This week has been a rollercoaster of dieting. I ended up having quite a few, four to be exact, bad days, and one good day. It all started when I felt weak and just needed to eat and then I gave in. I’m not going to go on and on about it but I will say I’m feeling crappy and ready to get rid of those few pounds I’m sure I gained. I’ve been dealing with hormonal issues as well, which is why I think this whole rollercoaster started. I’ve learned the hard way, not to mess with birth control but when I’m supposed to get my period on my wedding night, I had no other choice!
Anyways I have some pictures to share from Wednesday, my one good day right in the middle of the week.
I made this WW tortilla with grilled chicken, tomato, and romaine. I also had a laughing cow cheese wedge smeared inside of it. Red pepper and carrots on the side. This is just like the tortilla I make with BH coldcuts but healthier because it’s fresh chicken! One of my new favs!
This was my dinner on Wednesday night. I had 1/2 cup quinoa mixed with 4 egg whites that were hard-boiled, onion, tomato, carrots, zucchini, and red pepper. I also had a peach! I ate this ate work, hence the to-go bowl. As I watched my co-workers eat chicken parm and fettuccine alfredo I wasn’t a huge fan of the blah taste of this because I was so jealous of them even though they were clogging their arteries…but I got it down. Would I make this combo again…probably not.
Here are some other pictures I took this week:
This salad I had Monday night. It was a little filet mignon (x2) over a romaine salad with quite a bit of gorgonzola cheese and a handful of walnuts and tomato. It was delish!! We also had sweet potatoes on the side! DELISH!!
This is one of my all-time FAVORITE things to eat. It’s a Van’s waffle with almond butter and banana slices. I had about 5 of these this week, along with 1/2 jar of almond butter. Some of my waffles had some nutella/blueberries/raspberries/chocolate chips. Bananas are definitely one of my favorite fruits with almond butter…I could eat this allllllll the time. A friend of mine loves to eat almond butter with a spoon out of the jar and I have to say, I felt like her this past week with my now empty jar!
And now to today! I woke up feeling gross. We went to applebees for half-price appetizers last night at 1:15am. Horrible. They have the best appetizers ever though, especially their chicken quesadillas and for $4.50, it’s just so hard to resist! We ate a ton and came home with full bellies and passed out around 3:30. I knew I had to go to mixer since I skipped the gym all week, with an exception of Wednesday I did 40 minutes on the treadmill. It was a rough class. I was exhausted and still super full. I had a peach for breakfast just to give me a small boost. Not sure if I needed it but I always eat before I workout so I didn’t want to feel unfueled. I got through the class and then came home to nap for an hour. I made this delicious bowl of quick oats for lunch since I woke up starving!
I could have a banana because I didn’t have one for breakfast! I’m going to head outside now and get some sun. I have work tonight and tomorrow night and with all the money I’m spending lately I should be working more.
I forgot to mention…I bought a garmin! I tried to use it this morning but I don’t think I had it all set up correctly. I’m going to play around with it and I should be using it a TON this week since I plan on doing a ton of classes and cardio workouts to get off these last 10-12 pounds (should have been only 8 =(…) I will post a picture in one of my upcoming posts! Happy Saturday!
