Monday Meals

I started the morning with an awesome Upper body weight workout in circuit fashion.  I found the routine in Muscle and Fitness Hers magazine.  It was quite fun, and made the time FLY by!

I got home, and had breakfast with the kids.  We had some cottage cheese pancakes. It was their idea to turn them green. I really did eat that many!


I ate so much, I didn’t have my second meal till noon.   Mindy, you may like this. It’s still a big hunk of chicken, but it was delicious.  I dipped a chicken tender in an egg wash, then bread crumbs.  Put it in a pan with a bit of olive oil till it browned on both sides, then baked it in the oven with some spaghetti sauce and a little mozzarella cheese. Only for 23 minutes so it was still juicy, not dry! It was great!!  The Diet Coke… well, you know!  Then apple with almond butter.  I find the unsweetened, no salt almond butter is way easier to stick to 1 TBL than sweetened peanut butter.  If I could think of peanut butter like Kathleen… if it doesn’t need to be stirred, its like a jar full of lard- Gross!

That’s when I realized… “Get ahold of yourself.  Have something with a little more substance so you don’t want to keep snacking”.  So I had this yummy peanut butter balance bar.

Oh yeah, then a string cheese.


I’m having such a difficult time deciding to study for Bio chem!  I keep thinking, I’ll just retake it in the fall with an easier teacher (since I won’t have any classes to take this fall, and my current teacher is SUPER difficult!!).  That kind of attitude is making it really hard to get ready for the test I’m supposed to take this week!
