7 Day Eat at Home Day 5 Recap


Day 5 of the 7 Day Eat at Home Challenge started as planned. I woke up on time today : ), packed everything and went to work. While at work, for breakfast I ate my oatmeal and drank my mixed berry smoothie.

For lunch I ate my “taco in a bag”, which was left over taco meat, and toppings from Tuesdays meal. I put everything in a single serve Doritos bag and ate it out of the bag with a fork.

Now, we’ll get to dinner. For dinner nothing went as planned. For one, whatever’s in the air is not agreeing with my body. After leaving work I walked outside, and walked down to campus to take care of some business (it’s a block away from my job). I guess during the walk I inhaled some pollen (or whatever thats in the air), and immediately started having an allergic reaction. I was itching everywhere, my throat swelled up, eyes got itchy and red, and I had to take a few puffs of my inhaler to breath. As soon as I got home I jumped in the shower to rid my body from whatever was on it. Of course you know I immediately fell asleep after the shower, lol. I ended up waking up close to 9 p.m. Now, thats a little too late for me to get up and make a full dish, so I ended up making a nice bowl of cereal (frosted flakes).

Tomorrow I plan on having bacon and eggs for breakfast, a BLT for lunch, and black bean w/avocado and lime quesadilla’s for dinner (recipe will be posted).
