I’ve been doing a good job of keeping my food journal even though I haven’t been sharing it. Sorry, I got out of the habit. This weekend really through me off!
Anyway, I’ve been rocking the motivation lately. Not being perfect by any means, but I’m getting workouts in when I can(I have a schedule now and it makes it so much easier,) and I’ve been much more conscious of my food choices which has always been my ultimate goal.
Today started with an odd breakfast becuase I knew this guy all too well.
I finished his bowl of shredded wheat and had a yogurt cup.
Later in the morning I munched on some nuts while feeding kid #2.
For lunch I grabbed a bowl of leftovers.
This one is hard to explain. I have no recipe it was just something a whipped up the night before for dinner. It was whole wheat pasta, leftover sauce, kidney beans, corn and peppers. I called it Sante Fe pasta bowl and suprisingly the family ate it.
About an hour later the husband asked if I wanted to go to lunch. Even though I just ate I said yes becuase honestly, we haven’t been spending enough time togther. He’s been swamped at work with end of the year deadlines. Plus how could I pass up lunch with 2 of my boys…
How cute is that?!?
Since I already ate I decided on a bowl of soup. They had an amazing 15 bean soup. It was awesome!
I also had some of those fries. Of course!
A few hours later the Little Guy came home from school and we had a couple of our homemade Christmas cookies.
I can’t WAIT to share this recipe in GreenLiteBites! We are going to make them again and take photos. They came out so good the Little Guy crowned me "the queen of cookies."
Seriously. I’m not lying!
While making dinner I snacked on a few bites of Little Bean’s butter beans. He was having an appetizer before dinner.
Dinner was AMAZING. I made Dry Rubbed Pan-Fried London Broil, roasted broccoli and potatoes.
No complaints on that one from the husband. ;)
Instead of binging once the kids went to bed, I paused and consciosuly made a snack.
PopChips with Simple Cheesy Salsa. SO good! Click here for the recipe.
Right now I’m enjoying a cup of tea and one more of those cookies. I know. I know. Not the best thing before bed. I should have brushed my teeth!
I’m debating if I should weigh in tomorrow. I’ve been feeling pretty good and I’m not sure if I want the scale to mess it up. Why let it have the power to ruin my momentum?
