Monday once again

This was dinner last night, chicken, whole wheat tortillas, light mayo, brie and spinach. I failed to photograph my food today, but I had the same breakfast as yesterday and went out for lunch and had a turkey panini. Dinner was a green smoothie and popcorn because of the large lunch. I am still not 100 percent over my cold so I did not work out this morning but I am hoping to get back to the gym tomorrow morning. Of course, we are supposed to get 3 to 5 inches of snow tonight, so I am not sure my apartment gym will be open in the morning but I am going to get up and try to get some sort of workout accomplished. If it snows, I am going to try and get some good pictures of the weather since I did not get any good pictures from the last snowfall before Christmas.

Sunday Morning Oatmeal

This is my standard breakfast these days, a bowl of scottish oatmeal with soy milk and a mug of coffee (usually two mugs actually). I added a spoonful of almond butter to my oatmeal for some healthy fats but I did not really like it that much so I will probably just stick to the oatmeal and soy milk. The cats were really interested in being in my photos until they realized there were no kitty treats involved and then they disappeared into the bedroom to nap in the sun. I have no real plans for today, I am trying to avoid the stores and the post holiday rush but for once I have nothing else that needs to get done today.

Easy Dinner

Clearly I grew up eating texmex because this was my default easy dinner choice today. Two flour tortillas with reduced fat sour cream, pico de gallo, roast chicken, and reduced fat cheese and a diet Dr. Pepper. I really need to work on the lighting in my kitchen but I will work that out tomorrow. In the meantime, I cleaned my entire apartment today and took a nap because I am still only operating at about 80 percent with this head cold. I am going to watch some tv and then off to an early bed in the hopes that this cold will finally be a thing of the past by the end of the weekend.

Back with photos

Well after a year I am back, maybe. We will see how it goes. Anyway, I am going to try blogging my food through photographs now to keep myself more accountable than I have been in the past. This is lunch today, a green smoothie filled with spinach, a banana, milk, agave syrup, a spoonful of Amazing Grass, and a splash of eggnog (it is the Christmas season after all). Imagine this flute times about 4 and you can see what I had for lunch. I got sick right before Christmas and have spent the whole holiday curled up asleep in my apartment so this is the first real healthy food I have had in days. My body was craving something green so I bought spinach at the store and broke out the champagne flute to make it feel fancy for once. I read about green smoothies on the web and figured I would try them and see if you could taste the spinach and you really cannot taste anything besides the milk and banana. Hopefully this will help my body feel healthier and I will be able to get back to the gym by Monday (totally not an option right now with a head cold).
