Hey how was everyone’s day? 🙂
Mine was a busy one.
Breakfast was a smoothie-to-go (frozen cherries, almond milk, sunwarrior, flax).
The rest of the day’s snacks:
It was my surgery day at work. I ate early as I usually do on surgery days. (Everything you see above was gone by noon). Being on my feet for hours in surgery is kind of like a marathon. I typically load up beforehand so I can sustain my energy. Unfortunately this usually sets me up to be hungry later in the day. Needless to say I was starving by the time I got off work. Luckily I had a continuing education meeting to attend and dinner was being provided.
The meeting was at King’s Fish House in Tempe. I arrived late which is always fun and so naturally they seated me front and center. Dinner was from a pre-fixed menu with three options for entrees: top sirloin, tilapia and a bowtie pasta and chicken dish. I chose the tilapia along with a mixed green salad. For dessert, I opted for the chocolate cake, a no-brainer. 😉
The tilapia was blackened and served with roasted carrots and it was surprisingly quite tasty (these dinner meetings can be really hit or miss). Just when I thought it couldn’t get any better I was presented with a piece of chocolate cake the size of my head. (OK I’m exaggerating a little but this thing seriously had some height). I had only planned on having a taste but I ended up eating the entire thing. Since I’d already fallen into the hunger trap, it seemed pretty useless to resist. And I can honestly say I enjoyed every bite. 🙂
Now I’m pleasantly full and feeling like this.
Ready to get a good night’s sleep and get back on the healthy track tomorrow!
Good night. 🙂
