I setpped on the scale this morning, reluctantly, knowing how bad I was this weekend…wait….awful this weekend, but it was soo worth it. It began with dinner at our favorite Italian restaurant with those ooey, gooey, amazing garlic rolls dripping with sinful Parmesan dipping oil to start, zucchini fritté (my veggie…and friend), veal Parmesan (fried of course), pasta with spicy diablo sauce, and lots of wine…LOTS OF AMAZING WINE…..that was one out of three nights. Enough said.
So, needless to say, the girls in my step class on Monday can always tell if I overate and was over served 🍷 during the weekend by the intensity of the class. Today’s step class was a big one 😁. We did a class called ‘double step’ and it’s intense but crazy fun.
After class I was starving, but decided to start the week off right with a light lunch. LOVING salads, which can be totally fattening, today’s lunch was a simple spinach salad with blue cheese crumbles, red onion, sliced fresh strawberries and a light drizzle of balsamic vinegar. I chose cheese over dressing and it was delicious! A little watermelon for desert and I feel satisfied. I’m practicing ‘eating with my eyes,’ which is making the salad pretty enough that my mouth and stomach will like it as much as my eyes do. I’ll let you know if it works!
We have lots of choices which gives us control. Finding variety of fresh goodies in the produce section makes it enjoyable. There are even so many pre-cut choices to save time, just watch the expiration date on the bag.
