Daily Eats – Day 13

Yup, I missed yesterday. Not on purpose, I took photos of everything, but then I went to bed and totally spaced it. Oh well. Today I got to work from home. Starting in February I get to take all Fridays off to work on Tied Bow stuff! This is pretty much amazing. So in an effort to be as productive as I would on a regular work day, I dragged my butt out of bed at 8:30, took a shower, got dressed and put on my face.

Freakishly flattering photo. Don't be fooled.

Had Non Fat Greek Yogurt, Frozen Berries, and Low Fat Granola for Breakfast. Plus a 16 oz Non Fat Vanilla Latte (no photo).

I worked until 1:30 and then met Mr. Gaunt at the gym.

Supposedly crossing your legs makes you look thinner in photos. I'm not convinced.

After the gym I worked more, until 5:30pm when my mom came over and we went to Costco and Old Navy. I was on the hunt for the perfect Black, Non-Shiny, Capri Length, Flared workout pants. None could be found. Old Navy is currently having a sale on workout gear, but its all skin tight spandex nastyness. They did have some nice clearance shirts that I bought.

Home Made Banana Chips.

Turkey and mustard.

My go-to winter outfit.

Then for dinner we had Goji Asian Fusian.

Followed by a glass of Pear Cider and in bed by 1 am…lol. Let the weekend begin.

Oh and a reminder to myself and anyone else being forced to watch football this weekend. DONT EAT CHIPS. DONT EAT DIP. DONT EAT HOT WINGS. DONT EAT CARBS. DONT EAT SWEETS. DONT GRAZE. DONT FORGET TO FOCUS ON THE PRIZE.

Weigh in on Sunday! Who feels good about this week?

Chicken Parmesan

I made Chicken Parmesan a few nights ago and it was DELISH! It took a smidge longer than expected because the oven temp wasnt set (ehm…mr.gaunt) none the less we finally ate at 8:00pm (boo that is way past six!). It’s also super easy. I baked breaded chicken (I have made my own bread crumbs, but these were store-bought) and then sprinkled parmesan on it about 3 minutes before it came out of the oven. I boiled some whole wheat angel hair and sauteed some onions, zucchini and cherry tomatoes in olive oil. I mixed the veggies into the pasta and put the chicken on top of it, poured over some spaghetti sauce and sprinkled with a little more cheese. Super yummy and pretty healthy. We are on a major veggie kick, and I can not get enough!

I’m going to Washington in SEVEN days! YAY! Its my mom’s birthday next Friday and I’m so glad I get to spend it with her! I havent seen her since July (which is a damn crime against mother/daughter bonding!) and we are gonna do Deep Water Running, and I want to cook with her! I really want to try to make Kale Chips while there (yah down mom?) because we both love a good chip, and I LOVE KALE! Anyway, tomorrow is Ms. G’s Birthday and we will be going to Fresh Fish for dinner. I’ve already decided I’m getting clams…becuase clams are heaven in a shell. Oh and its Friends and Family Weekend at Old Navy, and a friend sent me the 30% off coupon (total purchase) and 5% goes to Boys and Girls club! How sweet is that! CLICK HERE FOR THE COUPON!
