Weekly Challenge #5
Make your own breakfast, lunch and dinner everyday next week. Details from the site:
You may pack food that you made at home OR you may visit a grocery store salad bar, but YOU must put your lunch together, whether you work at an office or from home. No take-out, no delivery!
All the rules apply to breakfast, lunch and dinner. If you are being social, dine in over a home-cooked meal with friends and then go out for something fun!
This does not mean that you can’t eat out. Our suggestion is to eat something ahead and order a salad or appetizer to nibble on. You can eat at a restaurant, it just can’t be a primary meal.
This is going to be rough. I’m driving to Philly for a WordPress conference on Saturday, and then on Sunday I’m going to the Maryland Renaissance Festival. Really gonna have to plan this one out.
As of today I am number 9 of 55 on my gym’s leaderboard. I am in the bonus point hole by one while everyone else ahead of me has points to spare. I’m hoping to be extra good for a little while to get back on track to a perfect score.
Got my two bonus points for the sleep challenge (still in the hole though). I need at least 7 hours of sleep a night to function anyway so it was easy peasy.
Breakfast: Three eggs with leftover bacon, spinach and green onions.
Snack: Banana, half an apple, and a handful of blueberries and almonds.
Lunch: Baked chicken breasts, half a sweet potato and leftover broccoli.
Dinner: Found a small amount of leftover chili in the fridge, so I downed it before it went bad. Nothing I hate more than wasted food.
Later I ate a much larger dinner: Beth’s Hawaiian chicken from the food swap, half a sweet potato and leftover broccoli. You wouldn’t think chicken, pineapple and bacon would go together, but this was freakin’ awesome.
Then I had a small cup of coffee.

Tabata situps and squats. Blah.
