As the scent of cinnamon rolls fills my house this morning, I can’t believe I have made it a whole week on my diet/get healthy plan! No, the cinnamon rolls weren’t for me and I didn’t eat one. I am so happy/proud of myself! I am going to post some pics etc of what I had this weekend- I sort of cheated on Saturday, but nothing major. On Friday my friend and I went on a lunch date (with her precious little 1 year old- my god-daughter) at Rosie’s Grill. As we munched on their Winslow Salad with added grilled chicken- she told me that you have to have a cheat on your diet- or you won’t make it. Lol, I totally agreed. I would be miserable if I hadn’t.

So, weekend update on my meals:

Friday Morning- Plain Nonfat Yogurt, Kashi Blueberry (1/2 serving, the nutritional value of a full serving of this cereal was more than everything in the nutritional value of one cinnamon roll! yikes!), and strawberries.

Friday Lunch- WINSLOW’S Salad

Spring mix topped with avocado, cucumbers, feta cheese, tomatoes and bacon bits. Got bacon bits on side and sprinkled a little on my salad. Add grilled chicken. We had balsamic vinaigrette as dressing. Rosie’s Grill-

Friday Dinner – We went on a dinner and a movie date night! We went to Stix, Blaise ordered Shrimp and Steak Hibachi and I ordered

Seared Tuna Tataki- Photo from Stix website:,

Onion Broth Soup-no photo

Seaweed Salad-  Photo from Stix website-

and some of Blaise’s zucchini from his hibachi.

Saturday Morning- Coffee, Whole Grain toast with fresh ground peanut butter, spinach, cheese, sprinkle of turkey sausage and onion omelet & strawberries and grapes. I was hungry and it was more of a brunch. We woke up late, lol.




Saturday Lunch- Leftover pesto chicken strips on baby romaine, pine nuts, onions, and vinaigrette. No pic, sorry!

Saturday Dinner- Low cal shrimp enchiladas.

Recipe here from Eating Well: I added a mini can of no salt added tomato sauce to the green chile/shrimp pan…. Also- Blaise even liked it! Score!

And last night, the other cheat (sort of) was at Moo Che Che Frozen Yogurt! I had the No Sugar Added Nonfat Strawberry with kiwi, strawberries, blackberry, almonds, and pecans! It was SOO good!

Sunday Morning- Smoked salmon, cream cheese, Wasa, and capers. Which I just found out yesterday that capers are flower buds from a flower found in Italy. Cool!

That’s where I am so far.. prob will have a salad for lunch and the enchiladas for dinner tonight!

I survived a week, and I’m not starving! I feel great and have 21 days left! So…I hope after that I will choose to keep my diet this way and make it a lifestyle change. Thanks for reading!
