Welcome back to the real world everyone! This morning I woke up and found out I left my portable coffee mug at work on Friday…oops. Think that might stop me?! Nope, Godiva coffee was getting drink. drank. drunk. no matter what! So I took a regular mug into the car and possibly spilled all over my pants. It was so worth it 🙂
Breakfast was a yogurt mess! Surprise, surprise.
The whole team went out to lunch today at Breadbar. It’s hard to cut back on restaurant eating when you have to do it for work! I seriously never noticed how often we go out to eat, but I think I’m really getting a handle on this stuff!!! Today I ordered a bowl of the vegan white bean broth-based soup and half a grilled chicken/grilled veggie sandwich on whole wheat bread. When I looked around the table and saw the cheesy french onion soups & grilled cheese sandwiches, I gave myself a nice pat on the back 🙂
Today at work I got to read through some fun food magazines. I had to stare down this little beauty in Women’s Health!!!
The article was pretty interesting though. It was all about dealing with food temptations. “Research shows that willpower is a kind of mental muscle, and like any muscle, it can get stronger.” Don’t you love that?? I am SO working out my willpower muscle!
Lunch held me over all afternoon, but I got a little snacky around 4 so I had a cinnapple.
I intended to hit up the gym after work but home was calling my name so I headed there instead. Dinner tonight was more portobello…I had bought two and the other one was just staring up at me from the fridge!
According to the Mayo Clinic’s website:
Dietitian’s tip: The meaty-textured portobello mushroom is the perfect stand-in for a hamburger. One portobello mushroom has about 30 calories and no fat or cholesterol. By comparison, a 3-ounce hamburger patty has 235 calories, 16 grams of fat and 76 milligrams of cholesterol.
Sweet! Good thing I totally LOVE portobello mushrooms. I forget about these for a while but I’m sure you will be seeing them more often now that I’ve rekindled the love affair 🙂
I topped my bello with 1 tbsp soyaki sauce, then placed the whole thing under the broiler for 5 minutes on each side. How easy is that?! For the side, I baked some sweet potato fries, red peppers & red onions and heated up a bowl of lemon pepper sprinkled broccoli. Such a light, filling dinner!
For dessert, I had another Skinny Cow of course. Sorry that you guys are stuck with the same picture every morning AND every night!!
Three Things for Tuesday
- Ordered the vegan bean broth soup instead of french onion
- Got my sandwich dry, without the curry mayo
- Switched the egg bread/hamburger roll that came with my sandwich for whole wheat toast
Right now I am watching a bunch of new Lando episodes (Law & Order for anyone who doesn’t hear me call them that all the time haha) but am planning to put myself to bed somewhat early so I have more energy tomorrow. Hope you all had a great day back after the mini-vaycay!!!
