Changing It Up...

I am in a food rut. Oatmeal, banana and tea for breakfast, turkey sandwich or white bean chili for lunch, and something breakfast-y for dinner, cream of wheat, eggs, etc...

Now, I know that I'm not getting a heck of a lot of fruits and vegetables. And I'm also a little bored with my thrifty, post-grad cuisine ;) So, this week I am challenging myself to switch things up. Maybe that will help me lose some more on the scale. Who knows?

So far my menu today has consisted of the following:

B: Fiber 1 Bar and tea (1 point)

L: Peanut butter and honey sandwich on reduced calorie white bread, carrots, and baked chips (10 points)

D: I'm tentatively thinking about making a stir fry (with chicken, green pepper, and mushrooms) and rice/ a tortilla on the side.

I have so much to do after work today. (1) I have to go to my apartment and pick up my paycheck, (2) I have to go to the bank, (3) I have to go to the gym, (4) I need to stop by the grocery store, (5) I need to straighten my apartment. I may have plans with my friend Adriane and her boyfriend tonight. Anyway, I hope that everyone has a great weekend. I'm planning on taking another Body Pump class tonight (if I can get to the gym early enough). If not, I'll have to make do with the treadmill/ elliptical. Happy Friday!


  1. Changing up your diet is super important in my opinion so you don't get bored! But I would die of hunger if I just had a Fiber 1 bar and tea for breakfast!! What about adding an orange or apple or some fruit?

  2. Beth, I almost died of hunger today, too. Yeah, that menu wasn't meant to be the menu for the whole week. I'll definitely be eating bigger breakfasts than that.
