Messing up my back at the end of the week did a real number on my goals this week, unfortunately. Here’s a rundown:
I’m not 100% sure but I think I only cooked twice this week. I made the Spicy Sausage Broccoli Rabe Parmesan. Hubby thought it was ok but I really liked it. Then when I ate some left overs the next day I loved it. THEN when I polished off the left overs on the third day, I wished we had more. I liked the slight bite of the broccoli rabe along with the hint of spiciness. I think I’ll add this to the list of meals we’ll have “every once in a while” since my husband thought it was just ok. On Tuesday (I think it was Tuesday), I made the Spanikopita with a side of some couscous (Ya! I used some of the couscous at long last!). Again, I liked these better than my husband did. We both agreed that these would be better as appetizers than dinner. Maybe Spanikopita is never meant to be a meal. I dunno. I can’t for the life of me remember what we had on Wednesday. I know my husband picked up dinner on Thursday because that’s when I pulled the muscle. We picked up some dinner and took it to a friend’s house to see their new baby (oh, how I love newborns) on Friday and went to another friend’s home for a dinner party on Saturday. Not great.
#10 on the LIST: Limit Fast Food
Not good this week. REALLY not good. Had fast food THREE times this week, twice for lunch and once for a snack that I probably didn’t really need. And it was all pretty bad stuff – Taco Bell, Chick-Fil-e and McDonalds. And of course along with it, I blew my goals for…
#11 on the LIST: Limit Soda to once a month
Ya, every time we got fast food, I had a soda. Sigh. One sweet tea and two Dr. Peppers. Damn it.
So clearly, I get a sad face for performance against my goals this week. Wop wop wop.
But really, I feel like this guy, sad and embarrassed:
