My diet over the last 4 days progressively got worse and worse and my body didn’t like it at all.
Yesterday was the ridiculous. Let’s just say I had Lindor Truffles for breakfast followed by Peanut Butter Smidgens and way too many cookies after dinner. My Mother-in-Law had these amazing Pecan Cookie balls. The ones with the powdered sugar on the outside. I swear I ate at least 2 dozen mysself. It was bad. Real bad. But MAN they were GOOD.
Anyway, my body didn’t really like this influx of sugar. I was so bloated and tired and bleh. Frankly, I felt like poo. That’s about the best word I can use.
So today I was all about the tracker…
I started my day with my favorite breakfast, a veggie omelet.
I made a classic Mommy and Me Omelet and shared an egg with Little Bean.
This is a tradition I started with Little Guy a long time ago. Click here for the story.
After breakfast the boys played with our new world map while I cleaned up a bit.
How cute are they?!? The last few days have been amazing family time for us. The Husband took a few days off and the 4 of us are having a blast. He has to work tomorrow but then we get another 3 day weekend and I can’t wait.
Anyway, lunch was my latest salad obsession.
It’s salad greens and spinach with gouda, dried cranberries and walnuts. Click here to see how I make this "Harvest Salad" for Thanksgiving. Today I figured out a 6 point single serve version…
I piled on greens and topped with 1oz of cubed gouda, 20g of dried cranberries, 2 whole walnuts chopped and 1 tbsp lite raspberry vinaigrette.
I seriously can eat this every day. It’s a fun winter salad and I don’t really like salads when it gets cold.
The rest of the day was spent cleaning and organizing. I made some pasta for dinner and then hit the gym. It was nice. I actually missed not working out the last few days. I look forward to it now as "my time" that when I don’t go, I feel off.
So that’s it. I’m back to tracking and I’m feeling good after tracking today. I want to hit the New Year running (figuratively and literally.) :)
