I hate it.
When Andrew was at OCS, I don't really know what I ate. There were some frozen dinners. And some sandwiches. But there were also some spoonfuls of peanut butter and some rootbeer floats and some take out. There was a lot of take out.
There are a lot of reasons why I wanted to do things differently this time and Andrew made me promise to take better care of myself, so I've been trying super super hard to make healthy dinners a priority. He's been gone for 11 days, so let's see where I've netted out, shall we?
Day 1: Leftover Mellow Mushroom.
Day 2: A salad with avocado, mandarin oranges and almonds with a baked potato.
Day 3: Homegroup! A pasta dish with sausage, caprese salad and garlic bread
Day 4: Sauteed scallops with whole wheat pasta and avocado
Day 5: Leftovers.
Day 6: Panera, just to get out of the house. Smoked turkey panini with chicken noodle soup.
Day 7: Friday Night Page Night (Formerly known as Friday Night Date Night)! I woke up from a nap craving chinese, so I went for a mongolian grill where you pick all of the fresh ingredients and they cook it up in front of you. YUM.
Day 8: Don't judge me, but I had a cheeseburger from Sonic. I can't even begin to tell you how happy it made me.
Day 9: Southwest salad with avocado, black beans, corn and tortilla chips and a sweet potato.
Day 10: Homegroup! Lasagna with salad and bread. And some ice cream.
Day 11: Grits and some leftover salad.
Minus the whole cheeseburger thing and the fact that I've eaten out three times, I'm doing okay. Right? I mean, there's room for improvement but it's not a rootbeer float. And I'll be the first to tell you that weekends are my weakness - it's so tempting to just eat out. But I'm working on it!
Tell me, folks. What are some things that a single-for-now gal can eat without a lot of fuss?
(PS: Can you believe I just remembered all of my dinners for the last week and a half? I'm a machine.)
