Mini Binge and a Quick Recovery

May 19, 2016

I’ll just start today’s blog post with yesterday afternoon’s Instagram Post. 



I recovered and moved on. I know my trigger foods, yet I occasionally buy them, thinking I have mastered the food demons that continue to challenge me. I am not perfect. I never will be. I do not expect myself to be. Knowing that, helped me to move forward and go on about my day without regret, and that feels better than anything!

Do all that you can to know yourself. Love yourself. Forgive yourself. It’s life changing. I promise.

Walking Challenge

I love hearing how everyone is doing with the Walking Challenge! It’s nice to know you all are out there walking with me! I didn’t get out yesterday, (I was assembling furniture with an allen wrench, until Mike came home and provided me with a bit and the power drill. Sometimes I am so dumb. Again, knowing this, makes me a better person. Ha Ha.) but I’m on track with my miles, and walking an average of 3.5 miles a day will get me to my goal! Have any of you calculated how many miles a day you need to get in to reach your goal of 100 miles?? Keep me posted!

Weekly SmartPoints and FitPoints

Because I didn’t track over the weekend on our Staycation, I’m not really certain where I’m at on my Points for the week, but I am going to assume that I’m over, especially with the mini bars yesterday.

Hopefully the 35 FitPoints that I have earned will keep my weight maintained for the week.

My post over the next few days will likely be just the food that I eat. I want to enjoy my kiddo as much as possible, but I really want to stay on track too. Tess and Manuel will be here tonight, and Tess and I are going to my WW meeting in the morning. We are starting the weekend off on the right track tomorrow, together. 

P.S. Tess is doing an awesome job in the healthy living department. Always trying new foods, in the middle of trying some new exercise classes that she is really enjoying, she loves her WW meeting just as much as I do, and she is focused on living a healthy life.

Now lets talk about food!

For dinner, I had a few random things in the fridge that needed to be used up. I put four big Portabella Mushrooms, brushed with Olive Oil, in the oven at 400 for about 5 minutes. I took them out and filled them with a variety of sautéed veggies and some diced grape tomatoes mixed with a little Olive Oil and S&P. I put them back in the oven for about 5 minutes, then removed them and topped with Feta, Avocado and Fresh Basil. I bought the big mushrooms not knowing what I would make with them, but this was the second time this week that we ate them this way and we both really liked them.

  4. At least it wasn’t junk food.
    Those bars have some nutrition in them.
    Have fun with your daughter.
