Foodie recap

I love to cook. And I love to cook for other people. I may not stray too far on my menu, ok people have said I cook way too much salmon, but at least I mix up the recipes some times?

All right, so I probably eat salmon 3-5 nights a week and when I'm not eating salmon I'm eating Mexican. This is Texas. But I should branch out every once in a while. I need some new dishes. Who has suggestions?

Everyone once in a while, we make filets...but that can get expensive so it's usually only on special occasions - like holidays...or if it goes on sale. I've made scallops before, so good, but also expensive.

I also want to stay relatively healthy. It's ok to go off the reservation and eat what I want once in a while, but I should not be doing it as much as I have been lately.

Sooo...here's what I've been eating lately...

Chicken fajitas

I feel like there must be a veggie missing from this plate...

Chicken fajitas take two

Happy Mother's Day - have a blue margarita

Champagne with dinner is always a good idea

Lunch at Tout Suite by my old apt...too expensive

Salmon with homemade arugula pesto, sausage stuffed mushrooms and artichoke pesto on ciabatta

Truffled egg salad from Local Foods...yum

It's been a minute since I made rice bowls...plus leftover pesto

Corn sauteed in garlic butter with feta...yes, please

Salad times two - Quinoa panzanella with salmon & avocado, cucumber salad

  1. I'm dying to try Local Foods specifically for that truffle egg salad...seriously, if you ever want to meet up for a weekday lunch, I'm down! :) That pesto pasta looks amazing, too...

    1. Sounds like a plan...I can't believe you've never been there. Maybe Tues or Weds next week?

New Goals - Lean

So I finally went back for my follow up body fat test last Tuesday. I didn't really know what to expect. I knew I had lost some weight and I could see more muscle definition, but I wasn't sure. I told myself I would be happy with anything under 30% since I was 33.8 the last time I went.

So of course in the lead up to the test I had like 5 cheat meals. Insert eye roll here. Saturday was margaritas and Mexican for dinner. Sunday was brunch and champagne and pizza. And then Monday was more Mexican bc of Sunday. Whoops.

Clearly I had to run Tuesday morning before the test. hahahaha

Then at lunch time I headed over to visit Heather. The got a new machine that's so supposed to be even more accurate than the BodPod and you don't even have to strip down lol.

So my new results were:
Weight - 147.6
Body Fat - 27.8

So I lost 6.3 pounds and 6% body fat. Total time elapsed between tests was 16 weeks.

This places me in the moderately lean category for women.

Moving forward, I think …

Hello Weekend

Finally. Just one more day of work. And then it's the weekend. No sleeping in for me though. Early morning group run and volunteer lunch tomorrow and then course tour on Sunday.
