Protein, Protein & More Protein

I dropped a total of 1.8 pounds last week. The scale hasn't dropped since Tuesday but I've been extremely hungry. I was eating between 1300-1500 calories and my body got used to that for a few weeks. I know that probably isn't enough calories for me but I haven't been working out. Now that I've been hungry so much I've slowly been upping my calories. I'm sitting around 1600-1700 calories. The food I've been adding is mostly protein. Egg whites have been a staple. I think I need to add more veggies too.


Saturday morning my hubby and I ate breakfast in bed while watching Supernatural. I had a turkey bacon and egg white sandwich with a side of more egg whites and Stephen ate his usually banana. He added a little bit of peanut butter. He doesn't like breakfast foods.


We tried this Trader Joe's Grilled Chicken Strips. They were pretty good and really convenient.
 
 
I also ordered this PEScience White Chocolate Mint protein powder. I love anything mint chocolate and we were getting low on protein powder. This stuff is amazing mixed in coffee. I'd like to try making protein brownies or pancakes with this too. 


My hubby made homemade hummus yesterday. I felt bad because I thought we had cumin in the house. When we were shopping I told him no need to buy any because we had some. Got home and he started making his hummus only to realize we didn't have any. Oops. I still think it tastes great. We made wraps for dinner last night. You can't see but there is mesquite turkey, hummus, a little bit of feta, mixed baby greens, cucumber and tomato in the wrap. And bruschetta veggie chips on the side. Vader was really wanting some. No sir, this is not for you.


And the best part of the entire weekend - We got a rug!!! I've been wanting needing a rug in our living room. Our couches are in four pieces so whenever anyone would sit on them they'd go sliding because of the wood floor. I was getting really tired of having to straighten them out every day. We've been looking and looking. I wanted something with a design but some of them were too crazy for me and I had to automatically say no to anything with white or cream because of Vader. Stephen ran to Home Depot on Saturday. He sent me a photo and I loved it! I miss the feel of carpet on my feet so I love it.
 
 
Vader loves it too!
