TGIF, my friends!
It’s been a great week. I started it off outlining some goals for myself this week. I can’t wait to share how I did on them with you. But first, a little catch up time.
Last night Tommy & I went to dinner with some friends of ours. It was so nice to catch up with them and sit down and share a meal together. We planned this dinner way back in January but didn’t actually make it happen until late September. That’s shameful. I hate that. Must work to be better at getting together with people like that. I missed them so much.
This morning I made myself some peek-a-boo eggs for breakfast. They are soooo yummy! Definitely my favorite breakfast right now. Not to mention it’s only 240 calories and a whopping 18g of protein! Yes!
For lunch I had a fantastic offer come up this morning to meet a couple of my favorite ladies! I couldn’t pass it up so I got my crap together quickly so I could head to the gym to get in a good workout before lunch.
Lunch was a (healthy-ish?) plate consisting of chalupas and black beans. Very good!
For dinner I had some mahi mahi filets that I wanted to cook. I was looking for a good, but simple, recipe for it when Alexis found this one. Exactly what I was looking for! I cooked it up on the stove and it was absolutely perfect! However, I only had two small filets so when I divided it up into “husband size, wife size and kid size” I ended up with this small piece. Bummer…I could have used SOOO much more! Next time…
In addition to the fish we had I also made potatoes with pico de gallo and grilled vegetables. So yummy!
Earlier this week I set aside some goals for myself.
1) Keep my food within calorie range – I kicked so much ass with this. I’m so proud of myself! Each day this week I had a calorie deficit of at least 400 calories per day. Exactly what I was looking for. Check!
2) Go to the gym – I made it to the gym Mon, Wed and Fri for cardio. Check!
Bonus: Burn at least 400 calories with each visit. Double and triple check!!
3) Strength training – I was successful in doing strength training twice this week from home. I followed the SparkPeople strength training suggestions to a “T”. Check!
4) Record a loss – This is still pending. I officially weigh in on Sunday and I’ll let you know then. (Hint: I am down at least 3 lbs as of typing this)
It’s been a good week! 🙂 Can’t wait to see what the weekend has in store.
