Dinner · Lunch · Workout


I slept really well again last night and I woke up at 8:30 this morning. I enjoyed some coffee and a bagel thin with one tablespoon of peanut butter and a tablespoon of jam.  I was still hungry after breakfast.

After spending the morning reading and watching MSNBC, I went to the gym. I biked five miles (and read my book) burning 200 calories. Then I did weight and ab work on the mats, fun times! After the strength and toning I ran 1.25 miles just to remind my body what it is like to run. I refused to run this weekend in this disgusting humidity and high temperatures.  It would be like torture. All summer long I would run in the hottest temperatures. It was nothing compared to this disgusting humidity. I cannot stand it.

After the gym I stopped by East Side Market. At least it is autumn somewhere! They had cider and candy corn in the produce section. I had a small cup of cider, but skipped the candy corn but they looked really good 🙂

I bought a few things for lunches and dinner tonight while at the market. Once I got home my mom and our friends were already at our house. I quickly looked at the football game (not to be mentioned again, FYI) and quickly put the food away and ran upstairs to take a quick shower and change.

Once I was back downstairs I made myself a turkey sandwich. I had been craving a turkey sandwich for days. So weird, right? Sometimes I get the strangest cravings. This sandwich was amazing.





The sandwich had spinach, red onion, tomato, and melted Swiss (reduced fat) cheese along with Dijon mustard on it. The turkey was a reduced sodium Boar’s Head. So. Good.

During the sporting event I made nachos for our viewing party and other folks snacked on cheese, crackers, olives and vegetables.

Eventually I got to working on the salad that would accompany dinner. It was quite a pretty thing – I’m sad that I forgot to snap a photo of it.

Dinner was steak, that AFM was kind enough to season with his homemade dry rub last weekend – we put them in the freezer until this morning.  Everyone at dinner commented multiple times on how amazing the steak seasoning was. I definitely wished that AFM had been around to have dinner with us, too.

Here is what my plate looked like:

A small piece of steak, half of a baked potato with reduced fat sour cream and freshly cut chives and a big serving of salad. It was a great dinner.  I sort of feel like I’ve consumed a lot of food today.

Anyhow. Today I finished one book An Object of Beauty by Steve Martin which I really liked. I had a lot of options on my next book – but I decided to start The Leftovers by Tom Perrotta. I bought the book for AFM’s birthday a couple of weeks ago. He finished it a day or two after I gave it to him, and now I have to read it so that we can go out to breakfast or coffee and talk about the book.

Well, I am going to sign off and get back to my book. I hope you all had a great weekend. See you tomorrow!

  1. Yes. I do agree. I love dry rub and I think it adds a lot more essence (oh wow, I can’t believe we used the same word to describe this…) than a simple sauce. But I’m not an expert on BBQ like you are.

  2. Glad you had a good weekend! The food all sounds delicious! The turkey sandwich made me realize that it’s been a long time since I’ve had one. It looked yummy!

  3. Marilyn: I had not realized how long it had been since I had a turkey sandwich. I thought it was such a weird craving – but they are so good. I have another 1/2 of a sandwich for lunch today!
