Monday's Food Pics

I did a 2 mile walk at the park yesterday since it was so pretty outside and Billie wasn't able to go to the gym with me. We're going to the gym tonight at 6:30 this evening though for some good cardio and weight machines. My calories today are 1300 and I'm done eating for the day. Had a little too much fun over the weekend and need to shave a few off for the rest of the week.

Here's some bbq pork ribs and butternut squash w/ cinnamon and nutmeg that I baked last week and forgot to post the pic:

Today my mom, sister Amy and nephew Cyress came over for lunch. We made shrimp quesadillas with shrimp, cheese, spinach & fresh salsa on whole wheat 50 calorie tortillas. This was the first time I've ever made these at home and they were delish!

Dinner was a scrumptious stir fry w/ turkey sausage, yellow squash, onions, mushrooms, carrots and bell peppers.

I'm headed to the gym soon so I've got to wrap this up. Hope everyone else has had a yummy Monday! :)

  2. Food looks yummy!! I need to start experimenting with squash...:) Have fun at the gym!

  3. The food looks delicious Tammy. I love what you are doing now, delicious food, enjoyable exercise and you have a spring in your step:)

    Thank s for your lovely comment, it is always lovely to hear from you:)



  4. Love that butternut squash, as I told you my favorite veggie ever!

    Well done on the 2mile walk...Its too cold this side of the world to walk outdoors...well for me anyway, remember I come from Africa and am used to lovely hot weather...the Germany's are still out walking, the kids play outdoors, mom push their babies in prams and I look and think they all crazy....LOL

  5. The food looks really good. Great job on your walk.

  6. Hi Tammy,
    I'm back to reading...I've been going nuts these last to weeks! I put you on my Google reader so I can keep track better.

  7. I was already hungry before reading the post, and now I am MORE hungry. Everything looks so good :-)

  8. The turkey sausage stir fry looks real good. I have never thought to do that with turkey sausage, so now I know I must try this out. It's good that you are enjoying the gym. I work out with hand weights for my arms. Floor work is impossible since I have two total knee replacements, and getting down to the floor hurts. Keep up the gooe work, and great attitude.......hugs, Kathleen

  9. Your meals look yummy as always, and always inspire me (keep them coming!)
    I also went for a long walk/jog with my daughter yesterday evening. The weather and sunset were just perfect!

  10. I am so glad you like to cook! The food looks fantastic! I will have to try that stir fry. I have never tried turkey sausage, so that may be a great way to try it out. Thanks for the great idea.
