After a food-filled weekend, it was time to get my habits in order. I think because I had not had decadent sweets like that in a while, my taste buds went into over drive and I devoured everything in sight! Ok, not everything. But my cravings were not under control. My will-power was nowhere in sight. I think I had it under control by sunday though.
|Breakfast||Left over Jimmy John’s sandwich||132|
|Rice and eggs||100|
|Snack||Fiber One Chocolate chewy bar||90|
|Lunch||4 Pieces of shrimp sushi||200|
|Dinner||Almond crusted salmon||322|
|Rice & corn||180|
|Dessert||1.5 No-bake coconut cookies||264|
Two of those no-bake cookies were left and I couldn’t let them go to waste. I tried to sneak them without Daniel noticing but he caught me eating the second one so I gave him half of it. I’m greedy when it comes to sweets! Otherwise, it was a better day for sure.
For the crumb mixture, he pulsed almonds in the food processor with a little parmesan, parsley, and lemon zest. Then, he added Panko breadcrumbs to the mix. He coated the salmon in egg, then dipped them in the almond mixture. We thought we could skip the flour step but found that it actually helps the coating stay on better. It worked out in the end though. Then he cooked them on each side for 5 minutes over medium heat.
We are big fish eaters nowadays. There are so many easy recipes out there that are so flavorful and give the fish a little crunch. I love crunch in my meals whether it be crispy coating on fish, almonds in my salads, or crunchy vegetables in my stir fry.
Alright, it’s time for my Weekly Wrap-Up since I forgot to do that yesterday. My bad!
Obviously Saturday’s calories are just a guess. I knew it was going to be a lot from all of those sweets so I just picked a high calorie amount. Other than those two bad days, I did pretty good! I just need to not go to the grocery store hungry and learn to resist having seconds (and thirds) when it comes to desserts. I did do a lot better incorporating more workouts so I hope to keep up with that this week. Oh, and I got down to 129.6 this past week! Finally under 130 again. But I may have gained a pound or two after saturday’s binge…. time to burn off those extra calories!
