week in review - Jan 16-20

Monday:
Miss C had didn't have school due to MLK day.
My lunch: can of soup and banana
(quickly thrown into my purse on the way out the door)

Tuesday
Miss C's day off

My lunch:
Crockpot spinach lasagna (lean ground beef, tons of spinach, minimal cheese), 
spring mix salad & blueberries
I'm trying this healthy eating thing where moderation is key... 
before, the bigger portion of the container would have been filled with lasagna. 
I'm learning. 

Wednesday:

Miss C's lunch was turkey roll ups with carrots,
blueberries, rice cakes and yogurt.


My lunch:
Chili w/1/2c rice & banana
(p.s. just in case my bootcamp trainer is reading this, its made of lean ground beef,
diced tomatoes, and beans, just 1/2 c [measured] of rice, and 1 tbsp of cheese".)

Thursday:

Miss C's lunch:
turkey & cheese teddy bear sandwich
teddy grahams, grapes & pudding cup

My lunch:
spring salad with sliced turkey, apple.
(confession: i did have an apple pie at lunch that was brought it
by a former coworker from Peru who came to visit)

Friday:

Miss C's: "breakfast for lunch" (she still thinks this is the silliest thing ever!)
rice krispies+coco krispies mix (with milk)
apple & yogurt w/sprinkles.

My lunch:
I won't say what I got there cuz it wasn't healthy! Ha!
Zumba tomorrow at 10am to make up for it!

I don't really care if my husband gets teased about his lunches. I don't think he does either. He rarely eats lunches, so when he was participating in the Crossfit Open last March, he needed to maintain a healthier eating routine, I was a little more giddier than he was to pack his lunches too. I didn't take many pictures of them, since he didn't care much for presentation, but with EasyLunchBoxes, it was easy to arrange the food in different compartments.

Last weekend, he participated in a mud/foam run in Chicago with the some of the athletes at our Crossfit box. It was a 2.5 hour bus ride each way, so he needed to pack lunch and a post-race dinner.  Of course I jumped on that opportunity to pack his lunches too. :)
