Here is my weekly recap:
I exercised 3 days this week. Still not at my 4 days, but better than my one day last week. I had all intentions to exercise more this week and then they started calling for all this bad weather. I ended up having to stay at a friend’s house Tuesday night, to make sure I was at work the next morning. We ended up not getting much of anything snow wise, but it through my routing way off. I need the structure of planning out my day and when those plans go awry…ugh. I really need to work on that.
I made two new recipes this week. The cake batter blondies and honey dijon chicken. Both of them were fabulous. I’m glad that I decided to try them. I love trying new recipes.
I’ve been doing weight watchers this week, but I must say I haven’t been doing it as well as I would like to. I’m learning.
And to show you what I’ve been learning…. let me start out with some food today.
Thanks to Laura I tried a Green Monster for the first time today. Her recipe for a peanut butter green monster looked to good to pass up.
I threw all the ingredients into my blender and viola… you have my first green monster. The verdict? Well, I love Laura’s recipe. You really couldn’t taste the spinach and the peanut butter flavor was so good. After drinking I realized it might be a little too thick for my taste buds. I’m definitely going to make Laura’s recipe again. I think this time I’ll add a little more Almond Breeze! Thanks Laura! It was also quite filling. When I first saw the little amount in my glass I thought WHAT? It kept me full through my workout.
For a snack I had some yogurt, banana and glazed walnuts.
I had the day off and though I had sooo much that I needed to do, there just wasn’t much that I wanted to do. I did get a lot of the things on my to do list crossed off. I really shouldn’t complaining 🙂
Lunch was so good! When I was finished I wished there was more.
That salad was amazing!
I was feeling soo good with myself. I was on target for my weight watcher’s point. I had already exercised. I was really doing great today.
I threw some fruit in there as my snack since it’s 0 points.
And that’s where the story ends folks. For dinner I had honey Dijon chicken with green beans planned, but instead I ordered chinese. *shaking my head* I was too ashamed to even take a picture of what I ate. What happened from the time I was eating my fruit to dinner time.
I start to wonder… do I not want this enough? I’ve been struggling to lose weight for 8 years! 8 years people. 8 years I’ve been battling myself. Why can’t I just say enough is enough? I need to do some serious reevaluating on myself. If I don’t want to get healthier and lose weight why do I struggle with it? Why not just give up? Sorry this wasn’t supposed to turn into a whiney post. I had my pose all planned out… to show you what the weight watchers plan is supposed to do for you. I feel like I can have so much food when I plan it right. In the back of my mind I think.. well, I’ve already messed up this week. Monday can be a new start, but I know that’s not the right way to think. I should be thinking about tomorrow, not Monday.
I think I’m going to sit and think tonight, about what it is I really want and how I need to get there.
