IN with the new N OUT with the old

After two weeks of a sinus infection and bronchitis, I finally started feeling better this week. YAY! And the weather has been gorgeous so that means I got to walk THE HILL!!!  Mom and I walked it Tuesday and then again today with our neighbor Kathy.

TUESDAY menu:

Breakfast- Nature’s Path flaxseed cereal and toast w/pb

Walked the hill with mom.

Snack- Chobani

Lunch- turkey and muenster cheese toasted on whole grain bread w/avocado slice and carrots

Had a job interview at the Montage Resort in Deer Valley for a concierge position.  It lasted 2 hours!  I’m still debating whether or not I want the job.  It’s only part-time and I was looking for something to keep me busy with Keller is gone and while Cole is in school.  I’ll keep you updated.

Dinner: drove to Provo to see friends before they moved and grabbed some BBQ chicken pizza, salad, and garlic bread from a popular Provo pizza restaurant Brick Oven.

Treat: Keller brought me home one of my favorite treats, a cinnamon scone from Great Harvest Bread…he’s the devil!

WEDNESDAY menu:

Breakfast- Keller requested french toast AND scrambled eggs…I made it with great harvest wheat bread and it was soooo good!  I make my french toast very simple, pam the pan, dip the bread in a scrambled egg, top with lite syrup, it’s delicious and depending on the type of bread you use only 4-5 points.

Cole was at school so Keller and I went to the outlets to shop for some winter clothes for Cole.

Lunch- Cafe Rio shredded chicken salad…so here’s the dealio, I used to LOVE cafe rio like LOVE LOVE and since I’ve been back I’ve been twice and honestly I don’t like it anymore.  If anyone who used to know me when I lived in Utah reads this they will be flabbergasted!  I blame Chipotle.  I think Chipotle changed my taste buds.  The dressing is too mayonnaise-y, the tortilla although still good and I used to find delicious is really thick and most likely not good for you, and I like the rice better at Chipotle.  It’s disappointing!  So I guess I’m a Chipotle convert, sorry Cafe Rio!

Went to see REAL STEEL with Keller and my dad.  Thought it was going to be a stupid movie about fighting robots, but it was actually really good!!  I laughed, cried, and everything in between.  Definitely recommend it, plus Hugh Jackman is hot!

Snack- 5 red vines

Dinner- Cole requested spaghetti for dinner.  Used ground turkey, squash, zucchini, onion, Classico tomato and basil sauce, seasoned with garlic salt, seasoned pepper and bay leaves.  Served over organic wheat pasta, with a side of sourdough garlic toast and fruit.

THURSDAY menu

Breakfast

Another walk up the hill.

Headed down to Salt Lake to pick up my 2 nephews.  Took all 3 boys to get hamburgers, fries, and shakes at In-N-Out.  I was so excited cause it had been awhile since I’ve had it.  I grew up on In-N-Out being from California, so for me it’s a nostalgia thing and I will always enjoy it!

Lunch- hamburger, fries, sips of chocolate shake

The only thing I regretted from eating this for lunch was the fact that I kept burping it up for the next 6 hours.  TMI I know!  It will be awhile before I eat there again because of the way it made me feel, but there will be special occasions.

Stopped by Nordstrom on the way to the park to return something and found the cutest diaper bag…I can’t decide which color?

Dinner- met college friends for dinner, shared some pita and humus and ordered fish tacos.  It was more like a fish burrito, I actually hated it.  The fish was dry and had no flavor.

Dessert- trying to make up for dinner we stopped by Cold Stone and I got a Like It size chocolate w/brownie.

I know I need to do much better at taking pics…I’m trying.  I have 2 more days with Keller and then I promise I’ll be better at my documenting.  The title of the post has multiple meanings…I’m trying really hard not to get into the “I’m pregnant I can eat whatever” mode, but I’m also having a hard time getting back in a routine after 2 months of craziness.
