[This was an update from over a week ago, but I forgot to publish!]
The moral of this week(and pretty much every week up until this point) is that I'm hanging in there :)
Food highlights of the week:
1) J's Summer Salad at The J's in Hamra: I ordered the summer salad which had watermelon, melon, feta, and some greens after a long day at the beach. My friend and I did end up ordering fries to share, but I'd like to report that I didn't really have THAT many fries :P
2) Healthy Nachos (pictured above with the Caribou coffee and laptop-bottom right corner): For dinner, I usually have a labne, cheese, or turkey sandwich with veg. On this particular day, I didn't really feel like it so I decided to give things a twist. I cut up my oat bread into triangles, drizzled olive oil on top, and added some spices then placed it in the pan until it got crispy (easily done in the oven, but I'm a pan girl). Then I used the labne as a dip, and it was delicious! I should have also cut up cucumbers, but we were out...
3) Pizza party cheat meal from Tomatomatic: I'm allowed to have two cheat MEALS a week, which is very generous for "diets". Pizza is bae. I can have pizza all day errryday, and I hadn't had pizza (real pizza) in over 4 weeks. Tomatomatic is one of my favorite places to order from. I love their mushroom and swiss pizza, as well as the garlic chicken pizza and the taco pizza. YUM!
Goals for this week:
-Plank for 30 seconds without wanting to kill myself.
-Continue going to the gym 2/3 times a week.
-Read more about the subject of mindfulness.
