This week’s updates

I had a good week.

I am being friends with Weight Watchers this week. Trying to keep away from things that are bad for me (lots of breads, fried foods, sugar) and loading up on veggies and simple foods.

Today I opted for honey mustard dressing instead of the full-fat blue cheese I’d much prefer. Sometimes I have to celebrate the little choices.

Is two days in a row of being good too early to celebrate? I´m going to count this is a win even though today I did choose the blue cheese dressing.

I started cooking again. Even though my refrigerator and cupboards look bare, I had the ingredients for a healthy dinner: grilled chicken and black beans with onions and peppers. As a treat I added in some feta cheese. It was delicious.

I also went ahead and made a small “meat loaf” for tomorrow night. Basically, I mixed ground meat with a packet of mushroom/onion soup then cooked it as a large patty. The soup packet has more sodium than I’d prefer, but the loaf will be ready for dinner tomorrow. That counts as planning, right?

The meatloaf was good. I paired it with creamed spinach: chopped spinach sautéed with olive oil, minced garlic, garam masala, laughing cow cheese and a dash of fat-free goat cheese. Delicious, and I kept under my points for the day.

Today I decided that God is just going to have to forgive me: I had coffee.

I’ve managed to keep tracking my food all week. That’s a first in a long while. I think that as long as I keep doing that, truthfully, I may manage to keep on track. The goal is one pound per week. That’s it, just one pound lost per week. I can do that. I’m almost completely certain of it. 

What I wanted to have for lunch: a bacon cheeseburger with fries and a Diet Coke.
What I actually had for lunch: grilled lemon pepper fish with a side of green beans, and a Diet Coke.
