A brand new week

Well it is Monday again. it is raining and drizzly and I left my laundry on the line so now I have wet clothes out there. YUCK!

I am feeling pretty good. I feel motivated and happy and confident that I will do this. I made Quinoa last night and I really liked it. I tried toasting it first before I cooked it and it gave it a really nice nutty flavor. Even Prince Charming liked it. I made Diet Coke chicken last night. It was good but I am going to make a few alterations when i make it again.

One more change I am making to my eating habits is that after about 8 oclock anything I eat has to be a fruit or a veggie. Something small and yummy. No big things eaten right before bed whether they are core or not.

Food for Monday
  • pear
  • 2 coffee
  • egg omelet: 2 eggs, mushroom, zucchini, fat free cheese
  • core chili
  • fat free sour cream & soy cheese
  • crystal light
  • lettuce
  • core oat cakes
  • polenta
  • tomato sauce with veggie ground beef
  • 5 points WAP--ice cream
  • pear
  • Total WAP for week 5 points

I know exactly what you mean about eating and emotions, I did the same thing Sunday. Yes, exercise is a great detterrant..(spelling?)

You're doing wonderful! Those pics from the other day were awesome! I love that you're doing core because that's what I'm doing when my ten week challenge is over. I'm kind of already doing it, but I have to follow their guidelines. Keep it up!

Just checking in to see how you're doing. I'll try roasting my quinoa next time, thanks for the tip!

I have always wanted to try quinoa and never have...maybe now I will.

P.S. Thanks for all the comments on my site...it's definitely a helpful motivator!

**NOTE TO MY FRIENDS**
Come on in for a nice cup of coffee and a chat about my weight loss journey as well as all the healthy recipes I have found, including WW points and/or nutritional information if available. I am eating a vegetarian diet and concentrating on getting healthy and hopefully weight loss will follow. Thank to all my readers for their ongoing support.
