I am so glad that I know Lori because without her, I would never have thought to have bagel Wednesday. I don’t have one every Wednesday, but I do think about her when I do. Sesame bagel, egg beaters, 1 slice of mortadella and .8 ounce of provolone cheese. Starting your day with a bagel and cheese? Priceless. 421 calories, 13 at, 45 carbs, 2 fiber and 26 protein.
It was gorgeous yesterday – sunny skies and 70 degrees. Didn’t even need a jacket – it was a great 50 minute walk at lunch.
I ended up eating half of my leftovers. Yep, you read that right – I ate it out on Tuesday night, ate half of what was leftover for lunch yesterday and still have enough for lunch today. I did end up adding some steamed broccoli to mine because I couldn’t remember how many veggies were left. 360 calories, 9.4 fat, 55 carbs, 2 fiber and 12 protein.
So it was a year ago yesterday that my job changed. Well, I am still with some of the same people, but in a different location. I can’t believe its been a year already! And while my new office doesn’t have a stove, it does have a grill so I think I’ll be bringing back the Friday grill lunches. I pick a menu and everyone pays me for making lunch. Winning!
I do miss a couple women I worked with. It’s so weird with me. I could have lunch with you every single day for years, but the minute I leave a job, I basically close a chapter and move on. I used to cook lunches for them too and was reading a post from last year – my one friend texted me and said:
I have officially eaten my last Biz lunch. The experience was wonderful with a dark cloud of sadness hovering. Thank you for all the love and effort you put into every meal. I washed my dish and had no where to bring it . . .
We ended up having a champagne toast in the afternoon and we had snacks – garlic toasts, salami, cheese, pickles, etc. I didn’t think I ate that much, but when I added it up it was around 450 calories, 28 fat, 24 carbs, 1 fiber and 24 protein. You know I loves my cheese.
I missed doing my 30 minute stretch and could already feel my heel pain creeping back, so the first thing I did when I got home was do that. I swear – it’s the best 30 minutes spent – I feel so good when I am done. I’ve done a series record on our DVR and now have 9 different workouts to choose from.
And this morning? No heel pain at all.
I baked up 2 corn tortillas (400 degrees for 6-8 minutes) and had 3 ounces of leftover chicken taco meat, 1/3 cup of Veronica’s refried beans, 1.5 ounces of avocado and my baked chips – 406 calories, 12 fat, 40 carbs, 10 fiber and 34 protein.
Although I am going to be on the hunt for these tortillas this weekend:
Danica bakes these tortilla chips – 2 tortillas cup up and baked are only 2 points – 24 is only 4 points! Perfect for healthy nachos.
