All I can say is WOW! We are not up to 38 people for our 101 Days of Summer Challenge – yahoo! I hope together we can virtually keep each other motivated when the weather is nice, another beer would be nice, or maybe that extra scoop of your Aunt Bea’s famous potato salad!
You’d think with the long weekend that I would go to the grocery store and meal plan, but seriously, we have enough food in this house that needs to get eaten before I buy anything new!
I started out my day with 28 minutes of Yoga on the Edge. The only thing on the edge was that the woman was at the edge of a pier by a large body of water! While the moves were good, the voice over sucked. One example: “let’s move into triangle pose – there are as many different ways to do triangle pose as there are people in the world.” WTF?
Breakfast yesterday was two egg white corn tortilla tacos with sauteed peppers and strawberries and the best damn blueberries on the side – I normally don’t like to eat blueberries by themselves, but these were amazing!
I had planned on hitting the new gym at lunch, but my blood sugar was at 81, so a pre-workout snack was in order.
When I was all done, here were my stats: a total of 49:52 minutes, 9.82 miles and I burned 354 calories – nice!
Lunch was eclectic – I had a serving of my soup from Memorial Day, with sliced cucumbers and baby carrots. One of my co-workers just bought a Weber smoker and has been taunting me with all the delicious food he has made and will make! I gave me some ribs to try and I ate one on the side – so fricken good – fall off the bone tender and so smoky! Thanks Adam! Lunch comes in at: 411 calories, 26 carbs, 23 protein, 11.6 fat and 6.5 fiber.
I was trying to think what I could make for dinner using the leftover flank steak from Memorial Day. I decided on stir-fry! OMG, I made the best sauce! I normally give Hannah and Tony House of Tsang Classic stirfry sauce, and I use the spicy szechuan. I quickly realized that my bottle of hot stirfry sauce was at the office, so on to plan B!
