It turned out to be a late night out after all yesterday. Chris and I met up with friends downtown for dinner at Napasorn Thai restaurant and split quite a tasty feast of jasmine rice, Panang snapper, garlic pepper chicken and veggies, sate chicken skewers, and fish cakes.
So yes, that was my big cheat of the week. I decided that meal 6 wasn’t really called for after that. We left around 10 pm and headed over to a theater on the way home to catch the fabulous Stardust. If you are a fan of happily ever after fairy tales with some humor thrown in (think Princess Bride), you will love this movie. I really must dig out my copy of the original Neil Gaiman graphic novel from my comic book collection at my parents’ house this weekend and re-read it.
I got up too late this morning to get in my workout before I had to head out to my complimentary introductory session at the local Super Suppers meal assembly kitchen down the street, but I did get two spiffy entrees prepped and even did my weekly grocery run at Albertsons ($1.99 boneless/skinless chicken breast and super cheap seedless grapes this week!) on the way home.
Chris is doing his share of the wedding thank you cards, and I’m doing bulk food prep, freezer reorganization, laundry, and some small gardening tasks.
I’m going to give my lunch (a braided Italian meatball bread thingie with onions and green peppers from Super Suppers) time to digest, then do my postponed workout around 3 pm.
Meals are on target calorie-wise so far, and it’s finally my official “I can have processed stuff as long as I stay under 2000 calories” day.
