Man, I am in a real BLIZZARD here!!
Yikes – dinner was good! Well, dinner was OK, but dessert was REALLY good!! I am somewhat of a dessert connoisseur and make a quick judgment of whether something is “worth it” or not. This dessert was worth it! More later…
First off, I apologize for the horrible photos. I was at a nice function and had to make do with a quick photo from a camera in my lap. So the photos are blurry and poor quality!
Arrived at the airport around 4:15 and had half a Kashi Cinnamon Coffee Cake bar. I wasn’t particularly impressed but it did the job of tiding hunger. Sorry, no photo – I was in a shuttle!
Had three plates of raw veggies and a club soda. I could have started in on the wine, but I figured I wouldn’t miss it much if I had something to drink in my hand. I was right! I had THREE plates of raw veggies, but they were yummy!
When I sat down they poured a tiny glass of red wine. I had about 2 oz more than this, probably about 5 oz total? I’m kind of tipsy and am not really sure why, as this wasn’t that much wine!
The rolls were those good take-and-bake kind. I had about 1/3 of one. Yum! Then I asked her to take the plate away.
Salad was just mixed greens with balsamic dressing, cuc, and tomato. I ate most of this but left the pieces with the most dressing.
I ordered the salmon, which was quite good. It came with a red pepper-cheese sauce on the side, which I had about 1/3 a tbsp of. The veggies were drenched in butter, but were good enough. It also came with smashed potatoes (kind of hidden) but only a very small portion, so I ate them and they were good. I ate 3/4 of the salmon, purposefully leaving some on my plate.
Oh my gosh….Apple Tart a la Mode
Like I said, this fell into the “yes, it’s worth it” category. I usually am not tempted by tarts. I would never buy one in a store – they’re not that appealing to me. But this thing was GOOD. It was caramelized and of course the ice cream on the top was delicious. I logged it at 400 calories based on Cosi’s tart. But know knows!?
Also had a cup of decaf coffee.
Total dinner calories? Around 1000. As always, it could’ve been a lot worse!!
Only exercise today was walking around the airport, which I actually did a lot of, especially with my heavy bags. Who knows on the calorie burn, but I’m not really counting today.
Total Monday calories: ~2050.
I’ve got plans to hit the hotel gym in the morning (it’s 9:10 and I should be able to easily get up early). I found out through strategically placed questions that breakfast is pastries and bagels – not exactly the best whole grain way to start the day. I’m not sure if I’m better off making my oatmeal and banana here or at the office. I brought a bowl, but I have no coffee maker for hot water. But if I wait until I’m at the office, I might not have time. I might just call room service for some hot water? Not sure yet! Lunch is sandwiches and a fruit tray; dinner is at the Washington airport – or tuna in a packet and nuts in an emergency!
See you all tomorrow!
