Took is easy today after a whole weekend of eating (and slept until 8:00!!!). Went to the grocery store, played online, did some cleaning. I went for another 5-mile run at 4:30. My legs were really stiff and sore by the end (not sure if it was the colder weather or the fact that I never allow myself to run two days in a row). For dinner, the husband and his mom cooked me a delicious meal – but it had to be under 400 calories! I splurged on the wine and half a cookie, but I’m still under net. It was a fun day!!
Had yummy oatmeal with apple and almonds for breakfast. And lots of water!

I picked up some chicken breasts at the grocery store and husband cooked one for lunch. Had it on a bun (I had to get the kind with HFCS because I went to Harris Teeter instead of Earth Fare – ugh!). Had a slice of havarti and lettuce on the chicken.
Got some of these tiny sweet peppers and had them with 2 tbsp of Wild Garden Bean Dip (which is only 35 calories for 2 tbsp!!)
I also got some radishes to try, as I’ve never really had them. I didn’t really care for them raw (they were too much like onions) but I LOVED them cooked – just like potatoes! We sauteed them for a minute in a skillet.
I couldn’t stop the Kashi cracker craving….I had 10
All together for 480 calories:
We have our Halloween candy in stock – and the husband and I split one after lunch!! 45 calories that were SO not worth it!
I made cranberry sauce again and had a little of that and had 2 more Kashi crackers and a bite of apple. I also cooked some Swiss Oatmeal (steel cut oats made with dried fruit, nuts, milk and yogurt – you’ll see tomorrow) and had some tastes of that. Probably about 50 calories worth of licks?
Husband cooked me a fabulous dinner with the assistance of his mother and her boyfriend. We had a lovely Sunday night dinner, complete with wine! Husband sure is a fabulous cook!!
“Paella” of lobster tail and pan-seared scallops with sun-dried tomatoes, jalapeños, roma tomatoes and sweet peppers, served over risotto, topped with capers.
After dinner I split a frozen oatmeal cookie with the husband. Delicious, but worth 100 calories? Maybe not…
