fruity. cereal. Kashi Go Lean Crunch with fabu blueberries, cherries, and strawberries, covered with almond milk I think.
My eyes enjoyed this more than my stomach–quesadilla with sauteed veggies, cheese, sour cream, guac, tomatoes. Too many onions + too much sour cream + too much cheese + too much food = unhappy tummy.
When the tum wouldn’t settle I went for 1 tablet of Alka Seltzer. You ever use it? At first it doesn’t seem better, but then comes the burp that cures your woes. I know, gross details, but it works.
For some insane reason I thought I needed a treat later. I ate one square of Cadbury milk chocolate with almonds, went “meh,” and instead had some roasted almonds and dark chocolate pieces.
More fruity cereal, but this time with Nature’s Path GingerZing Granola. I like the texture of this granola, but it is missing something. Salt maybe? It isn’t very zing-y to me. I miss my crack–NP Pumpkin Flax Plus Granola.
A pretty lunch Salad had romaine, pickle, avocado, grape tomatoes, cremini mushroom, balsamic, crunchy chow mein noodles, and a veggie Gardenburger.
Dinner tonight at McCormick & Schmick’s Fish House. The menu was tough since nearly every entree had seafood or meat, but they are quite flexible with preparations. I had them leave the fish off of the mushroom pesto pasta, and asked for extra veggies to be added in. It tasted really good, but I was expecting a real pesto, not a creamy white wine sauce with pesto in it. The cream was too heavy for me, and totally weighed me down tonight.
Sometimes I think I want creamy and rich things, but when I eat them I often regret it b/c I feel super crappy. That helps me avoid the temptation to get/make them I suppose! I did bring home half of this, and figure I’ll eat it for lunch tomorrow with more veg added in. I’ve run out of other things to eat for lunch, so I’ll just have to grin and bear it.
This was Chris’ dinner–filet mignon with the obvi veggies. I thought it was pretty and deserved a pic.
My exercise this week:
Monday–legs, abs, 30 min on the mill
Tuesday–upper body, 50 min on the mill
Wednesday–off. too stuffed and gross feeling to move!
Thursday–legs, abs, 50 min on the mill.
I suppose that’s about it! I can’t remember all of my genius “oh I should put that on the blog” moments from the last four days
