Not so blue Monday

by Joanne on October 13, 2008

Although it’s tough to get up after a few days vacation, I managed to open my eyes before the 4AM alarm and lay in wait of the ominous chime telling me to get out of bed. If I don’t get up when the alarm goes off, Ted pushes me out so I may as well rise.9567

Once up and in the gym, the work out proved pretty good:10532

45 min. run + 35 min. weight w/out + 28 min. walk.  The run was broken into 2 parts as one mile was spent running w/ Shane. The weight w/o included back, triceps, abs, yoga stretching to finish.

It was so good to be back eating what I’m used to: cream of rice w/ raisins, apple pie spice and a tsp of natural peanut butter. A protein shake with 2 oz of fresh blueberries and 1/2 a grapefruit. My tummy is smiling.

Just worked through the morning at a steady pace with typical “to-do” work. Didn’t get home for lunch because Sue had to meet up with Sam so I made the best of my trip to the store and bought:

Baby spinach, tomato, red bell pepper, tuna in a pouch, bean salad, f/f poppy seed dressing.   It was a pretty big salad and worked out to be approximately 360 cal.; 30 protein; 50 carbs; 4g fat.  Since I keep the fat low in my diet, I supplement with EFA’s (essential fatty acids) in the morning. 

A healthy lunch

I also bought a green cabbage as I am going to turn a “Chicken Enchilada” recipe into “Tuna Enchiladas” however instead of using tortillas, I am going to wrap the stuffing in big cabbage leaves…. and Ted thought he was going to have pork chops tonight!

Dinner came out really good and I call it: Gluten Free Tuna Enchiladas:

In the meantime, our neighbors are heading back to Florida on Wed. (Snow Birds) and brought over some very nice flowers:

I also checked the progress on the wall.  Ted had to make a phone call because they were building the wall so high.  It would have hidden the new door and the new stampcrete!  They were able to take out a layer or two.  Almost complete, they just have to glue on the tops and clean up. 

The wall still in progress

Now for the enchilada details:  approximate:  210 cals. 7 g fat; 4 sat. fat; 32 cholesterol; 17 carbs, 4 fiber and 21 g protein per enchilada.  This does not include the F/F Refried Beans.
Check out the recipe page for the full instructions.
Now I am going for a walk with Shane who is sleeping… sulking right now. He got in trouble for not doing as he was told.
