Internet Not Working

Well for some reason my laptop is not connecting to the Internet and hasn't been the last couple of nights. Luckily I am a master at typing quickly on my I phone so this post is brought to you from my tiny phone screen. 

The challenge has been going well but could be going better. My hubby is getting ready for a hunting trip this weekend so we have been a little busy and hectic-which means we ate out last night and the tonight. But Monday night we made rosemary chicken with green beans and Parmesan tomatoes. If you have never made Parmesan tomatoes you are seriously missing out. Just cut a tomato in slices, use some olive oil on a baking sheet and on top of the tomatoes then sprinkle some Parmesan cheese and voila a delicious addition to any dinner. I just put those suckers on low broil and watch them carefully for a couple of minutes until they are done. 

Unfortunately the chicken turned out waaaay over done. I knew I should have cut the breasts in half before baking but got lazy and in turn the chicken kind of sucked- but hey I learned my lesson. I also learned a trick from my parents- I used fresh rosemary from my mini herb garden and instead of tearing it and putting it on top while the chicken baked I  kept it intact and placed a whole little sprig underneath the chicken. The herb doesn't burn and the chicken absorbs the flavor. 

Since I didn't want to eat that leftover chicken for lunch I had a protein shake at work and then a lettuce wrapped burger from in n out afterwards- and it was amazing. For dinner we had Mexican so I ordered fajitas minus beans and rice. They were really good! 
I also made a nutri bullet with a peach (pit removed bc FYI peach pits have cyanide), spinach, blueberries and chia seeds. It was good! 

Today- which is day 7- I had a protein shake, a banana, some green chile and pork for lunch and zabas (Mexican again) for dinner. I NEED to cook more or order more so I have lunch the next day. I have no idea what will be for lunch tomorrow :( I am hoping this unprepared stage I'm going through doesn't mess with the whole challenge. Time to re-focus and make some new goals tomorrow. 

Happy eating!
