Did anyone realize today is 07-08-09? I have a thing with number patterns and when dates line up like that it makes me smile 🙂
I was trying to think of a cute way to make this a number themed post, but none of my segways are working so let’s just get to food this morning.
I will tell you that I had 15 Trader Joe Peanut Butter Pretzels for my mid-morning snack.
I just could not find a way to bring 15 into the 07/08/09 combination. Maybe I should have gone with “if you add 07 + 08 then you get 15 which is…..”
Yeah I thought that was too far of a stretch too. 😉
I will spare you the corny number number theme I had going with my lunch. Let’s just say there were none. 😉
It was a good lunch though! I wanted vegetables and that’s what I went with.
- 1/2 Zucchini
- 1/2 Yellow Squash
- 1/2 small Tomato
I tossed the veggies with a light coating of EVOO, Balsamic Vinegar & S&P then topped them with a mix of Hummus and BBQ Sauce.
It was mighty tasty!
For some crunch I had a few Blue Corn Tortilla Chips on the side.
I wanted to Thank everyone for their wonderful comments on my Bikini Confidence post. It sounds like there are a lot of ladies out there who want to spread that confidence as well! Don’t forget to wear your bikinis with pride!
I also wanted to share Nancy’s comment she left on my my cruise posts as I felt it was a great question
do you think that you did the best job of staying "healthy" and keeping your portions (relatively) normal-sized on the cruise? OR do you think that it was easy to over-indulge? i’m going on a cruise soon and i dont want to end up with such mammoth portions, it must have been really hard, but you at least tried!
First of all I have discovered it’s IMPOSSIBLE to eat healthy all the time especially on cruises and vacation. I am a big believer in indulging in moderation and while the cruise was a struggle, looking back I feel very happy with my choices.
Trust me it is VERY easy to over indulge on a cruise ship with unlimited amounts of food and alcohol surrounding you. I think the key was staying away from the buffets as much as possible and not abiding by the mantra “But, I’m on vacation”
Since I stuck to the sit down options for breakfast and dinner I was able to control portion sizes. All the items I ordered were reasonably portioned compared to the buffets where I would have just kept piling it on. I’ll admit I did have two starters on two occasions, but they were light and worth it.
I also kept alcohol to a minimum. Not only is it pricey, but not worth it. I would much rather indulge on a great dessert then a sugary drink. I tried to keep it to one glass of wine a night. The one time I did order a fun drink on the beach, it was too much and I ended up chucking half.
What have been your experiences with eating on cruises? Do you have any advice for Nancy?
Did you miss out on your chance for a ticket to this year’s Healthy Living Summit? Well I am happy to report that you have another chance to be one of the lucky attendees and do a little good in the process.
