I knew that Day 5 was going to be a day of temptations! We had decided that week to have a girls' night at Luma on Friday, and I am no stranger to Chef Brandon's fabulous dishes! We take clients to Luma very often, and my meal of choice is the Eight Hour Pasta Bolognese. It is incredible. On my birthday I called Tim just to make sure it was going to be on the menu before making a reservation.
So that day I kept it simple. Here is what I had. There are some new items you should definitely try. Kashi tastes a bit like cardboard, fyi.
Meal One: whole wheat toast with 2 tablespoons of all-natural peanut butter
Meal Two: egg whites, peppers and light cheese in a wheat wrap
Meal Three: 8 ounces grilled chicken and veggies
Meal Four: 3/4 cup Honey Toasted Oat KASHI Cereal with 1 cup fat free milk
Meal Five: Luma's hamburger (no bun or ketchup), cheddar cheese and a side of grilled asparagus. (no FRIES)
Meal Six: 1 cup chocolate milk
I didn't work out on Friday! It was my one day off this week. But I had been on such a good streak that I contemplated working out when I got home that night from Luma.
Needless to say I made it through a girls' night without killing my diet! I even stayed away from wine, which is the only type of alcohol I usually drink! We all know Luma has a great wine selection.
Hope you guys are staying healthy. We only have a few weeks until bathing suit season! Try and keep your portions small and your options healthy.
Sue told me I'm not eating enough calories. I didn't think I would hear that from her, well... ever! She said I need to incorporate more healthy carbs with my small meals and more protein. Sounds good to me.
P.S. I'm down about 3 pounds and feeling really good!
