Ever since the wedding I have been kind of out of it. I didnt join a gym because we didnt know how long we would be in Gainesville, and I hate running outside so even though I did it, I dont think I go the best workouts out of it. When we moved to Gainesville we ate out pretty much the whole first few days. I had gained 4 pounds since the wedding but didnt really stress about it too much. Now that we are in a stable environment again, I have been tracking my calories and hitting the treadmill again and have lost most of those 4 pounds pretty easily. Just eating right has helped me out, and with Adam out of town the past few days it was even easier to eat a quick and small dinner. Heres a glimpse at what Ive been consuming:
I also drink iced coffee and green tea to fill up on liquids.
For lunch I have been eating a lot of flatbread wraps with the Flat Out Multigrain Breads. Theyre 100 calories a piece and really tasty. One day I made shrimp salad (shrimp boiled in water and old bay seasoning, cooled and mixed with light mayo and celery), or Ill just use lunch meat. I am in love with the Boars Head Jerk Turkey meat - it is so spicy and delicious with some light mayo and lettuce. I will also probably grill some chicken with franks hot sauce and roll it up next week. I pair my wrap with carrots and hummus or pepperidge farm baked crackers.
For labor day we will be grilling stuffed turkey burgers and having fish/shrimp and veggies sunday night. Its supposed to get into the mid-low 80s next week - my fingers are crossed! Have a happy final summer weekend!
