A great Thursday evening

Today was a crazy, stressful day at work. I felt totally emotionally drained by the time I got out of there. I stayed late at work, so I missed Spin, BUT I came home and changed right into work out clothes. I decided to try one of my new DVDs from The Firm. I did a 25min Express Strength workout then hopped on my elliptical for 20mins. All in all it was a great 45min at home work out and I felt MUCH better!

I went out again for lunch with co-workers. We all agreed on Jose Tejas because we all love the salads there. Jose Tejas is a great Tex-Mex place near the office.  It was kind of a business lunch. We had alot of planning to do regarding this big project we are currently working on so we discussed it over lunch. I ordered, again, a salad with Blackened, grilled salmon. This salad was just as yummy as the one yesterday, but was served with a Mexican Twist. It had corn, and black beans! I asked for Honey Mustard on the side.

I had NO clue what I felt like having for dinner. The Fiance gets home late from work tonight so it was just me. I had lean, boneless pork chops in the fridge that were supposed to be last nights' dinner. I cooked them up for Matt. I was so not in the mood for meat, I know, that sounds weird, but I wasn't. I heated up some leftover brown rice, and cooked up some spinach and Brussels sprouts. I needed a protein source, but it was going to be meat! I looked in the pantry...Kidney Beans! Perfect. I cooked them in a pan with Non Stick Olive Oil Spray, diced white onion, scallions and Chili Powder. This was a perfect meal. I couldn't even finish the beans. All that fiber filled me up. 

I really want to start eating 2 meatless dinners each week. This will not go over well with the Matt, so I will do this when I am on my own for dinner. 

I can't believe it is is Friday tomorrow. YAY! This has been a busy week. 

See ya in the am.

  1. Good luck with the meatless meals. Mark and I did a meatless month in August. I continued on and he went back to meat, although now he is cool with not eating it sometimes. Like tonight we had beans for protein and the other night we had tofu! Make something delicious and he won't knw!
