Since Rich and I are basically vagabonds this summer we have lost a lot of our normal routines. We do not make it to a gym on a regular basis. We have a membership but our gym on Long Island is elite and charges us extra each time we visit.
I guess no one told them I am not engaged to Daddy Warbucks.
We are not cooking our own food because I make huge messes and I want my future Mother in Laws to like me .
We also seem to be eating at a lot of different celebrations:
surprise birthday parties (for Rich’s mom Kathy)
I am not going to lie…we have enjoyed all of the yummy treats we have had like Pam’s ice cream cake, Jake Starrs wraps and lots of pizza! I just feel a little out of control.
Since I cannot really control all of this I am taking control of what I can:
Lately lunch has been whatever we can grab and chips.
Today we started super salads.
Super salads are super simple
the veggies you like,
a lean protein you like
and a little bit of healthy fat.
I call them super because they are big, and fill you up.
If you feel hungry 20 minutes later you prolly did not have enough protein.
3/4 cherry tomatos in halves
3/4 cucumber diced into fourths
1/2 of red pepper diced
1/3 cup brocoli slaw
slice of lean turkey meat
3 artichoke hearts
1/2 cup of spring mix
1/2 an apple (granny smith!)
3 teaspoons fat free balsamic dressing
Rich added mushrooms (ick) to his and left his cucumbers for me.
I have also been rocking an arm work out from Fitness magazine.
I am testing it’s ability for an at home work out since I am too poor for Long Island standards.
