Back Where I Like to Be, Mentally

March 18, 2016

It feels good to be back in control. Now that my brain is where it needs to be, I should be able to get the scale back where it needs to be. I never did make it to a meeting this past week, and I won’t be able to go to my regular meeting this morning, but I feel good and I’m looking forward to a great week ahead!

Two years ago, a friend of mine and I spent St. Paddy’s Day bar hopping. We had a blast!



Last week, we made plans to repeat that day all over again. After thinking about all of the calories that we consumed that day, we changed our minds and changed our plans to do something else later this week, maybe today, maybe tomorrow.

I ended up spending the day at home taking care of things that I have been neglecting for several days. I did take a short break in the afternoon to stop by a friends house for just a bit to watch a little of the KU game, but then back to my “to do” list.  My house felt super dirty, and now it does not, and I only had one beer. Successful, yet quiet St. Paddy’s day.

Here are yesterday’s eats….

Breakfast – 8 SP

Veggie and Egg Scramble with crumbled Bacon, and two Dates filled with Almond butter



Lunch – 4 SP

Maybe my new favorite Tuna Salad.

Red Onion, Zucchini, Avocado, Tomato, Olive Oil, S&P and Tuna, served on a bed of Romaine.



Snack – 4 SP

The second half of the Tuna Salad that I made.



Snack – 0 SP

Frozen Banana in the food processor with a few drops of green food coloring….ya know, for St. Paddy’s Day.

  4. What is that saying??
    Don’t give up what you want in the long run, for something you want in the moment.
    Sounds like your long term goals are doing well this week.
