Where did the weekend go?

I'm feeling a lot better and feel refresh after a 5 mile walk with Steve and Sophie (Sophie didn't really do much walking, she pretty much slept in my arms). So here is Sunday and Monday.

Sunday

We have so much fruit, so for breakfast I had a fruit salad and two of the Blueberry-Oat Bars I made last week.


For lunch I had some leftovers from Sunday's party. Some of the roasted red pepper hummus I made, some guacamole, a tomato, some baked tostitos, and pretzel crisps.

I started feeling stick, with a huge migraine a little after lunch and the day went down hill from there. I was supposed to go on a long bike ride with Steve but I felt so exhausted that I needed to lay down. I told him I would go after a small nap. Well I ended up sleeping from 2-4 before Steve came to check on me. When he woke me up, I had a full blown migraine and told him to go without me. I tried to have a snack of 1 cup of cereal and 1 cup of skim milk.

I then fell back asleep from 4-6:15pm. We had made plans to have dinner at another couple's house who live down the road. We told them we would be there at 6:30, so even though I had a migraine we figured we couldn't cancel. They were making homemade Belgium Waffles with a mix from Williams Sonoma (Sorry no picture). They had the most heavy duty waffle maker I have ever seen. It made two Belgium waffles at one time. I had mine with a little maple syrup and a side of cantaloupe. We stayed there talking until 9:30 when my headache had come back strong.

Monday

Unfortunately a night of sleep didn't rid me of my migraine and I felt horrible this morning. Because I felt like crap last night, my husband was great and packed my Monday meals. He made this beautiful fruit salad for breakfast. I didn't eat breakfast until close to 9am, and even then I thought I was too sick to eat.

I had packed my gym bag to take a lunch time spin class, but my migraine was still around and I felt too weak. Even at lunch I didn't feel very hungry. I really didn't feel in the mood for the wonderful taco salad my husband made, but I convinced myself to try to eat it. I'm glad I did because it really did taste wonderful. In one container I take a chopped romaine salad and then in another I have one serving of Baked Tostitos, 1/3 cup Morningstar crumbles, salsa, and 1 slice of soy cheese. I microwave the taco mixture at work and then put it on top of the salad.

At 4pm I decided to eat the Fiber One Bar that was a sample in our Sunday newspaper, that my husband packed in my lunch. It was a little too sweet for me today, but other times I've had these I liked them (although I do not like the list of ingredients). I have never bought a box of these, but I have purchased them in an emergency from a gas station or from a vending machine.

I got home around 6:30pm and decided to try some frozen Indian food that Steve and I bought at Whole Foods last week.

Here is my Ethnic Gourmet dinner out of the box with the Naan Bread. The Ethnic Gourmet meal tasted pretty good, although I don't think that it was quite as good as the Amy's Frozen Indian Meals. The Korma had 300 calories and one piece of the bread had 182 calories. The Naan bread was actually really good and I'm sure we will buy it again.

I split the third piece of Naan bread with Steve.

The walk made me a little hungry so I had a handful of Trader Joe's mini meringue.

I am super tired and am hoping that my headache doesn't come back, so I better get to bed.

I'm sorry about your migraine :o( Feeling bad is just no fun at all, especially in the summer and even more so when you have things to do (like work, ugh).

That fruit salad looks amazing though. And that naan bread? I'm going to need to look for that next time I go shopping!

oooh i love naan!

what kind of cereal is that? looks scrumptious! :)

That cereal was bought in a moment of weakness, a huge sale, and a blast from the past. It is a new kind by Kellogg's called Keebler Cookie Crunch Cereal. It is mini Fudge Stripes and Chips Deluxe cookies. Next time I have it I'll post a picture of the box. Sometimes for a treat growing up my mom would buy Cookie Crisp, so it is a little like that.

wow does that fruit salad look AMAZING!

I've been meaning to try those frozen dinners---they look so good, especially the bread!

If you're looking for a good Indian restaurant in Pittsburgh, I recently tried Tamarind (I went to the one in Greentree but I think they have another location too). It was really good and very authentic. I blogged about it a few days ago. You should give it a try!
