Cookin' on Thursday

Cookin'! Yep, that was me in this picture. We took an extra long walk at lunch today. It was hot and I forgot my walking shoes. During our walk, we stopped for a quick daily outfit pic.
So here I am cookin' in the sun.
long sleeve tee - Banana Republic
belt and shoes - Target
Dana Buchman skirt - thrifted ($6)
houndstooth tights - gifted from Holley
scarf - gifted by Marbelle
My good friend Holley gave me these tights a while back and I'm not sure why it took me so long to wear them. They are so awesome! I love the pattern (houndstooth up close) and they are so comfortable. She found them at Walmart for just $2. Thanks for thinking of me Holley!
After work it was onto the gym for a trainer session and cardio. Lots of heavy weights today. I know I'll be sore tomorrow and/or Saturday. I did 25 minutes of cardio on the treadmill. I didn't jog as long, but did up my speed a tad. You can see my stats on my Bodybugg screen shot at the bottom of this post.
Once I got home from the gym, it was time to get my cookin' on (see the theme here?). I decided to try another recipe of Pam's since last night's was a hit. Tonight I tried Pam's Cilantro and Lime Chicken. Yummers! Great flavor and it's easy on the calories. Thanks again Pam! I sooo love your recipe blog. Pictured below is my dinner plate. I know it looks like I cram a lot of food on the plate, but you should see Will's plate. It's a little more sparse. Will eats on regular sized plates and I eat on small plates. I feel like I have a lot of food without overdoing it. Does anyone else do this?
On this plate:
3 oz serving Pam's Cilantro Lime Chicken
1/2 c chopped okra (boiled)
3/4 c roasted cauliflower (I love this stuff!)
1/4 of a red bell pepper sliced
1 1/2 tbsp of fresh guacamole (for the bell pepper slices)
Total calories for this meal: 288!

I hope everyone has a wonderful day. Here's to fab outfits, good food, and happy workouts!

You look lovely - those tights are FAB! Your legs look amazing in those.

Your dinner looks great, and super healthy. I actually bought plates with a 2" dark blue border - the plate looks smaller and I tend not to put food on the border.
