Lunch: Arnold's whole wheat sandwich thin, 2 turkey sausage patties, 1oz. cheddar, small leftover salmon patty, small handful cashews, 1c. grapes, green tea
Dinner: Coconut top crusted flounder, stir fried green beans w/ chopped walnuts, grainy artisan garlic bread--2 pieces too much, twice baked potato half, 1 square dark chocolate
Haha, did you think I made all of that homemade?? lol. They had good ingredients though and were not
bad in calories.
I tried making my greenbeans a little different than usual. I stir fried them in a pat of butter, a couple minced garlic cloves, a pinch of thyme, a few drops of lemon juice, and threw in some chopped raw walnuts. They were toasted in the pan which gave the greenbeans a robust flavor. I was trying something similar to what Tami does with her greenbeans. Her blog is called Nutmeg Notebook. Look in my blog roll. She has some very yummy recipes. ☺
I'm trying to do more relaxing type things, so my daughter and I had a Biore' session after my shower. We look like we should be in Mummy.
Enoch thinks they are bandaids, so we rack up on "boo boo" kisses as much as we can when we are using Biore' strips. lol
My daughter is growing into a lovely young lady. She just got her first pair of glasses and they make her look older. :(
Still NOT smoking. I think about smoking a lot, but not the way you'd think. I'm not craving them. I'm just staying aware of them b/c I don't want to get caught in an unexpected stressful moment and it be the first thing I go to. It's like staying aware of why I hate it, helps me to remember this is a constant battle even if I'm not craving them. I definitely endorse Chantix by the way...awesome stuff. I cannot believe the lack of cravings I'm experiencing...it's crazy. I'm not grumpy either! I'm happy, and less stressed even though my week has been crappy. So...I'm cool...just in case
Anyway, I'm not doing great with weight loss right now. I just came off my appetite supressants and with quitting smoking, I'm beginning to wonder if I should start the calorie cap or start measuring my food religiously again. I dunno...I'm up for suggestions seriously. I don't want to gain anything back and I want to start losing again. I'm just having trouble getting motivated and disciplined again...I guess b/c I've been putting all that motivation and discipline into not smoking. I need to find a balance. Anyway, hope you all are having a great week. Stay tuned for the post I've been procrastinating on.
