My family’s Christmas Eve party is tonight and we’ve got lots of setting up to do so this will have to be kept quick.
After my last post Adam and I set out for some exercise. We ran on the waterfront downtown together. We did walk/run intervals for 40minutes. I’m not sure exactly how far we ran but I burnt 450calories.
Adam and my parents made chili for dinner (which I’m really not a fan off, unless it’s from ED&BV) so I pieced a few things together. Like a smoothie -
1/2 cup low fat cottage cheese, 1/2 cup pineapple, 1 small banana, splash milk, squeeze honey. Topped with nutmeg.
My mom also reheated me a slice of pizza from the freezer, Adam ate all of my half from the other day so it was just plain cheese.
We went out for drinks with some friends but I was the driver so I stuck to diet coke. We stayed out past 1 though, so we were a little sleepy the next day!
Our plan was to go study at our favorite coffee shop, but due to our late start and some unexpected traffic it just didn’t work out. I was planning on blogging too, but I forgot my camera cord, doh! We did get tasty sandwiches to eat in the car while we ran errands with my mom though!
I got a whole wheat wrap with sweet potato, goat cheese, spinach, and spicy hummus, YUM.
I was feeling really sick later in the afternoon (NOT because of the sandwich, spicy food does NOT seem to affect my stomach) so Adam made me this yummy tasting plate.
Thankfully I rallied in time for dinner. Adam and I cooked for my parents and grandparents, who are down visiting as well.
Adam made a Real Simple recipe for roasted red pepper turkey meatloaf,
and I roasted up some okra and green beans.
My mom provided dessert -
A teensy sliver of rum cake a parent brought her,
and a peppermint chocolate cookie.
I ate a snowball a little later too.
And a cup of Eggnog’n Tea.
And then we went out drinking way too late for the second night! Good times were had by all, but I did stick to diet coke again.
I think the no-booze rule saved me last night because I was able to get up this morning and go for a run! I did ~ 45minutes/490 calories, and ~3miles. I did my pt when I got home before I dove into this -
holy food am I glad I can find the pineapple Chiobani down here!
Although I was probably most excited about this Carebear spoon I dug up!
Now as soon as we leave the library we are heading home to prep for the party. There won’t really be dinner or lunch today, more like lots of snacking on really tasty things.
I probably won’t be posting again until after this weekend, so to all my readers who celebrate – MerryChristmas!
