My goals for last week were:
Drink 6 glasses of water each day.I managed this- I am still limiting myself to two cups of coffee a day and chilling my water has made such a difference.
Have two vegetarian meals this week.
We had pumpkin soup and garlic bread on Saturday as we were still feeling a bit yucky, and then had Spinach Enchiladas for tea on Wednesday night. They were amazing so I thought I would share the recipe with you (see below).
Have a fruit platter for Monday night dessert.
It rained all day Monday and so I ended up warming the apricots and putting granola on top. Still a fruit dessert, just a warm option!
Eat a healthy option when I go out for dinner on Sunday.
We ended up going out for breakfast as it was easier to get a babysitter. I only had a half portion of the Eggs Benedict, but I did allow myself to indulge a bit as I was needing some food after my tummy bug! I am glad I did not get the full portion, it was enough to satisfy me and I really enjoyed being out for a meal with my husband to celebrate our wedding anniversary.
The Spinach Enchiladas I made were a fantastic vegetarian meal, as my whole family loves Mexican inspired food and no-one missed the meat. I based it on this version but I used low fat versions of all the dairy products, cut down on the amount of cheese and used light tortillas.
- cooking oil spray
- 1/2 cup sliced green onions
- 2 cloves garlic minced
- 1 (10 ounce) package frozen chopped spinach thawed, drained and squeezed dry
- 1 cup light ricotta cheese
- 1/2 cup light sour cream
- 1 cup shredded cheese
- 6 (6 inch) light flour tortillas
- 1 (19 ounce) can enchilada sauce
On to my health and fitness goals for this week:
Cook a special and healthy Valentines Day meal for my husband.
Buy some new underwear! All my unmentionables keep slipping down when I walk, not a good look when I am wearing a skirt.
Do the Summer Arms Challenge each day.
Send my son off to his first day of preschool with a healthy lunch.
Linking up to Getting Fit Friday! I would love for you to join us.
