No matter the plan... we all Blog to Lose!
After yesterday's eating fiasco I got right back on track. I woke up feeling the need to 'detox'. I was actually craving healthy food. I was also really emotional and teary-eyed for no reason at all. I do think some of this is due to hormones. Not that it matters that much really.
I had a great day and got quite a bit done. I graded and ran errands. I also cleaned out the fridge in preparation for grocery shopping. I had a load of veggies that were going bad and rather than throw them away I roasted them (onions, bell peppers, carrots, tomatoes) in the oven along with a bunch of garlic and some seasoning. Then I put them in the blender with some veggie/chicken broth mix and blended away. WHAT an amazing soup it made! It was so fast, easy, filling and healthy! My husband ate half the batch in one sitting! So proud of myself. I hate wasting food.
For a Saturday night date, the hubby and I went grocery shopping. :) I resisted temptations left and right. I never really want any of the chocolate or sweets in the store. It's usually cheap crap and doesn't even look good. This time I was eyeing everything - even the boxes of Duncan Hines triple chocolate blah blah blah. Thankfully, it didn't hurt to leave the stuff on the shelves. BUT the big big big news of the night - I found ALMOND MILK!!! YAYY!!! I keep reading about almond milk everywhere. Sometimes I get on soy milk kicks and so I was actually looking for soy milk and the almond milk was right next to it! It is so delicious. I loaded up on it. Triple YUM.
I had a short cardio workout at the gym - just before they closed. They love me when I go in there at 5:20pm. I know what they're thinking (You know we close in 40 minutes, right?) and they know what I'm thinking (I paid my fees. Move aside) so it works out nicely. :)
