Friday Outfit/Monday Dinner

Since I dressed so casually at work today, you get Friday's outfit instead. Normally I wouldn't wear "fun" shoes like these to work, but it was Friday, everyone else was very casual, and I just wanted to wear my sparkly summer shoes :-)

Here are the details:
  • Brown sleeveless cowl neck - JCP
  • White denim skirt - Gifted from Holley
  • Gold Necklace - Target
  • White flower - Clarie's
  • Beaded slide wedges - Target
So remember when I said I was about 3 lbs off from my goal? Well..umm...yeah...didn't happen. I just got too comfortable and I actually gained a few pounds. Six to be exact. Yes, I said 6! Soooo not happy about it. Darn you summertime ice cream! Even if I get the light or the fro-yo, that stuff creeps up on you if you aren't careful. I'm sure going to The Cheesecake Factory the night before weigh-in didn't help my case either. So to get myself back on track, I am wearing my Bodybugg again and tracking my food carefully. Instead of posting my screen prints of my Bodybugg stats, I will be posting my stats via BodybuggTweet which will show up on my Twitter updates. I will get to that goal!

So on to my dinner. I know a lot of people love to have breakfast for dinner. So here was my version of breakfast for dinner along with the stats...

Egg White Scrabble With Asparagus, Tomatoes, Onions, and Cheese
(Only 178 calories! Protein: 23.2 g ~ Carbs: 10 g ~ Fat: 7 g)

  • 1/3 c chopped asparagus
  • 1/4 c minced onions
  • 1 clove of garlic minced
  • 1/4 c chopped tomatoes
  • 1 oz 2% shredded cheese
  • dash of salt and pepper

Whisk egg whites with a fork and season with salt and pepper and set to the side. Using a small skillet on medium heat, lightly mist your pan with olive oil. Add onions, garlic, and asparagus, stirring for 3-5 minutes. Add tomatoes and cook for another minute. Remove and set aside. Lightly mist your pan with olive oil and add the egg whites. Stir using a spatula to break up the whites for about 3-4 minutes, then add the asparagus mixture to the pan. Toss and serve. Sprinkle cheese on top. Enjoy!

Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope everyone has a great day!

Brown and white always go so well together. I really like that top. I went to Target yesterday and saw one similar. I plan to get it once it goes on sale.

Thanks Cristina! The brown top has been a great buy. It goes with so much a looks great with a jacket during the colder months. Hope you get a good deal!
