More Tacos Please.

I ended up freezing the rest of my leftover taco stuff from Memorial day.  I think by Day 5, even though I said I could eat Mexican every day, I need to broaden my horizons next week, with say, you know – fruit and vegetables?  They have been sorely lacking this past week.

Breakfast was ground sirloin egg tacos with cilantro, cheese and salsa.  These two tacos come in at 350 calories, 12 fat, 28 carbs, 1 fiber and 13 protein.

It was perfect running weather yesterday.  Overcast, around 50 degrees.  I got my running shoes on and did my walk/run a song.  It felt really good!  50 minutes later I was back at my desk. Sad smile  I don’t know what it is about Friday afternoons at work but they just d r a g.   Even with a short week the work week felt long.

More Mexican for lunch!  This time it was the marinated skirt steak, 1/2 a cup of Mexican rice, chips and salsa.  Lunch comes in at 549 calories, 19 fat, 41 carbs, 7 fiber and 23 grams of protein.

When I left work there was a huge storm cloud – literally right over my office and it was blue skies everywhere else – so weird!

I texted Tony “do you want me to pick up a pizza at Dominick’s?”  Yep!  A bought the $5 dollar sausage pizza, and then bought 1/4 pound of pepperoni for $1.25.  I added mushrooms and green olives to Tony’s side – and I added diced red pepper to my side.

My guess is dinner is 536 calories, 24 fat, 38 carbs, 2 fiber and 21 protein.

I had a movie date with Hannah last night!  We saw What to Expect When You Are Expecting with Cameron Diaz and Chris Rock.  We hit up Trader Joe’s on the way in for bottled water (.69 cents!) and some pretzel thins for the movie.  When we got to the movie I noticed the same bottles of water we bought – cost $5 at the theater!

The movie was cute, somewhat predictable and had a few laugh out loud moments.  But I recommend waiting until this comes out – not sure it was worth the movie theater ticket price – but it was fun hanging out with Hannah. Open-mouthed smile

Stats for the Day:

  • 1675 calories (includes the pretzel thins!)
  • 68 fat, 153 carbs, 70 protein
  • 50 minute walk/run at lunch
  • average blood sugar 138

I have Kim of Mo’Betta to thank for today’s Inspirational Diet video.  I’ve probably watched it ten times already.  YOU WILL NEED A KLEENEX BY THE END!  What inspires me about this video is that you can almost put yourself in his shoes – he’s running as fast as he can in the beginning, then he slows down, maybe is talking to himself about just quitting, but then decides to speed up and keep going.

I wrote down this quote a while back, and don’t know who to give credit to, but it reminded me of this video.  Make it a great day!

“Each day is a special gift from God, and while life may not always be fair, you must never allow the pains, hurdles, and handicaps of the moment to poison your attitude and plans for yourself and your future. You can never win when you wear the ugly cloak of self-pity, and the sour sound of whining will certainly frighten away any opportunity for success. Never again. There is a better way.”

  1. I ended up working late on Friday, it was brutal 🙂 We also just picked up some pizza and made it at home. Nice way to wrap up a busy day, and now I have some leftovers in the fridge. I hope you have an awesome weekend.

  2. Those clouds were intense! You were smart to stop at TJs. I am always cringing at the movie food/drink prices but the kids think the popcorn/slushees are part of the experience…

  3. I need to work on more veggies too! I like to wait until movies come to the cheap theater. Hunger Games just hit our cheap theatre and we’re going tonight. $10 for all 5 of us to see a movie! Nice!

  4. I purposely didn’t put my mascara on yet. It’s a good thing. Wow that video got me. I work with people everyday who have resigned themselves to “I can’t.” No amount of inspiration seems to work for some people. That little boy is yet another example of courage and strength. He certainly inspires me.

    Beautiful quote too. Enjoy your weekend Biz!

  5. Mmmm…pizza. The tacos look pretty tasty too! What a great video. The kid would lap me in no time. I would have to walk and I’m sure my back would hurt by lap two. Like him, i would finish though. Loved the support he received from his school mates.

  6. Those clouds are crazy! I’m glad to see you’re still going strong in your inspirational diet! I had my weigh in/measure and while my weight stayed the same (to the tenth! ugh) I lost inches. I’m so thankful b/c I don’t know if I would have been able to push through and keep it up if I hadn’t seen progress to motivate me!

  7. Wow, those clouds are amazing! I’ve been wanting to see that movie – good to know it’s probably worth waiting to come out on DVD 🙂

    Awesome cloud photos!! The pizza and all the Mexican look really good! I’m sure you’re sick of it by now but it still looks good!

  9. I know what you mean about the week dragging. I couldn’t wait for Saturday!
    I want to see that movie but may wait.
    Hope you’re enjoying the rest of your weekend!

  10. I hear you about days dragging on- can you listen to music at work to help pass the time? It helps me sometimes. My kids have 3 more days of school which are dragging then to SML to see my folks- that is if my little girl doesn’t have a cold- she started coughing this morning:(

  11. Oh yes, I cried when I watched it, and I cried when my girls watched it (I could still HEAR it!). Awesome kid, with awesome classmates!
