How’s your Wednesday going? At least we’re at the half-way point for the week, right? We’ve been fighting a cold for the better part of a week or 2 weeks, really, so I’m hoping that we can shake it soon. Seriously, these Spring colds mixed with Spring-time allergies make for a few really miserable weeks!
Anyway, back to today! I’m linking up with Jenn and the WIAW gang to share all of my eats from Monday, a day that was fairly light on the exercise front, but heavy on good food! I know I told you all a few weeks ago that I was working on some diet tweaks to help me lose a few pounds. Well, I’ve been tracking for about a month now and just seeing the foods that I’m eating written down- macros included- has helped me to make some better decisions that do not involve deprivation. I guess you could say that I’ve been following an iifym approach, but really I’ve just been focusing on eating protein with every meal and snack. It’s really made all the difference and I’m already down a few pounds!
So, on to the food!
After breakfast, we clean things up, read a few books and then headed to the gym. I was anxious to get back after taking a few days off due to the Easter holiday. I did a little
reading elliptical session, before hitting up a BODYFLOW class. After our gym time, Matilda and I ran a few errands before coming home to lunch.
Hugh Jass salad of romaine, shredded cabbage, canned beets, and hard boiled eggs. Topped with mustard!
After Matilda went down, my sweet tooth started up, so I dug into the Easter candy for a little treat.
Cadbury Creme eggs are my FAVORITE!!!!
I was really looking to dinner though. Blaze Pizza contacted me last week and invited me the grand opening of one their new locations here in Knoxville. John, Matilda, and I were more than happy to attend!
I loved all of their fresh ingredients. And I thought it was so cool to have caramelized onions and roasted garlic available. Their pizza are fast fired (only 180 seconds!) and come out perfectly crispy.
John went with the barbeque chicken pizza and I had a Create Your Own with ricotta, spinach, caramelized onions, roasted garlic, and artichoke hearts.
Matilda was obviously a fan!
