This week I had chia seed pudding every morning. I mix 3/4 cup almond milk with 3 tablespoons chia seeds, a splash of vanilla extract, and cinnamon, and let it sit overnight. I either topped it with raspberries or bananas in the morning. I really like this, and can see it become a major part of my morning routine once residency starts since it's basically ready to go in the morning. For lunches this week I either had left overs from dinner, we went out to eat in between looking at houses so I had a large chicken salad, and I got a burrito bowl from Chipotle yesterday (I get it without rice or cheese, and just a tiny bit of sour cream - even then, just the veggies, beans, steak, salsa, and guac still add up in calories!). One of my favorite snacks this week was the no sugar added bread and butter pickles - I love that crunch, and that they are 0 calories. For dinners I made chicken with brussel sprouts, and that chicken meatballs in red curry sauce above (this was SO GOOD and I can't wait to make it again. I got very lazy and used store bought chicken meatballs and cauliflower rice, but that's what I like about it - the minimal work!)
Last week's goals:
- Take 2 group weight classes with stair masters beforehand: done!
- Use My Fitness Pal every day: this didn't happen. I did it some days and just forgot others. Making this a goal again this week!
- Try out a new recipe that we haven't tried yet: done! the chicken meatball curry sauce was amazing
This week's goal:
- Track all meals in my fitness pal
- Stretch at least 10 minutes a day
- Drink at least 3 bottles of water a day
Last night our friends Ben and Amy had us over for dinner - we had an amazing meal of chicken, pasta, asparagus, and finished with peach cobbler. It was amazing!
weigh in: - 0.8 lbs from last week, totaling 9.2 lbs over all. I think next week I'll finally hit 10 lbs down!
