I am doing terrible on my diet and on my blogging. But I am going to turn things around, for real this time. I’m going to start extremely slow and began by eating at home and cutting out my beloved diet soda. I actually started yesterday making cheese tortellini with alfredo sauce, a spinach salad with cheese and croutons (plus ranch of course) and garlic bread.
Then tonight I had breaded chicken with roasted potatoes and a veggie medley of yellow and green zucchini and spinach. I made the zucchini and spinach in the oven. I seasoned them with olive oil and italian seasoning, I went a little heavy on the spices (live and learn). Zucchini is a new vegetable for me since about a month ago when I tried this recipe my darling sister in law made.
Now the tough part, how much have I gained since July…. your guess is as good as mine. My scale stops at 400, but at my last doctor visit I was 413…sad face. So this is a huge journey and I think I over taxed by going to strict too fast. So here’s my new pledge:
Eating out by myself
I want to leave the option of eating out with friends or family, I don’t want to completely limit myself. But I had a bad habit of eating out for both lunch and dinner. Which was terrible for my waist line and even worse for my wallet.
I went to Aldi’s yesterday which is a discount grocery store here in St. Louis, and I walked out with SOOO much food for 106 dollars. And a robot vacuum for $75, but shh that’s my christmas present from my parents.
Stay tuned for what’s on the menu for the rest of the week on my facebook page My Weight Loss Chronicle. Happy Tuesday!
