Lunch recipe, my ankle and more silly memes

Happy Friday ya’ll!!!!  I have been one busy little beaver these days so I thought I would just pop in and say hello real quick before my busy weekend commences.

This will be me in a couple of hours and I am PUMPED

ImageAnyway, last week I found a yummy lunch recipe from Kath Eats and I thought I would share!  The actual recipe is found here.  It’s a lemon caper chickpea salad and it was DELICIOUS!  It is super easy to make and quite filling.  The main ingredients include capers, chickpeas, tomatoes and spinach.  She also calls for feta cheese but I used goat cheese because I am not a fan of feta.  Here’s what the finished product looked like:

ImageIn other news, I finally made it into the orthopedic surgeon’s office and his news was good and bad.  He said that my hardware (from my ORIF surgery) is fine but that I have tendonitis in my ankle from the scar tissue.  It was good news because I don’t need surgery but bad news because there’s not much that can be done about it except perhaps physical therapy.  Waaah!  

I was especially annoyed because I had to wait an ENTIRE HOUR before I was seen!!!  What is up with these doctors who can’t keep their appointments?!?!?!?  If I was consistently late to meetings, I would be fired.  Anyway, at least there was an awesome view from my waiting room!

ImageAnd because it is Friday, I am going to share with you some of my favorite memes about working out.  I hope this does a good job of distracting you from your work!

What I ate Wednesday and my favorite memes

Hey, hey!

Doesn’t moving suck?

I spent my Saturday biking through the West Loop looking for potential places to live, but once I looked online I found that these apartments are expensive.  I’m talking like $2,500 a month for a 2 bedroom/2 bathroom, expensive.  Ouch.

Here is a money shot of the city:

ImageI also saw this strange (and large) door with a monster peeking out, RANDOM…

ImageLike, wtf IS that?!?!? I digress…

Anyway, my best girlfriends and I have decided that first, they will make a trip to Chicago in May and then we will all make a trip to NYC in July.  The July trip will involve me hanging out by the pool with a bunch of models whilst in my bikini so I decided to start an online weight loss challenge to prepare for this mortifying super fun event.  

With the challenge in full swing, I have been keeping a close eye on what I eat.  Today looked like this…

Breakfast: Spinach, carrot, banana, pineapple smoothie (est. 180 calories)

ImageLunch was a salad with spinach (again, ugh), walnuts, carrot sticks, beets and bleu cheese dressing (est. 400 calories)

ImageSnacks: fat free cottage cheese with 3 strawberries and a red anjou pear (est. 230 calories)

ImageDinner was Kath’s Slow Cooker Chicken served with avocado, cilantro and sweet potato + kale on the side (est. 500 calories).  I didn’t take a picture because hers would put my pictures to shame.

Daily totals amounted to about 1,300 calories.  Since I worked out, this should be o-okay.

Whenever I am on a diet, this is what I’m constantly thinking about…

I don’t know why, but some of these internet memes get me every. single. time.  Here are a few of my favorites.
