I looked for my scale but I think it is too far into the mouse zone (basement) so I had to bail out on the mission. I've been doing this for 9 days and I had started to wonder if maybe I should weigh myself so I can monitor my progress. But maybe it is for the best. Maybe I'll be in a healthier mental place and less likely to end up sabotaging myself if I really don't know how successful I am/or am not. You know? So far, I'm pretty successful and it really hasn't become a stress or an issue and maybe it is best to stick with what is working. Maybe weighing myself gets my extremist juices flowing which also gets my inner saboteur going. Okay, I've just said the same thing 7 times. We all get it. I'm going to not weigh in. Wouldn't it be awesome if I never did & when I go for my physical in the summer it's a big reveal? Yes. That sounds good.
This week I also stepped up lots of the good stuff: I made homemade chocolate chip cookies, brownies, and cloverleaf rolls. I'm calorie counting everyday and emailing it out for accountability. I threw Baby a fairly elaborate tea party on the spot when she asked for it (without putting it off, or saying I was too busy)...
So all in all I'm telling you I'm getting my groove back and am feeling much more in control of my life and not just treading water. Woah... 2012 was a tough year and it was really wearing me down and dragging down my quality of life.
Sunday: Pan seared Chicken breasts (used this same seasoning... so good), rice pilaf, peas
Monday: Tomato & Meatball Soup (oh yeah, we still have this all the time)
Tuesday: Weird impulse buy: Whole Foods frozen take out style Chinese
(cheaper & healthier than take out... way too much trouble heating up so many things... it took forever)
Wednesday: Tortellini bake (we have this once a week, Mr F says "Oh I love this dinner!" every single time like it's the first time he's ever had it... maybe if I get really organized I'll post the recipe), broccoli
Thursday: Chicken noodle soup, cloverleaf rolls, salad
Friday: Lentil soup, pita, salad
