Rise and Shout the Cougars were out…weekend recap

Busy weekend…

Friday started off with a wonderful hour of yoga.  It has been soooo long way to long since I’ve done yoga and I could tell.  I was so stiff and having troubles doing position that usually aren’t a problem.  My goal this next week is to wake up every day and do at least 10 minutes of yoga every morning.  Cole had school off due to a teacher training weekend so his cousins came up to grammy and papa’s house to play.  We went to the park, got ice cream, and watched Harry Potter.  At night we went out for dinner at one of my favorite Mexican restaurants up in Park City.  They have the best chips and delicious shrimp tacos.  Apparently everyone else in Park City had the same idea cause it was packed.  We had 5 adults and 5 kids trying to find a table in this tiny restaurant.  The kids were tired, it was hot, and it took forever to get our food then Cole was either dehydrated or just exhausted or a mixture of both, but almost barfed all over the place.  I had to cut in front of this little girl waiting for the bathroom so that he didn’t barf all over the restaurant.  So we went home and got him to bed, with a little 7up and some toast he was feeling much better.

Food for FRIDAY:

My sister brought the ingredients for us to try a Persian snack that friends of hers introduced her to.  It’s Persian bread with feta cheese, walnuts, and prunes.  I have to be honest, at first it didn’t sound so good, but it was actually delicious!

After the park, we took the kids to get an ice cream.

Dinner: shrimp tacos from El Chubasco

SATURDAY…spent most of the day at the BYU/Idaho State football game.  Tried to not go crazy on food today.  Started with a bowl of my favorite Nature’s Path flaxseed cereal.

Snack/Lunch: The fam decided to stop at Wendy’s before getting on the road to go to the game.  Luckily I brought an apple and a Balance Bar, cause I knew I wanted to save my calories for a treat at the game.

My phone did not work at all in the stadium so I didn’t get a pic of my treats…my favorite thing to get at BYU games is called a cougar tail, it’s basically a big A maple bar…I also needed some substance so I grabbed a chicken salad from Costa Vida (similar to Cafe Rio) tortilla, rice, chicken, lettuce, pico, dressing.  They were both soooo yummy!  And Cole had a great time at his first football game!

I’m not sure what my deal was, but I did not feel good at all on the way home.  I think it was a combination of nausea just from being in a car and having all that food in my stomach.  So I went straight to the treadmill when we got home.  Ran my intervals 45 min run 2min/walk 1.  Felt sooo much better after that!

Dinner: Chobani greek yogurt w/fruit

SUNDAY…I literally did nothing today, scratch that, I took my parents to the airport and then I did nothing.  Made some eggs w/turkey and toast for breakfast.  Cole wanted soup for lunch so we had some more of the Trader Joe’s butternut squash soup with  a muenster grilled cheese sandwich and some grapes.

We watched some movies and then took naps.  Snacked on some Twizzlers pull-n-peel, dang you Sherilynn, apple, and some tortilla chips.

Sherilynn was so nice and made dinner.  She made pasta w/fresh tomato and basil sauce and a delicious salad.  I’m being spoiled by people cooking for me!!

Been craving these since I got here.  So I decided to make them and get them out of my system.  Started with one, but by the time the night was over I’m pretty sure I had 4!

Had a moment of weakness, should have gone upstairs to made a healthy snack, instead I found whatever candy I could get my hands on and ate them.  Did not feel awesome after this binge!

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.
