Yesterday was my third training session. It wasn’t as hard as last week but it was definitely another good work out. My abs hate my trainer, but this is probably a good thing. He told me I to add more protein to my diet, such as adding an an egg with my normal breakfast cereal/oats, and eating a half of can of tuna for lunch. That seemed boring to me, so I decided to make chicken salad. In my chicken salad I like fruit , nuts, and honey, but I despise mayonnaise. Then it occurred to me that I had a honey Oikos in my fridge….why not use that in place of mayonnaise? Greek yogurt has a good amount of protein, too!
I mixed together the following:
- 1 can of chicken breast meat
- 1/2 of a Gala apple, chopped into little cubes
- 1/2 cup of grapes, sliced in half
- 1/4 cup of walnut pieces
- 1 container of Honey Oikos greek yogurt
- freshly ground pepper
I had it for lunch on Tuesday over a bed of spinach:
I had to go to WF after work, and I was starving. I know that’s a dangerous state to be in while grocery shopping, so I grabbed a Luna Bar to inhale while I picked up my stuff. This was a new flavor for me:
It was really tasty and I loved the hint of peppermint. It was as good as a cookie! I went to my training session at 7:30, then ran back to my house to meet my friend Santo. Santo is a fellow Blackberry user who recently ran over his phone with a golf cart. Nice job. I told him that I had an old Curve he could use in the meantime, and he was nice enough to bring me with Chickfila. This was going to be a special dinner, so I made sure I brought out the candle.
He brought my favorite salad, the Chargrilled Chicken & Fruit Salad, a Diet Lemonade (!!!)…and a lovely gift from his brother, Frankie. Frankie sells wine for a living, and thought it would be really nice to sent Santo over with one of his best wines. Really, it’s a classy bottle. And pardon me for pronouncing it “Reunite”–Santo immediately corrected me saying, “No, no, Christina. It’s ree-u-nee-tay.” My bad.
This fine $5 Italian wine with an alcohol content of 8% will be saved for a very special occasion.
