Well, I certainly like that better than 163. That is just 1.1 pounds away from the 150s. I can do this. It may be slow, and you may want to bash my head in because I use “161.0” as a post title for the next three weeks, but I will get there.
I’m not in any great rush, other than the “I’m impatient!” kind. Which, as you know, exists.
Anyway, I have a grand total of one food photo today! Sorry, guys.
Breakfast was cereal. Duh.
For lunch, we celebrated Tim’s birthday with his co-workers at Blanc Burgers!
And I didn’t take a picture, lest they think I’m weird. They all know me as “the girl who bakes compulsively and sends it to work with Tim every Monday,” which I think puts me on the oddball scale already.
But man. Turkey burgers aren’t something I do, really. When you lose weight, people tend to say, “Substitute ground turkey for beef!” and I did that, the first time around.
Until Tim and I realized that turkey burgers are dry and flavorless, and yes, we can tell a difference in ground turkey in our pasta sauce/tacos/etc. And we didn’t like it.
So, we added ground beef >ground turkey to the list of Things We Won’t Compromise On Even Though They Are Healthy.
Anyway. Sometimes when I order off menus, I kind of panic. I actually WANTED a black bean burger for something interesting yet healthy, but they didn’t have one. They offered a lentil burger done up with Indian spices, which aren’t my favorite.
So, when the waiter came to take our order, I blurted out, “TURKEY BURGER” and got a side salad instead of fries.
And man, it was good. It was soft and juicy and not dry at all, and the bun was perfectly cooked. And the side salad was fantastic as well. I poached a few of Tim’s fries, which had a good flavor, but were a bit thin for my liking…I like mine a little thicker. (That’s what she said!) I left feeling perfectly satiated but not heavy.
I’m definitely going back to Blanc Burgers soon! Yum!
After work, I went to the gym and did Susan’s new Upper Body Workout “for heavyweights.” Though…I prefer not to call myself a heavyweight. Maybe just badass. Either way, it must have worked, because I had trouble washing my face in the shower afterwards.
I did it to the letter and tacked on 15 minutes on the spin bike at the end for funsies.
Dinner was leftovers from Sunday. We had garlic bread made with sandwich rolls instead of rice because we were out.
Obviously, the lunch calories here are a total guess. Also, I skipped my afternoon snack because I was still full from my fabulous lunch:
In other news…Tim received some promising news on the job front today! It’s so nice to finally have some good news. So, please cross your fingers/legs/send good vibrations/pray/meditate/throw Secret-style affirmations into the air in our general direction until you see a post from me titled “!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”. Thanks.
