Ever since the Lego Movie our family has pretty much eaten tacos on Tuesday. It’s always been one of my favorite dinners anyway so I’m glad to have a reason to serve them weekly. Especially because I can make tacos super healthy and no one seems to notice — have you seen my Kale, Turkey and Black Bean Taco Filling? It’s a family favorite. I also now have them hooked on chicken tacos with avocados, which is great because I can make lots of extra and eat the chicken throughout the week.
Tonight I skipped the traditional tacos and made myself a HUGE taco salad.
There was really nothing to it. Just a big ol’ pile of lettuce and spinach, chicken, avocado, peppers, salsa, grated cheese and half a crunchy taco shell. It’s one of my all-time favorite salads to make at home. Simple, filling and super flavorful.
As for my new journal, I’m on day 3!
And I’m loving the bit of structure it’s giving me. I just jot down what I ate (with no pressure of calories or points), keep track of my workouts and what time I go to bed. I could share it here but to be honest you probably wouldn’t understand my chicken scratch or cryptic notes anyway. See…
It really doesn’t matter though, does it? The notes are just for me. Sometimes the little bit of accountability is just what I need to re-motivate myself.
And it’s working. :)
I know I’ve talked about journaling before, mostly as it pertains to food, but I’m curious how many of you keep a journal either on paper or on a blog of some sort. I tend to go through phases with it but I must admit as soon as I feel a bit out of control and/or unmotivated it’s the first thing I turn to for a shot of motivation. For some reason I find it grounds me. It helps me simplify things when I start to overanalyze. Something I do a lot.
OK, off to bed. I’m about to write 9:30 in my journal. This early-to-bed thing is becoming a habit and I like it. So much more energy in the morning. Did you see this and then this? I was killing it earlier today!
