A Quick Workout and Dinner Out

July 22, 2016

Yesterday was another HOT one here in Kansas City! It was extra hot in the food truck. I get to stand at the window and take orders, so occasionally, I get a bit of a breeze, but the girls at the grill were dying!

When I came home, the last thing that I wanted to do was any kind of exercise, but I’ve had a good week getting back on track, so I didn’t want to skip a workout completely. My daughter sent me the link to a couple of workouts the other day, so I gave one of them a try.

I did this video, 1 Mile Fast Walk Video, and I expected it to be fairly simple. I was surprised at how this got my heart rate up! There were a lot of arm movements, knee lifts and side steps. For a quick workout, I recommend it!

We had dinner plans last night with some family, and we decided on a Mexican Restaurant. When we go out for Mexican, I usually order Fajita’s with no beans and no rice, and extra Fajita Veggies. I switched it up last night.

They have a dish called The Acapulco Skillet. It’s Tilapia, Chicken, Steak and Shrimp over Grilled Onions with Cilantro Cream Sauce, Beans and Rice. I ordered it with no Cilantro Cream Sauce, no Beans, no Rice.

It was a pretty tasty platter of protein, and as Whole30 as I think one can get when ordering out. It’s hard to say if the oil or seasonings were Whole30 compliant, but it seemed like a pretty good option.


It was great to see some family that we hadn’t seen in a long time. The night ended with a long drive with the top down. I’m kinda diggin that.

I’m off to my WW meeting. I’ve missed my WW peeps!

Here are yesterday’s eats…

Breakfast – 4 SP

5 Scrambled Egg Whites, 1 T. Cooked Pork Sausage (just enough for flavor!)  and Bell Pepper with a big Tomato slice and Warm Blueberries with Banana Slices.



Lunch – 6 SP

“To Go” lunch for the Food Truck. Chicken Salad on a bed of Greens with Apple Slices, Carrots, Celery and a few chunks of Tomato.



Afternoon Meal – 4 SP

I knew I would be really hungry when we arrived at the Mexican Restaurant, so I decided to add in a small meal in the late afternoon. This is a mix of several things that I had leftover in the fridge. I made Chicken Cacciatore this week, and while I had no Chicken left, I did have a lot of Cacciatore leftover, so I added 2 ounces of leftover Flank Steak and the last of the leftover Roasted Butternut Squash to my Cacciatore and heated it all up. Pretty tasty bowl of leftovers!



Dinner – 10 SP??

Acapulco Skillet

    That sounds like the perfect Chipotle Bowl! I think some people just have a hard time digesting corn, but I say if it works for you, then no harm done, right?

    Happy Sunday Nancy!

  3. Looks yummy. And I’m assuming that it was the car that had the top down ? 😉

  4. Ok don’t send that Kansas heat over to Kentucky we have enough today. Ok I wish it were just that easy.
    I’m so bad I go to Chipotle just to get the brown rice but everything else I put in the bowl is much better: peppers, chicken, fresh salsa, corn, and lettuce. Everyone is down on corn these days but a little once in awhile shouldn’t be so bad.
