April 21, 2015

Yesterday was a full day at home of “to do’s”. After completing most of the “to do’s”, I met a friend at Jazzercise. This is just my second class since being back after the broken collar bone. The first class I did with no weights, and I felt great afterwards. Yesterday, I went with the 4 pound weights, and again, felt great afterwards! Yay!

After Jazzercise, we went to the little neighborhood Mexican joint around the corner, where Monday is Taco night. I ordered two taco’s……..and a Bud Light. After some deep, good girlfriend chat, I had more beer. Sometimes a good long chat with a girlfriend over a few beers, out ranks how many points I’m eating for the day. 

(I’m at the weird weight where I don’t feel fat. I want to get back to my goal weight of 160 and I know I will feel amazing when I get there. I’m stuck at 172 and there just seems to be a mental block keeping me here.)

Here are the rest of yesterday’s eats…..


Egg White Omelet, 14 g of Red Fat Cheese

Trader Joe’s Bread, Toasted

30 g of smashed Avocado

Kiwi and Pear

Frothy Coffee





Zucchini Noodles, Edamame, Corn

Avocado Cream Sauce

Chicken, Cherry Tomatoes


I made the zucchini noodles with a regular old vegetable peeler. I thought they were pretty. 🙂 I played just a little trying to make an avocado cream sauce.

1 Avocado

1/3 C Nonfat Plain Greek Yogurt

Lime Juice

Sea Salt and Cracked Black Pepper

Mix in food processor. 

After assembling my bowl of vegetables and chicken and about a Tablespoon of the avocado cream sauce, and then taking a few bites of it all at room temperature, I decided that it tasted better after I heated it all up just a bit in the microwave. The cream sauce still needed something, but it wasn’t too bad for a little variety.




Banana, Melted Chocolate

Raw Unsweetened Coconut





Taco’s and Bud Light

25 PPV
