A Mexican Thursday

TGIF! I seriously can’t believe it is Friday. This week flew by, in a good way.

The weather here in Southeast Michigan has been a roller coaster. One day its 85 degrees and the next its raining and 40. It’s been horrible for my mood and my allergies. Yesterday it got dark all of a sudden, started pouring rain and then stopped 5 minutes later. I guess that’s what happens with summer thunderstroms, but it makes me just want to curl up in a ball and watch a movie on the couch. I wonder what I’ll be doing this weekend?!

Let’s dive into how I fueld my body yesterday. Side note: I normally don’t look at food as fuel, but rather as a delicious event that fills my soul.

BREAKFAST – A quick and easy breakfast is always on my mind. So, a banana and a granola bar is definitely a constant choice.

I know I’ve said that these granola bars are really small, but I bought them and need to finish them.

LUNCH – One of the positive of working form home on certain days is being able to make what I want for lunch.  I was in the mood for some cheese, so I made a cheese quesadilla in a whole wheat tortilla, a side of light sour cream and strawberries.  It was surprisingly filling.

I kept working throughout the afternoon and then it was time for a snack.

SNACK – Some yummy cottage cheese.

In hindsight, this wasn’t a good choice for me.  About an hour after eating this, I headed to the gym for some fitness.  I had it in my mind that I would do some cardio on the elliptical and then weights.  Well, my body had other insights.

I got on the elliptical (side note: the woman next to me was wearing a top that was mesh in the back and no bra….) and after about 3 minutes my stomach started cramping up like you wouldn’t believe.  I wanted to push through it, but after 20 minutes, I just couldn’t keep going.  I got off and did some stretching.  It wasn’t a great work out, but I had to listen to my body.  I had a thought that I was lactose-intolerent because of this, but I’m not sure.  Do you run into these issues?

DINNER – I sat on the couch for an hour before it was dinner time.  I wasn’t really hungry, but knew I’d be starving if I didn’t eat.  So…tacos!  Talk about a Mexican day.

I made a taco salad with romaine lettuce, ground chuck, 2 crispy taco shells, a few cherry tomatoes, 2 dollops of sour cream and some cheese.  It was delicious.  I love how the shells add crunch to the salad.  It’s much needed.

TGIF!
