Ugh. What a miserably cold, windy and rainy day! I am still not sure why I decided to wear tights and straighten my hair today (really, I had no real reason to do either of these things… except I didn’t wash my hair yesterday since I didn’t work out, so straightening it was the best option I had… shhh it’s not that gross!). At least I had my cute Sperry Rubber Slip On’s on (does that make sense? I hate when 2 of the same words are next to each other in a sentence):
That’s really all I had going for me this morning, though. The T was delayed and the masses of people ON the T was horrific. I don’t plan on going outside for the rest of the day:)
Anyway, I need to tell you about my dinner last night! Tuesday’s are my “rest” days from the gym, so last night I went home, did 30 minutes of self-practice yoga in my room and then thought about what I could have for dinner. I wasn’t really in the mood for stuffed peppers or taco salad, but I did want to use some of the leftover pepper stuffing. Enter: a “Taco” Quesadilla! This week, I ended up buying these wraps. They are the perfect size (most are so big!) and really low in calories so it’s a great way to get a little carb fix in without feeling too guilty about it!
All I did was layer a little shredded cheese on half of it, some of the taco mixture from Sunday and then a little more cheese.
And, voila! A delicious and relatively healthy weeknight meal. I didn’t even feel like I was eating leftovers- that’s the best part!
Now, if only I had something a little more exciting for lunch… This week I have been getting back to the basics with healthy salads, greek yogurt and fruit. My coworker and I call this “Moe’s Leaning Tower Lunch”.
It’s quite the struggle carrying all those containers from the kitchen to the lunch room (it’s a much farther walk than you would think!). Broken down, it’s a salad with veggies, quinoa and goat cheese, dressing, greek yogurt (really liked the Hannaford “Inspirations” brand!) and strawberries. Yum, yum, yum! (and, when I have a salad for lunch, I feel like I don’t have to worry about eating as many vegetables at dinner time… please tell me I am not the only one who uses that type of rationalization…)
I am excited to teach UXF Burn tonight- Hoping I have a huge turnout like last week. I am feeling MUCH better and I am ready to kick people’s butts tonight:)
Hope you’re all staying warm and try!
Questions for you: Leftovers: love ’em or hate ’em? How is your week going?

That “leaning tower” is amazing! I will also definitely try that taco quesadilla!!
I LOVE leftovers as you know–I think I am the queen of LO’s(left overs, for those of you who don’t know the Gagnon jargon!)Dad and I took out frozen containers of left-over stuffing for green peppers tonight. I also made a lowfat scalloped potato–okay, I added cheese and wine. I did make a batch of healthy granola-type cookies from the COOKING LIGHT calendar–perfect for freezing!
You absolutely are the queen of LO’s, but I think I am a close runner up:) Oohhh, send me that recipe for the granola type cookies! I’d love to make those!
