Hope everyone had a great 4th!
Mirza , Amra, and I ended up at downtown Gulfport for a change. And I must say, the fireworks were amazing! Honestly, I was surprised because you'd think that Gulfport wouldn't be better than St. Pete, but they were.
Here is a quick video from when they started. I have no sound on my computer, so I have no idea if I am talking or what is going on, haha
Yesterday's work out was Extreme Training and my back is sooo sore now. Geez. Today we went for a quick swim and I think I am finished for the night. Too sore!
Work tomorrow, so I planned out my meals for a week.
My meals are incredibly dependent upon my work schedule since I am there for 13 hours. Lunch is usually left overs from the night before and dinner is usually whatever I can find or something quick to put together, especially if I am working the next day since I need to get ready for bed pretty quickly.
I find that I spend a lot less money on food if I make a plan and stick to it.If I am not careful then I can easily spend $500+ on food for one month...and I live alone! Granted, I feed Mirza most of the time, but that is still a lot, haha!
The plan for this week:
Wednesday (today): Meditteranean pizza with 1/2 baked sweet potato and carrot-dill salad
Thursday (work day): Lunch--left overs. Dinner--Big salad with hemp seeds, the works.
Friday: Chili rubbed tilapia with zucchini, sauteed corn with carrot salad.
Saturday (work day): Lunch--left over tilapia. Dinner--quick pasta
Sunday (work day): Lunch--left over pasta. Dinner- Mediterranean pizza
Monday: Big salad for lunch. Dinner is whole wheat blueberry pancakes, hence the salad at lunch;)
Tuesday: Grilled marinated chicken (george foreman grill, woo), broccoli, red potatoes, etc.
Keeping in mind that this is definitely not everything I will be eating AT ALL. Every morning I have oatmeal with peanut butter toast and when I am home I graze and nibble on things throughout the day. At work, I eat before hand, then take a 15 minute "breakfast" of yogurt, banana, whatever. And I have lunch later on, and then a snack before I go home.
I made my list once again and stuck to it (yes, I spelled broccoli wrong):
This was after shopping, hence the highlighting! I opted not to buy coconut milk ice cream since I knew this afternoon I would be making Jenna's Blueberry muffins
Grand total: $77.15!
I stayed under my budget, so woohooo.
Like I said, I baked blueberry muffins today! They were oozing with blueberry goodness!! Thanks to Jenna for the recipe!!!
I've started taking pictures outside on my drier because of the lighting, hahaha!
