WOOHOO! Friday has arrived!
This morning I was up at 5:30am to meet my friend Stacey at Sloan's Lake for a brisk walk around the park. I love our weekly walks that we've started doing. It's such a nice way to talk about how we're doing with our weight-loss / fitness / food goals, to encourage each other, and to be supportive. I just love 'em!
Tonight a bunch of us are going to see Mile High Sci Fi make fun of a crappy Steven Segal movie. If you ever used to watch Mystery Science Theater, it's just like that - but live. I've been a bunch of times, and they are SO hilarious!
Wasa Cracker stack-up* (This invention of mine came out of the fact that I was craving something salty rather than sweet for breakfast this morning, but not really sure what I wanted. I didn't have any eggs or tofu to scramble, so I got creative. I also have read that Sardines are ridiculously good for you with the Omega 3's & such, so I got a low-sodium organic version packed in water from Whole Foods, and finally cracked it open to give 'em a try. I thought they were going to be scary-looking, but they just looked like little pieces of fish! No eyeballs staring up at me, thank goodness. They were actually pretty delish! Yay for rhyming)!
*Whole Wheat Wasa Crackers (2) with about 2 tbsp veggie cream cheese, arugula, about 2 tbsp of marinara sauce, onions sauteed in a pat of vegan butter, and about 2 sardines (crumbled).
Coffee w/ some honey and splash of 1/2 & 1/2 (OK, this was my last try, and it's awful. I can't bear to drink coffee without my usual amount of sweetener and "creamer". It's bitter, and horrible - no wonder I consume so many calories trying to mask the flavor. And this is supposed to be the "good" stuff! I wish all coffee was as smooth as the kind we had in Italy - I bet I could drink that without anything in it! Sigh... oh well.)
Leftover Curry Lunch w/ Cat & Kow! It was so beautiful outside, and this made for a lovely afternoon! :)
Goosetown Tavern dinner (Gourmet grilled cheese on Rye with pomegranate jelly, side salad w/ balsamic vinaigrette, pickle). I used the dunk & eat method for my salad dressing, so I only used about 1/4 of it, which was awesome. Also, I really wanted a drink when we got to the movie, but John was SO good about encouraging me not to do it. Thanks John, baby!
