Default Daily Menus - Week of 4/23

Ahh, bright and early on a new week...don't we all just LOVE Monday mornings?

I have been on a mini vacation the past few days--spent Wednesday night through Friday night at my sister's in Va Beach, then had a birthday celebration for my fiance and his cousin at Dave and Buster's on Saturday, then has a PartyLite party to attend yesterday, plus our air conditioning broke, and even with 3 fans going, it was freakishly hot in our apartment, so we extended Jeff's birthday celebration to the Cheesecake Factory for dinner last night. So now, back down to business...

As I sit here trying to keep my eyes propped open, I'm thinking here's my plan for the day:
  • pbj sandwich (natural peanut butter, strawberry spread, and whole-grain sugar-free bread)
  • glass of skim milk
  • orange and/or tangerine (someone at work gave me a tangerine on Wednesday--I'll have it if it's still good)
  • Cheesecake Factory leftovers
  • turkey burgers w/bacon and Swiss on wheat buns
  • 100-calorie ice cream bar
Right now, all I want to do is go back to bed, but I will try to at least get in a quick walk at lunchtime or something. I need to get my butt up and moving again.

Glory - have to tell you I made that leek/chickpea/spinach soup on Sat and it was soooo good! I used fresh spinach, and while I put in a leek, I think an onion would do just as well. We had it for dinner Sat night, and I had it for lunch today, and will for a couple other days this week. I let it cook for several hours so it's almost stew thickness. Oh ya, had a few left over green beans, so they went in too.

B: oatmeal w/1% milk, .5 oz raisins, 1 oz walnuts, ww toast
S: scone - whoops....
L: Glory's soup, 1/2 turkey wrap (ww tortilla), small apple
S: Cottage cheese w/raspberries
D: salmon patty, brown rice, veggie

Breakfast~ 2 ww sourdough pancakes (leftover from weekend), 1T maple syrup (maybe not so good, but yummy), 1/2 cup low-fat plain yogurt, & 1 sm mandarin orange
Lunch~ 2 black bean enchiladas (made with ww tortillas and homemade sauce)
Snack~ Dark chocolate (TOM coming...)
Dinner~ The plan is lentil-barley stew, but I'm so tired today so I'm not sure (it takes 90 mins to make)

I'm looking at this thinking, "wow I'm eating bad today." Yikes! I'll make sure I do better tomorrow.

Well, we ended up hitting Dairy Queen last night, but other than that, it was a good day for me. Today's plan:
  • pbj sandwich
  • glass of skim milk
  • oatmeal
  • burrito bowl
  • chicken breast tenderloins in honey dijon marinade w/bacon and Swiss cheese, served over rice (or maybe on wheat buns as sandwiches...we shall see)
  • brownies (I baked a pan of brownies for the office and have been pretty good so far--only had 2. I made sure to put them FAR from my desk since last time I kept a treat at my desk for everyone, I ended up eating half, if not more )
