After stretching I did some cleaning around the house and laundry. I did not want to be famished when we got to the restaurant so I had a smoothie before we left to go to my parents.
He was good! It was another kale one. I am loving the smoothies lately!
- 2 c de-stemmed, chopped kale
- 1 c frozen mixed berries
- 1 banana (not frozen because I was out 😦 )
- 1 scoop Jay Robb in chocolate
At the restaurant I had two tacos in a crunchy corn shell. I had one chicken (which I did not care for the chicken in it) and one veggie alongside re-fried beans (topped with yummy cheese and green onion!) and some rice. Next time I think I would just get the veggie tacos. They were great. I still feel funny taking pics of my food in a restaurant so it is not pictured. 🙂
My daughter had a great time decorating her beet cake (It was methodical at first then it went on by the handful!). I have some ideas on how to make the color more vibrant for another occasion. It was fun using beet juice as the colorant though!
So I had a smallish piece of cake and a scoop of Neapolitan ice cream. It was very good and took care of some of my cake cravings I have been having lately.
I didn’t think I would get hungry again tonight but I did. When we got home I had some veggies (carrots and celery) with a tablespoon of PB, three walnut stuffed dates and a handful of dark sweet cherries (eaten while I was cleaning and pitting them to go into the freezer)!
I got all the veggies cleaned and cut for the week (or as long as they last, probably less) and I am calling it done on eating for the rest of the night.
I am proud of myself today. I had a celebration with food and did not use it as an excuse to eat like crazy! I am sure I ate a bit too much today, but in the past I probably would have went to my “all or nothing” frame of mind and hit the food a little harder. 🙂 I also allowed myself to have a nice rest day.
I plan to eat cleaner next week, keep my portions in control, and take my workouts down a notch if my knee needs it. I stretched and iced twice today so I hope circuit Monday will be great!
I do have a question: If you are a blogger that documents their food with pictures, did you or do you ever feel weird in a restaurant taking pictures of your food? Do you use a small camera phone or a D-SLR type?
I had a great day. I hope you did too!
Have a good night!
