What I Ate II

WIA today on 2/11, aka my first day as a Full Time Sales Lead at Express AND my first day attempting a 10-15 lb weight loss (this is *not* intended to be triggering to ED people, but *IF* it is, PLEASE DO NOT READ THIS POST EVEN THOUGH I KNOW YOU PROBABLY WILL, YOU ASSHOLES 😑 ). Yes, I’m trying to lose 10 lbs. No, I’m not going to do it in an eating disordered way, damn it. I’ve learned so much and don’t need my ED behaviors anymore! So here we go ~

Pacific Rose apple in the a.m…

An egg with a piece of French bread + black bean and jalapeno hummus + sriracha for breakfast.

Ready to go into work today as my first day as Full-Time Sales Lead!

My delightful little lunch – salad with chicken breast, “chicken dipping sauce,” and Sesame Ginger dressing. So good!

AND after work and lookin’ wild, ready for a hot toddy (which my husband sweetly made me as I have a very sore throat and the sniffles).

… and tea, soy milk, and honey to follow (yes, that’s my face drinking the tea … horrid pic lol!) …

I had a snick snack of bell pepper and hummus while hubs started our very special dinner … πŸ™‚

While I chilled out, Luke made us lamb chops Italian Style for the first time with a rosemary lemon garlic sauce and said it was our Valentines Dinner since both of us will be working on the 14th. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ Awww I love my hubs!

Y’all …. I’m one lucky girl – Luke cooked a perfect lamb chop (medium rare) and made a delightful sauce … I could taste the garlic, the lemon, the rosemary, the butter … soooo good! I added half of a cucumber and some broccoli with ranch to my plate. And pinot noir rounded the meal out! Happy (Early) Valentines Day to us!

Dessert was apple with some smoked Gouda cheese and Tajin … easy peasy, yummy yummy …

… and I captured a picture sequence which I’m calling “The Evolution of Persephone” …

… I drank soy milk tea (Caramel Apple Spice Slim Down Tea … sooo good! I can’t believe it’s supposedly for weight loss, ha!) too. Soo good, so soothing to my poor throat, all while Persephone looked on in a silly manner!

That’s a WRAP for tonight, my friends! I hope you had a lovely Monday – mine was great despite being pretty sick!
