On Day 5 (Saturday) it was my hubby’s birthday! I managed to actually think up a few presents to get him this year, usually it’s hard enough to think of things to get him for Christmas let alone turn around a week later and get something more! I had also decided to take him out on a proper date so I got us a groupon deal (cheeap! woo!) to some greek restaurant and then got us tickets to go see the Hobbit!
The restaurant was fantastic! We started off some some grape leaves stuffed with lamb meat, moved on to a deliciously simple greek salad, we also managed to splurge on some crazy awesome humus (we scooped it up with cucumbers, yum!) You can imagine by the time our main course came we were nearly done. So we ate a little and packed up the rest to have as a midnight snack when we got home. Hubby got some sort of eggplant meal, and I got this wonderful pepper stuffed with sirloin and lamb meat, vegetables and some rice. Yes the rice was a bit more than I would normally eat, but it was also a special occasion so I wasn’t bothered.
On day 6 (Sunday) I had so much grocery shopping to get done but woke up with seriously no energy at all. I suppose staying up until 1am and eating a bit more than normal will still take a toll on you. But of course I thought to myself
well I’m going to feel this anyways I should have just had cake and alcohol. *sigh* I know it does no good to think that way so I had to remind myself why I’m doing this. Not just to feel better, or to lose weight, but to realize I need to rely on God an not on food.
I got some lunch while at Whole Foods. Their food bar is seriously one of my favorite places to eat because they have the ingredients list on EVERYTHING! Which means no second guessing, and no looking the other way and pretending I don’t taste all that sugar in whatever I’m eating.
They didn’t have too much I wanted or could have that day so I just went with a salad filled to the max. Lettuce, eggs, radish, carrots, turkey, green onions, feta cheese and then topped it all off with a balsamic vinegar/olive oil mix. That together with my kombucha on tap (seriously why can’t everywhere in the world have kombucha on tap) made for a great lunch.
For dinner that night I just roasted a chicken with some veg and had that to round off the weekend. I intend to use the chicken and broth to make some soup and a chicken salad for the week to come.
