Hey Guys! How is everyone? It feels like ages since I’ve posted but life has been a bit busy. Thank you to all of you for the moving well wishes last week! The move went well and was actually pretty painless. I’d been packing things up and moving them to the house over the last few months so over the weekend we just had the few things I couldn’t live without and the little bit of furniture I kept. My brother came to Boston and took the rest of my furniture for when he moves out which worked out perfectly. Since the move went so smoothly I had the afternoon and most of Sunday to get unpacked and closets organized. It was an exhausting but productive weekend and I was glad to start the week feeling settled. I’m adjusting to a new commute and routine and have been exhausted for the last couple days…thus no posting.
Unlike last week this week my meals are much more balanced and planned this week! Let’s take a look shall we?
With warm weather around us and a longer commute these days I’m going for quick and easy in the morning. This week I’ve been having Raisin Bran Crunch with fresh blueberries and skim milk.
To drink I have my Skinnygirl Daily Cleanse. I also take a coffee to take with my for my drive.
This week I’m having peppered turkey breast on a sandwich thin with American cheese, spinach and honey mustard. On the side I have some Wheat Thin Toasted Chips (so good!). I had a nectarine to go with it. For snacks I packed my daily banana, a yogurt and a granola bar. Lately I haven’t been eating the yogurt or granola bar. I really try to listen to my body and only snack when I’m truly hungry and not out of boredom.
Eating throughout the day in small amounts really helps to keep me satisfied and never full.
Monday night after I headed out for a run and Michael got home from yoga we made chicken Paninis. We grilled thin sliced chicken breasts on the grill with salt and pepper. On to the Panini press went Italian bread with homemade pesto, mozzarella cheese, spinach and fresh tomato. I made kale chips with parmesan cheese on it. We had some leftover homemade potato salad on the side that Mike’s Mom made us. I ended up only eating half my sandwich…again listening to my body!
This dinner was delicious and came together so quickly!
Ok! I’m off to get this day going! Stay cool out there, it’s supposed to be a hot one with high’s around 95 in Boston today!
