Happy Monday! Are you ready for the week ahead? I never am. But I did read a lot of inspirational quotes this weekend so I'm going to let those mull around in my brain while I buckle down at work today- a little faux-excitement never hurt anyone!
So as you know, I've been drastically changing my life in order to lose some weight. While I stick to a strict mapped-out diet Monday-Friday, I ingest a weeee bit more calories on the weekend (and off-set it with my caloric intake during the weekdays). Anyhow, since I've been putting so much thought into my food, it was inevitable that I'd turn it into a post eventually.

Every morning I have a Smoothie. This is consistent with the weekdays- I have one of these every day a week. Not only are they insanely yummy, but they're full of nutrients and help me get my fill of Fruits and Veggies. They are ALWAYS comprised of the following: Huge serving of Spinach, 2-3 Servings of Fruits (Usually pick 2 or 3 of the following: Mangoes, Blueberries, Pears, Peaches, Strawberries, Bananas, Raspberries, Kiwis), Basil, Flax Seed, Yogurt and sometimes some Whey Protein and Wheatgrass.
|My weekend DIY Brunch|
So usually I would just have a Smoothie for Breakfast but because it was the weekend and Brunch is basically mandated by the State, instead of having a full smoothie- I had a mid-morning Lunch/Breakfast delight of: Half a Smoothie, Coffee, Scrambled Eggs with multiple Veggies (made by my BF) over Dave's Killer Low-Cal Bread. It was so delicious and so full of protein that I felt full all day.
|Weekend Dinner: God Bless the Crock Pot|
Luckily for me, on Sundays the Boy tends to make a Crock Pot in the morning. So after a day of working-out, cleaning and Laundry (aka GCL) my famished self got to enjoy a Mexican medley of pulled Chicken, Avocado, Shredded Cheese, Onion and Parsley with Enchilada Sauce. To say that I liked it would be the equivalent of stating that I 'like' lipstick. No, no... I LOVE this dinner. All kinds of yum.
So there you have it: a weekend day in the life of my food (keep in mind that I'm up about 10:30 AM on weekends as opposed to 6 AM so I really only need 2 meals on the weekends, in contrast to 3 on Weekdays) I'm hoping to put a post up soon of my weekday meals, they are carefully mapped and plotted out as I plan on wearing a bikini this summer and not be mistaken for Keiko's Fat Cousin.
Happiest, happiest Monday!
