OTRA: Day 6

Finally Friday! Looking forward to having both my boys around for the next three days; we are planning to do some touristy things (like remember the Alamo!) while we have the chance.

Breakfast: A few fresh raspberries, hard boiled egg white, Ezekiel toast with apple butter. 4 Honey Stinger chews on the way out to run. Need to hit the Whole Foods for more before we go home...those suckers are addictive.

Exercise: 45 minute run with the stroller. Intended to go for an hour, the little guy was getting too close to naptime. Did some arm exercises with the resistance band once he was down.

Snack: Organic low-fat fruit-on-the-bottom strawberry yogurt, coffee with milk.

Lunch: Oatmeal with apple butter and raw almonds, small chocolate protein shake. The oatmeal needed some cinnamon and/or agave, but I don't have either one with me.

Snack 2: Shared a fruit cup and chicken sandwich at Chick-fil-A with my little travel companion. He had such a blast watching the kids in the play area; the extra calories were totally worth it. Plus, we walked there and back, with a trip to Wal-Mart in between (over a mile round-trip). Grabbed some honey packets for putting on peanut butter toast (with banana! yum!) and maybe for my oatmeal another day.

Dinner: Taco salad made with Romaine, ground turkey, black beans, corn, salsa, and mild cheddar with a drizzle of Ken's Steakhouse ranch dressing (from the hotel happy hour yesterday) and those lovely no-salt tortilla chips crumbled on top. I adore black beans, especially when they're mixed with salsa and simmered until slightly thickened. I could eat that with a spoon.

Snack 3: Gluten-free brownies (thanks, Betty Crocker! Use less sugar next time!) and decaf with milk--a comfort food kind of snack. It's been a long week and I am utterly relieved that it's Friday. One down, one to go.
