I have done so much today… I don’t know how I fit it all in. I had fun doing it though! I feel like I still have a lot to do so I am going to just going to take you guys through a quick summary of the last 24 hours.
E’s and A’s
For lunch I made another egg roll creation (I am trying to use them up!) that I had with carrots, clementines, crackers, trail mix and greek yogurt. I put turkey, mozzarella and strawberry jam on the inside of my egg rolls and it was fantabulous.
For dinner my mom and I helped each other to make a recipe from the sugar free and gluten free cookbook that Mary let me borrow. We made a few adaptions (spaghetti instead of linguini and chicken instead of shrimp) to the spicy tomato linguini recipe. It was so delicious! My mouth was on fire though! I love spice.
After breakfast this morning I got ready to go to church with Josh and Justin. I hadn’t been in probably a little over a year and before that it had been even longer. I feel uneducated when it comes to religion, and perhaps that is why I don’t go to church. I don’t like feeling “lost” when people are talking. It was Justin’s church that we went to and it was actually a pretty good service. I have awful memory so I have already forgotten much of the sermon, but I do know that I left feeling like I gained something from the experience. I think I would go back again. It could be a good way to help me find my identity.
When I got home from going to church with the guys I made my lunch and then got started on some extreme cooking! I made all of the main dishes for my client for the week. I literally worked in the kitchen the entire afternoon. Well, from 2:15 to 5:15. Check out what I made:
I sampled everything (sampling the food I made my client was one of my goals from my session with Mary) and it tasted so good! There were a few additions I would make to a few things if it were for me, but since my client has an array of foods that are on her no list I had to do without adding certain spices and veggies. It all was still very good! My mom seasoned the chicken for dinner using the same seasonings I used for the meatballs. She sampled the meatballs as well and instantly fell in love with them haha.
Once I finished my snack I logged the recipes I made for my client and calculated the nutrition before I set out for my run! I started running at sunset and it was absolutely gorgeous. It was the perfect temperature outside. The sunflower butter sandwich must have been the perfect fuel for me because I put in 5 miles and I felt like I could have kept going! Or maybe running in the dark just boosted my adrenaline. It was a little slow, but hey, there are a lot of hills in my neighborhood.
Now I am just relaxing. I am trying to decide if I want to bake another recipe tonight or if I want to wait till tomorrow. Decisions, decisions…
I hope you had a great weekend! Have a good week 🙂
