I had to step on the scale this morning. I just had to.
Ugh. Not what I wanted to see but totally what I expected.
Hey, I’m ROCKING the weight maintenance. My weight has been consistent since August. That’s a HUGE accomplishment for a prior yo-yo dieter. In my previous life I was only ever in 1 of 2 states: losing or gaining.
Of course I want to lose these last 10lbs, but right now may not be the best time to get all gung-ho with the weight loss goals. With Christmas in less than 3 weeks, The Husband’s birthday a few days before, a holiday cookie decorating date with Little Guy and an office Christmas party to attend (SO excited I get to dress up for something!) it’s just not realistic. Notice I didn’t say impossible. Of course, anything’s possible. I just don’t want the pressure during the holidays.
Why do that to yourself?
Nope, I’m simply going to keep doing what I’m doing: staying conscious and making good choices. It may seem like it’s not working in the weight loss department when the scale doesn’t actually go down, but it is and it will.
On to my day in food! I must admit, this whole food photo journal things is getting really fun for me.
The day started out with an old favorite…
Mid-morning I made a snack…
It looks fancy because I had to do a recipe photo shoot for The Laughing Cow (I’m one of their Community Leaders.) I’ll be posting the recipe for the pinwheels on The Laughing Cow blog in a few weeks.
Lunch was AMAZING!
I had some leftover steak so I whipped up a Cheesesteak Wrap. SO good.
While making dinner Little Bean had some Snapea Crisps and so did I.
Dinner was a quick chicken dish I whipped up. Some whole wheat noodles, peas and leftover Thanksgiving gravy was all I needed.
I had the bowl pictured and a little bit more. It was good!
After dinner I hit the gym. Wednesday night is BodyCombat!
Now I’m enjoying a cup of tea and a 100 calorie bag of popcorn. The kitchen is closed and I’m going to bed right after Revenge. American Horror Story will have to wait until tomorrow. I’m exhausted!
