A New Week Ahead

Posted by Susan on October 11, 2009

Today was the last official day of my week off. It was fun and relaxing, but all good things come to an end , and I must admit I am ready to get back into the swing of things. We slept in this morning. I was in the mood for a good hot breakfast, since it was pretty cold outside. I decided to make a omelette.

I made it with 2 eggs, 2 wedges of Laughing Cow Swiss Cheese and 2 T. of water.

I cooked it on medium heat , until the bottom was pretty much cooked.

Then I cut up the cheese wedges and added them to one side of the eggs.

And then my secret to the perfect omelette every time ………. I put the whole pan under the broiler. It not only melts the cheese , but also makes the eggs nice and fluffy , and easier to fold.

And there we have it ! Perfection !

I had my yummy omelette , with a cinnamon raisin whole wheat English muffin, and a banana . Excellent Sunday breakfast choice !

The remainder of my Sunday morning went pretty much like this ……………. No workout today, I am taking a Rest Day because I am sore from yesterday !

Lunch looked like this …….. Chobani   Strawberry Yogurt with a 1/2 c. of Go Lean Crunch and some almonds.

In the afternoon we decided to take a ride to Borders to poke around for a while .

We made a stop for something  at the grocery store and look what I found ! I love Raisinets , and now they have them in dark chocolate !

When we got home I made this ! Diet Coke Cake for dessert this week .

Dinner tonight , 4 oz. chicken breast , Basil Gnocchi , and a green salad with some reduced fat cheese and a sprinkle of sunflower seeds . Really good , and really filling.

And last but never least …. dessert. This was my best concoction yet ! DC Cake with Dark Chocolate Dreams PB for frosting, topped with chocolate chips and shredded coconut !!!! It was so good !

Now I am going to jump in the shower and try to get to bed at a decent hour. Tomorrow, I am back to real life. Early morning workouts, and a long Monday at work. Wish me luck ! Hopefully it won’t be too much of a shock to my system after a week of sleeping in and doing as I please

Have a great Monday !

    Do you have the recipe for the Diet Coke cake or know where I can get it? It looks delish! 🙂

    That is so funny about the dark chocolate raisinets! I bought those to have at my book club meeting because I don’t like them! Worked very well! But it was very hard to find a treat that I didn’t like! Actually, in binge mode, I would have eaten them anyway, but I don’t do that anymore.

    Maybe I’m a little slow…but how do you make a diet coke cake? It’s it a lot less calories? It looks amazing.

    Have a great day back at work today!
