Hey everyone! I have had a busy week as I stated in my last post..I got offered 2 new jobs (and had to pick which one I wanted, talk about a blessing!) ...Got in an accident, (I'm OK thank God!)... And started my new job all in one week! It was a whirl-wind!
Needless to say, I'm still here, and so thankful for life, and God providing an awesome job that I think i'm going to really love! So far I love the people I will be working with and loved all that patients I've met!
That being said, I was due for a much-needed date with my hubby! So after breakfast we went to church, and then out to the mall and a date~ Olga's, then a movie (Karate Kid), and then out to Applebee's for dinner! (Talk about a great "date"!!!) :)
I of course started my day with one of my new favorite shakes~ an Orange Cream Cooler (which really is too funny since I had no idea we would be going to Olga's for lunch!)
After church we went to the mall, and I got a Decaf Americano! (Thanks for the gift card Josh!)
We went to Williams and Sonoma (Where I feel like a kid in a candy store!) And I got these cute pink and yellow dish towels and oven mit on sale! :)
After shopping for a bit (and I do mean a bit...Sean has limited 'shopping time' ;)) we stopped in the pet store to cuddle this cutie, and stopped at Olga's for lunch!
I got a Chicken Salad with Feta, Apple Slices, Pecans, (everything is tossed in and hidden!) :) With a side of Fat-Free Olga Bread, (Not the healthiest side, but I get it every now and then, and it's definitely better than the regular Olga Bread~ a whopping 300 calories less to be exact!) So if i'm going to splurge on the bread, I am always sure to request the fat free version!
Sean got a Olga Burger~ He is a child at heart when it comes to food, what can I say. :)
For a snack I had a pack of these~ 100 Calorie Pack of Cocoa Roasted Almonds! (These are heavenly, all natural, and slightly sweet! You get quite a bit for 100 calories, so it makes a good snack!)
We went to Applebee's for dinner, and I got one of my usual favorites~ The Garlic Herb Chicken Breast, with a Side of Broccoli! (They usually serve it with potato's, but I am a broccoli lover from way back, so I ask for just broccoli!)
They usually give me a whole head of broccoli instead of the potatoes, (which I LOVE), and I like to dip it in ketchup~weird I know!
(Sorry this picture is from the website...I forgot my camera!)
I came home and had some Homemade Strawberry Ice Cream!!! I used 1/2 cup greek yogurt, 1/2 cup strawberries, and 1 cup almond milk and stevia. I simply gave them a quick whirl in my blender, and put them in my new ice cream maker, and 20 minutes later...voila~ low sugar, high protein, creamy and delicious~Ice Cream!!!
I also had some Vanilla Chai Tea, with Whipped Cream to hit the 'sweet craving' that I so often get after eating out, (usually because the meals are so salty!)
I start my first full week tomorrow, so prayers are appreciated! :) Have a blessed week!!! Be sure to stay tuned for a loaded baked potato salad recipe coming this week! :)
