It's Sunday. Vacation is almost over....so sad. We always take the Monday off following a vacation because it's just easier to glide into the work week on a Tuesday. I don't know why that is but it works for us.
We enjoyed a variety of naughty foods and drinks while we were off but it's time to get back to healthier eating. Many of our vacay meals were fairly healthy, I must add, such as grilled fish and raw oysters but there was the indulgence of 2 bottles of champagne and several bottles of Chardonnay, red blends, a few cocktails and beer. Plus the aforementioned post listing of Jalapeño poppers, and chips and salsa and peach tarts.....yeah, like that.
So on Saturday, instead of a cheeseburger, I selected a turkey wrap stuffed with lettuce, tomatoes, red onions, sweet peppers and light Italian dressing. It's never a hardship for me to eat a wrap, I love 'em.
As you can see this one was packed. By the end of the second half I was just picking out the veggies and eating them as I was getting too full to continue eating the tortilla. Whew.....glad I didn't order the corn nuggets as I had originally planned.
After lunch we took a short ride down a shady canopied road. Great weather and cool temperatures, we hated to come home but we still had to get some shopping done. I also needed a haircut, getting shaggy and I suppose I will play dress up and pretend I am an adult and get back to work.
Once we leave the workforce I assure you my "uniform" will be shorts, jeans, t-shirts, boots and sandals .....weather dependent on those choices.
Healthy meal plans coming up and a switch back to gluten-free soon. Doug needs to get off the Prilosec for a while and interesting enough, he doesn't have the heartburn issues when we eliminate gluten.
Hope your week is shaping up well and weather is good for anyone reading this.
